Hey everyone! I hope you had a great holiday!
Here are some of my interior design inspirations for December 2017.
First up, fur.
"Baby it's cold outsidddeeee." So yes it's cold. Fur and a cup of hot chocolate will take care of that in a second. Not only does it keep you warm but also adds a bit of elegance to any room. Boujee-ness, if you will. Fur has been a fashion favorite of mine this year as well as an interior must have. Fur blankets, fur pillows, fur ornaments, you name it. And for those of you that are bothered by real fur there's this amazing thing called faux fur;)
Two, black on white on black.
Y'all know white walls are my thannng, but sometimes it can look like you're in a very bland hospital room. Put a splash of black in there and it weighs the room down just enough to be warmer and cozier. Black frames are always a great and simple go to. You can slip in a print you love or that family photo where Aunt Janice looks a tad tipsy but you look extremely bomb. Big pieces of black furniture are great too (bookcases, dressers, headboard, etc.). They take up space which makes the room much cozier and also adds some dimension with the high contrast up against a white wall.
So being boujee is definitely one of strong-suits. In my November post I talked about velvet accents. This time, we're combining tufted and velvet. I bought a velvet tufted ottoman for my bedroom and it's officially my favorite thing. If you're wanting a pinterest-y looking room tufted is the way to go. It's timeless with a bit of sophistication and lots of style.
Books. Yes, books.
Old fashioned or well designed book/magazine covers add so much character to a room and makes it look like you do other things besides watch The Office in your free time. Put some on a coffee table or stylishly placed in your bookshelf with a book end. It creates a homey and intelligent feel. They're just a nice little "extra" that makes a room.
Combine these four aspects and you've got a cozy and homey room.
I know this is a smaller mood board, the holidays have been CRAZY! But I promise next month's will have more inspo ideas for you all. Have a great New Year!
