inspiration: the wishbone chair

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

If only I could drop $800-900 on a single chair... These Wegner Wishbone Chairs come in a multitude of colours and really work in almost any space. They mix both swedish design and the down-to-earth, homeyness of the wicker - so they really are appropriate in both upscale design and relaxed living spaces (see the Portugese home on the bottom left). I'm especially a fan of the mint green chair and the lacquered beech one as well. Check these bad boys out here!

Have a good Tuesday!


for the empty walls

The walls of my new apartment bedroom are feeling pretty bare at the moment. While I was focussing on decorating the main living room of the apartment, I completely neglected the walls of my bedroom! As a result, I've been doing much online browsing for some art and print inspiration for my room. Here are five prints that will liven up any living space!

1. Small Gold LOVE print 8x10
2. Antique Capsicum Red Pepper Botanical Art Print 8x10
3. Typography Print 8.3x11.7
4. Day of the Dead print 8x10
5. Food Pattern Art 11x15

Stay fabulous,

If I had all the money in the world, I'd without a doubt buy this entire SS13 collection from J. Crew. I'm especially a fan of that gorgeous blue maxidress in the middle. You can check out the rest of the collection online HERE.

Hoping you all are having a fabulous September!


the beachouse; medoc, france

I know that school just started, but I'm basically already planning a vacation.. What can I say, I just love the idea of exploring new places and discovering little gems of must go spots! Also, I've been on a France kick lately - Paris by day, the beautiful countryside by night - and this place. I mean come on, look at at.. one word: obsessed.

living room inspiration board & submission info!

Above was our original plan for the living room of our new apartment. Although this plan has changed dramatically, it's interesting to look back and see where our initial inspiration came from. We'll be sharing our new apartment as soon as everything is settled in and is exactly how we want it. A chevron rug may or may not be making an appearance...

If YOU are also setting up your brand new space, or think your dorm/apartment/house should be featured on 2OAK, then we'd love for you to send us photographs HERE. We are hoping to feature a bunch of well-designed spaces for others to be inspired by! So share this post with your fabulous friends, and your space may be featured on 2OAK!

Looking forward to seeing your emails!
