Winter Solstice + Perfect Lighting

With Winter Solstice upon us our days may be getting shorter but that doesn’t mean that time spent enjoying the company of one another must be cut short also. Finding the right lighting for your interior can bring the perfect warmth that we all crave during these cold and dreary months. Lighting up the home during the spring and summer is simple with natural light, but in the winter we need a little extra help. With the right lighting, every room can become your favorite!

Here are some fabulous lighting fixtures that I’ve used in some of my favorite projects recently! Hope you enjoy and are inspired!

Cozy Underfoot

Nothing feels nicer during the winter months than a nice warm rug beneath your toes. Rugs are some of my favorite pieces as they really work to bring a room together and create an unforgettable coziness for the home.  A hot peppermint latte, a warm fire, and the perfect chunky rug make for a phenomenal winter escape.  Here are some fantastic rugs that I’ve used in some of my recent projects. I think you’ll see why I have a soft spot in my heart for these cozy accents!

Minneapolis Install

I’m so in love with this Minneapolis project that I finalized in September.  The neutral palate just sings to me and I’m excited to share it with you.

A NeUtral PaLeTTe….

When deciding what paint to go with, having a neutral palette allows the walls to act as a blank canvas. This also allows for other objects to “pop” out.

Here are some of my favorite paints to use from Benjamin Moore:

CREATING A ‘SALLE DE BAINE’ THAT STANDS OUT…

I’ve been designing a lot of bathrooms lately and thought I would share with you some of my favorite ideas that I believe will make your bathroom special

I love neutral colors and texture. SURPRISE!

.    textured baskets for towels and toilet paper

.    garden stools or wood blocks for holding your shampoos and soaps

.    special artwork is not for the living room only

.   mix finishes, gold, silver and black all work together. remember that mixing creates a collected and eclectic look

.   try an unusual sink from stone or concrete

.   a ladder serves as a towel rack

.   how about rope to hold your toilet paper?

.   add accessories in your bath the same as you would in your living rooms

.   a dramatic mirror that stands out creates interest.

SUMMER ATTIRE + YOUR INTERIORS

Summer is not officially here but once memorial day passes I’m ready to dress the part. As with my interiors, same guidelines apply.

Texture and pattern, classic stripes and the details of the RIGHT accessories! All neutral of course!

My Take on Floral

I’m always one to love a mix.  I am always true to my neutral-love, but mixing in a classic floral can really complete a room.

Downton Abbey as Inspiration

Can’t get enough of the Crawley family of Downton Abbey?  You can incorporate some of their romantic classic style and be your own masterpiece!Print

Seize the Polar Vortex

These winter months can seem to drag on and on, especially if you are a sun-lover like me.  Why not take advantage of this polar vortex and bring out your inner snow bunny.  Your interieur can be equally as sexy with a few right touches.  As I’ve said before, it is all in the details.  And in this case it is all about the layers.  Stay warm!
