Every January, buyers flock to the 3 big home markets: Atlanta, Dallas, and Vegas. While I didn’t attend this year I find that it’s always fun to look through Instagram hashtags and following along with Instagram stories! It really helps me get a sense of what’s to come, interiors-wise, in the year! I found many common themes and lots of beautiful eye candy!
I saw a lot of rich jewel tones from Worlds Away.
This dark green paint color was one of our predictions for 2017! Check out our favorite dark green paint colors and accessories here!
Layering neutrals is one of my favorite looks. These spaces below are full of interest and prove that neutral doesn’t have to mean boring!
I love the legs on this Tritter Feefer dining table!
TONS OF TEXTURE
This ties in with the layered neutrals above and is the key to achieving the look. I saw a lot of textured pottery and special furniture pieces.
It seems like this shade is popping up everywhere in accessories and accent furniture!
How cool is the faux bois patterned pillow?!

The St. Louis summer heat has finally subsided and fall is in the air! I tend to want to curl up on the couch with a book, blanket and a scented candle around this time of year! I was inspired by Arhaus to share some quick tips on how you can make your home feel cozy during these cooler months.
Everyone first thinks of orange as the go-to fall color. However, I tend to lean toward neutrals and muted colors. Olive green, plum, golden yellow and warm metals are some favorites as well.
As the weather gets colder, we tend to add on layers: a blazer, scarf, etc. The same goes for your home. Drape a chunky throw over your sofa and keep a few extra in a textural basket nearby. Another idea is to layer a plush shag rug over a jute/sisal rug for a soft feeling underfoot.
Now is the time to introduce some heavier textiles into your space. Velvets, cable knits, faux fur and hide all add interest and warmth.
BRING THE OUTDOORS IN
Simply placing a deer shed atop a stack of books, displaying a dish of mini gourds or acorns and sticking some freshly cut ginkgo stems in a vase can go a long way.
FALL INSPIRED LIVING ROOM
What is your favorite way to incorporate the fall season into your home? Do you prefer a subtle look or do you embrace the season with full force?
With Father’s Day quickly approaching, we find ourselves thinking of all the important men in our lives and how we can make their day special. Perhaps a relaxing, well-designed sanctuary could be the perfect gift. Today we’re discussing the three main elements that shape a stylish masculine space and we’ve included some great pieces to incorporate.
Neutrals and earth tones are great for a more masculine interior. Start with a classic palette of black and white or a muted olive green to set the tone, then layer in more saturated tones through artwork and pillows.
Masculine rooms tend to have strong, simple lines and rarely contain curvy, intricate pieces. When making selections, choose pieces with simple, angular elements. Geometric shapes play a big role in the design; think graphic rugs and artwork. Fabrics with a classic pinstripe, plaid or herringbone pattern give a nod to menswear and create interest without feeling fussy. Remember when accessorizing, less is more! Accessories need to serve a purpose or be meaningful or simplistic in design.
The blending of rough and smooth surfaces will help you achieve a masculine look. Blend natural materials such as stone or wood with sleek metals or glass like a polished light fixture or accent table. Leather is the quintessentially masculine element of any space. It can add such warmth, texture and richness to a space. Try adding a chair or sofa for impact or simple leather pulls or a pouf for a lighter touch.
