46 Great Coffee Tables

A good coffee table can really make or break your living room- functionally and visually. It has to hold the items you need at hand (remotes, magazines, candles…) but also sometimes serve as a dining table (or if you are me and Andrew, ALL the time) and provide a place for food and drink when entertaining.  So picking the right one for your family is essential. So I decided to round up 45 great choices to help make the process easier!

One of my favorite images from my book shot by Michael J. Lee.  This coffee table by Worlds Away is a perennial favorite because of it’s medium size, simple construction and lower shelf for storage- in fact, it’s the same on I have in my living room!

Nursery Design Reveal!

The pressure to make this nursery something spectacular has been intense- mostly of my own doing, but also because it’s been such a long time coming and I want it to be beyond perfect! While I was long debating the bold versus serene vibe, I knew in my heart that I wanted something soothing but also with a modern edge. So I decided to really mix both traditional items with modern ones- buffalo plaid, scenic wallpaper, lucite, brass and streamlined furniture.  I am loving it, and I think when I’m trapped inside all winter with a newborn it will be such a peaceful place to relax with the baby.  And I know there are lots of people who will think this is impractical or not “bold” enough for the baby- but it’s basically where he will sleep and feed. The rest of my house in so black and white I think he’ll develop just fine. :) So here it is!

“No Regrets” Purchases

When decorating a space you are bound to make mistakes. We all do. We buy things just to fill a space instead of waiting for something we really love or maybe it’s something super trendy that falls out of favor quickly.  Perhaps it’s even a paint color you no longer like seeing everyday that you once were just MAD for.  It’s so common, and designers arenot immune to making purchasing mistakes either!

But then there are things that we say “thank GOODNESS I bought that” about because you still love them years later.  I have a few purchases like that and thought I’d round them up and tell you a little about why I love them so much.  Listening to your gut seems to be a resounding tip when looking at all these decisions together! When I don’t follow my instincts, I tend to waste money on things I don’t love.

So here are my “no regrets” purchases and design decisions:

1.) My leopard stair runner.  This was a bold move and I was nervous that I would tire of it, but I haven’t! At all! Not only do I still love the look of it, the functionality is beyond awesome- it hides absolutely everything and still looks new two years later!

Fashion Break: Stock Up for Fall

I know, it’s the middle of summer. But I can’t help but think about fall fashion since it’s starting to come out (even though I won’t be able to wear most of it!)  Nordstrom is having it’s annual Anniversary Sale and it’s full of awesome finds for fall so I had to share.  It’s smart to pick up staples for fall NOW at sale prices- think trends like suede skirts, wool coats, blanket wraps, denim, leather, boots and faux fur.  Here are things I’m eyeing in the sale (click on images for direct links!)

Pretty good, right?? Anyone else excited for fall or am I alone in my lunacy after last winter?
