Made-a-Mano-Backsplash-in-Blue-Remodelista

Today after a lovely brunch in Brooklyn, I stumbled across Remodelista’s beautiful patchwork patterned tiles post, and I couldn’t wait to share the images here (and add a few of my personal favorites from Pinterest). I’ve been super into the idea of pattern mixing with tile in kitchens, bathrooms, on floors, etc for a while now. God willing, if I’m ever call myself a homeowner here in NYC, I’d love to create moments like this in my apartment. It is also a dream of mine to design my own patterns/tiles like this, and mix them in this patchwork style. A DREAM I tell you! So until then, get into this patchwork pattern inspiration. And happy MLK day!

Don’t these tiles look great with bold colored furniture? Also loving the contrast between the graphic tiles and raw concrete floors/brick walls. Would move into this place in a second. For more images like this, check out my Pattern board on Pinterest. Get into it!

Today I’m giving you a glimpse into the home life of Frank Muytjens, head menswear designer at J.Crew. I’ve seen editorial features on Frank for a while, popping up in magazines and online, but I particularly enjoyed this profile at Elle Decor giving readers a tour inside his country home 2 hours outside of NYC. Not only does Frank have excellent taste when it comes to designing menswear (at least half of my wardrobe is J.Crew these days), but he’s equally adept at designing beautiful interiors. When in the city, Frank calls Williamsburg, Brooklyn home (we’re neighbors – I must meet him!), and he’s created an equally beautiful space there. So happy Friday, and get into these beautiful interiors by Frank Muytjens, the man behind the men at J.Crew.

 

Living room – looooove the light and flowers.

Simple kitchen.

In front every great designer, is a great desk. It all starts with a desk.

Love the painting on the wall, and the fan/stack of National Geographics.

How amazing is this closet? SUCH ENVY.

Love the bed. Neutrals forever.
