For those daydreaming about redesigning their home while stuck inside of it, here’s a little inspiration to get you started.

Staying inside your home all day tends to lead to a variety of thoughts. From made-up games to play with your kids to an entire reorganization of your closet, it’s necessary to get creative while in quarantine. 

If you find yourself rethinking the design of your guest bathroom, formal living room, kitchen or any other element of the home, we’re here to share a little inspiration, courtesy of some of Northern Virginia’s most reputable interior designers. While sitting on the couch this afternoon after a long workday, scroll through Instagram pages full of aesthetically pleasing rooms of all styles to pass the time.

Our girls’ room is one of the few actually “finished” rooms in the house, and because yellow has always been Gisele’s favorite color, (seriously, this girl has opinions!!) ran with it. (Now that Aurora- 2- has thoughts she says yellow is her fave too 🤷‍♀️). It’s generally always a mess in there but I think because it’s so sunny and happy in there, I don’t mind it as much. ☀️The walls are in @laurenliessandco #lltextiles Gisele’s Web and pillows are a mix of vintage, LL Textiles, and pieces from my new collection with @bedbathandbeyond {I’ve added close-ups of the comforter (available in stores & online) and duvet version of it (available only online) so you can see the embroidery details I’m obsessed with. (It comes in a natural color too that is more true to my photo than what’s shown online.) 💛 + happy Friday!!

Fantastic Friday with these photos done by @christykosnicinteriors showcasing our design work in this stunning home of our repeat client. We have been working with this client since 2015. She’s glamorous and loves pink touches. The entire home is WOW! We decided to elevate the pink a bit so when she walks through the door she is surrounded by colors she loves. We grounded the design with an amazing area rug from @romo_washingtondc that is gorgeous in person. The coffee table is marble and we added fun books and a faux succulent @ndi_flowers in a modern vase for greenery. #gracethomasdesigns #functionalandfabulousdesigns #loudouncounty #loudouncountyva #interiordesign #virginiainteriordesigner #familyroomdecor #pink #romo #happyclient
