I get about 15 home decor catalogs delivered to my house every month, both a blessing and a curse. There’s usually so much pretty to look at that it all starts to blend together, so it takes something a bit more special to pique my interest these days.
The past couple catalogs, CB2 has really impressed me with both their products and styled photo shoots. Once a super modern, minimalistic sister company of Crate & Barrel, they’ve recently embraced a more transitional feel. While most products are still sleek on their own, they’re using more natural materials (think warm woods, leather) and styling them in spaces that are historic, raw, or even a bit traditional.
That juxtaposition of modern accessories placed in traditional spaces and architecture basically epitomizes what I’m drawn to as of late, and I think it’s a great example of how a brand can evolve with both trends and the needs of its consumer. Plus, their prices are pretty good considering the pieces, so there’s that! Alright, enough talking, here’s what I’m so crazy about.
Tribal inspired dhurrie rugs
THAT DAYBED, heart eyes. Plus that little stool – easy DIY. Also loving the cute cafe table.
I love that they demonstrated how their products can work just as well in a restaurant/coffee house. Especially digging the swing arm wall sconces and black and white mugs/pottery.
Here’s a functional way to break up a big room – leave your bed floating and place a desk at the head or foot. Also, that fireplace is great, though I’m thinking this may have actually been shot in a living room, not a bedroom.
I think this bed is VERY cool. It would be a great accent to some killer wallpaper, allowing it to shine instead of competing with a massive headboard.
Yes, I’ll take those amazing windows. Love the plants and art on the ledge, and the layering of rugs.
A little glamour by way of quirky accessories – I’ll take that all day everyday.
Pink is making a comeback. Yes, I said it. This bedroom proves that pink can feel sophisticated and not solely suited for a nursery. That chandelier is simple yet beautiful, and I am digging the black wall. I also love how they carried black into the accessories on the wall, almost as an extension of it.
I looove this little office. Tall ceilings, original windows, and a cute modern wingback. Done.
I love the causal feel of the dishware paired with the gold flatware. The runner looks well made, though I haven’t seen it so I can’t vouch for that!
I really want one of these leather benches. And that sofa looks like a (wonderful) marshmallow.
Another photo where the top of the walls are light, and the bottom dark. It just works.
And finally, I rounded up some items I’d love to make mine!
I suddenly need so many things. Don’t you love how that happens. You’re welcome, CB2!
