And Our Next Guest Is…
With the dawn of the new year just days away, I can’t seem to get my mind off of all the possibilities for 2021… particularly in my home. The “at-home” life seems to be staying with us for the time being, which gives me all the more reason to play around and touch up my spaces in a completely new way! I hope you’ll join me in the fun and explore fresh possibilities for your home. You deserve it!
Thanks to the Seasonal Living Magazine Virtual Luxury Designer Showhouse, this year brought so many new home brands into my life, and as a result, new friends and partners. From our group of innovative sponsors, these next three featured companies are staples for your home. Each one of them offers pieces that are showcased in every part of the house, from the dining room to the bedroom to the living room. They’ll make that home revamp you deserve an easy, painless, and most importantly, joyous experience!
Introducing… Howard Elliott
While their robust mirror collection is their signature calling card, Howard Elliott creates all kinds of dazzling home accessories and small furniture. Their fashion-forward approach is evident in their wide array of accessories, which are all things that help make a house a home. From sculptural vessels and hand-painted canvas to decadent dining tables and cozy coffee tables, there is so much to choose from. Their focus on versatility is also apparent in their slipcover headboard system. These beautifully upholstered, modern boards are easy to care for and can act as that constant breath of fresh air you want for your bedroom. All you have to do is switch out the cover on the board for a new color and texture. It’s as easy as putting on new clothes. You can change your headboard any time you change your bedding… how about that for personalization!
Jaipur Living has rugs for every type of taste and personality. Colors, textures, patterns, sizes… you want it and you’ve got it. This creates ample opportunity for how and where to style them throughout your home. Their new wool vintage looking rugs can be customized in any size, which is highly rare for that particular kind of rug. Lucky us! I personally used a Jaipur jute rug as the foundation in the Zoom Room that I created for the showhouse, styling additional rugs on top of it. I love a layered look! Their family foundation is my absolute favorite part of their brand, which works to create sustainable livelihoods for families in India. They work with over 40,000 local artisans in over 600 villages, most of whom are women and many of whom have become grassroots leaders and award-winning designers. Giving back is in the DNA of their company and the backbone of who they are.
Introducing… Nathan Anthony
At Nathan Anthony, you can customize anything to make it your own. They are a chic, contemporary company that is an incredible force to work with. Boasting high-end, beautiful quality upholstery, their pieces make any room instantly more sophisticated. Their furniture can be used in just about every room of the house, making their items adaptable and tried-and-true staples. While their collections are perfect for everyday use, they are a trade-specific resource. Your best bet is to work with them through a designer or another tradesperson, which luckily I can help with! If you’re looking for initial inspiration, their co-founder Tina Nicole’s book, Dream Design Disrupt: A Life in Design, is a great place to start.
I hope this round of sponsors inspires you as much as they inspire me. And if you’re feeling recharged and ready for a change but want a little more design advice from an inside lens, I’m always available. You can reserve some time with me by the hour for consultation, or if you’re ready to dive in immediately, you can book me for an entire room redesign. Onward and upward!
