Take at pointer from Kelly Wearstler (seen in the pic in her child’s room). If you don’t have much floor space to have bookshelves then use the length of a wall and with floating shelves or even a little ledge, you can still store books. Just display the covers. It’s an ingenious idea that allows for a pretty colorful wall focal point, especially for a kid’s room. And ahhhhh the adorable MOROCCAN POUFS are so whimsical and fun.
One “indulgence from afar” that I don’t currently own is lucite furniture. It has both a retro & modern feel to it. By being translucent, its ideal for decorating in smaller places like apartments where you want to keep the illusion as having as much space as possible. It gives you the same functionality as regular furniture but without feeling cluttered. In addition, acrylic furniture goes well with virtually any style.

Huge fan of placing object on trays. It just makes everything look that much more stylish. Of course, my favorite pattern (zebra) is another reason why I like the above pic. One thing you notice about the “table” is that it’s cushioned allowing for additional seating when hosting shindigs. I love how versatile ottomans are for this very reason.
I’m in love. I am fond of this style desk as I’ve mentioned HERE and to find out it’s also made in an acrylic form just gave me all sorts of happiness. Hey Santa, you forgot a gift!
Who watches HGTV’s Color Splash with David Bromstad? *raises hand* I love the show and his out the box way of approaching design. With the show now in Miami, we really get a glimpse of how it is to take a risk and bring color in a space. Here are some designs worth indulging in not only for the holidays but everyday interiors as well…
How awesome is this whimsical space above? Kid would love this, adults would love this.
Typically when we hear the word “repurposing” we immediately think about revamped furniture, pieces that were brought back to life via paint, upholstery, new hardware, etc. However repurposing can have a literal meaning as well. Ever come across an item that’s intended for one thing but you may find a new PURPOSE for it?
Today at the hair salon this morning, my conversation w/my beautician drifted to design stuff. I’ve always noticed this cabinet but never inquired about it. So after finding out she bought it as is (I just KNEW she painted it & added new glitzy doorknobs ), she explained it was meant for a bathroom! She purchased it from Marshalls when in search for something that would house her hair magazines & various hair products. When she didn’t find what she wanted in the home decor area, she stumbled upon this in the bathroom section. Go figure!! Here are a few other examples of things that can double as something else!
Often thought of as a way of dressing up the dining rooms & foyers only, nowadays designers & home owners are adding these light fixtures to jazz up other spaces from vanity areas, over the tub in bathroom suites, bedrooms and even master closets. What girly girl wouldn’t want this?
