simply color: corbin lee gurkin

The stormy blue wall color paired with the rustic ivory furniture and peach highlights found in Corbin Lee Gurkin’s home are absolute perfection! The home is filled with a delightful mix of what Corbin identifies as flea-market finds, antiques and photography and paintings she or her friends created. Corbin’s design aesthetic for her house was inspired by country-French style, Swedish design and her exposure to the world through travel. Can you believe she found that beautiful dress in a flea market bin for $20?! — Lauren
