Inspiration for Casual Living Spaces

Love everything in the home of Cosima von Bulow Pavoncelli designed by Markham Roberts. The whole home has a warm, layered feel. It appears effortless but in reality is harder to achieve.  Keep in mind, Cosima is a Dutchess, I don't think any of this is from IKEA. It takes some investment but I would like to lean into this aesthetic.  I like this English sofa with nail head trim and ikat pillows.  It is flanked by modern end tables layered with books and topped with gourd lamps.

Peter Dunham's one day makeover of an LA home.   Linen block-print fabrics from his own line provide muted color. The chairs are from a Paris flea market.  He adds more texture with a natural woven rug (from IKEA!) and cowhide from DWR.  This room leans masculine but seems to have a good balance which I appreciate.  I want my three boys and husband to feel comfortable in our home.

Bookish. Mercury glass vase from West Elm converted to a lamp, clever. 

More from Peter Dunham.  Linen textiles, natural woven rug, layers. Nice.
