no BIG DEAL!
It’s one thing making friends with so many great and inspiring accounts on Instagram. It’s another to watch them grow and blossom into their own successful lives and projects.
That’s why this month we’re focusing our attention on New Friends and Familiar Faces. Checking in with those who have been inspiring us since the beginning and those who are new to the scene.
Here are some of our favorites (all tagged #mycovetedhome in the month of March) listed in chronological order of us connecting on Instagram, from oldest to newest. The variety of styles is what we love most about this roundup, from trad to mod to glam and add a dash of boho, there’s a little bit of everything.
And as always, remember to tag us at #mycovetedhome for a chance to be featured!
Thanks to everyone who tagged us. We look forward to seeing what comes next.
As always, the #MyCovetedHome hashtag was brimming with excellent and inspiring moments this month, but what really got us going were the following spaces featuring everyone’s favorite trend that we hope never goes out of style: the gallery wall! While each of these were exceptionally personal and unique, they had one thing in common; absolutely gorgeous pieces that became something so much more when hung together.
This space by @studioplumb is just absolutely, jaw-droppingly good, and brimming with enviable style. From the eclectic gallery wall, to the jewel-tones and sculptural plants, this is one grand gallery wall.
From @k.laingdesign comes this light and bright gallery wall, replete with a living element, mirror, tribal art, fur, and a kitty portrait. The sculptural bench, fabulous pillows, and shaggy fur take this space to the next level.
This inspiring gallery wall, courtesy of @emilygradydodge, is a personal, fun and eclectic example. We love the basket, the pair of prints, and especially that gorgeous taupe vase below!
For a totally unexpected but VERY chic gallery wall, @tinkerabout hung books with their pages open to create this stunning moment. We especially love that clock and the antique card cabinet–that shade of blue is absolutely perfect.
As always, keep tagging #MyCovetedHome to show us your own take on inspired interiors and for a chance to be featured. Thanks for sharing!

2017. We hardly even know you yet your halfway gone!
This has been the toughest round-ups yet. But there we were, scrolling through the days of June when we notice a strong theme — most our our favorites, they’re dining rooms! So, we stuck with it. And that’s that — June is the unwitting month of dining rooms and these are the cream of the crop.
This mix by @suzannasantostefanodesign has everything. Rustic, modern, bold art and so much personality. So good.
Can’t get enough of what @sub_folk_collective is up to, its just the right amount of “more is more”.
The unique talent of @kim_dti always catches our eye, her home is moody, artistic perfection.
Sometimes the most simple room stands out in a crowd and @leantimms beautiful and welcoming dining room did just that.
As always, be sure to check out the fab accounts we’ve featured. They’re designers and decorators and artists and creatives to keep your eyes on 😉

Welcome to the MyCovetedHome April Roundup!
There’s something whimsical about Spring and I love how that feeling in the air seeps into the design world. Maybe it’s that pent up longing for patio season and warmer climes that’s got us all stretching for late nights (fireside) and sun-filled rooms with open windows, birdcalls and pour-overs at sun rise.
We’ve collected our favorite Instagram posts from April, using the hashtag #MyCovetedHome. These are some of the coveted rooms we could find and you absolutely need to be following these accounts!

Welcome to our latest project reveal! This was a fun project for many reasons. The house is a beautiful old ranch-style with some really neat details. However over time, previous homeowners made renovations that were less than congruent with the style of the house and totally out of date. But luckily my client was ready to bring a fresh look to the interior, one that would honor the original style of the house.
We chose KC Home Solutions to carry out the renovations and my client and I couldn’t have been happier with their work. Top notch work done in a timely manner is hard to come by these days, but these guys deliver just that.
A few “Before” photos so you can see where we started.

Panelled walls in the living room and beams on the ceiling (providing no structural support) made the room feel dark and small, even though it is actually quite a large room! The wood floors were very rustic, country looking and part of the kitchen where the sink and stove are had a very unattractive vinyl on the floor. And don’t get me started on those kitchen cabinet colors, yikes!
I’m not sure what compelled the previous owners to put that stone on the wall because when we tore it out there was beautiful white brick underneath, all it needed was a fresh coat of paint.
I love my bookshelf, but if I’m being honest, I’ve had a really hard time styling it. My shelf is unique in that it leans against the wall so it’s not totally level and because it doesn’t have sides there isn’t anything to prop stuff up against. I’ve always struggled with the area outside the two rails on either end–always wanting to put things there but it never feels right when I do. Its gone through many iterations (you can see in my previous post how it was just a few weeks ago, click here), but about a month ago I had a light bulb moment. I knew it needed to be streamlined. I love design books as much as the next decorphile, but the time had come, I knew what my shelf needed and it wasn’t books. Plants, pottery and crystals–that was it I told myself. That was all I would put on the shelf.
I decided to write a post about it because shelf styling is one of the biggest requests I get from my clients. Its tricky and can be intimidating. Everyones challenges are unique, but with a few tips to guide you, you too can master the art of shelf arranging! I’m divulging a few things I’ve learned and I’ve reached out to a few pro’s to see how they create that perfect #shelfie.
One of my biggest pieces of advice is don’t be afraid to try new things! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve re-done this shelf. If you aren’t totally happy with it, move things around until you start to get somewhere. In my case I played around with accessories I already owned and then went shopping for a few pieces after I had an idea of what would finish it off perfectly. Having a vision and a plan kept things simple–I wasn’t to stray from my 3 items: plants, crystals and pottery. Then I found that lovely stone sculpture on the bottom shelf and I broke my own rule! But the color works with the palette and I love it, so rules be damned!
*tip: group accessories together and have variations in height, you typically want things balanced without being “matchy”
I’ve always admired interior designer Amanda Steiner’s ability to create beautifully edited shelfies. Her trick to turn some of the book bindings to the back is genius, it keeps the shelf from feeling too busy. The above photo is from her own home and she says: “I like to display a thoughtful selection of books, collections of meaningful objects such as handmade pottery or framed art, and of course live plants. Arranging items so that they are visually balanced, along with keeping a consistent color palette, will give you a well-curated look.”
* tip: lean art against the wall to help fill vertical space (above photo: interior design and styling by Amanda Steiner)
Another persons styling work I love is Kyla of House of Hipsters. She is always up to something at her house and she is no stranger to styling a good shelfie. Her collection of art is admirable so it was no surprise that when I asked her to chime in with a tip she recommended art: “Add artwork you love and adore. I found an oversized watercolor on Chairish. When it arrived, I researched the artist and Google told me he was an art teacher who recently passed away. A seller on eBay bought every piece from his estate sale, and I immediately snapped up two smaller pieces that I display on my shelf. Not only does each piece match my color palette perfectly, but they also have a fun story and I love them.”
* tip: layer art and accessories and don’t be afraid to use lamps as part of the composition! It all plays a part in perfecting a beautiful moment. (above photo: another great shelfie at Kyla’s house)
