Home Details

Things have been bright and colorful over here at our little studio and although I have only made a tiny bit of new progress on the decor front recently, I wanted to share some little details that make everyday life cheery. I really like having a neutral space with pops of colors I can change as the trends come and go.We need to talk about something, I think I've started to become a crazy plant lady... I swear I didn't mean to take only photos of my plants but that's pretty much what surrounds us in our apartment right now haha. That being said, I'm not a very good crazy plant lady (although, I aspire to be) I'm doing my best but I can't seem to keep all of them 100% green. So, if you have any advice or tricks on how best to care for any of the guys you see please let me know!

  1. Your studio is lovely! I wish I could give you tips on how to keep plants alive, but I somehow managed to kill bamboo...

    1. Ugh, I have such a brown thumb. I've gotten a little better recently but it's mostly because I just buy really low maintenance plants.

  2. Your space is so cheery! I love how the walls are (mostly) white and everything is colorful. And being a crazy plant lady is awesome, I wish I had more room for them.

    1. Thanks! I need to balance the gloominess of San Francisco the more color, the better but white/neutral walls keep me sane.

    1. After a lot of crazy things I've done to my rooms/apartments/house over the years I've found it's just a better investment to go neutral and change out the bolder pieces as I get tired of them.

    1. Thanks! I've cut down the owl collection a lot over the years but it's still at a creepy-obsessive level.

  7. your place looks awesome, charley! i wish mine has this much natural lighting. it looks so pretty! :)
    i also have quite a few indoor plants at home and proud to say that they're still lookin' pretty alive even after six months so i must be doing something right. i only water them once a week, but i use very little water just enough to moist the top soil. i use mineral water by the way, not tap. my plants seem to like it better. and i also trim out brown parts of the leaves so it doesn't spread and wilt the entire thing. good luck! :)

    1. Oh thanks girl, I try! Natural light is probably the #1 thing I look for in a space besides location, it just makes like so much better, especially for someone like me that is super effected by weather.

      Thank you so much for the plant advice, I'm going to try all of it! xo

  9. I'm jealous of your space -especially the hanging terrarium on the bookshelf! So cute. Between 2 curious cats and a wild toddler, nick nacks and house plants are not an option here.

    1. Haha, yeah our camera was collecting dust but I just didn't feel like I could take a decent photo, I still don't think of myself as a photographer AT ALL, but I've sort of found my inspiration and enjoyment in it.

    1. Thank you, the gold owls were a gift from a customer a few years ago. They were an ancestors from Russia but not her style, glad they have a happy home with me!

  14. These details are so perfectly thought out! I love how they aren't just thrown together and you are slowly picking out pieces. I am obsessed with the triangle shelves and floral headband. I feel like I need to make some triangle shelves. This detailed post has left me inspired.

    Thanks for sharing, your space is lovely. I am a new follower!
