How cute this mid-century modern inspired marble coffee table with chic home decor accessories? The metallic banded vase is my fave! It’s all part of West Elm’s recently released collection for fall 2014. Scouring the globe from Peru to India, Haiti to the Philippines, this collection delivers authentic artisanal pieces to make your house a home. The most exciting part? For me it’s their introduction of over 50 collections of lighting in a wide variety of style from deco to mid-century to industrial. And as always, West Elm delivers stylish, fresh and practical home furnishings and decor that’s affordable. Here are a few other items for fall that caught my eye.

As the world’s oldest cabinetry maker founded in 1892, Poggenpohl is revered globally for its high-end European kitchen design. Poggenpohl’s minimalist lines and modern sensibility set them apart from the many traditional cabinet makers in the United States. The contemporary and dare I say transitional design is being embraced more and more by a new generation of homeowners. By delivering premium quality and a wide selection of product finishes, Poggenpohl offers 70 finishes, ranging from exotic woods to high-gloss lacquers, affordable European laminates, glass, aluminum and classic raised panel doors, allowing complete customization for each homeowner’s individual needs and tastes.

Poggenpohl’s beautiful form is equally matched by it’s high-function and innovation. I tested out these beautifully precise cabinets and drawers while at KBIS with #BlogTourVegas. They are indeed impressive on the inside and out. Poggenpohl’s new drawers and pull-outs are crafted from the finest materials and the pull-outs come with indirect LED lighting that is automatically activated when the pull-out is opened. Functional accessories, such as spice shakers and porcelain or aluminum jars allow for seamless organization and complement the light-maple or walnut wood inserts. Here are some of the impressive accessories Poggenpohl offers… get ready to swoon.

Design Crush :: Christine Dovey’s Home

Did you see Christine Dovey’s home featured last week on Style Me Pretty? Hello gorgeous. Christine, a stylist, mother of three and the voice behind the Bijou & Boheme, collaborated with interior designer, Meredith Heron (who I had the pleasure of hanging out with while in Vegas for BlogTour -love her!!!) on the project. The result is simply stunning. With a balanced mix of various period styles from mid-century modern to Art Deco, the home is all glam and all Christine.

You’ll see from some of my favorite images that Christine has embraced several current decor trends including the use of brass (hardware, lighting and furnishings), wallpaper (foyer, girl’s bedroom) and geometric patterns (textiles, rugs throughout). Love it!

Palm Springs Mid-Century Modern by Brian Dittmar

It’s that time of year we start thinking about taking a warm weather holiday. Palm Springs has been one of my favorite sun-drenched destinations. The sunny desert community has a wonderful, laid back feel I love. It’s also home to some of the best mid-century architecture and interiors around.

To put us in the mood, today we are touring a beautiful desert vacation getaway San Francisco’s Brian Dittmar designed for his Northern California clients. Fondly referred to as the “Atomic Tiki” house by Brian, it was built in 1965 in the Golf Club Estates section of South Palm Springs and has an unusual Polynesian-style roofline with mid-century interior. The result is colorful, playful and looks like a set from Mad Men. Makes me want to book a trip to Palm Springs today.

My design brief was to make carefully considered, artful and subtle changes that would refresh the interiors while keeping the residence’s original vibe through a mix of mid-century furnishings and pieces with subtle Polynesian references. – Brian Dittmar
