The Finishing Touch: Throw Pillows

As a designer, I find that sometimes the most difficult part of the design process is figuring out the finishing touches. One item that can make a room complete are throw pillows that add dimension and a unique touch. I like to find pillows that can add an element of texture, pattern, and color that would otherwise not be present in the room.

1.) Chenille Floral Designer Pillows


2.) White Moroccan Floor Pillow


3.) Custom Duralee Ikat Pillows (on sale!)


4.) Royal Blue Hand Loomed Silk Velvet Pillow


5.) Handmade Suzani Pillow


Pillows that I love can be difficult to find. I don’t want them to look generic and I am definitely particular about the quality of the fabric they are made from. One terrific source is Chairish, where there is a multitude of choices of quality pillows. I like to have a mix – some of silk velvet and others linen or cotton. Be sure that all the pillows you chose will go together nicely as a group. While it can be a challenge, in the end, the throw pillows you chose can improve the look of a room tremendously.

The Perfect Changing Table

Changing Table

One of the decisions I made was to not buy a changing table for the nursery. Instead, I found a chest-of-drawers I adored and retrofit it into a changing table. Believe me, if I can do it (the queen of DIY disasters!) anyone can.

I’m drawn to champagne-style chest-of-drawers. They remind me of the inside of a steamer trunk and anything related to travel is attractive to me. I found just what I was looking for at Land of Nod. Three ample drawers give me the room for everything I need when changing Jackson. And it was so easy to attach the changing table top. We attached it to the back of the chest so when Jackson is no longer in need of a changing table, we can remove the top and have it simply as a chest-of-drawers.

You don’t have to give up good style when you put together a nursery.

Bring the Picnic Indoors

Bring the Picnic Indoors | Sacramento Street


Everyone is dreaming of spring, blossoming trees, warm sunshine and temperatures above freezing. With Arctic temperatures hitting most of the country, no one wants to go outside. It’s time to get creative with what you can do indoors. I’ve been day dreaming about gathering friends for an outdoor picnic for months but that’s not really possible for awhile so I decided to bring my picnic indoors. Why should I wait until the weather gets warmer?

My first order of business was to create a cozy spot where everyone would want to sit, eat, drink and enjoy themselves for hours on end. The key ingredient – comfy pillows and blankets to cover the floor. When creating an indoor picnic you want to be sure everyone will want to kick off their shoes, curl up and enjoy each other’s company. Be sure to have yummy treats and wine of course. I referenced our guide to creating the perfect cheese board that our team put together this past fall.

On The Hunt: Candleholders

On the Hunt: Candleholders | World Market

Images : 1/2/3/4


In my eyes, you can never have too many candleholders. I use them for just about event dinner party and around our house. They cast a beautiful light that makes dinner parties feel magical and a cozy evening indoors special. There is probably a candle being burned at all hours in our house.


On The Hunt : Candles

1.) Recycled Glass Pillar Candle Holder


2.) Grey Opaque Glass Honeycomb Lantern


3.) Clear Glass Teardrop Lantern Candleholder


As we see a glimmer of hope that spring might be around the corner I’ve pulled together a handful of my must haves for this season that can be used both inside and outside – weather permitting of course! Buy a handful as an excuse to throw a big dinner party with friends. Afterwards you can style them around the house for a new look on your mantle or coffee table.


Check out my favorites over on World Markets blog that will have you inspired to throw a dinner party this weekend!

On The Hunt: Throw Blankets

I know that I’m not alone when I tell all of you that I have an obsession with throw blankets. It’s a problem. I seem to find one where ever I go – whether it’s from traveling, or my go-to shop – I’ll find an excuse for needing it. I tell myself “this would be the perfect addition to that stack on my bookshelf” or “the corner chair needs a new throw to give it an update” or “this would be the perfect picnic blanket.” While I do this with other things as well, throw blankets are a weakness for me  can you blame me?

2.) Blue Surf and White Chevron Throw

3.) Brown Faux Fur Throw


Since I’ve been on the hunt for a couple throws for a few friends and clients who have been asking, I came across an handful from World Market that I truly love. This grey number is now my car blanket.
