This stunning Tudor style house is proof that with some paint and some impeccable style, you can keep your walls where they are, maybe even use bold colors on them, and still feel light and airy in your real life home! Let these before and after pictures wow you into giving your home a spring makeover.

After

The exterior brick was painted in Benjamin Moore China White and the front door in Benjamin Moore Greyhound.

This amazing living room features this beautiful couch from Serena and Lily, but I found a comparable sofa for a fraction of the price on Wayfair.

This lovely accent chair is worth the splurge because, you know, leather is leather.

The dining table is by McGee & Co, but I found a more affordable option on Wayfair.

Those tiles! You can find them here.┬áThe kitchen cabinets are painted in Benjamin Moore Forest Green. And really, who doesn’t love a Smeg?

The bathroom features these amazing plaid tiles, and a floating bathroom vanity to maximize the space.

The bedroom walls are Benjamin Moore Newburg Green, and can we please talk about that light fixture?! I just love those modern Sputnik chandeliers.

This is the Beach House of Your Style Dreams

This South Carolina beach house from Cortney Bishop Design is the definition of a dream home! After I saw Julianne Hough’s home, I thought for sure that no other home could compare. I was so wrong!!!

Cortney Bishop Design even caught the eye of Homes & Garden UK, and you can read about it here.

Design Inspiration— The London Brunch Spot That’ll Give You All the Feels

Take all the inspiration from this lovely brunch spot in London for your next home design makeover.

Design inspiration alert! Sometimes I walk into a restaurant and feel completely at home. The place is cozy and inviting and there’s a certain vibe that just makes me feel so dang comfortable. Other times, as is the case with my Summer visit to Hally’s in London, I feel completely jealous because I can only wish that my home could look as calm, pretty, and functional as this cute little brunch spot. Seriously, this place is cute as hell, y’all! Inspired by California beach houses, Alexander Waterworth Interiors created a space (in south west London of all places) that makes you feel like you’ve been transported to the Pacific Coast Highway. No joke.

If the super fresh look of whitewashed brick walls don’t grab you, then the soft pastel dipped chairs and chic yellow industrial stools certainly will. Reclaimed wood floors and a beautiful tile detail just below the bar stools. If you’re still not in love, there are beautifully curated wood elements, vintage decor, and greenery on simple open shelves. Even the bathroom in this place is gorgeous with it’s bold wallpaper and cool tiles. Madness. I seriously love this place.

I guess I should mention that Hally’s serves a pretty mean brunch, but it’s the atmosphere that kept calling me back (and has me questioning every design choice I’ve ever made). When I grow up, I want my kitchen and dining room to look just like this! I’m gonna step aside while you guys add all this to your Dream Home Pinterest boards. Amiright?! Check it out!

This, my friends, is home design goals. A perfect blend of modern and traditional that comes through as effortless and purposeful. I am absolutely obsessed with this space! Interior designer Jodi Morton, founder of 2to5design has created a space that is not only modern, but stays true to the Victorian architecture of this traditionally, elegant home. I just love it when a designer manages to reimagine the function of a home without destroying the character. Seriously, the dining room and the kitchen alone are enough to make me fall in love. Check out these amazing pictures and see for yourself!

Design Inspiration: Southwest Modern

Southwest modern is the next swoon-worthy design style to inspire your next home makeover!

Think of it as the happy marriage of Scandi style and Bohemian style… plus a cactus… because, well, in this life, everybody needs a cactus. Scandinavian minimalism and Boho maximalism have been competing for our affection for some time now. While Scandinavian style favors simplicity and function, Bohemian style lends itself to a more eclectic, curated design approach. Southwest modern merges the two design styles in a way that makes everyone happy. Cozy, just like we saw in this Hygge centered Scandi design, without being too busy. Rustic, just like we saw in the relaxed Boho home of Julianne Hough, without being too shabby. Curated without looking too staged. Gender neutral. Oh, and did I mention the cactus?

The best part about Southwest modern is that you don’t have to overhaul your entire home to achieve the look. Playing with texture, Northwood Supply Co. (your new favorite Etsy shop), shows us how simple touches like wall art, a cool rug, and some throw pillows can transform your space. Kacy, the artist behind Northwood Supply Co. has an Instagram feed that you should totally be following. Don’t believe me? Check out these beautiful photos that are sure to spark your new design obsession!
