INSPIRATION: Catskills Cabin


Modern Catskills Cabin Fireplace with Herringbone Tile
Last week Patrick and I took a short trip into the Catskills for a few days. The home we stayed in was beautiful and secluded - the perfect place to enjoy a few days in the woods. With minimal, modern decor and warm cabin-inspired touches, it was a perfect example of a mix of modern and rustic.

Pax Wardrobe Hack into Modern Walk-in Closet
Anyone who lives in Philadelphia is familiar with the closet situation here - most of the houses are 100+ years old and either don't have closets or have teeny tiny shallow closets that aren't actually deep enough to hang anything in.

Modern Furniture with Layered Rugs

I love the look of layered rugs. I wasn't able to try it out until recently when I renovated the last bedroom in our house (coming soon!) - I'd ordered a rug that turned out to be too small and figured that it was the perfect time to give layering a try!

Here's a few more examples of how layering rugs can add more pattern and texture to a space!
