I’m currently working on a little girl’s room in a really cool modern house near the beach. The owner has amazing taste and is, like me, a Brit who has lived in the States for many years. She wants to mix the clean modern lines of her gorgeous Southern California home with some eclectic, slightly off-kilter, colorful messiness often found in British homes.
Here’s what’s inspiring me:
I love all the mix of color and print grounded by the white wall and beds. It doesn’t match and that’s why it works. By the way this is the home of actor Mark Ruffalo and his wife and two kids.
The bed itself is amazing, must be custom-made. But it’s all that white with pops of vintage looking print and color that I love. Really modern.
I never tire of flag garland. I’ll be making some similar to this for this project.
Here’s some I made for my office:
I want a couple of shades like this scattered around the room.
And a wall like this, but with more stuff. And with chalkboard paint behind it.
And maybe one of these from West Elm. On a desk or a bedside table for late night reading.
My bathroom, before and after.
