Lightening My Load

I need to stop schlepping around an enormous tote all the time. The bigger the bag, the more things I find to put in it {snacks, sweaters, clutches, notebooks, iPad} and before I know it, I'm lugging around a huge and heavy load. So I'm in the market for a little guy - a small crossbody that will just hold my keys, wallet, phone and lip balm to keep me from throwing my back out! Here are some of my favs:

Hallway Love

I know that I picked the right profession {interior design} when I get really excited about a hallway. The gorgeous wall color, herringbone flooring and art. Love it.

Back to School

Even though it's been years since I've been in school, late August always makes me think about back to school time. Spring is time for spring cleaning - and fall feels like the perfect time to spruce up your wardrobe and your desk...

I love a fresh, clean, collared shirt for fall.

Kitchen Styling

I like to bring a little green into the kitchen with potted herbs - it's a splash of color {in an otherwise neutral room} AND it's functional. Win win.

Pop of Color

I love a pop of color. Sometimes it feels nice and safe to get all your furniture in neutral colors and bring in pops of color through accessories like books and flowers. But sometimes you need to make a bold statement with a pop of color in a bigger piece, like a sofa, chair, wall color or rug. I think it's all about mixing it up - pairing colors and neutrals, patterns and solids, vintage and new. I love the vintage furniture site Chairish, so when they asked me to incorporate one of their bold colored accent chairs into a room, I gladly accepted the challenge with this hot pink Danish teak lounge chair. I'd paint the room light pink to incorporate various shades of pink throughout the room, while bringing in a grey sofa, black wall sconces and wood coffee table to balance out the room and keep the space from looking overly girly.

Here's where you can get the look yourself {a mix of high-end and inexpensive, vintage and modern}
