Get The Look: Using A High Contrast Color Scheme To Create A Sophisticated Guest Bathroom

Guest bathrooms and powder rooms are among my favorite spaces to experiment with new styles. They’re relatively small, which means you won’t need a lot of time or materials to totally transform the space. They’re also less frequently used, which means you can be a little bolder with your choices than you might for a […]

Showcasing A Signature Art Piece (Without Redoing Your Whole Living Room)

Buying a big, expensive piece of art is something of a rite of passage. Whether you’re graduating from that print of Starry Night you had in college, a hand-me-down painting from gramma or a discount store, or finally moving on from your blank, unadorned wall, having a signature piece of art that you really love […]

Get The Look: Building A Sophisticated Master Bedroom With A Transitional Design

Mixing and matching furniture and accessories from different styles and time periods used to be somewhat taboo, with unusual mishmashes lumped together under the label “eclectic.” These days, though, much of interior design is trending towards transitional design. Blending traditional and contemporary elements is almost a must for getting a look that feels elegant and […]

Get The Look: A Rustic Twist To Warm Up A Cottage Bathroom

Of all the many different bathroom styles out there, cottage bathrooms are easily the most common and the most iconic. Clawfoot tubs, pedestal sinks, subway and hex tile, and maybe some beadboard all combine to create what you probably think of when you think “bathroom.” But wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling white porcelain interrupted only by the occasional […]

Get the Look: The Easy Elegance of Mediterranean Style

Recently, I discussed the various virtues of sea-themed colors; teals, blues, and turquoises. The versatility of those hues in no way ends with beach and cottage style homes, and sofas are certainly not the only way to utilize them. Which brings me to another great style adjacent to those themes: Mediterranean style. Focusing in on […]

Get The Look: Thinking Big For A Sleek Contemporary Bathroom

Contemporary design is all about simplicity – minimalist lines, streamlined fixtures, and uncluttered spaces – and one of the easiest ways to get the look is to think big. Traditional design is all about fine, intricate details and small, compartmentalized spaces, but a good contemporary decor throws all that out, opting for large, unbroken surfaces […]

Get the Look: The Past and Future Flair of Transitional Living Rooms

The transitional room: an up-and-coming trend and, in my opinion, a boon to the home decor world. It is a style that gets you the best of both worlds, drawing inspiration from both traditional influences and more modern or contemporary styles. When I first discovered this was a significant, respectable trend, I breathed a sigh […]

Get the Look: Decorating a Traditional-Style Bathroom

When you hear the word traditional, it’s possible your mind jumps to other thrilling adjectives such as average, modest, maybe even boring. However, “traditional” in interior decorating is in the same category as “contemporary” and “modern”, in that it has a meaning beyond its common use. It stands for a specific set of design trends and styles. In this […]

Get The Look: A Contemporary Take On Mid-Century Modern

Midcentury modern interiors are generally characterized by big, open windows and a whole lot of wood. The goal of the style – at least when it comes to the architecture – is to create more organic indoor spaces that integrate natural materials (and even the outdoor landscape) into the home. Over the years, this timeless […]

Get The Look: Making A Small Guest Bathroom Breathtaking

Decorating a very small bathroom can be an exercise in frustration. There’s rarely room for anything but the basics, and it’s easy to expend all your creative energy just trying to find a place for all the necessary parts. That combined with a lack of natural light means that small bathrooms are a somewhat grim […]
