Good Style Blog Overhaul

For a while now I have been pondering a bit of an overhaul for Good Style. The layout and logo are new, and a new posting schedule is in order as well. From now on, there will be daily (Monday through Friday) postings on the Good Style blog that feature home decor and style items that are either on sale, on trend, or just plain cool. Now instead of a single post per week, Good Style will become a constant source for home and style inspiration. Check back tomorrow for the first of the daily posts, and be sure to continuing checking in everyday!

Xo,

Home Decor Trend: Fur

Maybe it's just the increasingly cold weather that is starting to influence my decorating style, or maybe it's just the fact that (faux) fur home decor is fun! This trend is very easy to incorporate into any home, simply through a blanket or throw pillow on a sofa, chair, or as extra bedding accents. These throws and pillows are great winter gift ideas also! If you're loving this trend as much as I am and want a more permanent look, try incorporating fur through a more substantial piece like a side chair, bean bag (great for a family den or kids space), or ottoman.

Bedroom Design Reveal

After a lot of deliberation, placing orders, and finally receiving deliveries, our bedroom is pretty much complete (minus a few accents here and there). We went for an overall grey look with touches of purple, gold, black and white. The headboard is perfect for leaning against when reading or watching TV, and the oversized nightstands provide more storage then the average nightstand (which comes in handy in a teeny, tiny apartment). But my favorite part is the touch of gold that the table lamps and knobs provide! I've been very into the gold trend recently, and this was the perfect way to incorporate it into our space.

Like the look? Get the items here:

Headboard: West Elm Tall Grid Tufted Headboard (in Brushed Heathered Cotton, Gray Haze)
Nightstands: Safavieh American Home Cain End Table in Gray Overcast
Nightstand Knobs: Anthropologie Swirled Geode Knob in Pink
Table Lamps: Pacific Coast Lighting Geometric Tower 34" H Table Lamp with Drum Shade
Bedding: Target (discontinued, but get a similar look here)
Throw: Urban Outfitters Atlas Tapestry in black
Bedskirt: Greenland Home Fashions Diamond Cotton Quilted Bed Skirt
Clothing Rack: IKEA RIGGA Clothes Rack in White

Target: Faribault Woolen Mill

I may be a little late to the party, but I am very excited about the Target collection with Faribault Woolen Mill that is launching this Sunday, November 2nd. Faribault is an old-school wool company based in Minnesota and creates the most amazing wool products such as scarves, throws, and other various accessories. Their line through Target will still maintain their high quality, but at a fraction of the cost. I am most excited about the scarves and throws, and may even pick up a tote bag. With winter quickly approaching, it's the perfect time for a great wool scarf, or two, or three. Get on over to Target on Sunday to shop the collection!

Color Trend: Cobalt Blue

Cobalt blue is one of my favorite recent color trends. It can be applied to almost any space, in a large (paint all the walls) or small (add a throw pillow or two) amount. It's a classic color that sometimes borders on navy, and is appropriate for every style from traditional to contemporary and everything in between. Colors such as coral, pink, and gold are perfect compliments to create a complete scheme that includes cobalt. Finish it off with pops of bright white molding, accessories and accent pieces of furniture.
