My Style Formula…Via Sketch 42

6 Dec

Nicole from Sketch 42 is a freelance writer and amazing artist in NYC.   I first met Nicole on twitter and immediately fell in love with her pieces!  This one is my favorites…..

I have enjoyed seeing the posts about her apartment….can you say STUNNING!! It’s very Elle Decor and the fact that she rocks Kelly Wearstler has me sold!  Her use of bold graphics paired with the black & white color palette are gorgeous and ready for a super chic cocktail party!!!  The cornice board in the master reminds of me of a living room project I recently finished. The crisp white piece works beautifully with the black walls too.

Nicole describes her style formula as..classic masculine + bold neutrals+ a heavy dose of black + mixed metal hardware+ little bit of glam.  See her post HERE.


Since I am no longer a single lady and have to consider my sweet hubby in MOST of our home’s design decisions, my style has changed quite a bit.  I actually love that my style formula has evolved into the Rustic Glam style that we live with now.  I have always loved a dash of  masculine touches in a space to balance out the girly glam I tend to gravitate towards.

My Rustic Glam style formula has two major parts.

The first part, Kelly Wearstler.  Pulling inspiration from her graphic rugs and bold accent pieces are elements that we can both agree on in our home.

The second part , Martyn Lawerence-Bullard.  Masculine elements such as natural stone, wood and leather are the perfect way to bring in the rustic element of the formula.

By adding a few elements of Tobi Fairly’s modern traditional flair, we can have a few classic pieces with great modern fabrics and colors.

It’s easy for me to add touch of glam,  Woodson & Rummerfield’s “High Style” is the perfect way to keep our home chic.

There you have it!  The Fenimore’s Style formula….let’s call it  Masculine Chic + Classic Comfort + touches of glam + natural elements + pops of bold graphic patterns = Rustic Glam!

    The natural stone fireplace looks excellent, the rustic look always gives a cosy feel to it,,
