Spring Brunch

Spring Brunch
Be inspired by Camille Styles and create the perfect spring brunch table setting for Mother’s Day by pairing blousy florals with dinner and serveware in candy pastels such as blush and cream. Offset these feminine pieces with accents made of natural fibers like linen napkins and rattan placemats which add texture and interest. For drinkware, opt for clear glass which will lend a light airy feel while brass or gold flatware will add an elegant but old worldly touch.


From furniture to accents and soft furnishings, bring a splash of colour to your space this spring 2015.

A Southern Thanksgiving

A Southern Thanksgiving
Be inspired by Waiting On Martha‘s tablescape by going for a Southern feel this Thanksgiving. To get the look opt for an Autumn inspired floral centerpiece in hues of orange, amber and red. Pair this with a turkey sculpture and pine cone candlesticks for a rustic country look. For the dinnerware, go for Pottery Barn’s pheasant plates, pair them with Pom pom placemats which picks up on the color of the table cloth (in this case sage green) and also offers a fun element. To keep the theme going opt for Aviary napkins with a feather inspired napkin ring. Harvest inspired accents and serveware in accompanying autumnal hues further enhance this tablescape scheme while burnished  gold flateware adds a touch of rustic glamour.

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.
