design crush: mix art + interiors

i can't keep not blogging because i am busy working on this bathroom and wanting it to be all complete and perfect before sharing. so i will share some other people's projects that ARE complete and perfect. how 'bout?

today, i discovered mix art + interiors in saint simons island, georgia, via one of my faves, high heeled foot in the door. they are: "a collaboration of two designers eager to bring a fresh perspective on design to the southeast. we believe that every interior should incorporate a good mix of color, light, pattern, and styles. mix is a full service interior design firm and gallery founded by Adrian Pressley Johnson and Bethany Cassell." and also fabulous.

i love mix interiors precisely for their namesake quality - the mix. that is totally my jam. mixing things.

for example...

a dining room with light walls, a dark rug, manly shelves of books & duck decoys and girly scalloped slips on the chairs:


another dining room with a mix of more masculine dark wood and straight lines with soft colors and feminine touches:


plaids + florals, wood + white, fringe + tufting:


dark + light. traditional furnishings + imperial trellis fabric du jour:


i mean, are we all just dying over the architectural details in these spaces? another amazing ceiling, accented by a great chandelier:

herringbone. brick. floors.

hoping to build a wine rack similar to this for above the fridge when we spruce up our kitchen. notsomuch for it's wine-holding capabilities as its aesthetic pleasingness (as we all know how long wine lasts around here...):


love this kitchen banquette too, with its frilly pillows + industrial pendant:


they're also all about the mix of patterns, like in this den:


i am loving the pillows, the striped walls, and the mini shelves that look almost like sconces (but without the wiring issues i bemoan - sold!):


this room feels so accessible to me, like my future kids are hanging out playing games on the ottoman and watching cartoons, and i come over from the kitchen that i'm imagining to open up behind that couch there to bring them some snacks (captain fantastic. please note.):


i love a lamp in the bathroom. it adds such a great and unexpected coziness to the space. perfect for a powder room, where you don't want harsh lighting to break the spell of the dining table's candlelit ambiance for your dinner guests:


and of course, the way to my heart = starburst mirror. i could put one in every room:

all images via mix art + interiors

i'm looking forward to what camilla has to say in her upcoming piece about mixing styles. i have a feeling it'll be right up my alley. you?

The living room photo with the stripes on the walls and the faux sconces...from the photos I've seen of your living room couch area, this very much so reminds me of your space! Are stripes on the walls in your future?
P.S. how is your bathroom coming along? Looking forward to the photos!
