My style can be characterized as fun, colorful, and whimsical, and holiday decorating is no exception. That said, I love the idea of doing an all-natural color palette using nature as the décor provider. There’s something so lovely about the beauty of the earth, no? Here are some natural décor ideas to inspire your holiday decorating.
Confession: purple is my least favorite color. I don’t know why, but the color strikes me wrong. That said, I’ve been spotting a number of gorgeous purple interiors lately that have started to change my mind. Here are some of my favorite ways to tastefully incorporate purple into your space.
The winter seasons make me want to curl up in some comfy clothes and read in a cozy cabin in the middle of the woods. Creating that perfect winter retreat can be done in just a few simple steps. Here’s how to achieve it!
Ever since moving into my first apartment on my own, I’ve dreamed of having a clawfoot tub as the centerpiece of my bathroom. They always have such a presence about them, an I-dare-you-not-to-notice-me attitude almost. Which means there’s really only one thing that could give such a thing even more charisma – COLOR!
We’ve seen wallpaper come back better than ever these last few years. From florals to geometrics, it’s all looking very chic and stylish. I recently visited a client’s home that had 1940’s floral paper in the bathroom. It was busy and the colors were a little intrusive. Fast forward years later and we see florals that are soothing and modern. Now that we have outstanding wallpaper options and we’ve used them on our walls, it’s time to think outside of the box.
Above we see a creative usage of wallpaper. It creates a landscape that looks real enough to jump into and it makes a landscape that surrounds the bed like a picture perfect scene.
One of my favorite design elements is lighting. It can do so much for your space as far as how it lights a room and affects your mood and daily tasks. Lighting can also add visual interest by accessorizing it the right way. Floor lamps are a great form of lighting that stand independently and don’t need to be hard wired into the room. For this reason they are great for rentals. If you don’t have the ability to change it out, then add it in! Here are some of my favorite floor lamps and how they can fit into your space.
We all have odds and ends around the house that need storing, so why not do it stylishly? There are so many beautiful baskets, bins, and boxes out there to choose from, and below are some of the best options.
I hosted a large dinner party last year and ran out of matching chairs, so I added some other random chairs from around the house. Low and behold I loved the look and kept the mix-matched chairs around my dining table. Dining rooms can come across stuffy and too put together. This look creates a fun, out of the box dining space.
If you want this look but still need a uniform feel, choose chairs that are of the same era or trend. If you have a thing for mid-century, choose only chairs from that era. If you love a more vintage or rustic look, choose worn woods and metals. Even in the collaboration there will be cohesiveness.
This time of the year allows for many get-togethers with those we love. It’s the perfect opportunity to set a beautiful table; one that inspires the simplicity of the seasons. Think gorgeous natural elements like those from the harvest: fruits, vegetables, and pumpkins. There’s so much to work with! Here are some of my favorite tablescapes and how you can get the look for your next gathering.
I’ve never met a female that doesn’t love a good pair of shoes. In fact, I bet you that shoes are the number one prized possession in a closet. I know for me that I am willing to spend a good amount of money on a beautiful pair of shoes. So why hide something that you are proud of and invested good money into? The good news is that you don’t have to. There are several ways to showcase those beauties.
