Halloween Porch Decor

Halloween Porch Decor
This Halloween instead of going with kitschy decor, check out these more elegant pieces and that are chic and yet still have that oh-so-creepy factor. I especially love the detailing on these battery powered lanterns from Target and the handcrafted witch figurine on a bench from Grandin Road (a great conversation starter when guests come over).

Tommy Hilfiger’s Miami Home

Located in Miami, Florida fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger and his wife Dee, collaborate with British interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard, to create a family home that is filled with 1960s-70s pop art and a groovy design scheme. The result is a space that is brimming with personality and one that captures the cool vibe of one of the hottest cities on the East Coast.

An Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiet painting sets the tone for the living room colour scheme lending a vibrant and energising feel.

In the entryway, a Mark Sijan sculpture of a security guard lends a quirky feel to the space. While in the kitchen, striped flooring creates a dramatic touch with Lucite bar stools giving a floating and open feel. Wool upholstery and a brass chandelier add a glam feel.

In the dining room, red dining chairs and a chevron rug in a cream and black colourway brings a retro vibe to the space. The monochromatic scheme of the breakfast area showcases Hollywood glamour with an over scaled Elizabeth Taylor print drawing presence to the space. Lucite chairs upholstered in wool and striped flooring echo the scheme of the kitchen for a unified feel.

For the office, a blue, red and white colour scheme captures his brand’s image. Faux suede panels are paired with a work by Jean Dubuffet for a unique and captivating look. A white desk and rug anchors the overall design scheme. While accent pieces in red and blue further balances the look.

In the master bedroom, mirrored surfaces and a neutral colour scheme lends a serene yet luxurious feel. A four poster bed anchors the design scheme while a luscious wool throw and rug just oozes cosiness.

For his bathroom, a monochromatic scheme lends contrast and visual impact. While mixed prints lend interest. Chrome fixtures bring refined elegance to this masculine space.

A Touch Of Fall

A Touch Of Fall
Bring a touch of fall to your home this season with hues of orange, browns and reds. In the space above, pops of orange enliven the mostly neutral colour palette. Woven elements and naturally rustic decor like acorns and driftwood give a cosy feel. Last but not least, don’t forget to layer up your sofa with throw pillows and a woolen blanket to further enhance the ambiance.
