New To The Blog… #WednesdaysMustHaves

On Wednesday’s I will be featuring trendy, must have items that will help get you the inspired look. I’ll incorporate both high-end and low-end pieces to match everyone’s budget.

This weeks trendy must have item is the steamer trunk. The steamer trunk has been around for such a long time. Most of us know them as treasure chests from all those pirate movies. Well these ancient finds are great for any type of interior space. They have become so trendy that you can find a multitude of styles that will match any decor. Steamer trunks aren’t only great as decor pieces, they’re also really good for storage. They can even be used for coffee tables and what not. If these aren’t multifunctional then I don’t know what is.

Esty.com has a ton of antique steamer trunks. My personal fave is this blue, 18″ doll trunk. Great to use on desks and in small places.

W&B x Scandinavian Interior #InspirationTuesdays

B&W Scan Inspiration Tuesday

I found this outfit on Lookbook.nu and absolutely fell in love. There’s something about wearing all white. Its daring on many different accounts. Maybe because the whole “no white after Labor Day” rule.. who knows. In this outfit she paired cropped skinnies, a white blazer and a nike tee. I’m also loving this purse – it has a paper bag kind of feel. The fur brings this outfit to a whole next level. LOVE!

The photo to the right is a Scandinavian inspired interior. The primary color is white (we all know I am obsessed with a white interior) paired with black accessories and the fur throw makes this interior the perfect match for our white and black #ootd.

What is your favorite element of this room? Do you have a favorite piece that she is wearing? Let me know in the comments below.

Hope you enjoyed the first edition of #InspirationTuesdays.

How To Style Your Small Space. pt 1

You have this small space and you don’t know what to do with it cause it is just so small. Or you live in a studio where everything from your dinning room to your bedroom, and office are all in one confined area. No one wants to feel like they’re living in a box. So I’m going to provide you with some of MY styling tips so you can feel like the Queen/King you are in your fashion inspired home.

They say white walls makes a space feel larger. It may be true but that doesn’t mean you need to avoid color like the plague to enlarge your room. If you like color, then add color! Brighter, stronger more vibrant colors will help enhance the space. Try not to use dull colors as they will bring down the mood. If bright colors aren’t your thing, use a neutral color palette.

If you decide to use a more neutral color palette or stick with the white walls, splash color around the room in other ways. Use color on furniture, accessories, throws and pillows. It will help make the room feel alive. When picking out the soft furnishings be mindful of patterns and textures as they play a part in this as well. Too much texture in a room will make the space feel smaller. Some people believe that using patterns in a small space will make it feel more enclosed. Pattern is such a big trend right now and I think experimenting with it is a good way to have a trendy space. Try using a smaller scale pattern over a larger pattern as it will help make the room appear larger.

Larger scale patterns are good to create a focal point or used as an accent. They can draw the eye to a specific piece you would like to feature. The picture below is a good example of how the large pattern on the pillow draws your eye to the chair. Focal points in small spaces like studio apartments can be a really good way to distract the eye from wondering considering everything is in one area.

One good DIY tip is to create depth in your space. Say you have a bookcase, consider painting the inside a different color. This gives the perception of depth. Another way to add depth to your walls is by painting color squares on it. It will jazz up your walls and make your room look bigger.

These are a few tips you can start with. Next post will be on spacing/layout, furniture and how to divide the area.
