spooky inspiration

Do Not Panic. You still have time to decorate the porch just in time for trick’or’treaters! If you are not any sort of DIY crafter, Etsy can help. But a trip to Target or Joanne’s or Cost Plus may just do the trick. (Those links take you STRAIGHT to the Halloween section—you’re welcome.)

SO don your witch hat, gather up some gourds and some stuffed crows AND the good kind of candy and make this Halloween a night to remember.

room recipe: reduce, re-use, recycle

One of the best and most glamorous ways to decorate a home is by selecting antiques and vintage items; well-loved pieces with previous lives imbue a unique style and sensibility to your space. Sources like Chairish, 1st Dibs, Etsy, Craig’s List and ebay are great for finding fabulous stuff. And when you shop that way, you are doing your part to save the planet. Good deeds never looked so beautiful.

It's that time of year...kids flying the nest, trying to put together cool pads with roommates or by themselves and with no idea where to start. We are here to help.  We put together a set of items, easy on the eyes, durable and comfortable --but also easy on the pocketbook. Remember to ask the landlord to paint the interior "Decorator White" before move-in day so that the perfect neutral backdrop for the new digs is all set.  Those thrift store/garage sale/hand-me-down artworks will look great against the clean, white walls so you can really stamp your new space with your own grown-up style.

Of course, the navy blue is just a suggestion but the sofa, stools and the rug will take whatever your friends throw at them and still look stylish.  xo, Carolyn
