I go through phases every once in a while when I get really sick of my apartment, and that’s when I know it’s time for some redecorating. It tends to happen around the turn of the season, which makes sense. As the weather and our wardrobes are changing, spring’s pastel palette and neon summer hues are replaced by rustic, muted shades and cozy textures. For my home, though, I want to bring some green indoors so that I can still enjoy it once the leaves fall from the trees. Here’s some of my current home décor inspiration!
Do you ever dream of being a nomad? I think it’s something that crosses all of our minds at one point or another. Traveling from place to place with no destination in sight; living in a beat up caravan that’s covered in beautiful tapestries inside and overflowing with little trinkets you’ve collected along the way. It just seems so free. Read more »

Of all the décor crushes I have, vintage glass might just be number one. Every time I enter a thrift store (AKA every few days), the first thing I do is make a beeline to the glass section.

Doing yoga at home rules. Of course it’s awesome to practice in a studio with a class to motivate you and a skilled instructor to make sure you’re reaching your potential, but there’s something so relaxing about being able to just unwind and set yourself free in a space you can call your own.

We’re closing in on the first week of September and that means that it’s time to start embracing fall full-force! If you’re not already in the mood for fall, let me give you a little nudge: red, orange, and yellow leaves falling gracefully to the ground in the light, cool breeze. Skinny jeans with thick, cozy socks; light jackets; and scarves thrown loosely around your neck. Read more »
I love having an eclectic kitchen. When I buy plates, bowls, glasses, and silverware, I usually only buy one of each piece (which is easy enough if you’re getting it all from a thrift store!) – I love being able to mix everything up, with no two pieces the same. Read more »
I always look forward to the change in seasons when new displays go up in our stores. Every time, they take my breath away and provide so much inspiration for unique home décor. Our fall displays this year remind me of an enchanted forest with twinkling lights, trees climbing towards the ceilings, shimmering leaves and splashes of magical watercolor. Read more »
Update: This post originally ran on May 26, 2012, but with the season winding down, we wanted to share some inspiration for decorating your end-of-summer parties with one easy element: string lights.
It is absolutely amazing what a string of lights can do. Immediately a so-so space can be transformed into a dreamy, whimsical wonderland. Read more »

Last week we had the pleasure of visiting the (gorgeous) home of Philadelphia-based interior designer Phoebe Schuh of PS & Daughters. What I love most about Phoebe’s home is that it’s so much more than pretty things carefully arranged in pretty ways. Read more »
