Color Crush: Aubergine + Light Blue

These two colors are seemingly disparate, but a fantastic and unique combination to use in a space (and one I especially love this time of year). I personally am not a purple girl, it’s the color I use least I’d guess, but in this case I do quite enjoy it!  I prefer a deep plummy, eggplant tone with undercurrents of red in it paired with a light blue that has a smidge of green in it (think robin’s egg).  This room below by Jeffrey Bilhuber is the exact right tones:

Trend Alert: Rattan, Wicker & Wovens

This really is not breaking news in any sort of manner, but rather a reminder that texture, especially through natural materials like rattan, wicker and wovens is an essential part of making a room feel interesting and layered.  I think a lot of people associate wicker with old lady outdoor patio furniture and rattan with boho/California style only.  But you can work these materials into any kind of room- be it modern, traditional, beachy, country or anything in between.

This new collection above by Sarah Bartholomew for Pottery Barn is chock full of woven goodness!

A Bit of Blue

There is an old design adage that all rooms need a little black in them.  I’m starting to feel that way about blue.  I mean, I’v never met a room that didn’t benefit from a little blue and white pottery!  We’re installing a house this month that we designed completely in blue and white (little sneak pics from my Insta)– from the palest light blue to dark navy and every iteration of blue in between!

Here are some fun ways to use blue in your home in either a big or tiny way.

Fashion Vs. Interiors: Spring Trends with Nordstrom

I haven’t done one of these posts in a while, but when Nordstrom reached out about partnering on a spring trends post, I thought it would be the perfect time to finally bring this kind of post back!  I went through some interiors trends and coordinated them with great items from Nordstrom that echo the sentiment- proof positive that fashion and interiors are linked arm in arm!
