In Massachusetts (or anywhere, really), it’s hard to come by a person who isn’t charmed by Martha’s Vineyard. Owning a house there—even a tiny little one—would be a dream!
With Big Apple’s Annual Rug Market going on right now, the one thing that is stuck on my mind is Moroccan Berber Rugs, or, as most commonly known, “Moroccan Shag Rugs”.
When Bri Emery, from Design Love Fest, needed help decorating the living room of her new duplex, she quickly turned to friend and interior designer, Emily Henderson, whom she knew could deliver exactly what she was looking for. Together, they were able to create a space that was perfectly eclectic and polished, filled with color, light and different textures.
A rainstorm did not stop Joy Cho, from Oh Joy, from throwing a garden party to celebrate the launch of her Oh Joy for Target collection a few weeks ago. Leave it up to Joy to bring the casual, fun and sunny feeling of an outdoor garden party indoors, while still having fun and not letting the rainfall ruin her day.
I have been secretly flirting with Whitney Port’s four-story, Venice loft ever since Domaine Home first published it in January.
Living in an apartment in the city certainly has its advantages, but one of the things I find myself longing for as of late is an outdoor space…a yard, my very own patch of grassy area and some trees. (With so many new developments in my neighborhood, the very few trees we used to have left are now nearly gone.)
Besides being a very comforting and soothing color, helping you relax, when used on your walls navy blue can also add an elegant, dramatic yet welcoming feel to your house. And even though it is a dark color, it somehow manages to still bring life to a room.
Either used to make a statement, on an accent wall or simply all over, this deep blue color looks stunning when contrasted against bright and daring neons such as yellow, orange and green, or more familiar and less adventurous colors such as white, turquoise and other neutral and earthy tones.
With its wide mouth, bulging and spherical body, Chinese ginger jars have become an easy and beautiful way to add color and accessorize our home. Sadly, I only have one in my house, but I certainly hope to get my hands on a few more this year as I think they look great when grouped.
Nowadays, we see ginger jars used as fashionable decorative pieces, converted into lamps and/or flower pots- however, back then, the jar’s purpose was to store and transport ginger, one of the most valuable spices of the time.
This Thanksgiving was a very special one for my husband and I. Not only did we have a number of things to be thankful for, we got to celebrate it in the company of those closest and most intimate to us whom have been by our side through our ups and downs, helping us, supporting us, and challenging us along the way. Making sure we knew we were never alone in the moments we needed them most.
It was a small gathering, just how we like it. And it was a lot of fun.
