Blue and white, clean lines, a pop of animal print and hydrangeas.. It’s official, I’m dead and Hillary Taylor has been added to my list of favorite interior designers.  I need this entire room in my life and it needs to happen now.  If you don’t follow her on Instagram yet,  you will be after seeing her work. There are few things in the Instagram world more exciting to me than finding a new designer who’s work I admire and who provides consistent and captivating design inspiration. As if being tremendously talented wasn’t enough, Taylor also graduated cum laude from Princeton, worked in finance before starting Hillary Taylor Interiors and designed her own home that is absolutely breathtaking. So grab a cup of coffee and allow yourself a three minute break this morning because her work is utterly drool worthy.

Like I said, I want all of the things. The upholstery on the ottoman is the perfect shade of perwinkle and the pillows add just the right amount of texture and interest.

These windows! I love how clean and bright this space is and her choice of dining chairs and counter stools are the perfect compliment to the angles of the breakfast nook.

I personally find creams are very hard to work with. The white I chose for my living room turns slightly yellow in certain light and then when I add all of my blue and white next to it, it suddenly looks yellow.  The neutrals in this room are perfection.

Dark hardwoods are a great way to give a dining room a sense of refinement, especially if you do not plan on incorporating many antiques to your space.  The blue trim on the rug is a perfect example of how the tiniest details can bring an entire space together

There are very few things in life which bring me a sense of peace like symmetry. Except maybe chinoiserie and this room has both so….

More symmetry (sigh) and her decision to use green slipcovers creates a sense of effortless relaxed elegance. Isn’t this the look we are all trying to achieve in our homes after all?

Talk about Play Room/ Family Room goals. The incorporation of textures and varying shades of brown make hiding stains a breeze and give the room a sense of warmth. The rainbow rug screams kid friendly (in the best way), but what I love most about this space is it’s versatility.  As the children grow older, the rug can be removed and the room is instantly transformed into an equally charming and functional adult office space or game room for older kids.

As you well know by now, I have an affinity for round table skirts. The large scale green florals paired with the oversized blue and white table lamp make for a perfect vignette.

Any room that has Climbing Hydrangea wallpaper is a favorite of mine and when it fills an entire foyer and a staircase I am one happy girl.

A marble backsplash and a Lacanche range are a beautiful compliment to the more rustic wide plank hardwood floors and exposed beams.

How dreamy is this powder room? I love the pop of the brass light fixtures against the blue grasscloth.

I am a strong believer that you can never go wrong with mural wallpaper and a Bunny Williams mirror.

I love the combination of the oak with the black and white marbled floors and brass hardware. The whimsical addition of stars on the walls and the ceiling add an exciting and unexpected dash of whimsy to this  stunning butler’s pantry.

I love the wide plank hardwoods and simple elegance of this hallway.

 Ivy topiaries paired with and a farmhouse sink is always a charming combination.

If you love Hillary Taylor’s work as much as I do, her capsule furniture collection with the CEH is a must see can you can find it HERE.
