Friday Links

February 5th, 2016

It’s Friday and I am a tired cat.  Let’s hope the Broncos can pull out a win on Sunday (although I think it’s a long shot!) How stunning is this bedroom? It’s from the Manhattan apartment of Lori Loughlin (aka Aunt Rebecca from Full House) and her husband Mossimo Giannulli (yes, THAT Mossimo!).  Fashion designers tend to carry that talent into their interiors, and Mossimo is no exception.  Check out this home in LA! Here are some noteworthy links for your Friday:

Did you watch this? My mom viewed the entire trial back in the day

This tile from Ann Sacks is making my life today. Swoon

If you need a yummy gift for your Valentine, I highly recommend these

I keep stalking this necklace

If you live in a humid climate, you NEED this shampoo.  It’s a game changer

Don’t miss the Kardashian home tour

Are you hanging art this weekend? Here’s my favorite short cut

How cute are these for only $10?

Thinking about making this for the Superbowl!

Happy Friday!

Current Home Must-Haves

February 4th, 2016

Today I’m sharing my current home must-haves.  From upholstery to art and accessories, I’m giving you a little view into my favorites (and where to shop!) First up:

UNIQUE MIRRORS

root-mirror

Mirrors are great for making a space look larger and adding a point of interest.  This root mirror from Crate and Barrel has been on my watch list for awhile.  I may need to pull the trigger for the new digs.

TUFTED UPHOLSTERY

elton-settee-o

I have a weak link when it comes to tufting.  I love the chic vibe it gives off (with a little touch of feminine).  This settee from West Elm would be perfect for the end of  a bed.

LAMPS

Lighting (to me) is the biggest accessory to a space.  You can physically set the tone in a room with how much light you add.  It’s the icing on the cake.  This floor lamp from Jonathan Adler is to die for.

THROW

miles-blue-throw

A good throw can add a finishing touch to the arm of a sofa all while addressing function.  We have several throws in our main living area that get quite a bit of use.  They add an additional layer and will keep your guests comfortable in the process.

TEXTURED PILLOWS

Sometimes a rich texture is just as effective as a pop of color.  This Moroccan pillow from Pottery Barn is one of my very favorites.  Not only is it stunning, it’s an unlikely PB item.

PHOTOGRAPHY

This is one area of design that the hubs and I disagree.  He does not see the value in purchasing art.  I, on the other hand, like to think of myself as a collector.  Lately, I’m drawn to lifestyle photography.  Gray Malin and Christopher Wray are some favorites to name a few. Doesn’t that piece make you wish you were in the pool?

WALL DECOR

Wall decor is another way to play with texture in your space.  You do not need to coat every wall with a framed print.  Mix it up with some wall decor.  This Juju hat from Waiting on Martha is one of my favorites and would look great against dark paint.

Happy shopping!

Khloe Kardashian’s Home in AD

February 3rd, 2016

Say what you will of the Kardashians, one thing rings true: their interior design is on point. Khloe recently renovated a home with Martyn Lawrence Bullard and I have been dying to see shots. Needless to say, I was pumped for the Architectural Digest feature released today.  She certainly shares my love for MLB and Ann Sacks.

One thing I fully intend on copying in the new home are those cookie jars.  I love how meticulously stacked they are, not to mention delicious for guests. Stunning.  Make sure you check the full article to see Kourtney’s.  Her homes are always very bold and unique.

New House: The Master

February 1st, 2016

Our new house is underway, and I’m currently stuck on the master bedroom.  Do I keep our black tufted headboard, or put it in the basement master and go for a new look? If you follow me on Instagram, you saw our new nightstands here.  I am SO happy with them. But now I can’t decide… should I freshen things up or just rework our current furnishings?

One of my favorite stops on our NYC girls trip was the BG Restaurant at Bergdorf’s.  Designed by Kelly Wearstler, BG’s chic atmosphere is covered in beautiful detail. I dream of that trim.

Next time you’re in the city, make sure you pay the 7th floor a visit.

West Elm Styling Event

January 28th, 2016

Shop: tabletray, candle, vases, sphere

Do you want to have a designer interior but don’t know quite how to get there? Do you live in Denver? Well, you’re in luck.  I’m hosting a styling event at West Elm in Cherry Creek today from 4-6:30pm discussing how to style your coffee and side tables.  It’s free, so why not come on down? In the meantime, you can shop my GIF!

Yesterday’s research led to the discovery of Julie Hillman, a high end residential designer out of New York.  A graduate of Parsons and recognized fashion designer, Julie made the move to interiors in 2000 at the request of her clients. Her designs are all unique and very striking:

Kelly Wearstler for Ann Sacks

January 20th, 2016

If you’ve been in the design world for five minutes, you are probably a die hard fan of Kelly Wearstler.  Anything she touches turns to gold and her new collection with Ann Sacks is no exception. The Kitchen Bath Industry Show is happening right now in Vegas and I am dying at shots from the AS booth. Look at this install shot of the Maven:

ANN SACKS

How stunning is that tile? I can barely take it.  Here are a few others:

I’m almost speechless.  Like I said yesterday, I’m going to spec this like Oprah: “You get Kelly Wearstler! and YOU get Kelly Wearstler!” Bravo my friend.  It’s stunning.
