Style outside the box: 4 ways to add drama to the ceiling

When it’s time to revamp a space, or style a home, it’s customary to focus on the four walls that make up a room while forgetting about the “fifth wall”- the ceiling! In fact, ceilings can have a major impact on a home’s interior, much like the walls and floors.

I’m not saying that keeping the ceilings white is the wrong approach, especially because you can always add a stunning light fixture to spruce it up. However, elevating the style of any room and pushing the envelope with a little creativity can be accomplished by simply looking up!

With paint, patterns, mouldings or natural wood beams, the ceiling can become a striking statement and conversation piece at your next gathering.

Spread the love: 5 design tips to fall in love with

With the holiday of love upon us, I can reflect on the two things I love most- my family and interior design! Throughout my career, I have studied and experimented with countless design tips and techniques; and have narrowed down my favorites that work best for me.

Let me start by saying there is no secret rule book designers use. We are all creative by nature and love to imagine, explore and follow our intuition by pushing the envelope at times. We do this because we all strive to create our own design style that sets us apart from the rest.

For instance, as most of you already know, I am not a big believer in designs based on “trends” of the season. Mostly because trends come and go at a rapid pace and your home style shouldn’t. Instead, I enjoy the challenge of taking classic pieces and mixing them with modern elements to transform them into one classically current design.

Keep reading to learn a few of my favorite design tips that are easy to fall in love with.

Las Vegas Market Favorite Finds!

It’s already been a couple of weeks since the Las Vegas Market, yet I still can’t stop thinking about all the amazing designs! This action-packed weekend left me totally inspired after discovering an endless variety of fabulous new product introductions by some of my favorite partners and vendors.

This year, I had the privilege of visiting the market as a Tastemaker, where I was tasked with giving an inside look into the market, as well as tagging my favorite designs and products during the showroom tours. As soon as I began, I quickly realized narrowing down my favorites was not going to be easy because every designer, and manufacturer, brought their A-game.

However, my decision-making abilities prevailed and I was able to choose the pieces I couldn’t live without. Read on to discover all of my fab finds!

Your bathroom should say “spa” not “blah”

I don’t know about you but, after a long hectic week with the kiddos and the studio, I am dreaming of a spa day. I can hardly sit still to have my nails done, so to carve out time for a full day at the spa seems like it will never happen. So, I turned my bathroom into my own version of a relaxing spa-like space.

This is way easier than it sounds! Add a bit of seating, remove clutter, upgrade bathroom fittings and a couple of decorative touches and you can transform your own bath into a luxurious spa-like atmosphere where you can unwind and relax your mind after a chaotic week!

Not Your Basic Bookshelves

I like to think of bookshelves as a giant puzzle. How can I fit all my favorite finds into one cohesive design statement? The endless possibilities can seem overwhelming, but don’t be discouraged. If you take your time and have fun with it, you can transform boring and cluttered into a design masterpiece. Plus, I change mine all the time and even rotate items in and out seasonally!

To start you on your styling journey, here are some of my favorite items I use when styling a bookshelf!

P.S. There will be a lot of moving around of items until you get them just right, but even then, as your collection of mementos increases, you will find yourself constantly updating your shelves with ease.
