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.

Lighting Roundup

Lighting is one of the most important parts of decorating- both for the way your space is illuminated (functionally and mood-wise) and because fixtures can make such a big statement in a space.  There are cool new items coming out all the time so I thought I;d round up some of my favorite new fixtures found at some of my go-to online shopping sites for such things: Circa Lighting, Shades of Light, West Elm, Laura U, Rejuvenation and even Etsy!

Gilt-y Finds From Kids Sources!

I was flipping through some magazine this week when I spotted this perfect gold canopy bed… and lo and behold it was from Pottery Barn Teen! I got to poking around and found a bunch of great gilt pieces I never thought in a MILLION years I could find here.

The aforementioned canopy bed- it doesn’t come in king, but if you need a queen (or two twins) this is fantastic.

A killer gold leg trestle desk. So awesome.

There is nothing “teen” about this bookcase! A [air flanking a fireplace or window would be STUNNING!

Target + Safavieh Roundup

Target’s latest line with Safavieh has me yelping “That’s from Target?!” left and right these days. I am dying to nab a bunch of these insanely good items for my new addition (which starts in about a week and a half so get ready for lots of renovation posts!)  Here’s my most favorite picks right now (get ‘em while they last!):

Sponsor Welcome: Circa Lighting

There are some vendors that we use over and over again in our daily work at EGD, and Circa Lighting is certainly one of them. So when they asked to become a sponsor I could not think of anything more natural. Their massive and gorgeous collection of lighting is astounding and a designer favorite the world over.  I think it’s an invaluable resource for everyone to have in their back pocket for times of lighting need- here are some of my favorites:

Flush Mounts: An attractive flush mount fixture IS possible! I used the classic star in my entryway (but am way in love with the NEW multi-point star!) I also used the small Paris Flea Market on my closet ceiling recently and it’s so girly and charming.

Chandeliers & Pendants: There are so many good ones here- from kitchen pendants to dramatic dining room chandeliers. We LOVE the classic, antique looking Paris Flea Market Chandelier at EGD, and of course the Hicks pendants (the two tone I used in my kitchen, and have since moved them into the mudroom on a short chain as a ceiling fixture!)

Sconces:  Sconces are really important in bath lighting, but also in other areas of the house. There are SO many to love- from the classic Bryant I have in my bathroom to the Boston Library Sconce with it’s fab arched arm (and name!) Modern or traditional, there are a ton of options.
