Hola! Hope you enjoyed this past weekend. I can’t believe it is already June, and although Summer hasn’t officially started, it sure feels like it around here!
A couple of weekends ago I made a trip to Target to grab a couple of random items and got sucked into their home section. (You know, the usual.)
I would say especially over the last couple years, Target has really upped their game when it comes to housewares and home decor items. They have some really great designer looks but without the high price tag. Here are my faves:
Pink has always been a chic, feminine color. But using pink in your home doesn’t have to say, “hey look at me, I’m a girls bedroom!” If it feels too girly for your taste, jazz it up with mossy green to create a fun, welcoming space!
These colors tend to create a more traditional feel, but depending on the patterns and textures used, the look lean towards bohemian, modern, or tropical.
Here’s a nice variation with coral & some gold!
Here’s a few of my favorite picks for this color combo:

If you are a residential designer, Highpoint Market is like Mecca – you absolutely have to make the trip! If you can’t attend the next best thing is to follow along virtually. The hashtag #HPMKT on Instagram has nearly 60K posts of new products and inspiration. Based on personal preference and post popularity, here are my picks on this Spring’s market winners.
HOT NEW WALLPAPER
Detroit Wallpaper stole the show with their brightly colored geometric patterns. I obviously have immense love for the Mitten State and am happy to see the success of yet another amazing Detroit business!
BRASS & SASS
It’s no surprise that gold tones were a huge hit.
Mirth Studio continues to wow with their amazing tile patterns.
IN THE HOT SEAT

Lovely rooms that have it all together.
Did you make it to Highpoint? What was your favorite showroom or piece?

I love the color of camel specifically because it can instantly dress up any space. It feels, warm, rich, and sophisticated. While Navy’s personality gives off different vibes – nautical, bold, traditional – these two totally compliment each other. If you’re going for a look that is classic and stylish, but not overly feminine, these 2 are for you.
Try throwing some fun pattern in the mix, such as leopard.
Pair with textures like acrylic or metallic for a more modern feel.
Use these 2 as a color pop in with light walls to enhance a neutral space.
Or go with a deep blue paint color to make the space feel warm and masculine.
These colors have a way of feeling “dressed up” but they can also be more casual too!
Here’s some ideas to bring the palette into your home just in time for the fall season:
You can’t go wrong with a simple, streamlined leather sofa
Don’t be so square! Do 3 navy lumbar pillows for a nice twist
Loving this retro mod fabric by Robert Allen
Mix up the patterns a bit with this Duralee fabric
Accent chairs in deep blue velvet add drama and contrast
Add luxury and texture with a cowhide rug
He may be little, but this brass side table will sure make a statement
Swooning over this leather wrap watch
Large scale photography prints are flexible and come at a lower price tag as original art
These leather chairs are great for the dining area, or can also act as an accent piece
You know what shape I’m loving right now? (I’ll give you one guess, and it may or may not be in the title of this post.)
The lovely scallop shape is derived from my favorite childhood shell with the same name. Its curved edges takes me back to when I was a 7-year-old seeing the ocean for the first time, and the hunt for the perfect one. The form is soothing and organic, but creates incredible interest when turned into a pattern. It can be retro. It can be modern. Originating from nature, the scallop shape is timeless.
Can I have these tables? Pretty PRETTY please??!
