A House Beautiful: Decorating with Healing & Barsanti

I'm sure most of you caught this One Day make-over in House Beautiful. I fell instantly for the use of the color purple (my favorite color). After this article, I knew I had to go check out the work of HB Home. Just as I had expected...I was extremely impressed. I love the uses of color, textures and patterns. Very chic. They have locations all over the east coast and I had no idea. Now I need to rush out the door and go check out the NYC showroom. Yay. Shopping!

See my picks from their incredible portfolio...
HB Home uses incredible chinoiserie wallpapers, gorgeous inlaid bone pieces, bright peach sofas, colorful pillows with vibrant patterns, graphic curtains, oversized ottomans, and beautiful lamps. 

The Art of Living...how to decorate a fireplace

The next few days here in New York are supposed to be wildly snowy. So aside from the bevvy of blogger/magazine launch parties this week, I'd love to be bundled up next to the fireplace catching up on the online glossies. Which brought me to the question that most readers ask me... 
"how do I decorate or style my fireplace?"
I am always a huge fan of artwork above the fire, something extraordinarily beautiful to gaze at.
Mirrors work too, they open up the space and with beautiful ornate framing can be a lovely sight.
A combination of both art and mirrors can work extremely well too.
I especially love this purple room and how to use architectural elements (ie. graphic molding) to create a beautiful look with amazing style.

rooms that rock my world! my dream bedroom...

and I am absolutely in love!
The dark wall behind the plush headboard is the perfect compliment to the influx of bright light in the room. I am also enamored with beautiful + calming feminine hues of light pink and purple. It just tops the room off with a bit of elegance and romance. So dreamy, no?

tablescape tuesday {lavender glamour for the holidays}

As most of you know, I'm just crazy for purple, it is such a rich and luxurious hue. Ever since I was a little girl I wanted a lavender Christmas tree...so this post is so completely special to me. These fabulous table settings are so decadent looking, I just think purple has that effect on things. 
And here are some gorgeous purple holiday decorating ideas. I'm smitten.

Inspired! decorating for the fall

There is something very magical about Sunday mornings during fall.
Fall is arguably my favorite time of year.
For some, summertime is for romance, but for me...my romantic mood blossoms in the fall!
Sweaters come out, snuggling in ugg boots, time to get the fireplace going, football season (I am from Texas after all) and most of all the chill in the air, it's all about getting cozy!
Something about it just warms my heart.
I especially am always drawn to the colors of fall...so gorgeous.
I'm inspired to rearrange my living space when the seasons change and this season in no exception.

Deep purples, warm textures, fairy lights, and candle light dinners blend effortlessly together to create the sublime essence of the fall season...behold the magic.
hope you all were inspired...
happy sunday my amazing readers! love to you. xoxo
