Design crush: Katie Armour

Have you seen the August issue of Matchbook magazine?  It features the super chic & lively California home of Matchbook Magazine co-founder, Katie Armour. 

A self described "City mouse meets country mouse", Katie's home is young, fresh, and infused with plenty of vibrant color.  It's plain to see, Katie is fearless.

Her living room's eclectic mix of gingham & leopard prints along with the soft lavender walls keeps the room playful & exciting.

I'm certain her collection of coffee table books were picked up at flea markets from around the world.  Don't you?

I love the way Katie hung her artwork above the gingham screen to balance the height of the draperies on the opposite wall.  So smart.

Lovely little details from the pop of red coral to the abstract artwork on top.

And can you believe Katie was brave enough to chop off all of her hair just weeks before her wedding?  She rocks that pixie cut!

The inspiration in her corner workspace spills over the borders of the corkboard onto the walls and floor.

Her bedroom is classic country mouse, don't you think?

I love the use of personal items for display.  They give a sense of history and personality to a room.  Don't you love how Katie displayed her collection of jewelery?

I wish I was brave enough to go this bold.

So, what do you think of Katie's home?  What is your favorite room?
