5 Favorites :: Pinterest

Hello Monday! The start of a new week can be both refreshing and overwhelming. This week I’m planning a couple bathroom renovations, our backyard in being landscaped and the kiddos are busy with summer activities.  Although it will be a busy week, I’m thankful for a break from a heat wave we’ve been experiencing.

To start the week off on an inspiring note, I’m sharing a few of my favorite pins on Pinterest as of late. As you’ll see, recently I’ve been pulled to lots of soothing neutrals and pale shades of pink.

5 Favorites :: One Room Challenge 2017

disclosure: This post contains some affiliate links, which means Simplified Bee receives commission if you make a purchase using these links.

I’ve been following the latest One Room Challenge on Instagram – have you? As you may know I participated in the past; redecorating our foyer and then renovating our master bathroom… in 6 weeks no less! The pressure is real and so I was feeling for the latest group of decor bloggers that took on the challenge. The final design reveals were published last week and are super fun and creative. It was so hard to narrow down, but I’ve selected five designs to share with you today.

black vanity // master bathroom // house updated #orc

The black vanity with brass hardware in the master bathroom designed by House Updated is fabulous. The tribal rug with pale pinks and gray works beautifully with the marble flooring and herringbone walls. Love the rounded brass mirror too.

serene boy's nursery room

This serene, yet sophisticated gender neutral nursery room by chris loves julia is another fave. It was designed for her baby girl-to-be, but I think would work for a boy too. The brass geometric mobile is a super chic touch, don’t you think?

gracie wallpaper // dressing room // house of brinson

House of Brinson‘s guest bedroom and dressing room is also spectacular. The walls are covered in an aged blue gray paint by Farrow & Ball and panels of Gracie wallpaper hang in the dressing room (shown above). Simply stunning.

chinoiserie chic // console table

The dining and sitting room design by The Pink Pagoda is another show stopper. The traditional design is layered with chinoiserie and modern touches. I’m loving this vignette in particular… and look a fern!

floral wallpaper + pink ceiling // bedroom // the english room

At first glance, this bedroom seemed it was designed for a teenage girl, but it’s actually the master bedroom for blogger Holly from The English Room. She is known for her bold, colorful and multi-layered designs. Don’t you love the lucite bed!

And be sure to check out all the fabulous One Room Challenge Spring 2017 reveals at Calling it Home. So fun!

Book Review :: A House in the Country

Book Review // A House in the Country // via @simplifiedbee

What happens when a renowned architect and an A-list interior designer collaborate to build their dream home? The magical result is chronicled in a must have new decor book, A House in the Country which invites us in the one-of-a-kind Greek Revival-inspired house of Peter Pennoyer (architect) and Katie Ridder (designer). The creative power couple spent years searching for just the right property and in 2009 found a ranch house on six-and-a-half acres in Millbrook, New York. With more than 300 photos and illustrations, Peter and Katie invite us into their home and share the story behind the transformation. The book is simply organized into three sections – Exterior, Interior and Garden. It’s evident from just the first few page turns, that the home’s architecture and interior design are totally in sync. Don’t let the exterior traditional architecture fool you either – the home’s interior is colorful and full of modern touches. Katie’s bold use of color including pink and purple – beautifully connects and defines the spaces in Peter’s open-floor plan. In addition, the home’s garden is sensational and I love how the book dives into the smallest details including plant selection.

This home is extraordinary and the book captures it amazingly. Here is just a sampling of the stunning images.

One Room Challenge Spring 2016 :: Favorites

The last few weeks have been a bit of a blur. My kids are wrapping up their school year, we have started demoing the kitchen/great room and I’ve starting taking training classes for our puppy (see image below). I’m also quite relieved that the One Room Challenge Spring 2016 edition is complete. The experience was so much fun, yet exhausting. I’m so thankful to have worked with Linda from Calling it Home who created it all and with the generous event sponsors including, allmodernbassett mirrorbellacorcaroline cecil textilescrystoramadecoratorsbestfarrow & balljoss & mainloweslucent light shopluxholdupsminted.comwaiting on martha, and  waterworks.

Did you have an opportunity to check out the other 19 bloggers that participated in the challenge? Again, I was blown away by the talent and gorgeous designs. Here are a few of my favorite ORC transformations…

laundry room // the zhush

Who wouldn’t enjoy doing laundry in this space designed by Sue De Chiara of the The Zhush? My favorite design detail is the fabulous Nuvolette wallpaper by Cole and Sons. Perfection.

Claire Brody transformed her living room using layers of neutrals. Isn’t it inviting? Love.

Modern, organized and chic – the new office space for the Waiting On Martha team is a fave.

guest bedroom // pencil + paper // one room challenge

The guest suite by pencil and paper blog is one I’d love in my own home. I adore the blush pink walls and chinoiserie touches.

pink girl's bedroom // sketch 42

How sweet is this pink bedroom the Nicole from Sketch 42 designed for her sister? Loving the skirted table in Miles Redd fabric.

colorful den // the pink clutch // one room challenge

Paige Minear of The Pink Clutch transformed her already beautiful den into a colorful oasis. There is so much eye candy in this space from the wallpapered bookcases to the gorgeous upholstery. Love all of the layers.

Here are all the links to the other amazing transformations…
