Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!  I’m excited to have no plans this weekend .  I’m still a little exhausted from last weekend, which explains what a bad blogger I’ve been this week.  I hope you enjoy these pretties and have a great weekend!

Trendy Tuesday

I’m so glad Monday is over.  I’m already looking forward to the weekend (I’m hosting my friends at my parents cabin again!).  Mallory Mathison Inc. seems to be very busy, as usual; and I am thankful, as usual :)…   But I’m still an advocate of a 4 day work week!

These are just some pretty pictures that I had to share.  I discovered them in various places in the blogging/social media world.   There’s no common thread here except that I love them and had to share them with you lucky people!

The Best Feelings in the World.  I would have to agree with most of these.  Especially the “crawling into bed after a long day”.

For some reason I looove this house.

Headboard Heaven

People are getting really creative with their upholstered headboard shapes!  John Robshaw‘s headboard designs definitely take the cake (I already dedicated a post to them), but I’ve seem some other fabulous shapes and styles in the interior design world lately.

I was inspired to write this post after seeing Robshaw’s apartment in the latest Elle Decor.  Unfortunately the pictures/article are not online.  In the article, Robshaw’s bed is a four poster metal frame with an upholstered headboard that is a variation of his Bihar headboard design.

And now for some other favorite headboard designs…

What's not to love about this huge, green, round, ikat headboard?  Statement piece.

A Favorite

This is one of my favorite bedrooms of all time. And I rarely ever like yellow. I think its the touch of green and brown combined with yellow that makes it appealing. Isn’t that fabric the cutest print? It looks like Raoul Textiles (one of my favorite lines, read more here). And those monogrammed pillows? There are no words. And I’m not a huge fan of monogramming (sometimes people take monogramming too far) – but I would take these monogram pillows any day! Also notice the Greek key trim on the bedspread – what’s not to love?

I hope everyone has a fabulous Wednesday!

Never too much tufting

The title of this post is pretty dumb but I really couldn’t think of anything else.  And it’s actually not even true because I think you CAN have too much tufting.  Obviously, you don’t want to have every piece of upholstery in a room tufted.

Anyway, I love tufted upholstery!  Here is a little compilation of why:

Why just tuft the headboard when you can tuft the entire bed? [via Georgiana Design]

 

Thibaut

 

Obsessed with this wall of tufting from House Beautiful.  The Greek Key tape trim is not bad either.

One of my favorite sofas EVER.

Love the feminine legs on this Thibaut chair.

 

 What’s not to love about that gorgeous blue velvet sofa? [Melissa Warner]

 

 Of course Miles Redd has a tufted RED velvet sectional sofa in his pink living room. [source]

Traditional Home

 

Obsessed with this banquette!  What a beauty.

Nifty Nailheads

Nailheads are like jewelry for furniture.  They come in all different shapes, sizes, and finishes…

source

 

A few furniture pieces that utilize nailheads…

 

Arteriors‘ Tennyson bench

 

 

The Marcello barstool from Ballard Design is one of Mallory Mathison Inc.‘s favorite barstools.  The upholstered arms make it feel like a comfortable club chair.  And those large nailheads on the side of the arms add the perfect finishing touch. And it’s on sale right now!

 

 

Bungalow 5’s Marco side table would look great in the right setting.  Like a kid’s room or playroom.  Also available in black.

 

 

If you reallyyy love nailheads, you’ll probably like Bernhardt’s Cabrillo Nailhead Chest… A little too funky for me though.

 

 

I would like Noir’s Bacalle ottoman a lot more if it wasn’t so dark.

 

  

Nailheads should be essential on a simple, solid headboard.  Wisteria doubled the bling with two rows of nailheads on their Queen Anne headboard.

 

And now for some pinterest pictures that display good use of nailheads…

I absolutely love the Greek Key design of the nailheads on this banquette in Traditional Home.

[Nathan Schroder] LOVE the upholstered drawer fronts outlined with nailheads on these nightstands.  Although I’m a little distracted by that fabulous green lamp!

Notice the alternating large and small nailheads on this leather stool.  And they are spaced out.  The possibilities are endless.  Gina Berschneider red leather ottoman via One Kings Lane.

Captivating Canopies

I think the title of this post explains itself….  Too bad my little bedroom is too small for a canopy!  :(  I guess I’ll just have to add to my list of pretty pieces to put in my future dream home…

One of my favorite canopy beds has to be this one that I found on Pinterest.  I LOVE the way the hardware is mounted on the ceiling!  It’s so… industrial. And unique.

 

And now a few more canopy beds that I thought were pretty and/or just interesting ;) 

 

Benjamin Noriega-Oritz via Elle Decor… So soothing.

 

Charlotte Moss

 

Jonathan Adler’s bed

Jonathan Berger via House Beautiful… Antique mirror?  Yes, please!!!  And I love the rug too.

 

 

Kelly Wearstler… check out the Imperial Trellis rug!

M Elle Designs

 

Oscar de la Renta… I’m pretty sure that canopy bed is made of rattan or wicker… Interesting.

And last but not least, a canopy bed designed by Phoebe Howard that I’m sure that you’ve seen before.  But I couldn’t resist because it is oh-so-pretty.  And feminine.  And calming… I absolutely love the gathered detail inside the canopy.

Holy Headboard

Um… I had no idea John Robshaw designed headboards.  And not just any headboards.  These fabulous unique shapely ones:

The Kerala

 

The Orissa

 

The Bihar

The names are fun too!  :)

I’m a little behind on my blog reading but I just saw an old post on So Haute and I couldn’t resist sharing.

Oh and that pretty bedding can be yours too.  Just head on over to John Robshaw’s website and see what else he has to offer.  It is ever expanding.
