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.

My home office has moved to a new room in the house and needs to be updated (just need to find the time!). I’ve been searching for inspiration and I love this colorful, fresh and airy workspace I spotted in Domino Magazine. The bright artwork, colorful ikat chairs and crisp clean lines are what drew me in. If you like this style too, here’s some home office decor and similar items to help you recreate the look:

San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014 :: The Library

Although the San Francisco Decorator Showcase has closed it’s doors, I still wanted to share The Library by Geoffrey De Sousa. The San Francisco-based interior designer created a serene retreat bathed in rich neutral tones that doesn’t detract from the breathtaking views of the bay. The soothing monotone palette was inspired by the room’s Classical Revival mantelpiece. As a backdrop, hundreds of books painted in a creamy white line the dark traditional bookshelves. The faceless books add a wonderful texture to the room and are indeed thought provoking. They made me reflect on the future of printed books and how the digital age is transforming how we read books, magazines and news. Will a home’s library be a place of the past? I hope not. We all need a cozy place for quietude, intimate conversation and of course reading. Something similar to what De Sousa so beautifully created here.
