Back for another home tour, we are exploring airy small home style. There is something about smaller homes that lend to incredible interiors. After following along with Elena Lohse, of ThisHouse5000 @thishouse5000 for possibly years, it’s time I share their sensational home filled with personality.

Designed by Simone McEwan of Nice Projects @nice_projects today’s room of the day is a contemporary victorian living room located in London. The space reflects a fusion of traditional and contemporary elements. The design choices are playful in nature and have a character of their own. The designer worked to incorporate the personality of the homeowner into the space while still staying true to the victorian bones of the home.
There’s something about the warmer months that makes me crave cozy sunroom design. There just something so romantic about having a tucked-away seating area to host guests when the sunsets. Or having a morning coffee before the sun has warmed up the outdoors yet! Today’s amazing interior is the getaway home of Alex Bates founder of Flint & Kent and Bloomist who also designed the space. Located on Fire Island this space is the perfect hideaway from the hustle and bustle of New York City. Fire Island is on the southern shore of Long Island. Just over a one-hour drive and quick boat ride, this space is easy to get to and incredibly serene. Since everyone arrives by boat there are few cars and everyone bikes or walks around town.

Get ready to explore maximalism and color in a whole new light. Minimalism move over, maximalism is here. Inspired by ABC Home‘s latest design inspiration we are exploring a handful of spaces that are anything but minimal and are infinitely more exciting. The concept of maximalism is rooted in the idea that your home should be a reflection of who you are, which doesn’t always equate to owning more “things”. It means surrounding yourself with colors, furniture, and select items that feel like home. Whether that means you want a bright blue sofa or a bold wall of books, it’s truly up to you.
Introducing Apparatus Studio, a modern light company I have been admiring from afar. Known for their bespoke line of light fixtures, they also offer objects and furniture pieces. For the purpose of today’s post, we will just be focusing on their absolutely stunning assortment of lighting. The photo above shows off one of their breathtaking wall sconces. In this interior, they really tie the room together and add the perfect level of style.
Today we are exploring 15 sofas under $800. You heard me correctly – under $800! Nothing is more challenging than couch shopping. Whether you are looking to save or splurge picking out a sofa is no easy feat. The best part? There is a surprising amount of attractive sofas for under $800. This is perfect for someone on a budget, renting, new homeowner, or a temporary fix. Let’s get started!
This post was going to be about light muted blue walls but through my research, I found muted green interiors may just be the next big thing. They are everywhere and for good reason. They are simply stunning! Throughout scouring the web I found so many incredible examples of harmonious muted green interiors. Without further a due – get ready to be inspired to paint your whole place a similar shade of green.
When I ran across this rustic cabin makeover I knew I had to cover it! This New Hampshire cabin is completely off the grid. Alice Saunder knew immediately once she saw it that it was going to be hers. With the help of her boyfriend, they turned this bare-bones cabin into a sanctuary. It was no easy task. The cabin had no electricity, running water or even cell reception. The end result is simply amazing! It makes me want to go buy a rustic cabin right now.
Today is a stunning West Coast House Tour. There is nothing quite like a beachy neutral designed home. While I may never own one I could look at images of them all day. The owner of this breathtaking home is the owner of the natural skincare line Lesse. It’s very clear that the owners of this home embrace the neutral color palette in all aspects of life. Let’s check out this amazing home!
This Tudor House Tour is a spectacular home in LA. I love hearing about renovations and bringing old homes back to life which is exactly what happened to this home. The original idea was to re-do this home back to its original glory but after some work, a lot of structural issues came up. They got a bit more than they bargained for but were able to really customize this space to their needs. The final design turned out amazing!
There’s nothing quite like a well-decorated living room. As the center of the home, it’s important to design a space that fits your needs. Everyone needs something different. Ranging from calm – invigorating – inspiring – or cozy the possibilities are endless. I prefer a space that is light, inspiring, and feels like a piece of me. Check out these spaces for some inspiration on how to innovate your space.
I absolutely love this green trellis sitting room in Sara Ruffin Costello’s New Orleans home. I visited this house during design showcase years ago and stood in this very room and loved it. So much fun running upon it again!
Some of the ways to decorate your space inspired by this look.
If I had to describe my style, it’s a mix of traditional and modern, so I love a rustic modern home. This home from Kate Marker Interiors is the perfect combination of bright and neutral. Tall ceilings and larger than life chandeliers define this rustic home.
From the exteriors to the foyer, the continued color scheme throughout sets the tone for this beautiful house tour.

Who says small spaces can’t do great things? This small apartment from Martin Brudnizki Design Studio proves big things can come from a well thought-out space.
Martin Brudnizki carefully designed this eclectic space, where almost every surface is covered with framed art including the kitchen cabinets. Such a cool use of a small space and making walls tell a story. Notice all the unique and perfectly blended artwork throughout the space working with and enhancing the open layout.
I have a dilemma at the COCOCOZY Design House that I am renovating. The living room is extremely long and I couldn’t find the right placement for things because the layout makes furniture arrangement difficult.
That is until I recently found this long living room designed by Amanda Barnes Interiors and shot by Alyssa Rosenheck. This design works out the space just fine. Love the two long dueling pale pink velvet sofas mirroring each other at one end and the seating group at the other with leather and brass chairs and a fiddle leaf fig.
This design makes great use of the space in a long living room. Light and airy, this is definitely an inspiration for my reno project decor. Thank you Amanda and Alyssa!
Work on the COCOCOZY Design House continues.
Next step — lighting! This has been THE single most difficult design decision for this house by far. Lucky for me, Lamps Plus came on board to help me solve the dilemma. As one of our fabulous anchor partners in the COCOCOZY Design House project, Lamps Plus offered to give me lighting for all areas. Wait, what? All rooms and outdoor! Again, what?! All lighting! Yes.
Lamps Plus does have some brands they make themselves like Possini, Franklin Ironworks, 360 Lighting, John Timberland, and a few more… but in addition to those, they carry tens and tens of thousands of lights from other brands. I whittled down my selection after several visits to two different Lamps Plus stores here in Los Angeles. This was a real exercise in decision making!
