Timeless Classics from Williams Sonoma Home.

When working with our clients, we have a key “library” of online retailers we like to source from.  Some are very affordable, others a little more expensive, but all offering a wide variety of styles we mix and match to create custom looks for each space we work on.  One of our most consistent sources is Williams-Sonoma Home.  Higher-end than company siblings Pottery Barn and West Elm, this resource is wonderful for all traditional-meets-modern pieces that will last the test of time (both in style and quality).  Their styled spaces online are fantastic for inspiration too. So I was psyched when they asked to partner with me to show off my most favorite selections-from cashmere throws to canopy beds!  Plus right now they are offering 20% off bedding and bath and a clearance sale with up to 75% off.

My Favorite DIY Hack.

When I was finishing up my former master bedroom I really wanted to share how great this little project came out but couldn’t because I had to wait for the book. But now I can! I am no DIY master- that’s just not my thing and it’s important that as a designer, blogger and person I honor my strengths and know my weaknesses (like any projects involving a power drill, sanding or sewing, thirty seven steps or incredible amounts of patience). However, sometimes a budget restriction requires you to get a little bit crafty no matter how DIY-challenged you are. I was DYING to get a fabulous dresser by Redford House for this room.  But my renovation and decorating budget was completely busted and so I had to improvise. Enter IKEA, some nice hardware, Andrew and his powder drill!

The result is here- lovely, functional and totally doable!

Tilton Fenwick for Target

I truly adore Suysel and Anne from Tilton Fenwick, and I was so excited for them to see that they now have a line of upholstered goods at Target using exclusive colorways of their fun, bright fabric line for Duralee!

I’ve featured them and their colorful design work, a fabulous twist on traditional decor styles.  They love using bold prints in so many of their designs, and typically getting this look, even with their well-priced fabric, can be a pricey venture.  Until now!
