ONE ROOM INSPIRATION :: DARK + PREPPY

gingham study_1

Ok, I know. Dark and preppy aren’t normally words you put together. But maybe that’s why I’ve always been so into this gingham-covered room for so long now… It’s a little bit traditional, a little bit badass. I mean, it takes guts to cover an entire room with gingham, after all. And I love the […]

    I love dark & preppy – it’s kind of more like country club or a hunt room. I always remember a quote I read in a magazine that said ‘one thing overdone is kind of like not overdoing it’. I always tell myself that! :)

HOW TO :: STYLE YOUR COFFEE TABLE

how to style your coffee table 6

Now that I’m back from vacation, my big summer project of finishing up my loft continues! I’ve been slowly adding pieces, the latest of which is the perfect coffee table and a few new accessories from HD Buttercup. All of which is a great excuse to give you a peek at how things are progressing, and do a […]

    Great tips! And I especially like the use of the tray, I think that’s exactly what my living room coffee table is missing – thanks for helping me figure that out!

    I love the storage your coffee table offers! I wish I could style my coffee table more often, but my cat is always knocking everything off of it.

    Cassandra, the loft is looking SO good! I am head over heels for your dining room chairs. Green happens to be my youngest son’s favorite color too. We are redoing his room right now and I’ve been looking for green accessories with a masculine touch. Not easy to find. Perhaps I’ll send you a pic once we’re done. And…I have an old sofa that still works but isn’t “me” anymore. I’ve been debating on taking off the back cushions and replacing with comfy pillows instead. You’ve given me the inspiration to move forward! It just may be the facelift it needs.

    Just discovered your blog and I am obsessed! Your sofa is so lovely. Can you share information about the pillows and throw?

    A lovely coffee table set-up. Im English, therefore drink a lot of tea and therefore love the whole coffee/side table thing to allow me to indulge in tea drinking whilst in the lounge!! But, I find they can become so cluttered and messy after a while. I love how you’ve incorporated the items on the table into the design of the whole room. Whilst still having books/mags you’ve also added some lovely features, e.g. I love the tray. It all looks really neat but very stylish too. Thanks for fab ideas on how to incorporate a necessary/useful item as a design feature.

    In love with the chairs around the dining table. Any chance you can point me in the direction of where to find them?
    Thanks!

    Oooh, can you tell us more about the pillows and how you styled the sofa? I love those blue dotted pillows. Will this trick to replace the back pillows work on all types of sofas?

GET THE LOOK :: THE CANOPY BED

Obviously I’m obsessed with touches of blue lately, but no other form has caught my eye quite so much as the bold, blue canopy bed. So, today, I thought we’d do a double get-the-look between two rooms featuring very different takes on their style… Surrounded by neutrals, the blue in this space completely pops against […]

    My, oh my, the 1st bedroom is totally amazing. I love all of the textures and color!
    Plus I am so thrilled with the canopy in blue/teal!

ARTISANAL IS THE NEW BLACK

In the beginning of 2013, I was asked many times what I thought would be the ‘trend’ in furnishings and decor for the year. Amongst a few other responses, my number one word was ‘artisanal’. All of us are wanting pieces that feel special. Small batch, hand crafted, and local being many of the concepts […]

ROUNDUP :: OUTDOOR DINING CHAIRS

I’ve been getting pretty excited these days about sunny days and outdoor entertaining. Since I don’t have a backyard of my own, I’m usually the one commandeering other’s porches, patios and decks during the summer to host BBQ’s and late evening dinners,  but this year I’m hoping we’ll get to host a few soirees in the new […]
