If there’s one tiny thing I can do to make my space feel more beautiful it’s to add an arrangement of fresh flowers. My home doesn’t get great natural light but having fresh flowers around always seems to make my space feel brighter! Over the years I’ve styled lots of floral arrangements, from photo shoots for editorials and for my interior design portfolio to my best friends wedding and I’ve picked up lots of tips and tricks along the way. Below are some of my best flower arranging tips plus a tutorial on how I created this beautiful lovely heart …

One Kings Lane Connecticut Farmhouse

I’ve been lusting after a country house in upstate New York for ages and these days the idea is actually a realistic prospect. I spend ridiculous amounts of time looking at real estate listings and while I have yet to find my dream house, I already have ideas for how I’d like to design it. This space, which belongs to One Kings Lane president Debbie Propst, is serving up some serious country house inspiration! The vibe is warm and relaxed yet refined and is filled with a mix of modern and vintage pieces. It strikes the perfect balance between …

Cognac Leather Bed + Serene Blue Bed_3

Buttery soft leather is one of those sumptuous textures that can instantly make a room feel luxurious. I especially love the look of cognac colored leather. It’s neutral so it can pair with just about any color palette and it adds a rich and timeless quality. Here’s a peek at a bedroom I designed which features a lovely cognac leather bed. Inspired by the decor in one of my favorite brunch spots in LA, I juxtaposed the neutral leather with a beautiful aqua colored strie wallpaper by Farrow & Ball.

Cognac leather is typically seen as a more masculine …

As a designer, I’ve never been a big fan of visible electronics in a space… especially TVs. Most just feel like a big, black box of an eyesore that steals the focus from all the pretty in a room. But if you like to Netflix and chill as much as I do, they’re kind of a necessary evil.  For ages, those of us who care deeply about the aesthetics of our homes have been trying to come up with clever ways to disguise, design around or hide our TVs so that they…
Bird of Paradise Plant Indoors Interiors Decor-15

For the past several years the fiddle leaf fig tree has dominated as the go-to favorite house plant for design-obsessed folks everywhere. In fact, they’re now so ubiquitous I’d argue that they’re almost too trendy, plus,  they’re notoriously hard to keep alive. I’ve recently started using the Bird of Paradise plant to style my design projects and in my opinion, it’s a much better fiddle leaf fig tree alternative. The Bird of Paradise is equally as stylish but a lot easier to care for which gives it the edge. This plant comes in a variety of sizes and is such …

Mindy Kaling New York Apartment Home 3

There aren’t enough funny women in the spotlight but thank goodness for Mindy Kaling! Her quirky, candid, self-deprecating humor is totally relatable and serves to remind us that we’re all normal! She’s definitely girl-crush worthy but equally crush-worthy is her newly decorated NYC apartment!

Mindy collaborated with One Kings Lane to design the space which serves as her second home. With Mindy busy working on projects in LA, and her designer in New York, the collaboration happened remotely with lots of calls and emails over several months. The process went surprisingly smooth since Mindy, having grown up with an architect …
