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.

Bold & Bright :: Miami Beach Apartment Tour

Recently House Beautiful toured the colorful Miami Beach apartment of interior designer, Robert Passal (loved his master bedroom for the Hampton Designer Showhouse in 2012). The mix of modern and traditional used throughout is a personal fave as well as the classic blue and white color palette that flows in both indoors and out. Passal is a master at combining pattern, texture and color. Take a look and I think you’ll agree!

To get just the right watery effect, he even paints the door in a bright blue car paint. What? yep.

Love the combo of pattern and color in this image. The Louis XVI–style chair upholstered in an African batik fabric looks amazing paired with the stunning swirl painting by Henrique Oliveira.

Love the clean, modern lines in the kitchen and the pops of bright color.

Passal mixes artwork and accessories beautifully here in the apartment’s entry and creates a fun, unexpected work area. The modern Tom Dixon chair is a personal fave!

In this bedroom, Passal covers the walls in a traditional blue and white toile, features an elegant blue velvet bed and adds a fun green accent with bed linens.

In the bathroom, square marble tiles cover both the walls and floor. Love the painting hung above the tub. So daring!

In the master bedroom, matchstick blinds are layered with ceiling to floor panel drapery in Quadrille’s Nomad pattern. They frame the sliding door beautifully.

Covered in gorgeous shimmery blue fabric, this powder room is a head turner.

And last, but not least, the outdoor patio which features traditional teak seating with blue and white cushions. It’s paired with a modern white Saarinen table by Knoll. Love!

I’m also thrilled to be over at Erin’s House of Turquoise today talking about my playroom + guest bedroom design project. More beautiful bright color!

happy decorating,

New Traditional Interior Design by Courtney Giles

This weekend I caught up on reading some of my favorite shelter magazines. There was one house tour featured in Atlanta Homes and Lifestyle that caught my eye. Atlanta-based Interior Designer, Courtney Giles transformed the historic 1911 four bedroom house for a young couple. Sticking with a neutral palette for the most part, Giles’ design blends traditional elements with fresh , modern accents – it’s what I refer to as new traditional interior design. The result is inviting, elegant and current.

Love this black and white paneled pocket door, brass elements and chinoiserie wallpaper!

The chinoiserie wallpaper in the powder room is dramatic and bold, but a fun choice for this small space.

New Year’s Woodland Chic Tabletop by Aerin

Perhaps its the fact that I grew up surrounded by pine trees in Lake Tahoe that draws me to this woodland chic table setting by Aerin Lauder (yep, the granddaughter of the legendary Estée Lauder). Quentessence shared a sneak peek of Aerin’s New Year’s luncheon tabletop that will be featured this January/February issue of Veranda and I loved it so much, I wanted to share with you too.
