A few weeks ago, Ken and I decided that the first space we wanted to finish during our renovation was the master bedroom.
Last fall, major designers debuted a range of purples for both tabletop and home. Any of my favorites below would make a gorgeous statement on your holiday table, sofa or bed. Pair purple with silver or gold, and say a chic farewell to 2010. Happy New Year everyone!
Bedroom needing a winter’s lift that will carry you right into spring? Check out Vera Wang’s new line of bedding, available at Bloomingdales. Super chic, and with a great mix of patterns and prints, so it looks like you culled many stores, instead of buying a set. Perfect!
Design Happens readers, we’re hooking you up with the luxurious pillows of Italy’s textile design house Dedar. Dedar’s sophisticated fabrics, wallpapers and trimmings adorn the Robuchon in Las Vegas and the Skygardens in Dubai. And their collection has been sold exclusively to the trade…until now.
While Dedar’s first retail product line of limited edition cushions is available only at Bergdorf Goodman‘s 5th Avenue store, this week two Design Happens readers have a chance to nab one of these Milan-inspired pillows.
Just answer this week’s question before 12/11c Monday, November 1 to enter.
This week’s question: What city would you model your own pillow line after?
(And to my co-workers who have set up a waiting list with the hope that these prizes will go unclaimed…your efforts are in vein!)
Does it really matter? Chicken then egg. Egg then chicken. What’s clear is that when one thinks chicken decor, what first comes to mind is country kitsch. French Country…a close second. In this week’s Style Jolt, we’ll look at fun and fabulous ways to the bring backyard chicken craze indoors without having to manage a flock. So in honor of Gonzo’s great love, Camilla, and the eight fine egg-laying ladies in my backyard…
Maybe it’s because my own handwriting resembles that of my internist. Or maybe it’s because it’s been years since I’ve received a handwritten letter. Whatever the reason, I’m enchanted over and over again by decor that incorporates scripted text. The loops and curlicues speak of romance and lost traditions. The vintage sources suggest lengthy journeys by train and by boat. And perhaps most appealing, the collages of prose and poetry, postmarks and Lepidoptera look perfect whether in a study, bedroom, sitting room or porch.
We enjoyed spending time with Emily Henderson, host of the show Secrets From a Stylist, at our design bloggers luncheon in Manhattan last week. (You can read about the 40 bloggers, including Design Happens contributors like Emily, who joined us at our New York offices here.) Before winning HGTV Design Star, Emily enjoyed a busy career as a photo-shoot stylist for top lifestyle and design publications. Now she’s even busier.
Read on to learn more about which designer has influenced Emily the most and what she finds impossible to pass up at flea markets.
This week you could win goodies from The Trina Turk Residential Collection for Peking Handicraft. The collection offers some of Turk’s most popular designs on pillows, rugs, coasters and guest towels.
We’re giving away two pairs of Trina Turk’s Santorini Pillows, and we’ve even got some colors not yet available online! For a chance to win, answer this week’s question before 12/11c, Monday, August 23.
This week’s question: What fashion designer do you want to come out with a home line?
Do you have a case of the Mondays? Wake up and welcome a new week with a refreshing jolt of style.
I was inspired by yesterday’s lazy afternoon nap to search for comfy, chic pillows. Check out these, shaped like everything from giant pebbles to social networking icons. (My favorites are the jumbo Scrabble letters.)

Bird decor is everywhere, and even I’ve given into the trend with rustic bird candle holders in my living room. Vintage bird figurines are decking bookshelves, while birdcages are becoming centerpieces and lighting accessories. Check out these outdoor-inspired bird pieces that boast classic style and a touch of innocence.
