We do love a long weekend and with it being Veterans Day tomorrow, this is a great way to relax a bit and to truly prep for the week ahead! With that said, your room is your sanctuary and if you have the opportunity to put more elements in it, why not? I've always been a fan of Damask for decor and love that you can infuse this within your bedding. Available at Neiman Marcus, these quilts (as well as other portions of the bed) can add an old world quality to the look. You can also ensure that it speaks to your personality by mixing other solid or prints with it to make it your own. Open up the room by having an amazing mirror, this Venetian style looking glass makes your room feel like a parlor or drawing room.
I love a lazy day in bed or a productive one in bed! Either way, having tea is an essential way for me to get moving and although I am OBSESSED with my Williams Sonoma, I do love this flared tea pot set by Joyce Chen. Of course if you have enough room, there should always be a seating area in your room as sometimes a day in one space needs to be broken up. I'm loving Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams rectangular ottoman.
You know that I'm a huge fan of minimalism with a pop of vibrant color! With that said, in a dream world I would have white bedding as nothing ever stains! I've always been a fan of Anthropologie and love how this bedding makes me think that each night I have the pleasure of sleeping on Cloud 9! With Fashion Week being days away and juggling the schedule of Kitten Lounge in addition to the launch of , my personal space is even more important to me each day! This chair by Lily Pulitzer Home is available at Neiman Marcus. I love that this navy and white chair with pink piping can sit comfortably in an all white room. As usual, my shoes become my mobile art and today, it's all about this heeless pair of Alexander McQueen shoes which always make a room feel more whimsical! Make your room feel warmer with this fab lighting from YLighting which carries on my Japanese theme in this room along with the Katagami prints available at Crate and Barrel. Finally, who doesn't love to nibble on sushi and to make it special to put it on plates such as these from CB2?
You don't get any simpler than black and white! It's one of my favorite looks that always makes a statement no matter where you happen to be at the moment. Today's classic look which is getting shaken up with a modern twist is inspired by this shirt dress and sash combo available at . To get this look throughout your room, head over to Urban Outfitters where I'm loving this zig zag dress form whichis a great way for you to see how your outfit will look. The flower curtain is also an excellent touch as well. Finally the last item available at Urban Outfitters in this spread is from, Lomography La Sardina DXL Analogue Camera Bedding with amazing black and white prints from Ralph Lauren is the perfect way to lay in bed all day while inhaling Fornasetti Palazzo Candle which gives you a sense of architecture as well as a little bit of a Calgon moment!
As an Accessories Expert, I'm always sharing my essential accessory picks with everyone and I naturally gravitate towards those that are accessory designers. A few years ago I remember Sabina reaching out to me about her scarves and weeks later, I found myself at the Soho House at a trunk show and happened to meet the designer and her printed scarves without knowing that she would be there! From then on, we'd run into each other, I'd share her trunk shows taking place at Bloomingdale's in Soho or at Henri Bendels! Recently, we were both at a phenomenal event for the book launch of Always in Style which included her scarves within the styling. I'm always happy to see and hear her so above as always, you can find out more about Sabina Les who is bringing back the love of scarves, prints and just a new way to showcase ourselves! Find out her favorite loves and of course we;ll fill in the rest here!
She's a super busy lady and of course you can catch her at her trunk shows in Henri Bendels this month April 20th - 23rd and 27th - 30th! With so much going on, we love that she's as attached to her iPhone as I am with my HTC and like many of us, her next step to stay connected fashionably is to start rocking an iPad (I suggest creating some kind of a case that has the printed scarf look to it). Both her iPhone (and I'm sure iPad) will keep her organized with Evernote, Twitter, Dictation, Solitaire and Sudoku (sometimes organization needs to have some fun in there too).
The success of Sabina Les can't be denied as she is in the Accessories Council and has been featured on the Today Show, Elle and so much more. So of course, I wanted to know what will be coming up for this progressive designer! First off she explained that, "I'd love to see a confident and fashionable woman rocking my scarves. A dynamic woman who appreciates the versatility of a great fashion accessory like any of my scarves." I love knowing that she loves the everyday woman as much as any celeb that is rocking her pieces. In the future, you can expect, "silk cocktail purses and jewelry to the brand. Also, my first introduction into home market with silk printed cushions." Without question, pop into her trunk show and of course start rocking her pieces whether in your outfits or within your home!
