Chinoiserie Chic :: Pagoda Decor

Chinoiserie, simply stated is a style of decoration reflecting Chinese motifs. The French term dates back to the late 18th century when it became popular to incorporate Asian motifs in traditional European decor such as housewares, furnishings and textiles. The pagoda and its ancient tiered architecture is one such iconic Chinese silhouette that’s still inspires chinoiserie chic home decor today.  This arched silhouette is being featured on everything from wallpaper to lighting, and in a variety of styles from sleek and modern to ornate and traditional. Here are a few of my favorite items inspired by pagodas.

Friday Finds

Wahoo! It’s Friday and I’m finally starting to kick this lousy cold I’ve been fighting all week. Not fun. I sure hope you’ve avoided it and are staying healthy!

On a happier note… while in the process sourcing for several clients, I spotted some stylish home decor items I thought you’d love too. As you can see, I’m still gravitating toward those gold tones, honeycomb patterns and statement pieces.

The last item pictured, a tufted linen bench, is part of Target’s new Threshold Spring 2014 Collection.  It’s simple simple, yet chic and affordable! Gotta love that.

Happy Friday,

The Gifter :: Last Minute Gift Ideas

Still have some people on your list to shop for? With only a few shopping days left until Christmas, it’s crunch time and can get downright stressful to find the perfect gift for those remaining on your list. But don’t you worry, #TheGifter is here to help! For our final mission, I’ve been asked to uncover fabulous last minute gift ideas.

When selecting gifts at the last minute, I still focus in on items that I’d purchase for myself and are of high quality, style-savvy and budget friendly. Difficult task? Not at my local HomeGoods where there’s endless variety of  high quality products at prices up to 60% less than specialty stores. With new items arriving daily, I spotted some AMAZING crunch time gift ideas for home decor lovers – sharing a few here and on Instagram!

blue & white ginger jars #thegifter

Chinoiserie ginger jars are beautiful home decor accessories and can set you back hundreds of dollars. This classic blue and white jar by a brand name designer has a luxe look without the price-tag. It makes my list for a great last minute gift for mom, your sister-in-law, or best friend.

faux croc tray in white - simplified bee

Animal patterns are all the rage in home decor, so I was drawn to this faux croc skin tray (that’s priced low enough to satisfy last week’s mission!). Fill it with homemade cookies and it makes a great last minute gift for the teachers, neighbors and co-workers on your list!

ornate round mirror from India

This ornate mirror made in India is so stunning and affordable (at $99.99 originally $200!), I had to include it as a last minute gift. It’s no stocking stuffer, but wouldn’t it make a fun surprise gift Christmas morning?

white porcelain pineapple - simplified bee

A symbol of hospitality, this chic porcelain pineapple (a super hot decor accessory!) makes a great last minute gift for the newlyweds, entertainer or home decor lover on your list.

red & white baseball storage bin #baseball

This adorable designer baseball bin is a win-win gift! Little boys will be over-the-moon because it’s so cool and parents will love it because it will help organize all those toys! Best yet, it’s half the price of a similar one I saw at a boutique.

I’d love to see your last-minute gift ideas you uncover at your nearest HomeGoods or TJX store! Simply tweet a picture of the item(s) you discover using #TheGifter and you just might win this week’s TJX $500 gift card! Wouldn’t that go a long way at HomeGoods!

Happy shopping,

Cristin
