mix + match

If you haven’t seen Trad Home’s Spring issue yet, mosey on over and check it out asap!  While the entire issue is chock full of loveliness, it’s the colorful Cape Cod-style California bungalow designer Taylor Borsari transformed that really stands out for me. Borsari mixes contrasting textures, pattern, beautiful wallcoverings and a liberal use of saturated paint colors on furniture and cabinetry, this little jem is fun, fresh and so charming! 

The living room is my favorite spot in the house – pale pink walls, a dutch door, Moroccan-inspired curtain panels and oversize white furniture are so welcoming:

Contrasting prints on curtains, pillows and even a lamp are beautiful compliments to the seagrass chair, Morroccan-inspired table and bamboo Roman shades:

There is so much to love in this dining room, which lives larger than its tiny footprint, thanks to Peter Dunham’s Samarkand wallcovering, an oversize pine hutch and that to-die-for brass lantern:

This bedroom is surprisingly calm and cozy, despite a liberal use of color and pattern, anchored by a beautiful iron canopied bed:

A cobalt blue La Cornue range?  So stunning!


Turquoise bunk beds, red and blue wallcovering and a striped rug all mix together beautifully in this little boys room:

    Oh yes, this is lovely. Perfection! I always struggle using enough pattern that a room is interesting without taking away from the clean aesthetic I prefer. Expertly done here. Also – just started following you on insta!

    Kate- fun! I think I'm the last person on the planet to get up and running on there 🙂
