I’ve always been a bit of a book worm. Once I get started reading a good book, I find it hard to put down. There have been many nights when I’m curled on the couch, totally enthralled by a book when I look up and realize I should have been asleep hours ago. One day I dream of having a personal library with floor to ceiling book shelves, a gigantic fireplace, and over-sized cozy chairs for reading. (A girl can dream, right?)

There is something about this modern living room that just screams to be lived in. I can already feel that fluffy rug under my toes (wouldn’t mind walking around on this or this either) and I would love to lounge on one of these sofas with a glass of red wine and a good book. This simple, stream-lined, and sophisticated room is not just perfect for getting lost in the pages of a book, but it also has plenty of seating and room for entertaining guests.

 

Make this room your own by shopping some of the items below.

Let Your Doormat Do The Talking

I hate to say it, but first impressions really matter. That is one reason why I really love fashion, because your clothes can speak for you. Without saying a word you can let people know a little bit about you simply by dressing to express yourself. But first impressions don’t just come from your outfit; your house can also give a first impression (more specifically, your doormat). It’s one of the first things people see when they come to your house, yet it’s often overlooked when people begin to decorate their home. Don’t forget that little doormat, because this small change can make all the difference in the world. Get inspired by some of my favorite doormats below.

Trending: Copper in the home

 

I’ve always been a big fan of any type of metallic home decor. Silver and gold seem so glamorous and chic. Lately another color has been catching my eye; Copper. Whether it’s in the kitchen, bathroom, office, or outdoors I believe the right copper piece can really increase the appeal of any space. Copper has been trending recently and can be found in the most well designed homes.

Try the trend on your own with something as simple as copper pots or candle sticks or go a little bolder with lighting or seating.

Bedrooms are such a personal thing and that’s the very reason why they can be so much fun to decorate. The room becomes your comfort and your safe haven so it’s important to show a little of your personality in the way you design your bedroom. I love the way this one juxtaposes the feminine and bright floral bedding against the rustic brick wall. A brick wall is always a great back drop in home decor, but the print on this wall adds a little extra pizazz and the dress figure in the corner is tres chic. What’s your favorite part of this room? Tell me in the comments below!

Happy Halloween, everyone!

The colors associated with this time of year are often deeper and darker than the bright pastels of spring or golden yellows and aquatic blues of summer. (Think of the black and orange of Halloween). That’s why when I came across this brightly colored room a few weeks ago, it really caught my eye.

This adorable, sunny dining area is so cheerful it brings a smile to my face every time I look at the picture. The bright colors mixed with the stark white are so fantastic. I imagine that dinner conversations are more fun in a little nook like this one. Plus, I’m always crazy about a wall covered in a collage of art. There is so much to look at in this room and it would certainly be perfect for a fun, casual night entertaining friends.

In the same way that a pop of pink can be a great look for an outfit, adding touches of pink to any room can make the room feel fun, vibrant, and welcoming. I was first drawn to this room for the sofa, but I also love the shelving in the background. The book shelves look organized but usable, with the wicker baskets lining the bottom for storage and to conceal the less organized items. I’m also crazy about those black and gold lamps! They are a great shape and height!

What do you guys think of this room? Would you want to decorate your home office in this style?
