My art collection is growing on Kevin Francis Design, with the addition of these new photography prints! Like the mixed-media collages, these original pieces are available unframed or framed, with five classic options: white, black, silver, gold, or burl wood. Inspired by nature, the prints pop with bright florals and blue sky and offer a contemporary touch to any empty wall or gallery in your home. See virtual placements of some of my fine art prints below! “NEW FROM KEVIN FRANCIS DESIGN: ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHY PRINTS”
Urban Outfitters’ home decor selection has always contained hidden gems, but recently they’ve been releasing full-fledged furniture collections which I’ve been loving. Their latest Pied-a-Terre release for fall includes some really streamlined pieces that bridge classic and modern with great textures and materials. From burl coffee and console tables to that pretty black-frame sofa above, I’m digging the sophisticated urban look they put together with this chic collection. Check out my favorite pieces and more decor below. “URBAN OUTFITTERS’ SOPHISTICATED PIED-A-TERRE FURNITURE COLLECTION”

In a lively historic apartment in Madrid, Spain, designer Jorge Vasquez utilizes bold contrasts of color, form, and style to define his home. The living room, with original basalt-and-marble floors and pine doors, features playful trim swathed in a cool, saturated mid-blue (similar to Farrow & Ball’s Parma Grey). The floral armchairs and modern mirrored coffee table make an energetic pairing in this space, which inspired the design board below full of finds you can shop directly. See this exuberant living room design below. “SWELL SHOPPING: AN EXUBERANT BLUE LIVING ROOM IN SPAIN”
On pastoral, meadow acreage in the countryside of Alabama, architect Paul Bates and designer Melanie Pounds conceived of a contemporary farmhouse designed for easy open-door living and entertaining. The light-filled house makes use of materiality to bring the neutral color scheme to life, and careful architectural details add character to the new-build design. Limestone floors in the dining room above transition to white oak, handsome paneling, and a few key cool-toned Farrow & Ball paint colors.

Inspired by the soft yellow “Phoenician Yellow” Plasti Dip spray paint, I created a glowing summer tablescape with yellow-painted vintage candleholders and vases. I had fun searching through my local vintage store for a few mismatched accents for the table like milk glass taper candleholders and a tin plate for holding a pillar candle. To unify these treasures I used the spray paint to create a matching set of yellow decor for the dinner table, which matched the warm glow of the candles. See how it all came together below! “A GLOWY CANDLELIT SUMMER DINNER TABLE SETTING WITH PLASTI DIP”
