Hi y'all! My name is Shannon Darrough, I spend some of my time making interiors pretty and writing for Matchbook, but all the time I write my blog, I Love Your Crazy. I am so fired up that Sarah asked me to come back as a guest on Note to Self. This time I get to show you how to get the look from one of my favorite spaces. I fell head over heels for this sofa moment. After a frantic google search I discovered it is Naomi Stein's loft as seen on Design*Sponge. Stein refers to color as her close and personal friend. Clearly, the two get along great. The stripes, the navy, the Jim Thompson fabric and that hot pink — the whole place is swoon-worthy. I just had to share her good taste with you.
Say hello to Colleen, the talented author of There Comes A Yes(comes with a beautiful Tumblr) and graphic designer for the lovely Lonny magazine. I asked for her take on the "Inspired By..." series and absolutely love what she has come up with. Take it away...
Hello! I'm very delighted to share some decor finds today! I'm a longtime Note to Self lurker, so I'm tickled to be on her beautiful blog.
There is definitely a Florence Broadhurst moment going on these days, catapulted, of course, by Kate Spade. To get a similar look, pair a black and white graphic print with peachy pink tones and a shock of cerise. Add some brass accents for shine and a few peonies to boot!
I absolutely love this bar set-up, featured in Lonny some time ago and rediscovered on Pinterest. From the quirky wallpaper to the tortoise shell lamp, its focused mix-and-match look oozes with homey appeal. So, naturally I had to recreate it - I'm always imagining a future life when I can decorate just like this...
