Snow Covered Simplicity at Christmas

Can you believe Christmas is in three days?! Literally all I want for Christmas is to wake up in this mountain house designed by Studio McGee. Unless you are living under a rock, you've probably heard of the husband and wife duo, based out of Utah. They have been literally everywhere this year. Their clean and classic aesthetic has been taking the design blog world by storm, while their behind the scenes web series and new online shop have allowed enthusiasts everywhere access into their world in such a fun way.

This pretty mountain house below was a project they completed a year ago, and just recently revisited to give it a Christmas update. I love the fresh and clean the holiday decor, relying heavily on fresh greenery (which probably makes the space smell amah-zing!).

These polished pulls are some of my all time favorites, which I have on custom made nightstands in my bedroom. They are from Schoolhouse Electric. Get them.

Dying over the natural light in this house. My house is a cave.

The tranquility of this master bedroom is so inspiring.

Wishing you all the perfect holiday weekend.

A Condo Update

Since most of us Americans are newly considering relocating to the land of our northern neighbors, today's Px3 post is all about Canadian design. Toronto based bloggers Stephanie &  Neal Sterjovski were looking to update their new condo, and decided to recruit fellow blogger and interior designer Jacqueline Clark (of Lark & Linen) to execute their vision. The result is a clean, mostly black & white (love) space with a hint of femininity in just the right place...a.k.a. the closet.

Simple furniture pieces in an all white palette leave room for great textured accessories and simple styling. This condo is proof that a pretty space can still be exceptionally livable for husbands & boyfriends alike. 

I love how emphasis of black & white in the kitchen streamline the space, while the wood accents of the barstools, kitchen chairs, and canister tops keep it from feeling too cold. Fresh flowers don't hurt either.

Black & white is also the core color palette of the master bedroom, which is such a great way to balance masculine and feminine tastes.

I can't get enough of this desk setup. Simple styling is essential for a glass desktop, and it really is such a luxury to have a desk that faces out the window.

It's really hard not harbor some level of closet envy in this shot. I love how it allows for some more feminine styling...such a polished little setup.

What do you think? Could you live in such a colorless space? Personally neutrals just speak to me, and this condo is a great example of the perfect way to utilize black & white as a core color palette. 

So the moral of this story is, when you get settled in Toronto, make sure to look up Jacqueline Clark and have her whip you up a new home-sweet-home. Also, when you have 24-48 hours of continuous downtime, make sure to go down the rabbit hole that is her blog Lark & Linen. It's good stuff.

Après-Ski

In stark contrast to Tuesday's breezy, window-open post, the weather in Atlanta is finally starting to chill. The result of this is an instant instinct to nest indoors with a glass of red and a fur blanket whenever possible!

Aerin Lauder's Aspen home is nothing new to the design community. A few years ago when it was published, it was basically impossible to get away from. However, it's really just the embodiment of cool weather chic and too perfect not to feature for this week's Px3 post. 

Neutrals are seriously my wheelhouse, and the architecture and paired down design of this house use just that to play up the amazing landscape surrounding the home. Warm wood planks on the ceiling, as well as leggy mid-century furniture keep the spaces warm despite an almost all white space. 

Touches of black anchor the space, and create a polished look throughout.

Can you imagine enjoying a workspace with that view? My view is a wall. Seriously.

A perfectly relaxing master bedroom beckons.

Beautiful light streams into every room, including the bath.

 Cashmere and coffee (and Bailey's) is all you need on this deck in Aspen...

Let's face it, it's sweater weather people.
