Trend Alert: Woven Seating

Woven seating - also known as rattan, wicker, and natural seating - is by no means a new trend,
but it's one we truly enjoyed seeing at this year's High Point market.
Get it out of your head that these natural beauties must remain on your porch!
Bring them indoors and allow them to infuse a textural, earthy tone in your current design.
Tightly woven versus loose and laid back, traditional earth tones or pops of color;
there are so many options to choose from, and here are a few more examples of woven seating at its best (with a few pics of pieces we fell in love with at High Point):

High Point Market offered up some gorgeous woven pieces we would love to take home:

What do you think? Is this a trend worth following?

This or That: Chandeliers

Chandeliers commonly adorn dining rooms, but in this day and age, we are seeing them everywhere!
These are both gorgeous and offer a unique sense of style to any space.

Which would YOU choose?
This: E.F. Chapman Paris Flea Market Chandelier
That: Thomas O'Brien Ziyi Chandelier
Here they are in a variety of spaces.
Do you think you could use both in the same home?

We sure think so!

Trendy Tuesday: Let's Get Chintzy!

The design team had an incredible trip to High Point Market in North Carolina last week!
With so much to see and so much to love, we are dying to share it all with you.
Over the next few weeks, we will be offering you an inside look at the High Point interior design trends we can't get enough of.
Let's get things started with a little bit (or a whole lot) of chintz:
1. Trompe L'Oeil Chintz Pillow in Belgian Linen
2. Nouveau Heel 3. Carven Floral Criss-Cross Dress
4. Grafton Chair Flora Dora
Quintessentially Southern, chintz has been around for ages.
Traditionally defined as a textile featuring a floral pattern against an otherwise neutral background,
there are just so many ways to make chintz chic.

Here are a few examples we saw at High Point:

Master Your Master: Dark and Dramatic or Light and Bright?

Master bedrooms are always so much fun to design!
Everyone has a unique sense of style that filters through each room in a home,
but the master bedroom is where you can really let your inner self shine.
It's your retreat. Your cozy abode. Your haven.
So, which speaks to you?
Dark and dramatic or light and bright?
Here are some incredible bedrooms in both styles to help you make up your mind:
