oh my man jeffrey bilhuber. he’s just got a way with kook and circumstance and tradition and twists that makes my brain confused yet content all at the same time.

i could study his interiors for hours, learning the peculiar ways of mixing and pairing, his devil-may-care color combos and his jaunty angles for furniture. i ain’t even mad at him when he turns a chair out, just for crazy’s sake. do you jeffrey. do you.
2 — a doorway with just a peak of a rainbow striped wallpaper inside. it’s like willy wonka lives here! just inviting you to explore… tell me more!
3 — that pillow combo is a real #daretomix. a muddy brown ikat with a pleasantly plump and cheery motif on white. it makes no sense, but i like it.
4 — the custom shades let you know who’s boss. down to the red wiring, these lime green shades pack a custom punch that says decorated, but not dour.
5 — grasscloth just adds another layer to the mix. it’s cozy and keeps the room feeling familiar. it adds an organic touch to what has the trappings of traditional.
6 — one of my fav brunschwig & fils fabric, le zebre. and when you’ve gone and upholstered a whole sofa in it, you’ve officially made it too legit too quit. not only is it gorgeous, but it has the most luxurious hand to it. go touch some.
7 — a classic french chair in silk to match the windows is a nod to elegance, but also injects lightness and personality in the room. clearly it’s a space for conversation
8 — i love the pairing of the simple geometric jute with the more precious moroccan rug. bilhuber knows when to get serious to elevate the room, but also how to ground it in real life. (and there’s that wonky chair! what’s he doing? just turning it out.)
