IN YOUR HOME: NICK OLSEN

After a big week of traveling in Argentina, I spent some quality time relaxing at home this weekend. I was finally able to dig into the stack of magazines piling up on my bedside table. The best one in the stack was definitely this month’s House Beautiful. (If you haven’t already perused the mag, head to the store and pick one up now!) This issue focuses on small space design (lots of great ideas here), and I was thrilled to see Nick Olsen’s work included in the feature. A former Domino contributor, Olsen always inspires me with his use of color and pattern. I was especially inspired by this space: look what Olsen did with only 300 square feet! I adore the color palette – especially those bright green accents – and all of the little details.  Take a peek at these pictures!
