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.

Find Find :: Curated Look with One Kings Lane

One Kings Lane // Eclectic Decor Finds

It’s not always easy to create an eclectic look. Because it’s a style that can’t be pulled from one period style, catalog or manufacture, it can take time. However there is one site that I leverage frequently for clients and personally that allows me to purchase a mix of styles – it’s One Kings Lane. All of the items used in the mood board above were pulled from current sales going on right now at One Kings Lane. That’s right. Now what are you waiting for? Go shopping!

happy curating,

cristin

Fresh, Chic Modern Decor

contemporary buffet - dining room

I was drawn to this chic dining room vignette with custom buffet with patterned nailhead, porcupine quill mirror and layered accessories while surfing for inspiration on Houzz the other day. San Francisco Bay Area designer, Laura Martin Bovard created the sleek modern look and added a fresh twist. It’s not minimalist like so many modern designs, yet has a wonderful layered, youthful and inviting feel. I think that’s why I like it so much. Here’s a peek into the other spaces Laura designed in this home:

Kelley Moore’s San Francisco Flat

I’ve mentioned before that through blogging I have met the most amazing people. One such person is Kelley Moore. Kelly’s a designer, party planner and lifestyle guru. Her amazing career has had her on the go. You may have seen her on Rachel Ray, The Nate Berkus Show or even her own show, Moore to Life in Seattle!  Recently she moved to San Francisco to be the Home and Lifestyle Anchor at Joyus. Do you remember when I participated in Joyus’ designer challenge? Through the experience Kelley and I became friends. I’m telling you, she is an amazing person. Love her!

I was thrilled to see Kelley’s new San Francisco flat that she designed so beautifully featured in Rue Magazine’s October issue. It’s a home that inviting and has a wonderfully curated feel. Kelley also brilliantly blends pattern, textures and bold color (even red). Here’s a peek at the stunning interior:
