Most of the big stuff is in place in our living room (mostly carried over from our last home) but I’m still deciding on the details – that is, what new accessories I want to bring in and how I want to style them. So I’ve been collecting inspiration and in the process have found these beautiful spaces:
Love the color palette…and how insane is that headboard?
Cozy – blue and white
Mini fig leaf!
Diggin’ the pop of blue pattern
Deborah Needleman’s living room has always been one of my favorites
love that blue ikat chair

Today I’m over on La Dolce Vita with a post on decorating with the colors sea mist and greige. Read the full post here.
As mentioned in a previous post, earlier this month, Style Me Pretty Living, one of my favorite lifestyle sites, featured a tour of my previous home. Since the feature went up, I’ve received inquires about the sources of some things, so I thought I’d post a complete list here for anyone else who may also be curious to know. Because the apartment was a rental that we planned to live in for only about 2 years or so and we had other priorities financially, when it came to decorating and furnishing it, we did so on a small budget, splurging only on a few select pieces. BTW, this post from 2012 shows a few photos of what the place looked like when we first moved in!

Q: The base of my Docksta table gets dirty easily from people resting their feet on it, how do you keep yours clean?
A: Magic Erasers!
Q: How did you hide the wires and cords of your wall mounted TV in your living room?
A: We used these cable management covers we found on Amazon. I’ve also seen similar ones at home improvement stores.

I love seeing our pillows in their new homes. Julia of Gal Meets Glam decorated her living room with our Leopard Velvet and Channels Ebony & Ivory pillows. Love that she started with an inspiration board and made it come to life!

One of the many things I enjoy about my job, is discovering talented new-to-me interior designers. I thought it’d be fun to spotlight them here on the blog as I’m sure many of you will also enjoy seeing their beautiful work and gain inspiration from it.
This week’s spotlight is on Jennifer Wundrow and Heather Brock, founders of their own firm –Nest Design Co. based in Sausalito, California. A selection of lovely spaces they’ve designed:

While reading the Domaine feature on Cynthia Collins, I learned that aside from being an interior designer, she is also co-owner of Blue Print – a store in Uptown Dallas. I clicked on over to the store website and immediately fell in love. They sell handpicked antiques, original artwork, accessories, and high-end furniture, all inside a really charming and architecturally beautiful old home:
They do such a beautiful job with styling:

So delighted that our Raja Embroidery pillow was featured in Domaine Home as part of the ‘Get the Look’ portion of their post on interior designer Cynthia Collins’ home tour. Cynthia’s home is absolutely beautiful and her design aesthetic definitely resonates with me. Each space is bright and airy, yet cozy, with just the right dose of color.
