[line love] cb2 handwoven chairs

ixtapa-yellow-mint-lounge-chair-1

acapulco-black-blue-lounge-chair

figueira-swing-chair

rex-chartreuse-arm-chair-2

In New York outdoor space is limited, especially that of the private nature.  So when I saw these delightful handwoven “outdoor” pieces I immediately began mentally rearranging my apartment furniture to accommodate one. Each chair’s retro silhouette is balanced by bold color, making for a perfect little package.  Tuck one into a corner of your living room or place a set around your dining table for a nod to relaxed, laid-back living.

SHOP. Ixtapa lounge chair / Acapulco lounge chair / Figueira swing chair / Rex arm chair

[decor inspo] bull skulls

skull-green-stripe-wall

Just back from a trip to Texas, I am suddenly inspired by the rustic allure of bull skulls.  Not just for dusty ranch homes, incorporate one into an otherwise feminine space for an edgy, yet elegant upgrade.  Look for versions in gold, silver, or brass finishes for extra style points.

decor inspo : painted pad

diy-painted-furniture

Ready for a home makeover this spring? Add some color and pattern to your pad with paint.  We like bold choices like hot pink, bright yellow, and aqua blue.  Or try a graphic black and white printed look.  It’s an easy way to update tired dressers, tables, lamps, and chairs.

  If you don’t own any furniture that you’d risk painting, head to your local thrift store or flea market and hunt down a piece with potential.  Pay attention to the lines and silhouette of furniture while shopping, and remember, you’ll be covering up any spots or scratches with paint.

  Tip. Consider updating drawer pulls for a completely new look. (Try something antiqueymodern, or deco).

Get playful with chotckies like a magnifying glass and brass urchin.

Go all the way with color and a lucite table that lets a pattern rug shine.

Treat your coffee table as a shelf and pile on your library of fashion & arty reads.

Go minimal with black, white, and a splash of color.

get the look : gretchen jones’ brooklyn one bedroom

Source: Refinery29

You might remember this Project Runway winner’s alluring bohemian-rocker pieces on Season 8.  Her Brooklyn pad is filled with equally covetable items that seem to have been collected over the years, yet sit perfectly side-by-side.  Also notable is her collection of southwest-meets-modern turquoise and copper jewelry and her knack for creative storage solutions.  Need more wardrobe space?  Take a note from Ms. Jones and create a faux closet using colorful, printed curtains.  The result is a mock window/wallpaper effect that adds personality and functionality to a small space.
