Moodboard 01 | Meraki





It hasn’t been very summery in Seattle as of late, which is actually unusual for this time of year. August is always obnoxiously hot. We’ve had heavy clouds, windstorms (elongated power outages!) and of course, rain. Now that it’s September, the weather is starting to match the season again. The first time I visited Seattle (a few years before we moved here) was in September for our honeymoon. We went on an Alaskan cruise and stayed in Seattle for a few days beforehand. I’ll never forget that morning plane ride (which is unfortunately the last time I was on a plane). The clouds were so thick and fluffy. It was like a giant quilt blanketing the city. There were bulges and ruffles and the occasional hole. I thought we were going to crash during the landing because there was so much fog, we literally couldn’t see the ground until we were on it. It was crazy but in hindsight, it was still one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. September is probably my favorite month for that reason. Well that and that it’s our anniversary month.

I gathered these images into a moodboard when reflecting on the recent days and also thinking of a vacation I’ll hopefully be taking very soon. The darker days can get your down but most of the time I like the moody weather. The sky is always changing here, there’s never a dull moment (or an ugly one). If it’s foggy, chances are I’m having the best day. As someone who creates, I’d be lying if I said I had time to be out of the house anyway. Speaking of time, I have a pile of homework to tend to and a packaging project that I need to get started on.

Hope you’re Sunday is relaxing, gorgeous, and filled with good weather (whatever kind you like!)

xo, heather

Interior | Spacious Australian Apartment


rob-mills_walsh-street_luxury-apartments_residential-architect-australia_003 rob-mills_walsh-street_residential-architect-australia_residential-architect-melbourne_004 rob-mills_walsh-street_residential-architect-melbourne_award-winning-architects_005 rob-mills_walsh-street_interior-designer_luxury-apartments_002

Can you believe how spacious this gorgeous Australian apartment is?

I’m especially enchanted by the kitchen and bathroom! Okay, the giant closet is pretty nice too… Seriously though, that bathroom is perfect! The double sinks and elevated bath and shower are so lovely. Oh and did I mention that it has a separate bath AND shower?

I have a love/hate relationship with tans, beiges, yellows and browns when it comes to interior design. In the US, beige walls and tan carpet are still the norm for so many apartments and it drives me crazy!! The good news is that it does seem to be changing, slowly but surely. It’s not that I want all apartments to look the same, it’s quite the opposite. They all look the same right now. A little variety and forward-thinking design could do us all some good.

This is a great example of a house that has a medley of the above-mentioned colors. However, when designed well, it has the ability to look unique and absolutely beautiful.

How are you feeling about your cities interior design?

Interior No. 11 | Contrast







Images via here and here.

I first saw the bedroom photo on Pinterest and it immediately caught my attention. The dark wall with the white bedding and gray blanket really fits my mood (and also the current moody weather here in Seattle). There are so many small details about this home that I love. I adore the workspace styling and the black wall creates the perfect amount of contrast.

Interior No. 10

I came across this gorgeous Swedish apartment the other day and I’m literally obsessed with it. There is not a single thing I dislike about any of it. The windows, arches, open floor plan, Scandinavian furnishings, wood floors… It’s all perfect.

When can I move in?



Noteworthy No. 06 | Accessories



Hello! I hope the week is treating you well so far! It’s only Tuesday but and I’m already exhausted. Only 3 weeks left in this semester so that means a lot of finishing up and starting of new projects. It’s so hard to find time to work on personal projects when you have a day job + go to University. Hoping there will be a calm soon, even if the next storm is around the corner.

Here are a few items I’ve had my eyes on for a while, plus a few I just found recently.

This Swedish home has such a beautiful bright open kitchen and I adore that it opens to the garden patio. I love the fresh mix of greenery indoors as well. There are a lot of eye-catching details in this home but that giant kitchen with those expansive ceilings is definitely the winner. Okay, the patio is pretty great as well.
