Coffee Table Books…

I love collecting different art and design books for our coffee table. I am constantly switching them out. Here are a few favorites…

LANVIN:  My very good friend Ally gave me this book as a birthday gift.  It always reminds me of her.  The fashion in this book is beautiful.

FORNASETTI:  Love all things Fornasetti, the book is always a conversation starter.

THE SARTORIALIST:  Was excited when one of my favorite blogs came out with a coffee table book.  Plus, my very good friend, Kate is on page 21 wearing an amazing vintage dress we picked out together in Austin!

HOME FIELD:  I needed to be fair to my husband and let him have a book that did not have to do with  fashion or home design on our coffee table.  The Austin based photographer traveled  to different high school football fields and took really interesting photos at daybreak.  A great compromise.

VOUGE LIVING:  Always love looking through this book for inspiration.  There are some amazing homes featured.

CREATIVE WALLS: This book shows the unique ways people display their collectables.  Very fun to look at.

CHICAGO SPACES:   I got this book as a gift from my parents, a great way to pay tribute to my home town.

See the very cool coffee table featured above here.

Pillows + Art + Blogshop

This past weekend I attended Blogshop.  I was able to learn more about photoshop and improve my skills from two very talented girls, Bri from Design Love Fest  and Angela from Angela and Ithyle.  I highly recommend the class.  They did such a great job and it was such a great experience.  One of my favorite new skills is graphic animation which is shown above using a few Stone Textile pillows.

This amazing sofa is from  Jayson Home in Chicago.

I also took Emily’s advice and went on the 20×200 site she recommended here.  I love this art by Todd McLellan.

Holiday Table Series No.3: Fancy Dinner

 Entertaining is always fun, especially during the holiday season.  Here are a few ideas for your holiday table decor

using Stone Textile products and some other favorites.

Holiday Dinner/Fancy

Colors: Antique golds, blacks, whites

Candles: Fill the table with little mercury glass votives, they really creates a romantic and festive vibe.

Table Settings:  Do not be afraid to use your good china, it really makes the table.  If you do not have your own set you can find amazing vintage sets at estate sales and flea markets…

My favorite one, in Austin, is called the  City-Wide Garage Sale. I found these plates there.

Wallpaper/Accent Walls…

I am kind of obsessed with wallpaper right now.  There are so many patterns and textures available that you cannot go wrong.  If doing a whole room is intimidating try doing an accent wall.  The images below are some of my favorites. From top:

 Entryway: we just added this deco print paper to the entryway to our apartment, it really changes the look and adds a great pop when you walk in.

Bathroom:  I used this woods wall paper for a client’s bathroom.  I really love how it turned out.

Hallway:  I love how great the wallpaper pattern looks with the floor tile pattern.

Living Room:  This book print is amazing.

Showroom:  Last but not least, how amazing is the tufted wallpaper pattern used in my friend Dana’s new jewelry showroom?  Such an elegant and timeless choice for an elegant and timeless design company!  I cannot wait to see it in person.  Check out the Dana Rebecca Designs website here.

Guest Post on Apartment 34!

I was so honored when Erin, from Apartment 34 , asked me to be a guest blogger.  I really love her blog! She wanted me to talk about what products I would want in my  ”dream home” See post below:

As a product designer and interior stylist I approach every project with the same philosophy, it is all about the accessories.  I love the challenge of blending various textiles to find the perfect balance of texture, color, and mood.

I had a lot of fun combining some of my products with the products on my ever growing wish list. Take a look at my “dream living room” and my “dream dining room” below…

 

Here’s what inspired me for my “Dream Living Room”
