Hampton Designer Showhouse 2015

Need a little dose of sophisticated, yet relaxed Hampton style? Take a peek into the Hampton Designer Showhouse 2015 featuring 25 top tier interior designers. Located at 233 Old Sage Harbor Road in Bridgehampton, New York the designers transformed the barn style house into a decorating masterpiece. One notable trend throughout the home was the use of the color blue. I’ve pulled a few images of the showhouse featuring the the hue that typifies coastal living.

Healthy Home :: Easy Indoor Plants

antique chest // bedroom // simplified bee #chinoiserie

As I mentioned in the Rue article, plants are an essential element of home decor. House plants bring the outside in, add a splash of color and texture, but most importantly create healthy homes.

In addition, indoor plants can even decrease stress while boosting mood, memory, concentration. A win, win, win right? But, sometimes selecting the right plant can be overwhelming so here are some simple tips to keep in mind:
