Awesome Summer Giveaway with Dear Keaton!

When it comes to brands that become EOS sponsors I am picky. I always want to make sure that the brands I align myself with represent not only my aesthetic taste but also offer products I actually love and would happily use in my own home or for clients.  Dear Keaton has been with us since their inception and today they are celebrating their fist anniversary of being in business!  I am delighted to celebrate with them, as I know as a female small business owner how hard it is and how much work it takes to keep things moving forward!  So I rounded up some of my favorite items from their site, in both neutrals and blues ( my favorite colors) and check the bottom of the post for an AWESOME giveaway sure to make your summer a little better (and boozier)! :)

Their theme of “resort living everyday” works especially well as we move into the summer months!

Anatomy of a Well Styled Bookshelf

We’re moving into our new office today (!!!!!!!) so this is going to be short and sweet. Someone suggesting tips on styling bookshelves and so I thought I’d break down a few images of ones we’ve done for you with the hopes that it helps you with your own bookshelf styling!   The issue we run into with a lot of bookshelf styling jobs is not enough books. The key is to have as many books as possible- hopefully all ones that interest you, but no shame in buying books for their pretty spines (ahem!)  Too many decorative objects and not enough books is not my favorite look.

Also, when arranging- start with a blank slate. Take everything off the shelves first and start arranging shelf by shelf.  Trying to just move stuff around never works out well in my experience.

Roundup: Our Most Used Styling Accessories

One of the things that I find a lot of clients struggle with in decorating their home is that last 10%– the accessories and accents that take a room from good to great. As we continue styling and shooting our projects for book number 2 (it IS coming! Promise!) I thought I would round up the accessories the girls and I here int he office turn to time and time again for putting the finishing touches on a home. From always having birch logs on hand (for an empty fireplace or peeking out of a basket) to the frames and objects we use when styling a bookshelf or built in. Even my favorite books (yup, mine is up there- that striped spine was very much on purpose for this reason!) I hope you find these sections helpful when needing to source some final goodies for your own space! (sorry this post is so late- this too many hours more than I thought it would!)
