rehab box: michigan living and dining

If you're new to our blog, welcome! We've been overwhelmed by all the support lately and have been pinching ourselves that we get to do what we love AND inspire others. I (Emily) have been REALLY BAD at blogging consistently, which is great because it means we're busy, but would be really great if I could find time to post more often. How does everyone do it?! Ideally, this blog would just blog itself. When's that app coming? 

We thought today seemed like a good day to share a little more from our Rehab Box collections. These two boxes were for our kitty loving, whiskey collecting clients, Priya and Fraser, based in Michigan and are two of our favorites! They have great taste, a love for vintage and mid-century accent pieces, and were all around awesome to work with. Wanting to be more hands on and not quite ready to commit to a full service designer, the box was a perfect fit for them.

Check out our Rehab Box options (some might call it e-design) and see how you can get in on the action! We're in the NYC area but you don't have to be. We can work with you no matter where you live- except if you live in Hawaii, we'll have to come take measurements.  

In other news, we have 2 new projects to photograph in the next couple weeks which we're totally excited to share, and I just finished shooting our place which you can see sneak peaks of on instagram to be featured on a major blog near you. Happy Friday everyone! 

In progress: Lauren + Alex's Nursery

Rehabitat was moonlighting in Chicago late last week to throw a baby shower bash for Miss Lauren, due in August. And we had the best weekend. Babies are in the air! (If only literally, amirite?) So we thought now is as good a time as ever to share our design board for Lauren + Alex's colorful-yet-gender-neutral nursery. Of course there's a little pink here and there because, PINK. And generally we feel passionate about not limiting specific colors to specific baby genders because, well thats boring. 

Lauren and Alex have a great room already started with fresh white walls begging for fun art, built-in shelving that fits perfectly in a little nook and lots of space to show off lots of cute baby schtuff. We had a really great time organizing and styling and making baby mobiles and laying around eating left over baby shower desserts. We were even lucky enough to have baby Drew keep us seriously entertained with his unbearably cute smiles and hilariously typical baby coos and giggles. It was a baby filled weekend, to say the least. Check out the below photos for a glimpse of the shower we threw, the unfinished nursery and the mobile we made! 

Oh! And here are some "befores" of the room when it existed as a guest room/ craft room. Please excuse the poor quality! Already, the new white walls make the room feel twice the size and so so fresh.

rehab box: brooklyn living + dining

August has been a busy month filled with travel, family, and work with this here post brought to you from an especially cute apartment in Chicago.  Just a quick update on our latest and greatest Rehab Box for a very sweet client in Brooklyn. What you can't see is her existing jealousy-inducing turquoise Brazilian hammock which served as the inspiration for her natural, globalist interior. Read more about our Boxes here!

what's your fancy: hollywood regency dining room

We've found creating concept boards for our full service clients gives everyone (client and us!) a better idea of the direction in which the space is heading. In this case, we were looking to create a more formal, hollywood regency inspired dining room that maintains a healthy balance of vintage and new. Even with a similar formula, the options feel very different, but beautiful, if we do say so! Which one do you fancy? Leave us a comment!
