Christmas Decorating: Neutrals
Growing up, the holidays (especially Christmas) was all about Red and Green. Now that i'm in my mid-twenties, it's fun to mix it up and select color palates that are different and make a statement. This holiday is all about making statements, but using...
Guest Picks: Dream Bedroom
Just imagine an expansive master bedroom with high ceilings and dark hardwood floors. This ideabook has all of the pieces that I would need to create my dream space, from the wave headboard to storage galore! Everything I have ever wanted is in this dream...
Guest Picks: Hosting a Country Barbecue
My office recently had a company barbecue, and seeing as we live and work in Texas, we went all out. It was amazing how much interior design went into the process and how important it was that everything match and work together aesthetically, even though...
Guest Picks: 2013 Fall Decorating
After a very long and hot summer in Houston, I am extremely excited (and ready) to start decorating my home for fall. These pieces are all fabulous and affordable for your indoor and outdoor entertaining areas this fall. From wreaths to bedding, all of...
Guest Picks: Blown Glass
On a recent trip to Martha's Vineyard, I stopped in at Martha's Vineyard Glassworks. There I got to see the actual glass pieces heated and created from beginning to end. Each piece was beautiful and I could just picture them in my home. Do you have any...
Guest Picks: Shower Curtains
I generally change my shower curtains as often as I change my sheets — which is every week, of course! These shower curtain options combine an array of choices from bright and fun to soft and muted, and all can be paired with other bath accessories...
Guest Picks: Vanity Stools
The bathroom in my new master suite is very large. I have a spot for a vanity stool (my first one!), and I really don't know which style I am looking for. These are inspiration, but I think I am leaning towards a stool that I can change upholstery on,...
Guest Picks: Summertime Soiree
I just cannot wait to host my first summertime soiree; however, I really need to get a few staples: drink dispensers, hurricane lamps, ample seating, a hammock to relax in and a couple of pillows. This is my favorite time of year, and even if you're not...
Guest Picks: Kitchen Essentials
I'm moving into a new apartment with a really beautiful kitchen, so I'll be needing all of these kitchen essentials to make my new house a welcoming home that's perfect for entertaining and, of course, cooking! — Melissa from Chic...
Guest Picks: Headboards
I have been looking for a new headboard. My current bed is a double and I'm looking to upgrade, but should I go with a simple design? Or a bold, bright color (I'd have to stick with simple, sophisticated bedding)? Or do I go with a headboard that incorporates...
Guest Picks: Decorating With Navy and Turquoise
I recently bought a turquoise dress and paired it with navy shoes, and it got me thinking that navy and turquoise paired together in a room is one of my favorite color combinations — and just in time for spring! The turquoise chandelier, navy velvet...
Guest Picks: Decorative Bookends
The best thing about bookends is that you don't have to use them solely on your bookcase. I really love the idea of using them as the centerpiece of a table with simple books covered in either white paper or a fun patterned paper that accentuates the...
Guest Picks: Simply Pillowcases
Need to add a little something to your bed without overdoing it? A brightly colored pillowcase or a delicate detailed flange can help transform your bedding. — Cassandra from Chic Coles
