Corner Stores & Cobblestones

A Little Bit Longer: Home.


I love cobblestone, and I can't really pinpoint why. Im not sure if i'm making a connection with nature, or if the texture is what catches my eye. Either way, I know I really like it! On the fronts of houses, on street corners, wherever it is, I love it! What comes to my mind when I think of cobblestone is the sense of rustic-ness. Something urban, cool, yet with a fantastic nature-esque vibe. So, I put together a collage to show off my ideas for a rustic-urban street home, and here it is! I incorporated ideas for both a bedroom and a living room. Also, I sort of imagined the two rooms as if they were in a apartment in SoHo, maybe in a cobblestone building.


Some of My Favorite Pieces:


Printed Pillows: I think for an urban home, printed pillows make a huge impact! They add a sense of cool, which sets of an awesome tone!

Unique Vases: Unique or un-ordinary vases are a great addition to any room, especially one that you want to have a certain vibe to! Besides, they come in the coolest shapes, textures, and designs!

Antique Chandelier: I absolutely love chandeliers, but sometimes Id like to sway from the crystal delights and go off to ones a little more worn. I especially love this brass chandelier!

Vintage Ottomans: Adding more to the urban vibe, I think a vintage ottoman is a good piece to add to a living room. I absolutely love the design of its legs, especially the wood carvings, and the velvet cushion is lovely!

Rustic Bed: I absolutely love this bed, especially because of its headboard! I love the collection of all the different types of wood as they come together, and the colors are great too! Also, colored throws on top of it add a pop of color.

Printed Rugs: Ive always been a fan of printed rugs, especially ones with cool patterns! For a room like this, they would work best in neutral colors, or semi-dark colors mixed with neutrals (ie: dark red with brown or black).

I am absolutely obsessed with bookshelves, especially the style like the one you showcased.

Ikea is always an affordable route to take when looking for bookshelves. And I love those printed pillows! You just can't have enough pillows :]
