Big House in the Little Woods

Here at STUDY we tend to think of ourselves as urban creatures. Big box stores give us hives, and the sight of a mini-van barreling down a two lane city street has us, well, feeling empty inside. That's not to say there isn't more to the world than skyscrapers and readily available public transportation. STUDY was reminded of this last weekend when we took an impromptu trip to Michigan. Saugatuck and Douglas to be exact.

The Paper Habit

Via Printeresting

STUDY has been bucket-deep in Benjamin Moore paint lately, the fruits of which we hope to share with you here in the coming weeks, but in the meantime - and in an effort to remind us that there are alternative wall coverings out there - we thought we'd take the time showcase some wallpapers that are inspiring us right now.

STUDY prides itself on a clean-lined classic aesthetic, but upon occasion our craving for the plush and ornate takes over. When faced with this urge, one must open a bottle of chilled muscat, soak in a warm bath anointed with various flora, then dry oneself with vintage linens (preferably monogrammed with some other lady's initials). Or, we could just head to the Careful Peach Boutique located in Oak Park's Harrison Street Arts district.
