Did anyone catch Austinite Chelsea Fullerton’s home tour on the Everygirl? If not, feast your eyes on this slice of design pie.
Chelsea is a lover of all things made. Whether it’s designing a logo or website, or creating a piece of furniture with her husband, it’s clear she loves the process of telling her story through design. So much so, that she helps others do the same. She launched her company Go Forth Creative back in 2012, offering creative direction to other businesses.
Judging by what she did with her home, I could safely trust her with my life.
Easy going. Lived in. Simple.
In the article, she mentions her love of Craigs list bargain hunting and shares tips on working from home. I’m pretty sure we could be bff’s.
I love the little accents of Texas throughout her home.
I’m a sucker for anything that is crisp white or mid-century. So it comes as no surprise that I was instantly obsessed with writer Kelly Oxford’s Palm Springs residence. Add in some natural fiber rugs, pops of emerald green, and some plant life, and I’m all in.
Homepolish Designer Orlando Soria (aka Emily Henderson’s old right hand man) was the brainchild behind this lovely project. Truly, he is a design rock star and I am always excited to see his work because you never know what his creative next move might be. He’s fearless when it comes to design, a trait he definitely shares with Emily. And if you follow him on Instagram you know he’s also pretty hilarious.
Loving this shot and contrast between the soft neutrals and bold emerald.
What a great idea to stagger the 2 coffee tables. Great way to fill the huge space between the sofas but not in a massive, cluttered way.
Beautiful kilim rug. And the copper bar stools really give the bar some bling.

Tomorrow is the day that I’ve been looking forward to for quite some time now. We get to hop a plane and escape to Philadelphia for Nate’s bro’s wedding! I can’t believe Memorial Day weekend is already here. (Time just flies when you are remodeling and unpacking.)
In honor of our getaway to the East Coast, I’ll leave you with this dreamy hillside home tucked in Pennsylvania’s Blue Mountains . Featured in AD, this home was designed by Peter Bohlin of the Pennsylvania-based architectural firm, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson. (I’ll have you know that Peter was a graduate of Michigan’s Cranbrook School of Art. REPRESENT!!)
In the article, Peter described the client’s desire for a timeless space. I think I fall in love with the idea of something being “timeless”…that time can pass and it remains just as true, believable, and fabulous as day one. It’s such a hard concept to achieve with all of the trends in the design world. It really makes you think hard about what will withstand the test of time vs. what is a fad.
For me, what makes this home so special is the use of materials and furniture pieces that aren’t fussy or easily dated. This must be why mid-century furniture holds a special place in my heart :).
Bon Voyage! I gotta go get ready for this trip! You will hear more from me when I return. 🙂 Happy Memorial Day weekend!
