By Tab Byrum

It’s hard to believe that in a month it will be Valentine’s Day, with that in mind I thought we would start taking a look at what some of our favorite vendors are offering online in the way of Valentine decor and goodies. Today we are going to start with Valentines from Pottery Barn Kids, I’m sure it’s because I’m a kid at heart but I always love the stuff their designers come up with. Their merchandise is always colorful, fun and usually has a retro feel to it. This year the Valentine products are all a great red and pink color, everything you need to throw a fun Valentine party for kids and adults, alike. Enjoy!!!

Mad For Indigo

January 10, 2018

By Tab Byrum

I’ve talked a lot on the blog about the color Blue, whether it’s Navy Blue, Tiffany Blue, Sky Blue, blue pottery, blue cabinets, you get the gist. Recently I’ve been seeing a lot about the Blue hue known as Indigo and decided to delve into it. Indigo is a deep, rich color and is one of the colors of a rainbow. Indigo is between Blue and Violet in the color spectrum and it gets its name from the Indigo Dye that is made from the plant, Indigofera Tinctoria and was first used around 1289. Today Indigo is a very popular color, both in the world of Fashion and in Interior Design, it works very well with other colors like yellow, green, gold, silver, pink and is strong enough to stand on its own. I always think of Indigo as a good pair of blue jeans. Today we are going to take a look at some uses of Indigo in design and how Indigo appears in our everyday lives, color is all around us, you just have to stop and look for it. In the coming days, we’ll look at how Indigo is used in home decor and decorating but for today just let it soak in. Enjoy!!! (above via)

Anthropologie Is Going To The Dogs

January 9, 2018

By Tab Byrum

It’s no secret I’m a dog lover, we have two at our house and have always had dogs for the 21 years we’ve been together. I was raised with a dog, when I turned 4 my aunt, uncle, and cousins gave me a black and tan dachshund puppy, I named her Sugar and we had her until the Summer after I graduated from high school. I love it when I come across great interior design merchandise that features dogs and I recently stumbled across some great stuff on the Anthropologie website. A lot of it is brightly colored, especially in the form of plates and would look great on the wall, they also have fun dishtowels as well as DOG WALLPAPER!!! Check it out with me and I’ll link to all the products underneath the photos, Enjoy!!!(above, Gien Darling Dog Cake Plate)

At Home With Jenna Lyons

January 8, 2018

By Tab Byrum

Jenna Lyons may or may not be a familiar name to you, if you are a follower of fashion and design then you probably know that she recently left J. Crew where she had served as both that companies Creative Director and President and worked there for a total of 27 years. In 2008 Lyon’s NYC home, a 5 story brownstone, appeared in Domino magazine and it immediately became the most pinned home on Pinterest, people are still talking about her yellow couches. Today Jenna Lyons is in a new space both personally and professionally, she currently has not decided what to do in her professional life but is entertaining several ideas and offers, but she has been spending time designing and decorating her beautiful 4th-floor loft in SoHo. The apartment is in a cast iron building and is 3,500 square feet, huge for NYC. The home is definitely done in the Jenna Lyon’s style, I particularly love her bedroom and bathroom. Join me for a photo tour of the home and I’ll go into more detail, I hope you enjoy this tour as much as I am. Enjoy!!! (above image via)

Marvelous Designs Of Mrs. Maisel

January 4, 2018

By Tab Byrum

I’m not a TV or movie critic but I know what I like and when I see something that’s entertaining to watch and ALSO beautiful to look at I want to share, that’s how I feel about the new Amazon series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. The show takes place in the late 1950’s in NYC and stars Rachel Brosnahan as Miriam Maisel, Midge to her friends and family. Midge is living the idyllic 1950’s housewife life, she has a gorgeous apartment in a building with a doorman, a successful husband and two children, a BOY and a GIRL. Midge’s world is turned upside and she discovers a talent for stand up comedy she didn’t realize she had. The story follows what it was like to be a woman in 1950’s America trying to climb the ladder and be successful, along the way we meet her wonderful parents played by Marin Hinkle and Tony Shaloub, they are always there for their little girl but at times she does push them to the limit. Anyway, the story is awesome but half of the entertainment value comes from the beautiful sets and the costumes worn by everyone. The series does an excellent job of portraying NYC in the 1950’s, from the clothes and decor to the cars and cabs on the street. If you love a good dramedy filled with self-deprecating humor and beautiful EVERYTHING then check out The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon TV this weekend, it’s awesome. Enjoy!!! (above via)

15 Interior Design Predictions For 2018

January 2, 2018

By Tab Byrum

I always think it’s interesting to see what “experts” say the trends will be in Interior Design and Fashion when we begin a new year, so I thought we would look at 15 predictions that recently appeared in Vogue Magazine concerning what’s HOT and what’s NOT in 2018. We are going to look at seven predictions today and eight more tomorrow. Some of these I can totally get behind and some of them caused me to roll my eyes, trends always bug me a little because I think you have to decorate your home the way you want it to be, I always tell my clients that it’s their home and they live in it so it needs to be what they like. One of the trends we’ll be talking about is a curated home as opposed to a decorated home, that’s one I can totally get behind and I’ll go into more detail later. As for now, here are seven purported trends, let me know what you think and as always, Enjoy!!! (above image via)
