One of my favorite ways to add interest to bookshelves or coffee table displays is to use apothecary jars and cloches (or glass bells).  Any decorative item will look so much better styled under the glass, from books, corals, seashells, collections of any kind to even the most basic household item. These jars and glass bells come in a variety of shapes with different sizes to choose from (depending on the things you wish to style under them), and some have a cute little base (wooden, metal or glass) that helps anchor your arrangement. Really pretty to look at, it is definitely worth investing in a couple of these:

Most of us shy away from decorating our homes with lots of white, be it kids or pets or the fear of having a boring, bland looking space. However, white doesn’t necessarily mean uninteresting. On the contrary, white has a unique versatility that makes it the perfect canvas for lots of possibilities. White rooms come to life with the right accessories from hardware and fabric to plants and greenery. Metals like iron and brass blend perfectly with white, while warm woods and leather create a striking contrast.

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a great spring break. We’ve been slowing down a bit this past week, which meant me taking a break from work and blogging, and enjoying more time with family and friends, and maybe eating waaay to many goodies….hmmm, but I’m back! And since you’re probably here for an actual blog post, today I’m gonna write about a (recently discovered) movie set that I would not mind having as my real home. It’s Complicated (mom, I know you’re gonna like this one 🙂 ).

When it comes to men, they always have the most stylish, well equipped and cozy ‘man caves’ (larger than life TVs, game stations, La-Z Boy recliners anyone!?!….) so why can’t women have their own personal room to get away and relax in? A couple of days ago, I was invited by Chairish, along with other bloggers, to create a style board of my ideal feminine ‘cave’ using one of their popular bar stools. And since I’m a long time fan of their awesome online marketplace (filled with one of a kind vintage goodies, furniture, jewelry, you name it….) I was more than happy to accept the challenge. So here it goes, the style board inspired by Chairish products along with my dream ‘diva cave’ must-haves:

One of the first times I got the impulse to tear out a magazine page, and keep it as inspiration for years to come, was when I saw a perfectly decorated room by designer Lynn Morgan. Bright and serene, most of her interiors combine the classic Southern elegance with fun dashes of color and modern elements.
