BREEZY COASTAL STYLE FROM SERENA & LILY’S SUMMER TENT SALE

Guest room decor and bedding with tan quilt, blue sheets, and white duvet from Serena & Lily best-in-class bedding on Thou Swell by Kevin O'Gara #bed #bedding #bedroom #bedroomdecor #guestroom #guestbedroom #serenaandlily #sheets #bedroomideas #homedecor #homedecorideas(Blakely Plaid Pillow Cover)

Serena and Lily’s summer tent sale is back and the pickings are good! A lot of the sale is from their bed and bath linen collections, which I’ve long been a fan of (see this guest room update and the duvet cover in my apartment bedroom). There are some great discounts in this summer sale, including lots of cute pillow covers and a few pieces of lighting and furniture in the mix. I especially love their blue bocce ball set you’ll see below – how cute is that!

WEST MIDTOWN PROJECT IN THE ATLANTA JOURNAL CONSTITUTION

Double-story living room with blue sofa, green chaise, cowhide rug, Article Abisko chair, and sputnik chandelier by Kevin O'Gara on Thou Swell #livingroom #livingroomdesign #homedecor #interiordesign #homedesign #homedecorideas

I am excited to share a first full look at the West Midtown Project townhouse design, as featured in the AJC’s Private Quarters column this past weekend! This project has come a long way since my mom moved in, as you can see in the project introduction. The contemporary architecture made a perfect backdrop for her antiques to really stand out, and I always love collaborating with my mom because the result is always a great combination of new and old! You can find a full profile on the house and my mom’s favorite elements in the article here. See a tour of the house so far through my lens below, and stay tuned for the master bathroom renovation!

SWELL SHOPPING: A DUSTY PINK PARISIAN RETREAT IN CHICAGO

Dusty pink living room design with velvet curved sofa, shearling armchair, pink oriental rug, and abstract painting on Thou Swell #pinkroom #dustypink #livingroom #pinkroom #homedesign #homedecorideas(via Architectural Digest, photography by Aimee Mazzenga)

Inspired by a Parisian salon, this high-rise condo in Chicago was wrapped in a sophisticated dusty pink wall color and filled with an eclectic assortment of contemporary furniture. The wall color is Farrow & Ball’s Peignoir, which I’ve color-matched to Behr’s Grey Ashlar paint color. It’s a chic, ashy backdrop for the pops of bright brass, pink, and celadon blue in this space. From the curved velvet sofa to the chunky white armchair, the emphasis in this sitting room is on striking silhouettes. See how I’ve pulled the look together below!

MEGHAN’S DARK GREEN MEDIA ROOM REVEAL WITH ALLMODERN

Dark green living room decor with AllModern modern home decor, Behr Dark Everglade wall paint color on Thou Swell

When I approached the finishing touches of Meghan’s media room with AllModern, I knew I wanted to pull the space together with a simplified color palette and lighter, more contemporary accents to craft a cozy, cohesive look for the small room. I started with the mural from my last college dorm room, which was the perfect piece to set a direction for the color palette with soothing blues and greens. You know I love a dark paint color in a media room like this, so I found a rich dark green paint color, Behr Dark Everglade, to paint the walls and ease the contrast with the navy blue on the sectional. See the fabulous glass coffee table (perfect for a tight room) and all of the other contemporary accents I added from AllModern below.
