Hello and happy Friday! I hope that you have some fun weekend plans coming up (I’ll be packing and writing!) but first, it’s time to get inspired to decorate! Oh do I love nicely pulled together rooms! Take these below, for example, from designers Ali Vanderpool and Ariana Villalta from The Elegant Abode.W hat a perfect way to kick off a weekend with a little “real” interiors inspiration!
(Above: Sink = perfection. I love farmhouse sinks and old wooden floors in the kitchen)
Ariana Villalta studied fashion and interior design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. Her background includes furniture and hospitality design, along with high end residential project management. She currently resides in Long Island City.
Ali Vanderpool graduated from the New York School of Interior Design where she developed an enriched understanding and appreciation of all styles and periods of design. She previously worked in two different Manhattan based high-end, residential firms. She currently lives in the West Village (NYC).
(Above: lovely desk area – such a nice idea to carve out a pretty corner in your home for work.)
(Above: I’m a big fan of sisal throw rugs, they bring texture and warmth into any room – AND they are usually quite durable and affordable.)
(Above: Gorgeous brick exposure!)
(Above: Great coffee table and art arrangement on the wall.)
(Above: Really cute bar display idea for the wall, perhaps in a living room or dining room space installed above a table or dresser.)
Together, these ladies run the The Elegant Abode where they design and decorate homes in the NY area and they write the Elegant Abode blog where they share their ideas and inspirations. In this post you can see a sampling of some of their work – so approachable and pretty!
Thank you ladies for contacting me to share your work, it’s always a pleasure to shine a spotlight on such talented designers!
