Rebecca Atwood - Living With Pattern

Brooklyn based designer and artist Rebecca Atwood is launching her first book in a few days and I was really excited to get my hands on a copy the other day. I love pattern and admittedly I am at times unsure how to mix patterns in a fun but cohesive way so this book was an eye opener for me and is packed with tons of great advice. In Living With Pattern, Rebecca demystifies how to use this design concept that often confounds and confuses, demonstrating how to seamlessly mix and layer prints throughout a house. 

Before I get more into Rebecca's book, check out all the little goodies that came with it! (Except the doilies - those are mine that I can't seem to be able to dye black. Maybe I should get some tips from her since her hand-dyed textiles are incredibly beautiful and she clearly knows what she's doing.) A side note: the cover is her beautiful Speckled Fabric in Navy.

These next few photos are a glimpse inside the book. Eye candy, and trust me when I say you are going to want ALL THE PILLOWS and ALL THE PATTERNS.

Working on a Saturday

It's my mantra. If you have to drag yourself into work on a Saturday it helps if it is somewhere stylish. Socialite Clothing showroom and offices in New York by LIFE.STYLE. (I'd love to see this wonderful space full of people and the latest collection.)

A small bohemian apartment in Spain

Happy Friday! I leave you with another project in Santa Catalina by Bconnected. This super cute 60m2 penthouse apartment has a feminine, bohemian touch. As much as I love the simplicity and style of the interior, I would be spending every minute in that fantastic outdoor space.

A renovated home in Spain

What were once 3 "huts" is now this stunning, modernized home in Santa Catalina, Spain. It sounds like Christine Leja and her team at Bconnected worked some magic with this project - I would have loved to see some before photos. Cement floors done in an old traditional way, iron staircase and windows done by an artistic blacksmith, "Tadelakt" walls handmade by experienced artisans, landscaping by special designers, inbuilt furniture handcrafted by carpenters, an exceptional finishing by our fantastic builder - and last and not least, thanks to Charlotte, the owner, with her great taste for interior design.
