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.

Land Of Contrasts

Set is Vesterbro, Sweden the home of Gitte and Torben Hjorth is a place where opposites coincide. Throughout the home, you’ll find a range of furniture from various eras set next to each other to create unique spaces. These arrangements are further played up by a palette of black, brown, grey and white with hints of red and pink shades. Gitte believes in not going for safe choices and this can be seen it the delicate way in which she has woven different styles together. The result is a home that is delightfully interesting.


Artwork is peppered throughout the home adding a dash of personality and colour to the space.


In the living room, an Ikea sofa sits next to a Rococo chair and a vintage teak table. A graphic rug adds contrast while black accents like the cabinet and chalkboard ground the scheme.


In the dining room, black and white dominates the space with a photograph further enhancing the scheme. Hints of wood add warmth and interest to the space.


In the kitchen, metal adds an industrial touch while pops of chartreuse enliven the palette.



Gitte loves to upcyle/recyle furniture. Here, she has created her own bureau with an old table, cabinet and a stack of bricks.


In the bedroom, a wall of mirrors creates a stunning focal point and brings more light into the space. A set of 3 dressers creates a large sideboard which provides adequate storage while on the bed handmade pillows add a lovely casual yet personal touch.

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).
