Tobi Fairley Does it Again!





I fell hard for this gorgeous kitchen and family room when I saw it on Tobi Fairley's blog (where she even shared before'n'afters!) Bless her heart because she created a whole page with details on how to give our own spaces this family-friendly look. Isn't the velvet polka-dot fabric on the back of the chairs fantastic?! (Jane Churchill for Cowtan & Tout) It's fun and elegant! If I could transport myself into this space, I would in a heartbeat! To read the story behind the cool and relaxing space, visit At Home in Arkansas. And for Tobi's tips, go here! Have a great weekend!

Mark J. Williams



Holy guacamole, have you ever seen a vaulted ceiling like this?! Talk about impact! The spectacular space was designed by Los Angeles based designer Mark J. Williams. I've never seen a bed so beautifully detailed as this one either. Actually all the furniture here is incredible. I believe it was all custom designed by Mark. He's been designing furniture for clients for many years, but recently launched Alton House to make his line available to the public. Every piece is exquisite in design, but most importantly, I hear it's comfortable too! See the rest of this beautiful English Beaux-Arts home here!

Heavenly Hideaway


I'll don't think I will ever get tired of seeing the Ikea canopy bed, especially all dolled up with flowing curtains like this! This adorable room that was featured in At Home in Arkansas belongs to the daughter of Jennifer and Jeff of Herron Horton Architects and is the perfect hideaway, no matter your age! I love the fresh color palette of the bedding against all the white, not to mention the colorful design on those fab pillow shams. Those windows look pretty incredible too!

Stacey Haines









Remember that adorable coastal cottage from last week belonging to the talented photographer Stacey Haines? Well I've got more images to share from her! This story from Canadian Home & Country actually won Stacey a National Magazine Gold Award in Canada. She not only shot the story, but pitched the idea and produced the shoot. The cute cabin in Nova Scotia actually belongs to her parents and their family did the makeover together, so winning this award was super special to her! Read more about this cozy getaway here and view more amazing photography from Stacey here!

Leila's Happy Haven








I spend a lot of time looking at beautiful rooms online, but it's not too often I see ones that make me as happy as this room. And then to know it was designed by ten year-old Leila, the daughter of Velvet & Linen blogger Brooke Giannetti makes me even happier! After first finding the perfect floral rug at Anthro, she was inspired to choose Farrow and Ball's "Blue Ground" for the walls. It makes a great background for displaying Leila's colorful artwork. Don't you love the sofa, chair and ottoman?? And hello there, dreamy alcove! *sigh* I just know all of her friends want to hang out at her house now! (I know I do!) There are so many other fabulous details to read about, so head on over to Velvet & Linen for more!
