There's nothing like snuggling in your home whether it's curling up with a loved one, a good book, your laptop, watching TV or whatever you do when you get inside your four walls! As always, every Sunday we look at how to enhance our living space with a nod to a fab fashionable item. Today, we've fallen in love with this fabulous Mary Green (in addition to doing fabulous lingerie, she is also the designer of fabulous sleep masks and it wasn't until including today's chemise, that I realized that she created the very much so coveted Breakfast at Tiffany's inspired sleeping mask that you may have seen all over a number of websites - so on our list this year and a must when traveling) 1930's chemise which is available at Brooklyn Fox Lingerie! I love the ornate silk and lace garment which is perfect for lounging around the house on a weekend! You can also check out more items available at this fab boutique as in addition to lingerie, they have a number of swimwear brands, shapewear and more. This classic hue can be placed throughout your home just in time for the holiday as well as when this season is over.
Deck your trees, mantles and more with these fabulous Gold Sequin Ornaments which keep the holidays as accessorized as it should be thanks to the Land of Nod! Add more pop and texture to your window seat, bed, couch or favorite chair with this fabulous Donna Karan Glimmer Star pillow at Neiman Marcus. Place your petite gifts in these fab Champagne Frost Christmas Stockings at Neiman Marcus. Feel like royalty with Isabella Collection by Kathy Fielder in a Damask style at another of our fave retailers, Horchow. Adorn your walls with a Gold Antoinette Mirror at Neiman Marcus and after a day of enjoying the indoors in a luxe way, prepare your beverage of choice in Same Cristallerie Four Gold-Patterned Goblets Neiman Marcus.
A few years ago, I found out about LAQA & Co and loved that they had a nail pen which allowed you to paint your nails (which keeps your hands steady as you apply color). While I was doing appearances in New Orleans, I was flipping through my weeklies and found that this same brand had the Fat Lip Pencils! I love these - for the past few times that I have been on HSN, I have used these types of pencils to fill in the lip which creates a glossy look and then layer it with another gloss on top. I had to get more nail colors and test out this lip pencil! I will definitely share in a post next week about this but for now, the Fat Lip Pencil in Fairyblood (True Blood is coming on later tonight so I love that the name reminds of one of my favorite shows) and then Fancypants Nail Polish Pen in grey. As is typical of every Sunday, I love showing how accessories or beauty items become inspiration for an entire room!
I am such a Breakfast at Tiffanys, Doris Day, etc fan so this reminds me of a drawing room that I would love to have. Voluspa Candles is one of my favorite aromatic brands. I love that the outside of the tins are decadent and that they embody the hues of today's LAQA &Co colors. This tufted couch from Horchow is a great color that is a muted tone while being vibrant. Set up extra seating with this cubed ottoman also available at Horchow. Finally, this blush chandelier is the perfect way to tie this room together.
My inspirations reach far and wide when it comes to putting a room together. The other week, I had the opportunity to try Rhuby, a liqueur that has rhubarb in it! Without a doubt I had to try it in at least 2 of the favorite ways that I like to have a beverage at home! My first choice was mixing it in tea. Thanks to my boyfriend's mom she has made me obsessed with the Breville (available at Williams - Sonoma which brews teas. Simply select your favorite then highlight the button that corresponds with your tea and you have the perfect cup. I have also been making iced tea by basically brewing it and then putting it over ice and making it in large pitchers. So after brewing some Jasmine Tea, I included some Rhuby which had a very nice flavor to it - super light and I didn't need sugar as the liqueur was all that I needed in it to make it sweet! She also got us the Penguin which turns water into seltzer (also available at Williams - Sonoma). I love this as I mix a lot of my drinks with seltzer and so I simply put in the Rhuby which allowed me to enjoy the full sweet and slightly tart taste of this drink! Although this is a beverage that comes out of Sweden, it just became available in NYC on June 1st so I will have to try other ways of having this drink and I can't wait to see the bottle which reminds me of perfume!
With such a fab pink hue, I thought of ways to bring this color into your home. Obviously in drinkware, I'm loving Anthropologie who has an Aldo pitcher perfect for making a number of drinks at one time and then these interestingly shaped glasses as well. When it comes to popping color on your couch, with the Monumento pillow. Fill this Kosta Boda bowl with some treats for a get together and even light a candle by one of my favorite brands, Vouspa in this pink citron scent!
