Before we head out for the weekend, I wanted to share an image I’ve been obsessing over for months now: a custom mural that artist Shantell Martin did for a private home in upstate New York, as seen in Elle Decor. I always have a soft spot for black and white interiors like this, but seeing Shantell’s work in this setting is a dream come true for me. Whenever I indulge myself in “pie in the sky” design elements at home, it always comes back to custom work created by some of my favorite artists. Shantell’s work has such a bold and beautiful style and it’s so fun to see it juxtaposed against more traditional interior fittings like these. If you want to bring a little bit of Shantell’s work home, you can pick up her pins and shirts online right here. Until Monday, have a great weekend and check out some of our favorite reads and finds from around the web below! xo, Grace
Beci Orpin’s home in Australia is so lovely. The arches really caught my eye (and heart).
