soft and airy californian home

Ahhhh I’m in love.

Allow me to introduce you: this is the home and workspace of the decor / fashion blog Mint + Varnish, and it’s stunning and I want to marry it.

Tucked away near the California coast, the loft belongs to M + V owner Valerie Wildes and her husband (plus their two gorgeous cats)! Valerie describes her personal aesthetic as “simple, clean, and intentional”, which I think perfectly sums up her space — it just oozes dreamy Californian vibes.

The bed is one of my absolute favourite features, and Valerie mentioned that it’s even handmade!

“I met a furniture maker at the Rose Bowl Flea Market and I worked on creating the design with him. The bed contains side and back tables and has hidden storage under the mattress, which has helped us while living in such a small space.”

Have a scroll through the gorgeous photos below (try not to drool on your keyboard) and be sure to check out the Mint + Varnish blog for some cool decor inspiration!

      I know right, my house is definitely doing something wrong!

    Oh my, it’s like the best of the ’60s married to Vintage Industrial. I love it – I’d take that laundry cart in a heartbeat!
