Frozen Peach Bellini Recipe- Cheers!

It’s New Year’s Eve and with Champagne bottles being popped tonight, I figured I’d share this absolutely delicious Champagne recipe that works great as a cocktail drink after your toast or a New Years day brunch drink: side note, trade Champagne with sparkling cider for a non-alcoholic version!

Ingredients for 2 Cocktails:

1 1/2 cups Champagne

2 cups frozen sliced peaches, thawed

1 cup ice

3 tablespoons granulated sugar


Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on high until completely mixed. Serve immediately and garnish with fresh fruit. Enjoy & hope you all have a Happy New Year!

2015 Hot List Forecast

Can you believe the new year already starts tomorrow at midnight?!  With the new year on it’s way, our trendsetters looked into their crystal ball and predicted the hottest items for 2015. They consist of some of 2014’s classic best sellers, mid-century favorites that are trending all over Pinterest and blogs, and some swanky new accessories that serve as stylish and functional. You don’t want to miss this and be the last to know!


Open Spaces & Hanging Chairs

I am loving the look of this open-concept space. It has a little bit of everything mixed in, including so many classic modern pieces, yet still looks super cozy and inviting. First off, how can you ever go wrong with a hanging chair in the middle of your living room? It adds instant playfulness to the space. Paired with a vibrant, Moroccan-style rug, S-chair and ghost chairs at the classy wooden dining table, rustic bar stools along the eat-in kitchen and elegant gold pendant lighting above. Oh, and of course the super tall farmhouse ladder to pair with the exposed beams throughout the room. I love everything about this mixed-media room, don’t you?


I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas..

Although it looks like it won’t be a “White Christmas” for us on the east coast, we can still get the gorgeous glow we all love about a classic “White Christmas” by re-creating it indoors! Imagine sitting around with family & friends with a delicious hot cocoa in hand, the fireplace keeping you nice and toasty, and a calming all white room sparkling with a luminous glow. Our hand-picked “White Christmas” collection will give you that feeling all year round with a mix of warm pendant lights, dazzling white chairs, glistening white dining tables, polished white sofas and so much more! Don’t just dream it- make your White Christmas happen!


Two Is Better than One!

Sometimes, stepping away from a conventional style ends up being the better route. I came across this living room that uses two side tables as a center coffee table and think it looks super modern and upscale. It’s such an easy way to add your own touch to your space! You can mix and match multiple styles and add as many tables as you like to create a look that’s your own. What do you think of this room?


DIY Wrapping Ideas For The Holidays!

There’s nothing like a home-made touch when it comes to giving gifts. Isn’t everything a little bit sweeter and more heart-felt when you know you received something unique? With it being holiday season, most of you are wrapping your gifts. Why not make it a DIY project? You can have a bunch of fun with it and even make it a gifting party with friends!

The more accessories you add to your gifts, the better. Some materials you may want to use are: ornaments, ribbons, metallic sharpies, hemp string, bells, stamps, pine cones, rosemary, photos, etc.

Here are some of my personal favorites!




Olli & Lime!

Expecting a little one on the way but hate the traditional, overly cutesy lions, tigers and bears graphics? So did English couple Karen and Andy, when they decided to create “Olli & Lime.” Olli & Lime is all about minimalist modern design for nurseries and kids rooms and all products are made in the USA. In this line, you’ll find a monochromatic color palette with crosses, triangles, and grid prints that coordinate with all of their bedding, wall decals and pillows. It also works well with most mid-century modern furniture. Check out their entire line here!







Room of the Day!

Minimalistic, rustic, and mid-century modern, this eye-catching dining room instantly drew me in. I love the way the rose gold geometric pendant light pops in a mostly black and white room. The sleek design of all of these iconic chairs work perfectly together. I just imagine a long day running around and finally sitting down with a hot cup of tea and good conversation with a close friend. What do you think about this room?


Introducing 2015’s Color Of The Year! (Marsala)

Described as “a naturally robust and earthy wine red”, Marsala was recently named 2015’s Color Of The Year by Pantone. Like the fortified wine, Marsala’s tasteful hue embodies the richness of a fulfilling meal while its red-brown roots evoke a sophisticated, natural earthiness. It’s truly a versatile color that translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors. Dramatic yet grounding, the rich and full-bodied red-brown Marsala brings color warmth into home interiors.



Add elegance to any room by incorporating this rich and welcoming hue in accent pieces, furniture, accessories and paint. Marsala’s plush characteristics are enhanced when the color is applied to textured surfaces, making it an ideal choice for rugs and upholstered living room furniture.



Marsala has already created quite a buzz and is quickly becoming the color of choice in fashion, makeup, and home furnishings. We absolutely love the richness and versatility of it. What are your thoughts on the color of the year? Will you be incorporating it into your home?


Hang Your Coat Up For The Holidays!

With the first day of Winter just 5 days away, the coats in your space are probably piling up on every couch, chair, and bed! That’s not a good look for the holiday season, when guests will be arriving and adding to the coat clutter. Luckily, we’ve just added a bunch of great new coat racks to our site that are equally stylish and functional- some including umbrella stands to store your dripping umbrellas after those downpours! Come check them out.
