Update: This post originally ran April 8, 2013, but we wanted to bring it back in hopes that it would offer some home decor inspiration as we move from summer to fall!
Our senior graphic designer has one of the most gorgeous homes I’ve ever visited. It’s a brightly lit loft with tremendously high ceilings, and it’s filled with treasures she’s picked up over the years. Every piece she owns seems to have its own story; a memory that brings a smile to her face – and that’s one of the main reasons her home is such a joy to be in. Read more »
When the seasons change I always want to give my apartment a little bit of a makeover. We have a lot of lace fabric scraps and doilies lying around so I finally attempted a project I’ve been wanting to do for a while – a lace doily curtain. This is so easy to do and the end result is a beautifully delicate and completely unique curtain. Read more »

When our digital tech began working here at Free People, I discovered her food blog, a Better Happier St. Sebastian, and immediately I was obsessed. Not only are her recipes to die for, there is a simple, light, crisp, and happy quality about her photos – to the point where I can’t look away.

Today I want to take that concept one step further. Read more »
When I first came to Free People, I remember falling in love with the giant zen garden that was in the lobby. It was filled with crochet-covered rocks and tiny little trinkets, and FP girls would draw all different designs in the sand to help calm and relax their minds. Read more »
I’m always looking for new ways to use twigs and branches as décor, and today I want to share an idea that I think is just so adorable. These tabletop teepees are probably one of the easiest crafts you’ll ever make, and what I love most about them is that they’re totally customizable – there are so many different ways to make this project unique to your personal decorating style.

Old window panes make beautiful decorations. I love hanging them up on my wall because, even though they don’t actually allow you to see outside, they remind me of peering into or out of a beautiful little cottage surrounded by overgrown gardens. I recently acquired a bunch of antique window panes from a friend who works on houses, and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for me to try out some cool ways to use them. Read more »
Nature-inspired décor is a beautiful thing. It gives you a feeling of being outdoors, helping reconnect you with your roots. Last week I did a post about taking a hike in the woods, and today I want to share an idea for what to do with all the specimen you may collect while on such a hike! Read more »
As a decorator, I have a huge crush on all things birch. I love nature and I love light colors, so the fact that these trees have a natural white bark is so aesthetically appealing to me. I love bringing birch inside to offer a soft, happy, natural element to my home — and there are so many different ways to do it. Read more »
Everyone loves to add a little boho to their spaces now and again. Whether it’s a spring clean, rearranging objects, or creating lovely wall displays, décor refreshes your mind and captures a new light in the home.
