Thoughts on millennial pink? Over the trend? Seen enough? I felt that way until I saw this cute as a button apartment by Washington D.C. based Zoë Feldman Design. So cheerful, so warm, so inviting. May I say so rosy? It puts a smile on my face.
It’s Sunday, and you can stay home and clean and do some really exciting meal prepping for this week (that’s what I’m doing on this rainy day) or you can go out and do something for YOU like get your nails done. Something I haven’t done in probably 20 years. EEEKKKK. Laquerbar in the San Francisco Bay Area promises great nails, great drinks, and unabashedly feminist values. Sweet! Monochromatic themes of pink and purple with light wood finishes and raw concrete came together for a fresh, millennial-friendly, yet sophisticated vibe. An oversized gallery wall of female icons and role models completes the space’s fun, girl-power attitude. Designed by Form + Field.
Give me Haussmannian apartments any day of the week and I’ll be a happy camper. This architecture is incredibly inspiring and makes the rest of the decor shine. Like in this apartment designed by Agathe Convert in collaboration with Amélie Buvat. A mix of dark and light paint colours, and the prettiest pink I’ve ever seen on the kitchen cabinets. Lots of built-in storage solutions makes this space functional on top of being gorgeous.
If you’re stuck going in to the office on a Sunday, it would be no sweat if it was as cool as the Oakland, CA office of Black Girls CODE (an inspiring organization trying to increase the number of women of color in the digital technology space by introducing girls 7-17 to CS – which I LOVE. 20 years ago when I was in the computer science program at a local college, I was one of maybe 5 women, and that included my twin sister. And we 5 were white or Asian). Designer Kīyonda Powell used such stunning, jewel tones in this space, and lots of fun patterns in fabrics and wallpaper.
