So many great details in this space. Love the mix of natural materials, the (brick?) wall that shifts from traditional subway to a chevron pattern, and that indoor "greenhouse" :)

Definitely caught my eye in my RSS feed to explore further. Winner for sure!

Apartment Therapy Chicago | CHI Good Questions: Bathroom Accessory Color?

In the first picture the tiles look a lot richer in aqua than the close-up. So if it is as high in contrast and rich as picture 1 then perhaps the way to go is to keep things a little more neutral but i think introducing pops of color is always fun and especially in a small space like a bathroom it just brightens everything up.

As far as what the accent color should be, the first color I also thought of was yellow. In combination with white it would be a nice accent in the bathroom. Also, yellow and gray are a lovely combination (there was even a post on AT a while back here) and quite frankly even bringing the aqua from the bathroom in little details into the living room would totally work too, but without getting too matchy matchy.

If you go ahead and decide to with a neutral I would go with a bright white and for the bathroom you can easily bleach things, it will pop better against the aqua as well. Then I would look for pieces that aren't too sterile and have subtle details or unique qualities.

I personally would stay away from the pink/salmon combo because I don't think a "themed" apartment/bathroom is not what you are thinking as you mentioned you want things to have a vintage feel but not like an antique store (which I interpret as maybe being too cluttered or going overboard).

To get the "vintage" look, just make sure to EDIT your pieces and to invest in some key pieces: a vintage lounge/side chair, coffee/side table, mirror, etc. Craigslist is a great resource and also through the summer there is the chicago antique market going on every weekend. By mixing old with new and accessorizing with restraint you will be able to achieve that look you want. Artwork always is great too there are tons of inexpensive options out there frequently posted on AT.

Sorry for rambling!

Hope that heps,

It is a toss-up between:

Mariah Carey's - All I want for Christmas
and Ron Sexmith's - Maybe this Christmas.

Any of the colors would make this gal very happy :)

To start off with, what a lovely couch it looks comfy!

I think the couch, even though the pear has an overall green tone to it, is basically a neutral providing a clean palette that can be highlighted with more or less anything depending on the season, mood, or perhaps more importantly the rest of your decor. That is the great thing about throw pillows. They are really quite interchangeable and are a great way to update the look of a couch. I agree with the folks at AT that bold color is the way to go, but I personally LOVE color.

I don't know if your personal style is more modern, classic, retro, eclectic or what but think of the pillow like a piece of jewelry in the sense that it accessorizes and can make all the difference and really adds a bit of personality.

I'm not sure how much experience sewing you have but if you have a hard time finding an existing pillow maybe visit a fabric store and grab some swatches and make your own? I myself am going to urban source sometime soon to look at some fabrics to reupholster this great danish chair.

I personally would say just have fun, be daring and don't be afraid! It's such a quick and simple things to change if you change your mind down the line :)
