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.

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?

I love the glamorous feel of this room. The soft colors, fur throw, and organized clutter make it an appealing environment. I always love anything lucite and this coffee table is fabulous! The couch, covered with pillows, looks so comfortable that I would love to kickback and relax with a magazine in the corner of this sectional. I’m not always a huge fan of sectionals, but it works well in this room. All of the elements combined make for a chic, sophisticated, and elegant room perfect for entertaining.

I also love the table in the background with the assortment of picture frames. It’s always fun to mix and match frames of different materials and sizes with pictures of family or memories from vacations.

What do you guys think of this room?

I’ve decided to start another new series, sharing with everyone some fantastic inspiration for decorating your home. It doesn’t matter if you live in a tiny studio apartment, a condo, or a two story house, you can always make it fabulous with a few touches that reflect your personality. Sometimes all it takes is a little inspiration to get your creative energies flowing and the next thing you know, you’ve become an interior designer.  I thought I would share with you all some rooms that I find to be inspiring and maybe you will love them as much as I do!

This room gives off a boho chic vibe with the meditating statues, snow leopard garden stools, navy rug, and velvet arm chairs. I’m totally crazy about the wall color, it mixes perfectly with the rosey pink in the stair railing and the matt of the painting in the top of this picture. I would definitely love to hang around in this room with friends and a few glasses of pink champagne!

I’m intrigued by the rest of the house and I really want to peek into the golden hallway in the background and make my way up those stairs to see the rest of the rooms which I’m positive are equally as fabulous! What do you guys think of this room?
