Interesting factoid about me, I don't like roses as a flower. So, Paul doesn't give me an arrangement of roses - but that doesn't mean that I don't like roses! In fact, I love it in my lip gloss, my toners, skincare and so much more. Last week, while I was in Philly, Paul went to Lush and got a number of bath products that smelled like roses. It was such an amazing aroma and of course when I began to think about this week's Shoe Sundays - I thought of rose/mauve hued shoes. The inspiration comes from Jill Stuart.
Having a welcoming home is such an essential not only for you but when it comes to inviting people over as well! The little touches let people know a lot more about you and gives great insight into you. There is something about this time of year that definitely makes me look at ways to tweak my living space whether it's accents or the big pieces. This is also true for those that are making plans in terms of their summer homes as those need to be updated as well so that you can enjoy them when you arrive!
I love a great rich neutral that still ranks high on the pop factor! Today's decor is inspired by these fabulous Fendi Slingback Snakeskin Print heels that are amazing with cute dresses for brunch, pairs well with denim and is perfect to be rocked with rompers begging to be dressed up! They're fabulous year around which sets the stage for pieces that you're looking to add into your decor.
GET THE DECOR LOOK
The rich and warm hues look amazing and so I am bringing this into pieces that would be perfect for the living room, office and open areas in your home that are off to the side of rooms. Roll over images to see what pieces are on my radar at the moment including Macy's, Horchow, Urban Outfitters and Gilt.
It's been shoetastic in my world as a number of items have found there way into my closet. With so many, I have been outfitting my office with them as when I'm not wearing them, they become art that everyone can enjoy when they're here. When I like a color, texture etc I find a way to bring it into my living and work space so that I can shake things up a bit. Although there has been a lot of inspiration, I love certain elements that scream Spring/Summer which works well for the current season and can be warmed up during the fall and winter to create a light look when the skies are grey.
When it comes to my handbags, Balenciaga is never far from my thoughts - the City Bags in a number of colors, how can I possibly be expected to choose? But they also have phenomenal footwear as well. I'm loving these Espadrilles that combine navy, white and beige. I love the striped effect which creates a classic preppy feel that's super crisp. This particular style makes me think of nautical, wicker and more which is perfect for an office and allows me to work on deadline, organize samples, get my outfits ready for segments and more.
GET THE DECOR
These shoes made me immediately realize that I needed to have a touch of nautical in my room and I'm in dire need of massive storage. I headed over to Homegoods and found that they had a number of massive baskets and I love that there is a lid. This basket is completely filled with beauty product which is great as when people come over, they can take a few goodies over with them! A leaning mirror allows it to lean on the wall so that I can see my look before I pop out (or you can take a few selfies) - white wash is definitely my style as it's crisp and I'm a huge fan of CB2. Every office needs fabulous chairs and your office should also be a great place to do a photoshoot whenever needed and this chair adds structure to the image and of course if from one of my fave places, Horchow.
When it comes to accents, anchor the room with a fab rug such as this grey and white one which is a bit beach and very casual and is available at Macy's. Prop your legs up on this tufted ottoman or put your favorite style books on it to accessorize your room. Finally, I'm a huge believer that every office should have beverages so that you can instantly congratulate yourself for great deals that you closed, segments that were booked or to toast to the weekend. This Bali teak bar cabinet is perfect to sit within your office and easily accessible.
As I always say, you never know when inspiration strikes and mine came with this fabulous pair of Gianmarco Lorenzi Double Platform Heels (trademark of this fabulous designer) with exposed zipper detailing within the exposed platform. The detailing of this black shoe allowed me to carry this over into great decor options that can add some pop throughout your home!
In the bathroom, add details such as this black and white Legacy Home Linea Graphic Shower Curtain which has a nice architectural feel. Moving into the bedroom, flatsheets by Natori are another classic with a twist as they have a Ming theme on them. Pair this with bedding by Ralph Lauren as it's a classic that never goes out of style.
