I know you been spotting them on instagram and pinterest too… large tassel blankets thrown over the foot of a bed. The layered look like in this room designed by Amber Interiors is a great way to add color, pattern or texture to a bedroom. And let’s not forget how cozy an extra blanket during the winter months ahead.

Summer and stripes go hand-in-hand. From awnings to chairs, pillows to rugs you can find classic stripe patterns popping up in homes in all styles. The bedroom above designed by Alexis Manfer (as seen in Rue Magazine), features an indigo striped throw pillow tops the bed adding a pop of color and pattern to the space. Such a chic touch!

Today, I’ve rounded-up a few home decor favorites featuring stripe patterns – some traditional, some modern and all super stylish.

For sometime The Shade Store has been a go to destination for me to source window treatments for clients as well as my own home. Do you remember the beautiful Roman Shade in our master bathroom for the One Room Challenge?

To ensure quality custom window treatments, The Shade Store manages all inventory as well as every aspect of the production process. In addition, I love that all of their products are made in the USA.

The Shade Store collaborates with leading designers such as Kate Spade New York, Jonathan Adler and Jeffery Alan Marks to create fresh and relevant collections. I was thrilled to hear that recently they launched a collaboration with A-list designer, Nate Berkus. The Nate Berkus for The Shade Store Collection features five patterns for Roller Shades in neutral prints inspired by Berkus’ worldwide travels including textiles from Mexico, embroidery from Southeast Asia and printed fabrics from Europe. Some of my personal favorites are listed above. I’m loving this collection – how about you?

Decorating for Valentine’s Day

Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day? It’s okay, I do too. However, decorating for Valentine’s Day unlike Christmas or even Halloween, is more subtle. I keep it simple and don’t overdo it.

Today I’ve teamed up with the super creative folks at Minted to create a festive, yet fresh tablescape for cupid’s favorite holiday. As you’ll see – it’s not all about hearts & arrows – I’ve mixed in some none traditional prints such as the partridge table runner and modern stitch napkins to the mix – these patterns could be used year around which is a win-win. I also included red roses for a traditional touch and a double fudge chocolate cake for something sweet – a Valentine must! The bay window was the perfect place for garland & bunting to deliver a special “love you” message to family and friends.

Now… can we just talk about how darn cute the Minted classroom Valentines for kids are?

My kids selected “You’re a llama fun!” and “I like the way you roll” Valentines for their friends. So cute and I love that they are personalized. Here are a few more Valentine favorites for the kiddos from Minted:
