Favorite Friday! I was inspired by yet another beautiful photo of a room and had to create my own version with products from FurnitureCrate! Check out this cozy nook and how you can get your look right here!
I chose the Carrara Chair and Ottoman from Lexington for the clean lines and rich color. Like the photo, I stayed with a light wood console table, this one by Safavieh. The accents, Table Lamp by Currey & Company, Throw by Surya, and Pillow by Niche by Eastern Accents, have the light teal/blue color that I love!
Hanging artwork is one of my favorite parts of design. First, because it means you’re about to see the finished project. Second, artwork can completely make a room!
Artwork is up to personal interpretation; what is beautiful to you may not have an effect on someone else. And sometimes, people don’t have an opinion at all. But it’s important to find something you like, don’t give up!
Here are a few beautiful rooms that prove artwork can be essential to the design of your room.
I stumbled upon this amazing suburban home design by Kristina Wolf Design, based in California. The entire home has a natural flow throughout the space. What we love is how it mixes the popular industrial design with modern features in a typical suburban home. Some of the furniture pieces are also familiar to what we have on our own site as we note below..
The kitchen has an open feel, with a casual round dining set and is open to the family room.
The formal dining room shares the same style and color palette as the rest of the home.
One of our favorite rooms is the master bedroom. That bed looks very familiar, it is the Modloft Ludlow Bed in White Leather and Wenge Finish that we also carry on our site. Just love how she designed the room with a contemporary bed, yet feels very comfortable and warm.
And last but not least, the master bath is just as stunning as the rest of the home.
I think that this home will definitely share as inspiration when I decorate my own home…
It’s always a good time had by all at the Last Vegas Market, but this time I wanted to let you know a little more about it. Sure, the best part is seeing all the new items, design ideas and trends, and don’t worry, we’ll get to that… But networking and communicating with our industry partners is a big part of it. Not only does it allow us as buyers to network with hundreds of potential new manufacturers, but we get to meet and discuss our current state of business with existing suppliers. We are fortunate enough to have a strong sales representation in our home state of Michigan and having the opportunity to meet with many of them in such a short span of time, is rewarding and beneficial in itself!
Ok, now onto some of our favorite new items we saw at market!
A new collection by Aspen Home, which is sure to be a big hit when it becomes available. Industrial has grown significantly this past years, and it is becoming much more elegant in it’s design.
Grandfather clocks have come a long way.. check out these new contemporary versions from Howard Miller!
Gray is still the new beige, Lots of gorgeous grey toned sofa collections
Accessories are really getting fun!
with a fun take on mid-century modern too..
Last, but not least… You could definitely still see the ‘Restoration Hardware’ trend still strong,
and the cleverly named ‘Bad Boy’ chair..
Hope you enjoyed the trip!
Whether you are afraid of committing to a bold paint color or you are locked into white walls in a rental, there are several ways to design around it.
First, pick large and colorful furniture for against the wall. It will help draw your eye away from the white.
In your bedroom, why not use the use a colorful or unique headboard to draw attention! Also, bold colored curtains help too!
You can also use lots of artwork or mirrors throughout your home!
If you’re in the market for a new bed, Canopy Beds are another easy solution for the bedroom!

You know, I receive a lot of trade and design emails, trade magazines, publications, and advertisements, and sometimes they all blend together. However, today, I was pleasantly surprised. The email was entitled, ‘Scantily Clad Sculpture’. I admit, it peaked my interested. And it was true, it was pottery done to perfection with a woman’s body. Jonathan Adler created some very unique, yet poetically done pieces to accent your home. It is not abstract, however in a clean white design, it can grace your home beautifully, without being too daring. Hope you enjoy!
