Guest Picks: British Colonial Inspired
20 photos
I’m often drawn to so many different styles that it can be hard to identify my own. I think that is one of the biggest challenges when decorating a room or home — it’s easy to have a lot of favorites, but they don’t necessarily all go together!...
Guest Picks: Blue Meets Green
20 photos
It’s interesting to see how personal style changes over time, even in small ways like the colors we’re drawn to. I preferred all things pink while growing up, but as an adult I am much more in favor of blues and greens, which probably has a lot to...
Guest Picks: Make That Winter Entryway Work Better
20 photos
It takes only a few weeks of winter before my entryway starts looking pretty chaotic: coats, outerwear, slushy boots and shoes, and seemingly endless other little things. I’ve decided that this winter is the time to change that and really put the space...
Guest Picks: Hooked on Art
20 photos
Wall hooks are lifesavers in small spaces. I use them daily in the closet and entryway, and I’m sure that many of you have seen countless ideas on how to use them to maximize storage. What you may not have seen, though, is the treasure trove of unique...
Guest Picks: Dress Up Your Winter Mantel
20 photos
There’s nothing quite like a cozy fireplace topped by a beautifully decorated mantel in the wintertime. I love how a mantel can evolve throughout the year to reflect the mood or the season. And even when it’s not the focal point of a room, it can...
Guest Picks: Nestling Into November
20 photos
When it comes to arranging and decorating my home, I am so deeply influenced by the seasons. In the warmer months I like to de-clutter, simplify and surround myself with color; but once it gets colder, I am all about anything that creates a warm and homey...
Guest Picks: Round Out Your Room
20 photos
I started noticing the way things are lined up in my living room a few months ago. Straight lines everywhere! A boxy sectional facing a rectangular television and console, plus a square coffee table and a rectangular rug. Before finding the square midcentury-style...
Guest Picks: Simple and Subtle Fall Decor
20 photos
With all of the seasonal decor for fall (and, yikes, the holidays!) slowly making its debut again, I've been thinking about subtle pieces to decorate with. You know, those tried-and-true pieces that perfectly set the mood without looking like you've stepped...
Guest Picks: Cozy yet Stylish Reading Nook
20 photos
I enjoy reading, but my husband is an avid reader who goes from one book to the next. We're slowly pulling together two reading zones in our house to make the whole experience more comfortable (and to encourage myself to sit and read more often). So far,...
Guest Picks: A Cozy Lake House
20 photos
Living in Michigan (the Great Lakes State!), it's not hard to know at least one person with a lakeside cottage or property, especially in northern Michigan where there are so many great little towns and beaches. Packing for my husband and my annual trip...
Guest Picks: Summertime Art
20 photos
Artwork is one of the things I love most in a home, but I rarely take the time to curate and display my own collection. Collecting favorite pieces, finding the right frames, deciding where to display every piece — it can easily be put off, but I hope...
Guest Picks: Nature-Inspired Sunroom
20 photos
If I could have a dream feature in a house, it'd be a sunroom full of windows. I just love a room filled with natural light for reading or enjoying a meal, and I can think of endless ways to decorate it too. One vision is full of nature-inspired, earthy...
Guest Picks: Baskets and Bins
20 photos
It's no secret that I love baskets and bins, and just about anything else that keeps things organized in some kind of cute way. I usually like to grab them on sale or from overstock stores like Marshalls and Home Goods, but their inventory is not always...
Guest Picks: Small Spaces
20 photos
After visiting Hawaii recently, I found myself dreaming about living there. Most of the homes were tiny, so I've been imagining how I'd decorate a smaller place, whether a little house on an island or a tiny apartment in a big city, and make it feel like...
Guest Picks: Desks for Many Uses
20 photos
I've always loved furniture with multiple uses, and desks are good examples. They don't always have to look like they belong confined to an office! Here are a few different secretary/desk ideas that can be worked into all different types of spaces —...
