You may remember my post back in November about how I was working with Capel Rugs on a new collection of rugs. Well….the collection has arrived! This collection includes new COCOCOZY textiles and designs with a modern twist. There are a total of four rug patterns included: Cobblestone, Escape, Happy Day, and Pulse. We even added a few more color and pattern options!

For those of you who don’t know Capel Rugs, they are a textiles company based in North Carolina and they are one of the biggest rugs companies in the world. I was really excited when they asked me to design some new textiles again for their collection and I hope you love them as much as I do. I’ve included a few photos of the new collection below. These rugs are available in North Carolina from Spotlight stores and internationally from Capel Rugs.

Did you know Brooklyn is larger than Manhattan? In fact, it’s three times bigger than Manhattan. I just learned this and my mind is blown. Speaking of Brooklyn, interior designer Jenna Chused renovated her spacious Brooklyn apartment. She’s the designer behind the firm Chused & Co. Her apartment is elegant and full of natural light. Her design style is unique, which is why I thought I share it with all of you.

One of the stand-out rooms in this spacious Brooklyn apartment is the kitchen. What initially looks like another white kitchen is actually incredibly unique. Chused mixes textures and color palettes that you don’t normally see in a NY kitchen.

Hopefully one of my picks will help inspire you! Shop Mother’s Day gifts for a mom in your life (or even yourself).

On my Instagram, I recently talked about redecorating my outdoor courtyard. I always host dinner parties for friends and family. I love to freshen up the space to give people something to talk about. I’m not doing any drastic changes. My plan is to keep it simple just by swapping out a few plants and accessories.

One of the challenges when it comes to decorating an outdoor space is making sure your outdoor decor is cohesive with your interior decor. It’s important to maintain the flow of your home from indoor to outdoor. Outdoor accessories are an easy trick to make your home look like a professionally styled home. It’s all about the placement of your decor!

There’s a resurgence of 1970s style. And I’m not talking about shag carpets. Bold colored furniture and earthy tones are trending again in 2022. I guess the pandemic has caused everyone to incorporate more color into their homes. That’s not a bad thing. I’ve seen more textured fabrics and geometric shapes in home decor. If you’re not into the minimalism trend, then try going for a sophisticated 1970s looks with a dark green sofa and wood textures. I’ve rounded up 20 sofa’s to that will help bring the 1970s to your living room.

When you see the phrase “country charm” what does it mean to you? Do you think of a humble farmhouse? Or a rustic cottage? This Nashville home is full of country charm, but not in the way you might think. Country singer, Kasey Musgraves, gave the world a look inside her Nashville sanctuary.  This minimalistic home feels like it belongs in Los Angeles. However, if you take a closer look at the details, you will notice hints of country charm.

The photo above is Musgraves’ go-to room for creative inspiration. The blush tone living room has velvet built-in seating. She added vintage French cocktail tables to contrast the pink hue. You can also see a photo of her mother hanging in the corner.

This holiday weekend snuck up on me. I went through my archives to find some spring table inspiration. I was trying to decide what I should do for the weekend. Do I want to do something vibrant or stick to a neutral color palette? Then, I remembered this tablescape (shown above) that I loved! It’s elegant but has a pop of blue so it’s not too simple. It’s the perfect setting for my outdoor table. Take a look at some other finds that I selected below for tablescape inspiration for Easter, Passover, Ramadan, or any other holiday you might be celebrating this season.

This gorgeous Spanish colonial home belongs to one of my friends. I snapped a photo while I was walking around outside. I fell in love with the archways around the perimeter of the porch. Archways have become popular in architecture again. The trend kicked off in 2021 due to its beauty and function in home design. However, archways date back to ancient Rome. The most popular style of arch shape is the Roman arch. It’s classic and uses a semicircular design that will help enhance any room inside or outside your home.  There are different styles of archways like flat, round, segmental, three-pointed, and so many more. Below are a round-up of some beautiful archways and doorways that enhance interiors.

Last weekend I went to visit the Descanso Gardens in Southern California. There’s no better time to visit the gardens than during the spring season. Every month they have different flowers in full bloom. This month’s flowers are lilacs, azaleas, camellias, wildflowers, irises, native plants, and wisteria.

Today’s blog post is inspired by the flowers I saw throughout the gardens. So I wanted to do a blog post with a floral twist. I rounded up my favorite nooks that feature floral wallpapers, decor, and accessories.

A galley kitchen is one of the most functional layouts in a home. It’s easy to get around due to the open aisle down the center. This particular kitchen has been in my archives for a while. Interior designer, Jane Gowers, remodeled her charming London home. One design element that I love is the doors that allow direct access to the terrace. It’s great for entertaining guests. It lightens up the green hues, which gives it a charming atmosphere.
