I think this is a concept we can all stand behind: Velvet instantly enhances a room.
In starting to do some manic internet browsing to find the perfect seating combo for our “lounge area” (aka family room), I realized something. Almost every single item I had saved to the wishlist was velvet. It might be one of my all-time favorite fabrics (something to do with growing up in leotards? IDK).
I want to take my sweet ass time designing the *perfect* lounge area – it’s currently a blank canvas since we haven’t done anything …
If you’re home, take a look around the room you’re in. What do you like about it? What don’t you like about it? Have you ever looked at your space and thought something was off, but you couldn’t figure out what was off about it?
For a few weeks, I’ve been eyeing up my living room thinking “something’s not right.” I couldn’t figure out what it was, but I just knew it wasn’t the look I wanted. In fact, nothing really looked like it belonged. But what could I do to change that?

“What do you mean?”
“Do you think I need to layer this cowhide rug with the ivory rug we have downstairs?”
“Have I told you about Feng Shui?”
I’ve recently been drawn to dark walls which is concerning because I just spent an entire summer at Sherwin Williams choosing the perfect “light grays.”

After our wedding, we spent a few days at a cozy little lodge in the Catskills, Scribners, and since then I have not gotten the idea of black walls out of my head. According to Sherwin Williams, black walls are considered “threatening or dramatic” yet, associated with sophistication. So, if I want to paint my …
I loveeee mixing glam details with rustic accents (think – reclaimed wood table with shiny candelabras) and lately, I’ve been all about silver.
As I’m typing this sentence I’m fully mentally aware that this silver thing will soon fade and I’ll become obsessed with gold. But today, it’s all about silver.
I’m not crazyy about mixing gold and silver (I have a feeling that will change too) but since I like both, I thought it would be good …