Moving into the kitchen, I am a huge fan of Mavea as we use this throughout the day, unlike my Penguin which turns my water into seltzer, this container purifies water and can hold large amounts. Paul and I drink from this everyday and many times, my water filters here before being used for my Penguin or Breville (tea maker that I am also obsessed with). In addition, I love fun dessert plates as these are perfect when you're having something sweet or you want to eat from a smaller plate, I love these Vagabond Vintage Black and White plates.
Moving into the living room or wherever you choose to relax in, I think having a Media Cabinet is a must! You can store your media in here OR it's great in your office if you want to store your accessories which is also another fun way to display as well as organize them. Add fun pillows to your space from Horchow which has visually appealing graphics. Finally, we're always charging our tech everywhere and sometimes you just want to talk with others on a phone (you know the ones we grew up on), so these Bluetooth Handset and Charging Stations available in black and white is perfect and adds a bit of pop in your decor!
Although gold is not a color people see me wearing in my outfits, it is a color that I love seeing within decor options! I'm inspired by this fab art deco gold and emerald bracelet from Lucas Jack in terms of how to bring this within your home office. This wing tipped chair is the perfect way to establish your work space and of course work from this fab olive brand chest that is ornate.
Now it's all about the accents and the need to accessorize your space on another level. I love this leather Moroccan gold ottoman which can be used to prop your feet as well as to have extra seating space. This gold pillow is also a great choice with its ruching.
When the lighting's right you can get a number of items done and you never know when inspiration strikes so having this Antoinette mirror across the way to catch it is definitely encouraged.
Finally, feel like a queen by popping in emerald to the look whether it's your mug, toasting glass. Finally, even when you're working hard, your nourishment should still be presented in a fabulous way - like this Williams Sonoma fabulous platter which is made out of stone and accented by silver (not gold but I love mixing metal)!
- Find comfy seating for pitch meetings and watching video feeds for future coverage
- Organize our samples for shoots and vids
- Create a cozy nook for shoots and vids
- Create inspiration with our samples by having them displayed in the office - it is fashionable after all
- We agree with Bravo's Jeff Lewis that every evening should be a martini break at the office
We have been working like anything to turn one of the Kitten Lounge's spaces into a hybrid between a closet as well as a room to work in which allows us to shoot videos and to hold our meetings internally! Although there have been some ups and downs, it's good to get to the point of thinking of what to bring into the space. We have plans of making this fully functional within the next few months and as I'm a fan of making lists, you can see above what we're focused on! We want comfy seating so we can chat as well as to watch red carpet coverage from the office as we tweet or to think about what I'm wearing when I'm on the way to thinking about my segments. Samples are a huge issue with us as we shoot with them, use them for our spreads and more. We also want to have a section where we can do shoots here for things that don't need a huge production around it. Our samples stay a bit longer then we initially think whether we use them for a number of projects, are awaiting for them to go back somewhere or it's decided that they become owned by us - why store them away when it can become apart of our decor - hello storage that keeps them in a dedicated space but allows us to be inspired! Finally, we love on Bravo that Jeff Lewis' team is known for having martinis at cocktail 'o clock and we do too! There's something about toasting the end of a successful Fashion Week season, projects we've enjoyed closing (which is all of them) or to hail my return after a long trip - all of it needs to be done well and why not start here.
I want to share with you our initial points to tackle as we continue to go forward! I've been obsessed with the Napa Kitchen/Bar Carts for awhile and this one from JCPenney is perfect as it makes your options mobile. A simple drink can now open itself up to having light snacks whether it's after work or watching Fashion Police! Bookshelves are fantastic when they're art even when empty! We're excited to see our shoes, jewelry pieces and more sitting there on this Maria Yee Ventana shelf on Gump's. A proper bar set is key and is the only civilized thing to have in the office we love this Waterford barware set. We love a fabulous coffee table that can double as quick seating such as this reclaimed table from Anthropologie. I grew up with wing tip chairs in the living room as well as having them in my mother's bedroom! It's so decadent and I think no room should exist without one and this Biltmore Chair - this is perfect for the office and can also work well in a shoot. Glam it up with these Marrakesh style pillows from Horchow with this rich orange hue - amazing! We will keep you up to date on the progress and once completed or within our beginning steps, we will show you as well. Going forward, many of our videos will be done here so you'll see how it all worked out and the brands that graciously became our sponsors for our enlightened and inspirational space!
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.
You never know where inspiration for your decor strikes but when it comes to my accessories, I let that take the lead! I'm obsessed with Ramiro Encizo who has this fab back that's blue and black! What I love is that if you look carefully. there are a blend of hues in blue which is perfect to dress up an outfit or to ensure that your living and dining rooms are set! I am a huge fan of Moroccan vibes and infusing other motifs within them. I'm loving this Knoll couch which reminds me a bit of the 60's parties and is perfect to catch a snoozy with the perfect throw. Enjoy nibbles dipped in various flavors by DVF. For a bigger spread, this Ethan Allen tray is decorative and can hold anything you have been whipping up in the kitchen. Keep the lighting intimate with this pendant light from Ylighting. Keep the theme coming with these fab shakers that continue the Moroccan theme at Macy's. Pillows add an extra layer of texture and are perfect with the theme and we're huge Horchow fans!
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.
The last two days have been bridal filled as I have been covering items that you will see on Kitten Lounge next week. Whether you're adding to your office or simply looking to add to your nook, make sure that you have these items to keep everything in its place! I'm loving Native Union's Curve BT iDock which allows you to charge your phone while you chit chat on this fab phone in a number of colors. On days where I have a number of conference calls, this is the perfect way to tackle work. I love this chair which is patterned in chevron from Horchow. I'm always in the midst of projects whether it's random samples, snippets of paper or who knows what - this Cubby Organizer from Pottery Barn keeps order to possible chaos. Finally, an organized deck should always be chic like these crocodile accessories from Neiman Marcus. We love this as it gets us into a huge focus on Kitten Lounge, the Ultimate Digital Fashion Office! As we upgrade our loft, we're letting you in on how you can have the perfect office to take in your samples, do photoshoots and more!

With New York Fashion Week and Shoe Week being around the corner, I have to say that the fall is a huge season where I seriously look to fix up my closets! Maybe it's because I like to ensure that I have room for brands that will be dressing me at NYFW, that I tend to have a number of items for future dressing opportunities sent to me and of course - there is my own shopping habit! With that said, people ask me all the time what they can do to maximize their spaces in a simple way. What I love is the fact that many times you can go to Container Store to get these shoe organizers. I love that you can put them in your closet and use the rod that is already there and place the desired number on there!
As I write this, I can't believe that NYFW is a month away and that my co-founder and I will be launching Shoe Week. As you can imagine, I have quite an extensive collection of shoes and I believe that since we spend time curating our collections, we shouldn't have them in our closets. So in our offices, we showcase our fabulous shoes. This bookshelf which looks like a leaning shelving unit is available at Kohl's is the perfect way to show your favorites! Here, I have included Gianmarco Lorenzi, Giuseppe Zanotti, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexandre Birman and Christian Louboutin are fabulous to present - we all have our faves!
Whether you have a separate office or a second room within your home, you can have as many shelving units as you think is necessary to contain your odds and ends as well as your shoes. In addition, make sure you have a cozy chair like this one via Crate & Barrel. Place this fab leather pillow in the arm via Design Within Reach and this cozy floor pillow at CB2. I'm all about fun lighting and love this pendant lamp from Ylighting and when you need to make sure that you're perfectly coifed, this beveled mirror from Horchow.
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.
