Local Love: Priley Lane

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

I love sourcing goods from local companies, and recently we discovered a new Boston based furniture Priley Lane that we have fallen in LOVE with.  These transitional pieces are all customizable- you choose the finish (a variety of lacquers, grasscloth, linens, skins or wood stains) and even different metal feet, nailheads and other details! It’s so fun!

Love this coffee table done in lacquered grasscloth in a natural color…

These amazing modern dressers remind me of some MUCH more expensive ones I’ve seen. I may have to use these in my new master bedroom!

Runway to Room: Valentino

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

I love translating fashion from the runway into interior decor- it really stretches my design muscles and allows me to think outside the box. When I saw this Valentino look I was SO drawn to the unexpected color combo! This look isn’t exactly one I’d rock to go to a meeting, but I adore the unique mix of light blue, merlot and leopard with gold and black accents. I wanted to try to replicate this interesting combination in a living room….

THE OUTFIT:

THE ROOM:

I typically don’t use the color cranberry/merlot in homes, it always feels so dated to me, but in this application of a velvet sofa against a grey blue wall anchored by a leopard wool carpet I think it works!  It’s a rich, luxe space that has a few statements and combines modern and traditional items. I never would have thought to try to put these colors together in a space, proving that looking to the runway can help your creativity when decorating!

What I’m Loving: New Stuff From Ballard Designs

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

I get so stupidly excited when new stuff comes out from vendors I use a lot for design projects. As of late, I have been giddy over all the new stuff coming out from Ballard Designs, a company I use a lot for budget friendly jobs.  Take a peek at some of my favorite new things- so good, right?

This table skirt blew my mind. Know why?

Because it looks just like this one I’ve coveted forever from designer Tom Scheerer! Having this made would cost at least three times as much as they are charging.

More favorites- this tufted ottoman with tape trim (many options for the trim!) and this studded long x-bench for the end of the bed!
