Want to recreate it in your home? We’ve found items that can help you achieve this very same look!


The Bernhardt Vintage Patina Bookcase has always been a favorite of ours. The Uttermost Paris Photo Set set the tone of the room as elegant and masculine because of the architecture. Paired with exquisite Bradington Young club chairs and Klaussner coffee table and cooridinating end table. The find of the century? The Tommy Bahama Tasmania End Table has that intricate detail as shown in the inspiration room. Grounding the room is a natural sisal rug from Surya. And topped off with off with a handsome wall sconce. Hope you enjoy!

Create a Functional Room

Create a Functional Room

Before the fun begins of picking colors, fabrics and furniture, the room needs to be functional. So what is the primary function of your living room; Watching TV? Reading? A conversation or game area? Whichever it is, your furniture should be placed accordingly.

Many times, you will see these beautiful rooms with a sofa facing two accent chairs, but the TV is facing an awkward direction for viewing, like the photos below!

So if the main function of your room is watching TV, have your sofa face the TV! Also, sectionals are great because they can create an intimate space while seating several people.

Keep in mind any traffic patterns. If your room is open concept or serves multiple functions, there should be an easy pathway.

If you use your room for reading or a conversational area, you will need to find or make a focal point; like a fireplace, large window, or a furniture showpiece. Then place appropriate lighting at your reading spot and your tables for gaming and snacks!

Making a room look functional AND fabulous is possible! Stick to these tips and you will get to enjoy your room, and not just by looking at it!

Quick Tip! Mixing Masculine & Feminine Styles

Quick Tip! Mixing Masculine & Feminine Styles

Start with a brown leather piece! It is my go-to focal point pick because it has masculine style and easily coordinates with feminine decor. So whether it’s your sofa or headboard, you can work around it. Check out these gorgeous rooms for inspiration!

(url) This is a great example of a masculine room with feminine touches. The straight lines of the sofa and black hardwood floors really give it a manly feel while the accent chairs and shiny tables soften the room.

2014 Winter Las Vegas Market Part 3

The last Vegas report is all about the bedroom!

We saw some incredibily gorgeous master bedrooms from Aspen Home.


And from Ashley

And Skyline

And my personal favorite, since I have 2 little girls, the Lightheaded beds! You can personalize it with your favorite Disney character or scene. Even can have one custom made with their picture on it! Kids can read with the ambient light and it’s even set on a timer, so don’t worry about going in and shutting it off after they fall asleep. Can’t wait to bring you these later this year!

And lastly, but never forgotten, the mattress. Our sister site, US-Mattress.com was invited to preview both the brand new Comforpedic IQ and the Simmons Beautyrest Black launches.

Simmons Introduces the Future of Sleep with Innovative ComforPedic iQ. The iQ mattress adjusts to your sleeping throughout the night, regardless of how you move around and features brand new technology that you can’t find anywhere else. Because of its unique design, ComforPedic iQ is the first and only mattress endorsed by Dr. Andrew Weil, a world-renowned pioneer and leader in the field of integrative medicine.

2014 Winter Las Vegas Market Part 2

2014 Winter Las Vegas Market Part 2

Coastal influences still have major appeal, but with a much more modern color palette of blues, dark teals and corals.

Thom Filicia unveils a new lighting design with Safavieh! Described as earthly modern. Shades will add as much design as the lamp base itself.

Mirrored Furniture is still so hot right now.. We are now even seeing it in a Mylar form (not shown) where the damage risk of it being shipped to your home is so much less!

Chunky wood edges in either a modern or rustic finish showed a dominant presence.

Most unique items I found that has a ton of functionality was with Dovetail. Love the wire baskets, top space and casters.

Hope you have enjoyed part 2… More coming! We always have such a great time at market!