Now that I am settled back in NYC - I can focus on the long weekend! This one is about keeping it easy and making sure that there are plenty of beverages and snacks on hand! As many of you know, I'm a huge fan of wine and the varieties that I love continue to expand! There seems to be a club for everything that you're interested in and wine is no exception! Check out Club W which is a subscription service that allows you to choose how many bottles you want a month to come to your home (3, 6 or 12 bottles a month). You can select or have a sommelier choose them for you. I love the packaging and this is perfect to give as a gift or to ensure that you have wine on hand. I love that there are videos available online to tell you about the wine you're about to pick and/or consume which is super helpful! If you're going to have a wine party at home, make sure you have cute glasses like this set at Kohl's. Wine that needs to be chilled can be in this fabulous bucket which definitely catches your eye and is available at Horchow. For snacks, whether you use them for fries or other nibbles, the Pottery Barn has these cute mini buckets!
I love turquoise! It's one of my favorite colors and jewelry pieces as well so of course in terms of inspiration for your room, this is a fab hue! My inspiration comes from this fabulous Oscar de la Renta as he's all about drama, ruffles and pops of fab color! Now, moving onto where this can be infused, we'll start with my newest obsession - chandeliers. A fab alternative is turquoise beads and I'm loving this draped one from my fave home decor place, Horchow. This is perfect in your living room and can be paired with these fabulous Marrakech curtains from Anthropologie and of course, pop your feet up on Massoud's storage cubes which can hide your fabulous clutter as well. Finally, enter your sanctuary and enjoy Trink Turk's bedding which calls out to your inner Santorini!
Last night, I enjoyed having an intimate preview of one of my favorite fashion shows in bridal, Romona Keveza. I love that she is always at the St Regis. During her earlier shows she has a full runway show on the 2nd floor and then she either shows at the Dior Suite or the Presidential Suite. Yesterday, it was the Presidential Suite and as we watched Legends hit each of the rooms, I began to think about how everything you see inspires the space. This peplum (which can be detached) bridal gown, placed within a room with wood, neutrals and a hint of green with the florals was the inspiration with the overall look of the perfect room that begs to be used as a place for nibbles, conversation and relaxation! I'm loving this wing tipped chair by Ethan Allen with this plaid chair with grey, ecru and white. When sitting with friends, this can be paired with a fabulous couch and this Jocelyn Coffee Table by Horchow which has a glass stop, curved legs and is just pleasing to the eye. When having friends over, Royal Doulton Light Green Chip & Dip Set from Cooking.com is the perfect way to have appetizers and you can enjoy a few martinis from this Waterford Pitcher available at Gump's. Finally keep the mood going with fabulous lighting from the Avante Marble Table Lamp which is also available at Ethan Allen.
Whether you're on Tumblr or Pinterest, you know that people are obsessing over the crisp and summer hue known as Mint! I love it too and had to share fabulous finds. Inspired by this fab dress on eDress Me.com, I have paired it with a number of pieces thaty you can bring into your home in order to enjoy this color as everyone else has! Neiman Marcus which is another favorite of mine, this distressed side cabinet is perfect for the living room, office or other spaces that need a cute cabinet that can also be additional storage. Another fave is Horchow which has this fabulously decadent lamp in mint with pops of gold. It's all about scents and the diffuser by Makenzie-Childs is bound to visually transport you to this hue while also doing so as you smell it throughout your home! Finally, I love this globe which makes geography uber chic done in mint via Design Within Reach!
I'm a huge fan of python and it's apart of a number of my accessories - so why not have it throughout your living space as well? I love this fab pair of Christian Louboutin's and the fact that it can inspire your room whether it's a living room or the bedroom. Calvin Klein has a very couple friendly bedding set which is the perfect way to bring this into your room. Store things away in your office within these Faux Snakesin Stacking Boxes at Gump's. Light your space with the John Richard Collection - I love this lamp shade. Finally, I love a fun chest to store your jewelry away and this one by R&Y Augousti is the perfect accessory to have within your home!
