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.

On the Hunt: Vintage Floor Lamps

Chairish: Vintage Lamps | Sacramento Street

While I have placed a floor lamp in my nursery, the rest of my house only has table lamps. I’m ready to find the perfect floor lamp for my living room. I’m having trouble deciding between a more traditional swing-arm lamp in brass or a mid-century modern floor lamp.  I have always favored a mix of modern and vintage and I have to say, I’ve been tempted by the chrome arc lamp as well as the actual vintage mid-century lamps.

5.) Tall Brass Articulating Floor Lamp


In San Francisco, when vintage lamps show up in stores, they are swooped up quickly. A place I have found a plethora of floor lamps that I love are on the website Chairish. They have both traditional and mid-century choices.  The only trouble I’ll have, is deciding which lamp to chose.  Which do you prefer?

Greycork: Convenience Meets Good Design

| Sacramento Street

 

In my design business, I have always believed that less is more. I would rather have fewer pieces of quality than a house filled with throwaway furniture. Along with this, I find that buying from smaller companies that care about all of the details of their products can make the experience of buying items an enjoyable one. When I heard about Greycork, I knew their business model fit into my belief about design.

I have their desk and use it as my office desk. Each of these pieces arrive to your door in only five days. The top of the desk is a stunning solid wood that feels like satin. The metal legs of the table fold into the top for easy storage and it is easy to move from room to room.

On the Hunt: Dining Room Chairs

A great way to avoid having a home that looks cookie-cutter is to make sure there is a mix of both old and new. What better way to do this than mixing modern and vintage chairs at your dining room table.

4.) Knoll Tulip Chairs


5.) Stratham Mid-Century Modern Loveseat


6.) Nicos Zographos Chairs


At my table I have four modern chairs with sheepskins on the seat to add a bit of comfort. In between these chairs, I’ve added two vintage bentwood chairs from Spain.

 

Another trick is to have a loveseat on one side of the table. Not only is this a comfortable option, but it helps to make your dining room warm and inviting.

 

Finally, why not have an upholstered chair at each end of the table? I guarantee it will draw you in and you’ll linger with a good book and a cup of tea. These easy ideas can be the difference in a dining room never being used or a place you enjoy and choose to use.

 

One of my go-to places for unique items is Chairish. This is a site you want to use often, as the merchandise is always changing. You can find a unique set of chairs to mix with those you already have. And before you know it, you’ll want to hang in the often-overlooked dining room.

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.
