Creating a Living Space with Chairish

30 Sep

I’m sure some of you have heard of Chairish, if not you will definitely want to check them out! Chairish is a wonderful site that allows people to buy and sell furniture and decor. You will find some amazing vintage pieces that will complete any space. I have created a living space using fun finds from Chairish. I always use color in my designs, so this space started with a fabulous purple chair. You can find other accent chairs that can inspire your own design here. Take a look!

After starting with the purple chair I then found my other large items. I like adding color through accents. Throw pillows, accent chairs, drapery, etc. So that is what I did here. You don’t want to overwhelm a space with too much color so that is why this accent chair is perfect. It was so hard to choose pieces because I found so many great options.

I hope you all visit Chairish and get inspired by the new finds that show up everyday!

I love the wide plank floors that run throughout the house. They add a ton of character. The living room and the library are my favorite spaces. They are warm and seem to be a perfect  place to relax. What do you think?

Leopard is a Neutral

Good morning. Leopard is the perfect neutral print. Whether used on throw pillows or used in a larger area like an area rug leopard print adds a bit of personality to any space. Leopard is a great print to incorporate into your space for fall. Look at how these spaces use the chic print.

Blackberry and Lemon Vodka Tonic

19 Sep

Happy Friday! If you follow me on instagram (you can click to follow me on the right) you may have seen me post a picture of a delicious new cocktail recipe I tried. Vodka tonics are a good go to drink it is a good base for a lot of different flavors. This time I jazzed it up with muddled blackberries and lemon. It was so refreshing and had the perfect balance of tartness. I thought I would share the recipe with you.
