Are you ready to win GORGEOUS (and I mean amazing) things from some of my very favorite brands? I’ve curated a stellar group of companies to work with which is why I’m so excited to announce the #12daysofgiveaways promotion this year!

Oh la la, how nice are these brands, right? The giveaways began on December 1st so run over to Instagram and comment to win – and follow each of the brands on Instagram (their IG links appear under each photo). That’s all you have to do to enter! I’ve gone a step further to Continue Reading…

Would you like to win a $500 gift card from Pottery Barn and see a Autumn dinner party that I put together to celebrate their new Ken Fulk collection? As a design writer, I come across many beautiful products yet Pottery Barn is one American retailer that I return to when seeking beautiful, approachable and quality pieces for my home. I’ve been shopping them since I was in college because they are one of the best sources for creating stunning interiors. As Autumn nears, I’m dreaming up some tabletop ideas for the gatherings that I’ll host… That is why when Pottery Barn teamed up with San Francisco-based designer Ken Fulk, I had to see what he was designing for them. This is their exclusive, first ever product collaboration so it’s a pretty big deal for Pottery Barn fans and those who love Ken Fulk because they can bring a high-end decorator’s touch to their home without breaking the bank. Here is a glimpse…
This exclusive line is so well-edited that you can mix and match without worry that items won’t work together because they all match beautifully. In addition to tabletop, you will find furniture, lighting, soft furnishings and so much more. I have my eye on the tailored bed skirt and the orange lacquer boxes because they are so chic. To show you a few items from this collection in my home, I’ve dressed my recent dinner party with the Ken Fulk painted canvas table runner, painted canvas placemats and spoon straws for our gin & tonic bar. I love the heavy deep blue/black canvas of the runner and placemats and that the off-white color that mimics sea salt – pure (not creamy) but also not pure white – And I enjoy how well they work in my very light and bright home, the contrast is just great and illustrates how well his collection works in a variety of interiors.
Known for his exuberant style, Ken Fulk is an American decorator and event designer from Virginia with a staff of nearly 50 headquartered in San Francisco, California where he lives and works. He designs for hot spots and for high profile clients which is why his collaboration with Pottery Barn is so special – it’s his signature style but available to all budgets. His signature style is a mix of European (English countryside mixed with Paris townhouse) combined with classic American Federal style so there are nods of his European Continue Reading…
I’m such a fan of Farrow & Ball and I’ve really enjoyed working with them on campaigns over the years. As most of you know, I turn away work frequently because I don’t work with just any interiors brand unless I really love and support what they do. Farrow & Ball is just a great company and they produce beautiful wallpaper and paint. Exquisite really. Half of the rooms in my home have F&B paints. I love their chalky, matte finish and gorgeous hues and that I’m not the only one in love… But that everyone who sees my home raves over the green-blue, very pale paint color in the nursery (Cabbage White) and my gorgeous gray in my dining room (Dimpse) that looks amazing against bright white trim work. Gray and blue-green paint colors are really hard to get right, as any decorator knows, so when you find a paint company that creates such perfect hues you become very brand loyal. Here are some of their patterns from previous collections…
Their wallpaper looks stunning and works perfectly with their paints. I’ve not yet used their wallpapers, but dream of someday papering a wall in my home with one – for instance the wall behind my sofa in the living room. The wall is so big, so boring, so meh. I love the large-scale patterns in the new F&B 2015 collection. All of their papers are a more modern version of the vintage papers you see in old French and English homes – oh how much I love those! Here are some views of their new collection below, hot off the press!
To celebrate the new wallpaper collection for 2015, I asked them to make one of YOU a very lucky decorator and give you 4 rolls of wallpaper (valued at over $600/540€!) so you can do a small room or a feature wall somewhere in your home. What do you think about that? Oh, yeah! Please see below for details on how you can enter to win. But first, a glimpse of their new collection…
