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 »
Over the last couple of weeks I have been gathering cacti for my home and have fallen in love with the obscure looking plants. It is said that having a cactus in your home will help absorb negative energies and I’m all for that! I have 2 situated on my coffee table next to a geode that was given to us by a friend and one of them is placed on a little Parisian plate that I bought from a lady who lived in Maine at Brimfield’s antique market.

Usually a crush is relatively short-lived; a few short days… maybe a couple months, max. Nope. Not my crush on terrariums. These little ecosystems are beyond appealing to me. The way that life in a terrarium can carry on its existence with little or no help from the outside world is just so cool! Not to mention the fact that terrariums can be made with the prettiest of plants in the coolest of glass containers – and that they’re so easy to make (here’s our terrarium DIY, in case you haven’t seen it)! My little terrarium infatuation has led me to countless hours of terrarium-infused internet searches. If you’re like me, these photos may just help you get that terrarium fix:
We are loving the Military/Victorian trend at Free People right now. Everywhere you look you’ll see ivory vintage tops paired back to structured, rugged bottoms and jackets. Being the décor fiend that I am, I see absolutely no reason why this trend shouldn’t be incorporated into the aesthetic of your home! Here’s some inspiration for creating a décor color palette based on two important colors: army and ivory. Read more »
One of the best parts about being at a party is taking photos. Of course you can look your best, eat the most delicious food, laugh your head off, and dance until you collapse, but without photos it’s hard to truly feel how great of a time you had once the time has passed and you’re looking back on the event. Enter the photo booth backdrop. Read more »
UPDATE: This post originially ran on June 12, 2012, but now that we’re (dare I say it) in the last month of summer, we want to make sure we hit all the items on our summer to-do list before it comes to an end! This, of course, includes camping :) Read more »
For those of you who like to camp at festivals, what’s your camping setup like? I’ll tell you exactly what mine was over the weekend at Firefly: a pillow-and-blanket overload in the back of an empty minivan. I didn’t even set up my tent. I thought it was so awesome, but then I met a couple with a camping setup that trumped mine without a doubt. Read more »
Dressing your body and decorating your home are two ways to express your personal style, so it makes total sense that these two forms of style would have lots of similarities for any given person. The way I dress is girly to the extreme: I love light colors, flowy fabrics, ruffles, lace, crochet, and lots and lots of layering. Have you seen my bedroom? Same thing goes. Read more »
