It must be known that I’ve become hooked on Vogue’s 73 Questions online video series, where an interviewer rapidly asks famous people 73 questions about their lives that people wouldn’t already know. Sarah Jessica Parker was interviewed in her beautiful Manhattan townhouse, and even the magazine’s own editor-in-chief Anna Wintour was followed around her massive office to get a glimpse of her personal life. To date, however, my favorite answers to Vogue’s 73 Questions would have to be Reese Witherspoon’s. Not only was she bubbly and welcoming, but she also kept it real while serving up some sweet tea and doing backflips on her trampoline { Continue Reading }

The Ultimate Pool House

by Studio M
Feature

I've always wanted a pool house growing up. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air had the coolest one I've ever seen. It seemed like everyone had more fun at a pool house than the actual house. Watching Will Smith throw barbecue parties on the patio and then living in a room separate from the rest of the house was the ultimate "cool" factor for me. Now, my idea of what a pool house is has been … { Continue Reading }

Dark Feminine Decór

Since darker, masculine interiors are having a moment this year in interior design, I figured I’d share some of my favorite looks that have the same dark edge with a touch of feminine style. When I think about these juxtaposed dark and feminine spaces, I literally just wonder what prompted such an unusual, yet incredibly beautiful, mixed decor trend. Were the residents a husband and wife who … { Continue Reading }

Contact Paper DIY Ideas

Every now and then I find something on Pinterest that inspires me to get crafty on my own.  As a renter, there are a lot of really great ideas that I would totally want to try but can’t I’ll never actually own the place.  However, my eyes have been opened to the wonderful world of printed contact paper, making renter-friendly improvements to my apartment and furnishings entirely plausible. … { Continue Reading }

Poster Bed Perfection

Poster Bed | Bedroom Furniture | Home Decor | Interior Design

One of my most favorite looks when considering furniture for a large bedroom space would have to be a classic poster bed.  Poster beds add some visual drama to a room by creating varying heights without distracting from the room’s overall look and feel.  Unlike canopy beds, poster beds are much more enduring, style-wise since there’s no fabric to change, launder, or otherwise prevent from … { Continue Reading }

Ikea’s Paper Shop

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a slight hoarder of all things that are of the “gift” and “office supply” category. This includes wrapping paper, stationery, notebooks, binders, and thank you cards, just to name a few. Truth be told, I almost love giving gifts more than I like receiving them (almost, but not quite, obviously!) because I enjoy wrapping and surprising people … { Continue Reading }

Canyons do Lago House

Wood and water. One warms you up while the other cools things down. And when surrounded by both, they can leave an overwhelming soothing sensation. The ripples of the water splashing against the wooden docks on the lake. The wood surrounding the interiors of the comforting space. The Canyons do Lago House was imagined and realized with one purpose: … { Continue Reading }

Rosa Beltran’s Bungalow

Perhaps one of the most laid-back architectural styles ever invented has been the bungalow. While I love the layout and sense of charm that bungalows offer, I love the history more than anything else. Growing up around Seminole Heights in Tampa, there are a ton of beautiful bungalow-style houses that have been renovated and restored to their original glory. In my opinion, one of … { Continue Reading }

It’s hard to believe that it’s almost that time of year again to prepare for fall High Point Market! As someone who enjoys following the latest trends in home decor and interior design, I’m really looking forward to attending again this season. I predict that some of things we got to see this past spring will be familiar, but it’s always interesting to see which colors and decor trends become … { Continue Reading }

Quiet Home Design

by Jon Peters

The sirens at night from an emergency road down an alleyway nearby. The honking of the horns during traffic hours. The city buildings and skyscrapers echoing the cries of the living, breathing, machine that fuels our daily lives. An argument next door. A few doors slam. Another engine starts. Tires screech. A full days work. The clicking of heels against the pavement. The keys turn the lock … { Continue Reading }
