GET MY LOOK Raw & Refined

I’m thrilled to announce I’m on Style Me Pretty in a two-part feature discussing biz/life bits  and giving a tour of my home! A few months ago, photographer Bryce Covey came by to shoot my house, and it was so fun to see how another photographer would capture new details. The above shot is one of my favorites because it epitomizes my style to me, so I thought I’d create a special “get my look” post for you all!

In decorating my home, I typically follow my “5 Pieces” rule: something textured, shiny, modern, organic and vintage.  I generally like to keep it neutral (black, white, gray, gold) mixing in glam/sophisticated and natural/edgy elements — much like my closet! (And as you can probably tell, I’m very much inspired by my fave designer Kelly Wearstler.) Although many of my items are sold out or vintage, I tried to recreate the look for you here…

/ DwellStudio ‘Malakos Ink’ fabric (order custom pillows here) / ‘Tom Ford’ book / ‘Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs’ book / West Elm Moroccan-inspired ‘Souk’ rug (mine was originally purchased from Maryam Montague) / brass urchin (mine was a Target purchase currently sold out online – check stores!) / Eduardo Garda crystal box / Jonathan Adler ‘Meurice’ brass cocktail table (brass is currently sold out online – check stores, mine was a floor sample!)

Next week I’ll post more pics from the shoot. Until then, I hope you enjoy the feature and that this post was helpful in some small way!

Thank you for reading, and have a great weekend!

And I’d love to see you on twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook too…keep in touch!

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).

  1. I spy a few (Target) objects that are also in my repertoire! Seriously, what did we do with ourselves before Nate Berkus accessories? It’s all a blur…

  2. I was searching for inspiration for my blog to cover mid-century modern looks, and I must say, I love the refinement you add to these pieces. Job well done and definitely inspiring!

  3. Hi! I’m an interiordesigner from Norway and I came over your site yesterday. And I love it! So inspirational and so close to my own taste. I’m renewing our own home and I got lots of inspiration. THANK YOU!
