Five Steps To Ace Dorm Room Decor

When Lacoste asked me to work with them on styling a dorm room around their new bedding collection, I jumped at the chance! Why? Well, I’ve not had the opportunity to style any dorm room decor since I was at college myself over a decade ago, so I relished the chance to create a dorm room that was youthful yet stylish, while also being attainable. I love how the space came together and thought it would be useful to break the space down into five key steps so it’s easy to recreate. OK, let’s do it! 1. Start with statement bedding When it comes to styling dorm room decor it’s best to start by turning your attention to the main design real estate in the space. In almost all cases this will be the bed because, well, let’s face it dorm rooms don’t offer space for any other major pieces of furniture. Start by dressing the bed in a set of statement bedding, like this graphic yellow, blue and gray stripe design by Lacoste. It’s part of a brand new bedding collection that’s exclusive to Bed Bath & Beyond (much of what you see here is from BB&B, too!). This […]

David Hockney Inspired Interior Design

// Shop the look: fig.1 | fig.2 | fig.3 | fig.4 | fig.5 As a color lover, David Hockney’s work never fails to inspire. His use of color has inspired me from everything from fashion to decor, leading me to color palettes I couldn’t even have dreamed of if it wasn’t for his saturated works. David Hockney’s new retrospective at the Tate Britain has me itching to grab my passport, jump on a flight to London and soak up some color inspiration through the twelve(!) rooms that are showing his art. From aqua blues to coral pinks and everything in between, Hockney’s classic hues are guaranteed to brighten up the darkest of February days – and as it’s been overcast and wet for much of this week in New York City I felt it couldn’t be more fitting to feature some David Hockney inspired interior design! The Kairos Collective have a series of lighting, accessories soft furnishings and furniture that are perfect for inviting a splash of David Hockney inspired interior design into your home. From the spectrum of hues seen in the shell beach rug to the use of graphic color and shape in the indigo two pillow, these […]

Six of The Best Colorful Couch Designs

Remember the cover of my first book? It featured one of my favorite London apartments and the yellow couch that graced the cover was a hit well beyond the four walls of my home! Even though the book came out almost four years ago, I still get emails from readers asking me where it’s from. So it’s safe to say that colorful couch designs are still super popular! The great thing about colorful couch designs is that they don’t have to be shockingly bright (although that works too!), but can be quietly colorful and still add a punch of personality to a room. I just bought a pastel pink couch for the living room of my New York City apartment (expect a room tour very soon!) and it inspired me to do my latest six of the best round up on colorful couch designs that would work for a variety of design tastes. You name it, from modern to traditional and club to classic, there’s a colorful couch for you! Let me know which is your favorite? Do you have a colorful couch at home that you love? Check out the details on each of the six and where to […]

10 Scenes From The Weekend

It felt like spring finally arrived in New York City this past weekend. The blue sky was boundless; the first blossom buds started to open; sidewalks felt wider as stores removed their winter wind and snow blockers; restaurants opened their doors and placed tables out front; and the parks were alive with chatter and play. In many ways it felt like the city had awoken from its long winter slumber. And it felt good. Real good. My heart mate and I spent most of the weekend outdoors. We cleaned our apartment, worked out and then jumped on Citi Bikes to cycle across the city. Here are ten things that made me smile over the weekend… 1. Catching the East River Ferry from Manhattan to Brooklyn for the first time this season. It’s my favorite way to move between the boroughs – just look at that skyline view! Nine more highlights after the jump! 2. The beautiful spring weather called for a suitably spring-y outfit, so I paired my new botanical garden chinos with this millennial pink sweatshirt. The sweater actually matches the sofa in my living room – take the tour!3. Speaking of pretty pinks…I loved seeing the first blossoms […]

Ravishing Rattan: IKEA Stockholm 2017

I’m wholeheartedly dedicated to being an IKEA geek. Like, so much so that I bought three books about the company and their design history to read when I was in the store last week. Remember this infographic I shared with unexpected IKEA stats back in 2013? And then there was the time I went behind the scenes of the IKEA catalog photo studio, too. Fascinating! Many may turn their nose up at the Swedish megastore but I’ve long championed the store. I appreciate how my relationship with the brand and it’s furniture has endured through the various stages of my life to date. Sure, I look back on the tiny bookcases and chests of drawers I bought for my university bedroom knowing I would never buy those pieces now. Yet, they served the exact purpose I needed back then. Since then, I’ve gone onto include many pieces of IKEA furniture in my various apartments, both in London and New York City, and they’ve always served me well. Not only that, but they often are the pieces that garner the most compliments and visitors are shocked to discover that they are from IKEA. I think it’s a common misconception that they […]

My Story So Far: Reflecting On The Last Decade

My 30th birthday is fast approaching (March 14th!) and it’s kind of snuck up on me. The last three years of my life have been a whirlwind of major work and personal moments, from publishing my books to getting married, and then emigrating to another country. So, it was only as we entered 2017 that I realized this year signals the start of a new decade for me. As with any milestone birthday I’ve started to reflect upon what’s next, so I took the last few weeks to think back over my twenties – what went great, what didn’t go so well and how I hope to grow and improve in the next decade. Here’s the thing. Over the past month I’ve realized that I’ve never felt better than right here and now: I’m confident in who I am; I’m finally recognizing it’s OK to be proud of my achievements; I’m more aware than ever of my shortcomings and what I can do to be a better person – both for myself and those in my life; and I’m comfortable in the state of my relationships with my loved ones. Yet, it’s not always been that way. I think because […]

Carl Hansen NYC Showroom Tour

Those stylish Danes sure know how to make me smile when it comes to design. So, naturally, I was thrilled to learn that Carl Hansen & Son have opened their second showroom right here in New York City. Following on from their SoHo space, the brand have now headed into the Flatiron district for their new Carl Hansen NYC showroom. I love that the Danish brand decided to forgo the traditional approach to a showroom, opting instead to create an inspirational, loft-like apartment rather than a traditional showroom. Stuffy showrooms begone – I’m all about more informal environments when it comes to design! After all, you want your home to feel relaxing and personal, not buttoned up and formal, right? So, in my mind, the experience of shopping and designing your space should mirror that, too. Join me in taking a tour through the ‘apartment’ after the jump! Aside from being one of Scandinavia’s best-known brands, I’ve long admired Carl Hansen because they are the company behind some of the greatest furniture classics in Danish design history. From the classic furniture craftsmanship by Hans J. Wegner to modern classics from Ole Wanscher, Frits Henningsen and Kaare Klint, right through...
