When it hits 10 o’clock my body starts to shut down and my bed starts calling my name. My bedroom is one of those places that’s important to me. It needs to be relaxing, a place for serenity and rest.

UPDATE: This post originally ran on September 13th 2012 but with the recent launch of our new UK site we wanted to bring it back! Do you agree with our list?
One of my favorite things about the UK is the music. Many of my favorite bands (including my top three favorites of all time) come from the UK. Something magic must have been in the air over there in the ‘60s, the decade that brought us Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, The Who, The Kinks, Pink Floyd, and The Beatles (among others).

UPDATE: This post originally ran on October 5th but we’re still loving branches as home decor so we thought we’d share it again!
There is something really organic and beautiful about using branches in your home décor. They bring a rustic element into the home that is perfect for this time of year. Lately we’ve been using a lot of branches in our store displays and merchandising, and I love the natural beauty it brings to our stores. Read more »
Cool tones of grey ran through the office this week, with girls wearing the color in a number of creative ways. There was not a storm in the sky when it came to these outfits. We loved how the color created a 90′s grunge feel with an over-sized sweater and black patent Dr. Martens.
When cold weather comes, with it comes an overwhelming urge to make my home as cozy as can be. There’s something about string lights that can really give off that cozy feeling, and today’s DIY uses them in the cutest way I’ve ever seen. Read more »
It’s coming to that time of year when gift giving is on your mind, and every little bit of inspiration helps. Our holiday boutiques are like little treasure troves of ideas for trinkets that might make someone smile. Our new Bazaar Treasure accessory shop has a handful of rich textures and gems that seem like they have been handpicked from around the world.
My favorite from this selection are the Moroccan Beaded Slippers, but which is yours?
We’re are excited to announce that we have launched our very own line of Free People shoes. The collection is inspired by a love of vintage designs and hand crafted details with a modern twist, using artisan leathers and materials. They suit all personalities and will add a certain uniqueness to your look. We had fun styling 3 of the boots and catching up with the designers and buyers behind the line. Read more »
