Dear OKL lookbook, Where have you been all my life?


We all love One Kings Lane for its quality, variety, interviews with designers, and beautifully staged room vignettes. I’ve bought a few things there, mostly on clearance because so much of the stock is out of my budget. Mostly I look. And look and look and look. And then I look so more; so much beauty!!

So how is it I never noticed until now they have an online lookbook with many, many room vignettes (five pages of them!!) I never encountered in the deluge of emails they send me? And get this: Each image is easily and immediately “shoppable,” which means lots of mapped links to the same or similar products!

Here are a few of my favorite OKL lookbook rooms. Of course they don’t transfer with the shoppable links, but if you follow the headline link I placed with each photo it will take you to the shoppable images on the One Kings Lane website. Have fun, and let me know in the comments what you buy.

A Nursery You & Baby Will Love


One Kings Lane

Quite honestly, this is a room most any adult would love living in, minus the crib. (Well, leave it in if you want. You can always lower the side and use it for extra seating.) I just love the giraffe picture and figurine, but most of all I want that print of the black shirt and yellow bowtie.


Casual Meets Classic in the Living Room


One Kings Lane

I’m not a white sofa fan, but I love that wing chair dressed in black-and-white ikat. The mix of high and low also pulls this room together—seagrass and hide rugs under a glam glass top mirrored table, that modern webbed chair side-by-side with the wings, and a paper lantern in the same room as a marble fireplace. The room is a model of how to mix antiques and modern pieces, and the two-tone paint job adds architectural definition.


Modern Ease


One Kings Lane

I love how all the color in this room comes from accessories—art, books, a vase, flowers. A neutral ground—walls, floors, major furniture—allows all the color and texture to pop.


Perfectly Composed Bookshelves


One Kings Lane

The writer in me loves the vintage portable typewriter repurposed to hold ephemera. It’s the first time I’ve seen one of these in a vignette where it was actually given a purpose other than to look interesting. Makes me wish I’d hung onto mine.


A Globetrotter’s Sitting Area


One Kings Lane

Or a globetrotter wannabe, which would be ME. I’m groovin’ on the mix of textiles, the funky deer lamp (?) and the pudgy-cheeked Japanese girl figurine.


An Adventurer’s Dream Bedroom


One Kings Lane

Or an adventurer wannabe—again, ME. I’m crushing on those leopard ottoman cubes and the print of the woman with the magnifying glass. And how about that necklace hanging as part of the gallery wall? Neat idea!


A Fun & Funky Kitchen


One Kings Lane

I don’t often post kitchens, but this one absolutely stole my heart. It’s the bar stools, I’m sure. The pendants are pretty rad as well, especially hung as opposites.


An Art-Lover’s Bath


One Kings Lane

Ditto for baths. Expensive tile and over-the-top tubs and showers don’t do much for me. I like function. And, well, maybe romance, which this bath has plenty of. The art is great, but what I really dig is the Moroccan/Middle-Eastern vibe from the rug, fouta towel, dressing table and bench.


The Study of Your Dreams


One Kings Lane

That’s an understatement, to be sure. I love the pops of red against the navy blue and white, as well as the no-fuss styling of the bookshelves.


An Inspiration-Filled Office


One Kings Lane

Color, color, color! Did I say I love color? I do. I’m also envious of that wing chair on wheels used as a desk chair. I have a wing chair without wheels in my office, and I often work at it using a laptop desk. I never thought of putting wheels on it and using it AT my real desk. Hmmmm…


Here Comes the Sunroom!


One Kings Lane

What I wouldn’t give for a sunroom with a glass roof! All the blue-and-white chinoiserie makes my heart go pitapat, too.
