Alex’s suggestions fell right in line with Sophia’s dream for this space: “The rug does such a beautiful thing of reflecting all the light that bounces off the walls and ceiling. The coffee table feels of the moment yet ’60s,” she enthuses. “Suddenly this whole space got so much more usable. My friends and I love piling onto those vintage kilim pillows to watch TV.”

It might seem counterintuitive, but darkening the cottage’s beams highlighted the lightness of the redone space.
 The house is on the tiny side—the front door opens right up into this main room. A rough-hewn wood bench gives it a bit of bohemian Bolinas spirit to set the tone.

A vintage Bertoia chair—designed in 1952—nails the Mid-Century Modern aesthetic. What’s more, its open black frame allows the long room to flow from living to dining space without visual interruption or bulkiness.

The gray sofa’s chenille fabric underscores the cozy feeling here. “It’s the most comfortable, soft, snuggly fabric, like lying on a blanket,” Sophia says. “It’s really heavenly.”
 “When I look at photographs of photographs, I’m never really sure if it’s right. Or I can look at the measurements of something, but really seeing how those pieces fill a space is wonderful for me. Opening up all of this art was so much fun,” Sophia says.

Sophia couldn’t have been more thrilled with the final look. “There were things we hadn’t picked out or even talked about, where Alex just surprised me. He brought in all this dishware and these beautiful place mats, which he said felt reminiscent of the textiles in my house. It was such a gesture.”  

First of all I want to apologise for being mia for the last 2 weeks. Can’t believe I’ve already failed at one of my new years resolutions. Shit! See what I’m referring to here. I’ve just been so busy at work, plus we went on a trip two weeks ago and on top of that we decided it would be a good idea to move at the end of March. So its safe to say that I’ve got my plate spilling over at this time in my life and as a result I find it hard to squeeze in blogging. But I’m back at it, so first things first…


….. better late than never….

My partner and I have been together for 14 Valentines days and we’re still not married. Lol! Why not you ask? Beats me. No man, I’m just kidding. It’s because we both haven't felt completely ready to take that step yet. We wanted to get all our ducks in a row before we settle down. It does not mean that we’re any less committed to one another, we’re already like an old married couple if you ask me. We’ll get married when it feels right for both of us. #nopressure

Since we’re in the month of looooove, I thought I’d share one of the things I've recently fell in love with. Sophia Bush’s LA Cottage is absolutely perfect! And even though I’ve only seen the living area, I can just imagine what the rest of the cottage looks like. It’s the perfect mix of modern and bohemian. I could seriously move in tomorrow. Absolute great inspiration for our new home we’re moving to. It also has exposed beams in the living room. Now I can’t wait to move!
