Vintage Chic Home Office Design

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

This past week I stumbled upon a fabulous decor blog focused on family. It was an image posted on Pinterest that drew me to Design Mom, but the touching story about the Coleman family home that had me hooked. You’ll have to visit the Design Mom blog too.

Inspired by the pair of  bedrooms in the Coleman home that would be fitting for a boy or girl, I created a gender neutral toddler bedroom. Here’s the result:

Design Board :: Modern Prince Nursery

With the world watching and amazingly just one day after the birth, Prince William and Duchess Kate emerged yesterday from the hospital to introduce their son, the tiny Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge (name announced today!). From the beginning, the couple has pushed royal traditions and now want to raise their son on their terms. So, don’t you think it’s fitting that the baby, who’s third in line to the throne should have a nursery that communicates this modern monarchy? I do, so I pulled some nursery items with modern flair, perfect for the new prince.
