Apartment Bedroom Makeover Design Update

 Apartment Bedroom Makeover Design Update + Alexandria Mavis Blog

Our apartment bedroom is coming together and I have a couple great DIY's to share with you guys soon. I feel like as I was designing our bedroom it began to take a bit more of a "so-cal boho" turn and I gotta say I'm not mad about it. It's not my normal style but I find my style is always transforming and I have been trying not to make everything mid-century modern. I think if I bring a little more "glam" into it (like the bedside lamps), it will balance out more and break up all the "browns" that seem to be happening.

I can't tell you how excited I was to get this Bobby Clark art print in the mail from Australia (basically Christmas morning) she is my absolute favorite! I also want to get 1 -2 other pieces from other artists, maybe in a blue tone to bring more color into the room as it's feeling a bit "beige" still. What's your guys favorite thing about the apartment bedroom so far?

Interior Design Crush || Tom Dixon

I realized the other week that it's been ages since I featured a designer on my "Interior Design Crush" Series and was very much due for another. So of course, Tom Dixon was next on my list, as I've been such a long time admirer of His. Over the years I have fallen more and more in love with this brand (especially their lighting - which is so on point!). So, I’ve rounded up a few drool worthy spaces and a couple items I've been eyeing and lets be honest mainly just because they're pretttty!

How fun are these striped "Beetlejuice" style dining chairs. I just had to add them in and I really love these Tom Dixon Matte Black Pendants.

4th of July Backyard BBQ Inspiration with Wayfair

Alexandria Mavis

With summer now in full swing and the 4th of July just around the corner all I want to do is have a backyard shindig! Wayfair asked me to share all my backyard design fave's and how to style a great backyard to host a fabulous 4th of July, summer BBQ's and outdoor cocktail parties. 

The Shep indoor/outdoor area rug will act as an anchor for the space. The Teak Wood Round Stool can double as a side tables and extra seating when needed. The Anson Steel Fire Pit will draw everyone around and set the perfect atmosphere. I love the Casto Chaise Lounge because it can be used in door and outdoor (I'm actually, getting one for my bedroom). And believe me, everyones going to be fighting over who gets the Maura Double Chaise Lounge while watching the fireworks. Happy 4th of July Friends!
