Living With Great Style

Interiors: My Dream Chair

| Sacramento Street

 

When we moved into our new apartment a year and a half ago I had a vision and wish list for the pieces I wanted. There is nothing I love more than mixing old and new together. With that being said, incorporating a touch of modern with antiques in each room is important to me.

 

The quest began for a chair for a corner in our dining room. It’s been sitting empty, waiting to be filled with the perfect lounge chair.

I’ve always had a love affair with white Barcelona chairs. I’ve dreamt of having one in my own home for years. When I began my search for one I found that my dream chair was a little to pricey for my budget. That’s when I was introduced to Rove Concepts who offers mid-century modern replica designs that are more affordable. Friends, it’s one of my new go-to sources for client projects. When my Barcelona chair (in Siena White) arrived I was in awe of its beautiful soft leather.

Let’s just say, what used to be an unused spot in our home is now my favorite spot to sit back to enjoy a warm cup of tea, a stack of magazines or catching up on my favorite sites. I have to say, although this chair is modern – it will forever be timeless in my eyes. I know that I’ll be able to move it from room to room if I ever get the itch to redecorate. And we all know that happens quite often!

Winter Home Essentials for the New Year

Winter Home Essentials

 

Images 1/2/3/4/5

 

The New Year brings on a frenzy to do, including a massive clean out of closets with several trips to goodwill. I’ve been doing that the past week, but now I have an itch to do a bit of redecorating around the house to start off 2015. First order of business was to pull inspiration – I’m drawn to the all white, cozy rugs and endless unique pillows from all of these images. From there I put together a list of several things I’m on the hunt for – a few rugs, throw pillows, a wing-back chair and more.

 Winter Home Essentials

 

1.) African Mud Cloth Pillow | 2.) Luxurious Reindeer Fur Throw

3.) Vintage Beni Ourain Moroccan Carpet | 4.) Wool Felt & Canvas Pillow

5.) Town & Country Wool Blanket| 6.) Mongolian Lamb Grey Pillow Case

7.) Vintage Persian Meshed Carpet


One of my first stops is always Chairish – you never know what unique items you can find on their site. One client bought a pair of chairs from Chairish for $200 (they were meant to be completely redone) and reupholstered them in a stunning fabric. The chairs are now the highlight of their family room. I’m mostly looking for items to make my home feel a little more cozy these winter months. I pulled together a few of my favorites (above) that I’d love to add to my house.

I sometimes find myself working on a client project and when it comes time to source side tales, it can be challenging. Finding the perfect side table is like picking out the perfect handbag for an outfit. There are so many factors to consider – do you do vintage? new? modern? traditional? Of course, it all depends on the style of the home, but since I’m constantly on the hunt I thought I’d share one of my top resources with you.

3.) Brown & Saltman Nightstand | 4.) Vintage Industrial Side Table |

5.) Poul Kjaerholm Cube Table


Recently while I’ve been hunting for side tables for clients, I’ve found the majority of them on Chairish. I pulled together a few of my favorites to share with all of you. You could put each one of these in any room in your home.

Adding Brass Details into Your Home

Brass Inspiration | Sacramento Street

For a long time I couldn’t embrace the brass trend – I’m a silver and chrome kind of girl. But since the trend looks like it will be here to stay, I’ve be embracing it more and more in my projects and my own home. But the trick, as with any trend, is to strike a balance. Small touches of brass will make a room feel current, not straight out of the ’80s. Whether it’s a beautiful set of candlesticks in your entry or dining room, or adding a larger touch with some hardware – I’m loving it even more.


If you still aren’t certain about this trend – add a small dose of it before changing everything. Once you live with it for a few weeks then decide if you want to invest in larger pieces. Also, consider mixing metals, which is something I have done in my own home. It has lasting power because you’re not putting your investment all in one color.

1.) Nicket Sunburst Mirror (Marked Down!) | 2.) Silverplate Champagne Bucket | 3.) Vintage Ceremonial Brass Pots | 4.) Pace Brass and Glass Side Table| 5.) Gabrielle Side Table in Bone | 6.) Antique Brass Handled Tray | 7.) Vintage Brass Elephants 


To help you bring in brass to your own home I’ve pulled together some of my favorite vintage finds from Chairish. You can easily add in one or a few of these items into your home to achieve this look.


Do you think you’ll be adding in a bit of brass to your home? Have you already fully embraced this trend that is here to stay?

Grey Interiors for Fall

Chairish | Sacramento Street


It might not be a surprise to many of you but I’m coveting grey interiors for fall. It sets the perfect mood as we head into fall. It’s truly an amazing color that never seems to go out of style and complements every color. I’ve been seeing endless inspiration everywhere and it’s been reflecting itself in my design projects. Taking a turn to a more grey palette is fine by me – there are so many shades and patterns in grey that can be layered on top of each other to create stunning rooms.


That’s why I’ve put together a few of my favorite vintage items in all shades of grey. The perfect pieces that you can layer into your home or layer together to create a stunning space. Everything from the base items you need for a room, to the walls, to the details in accessories. I have you covered.

 


1.) Contemporary Master Harvey Sofa | 2.) Oakland Concrete Cube Table | 3.) Polished Petrified Wood Table | 4.) Ellan Maynard Original Painting: Morning Sea | 5.) White Wooden Mirror | 6.) Large European Style Waterbuck Antler Trophy | 7.) Peaceful Buddha Statue in Antique Gold | 8.) Gold Embossed High Ball Cocktail Glasses | 9.) Decorative Grey Metallic Pillow
