IN DA HOUSE: FEMININE HOME OFFICE

in da house feminine office 1

Do you share your living space with a dude? Chances are you’re like me and dreaming of feminine spaces that just aren’t in the cards for you. Yet, I feel as though the home office is a unique space where you can get away with girly touches. If it’s your space to work, you could argue that pink hues and gold finishes are a requirement for your productivity. There are studies to prove those things boost brain power. Trust me on that one.

This series exists to help narrow down my inspirational interior image collection to define my personal style and serve as a guide for our next place. I don’t exactly plan on getting this level of feminine to fly with my guy, but a girl can dream. Here are the details that I’m loving:

Soft Textured Pink
White Parsons Desk
Statement Metallic Lamps
Framed Art and Inspiration Boards
Sleek Office Chairs
Simple, Yet Stylish Organizers

WINDOW SHOPPING: URBAN OUTFITTERS

Urban Outfitters has been known to surprise me, in good and bad ways. It can be off-putting to see relics from my childhood – Lisa Frank holiday cards or a My Little Pony pint glass anyone? – marketed to the younger set as “vintage novelties.” Yet I wanted to feature some great finds from their “apartment” section. While not technically filed in their “rad stuff” section – alongside the actually awesome giant googly eyes – much of the apartment stuff is in fact quite rad. With styles ranging from mid-century modern to edgy contemporary, their furniture and decor are fit for a more, dare I say, mature living situation. Just steer clear of the crazy shower curtains, OK?

IN DA HOUSE: KITCHEN

Kitchens are undoubtedly my favorite room in the house. Sure living rooms are comfy and bedrooms are plush, but there’s just so much fun going on in the kitchen. I drool over countertops (quartz and carrera marble please!) and size up the floors. What pulls and faucets finish off the look? How did they integrate the appliances? I mean, if you’re without a personal chef, you might as well cook in style!

In my first look at inspiring kitchens, and later kitchen details, you’ll see that I was attracted to light and airy spaces, pops of color and subway tile. Not much has changed, but these spaces seem particularly elevated. The rug above and the light fixtures below, for example, really add a polished look to the space. You’ll find strategic use of bright colors are balanced with open shelving with plenty of natural light. These elements, my friends, are what dream kitchens are all about.

Now who’s cooking? I’ll pop open the wine! ;)

IN DA HOUSE: BEDROOMS

Last time we took a look at bedrooms, they were beautifully soft and airy – many with a tufted headboard. While I still love that, and included a couple more below, for this next installment I wanted to open it up to something a little more glamorous and risky. Why not make a statement in the room that is truly all about you. Does something ridiculous make you really happy? Give it a try! Chances are your room will make you ridiculously happy.

So what am I loving about these bedrooms? Let’s break it down.

Lux finishes – especially gold!
Pattern and texture play in layers
Simple, clean bedding
Big windows framed with flowing drapes
Statement benches at the end of the bed
Mixing design styles and eras
