Pillow Talk

If there are two pillows in this world I feel like you should know about it’s the M Cushion Shiatsu by Jay Godfrey and Night Pillow. One is a massager that effortlessly blends in with your accent pillows thanks to their exclusive designs by designer Jay Godfrey. And the other is a memory foam pillow that offers the ultimate support and comfort on your spine and neck and multiple hair and skincare benefits because of it’s silk cover. More below on what makes these my current must haves!

Apartment Therapy

Maybe it’s the coming of a new year, but every since getting back from Australia, all I want to do is throw everything out and start from scratch with my apartment. I’m obsessing over white and just the need to make everything feel more open in my apartment. In my online bargain hunt here are a few pieces that caught my eye!

A Holiday Peak from the Jonathan Adler Showroom

To use the term ‘eye candy’ when visiting the Jonathan Adler showroom/corporate office doesn’t even begin to describe the aesthetic haven you experience. Rich tones, bold patters and incredibly accents. I was there a few months ago for their fall/holiday preview and just received their latest catalog which showcased many of the interiors I saw in the office.

Living Room Upgrade


Since James moved in with me and got a wood shop, we’ve been all about revamping our apartment. With it being summer, we updated our throw pillows and took off the radiator cover and stripped down the paint on the pipes and James built some shelves for some extra storage over it. And I ordered a massive white rug which I feel like is the last major piece I really needed to revamp my living room before focusing on painting.

Lets be honest, if I had my way, my living would look like a girly parlor room but since James shot that down, I’ve been leaning more towards a modern and open aesthetic with some vintage elements while he’s more into  a natural, woodsy/loft look — which I like as well but don’t think we have the layout for. Given that we have light floors, which neither of us are a fan of and our different wants we’ve had to compromise a bit. We’ve spent hours on Pinterest pinning any image that we both like on Pinterest (it’s the best place to get inspired and channel your creativity!) and  have a special board called Apartment Inspiration. I’m also incredibly inspired by my friend Leah, who works in interiors so I’m always asking her questions and checking out her recommendations — I mean look at her apartment… I just want her to design my entire space with her aesthetic.

This weekend we stopped by Ace Hardware to check out the paint assortment from Clark+Kensington, which is their exclusive in-store paint brand. Their website is awesome and great for getting ideas for remodeling and painting. Our current debate is if we should paint all of the walls or just do an accept wall in the back and leave the rest white.

Whats New at HomeGoods + Mindy Weiss Tips for Entertaining

20140508-210306.jpg

Now that the sun is ready to shine and spring really has spring it may be time to spruce up your apartment (and update that patio furniture). Recently, I joined HomeGoods for a tour of some of their latest spring/summer offerings all styled by Mindy Weiss. Lots of color in the mix and HomeGoods is definitely going in a more modern direction. I’m especially in love with how beautifully set the dining room table is. It’s so festive and joyous just looking at it. 

What’s New at the MoMA Design Store for Spring!

As I make way for some good ol’ fashion spring cleaning (which means a great excuse to do some spring shopping), one of the best places to shop for refresher pieces and gifts is at the MoMA Design Store — especially with Mother’s Day around the corner!  

Coffee Break with Kenneth Cole to Celebrate his New Book #30YRSBOLD

This is a Kenneth Cole Production bookIf you’ve walked by any Kenneth Cole store recently, you’ll notice in the windows large decals with the hashtag, #30YRSBOLD. That’s right, friends the brand is celebrating their 30 years of existence. And what better way to document the three decades then with a book.

Last week, I joined Kenneth Cole for a cup of extremely fancy coffee — an artist actually drew a picture of John Lennon

Touring HomeGoods with Genevieve Gorder

Ready to makeover your apt? I am — no literally, I am! Having just moved into a new space, I’ve been racking my brain over what color to paint the walls, what aesthetic I want to curate for each from. And from there I need to find the actual furniture and accents. In tandem with my recent decor struggles, HomeGoods previewed some of their home furnishing in an event hosted by HGTV’s Genevieve Gorder!

Having recently conducted a survey concluding home décor specifically impacts mood amongst Americans, HomeGoods partnered with Genevieve to create “Happy Home Resolutions” a.k.a. simple, yet cost-effective modifications to home décor that can make your home a happier place. Now if only I could buy each room on the spot, my furnishing woes would be over (I never has much luck at my local HomeGoods finding all the amazing pieces they show at these previews — although I always get some great finds). I can’t wait for the day they sell online!

UGG Celebrates 35 Years of Awesomeness

IMG_3021Last week, we boogied down with UGG Australia in celebration of their 35th Anniversary. The brand that made the classic sheepskin boot a household shoe — I mean who doesn’t own a pair? It’s like a trap. Once your feet know that kind of comfort, you’ll never go without a set in your arsenal. 

Shopping at HomeGoods…

HomeGoods

Amidst being the the process of renovating my apartment, I took a stroll through the spring/summer HomeGoods preview where tragically the display items were not for sale — otherwise my apartment may be done. I’ve always loved HomeGoods but for an item here and a great deal there. I had no idea their furniture offerings were so vast and AMAZING! From dining room chairs to throw pillows to benches… oh and the desk in that last picture is gorgeous! My only complaint was that you can’t order from HomeGoods online to which the team hinted, maybe soon. Keeping my fingers crossed!
