I'm a sucker for realism when it comes to artwork. I love a stunning replication of reality that literally appears to jump off the page at you! Take a look at the work of talented artist Elle Wills, I discovered her through Instagram and was enamored at how realistic her work is:

{house tour | via trot home}


Happy new week everyone! I've got a lovely house tour for you today via the current edition of Domino magazine. This home in Nashville belongs to homeowner and designer, Colleen Locke of Trot Home. It’s the perfect combination of classic, modern, and eclectic design, and to me, the kitchen is the SHOW-STOPPER:

 
Just look at that veining in the marble, the brass accents, and that herringbone backsplash! I love the use of a red Persian runner in an all white kitchen, and I love that a glam mirror was placed in a space you usually wouldn't see hung mirrors.









What a glamorous home! To see more of Colleen Locke's work, head to her site here.

{nursery inspiration: all neutrals}


I love seeing all of the uber neutral nursery & kids spaces out there! I have no clue if the light-white look stands up to little fingers, but it sure creates a stylish space. On the other hand, imagine how easy-peasy it would be to keep the can of white paint handy & touch it up every now and then!

Adorable! And a refreshing change from the norm, wouldn't you say? Would you brave white in a child's room?

{house tour: an artful classic}



The bathroom above stopped me in my tracks the other day. I adore the marble slathered up the wall, and the sconces embedded in the mirror. I also love the simplicity of the black and white framed photography. Just a few clicks and I found the rest of the home that this bathroom belongs to - and I was happy to find that the whole place is filled with amazing artwork! I love when art takes center stage {images via Atlanta Homes}:




Below homeowner Wendy Petersen is pictured with project designer Anne Williams. “Wendy absolutely loves white and understated elegance, and she has developed a passion for art,” explains Williams.





What a classy exterior! This home is airy and sophisticated throughout - what was your favorite element?

{before & after: a heavenly guest bath}



Ending off your week with another amazing before & after transformation - this time a guest bathroom slathered in glorious Calacatta gold marble & lucite. Emily of the Material Girls blog showed us her heavenly space this week. Here's how it once looked:

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
That is one dreamy space. I love that Emily chose a warm marble like Calacatta gold, and a lucite vanity which doesn't visually obstruct this small space. Check out Emily's full post on her stunning bathroom project here.
 
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! Happy summer ;)
