This week is my birthday week and in the spirit of a new year, I've decided to go in a new direction with the blog too :) So, in addition to fashion posts, I'll be including the other thing that inspires me most, Interior Design! After all, the two are so related and all part of what I love most - the wonderful world of aesthetics. Hope you like the changes! xoxo Crystal
Let's jump right in!
So, I just moved into a new apartment and decorating has been both exciting and challenging as I decide which direction to take it. Through the process, I've been forced to articulate to myself what my own style really is. Lately I've been pouring over and devouring design blogs and magazines like no tomorrow, but the design I keep coming back to again and again is Washington DC designer Darryl Carter's 1840 Virginia home. Elle Decor featured the home in their May 2008 issue and I can't seem to find anything I'm more drawn to or a more perfect design!
If this is an indicator of what my style is at the moment, then I guess I'm "rustic modern!"
Take a look inside Darryl's beautiful home! I love the muted color palette, contemporary lines mixed with antique pieces and the rustic elements like weathered wood tables and benches!
