make it yours: emma straub and michael fusco

by Lauren

This week’s color schemes and roundups are pulled from the lovely home of Emma Straub and Michael Fusco. Emma and Mike live in Brooklyn and are often busy designing and silk-screening posters for their business, M+E. The first image is from Emma’s office; I was drawn-in by the peachy pink walls, which look fantastic with lime green and orange accents. Doesn’t that sunny window seat look like a comfortable spot to work from?

Emma and Mike’s living room is quite beautiful, too. They do a great job of mixing prints while keeping their walls and large furniture simple and solid. What an adorable, eclectic home! Click here to see the original sneak peek. (You don’t want to miss the backyard!) — Lauren
