Her spaces are so beautiful! Her bold use of wallpaper in the bathrooms are genius! My favorite space would have to be the mid-century modern living room with the beautiful gold table and Beni Ourain rug. I mean I did a whole post on rugs like that so of course I love it right? Natalie’s sophisticated use of color and layers are really great. Which is your favorite space? To see more of Natalie’s work visit her website.

Home Tour: Molly Sims’ LA Home

17 Sep

Good morning! Today I have a beautiful home to share with you. Actress/ model Molly Sims’ LA home is warm and oozes a chic California low-key feel. Molly and her husband have collected a lot of items throughout the years and wanted those pieces to be incorporated into their home. The home is mainly neutral with pops of colors in the accents. I think you will all love this modern and relaxed home. Take a look!

Trunk Love

28 May

Good morning! I hope you all had a great 3 day weekend! Have any of you seen spaces that use vintage trunks for tables or accents? I happen to love the vintage and antique feel trunks add to spaces. Trunks not only add character to a space, but can also provide useful storage. Here are some of my favorite examples!

Here are some bar essentials for your home bar (minus the booze)

1. No bar is complete with out fabulous glassware. I love the elegant banding on these glasses.

2. Always have a great cocktail shaker on hand. This one is sleek and modern.

3. Using a decorative tray helps to keep things organized and adds a pop of color.

4. It is always handy to have bottle stoppers. These are so fab!

5. These cocktail napkins also add a pop of color to any bar. And they come in handy too!

6. A few decanters are a must for any bar. I love the different shapes and styles. (Left & Right)

I hope these tips help you to create a festive holiday bar space!
