25 Favorites from Nordstrom Home

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

I’ve always loved Nordstrom for clothing, accessories, makeup and shoes but never really thought of them for home goods.  Well, they are adding a lot of great stuff to their e-commerce site for the home and they asked me to share some of my favorite items (most for under $200!)

1. & 6 These black and cream Danby cookware pieces are SO CHIC. I’d happily trade my bright red Le Crueset for them!

2. Adore these polka dot stemless wine glasses form Kate Spade.

3. Cool branch candlesticks.

4. The prettiest packaging on these Monique Lhuillier candles (my wedding dress designer!)

5. LOVE this cutting board. Like, for reals.

7. A rustic woven throw perfect to add texture to any space.

8. Vintage cool alarm clock.

9. A crisp black bordered pillow.

10. OK, this little plate made me laugh because it reminds me of this one time my parents got a grill with a rotisserie and after working so hard to get the chicken on the thing and then actually roasted, my mom could notfigure out how to get it OFF the rotisserie. Cut to me walking outside to find her whacking at the chicken with a butcher knife in frustration, with all the dogs standing around her delighted as pieces of chicken rained down on them. I think she needs this.

11. A pretty, detailed quilt, great for layering on a bed.

12. Cool grey and white ikat chevron sheets.

13. Adore the little sayings on these Andrea Schroder candles, and Basil Lemongrass sound perfect to light in the kitchen!

14. Simple, pretty hem-stiched sheets.

15. Adore the emerald stitching on this accent pillow.

16. Yummy towels. I always need new towels and these have good reviews!

17. They sell the Westin Heavenly Bed line and I bet this comforter rocks (may have to order for my new bed!)

18. This stripe throw reminds me of my favorite striped shirts!

19. I’ve used these hobnail candles on a couple photoshoots. Love the texture, and you can use the glass to hold makeup brushes or pens when it’s burned down!

20. Adorable navy ikat polka dot shower curtain (paired with navy walls- adorbs.)

21. Velvet and tassel pillows in a few colors.

22. Another hilariously awesome gift- a wine holder for the bathtub or shower. I mean, if you drink wine in the shower you might have a problem, but in the tub is TOTALLY acceptable. And this keeps it from slipping off the edge of the tub and INTO your bath (which has totally never happened to me. Ever.)

23.  A petite Merci sign to remind one of Paris.

24. Adorable print tiny bowls perfect for sauces, snacks and the like.

25. I love the brass bathroom accessories from Waterworks Studio (also the marble ones!)

An Inspired Patio

Monday, April 7th, 2014

I saw this drop dead gorgeous image of the terrace at the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York and thought it was fantastic inspiration for anyone’s own patio!  I have some of Peter Dunham’s Fig Leaf pillows in my own sunroom and even though it’s been seen everywhere I have to say I STILL love it above all other pillows in my home.  Some things just stay fresh, and this print is one of them.

So here’s how I’d translate this terrace into a patio or porch design…

inspired

sofa // curtains // light // pillow // glasses // table // chairs // lantern // string lights // rug // planters

And if the Peter Dunham is too pricey, there is a great alternative on Spoonflower by Domesticate called Tropicali Afternoon.

Sponsor Welcome: Arianna Belle

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

I have a serious addiction to throw pillows. They are by far the easiest way to change up the looks of a living room or bedroom without spending big bucks. I am always playing around with different samples for clients but never have actually had custom pillows made for my own living room! Isn’t that nuts? As I try to pick some for myself (finally), I get to introduce you to one of my new sponsors Arianna Belle, who makes pillows from designer fabrics for great prices. :)  And for right now she’s offering free shipping with the code EOSLOVE of your order of $100 or more (ONLY VALID UNTIL FEB 26, 2013).  Check out some of my favorites. SUCH great fabric selections- I’ve used many of these myself for clients!

Sheridan French Home

Monday, March 19th, 2012

I have long loved and admired the design sensibility and sense of fun that Sheridan French embodies.  And I was so happy to see a little feature on her new home accessories line in Traditional Home this month! Her signature bright ikats are being reincarnated as pillows, napkins and place mats and I am quite obsessed with her gold tone napkin rings in the shape of her logo.

And while we’re at it I might as well tell you that I am alllllll about these pieces for spring. Especially my upcoming Charleston trip!

Um, NEED.

NEED 2.0

Do we even need to discuss how cute and perfect she is? I didn’t think so. But we can.

New Pillows for Sale!

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

We added some fun new throw pillows to the Elements of Style Etsy shop!

I posted this picture on Twitter of the pillow I had made for my guest bed of this INSANE vintage fabric I found in an antique shop recently….

I had some pillows made to sell of the same fabric. I am obsessed with the color combination- dark green, chartreuse, pink, white and grey! YUM!

Some Celerie Kemble Betwixt pillows, perfect for any space.  Looks great paired with florals or any other organic pattern!

I found this ikat chevron fabric at Mood in NYC- I backed it in navy and added an applique border….

Who doesn’t love zebra? Especially zebra piped in turquoise!?
