Friday Finds :: Pinterest Faves

Happy Friday! Holy cow, did this last week seem to fly by or what?! I’ve been busy decking the halls, wrapping gifts and checking off the gift lists for loved ones.  Even though I didn’t find time to blog, I still visited one of my favorite sites for inspiration: Pinterest. Here are a few of the most popular pins in the last few weeks:

Book Review :: Carrier & Company Positively Chic Interiors

Their interiors reflect a spectrum of styles from bohemian glamour to country charm. from modern luxe to elegantly traditional. Husband and wife design duo, Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller of Carrier & Company make it all look effortless too. It’s therefore no surprise that the couple’s work has caught industry and media attention as they were named to the Architectural Digest Top 100 in 2013 & 2014 and Elle Decor’s A-list for 2015. When asked if I’d like to review Carrier & Company’s new book, Positively Chic Interiors (The Vendome Press), I jumped at the chance. Released today and filled with over 200 inspiring images, readers are given an inside look into their process for creating charmingly personal, beautifully balanced and positively chic interiors. In the book’s introduction, Carrier & Company explains that they “are dedicated to creating the firm foundations of functional beauty that are necessary in order to live with ease, style, and comfort.” Their design approach resonates with me and I know this is a book I will reference and treasure for a long time. Here’s a look at a small sampling of the gorgeous images that fill the pages of this delightful book.

Walls with a Wow Factor

Let’s talk wallcoverings. They are a critical part of setting the mood in any space. Walls are a great place to add color, pattern and texture. Glam them up or tone them down using paint (typically the least expensive route), wallpaper (more expensive, but great way to incorporate pattern) or fabric (typically the most expensive). From vintage to modern, I’ve rounded up a rooms that have walls with a wow factor:

Located at 233 Old Sage Harbor Road in Bridgehampton, New York the designers transformed the barn style house into a decorating masterpiece. One notable trend throughout the home was the use of the color blue. I’ve pulled a few images of the showhouse featuring the the hue that typifies coastal living.
