How To Easily Add Glamour To Your Home (Hint..Just Add Black)

Hi everyone!

I wanted to do a little styling session in my own home to show you how a black lamp shade can do wonders, but I didn't have time, so alas, I put together this design board to show you how by simply switching out... or getting a new.. black lamp shade can add glamour to your home or just a new modern look, depending on the lamp's base. (Don't you just love that run-on sentence?!)

Check out these gorgeous lamps ....now imagine if they had white shades..... Can you see how much more glam they are with the black??

What do you think?

Making an Entrance: Different Styles Using a Round Table

Hellooo!

I don't know about you, but I'm in full decorating mode over here--not just with my clients as always, but with my home. 

By tonight I have to decide on what color to do my steps! Black and white? Black? Just white? 

In any case, I'm also contemplating switching up the look of my foyer.. It's not large, but not small either and I have a little nook by my stairs that's really narrow, so I'm trying to decide if I should just make a statement and put a white lacquer ROUND table by this nook.. I'll be moving it around tonight and then will show you on another post as I figure things out... which leads to today's post... The round table..

I love a round table in an entrance. There's something very inviting about it. Check out these entrances.. all beautiful in their own way.

Which is your fav?

The Exquisite Work of Jan Showers

I love a handful of interior designers, and all have one thing in common--the gift of glamour. 

Jan Showers is one of these designers (among my other favorites--Kelly Wearstler, Jonathan Adler, and Windsor Smith). 
She creates sophisticated, glamorous, yet livable spaces. Her designs seem effortless yet so many details are considered.

When I see these beautiful rooms by Showers, it makes me want to up my own glamour factor in my home. 

I hope you are inspired as much as I am by this talented designer.

A Preppy & Pretty Room: Navy & Pink Design Board


Hi!
Today I had preppy and pink on the brain as my daughter has asked me to re-do her room since it's been since she was little. (although her room is sophisticated in colors, she needs an update, I agree). 

So here is a design board I put together for anyone who loves pretty, fresh, and chic (and a dash of prep)

What do you think?

Fashion Meets Home: A Glam Look

Hi Everyone!

I hope your week is going well!  For today's post, I found this cool runway image and thought it would be fun to put a space together using fashion as my inspiration.  

You can add boldness to your decor in a variety of ways--most of which can come from a pop of color, like these bright pillows, as well as the painting.  I also love the idea of color on the floor, with the lavender floor pouf.

What do you think?
