treehouses that will blow your mind

I grew up in a house surrounded on 3 sides by a forest.  As a child of about 8 or 9, I remember taking a hammer, nails, and a few boards into the woods to try to create a hangout for me and my friends.  I had a small sledge hammer (haha, clearly not the right thing to build any type of structure) so it didn’t pan out too well.  I think I got about one step secured – just enough to pull myself up on a branch and sit there.  I miss childhood most because of the way your imagination would run wild.  You just think you can do anything at that age, and it’s pretty magical.  I never ended up with a tree house, but it was a cool place to escape to.  I have some pretty amazing memories  exploring those trails.

Here’s some eye candy in the form of some amazing tree houses.  These creative structures are like a childhood dream come true.  Happy Earth Day!

beautiful boho modern home in California

It’s all going modern in the design world these days.  Everywhere you look it’s crisp white walls, clean lines, geometric rugs, and color pops in the pillows.  And while it’s absolute eye-candy, sometimes its hard to imagine someone actually living there.  Do they have dogs? Or kids?? Do they sit in those metal chairs for longer than 15 minutes?? They must clean. Every. Single. Day. The questions just seem to just burn a hole in my brain.  Because as much as I am about beauty, a design has to be comfortable and functional, too.

So what’s the answer to a practical modern home that is chic and cozy?  The bohemian modern look, of course.  It’s stylish yet feels lived in.  I can’t get enough of the natural, understated beauty.

The ever-so-talented Becki Owens and Nicole Davis posted this project on Instagram awhile back, and it’s like the angels were singing out of the heavens.  Featured on Domaine Home, this amazing California home marries modern style with everyday comfort.

I could totally see myself hanging out here. Reading a magazine.  Basking in all that natural light.

And this kitchen! Simple, white, and gorgeous.  The rug really adds a fun color pop.

design obsession: feathers

I didn’t realize just how much I love feathers… until the other day.  I was on a run on Saturday morning and I saw one resting on the concrete.  Simple and gray, it may have been run over countless times, but it was still as perfect as ever.

I love the spiritual, natural, carefree vibe they give off.

mid century minimalist meets boho chic

  Rachel Bilson's antique arm chair

Welcome to the home of Rachel Bilson and lovie Hayden Christensen.  Rachel is best known for her roles in The OC, Jumper, and now Hart of Dixie…but since I don’t watch too much TV, she is possibly best known to me for her amazing relaxed, boho style.

Her new pad is the feature on this month’s Lonny, I suggest you check it out.  Designed by the super talented Kishani Perera, this home is an intermingled yet completely balanced reflection of Bilson and Christensen’s personal styles.  It’s beautifully blended with cultured prints, vintage pieces, and simple lines.
