It's summer time. Everyone wants to get away for a vacation or a fun trip of some sort. Luckily, I was able to go on a trip this summer (next week- yaaay!) but I don't always get to every summer. Sometimes it's money, sometimes it's work getting in the way, but some years I just can't make it. If you can't get away this year, then why not bring the hotel luxury into your own home? Everyone deserves their own slice of paradise! 1 | Invest in quality bedding. This includes sheets, pillows, and a down comforter. 2 | Add in the little details: towels, bathrobes, candles, and a good book! 3 | Take some quality you time. Unplug from the rest of the world, and treat yourself to a relaxing escape. Invest In Quality Bedding Whenever…

Make it Happen: Wallpaper

When Britney Spears shaved her head, everyone was all who the hell does that "that was an interesting decision." Wallpaper can have the same effect. If used in the wrong space it can look out of place and visually chaotic. However, wallpaper used in the right way can have a pleasant, eye catching effect on the design of the space. Pattern and color have a lot to do with how intense the wallpaper appears in the room. A neutral, subtle pattern will have a soft, placid effect. Bold pattern and color will make a dramatic statement in the room. And without further delay, let the wallpaper porn commence! Subtle Wallpaper Wallpaper can be  a nerve wracking design element to choose for your space. If you're unsure about completely diving into the world of wallpaper then…

Design Breakdown No. 4

I'm a huge fan of bright color, so naturally this living room is right up my alleyway. I feel like the color palette for the space was derived from the large painting residing over the sofa. It has a great combination of teals, pale pinks, and peaches to work from. Accents of lime green and gold are additionally worked into the room, adding to the soft but bright feel. Create a Jumping Off Point By using a piece of art or fabric as the room's jumping off point, it can really give a lot of style and color palette direction. The large art piece over the sofa has softer colors with bold teal. The pillows and other art pieces pick up those same colors from the painting but in a bolder pop of color.…

How to Style a Bar Cart

  | Coasters | Decanters | Bar Utensils and Ice Bucket | Cocktail Glasses | Matches | Horn Bottle Opener | Bar Cart | I've come across so many gorgeous bar carts lately, which of course inspired me to write a post dedicated to them. As with anything, there are many different design approaches one can take when styling a bar cart.  The sleek chrome lines of the bar cart above inspired me to take a modern approach to styling. This design could easily be made less feminine by opting out of the flowers and adding a neat decorative accessory in its place. For more bar cart styling inspiration be sure and head over to my Bar Cart Pinterest board and follow along.   The beauty of bar carts is the wide selection of carts that there are to choose from. Some are bohemian and casual, while others are sleek…
