The walkup to this California home is gorgeous. The high gloss black door paired with the boxwood topiaries and classic terracotta pots are so perfect.

I love the indoor/outdoor feel in this room. Look at the view to the courtyard! The blue and white garden stools bring colour to the outdoor area, while a neutral palette flows effortlessly between each space.

Love the living room below! A primarily neutral palette, but filled with so much interest and texture. The zebra hide rug is a perfect addition to this space and a great way to break up the large area rug and create a more defined sitting area.

I have had the photo below saved for awhile on Pinterest and I still love it today! From the dark walls, to the tulip table, to the striped rug - this room is stunning and put together so well.

No words needed for this bathroom. I know most people wouldn't think about painting their entire bathroom high gloss black, but the space below shows how amazing it can look when done right! The chrome accents, basket weave flooring, and wood elements balance the space, while the art adds interest.

Another classic space! This open concept kitchen/family room has a relaxed yet inviting vibe. Blue and white again!

The New York City apartment below is so fun. A velvet couch, animal print rug, AND blue and white ceramics - no need to say anything further!

There are literally hundreds more stunning photos in the book and I would highly recommend adding a copy to your collection if you are looking for any new books. 

Have a great weekend everyone!
