Stop & Stare


While a big part of me is ready for a more refined, clean, and simple design in my home, I find that I'm always drawn to homes that are little more funky and have personalty. My home design is all over the place. It's full of hand me downs and eclectic pieces that I buy for my "future home" (since they don't fit in my current space). I think when I eventually move I will aim for a simple design with a few fun elements. I love how these homes have standout pieces that make you stop and stare.

I feel the same way. I find it so hard to pick a style I want for my home, I'm all over the board. I want it super clean and classy but then I want to add in all these crazy colors and elements.

Oh my gosh. I want to go to there. ;)

I also feel like I'm "stockpiling" random pieces because someday I'll have rooms where things will coordinate. ::sigh:: These are great, inspiring pics!

The spaces that look collected over time are the ones that get me! Love that little french side chair with the chevron...a little pattern sure goes a loooong way in the home...great mix! So relaxed and turn key ready!

These photos are awesome. I love the neon dream sign in the bedroom. It's probably not practical for my apartment, but it's still fun to look at in someone else's :)

I can't wait as well to finally be settled and be able to really go all out when it comes to picking out decor and furniture.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Prada Marfa art piece!!! Loved it ever since GG! These are all great examples of simple rooms with a statement piece! Great finds!

:) I think I have 3 out of 4 of these images on my Pinterest too. I LOVE that first room and all the pops of hot pink in these rooms really bring life and fun to the space!

the pink and green room with the lit "Dream" sign is by far my fave. Something so hip and chic about it! :)

LOL. That's my bus. For 2 years I rode the 19 home from school.

AboveUrban said...

As much as I LOVE looking at planned room design, I love my own random home decor... plus not many designed rooms take into account a very fast, curious, and growing baby boy.

Maybe one day my home will have a defined look, probably when I retire :)

Josie said...

That neon "dream" sign is PERFECT.

Love the colours in the bedroom, including the pale pink of the walls.

Amazing inspiration! I love the first room, especially that Prada artwork! I want that for my own room, pity it's so expensive though :(

Luna said...

Love these shots!

Hope you find the balance of simple and fun you're looking for! I stopped collecting random pieces and decided whatever I buy needed to somehow work with the overall look of the room, but also be special at the same time. :)

Have a great Saturday!

These are all so inspiring and I agree with you that simplicity is very chic for a home.

I totally agree! My style is all over the place too because my husband makes furniture and he loves restoring old pieces. I love the way you used fashion books to accessorize your home--totally genius =)

lauren @ la petite fashionista said...

i'm the same way! my decorating style is all over the place. and what makes it really tough is living in a rental since i can't paint the walls and make it look the way i'd want it to..

i think even when i'm in a real house, i will want a bit of color and quirk in my home! life's too short for boring decor!

Renay said...

I love the photos! The beauty of decorating a home is that your creativity can shine through and it can be changed whenever you want : )

Jessica @ Here(and)Now said...

I am in that same transition... living in a "for now" rental, dreaming & buying things for a new "grown up" place! I don't have a "decor style" either, but buy things that I love (once I save up), and I can see my vision slowly starting to realize itself!
