Nothing gives a room more personality than a Jonathan Adler needlepoint pillow! Really, every home should have one! My pick? The new “Paris” pillow is just perfect. Red lips and all make it a chic choice for Valentine’s Day. Oh La La!
I love to see how the pros do it! Restaurants are the pioneers in getting form and function right. This beyond fabulous restaurant in San Francisco, Saison, is fantastic. What do I love? The richness of all the elements. Big sun-drenched windows fill smokey gray walls. The kitchen and chefs are on full display. The natural wood tables and modern chairs are so cozy. More than anything, I love how the glassware is etched and pretty not plain. This glassware is so seductive and lovely. A perfect contradiction to the industrial vibe.
I always keep a big file on my favorite design palette, black and white. Here are some of my newest inspirations.
And here is a fabulous rug from Ikea, just to get you started. A black and white rug like this adds instant style to a room.
Anyone who has strolled through Home Depot might notice the Martha Stewart products everywhere. I have been recommending her cabinet line to many who are looking for a quality cabinet option at a price. As the saying goes, the proof is in the pudding. Martha has unveiled her products in one of her own kitchens just to show us all how great it is. I am a believer. You? Check out the complete unveiling at themarthablog.com
We might not be to Valentine’s Day yet, but this sparkle beauty might just be the touch of pink you would like. Priced at $79, this just might be the fun item to take you into Spring! A perfect way to add some pink into your day! This Geo Drusy by Lief ring just might be a great surprise for your daughter or yourself!
Do you like the look of rustic and reclaimed wood but live in a newer home? This scrap wood wallpaper made in Holland gives the look of vintage boards without the cost of putting them up. I love using this in a boys room or even an apartment rental where you are limited by what work you can actually do. This wallpaper gives faux bois all new meaning!
Great use of space is always key for me in a room design. I love how this glass window wall made the room functional and modern. Dividing the space without the use of a real wall, gives the room zones while keeping it light. I love the furniture choices and the chaise actually looks like something you would want to cuddle up and read a book in!
For many years, the bell jar was the typical entry lighting. Now, the lantern is lighting our homes and welcoming friends and family in. Whatever your design style is, there is a lantern for you. Here are my favorites.
The Darlana Lantern from Circa Lighting is a great choice for such a prime location!
