I don’t usually share my design inspirations/crushes/muses on here as they are usually just a flash in a pan type of inspiration, not something where every season, or every project, inspires me.
However, Cortney Bishop is an interior designer that I am obsessed with, where every image and every room is something that I drool over. I love all of her projects and can’t decide which one to share here, so I chose two of my absolute favorite homes, her “Uptown Downtown” and “Good Vibrations” projects.
First, “Uptown Downtown”:
Exactly like this project’s name, I love that the design of this home strikes the right note of modern and traditional. I am particularly struck by the angular lines of the dining room, the sharp black details throughout, and the unexpected pop of fun in art, seating room pillows, and bedroom rugs. I also love how one room in the house, the study, is decorated with dark grasscloth walls and deep and luxurious colors; the fact that this one room contrasts with the remainder of the home gives me faith that my whole house doesn’t need to match!
My other favorite project is “Good Vibrations”:
The genius of this project lies in the soft blue color palette that carries throughout the home. Since the stair railing and kitchen cabinets are each painted their own shade of blue, the color is prevalent from every angle, in every room. But instead of being overkill, it’s the detail that makes the home. Then each room has a complementary shade of blue or green to coordinate, like the kitchen, with its gorgeous mint dining area. I live for the bedrooms in this home. Nevermind the breathtaking master, I would love to spend one night in any of those children’s rooms!
