simply color: juliet totten

Juliet Totten from Poppies and Posies lives in New York City along with her sister, Ellen. Juliet is a collector, and many of her favorite objects come from her grandparents. When she was little, Juliet’s family lived in Syria, which explains the gorgeous textiles around her apartment. The eclectic décor in her room is brilliantly pulled together with a soft color palette and beautiful white-brick walls. The space looks so refreshing and comfortable! — Lauren
