Casually Elegant

The other day I stumbled across Brian Paquette Interiors via Jamie's blog.  Whoa....can I say, love his style?  I found pictures of this young family's home on his website.  I really like this style - casually elegant as I'd call it.  Perfect for a family with young kids.  Maybe that is why I relate to it so much.


While the bedding, furniture and rug are from retail stores (Serena Lilly, Pottery Barn, West Elm), it definitely has a custom and collected feel to it.  Don't you think?  I like how it is elegant, casual and not fussy.


I want to create a cozy nook like this in our bedroom.  I also love the color of the hardwood floors. I need that floor lamp.  I wonder if it is from RH?


Ahhh, I love the weathered vanity - so beautifully paired with the classic polished fixtures.  And, I love the green ticking shower curtain.  Although, I wish it just went all the way to the floor. 


I checked out his blog and spent longer than I'd like to admit browsing his photos.  Great inspiration.  






Beautiful work.  Wouldn't you agree?  I love when I find new designers (well, at least new to me) and I really get inspired by their work.

  2. Love all of these pictures! Believe it or not, there is a similar looking lamp (which I've also had my eye on) as part of Target's Threshold collection - http://www.target.com/p/threshold-2-bulb-floor-lamp-washed-wood/-/A-14158507#prodSlot=large_1_6. Seeing the above photo may just be the inspiration I needed to make the purchase....
