Recently, I’ve been searching for an ottoman for one of my projects and came across some beautiful examples on incorporating one in your own home.

I love using ottomans every chance I get for both interiors + exteriors — they have great versatility. You can use them as a coffee table, kick back and prop your feet up, or as extra seating.

Have a great Tuesday!

If you’re looking to add a pop of color or that little something that will give your dining room new life, consider adding two wingback chairs. Not only are they incredibly comfortable but they also add a wonderful layer of interest.

Some of my favorite wingback chairs on the market….

1. Anthropologie | 2.  Ethan Allen | 3.  Restoration Hardware

 

If you are working with a tight space, you can use any upholstered chair (as in the photo below). The idea is just to add a bit of interest and in this case, something comfortable as well.

Good to Know…

Make sure that you know the height of your table before purchasing, as well as double-check durability of the fabric — especially if you have kids or pets 🙂

Have a great Thursday!

And, although this Olive & Eucalyptus wreath could hang on any door year round, it’s perfect for the holidays.

Do you have an area in your garden that is just missing a little something special? A focal point to make that corner or walkway a little more interesting? By adding a piece of pottery to that area, you’ve not only created a more interesting space but also added beauty & texture. Below are some of my favorite examples.

If I’ve convinced you and you’re ready to add a piece of gorgeous pottery to your garden, I would visit your local nursery or antique store for that perfect piece. Two other resources I really like for pottery are Restoration Hardware & Eye of The Day.

A neutral yet pretty palette overall but once everything is brought together and you include a brightly colored throw and some greenery, it becomes a beautiful space.

Happy Decorating!

I absolutely love hardware! Whether it’s house numbers, door knockers, kitchen pulls or the powder room towel hook, they all help give your home a sense of style. Here are some of my favorites!

Places to search for some amazing hardware are AnthropologieTerrain, & Michael Healy, as well as eBay, Etsy, flea markets, and local estate sales.

I absolutely love the gardens in Provence! When I visited this region 5 years ago, I (like so many) fell in absolute love with this part of France including its gardens & slower pace of life. The beauty, simplicity, sophistication and disregard for contemporary ingenuity was genius to me. The effortless style drew me in and I tried to take notes of everything that appealed to me. I particularly loved the areas in the gardens in which they ate/entertained.  The materials were so simple — an old farm table, rustic chairs and simple plantings all made up that certain feel that is so desirable for so many of us. Therefore, while remembering my Provencal vacation, I thought I would put together some simple tips on how we could create our own little South of France right in our own backyards.

I realize that many of us don’t have an incredible old farm-house to back our dining table up to, or the amazing Mediterranean weather, but that doesn’t mean we can’t obtain “the look” in our own backyard. It’s relatively easy — all you need is some space and a couple of items.

Step 1, Select the area in your yard/garden where you are going to add this little Provencal nook — preferably a shady part of your garden.

Step 2, Add gravel

There are many types of gravel but the gravel usually used in Provence is similar to our ‘Pea’ gravel.

(Click here, for a how-to video, from This Old House, on installing a gravel pathway (same steps apply when doing a larger area) & click here for other examples of gravel patios from houzz.com)

Tip 3, Add a table and chairs

A place to sit and sip on a glass of Rose and enjoy a late lunch is always nice. I like a simple picnic table and benches but it can be really anything. Places, like Restoration Hardware, Ikea and Pottery Barn offer some type of “farm” table. If you don’t want to wait years to get an aged look, try Craig’s list for a used (weathered) teak or picnic table.

Step 4, Plunk down a couple of shrubs

Of course, plants like Lavender and Rosemary are well know Provencal plants but there are tons more. Plants like Pittosporum, roses, salvias, and certain citrus are popular as well. If you don’t get full sun in your garden, or live in an area that doesn’t allow for you to grow Mediterranean plants then try plants that are similar. It’s really about working with the climate you are living in and using similar shapes and textures to Mediterranean plants. Also, these gardens tend to keep the plant list simple — using only several varieties of plants. Too many varieties and it becomes more of an English cottage garden. Your local nursery should give you the best advice on which plants would be comparable.

Tip 5, Add a large piece of pottery (or 2)

Pottery adds a certain sculptural element, as well as a sense of history . (Restoration Hardware has some gorgeous ones at the moment)

unnamed-6

Tip 6, sip on a glass of Ricard or Rose and enjoy!

Of course, we all know it’s not really what you put outside but what you do with it — how you live in your space. Even if you only have a simple courtyard or balcony, the main thing is to take time with friends and family, pour a glass of wine (or cup of coffee) and just enjoy the moment.

Cheers!
