So Hot Right Now: 2017 Interior Design Trends Report

So Hot Right Now: 2017 Interior Design Trends Report

I spent last Thursday perusing all the pretty things on display at London Design Week. I’ve been asked a few times recently – particularly by friends and family who want help decorating their own spaces – what’s trending in interiors. Now, I’m not saying you have to follow even a single one of these to have an awesome home. Because, you know, you do you. Except I personally love almost all of the interiors trends in this round-up. And whether you want to follow them or not, they’re fun to… View Post

Favorite Things: A New Orleans Family Vacation Rental, A Tiny Home & Ugly Shoes

Travel: A New Orleans Family Vacation Home Our New Orleans family vacation was one of my favourite family holidays ever. We traveled there from Chicago on Amtrak – so fun! The only part of the trip that I might have done differently was our accommodation. We stayed in a hotel in the financial district, which was fine, but didn’t give us a very authentic New Orleans experience. This shotgun rental home, in the city’s Lower Garden District, would definitely have solved that issue. Isn’t it gorgeous? This New Orleans family vacation… View Post

Mood Board: Industrial Inspiration for an NYC Apartment Design

I would very happily live in the imaginary home featured in today’s design plan. It’s a mood board for an NYC apartment design that I put together as part of an application to design school (!!!)

Favorite Things: A Shibori Headboard, A Green Bomber Jacket & A Boho Rental in LA

Finds I am head over heels for this shibori headboard from Urban Outfitters. It’s on sale – reduced from £400 to £276. My next room re-do will be Eleanor’s – we’ve split the kids up and they each have their own bedroom now. If this guy came in a single width, I’d snap it up in an instant for her room. Instead, it might have to be inspiration for a DIY version, if I can think of a way to mimick the look. I also noticed that West Elm have their cute wood and glass… View Post

Favorite Things: Hand-Painted Walls, Hi-Tops & Tiny Homes

DIY I love the hand-painted walls Kristen did in her hallway, and the rest of the space is gorgeous too. If you haven’t already, go check it out on The Hunted Interior. STYLE I’ve been eyeing these Paul Green high tops for months… they’re not cheap, but they sure are cute. And I took advantage of the Black Friday sales at Clarks and bought myself these boots. They’re crazy comfortable. FINDS I’m pretty much in love with all of French Connection’s rugs. I only wish they came in bigger sizes too.… View Post
