Tobi Fairley | Rue

Marbelized It started with this planner by Julia Kostreva whose shop filled with products with a modern edge has quickly become a new favorite.

Then I discovered Scout & Catalogue’s hand dyed accessories inspired by the beaches of Mexico via an interview on Design Sponge.

A pair of timeless blue and white lamps fueled my fire–I’d swap out the shades for something custom to really make these showstoppers.

With three amazing products I was already ready to call this a trend, but the latest issue of Rue Magazine featuring a penthouse with a swirling sea of Black Crow Studios wallpaper (technically watercolor but I’m not going to split hairs here) designed by Tobi Fairley sealed the deal…

Marbelized is having a major moment and I’m on board!


Interior designer extraordinaire, Tobi Fairley, posted this photo of the delightfully whimsical Christmas tree in her daughter’s playroom and I couldn’t resist re-posting. I’m planning on straying a bit from the classic myself this year, and always appreciate those that take a more colorful approach- it’s such great inspiration!
P.S I’m also completely obsessed with this room in general. How gorgeous is the black and white damask with the pink walls? Add the framed silhouette, gourd lamp, and monogrammed pillow and I die!


Who doesn’t love a good before and after? Tobi Fairley recently shared these shots on her blog and they might be the best I’ve seen in awhile! The orange and turquoise desk area is absolutely gorgeous– I need those vintage shell prints! Perfect inspiration for my orange and turquoise bedroom. Not to be ignored, the red and navy stool is pretty fantastic too. The oxford stripe sheets and plaid throw remind me of my boarding school even though I know my dorm room never looked that good!
P.S Tobi is having a summer design camp right now and I’m almost tempted to hop in my car and start driving. Report back if you’re going!
