Unhung art leaning on the walls, stacks of books with dog-eared pages—to me, these details are what make a home look lived in and full of stories (literally). I love to imagine living in an all-white apartment with not a thing out of place (ok, I want to be Olivia Pope), but let’s get real. In my real life I have well-loved books and magazines piled on every surface of my bedroom, much like Stephen Shubel’s home in Domino. And I quite like it that way! I’ll also be filing this photo away just in case I ever have to decorate a loft bedroom; I’d say Shubel masterfully made this one feel like an intimate space despite the half wall. Keep reading to bring this look home…
pillow — This Pendleton pillow is like your go-to flannel shirt in cushion form. The perfect bedding addition for cool winter months.
q&a journal — This journal asks you a question a day over five years, so you can go back and compare your answers! I got one as a gift (such a good gift) and keep it next to my bed, and it’s a quick fun way to reflect.
magnifying glasses — Maison Martin Margiela’s take on a magnifying glass.
side table — Bravo Urban Outfitters on this surprisingly stylish side table!
horn side table — Take a cue from our inspiration photo by using two night stands at differing heights. Visually it adds another layer to the space, and some extra surface area!
leather bench — I would love to place this piece at the foot of my bed for extra seating, a place to put on shoes and lay my clothes when I don’t feel like tidying (I’ll never be Olivia Pope).