Lakme Fashion Week continues and I'm always a fan of white! It such a crisp color and on top that, I love that when you accent it with other hues it looks even better! To that end, I enjoyed seeing Suhani Pittie and Nimish Shah which showcased this hue within their shows. Of course with Sunday being our decor editions, I thought about how you could bring this into your home.
I like the idea of having at least one piece being completely white such as this fab cushoined couch available at Horchow. This white and black pillow sham is the perfect accent by Lauren by Ralph Lauren. I'm also obsessed with this fabulous mosaic lamp at Horchow which also has a stark white crisp lampshade which is piped in an accent color. This footstool by Ballard Designs is a must without a doubt! Since you have to have a sense of time, this minimalist Dot Clock by Areaware is the perfect item to pop into your living or sitting room.
With Fashion Week (at least here in NY) behind us, I am taking a few days to regroup, organize and to prep before I head out to LA with Paul! There is no better way to do this than with tea! Much like the Penguin (which is still my fave as it turns water into seltzer), I am now tied with my obsession of Breville's One Touch Tea Maker also available at Williams Sonoma! You can select what kind of tea you are brewing and how many cups you'll enjoy. I love that even after brewing, it will still stay hot an hour later - yes the tea definitely tastes better and I can't have it any other way now! If you're going to enjoy your tea, you have to have other accessories!
I'm a huge fan of Moroccan design (and of Horchow), food, etc so these tea glasses are the perfect way to enjoy a cup of tea! In case there are spills, this tea towel, available at West Elm is perfect to have on hand. Williams Sonoma also has a Honey Dipper which I love as I generally put this in my tea as opposed to sugars, the spoon ensures that you have the perfect amount. Finally, present your tea whether it's for yourself or for a group, via R&Y's Augousti Large Shagreen Tray at Barney's.
Happy New Year! We have 12 months to make an amazing impact no matter what our goals are! Prosperity is definitely the focus of this year and with that in mind, I introduce you to the inspiration behind today's decor post - Leibish & Co's gorgeously decadent Argyle Pink Diamond which comes in at a fabulous 1.68 carats (incidentally, this number translates to China's prosperity sign thus it is also known as a Prosperity Diamond)! In it's 3rd year of Leibish and Co winning this award, it's one that definitely should be shared here. This amaze pink hue is one that can be infused throughout your home in a stylish way!
I love that the theme of prosperity is wrapped around this diamond and love that you can spread this hue throughout your home as well! Pops of pink can be incorporated into your living room with this fab wing tipped chair by Hotel Maison at Horchow (as you know how much I love decor pieces from there). Dress your bookshelf with a pop of somethign different with Kosta Boda's vase which has a yellow and pink hue in it! If you have an island, it's for more than cooking and storing mail - Anthousa's Violet and Black Currant (yum) infuser is the perfect item to include to bring in aromatic delight and a vibrant color. Cleaning up champagne spills just got fab with this dishtowel from Anthropologie which brings in a number of hues that embrace pink! Finally, call it a night and cozy up with Missoni's throw!
We have a lot of beauty product that we use but we also tend to have a special place to put some of the finer stuff out. If you have a phenomenal vanity like this mirror one from Horchow, you'd definitely feel like you were in the luxe of beauty. I love when you're about to step out the door and ou do the last minute looks to ensure that you look fab. You can place your favorite shimmer glows from Pacifica on the top! Spritz yourself before you head out with a fabulous scent and even more fabulush bottle by Guerlain. Take a peek at yourself and apply Mor lip balm on your pucker with another last primp by Mason Pearson!
The holidays are definitely here whether you're thinking about the major ones you participate in OR you think of all the ways that you think of having people over as we build up to the big days! Your dining room table becomes even more appropriate and should be dressed accordingly! We were inspired by Interior Design Expert and Founder of Dinette.com, Michael Craig (stay tuned to what you can do with your space by following @DinetteGuy who is familiar with maximizing spaces and seeking the luxe in glam in a number of ways! It's always about the details and ensuring that your personality comes through as well so that your eating space reflects your overall living space! Dinette.com is a great source to get a fabulous table within a number of styles that speak to you - just like the table above.
