As the days get shorter and talk of El Nino grows louder, I can’t help but wish hibernation was a real thing for humans. Having a biological excuse to stay inside and cozy up for months at a time sounds like a lovely idea — especially when you think about hibernating in the room above. I can’t help but to picture myself curling up amongst those lush blankets and throw pillows, coffee in hand, getting lost in a book, stack of magazines or binge-watching my favorite shows.
What makes the space is the variation of textures. Between the soft Flokati rug, faux fur throw, and knitted pieces—the space just oozes coziness to the nth degree. The dark, romantic floral art piece and the Serge Mouille-style swing arm lamps balance out the look with a touch of moodiness. I mean, if this is what hibernation looks like, sign me up (but let’s get rid of the no eating or drinking rules).

It should come as no surprise that we love ourselves a good white interior. They offer the perfect backdrop to accent with fun textures, colors, and patterns – so a white room is anything but boring! In the spirit of such a look, we’re bringing back our Room Anatomy series with this stunningly refreshing space.
The texture play happening here is what really makes the space come to life. Between the Beni Ourain rug, the live-edge wood coffee table, and the woven leather chair–a healthy dose of organic textures work to compliment the angular white walls. And a white linen sofa?? Well those are essentially blank canvases where you can think of throw pillows as your paintbrush.

I daydream about having a warm, welcoming, and casual dining space to entertain guests similar to this week’s Room Anatomy. My favorite feature of this space is the mix of a rustic dining table with the black modern spindle back chair collection. Half of any dining space design includes the accessories for a perfect tablescape. The modern flatware featured with black resin handles is effortlessly elegant and pairs nicely with a modern line white place setting. I have had Sarah Cihat’s gray porcelain serving bowls on my wish list for a long time. The pure black pigment and hand crafted detail add a unique accent to the table.
Happy New Year! Caitlin and I are very excited for another year of Room Anatomy inspiration. I thought we would kick off the year with a space that is clean and crisp. I love how the fur throw at the end of the bed adds texture and warmth. Accessorize with only a few of your very favorite pieces to keep the space feeling minimal and free of clutter. Dramatic photographic art really complete this look. Blow up some of your own images or be on the look out for unique prints with simple black frames.

When it comes time to hunker down at home and be productive, Catherine Kwong’s home office has the perfect balance of style, order, and functionality. Minimizing clutter is essential to staying focused. Hide office essentials in closed cabinetry and use a few acrylic desk accessories to keep your space tidy. Paint or wallpaper the back of tall bookcases to add a vibrant and warm color to the space. Use a sculptural and yet functional desk lamp to eliminate glaring overhead lighting. Studies have shown that placing flowers near your workspace can make you calmer, more productive, and increase creativity! Rotate seasonal flowers in your favorite small vase or a simple silver mint julep cup.
