[Blank] Here. Today I’m kicking off a new column called [Blank] Here, where I’ll be sharing inspiring places where I’d like to lounge, sleep, eat, swim, bathe, cook, etc., the list could go on and on. I’ve shared a few different inspiring spaces I’ve found via Pinterest and other blogs, but I realized I’m constantly saying to myself I’d love to sleep here or eat here, and bam this column was born!
I love pinning images that I find that inspire my living space for now and later. I’m a huge fan of metal, concrete and pops of color, so I’m sure that’ll be a running theme in these posts. But, CK has a much more ethereal and bohemian style when it comes to inspiring spaces, so it’ll be interesting to see the two contrasts.
These four photos really spoke to me because even though they’re images from different homes, I feel like the decor and construction (minus a few things here and there) could really work together in one home. The floor to ceiling windows, concrete and metal pillars in the [lounge] here image left me speechless. If I could pick out a dream space, this Seattle home is the closest in real life home I’ve seen. To me, the iron rodding throughout the floor to ceiling windows is art all in itself, the intricate details add a very chic modern touch.
[Sleep] here also has the to die for floor to ceiling windows, and my oh my what a view! The simple bed styling and frame contrast the blue wall paper so nicely. The wall paper takes center stage and warms the room up with a bit of color.
Now the [eat] here space is a little different than the first two images, but even though there’s a more rustic flair it still speaks to my more modern tastes. The white chairs, wooden table and chandelier paired with the bright pink candle sticks is just plain genius to me. I’d love to eat in a space like this, the bright pops of color really complement the more simple flair of the room.
[Swim] here, I mean hands down this photo just speaks for itself. The only other thing I’m going to say is “to die for!”
Hope you all enjoyed your 4th of July! xoxo – Bettina