Just as Michael believes that you can jazz up your fave couch with fun pops of color with pillows, your table can get the same treatment with napkins - I'm loving the boho chic vibe of these napkins by Williams Sonoma! They are a great and easy way to make your table phenomenal and get napkin rings (loving the ones available at Barney's New York which plays to my keeping it natural but glammy sensibilities) that are interesting - you won't have to worry about how to fold your napkins and it's a great conversation piece. Michael believes that you can quickly luxe your table by, "adding a shiny bowl to your tabletop - nuts look great in a glitzy silver bowl". His belief here can also be said for choice in flatware and other serving platters and bowls. Whether you opt for silver, gold or bronze - it looks amazing! Horchow is our constant friend on Kitten Lounge and we love that they offer a number of options from one of our favorite designers, Michael Aram when it comes to serving your guests items. In addition, how can you not love the flatware that calls to the Bronze Age and is available at Anthropologie.
With all the meals that you will be hosting and the fact that some guests may definitely come more than once, make sure to add in candles - a fab suggestion by Michael as it sets the mood whether you're going for something romantic or simply want to awaken the senses to appropriately set the mood. Bring in your aesthetic but we don't need to say everything about ourselves at once - I love looking at pictures but even Michael says, "edit your framed pictures - too much is too much". Finally, lighting is everything and he suggests, "dimmers are key - mood lighting always helps control the ambiance".
You know our Sunday focus takes on an article of clothing that we are drooling over and inspires us to get the rest of our home to pay homage to this! Today we're all about vintage Chanel in this fabulous berry shade and I love the trumpet detail with the fab neck. In honor of that here are some ways to pop in this fab berry/persimmon color which works well for the holiday season as well as being the perfect winter choice in terms of hues!
I'm loving Pottery Barn as they have the berry wreath motif in time for the holiday season by using the wreath as well as having that (with optional monogramming) on their pillows. It's great for the home and the perfect gift as well. For the liing room, we can never have too much Horchow and I am loving this sofa which is stately but also perfectly Victorian. Light this Voluspa candle in a fab Japonica scent. When it comes to the kitchen, I'm loving Kitchen Aid's tea kettle. For those that are thinking of one of my fave items to eat - this Roma Electric Tomato Strainer is a nice addition to the kitchen when it's time to make your famed sauce which can be canned to make a fab gift for others when they come visit you!
Earlier in the week, my sister and I were walking around the home department of a store and of course we were bombarded by holiday sets everywhere balanced pretty evenly between Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. When you're in the last few months of the year, you literally move from one event to the next only to be planning the next dinner, party or social soiree. With that said Oct and Nov are dominated by orange! It's the harvest season and although we identify this with the time of year since it happens on our trees, it can sometimes seem daunting to accent our home in this hue as well as to keep it there throughout the year. Orange is a fab color that works throughout the calendar season and shouldn't be relegated to pumpkins only (although how cute is this Sur La Table pumpkin candle).
Jessica Simpson's Princess pump pointed me in the appropriate orange direction by thinking outside of the hue box by taking the shade as we know it while also playing with the mixing of hues to create a look that is uniquely our own. I'm loving the bright orange that is found in the Orange Moroccan Pouf by Posh Tots (they also have this in other colors) and obviously, each week I pull something from Horchow that is a must - this week it's all about the poppy bowl - I do love a nice glass piece. Horchow comes to your bedroom, where it can be a harvest to citrus oasis depending on the season.The kitchen becomes fun thanks to the conical bowls from Cooking.com. Continue spreading the love with pops of pillows by Design Public and infuse this fab scent by Archipelago Botanicals.
