Happy Memorial Day weekend! To help get you in the mood for a relaxing long weekend, today we’re sharing plenty of inspiring spaces made for taking it easy. So put your feet up, soak up some sun, and enjoy the best interiors, places, and products this week.

Today, we’re perfect spaces to unwind, from a home with easy elegance in Virginia, a new space with a Mid-Century soul and a cozy and eclectic cottage in Long Island. We’ve also got shoppable products to help make you (and your space) a little bit more stylish.

A Home With Easy Elegance

For this french inspired home, designer Marie Flanigan brought a sense of easy elegance that makes you feel right at home. Using shades of white oak flooring, and natural stone, the home combines formality and the needs of a family of 5. We’re particularly fond of the playroom, where dark tones were brought in for a sweet space that still feels sophisticated.

 

How To Bring In Organic Modern Moments

Adding some organic modern style to your space is no sweat with some simple accessories (which are all on sale!). A set of leather placemats will liven up your dining table, while a patchwork pillow will bring modern and handmade to your living room.  And in the bathroom, an ethnic-inspired shower curtain will bring a pop of subtle pattern.

Prints With Purpose

We’ve got an easy way for you to escape while stuck at home: embracing travel photography. For some great options, look no further than NY based photographer Eryc Perez de Tagle. His recently launched print shop features dreamy images from all over the globe, whether you prefer a sunset over the pacific or a majestic mountain range, and can be purchased framed, as calendars or even notecards. And as an added incentive, 10% of all purchases made through 5/25 will be donated to the Dayton Food Bank.

A Space With Mid-Century Soul

Taking inspiration from Mid-Century elements (like transom windows, terrazzo floors, and a carport) this new Texas home definitely has an old soul. Designed by Mark Odom Studio, the layout is centered around a courtyard, with an abundance of natural light flowing in, while an open floor plan that connects the kitchen, dining and living spaces brings the home into the 21st century.

Inspiration At Offsite Online

Want to see some of the new work from designers all over the globe- all from the comfort of your couch? Now you can thanks to Offsite Online, a virtual design exhibition. With the goal of providing an outlet for designers in a time when it’s become difficult to promote and share their work, the site showcases over 100 brands, designers, and students with a modern feel. The exhibit also includes some of our favorite (and most inspiring) LA-based brands like Atelier de Troupe, BZIPPY, and Estudio Persona.

Cozy Cottage Life

Designer Glenn Ban transformed a tiny cottage (just 600 sq ft!) in a super cozy and extremely charming home. Formerly an artist’s retreat built in the 1800s, the Long Island space got a coat of white paint throughout and a mix of antiques and rustic chic pieces. It’s further proof that small spaces can be full of big inspiration.
