Move over brass — copper is back! This warm, rustic metallic element is trending. Whether used in sinks, lighting fixtures, hardware or home accessories, copper accents bring a sophisticated glamour to a space and are perfect paired with neutral palettes.

Vintage Chic Home Office Design

As a designer I’m always seeking out chic vintage furnishings and home decor. My go to destinations include flea markets, estate sales and craigslist. However, the process of scouring through items can be time consuming, hit or miss and downright frustrating (is it the real deal? is the seller trustworthy?).  And of course this is simply the buying side, not the selling side of vintage furnishings! But fortunately there is now Chairish, an online marketplace where design lovers can exchange gently used, pre-owned furniture and decor directly with one another. They make the whole buying, selling and shipping process a breeze. In addition, the experts at Chairish hand-select and curate the collections of items on the site, so you know you’re getting quality vintage and designer decor that is accurately represented. Love!

The folks at Chairish asked me to select a favorite rug from various styles that were provided and then create a styleboard designed around that pattern and color scheme using furnishings from their site. I selected a beautiful grass green Turkish rug as the starting point for a vintage chic home office design. The process of sourcing and searching for items on Chairish was fast and easy. I could even keep track of my favorites along the way! The result is fresh, airy and of course chic.

Holiday Front Door & Target Gift Card Giveaway

holiday front door decor // simplified bee #TargetStyle

Last week I prepped our dinner table for the holidays, but this week I’m focusing on decorating the outside of our home. The first step is to create a festive holiday front door. Dressing up the your entry for the season is a great way to greet guests dropping by for celebrations, Christmas parties and holiday visits. With help from Target, I created a traditional Christmas look for our front door. I started by flanking the black front door with red poinsettias, pinecone & berry trees and birch lantern candle holders. Every door needs a holiday decor and I selected a classic boxwood wreath. I added a traditional black and white striped ribbon and sprigs of live red berries to complete the look. As a finishing touch I selected a fresh diamond door mat. Loving the result!

From beautiful wreaths to cheerful door mats, shimmering lights to festive lanterns, Target has what you’ll need to decorate your home inside and out this holiday season. And best yet, at prices that are so affordable it won’t break the bank!
