Home Decor and Design Spotlight: 010

Welcome back to another collection of homes and living spaces that are sure to inspire you with ways you can adorn your own home. I am very excited to talk about these rooms, many of them are spectacular examples of decorating done right. All right lets dive in!


A charming bathroom. I absolutely adore this bathroom for several reasons. I am a big fan of the classic white subway tile surrounding the shower, complimented by a tasteful rug and washcloths by the sink. The color pallete used for the whole room is lovely, and the splashes of color from the plants and cabinet are a nice touch. 


Textiles are in. The plush, vibrant and elaboratly decorated textiles in this room give it a comfortable, colorful and almost regal vibe. I dig it! Lately I have also been advising people to make little galleries on the wall if you have the space for it, and this room does it really nicely. Credits to Maggie Grove.

Cozy Spaces

Winter is right around the corner, and with it comes cooler temperatures. Now is the best time to invest in some warmer and more plush decorations that will keep you feeling nice and cozy indoors. Here are some examples of some rooms I came across that immediately struck me as lovely places to be during the cooler months of the year.

The cutest doorway. Sometimes all it takes is 1 clever idea that really transforms a space and gives it character. This is easily one of my favorite little spaces I came across recently! Credits to reddit user r/_planties


The warmest living room. A big christmas tree, some warm lights, and a clean space is all you need for a beautiful living room. I love the fireplace in this room ;).

Wow!! Where do I start? This has got to be one of the nicest rooms I came across while looking for inspiration online. I absolutely adore the soft pink white and plum color pallete, and the lovely paint and wallpaper on the walls. And, theres lots of natural light and the nice night-light in the corner. Well done!

Artisan Spotlight: Bonnie Belt

I wanted to try something a bit different in this edition's home decor spotlight. Not only did I want to showcase some beautiful living spaces, but I also wanted to talk about some gorgeous decorative items made by artisans from my home state of California. One of the artisans I got the chance to meet was Bonnie Belt, an incredibly talented ceramic artist with work available on her website.

Bonnie was born in Central California but moved to Southern California when she was 3 years old. Today they reside within the redwood trees of Mendocino county. She has made many stunning ceramic arts that are rooted in nature.

inspiration from the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th that focuses on creating harmony with nature and a sense of personal peace. She is also influenced by the Japanese and Chinese Arts.

The first thing that attracted me to her artworks was how detailed and living-like she created the root systems of the ceramic sculpture. The tree looks well-detailed and stunning! I love how she stylishly made the tree-like sculptures into useful household utensils such as teapots and flower vases.

A splendid, sprawling space. If I could, I would totally move into a space with an open floor-plan like this one. The free and extra space looks great just by itself. Rugs work wonders in rooms like this, and the room owner did it perfectly.


A warm setup. What really draws my eye is how harmonius all the furniture and decorations in the room seem to be. There's a variety of colors and textures but they all compliment eachother in a visually pleasing way. Well done! 

Views Inside and Out

Sometimes rooms are so well put together that you could be in awe on the inside looking IN and OUT. That's exactly how I feel about these very charming rooms.  







A grand, stunning space. When I saw this room for the first time, I imagined myself in a beautiful forest right after some heavy winter slow. Despite the winter vibes, It actually gives off an incredible warm, cozy and inviting energy. This is easily one of my favorite living spaces I came across over the past week.

The perfect place for a nice movie. What I love most about winter is the fact that everyone usually stays inside more, which means more fun indoor activities such as movie nights or pillow-forts. This living room feels like the perfect place for all sorts of holiday fun that December brings. Nicely done!
