Interior inspiration: Emma Thomas

These sultry, romantic, dark spaces by Emma Thomas are perfect for weekends like this when the rain and irritable weather makes me want to retreat and curl up with a good book.

These spaces look tell an artistic story, no?

These are the perfect interiors for a rainy weekend. It's sunny here, but rain scheduled for the rest of the week, so it's a nice reminder that time spent indoors can be cozy and wonderful too! Hope you're having a great weekend Christina!

Hey-as you know I do the layout for Radiant magazine and featured your items a few times. Lots of exciting things happening with the magazine and its about to reach thousands of people receiving copies!

So get excited cuz most likely you will get some big hits on your store:)
Hope you had a lovely weekend!

I dig that kitchen! It takes a great designer to make walls like that look chic. I love layers of peeling paint (as you said, they tell a story). But me being the obsessive-compulsive painter that I am, I couldn't live in rooms with this much obvious "history". But I do think they are really beautiful :)

Raw brick walls always get earthy and yet so contemporary. This one is particularly interesting with the markings and how modern the countertops are...Love it!
