Colder weather is at our doorstep and that means one thing… it’s time to bundle up. Cozy plaid throws are a timeless favorite. The classic pattern is a great one for the winter months. I also love that throws are super easy to use either inside or out.

Book Review :: David Hicks Scrapbooks

David Hicks // David Hicks Scrapbooks @simplifiedbee

David Hicks, the iconic English interior designer, is best known for his bold use of color and geometric pattern as well as his famous clientele including British royals. His inspiring career spanned nearly five decades – from the 1950s to the 1990s, Hicks carefully and thoughtfully chronicled his vast work and accomplishments in scrapbooks. Clips from shelter magazines featuring his designs, newspaper articles, ticket stubs and personal letters from clients were just some of the memorabilia collected in the twenty-five volumes he created.

The precious scrapbooks became his legacy and his son and interior designer, Ashley Hicks pared down over 3,000 pages to just over 300 of the best that are featured in a newly released book, David Hicks Scrapbooks by Vendome. First off, the book’s cover is a stunner – it’s coffee table worthy for sure. And as you flip through the collage style pages with drawing and handwritten notes, you get a personal glimpse into the fascinating world of David Hicks. This beautiful book is a must for any Hicks fan and a great addition to your design library.

Beautiful Staircases

beautiful staircases

How darling is this painted stairwell with chic lucite handrail? It’s in a gorgeous Cape Cod home designed by Raquel Garcia and featured in Elle Decor.  The space had me thinking beautiful staircases and how they can make such powerful architectural and design statements.

In our own home which I shared on Instagram, I added decorative cement tiles and gray paint to give a small stairwell leading to our mudroom a fresh look. Dino our Sheepadoodle puppy loves it too!

To kick off the weekend, I’ve rounded-up a variety of staircases featuring runners with bold patterns, tiles with ethic touches and handrails with artistic style. You might notice one that looks familiar too – it’s another staircase in our home that I’ve talked about before. Can you pick it out?
