Woven Wall Hangings by Brook & Lyn

colorful string wall art // Emily Henderson's home // Domino(source)

The colorful, eye-catching string wall art in Emily Henderson’s home (featured in Domino) had me thinking how much I love that woven wall hangings are making a comeback. Although the 70s retro macramé are popping up in interiors, I’m most drawn to a more refine, modern look. The woven wall art by Brook & Lyn is just that. The Los Angeles based studio founded husband and wife team, Mimi Jung and Brian Hurewitz creates stunning works that are truly a blend of the new and the nostalgic.  Jung, with a background in art and graphic design, weaves the creations on custom looms that Hurewitz makes. Doesn’t’ that sound so romantic? Each unique piece incorporates natural fibers suspended from simple copper rods. Love, love, love. Take a look for yourself.

Lulu & Georgia Giveaway and Bathroom Styling

bathroom styling // simplified bee

Our new bathroom still needed a little styling especially one wall above the toilet. I teamed up with Lulu & Georgia for some super chic decor items for the space. I instantly fell in love with a photograph of a beautiful cactus plant. The gray tones and organic pattern look amazing with the marble tile. Love it! I also spotted the Retrograd Vase and liked it’s mid-century modern vibe. I filled it with succulents from my garden for a pop of color. To finish out the look, I selected a three wick candle housed in a timeless tin with a metallic knob. The cedar with scent with hints of vanilla is amazing. Every bathroom needs a candle like this – and don’t forget to pair it with an adorable matchbox like this! And for a limited time, grab some for yourself at 20% OFF at LuLu & Georgia using discount code: BEE20 (expires 10/22/14).

My home office has moved to a new room in the house and needs to be updated (just need to find the time!). I’ve been searching for inspiration and I love this colorful, fresh and airy workspace I spotted in Domino Magazine. The bright artwork, colorful ikat chairs and crisp clean lines are what drew me in. If you like this style too, here’s some home office decor and similar items to help you recreate the look:

Bold & Bright :: Miami Beach Apartment Tour

Recently House Beautiful toured the colorful Miami Beach apartment of interior designer, Robert Passal (loved his master bedroom for the Hampton Designer Showhouse in 2012). The mix of modern and traditional used throughout is a personal fave as well as the classic blue and white color palette that flows in both indoors and out. Passal is a master at combining pattern, texture and color. Take a look and I think you’ll agree!

To get just the right watery effect, he even paints the door in a bright blue car paint. What? yep.

Love the combo of pattern and color in this image. The Louis XVI–style chair upholstered in an African batik fabric looks amazing paired with the stunning swirl painting by Henrique Oliveira.

Love the clean, modern lines in the kitchen and the pops of bright color.

Passal mixes artwork and accessories beautifully here in the apartment’s entry and creates a fun, unexpected work area. The modern Tom Dixon chair is a personal fave!

In this bedroom, Passal covers the walls in a traditional blue and white toile, features an elegant blue velvet bed and adds a fun green accent with bed linens.

In the bathroom, square marble tiles cover both the walls and floor. Love the painting hung above the tub. So daring!

In the master bedroom, matchstick blinds are layered with ceiling to floor panel drapery in Quadrille’s Nomad pattern. They frame the sliding door beautifully.

Covered in gorgeous shimmery blue fabric, this powder room is a head turner.

And last, but not least, the outdoor patio which features traditional teak seating with blue and white cushions. It’s paired with a modern white Saarinen table by Knoll. Love!

I’m also thrilled to be over at Erin’s House of Turquoise today talking about my playroom + guest bedroom design project. More beautiful bright color!

happy decorating,

cristin
