Inspiration: Neutrals Because I had a color fetish this week, (ask my online clients) I thought that I would bring some neutrals into the picture. There is nothing more calming than creams, wheat and caramel tones. I could seriously relax in any of these spaces.
Pillow Play: 5 Home Trends to Try Right Now We’re big believers in personal style. Right now, we’re loving a mash-up of patterns. Whether it’s coming down the runway or peppered throughout your house, the bold prints you pick have a lot to say about your style. A fun, easy way to experiment with trends (that you may be too hesitant to wear out the door) is to take risks with home decor. Pick up pillows that will add an unexpected punch to an otherwise neutral room.
Finding Holiday Refuge: Perfectly Peaceful Bathrooms I really do enjoy getting to see most of my relatives over the holidays, especially my three sister, as we’re spread over the east coast. However, ever since I was a child, a room or house full of people can start to leave me feeling a bit suffocated after awhile. Whether or not you’re like me in this characteristic, it’s still important to take a little time for yourself to recharge. My personal favorite is a hot bath with some candles, because it’s so comforting and peaceful.
5th Street Brooklyn This 4 story townhouse in center Park Slope was renovated by “the Brooklyn Home Company”. Extra large double hung windows were placed to flood the home with natural light. The house has some great features, a library ladder leads to an extra lofted guest room, ceiling wooden beams, large built-in shelves, and a guest room inspired by the sleeping quarters of a ship.
San Francisco Spotlight: HD Buttercup Some people search their entire lives for mecca. I found it a block and a half from my house and I highly recommend you make the pilgrimage – if you’re looking for the design mecca that is. H.D. Buttercup is the ultimate playground for the decor lover. It’s like the store that never ends.
