Retro-style furniture and home decor are trending for summer. That includes art deco, wicker furniture, and vibrant color palettes inspired by nature. Retro style can easily be mixed and matched with contemporary decor. It’s about elevating your personal style by adding nostalgia and pieces influenced by the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s. If you’re over your contemporary home decor, then get inspired by a round-up of retro-style furniture.
Victor Glemaud, a Haitian American fashion designer, released a collaboration with Schumacher. Glemaud’s collection is called Cul-de-sac, which is inspired by his Caribbean heritage and his family. It features 14 different patterns and colors. After studying at the Fashion Institute of Technology, he worked at Paco Rabanne and Tommy Hilfiger prior to launching his own company.
One of the fabrics I want to highlight from the new collection is the Toussaint toile. Toile became popular in the late eighteenth century. It originated in Ireland but became a popular decor accent in Britain and France. Glemaud’s collection pays homage specifically to Toussaint Louverture, a Haitian general and leader of the Haitian Revolution. The fabric also includes foliage and landscapes inspired by the country.
This beautiful staircase lives in the historic building where I stayed in Paris. The building is located in Le Marais, a neighborhood full of shops and restaurants. There are many hidden gems and historic buildings. If you love architecture like me, then I highly recommend visiting for inspiration. Paris is decorated with stone and natural items.
Le Marais means “swamp” in French for those who don’t know. It’s not really a charming name until you learn the neighborhood’s history. During the seventeenth century, it was a swamp area that formed the eastern border of the city. As time went on, it evolved into one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Paris. See 12 neutral items inspired by my trip to Paris below.
Vanities can make or break a bathroom. That’s a bold statement to make but think about it. When you walk into a powder room or a primary bathroom your eyes go right to the vanity. It’s where you go to do your morning makeup routine and the last place you go before going to bed. The cabinetry, the finishes, and the type of sink are all different factors that create a beautiful design. The perfect vanity will set the tone for the bathroom. I rounded up 6 bathrooms to help inspire you.

The photo above is the bathroom I designed from the COCOCOZY Design House Series. We used a TOTO sink and faucet. I wanted a clean bathroom design, but it needed a little character. So I added hexagon floor tiles and subway wall tiles with black grout. It enhanced the space!
