A curated assortment of coffee table books can give a space individuality and style. Pick beautiful books that reflect the interests of you and the others living in your home for an affordable expression of the uniqueness of YOU! STYLED is one of our all time favorites. Not only is it beautiful on the outside, it’s chock full of tips and tricks on how to make your home look and feel FABULOUS!!

2) A Few Good {faux} Sheepskins

Texture and Layers are imperative to good design! Sheepskins can be used so many ways and in so many styles of decor. Get a few and try them out- rotate them around when you want to refresh your decor! I love to throw them over chairs- dining chairs, desk chairs, not too many- just one here or there adds to that “collected” feel. The best part is, these are under $20 each and soooo soft and cozy!

3) Your Signature Scent, Dahling

A signature scent for your home is one of those extra special touches that speak volumes to your guests! Better yet, YOU will be happier. It’s an affordable luxury so find one that works for your vibe and your budget and watch the effects it has on your mood. This is what we always have in the house- it’s the one Anthropologie is always burning and- really nothing makes us happier than Anthro;)

Let There Be LIGHT

Standard overhead lighting can be a little unforgiving and take away from vibe of a room. A strategically placed lamp or two provides options to light your space depending on time of day and how you’re using the room.

The Land of the Living!

If you don’t have a “green thumb” or are rarely home, this can be a hard pill to swallow, but plants are an essential these days. The right plant adds life, color, texture, style and cleans the air you breathe! We love Snake Plants or Mother-in-law’s Tongue. They are super easy to take care of (a little water once a week) and look AMAZING! So go getcha a few fun planters (isn’t this guy great?!) and watch your space instantly come ALIVE!!

Flamingo Drive: Staging Project

I have had so much fun this month working with realtor Jason Kaczmarski and his client Garrett on staging a sweet little bungalow on ….wait for it…FLAMINGO DRIVE!!  I wanted to buy it just so I could say I live on Flamingo Drive.  The buyer will be listing this property on Airbnb so watch out for that- and some of the best furnishings are even staying in the home- like that amazing vintage bar cart!! Meanwhile, enjoy some of the professional shots by our awesome photog, Isabelle!!
