Acclaimed Italian architect and designer, Paola Navone unvieled her new Out of India line for Anthropologie in NYC this past weekend. Inspired by her time spent in India, the line features vibrant colors and bold layered pattern designs including bed linens, furniture, suitcases, lighting and accessories. Navone says the line is, “an unbelievable melting pot of colors that happily embrace each and every object”. Here are a few of my favorite pieces from the collection, but make sure to see this exclusive collection for yourself.
Its the FINAL COUNTDOWN!
Everyone I know is talking about the return of the Bluth family May 26th on Netflix. After 10 years we can only imagine what huge mistakes they’ve made in their lives. Housebeautiful.com has a fantastic interview with set decorator Jennifer Lukehart about how she was able to recreate the family’s penthouse, the model home, and a few new locations for the comeback season.
Lukehart incorporated some of the shows running jokes in the decor. Lucille Austero’s Art Deco apartment (above) features a statue of a seal with a ball on its nose!
She also has some tips and tricks, I mean illusions, from the screen that can work in your home. Such as using a lampshape in a color other than white to prevent a distracting glow.
I also just love her positive spin on turning a decorating challenge into a way to expand your field of creativity (they had to recreate the family’s penthouse in just two weeks!) Grab a frozen banana and check out the full interview and more pictures of the set at Housebeautiful.com.
Putting together a color palette for your new home can be so intimidating ( ok, fine, flat out terrifying for the most indecisive of us.)
The editors of Country Living magazine have outdone themselves! All the best decorating, storage and DIY advice from the magazine have been compiled into their new book, The Little Book of Big Decorating ideas. It’s almost like a Pinterest page you can carry around with you without the annoying broken links! They even have a simple and concise appendix in the back for the how-to features.
From afternoon projects – like how to show off souvenirs from last years beach vacay, to weekend warrior overhauls – like using varnished craft paper as wallpaper, the projects inspire endless ideas for your home. There’s also an entire section for turning your lawn and garden into beautiful, easy to manage haven instead of a distracting chore.
This June, when you pick up the book, make sure you have time to swing by the local hardware and craft store as well, because you will definitely want to have supplies ready when the inspiration from these pages hit you!
