Couple Crush: Gen & Ben Sohr


Did you guys see the tour of Ben and Gen Sohr’s home on One Kings’s Lane???  It’s awesome.  This couple is too cool for school.  I love their bold yet not TOO crazy look and thought I’d share it along with some picks on getting the look.

This kitchen- yes please.

Love the brass open shelves flanking that oh-la-la range.

A great graphic wallpaper in the entry hall adds some drama, but paired with simple, classic sconces to keep it from getting too bold.

Love a good black walled powder room with a gallery wall- this one has a particularly great collection of works.

A simple roman with greek key trim looks graphic but classic and the funky mirror really shines on the dark background.

The living room is bright and light but again, a cool, collected look mixing traditional and modern pieces.

LOVE the black painted door frames and the wishbone chairs paired with a simple and inexpensive table from CB2 (linked at the end of the post!)

On the top floor of the house there is a playroom/den/ bunk room that employs black walls again.

I wish there was cool, vintage Persian rug in here in red/blue/ orange tones- would warm up the floor and add an extra layer of texture and color against the black. But I obviously love the black and white buffalo check!

This bathroom has a funky wallpaper from F. Schumacher on the walls, but in black and white it doesn’t scream “trendy”.  They use a lot of simple, inexpensive bamboo roman shades throughout the house- I always love using these- both alone or layered under drapes- it adds a lot to the look of a space.

A cute boys room and bathroom.
