color story: moss + pink

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.

color story: gray + cream + linen

It’s a cold and dreary February morning here in Texas.  I don’t want to get out of bed.  36 degrees may seem warm to half of the US right now, but my skin has definitely thinned out in my years removed from the Mitten State.  Although I can’t seem to count the good things about this time of year on 2 hands, one thing that can be beautiful is the peaceful solitude and lack of color. Grays + creams seem to go hand-in-hand with winter.  They are soft and subtle.  Deep and calming.  They make you just want to curl up in a corner with a blanket. Herz Allerliebst bedding

I think that is why this color combo is so popular in bedrooms.

A kitchen composed of all neutrals is my absolute fave.  I love how light and open it feels. Tobi Fairley Pleasant Valley Kitchen

Gray and cream can be quite stunning. And stylish. gray coat + cream sweater

I love the soft gray tones, but also the charcoals, too. They add just the right amount of drama and contrast to the space

This look is pretty hard to mess up.  Just pair varying neutral shades and textures together, in a mix of warm and cool, and you’ll have that polished, relaxed look:

6 table lamps i’m loving right now

I’ve been looking at lighting for a client this morning and thought I’d share some of my favorite finds:

6 table lamps I'm loving right now

1> drooling over that clean crisp white marble base

2> cream ceramic paired with a linen shade.  A steal at less than $50!

3>  this would make an awesome desk lamp

4> my favorite color dipped in gold.

5> obsessed with this pendant so of course a lamp in the same style would be delightful.

6> earthy wood with your choice of a gray, white, or cork shade. Thank you Target!

gift guide: the glam girl

We all have that friend who seems to sparkle from head to toe.  She loves all shiny things – diamonds, sequins, glitter, and gold.  Her makeup is always on point.  She’s so stylish and put together – you just wish you had access to that closet for a night or two.  Like Beyonce, you’re pretty sure she just woke up like that.

Here are some great gift ideas for that glamorous girlie girl:

design obsession: feathers

I didn’t realize just how much I love feathers… until the other day.  I was on a run on Saturday morning and I saw one resting on the concrete.  Simple and gray, it may have been run over countless times, but it was still as perfect as ever.

I love the spiritual, natural, carefree vibe they give off.
