Life Meets Style: Urban Shoe Paradise

20140409-130054.jpg
While I’ve never particularly identified as a “shoe girl”, I can definitely appreciate a particularly fabulous pair of pumps, a wear-everywhere boot, or a classic sneaker–especially when they’re on display. This snap from ELLE Decor showcases ALL of the aforementioned players in a quality shoe game and expertly arranges them from floor to ceiling. A little overwhelming? Perhaps. But I, for one, am totally down with the clothing-as-decor movement that appears to be sweeping through the interior design scene. Fashion and function is an absolute must for smaller spaces…and when your footwear collection is this massive and enviable, I’m sure there’s just an innate desire to show off put your sartorial goodies on display. No shame.
What do you think of this amazing space? Do you meld fashion and function or delve into style-meets-storage solutions?

Amazing Spaces: Bohemian Dream Room

I’m a total sucker for interior design that draws inspiration from a bohemian, Moroccan, or gypsy aesthetic. Case in point: I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to just that! There’s something about those spaces that seem especially warm, inviting, and magical. From bright colors to purposely mismatched furniture, if a room looks like it’s part gypsy caravan and part bungalow, I’m totally in.A few of my favorite elements for recreating such a look? Tapestries, rattan, colorful accents, and floor seating. Pile it on. As a girl who loves stuff, another reason I appreciate this particular type of design is that it’s all about excess–never cluttered, always charmed. After all, more is more!

How do you feel about boho-inspired interior design?

Life Meets Style: Lucite Furniture

There’s something about see-through furniture that just…speaks to me. I love the contrast between classically-styled pieces and the cool edge of lucite. Not only are they super fun and stylish, but they’re so easy! Acrylic furniture fits in just about anywhere, and you’ll never have to worry about color. Another thing I’m loving? The fact that lucite’s complete and total lack of opacity really has the ability to open up a room of any size. In fact, the combination of lucite furniture and lots of mirrors would totally maximize tiny spaces–studios, 1-bedroom apartments, closets, whatever. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m so coveting a vintage-styled, lucite-fashioned chair for my next place! If you’re lusting over lucite, check out this piece from Apartment Therapy for buyables and additional inspiration.

How do you feel about lucite?
