Stripes for Spring

Stripes are a classic pattern that can easily transition from Spiring to Summer. Pair stripes with solids to keep things simple, or mix with another pattern such as a floral or plaid for a bolder look. Add one or all of these items to your Spring wardrobe and re-wear them for months to come!

Casual Living Space

Recently I began working on the design of a living and dining space for a family friend. I really feel that the best way to help someone imagine the future look of a room is to create an inspiration board. Seeing all of the selected furniture for a space in a single image makes a finished product much easier to imagine. My vision for this project is to create a comfortable and inviting space that is full of intimate seating areas.

Decorating with Succulents

Don't have a green thumb? Luckily that doesn't mean that your home has to be free of plants and flowers. Succulents are a collection of plants that are very low maintenance, yet extremely beautiful. They contain a range of natural colors such as orange, green, and eggplant. Usually sold in decorative planters, succulents are the perfect addition to any home's decor. If you're low on surface space, they can also be displayed in hanging terrariums or vertical planters. A lively plant or bunch of flowers is always the perfect addition to any space. Here are a few options that are home-ready.

Hot Pink Home Decor

This season, hot pink seems to be everywhere from pants to lamp shades. The thought of incorporating this color into your home's decor can be a little overwhelming, but small doses of hot pink can really brighten up a space. If you're feeling bold, go for a more permanent piece such as an area rug or piece of furniture. For a more subtle accent, bring in table lamps, throw pillows, or flowers in a pink hue.
