If you haven’t already, you NEED to check out the newly launched online mag Domaine. The latest from the Who What Wear gals, their sister shelter site is beaming with inspiring decor, celebrity home tours, and DIY tips. This West Hollywood two bedroom, home to actress and designer Katie Nehra, is one of my faves. I’m having a bit of a color moment and am loving the pops of bright pink, turquoise, and red. Definitely worth a read!
I’ve been a huge fan of Angie Hranowsky for quite a while. A master of relaxed contemporary interiors, the designer’s work has been popping up in shelter magazines galore, including this month’s issue of Lonny. Plus, she’s a Charleston local–which means she must be super cool!

Leave it to Michelle Adams, Lonny’s Editor in Chief, to bring big style to a 475 square foot space in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Her use of black, white, ivory and gold with splashes of color and graphic prints is such a great way to keep everything cohesive (a must in a small space) but still interesting. Take a gander.
Love, love, love!
Good things come to those who wait–this I’ve learned. I definitely stalked these chevron dhurries when they were first featured on HSN a few years back (the black and ivory in particular). Turns out they’re now INSANELY discounted! As in, as low as….drum roll, please…$24 for the runner, $44 for a 5×7, and $144 for an 8×10. Oh and the 2×3 is a whopping $10. Sooo glad I didn’t pull the trigger then!
With such a neutral design and color palette, these babies could go just about anywhere. Why not give your floors some love?
Totally digging all the gold hardware and accents popping up everywhere, especially when paired with white or carerra marble like these gorgeous pedestal sinks at the Greenwich Hotel!
How sweet are these gold leaf coffee tables?! Love, love, love the hairpin legs… Would be great in a small space or to strike a balance with, or lighten up, heavier pieces
Or how about this fun starburst/sea urchin statue?
Such a fabulous compliment to black and white!
I’m always a sucker for tips on decorating small spaces–a likely product of living in them my entire adult life. As per usual, the editors at Lonny nailed it with this NYC apartment makeover featured in last month’s issue. Take a gander…
The mix of textures from acrylic and metal to leather and fur really makes the neutral color palette work. Architectural details like the ornate fireplace and ceiling tiles don’t hurt either. I’m really digging that leather chaise too.
The bulk of the furnishings came from Restoration Hardware‘s Big Style Small Spaces Collection. While RH is usually pretty pricey, a lot of the items were surprisingly reasonable. I particularly love the light fixture.
I’ve never thought of displaying handbags on the wall but it really livens up the space while doubling as storage–score! And this bedroom… it’s airy and feminine but not fussy. The mix of delicate textures in the mongolian fur pillow and the sheepskin rug really soften the all-white minimalist theme.
Emerald Green! An emerging favorite in fashion and decor, this lush jewel tone is popping up everywhere. Whether it’s a fabulous pair of trousers (hello, fancy pants) or a stunning evening dress, emerald tones add a luxe feel to a tired winter wardrobe.
How cute are these trousers on Blair Eadie? For a similar look, try J.Crew’s Cafe Capri in Jade Jacquard. Emerald is also a striking color for evening–I mean just look at this Gucci stunner worn by Natasha Poly at Cannes!
If you’re still hunting for the perfect holiday party dress, do check out this Shoshanna sequin shift. I’m obsessed–so much so that I actually just ordered it for an upcoming event from Rent the Runway (my first RTR experience). I’ll let you know how it works out!
As a color of nature, emerald shades also transcend pretty seamlessly into the home. Case in point, Peter Dunham’s fiddle fig leaf is slowly becoming as prevalent and versatile as ikat.
I’ve also been obsessed with this malachite pillow from society social. Mixed with a black and white palette, this print would really make an impact.
And how about this hollywood regency style interior featured in Lonny…
Loving the malachite rug and wallpaper paired with black, white and leopard. Can you say green with envy!
I literally stalk Society Social weekly for new arrivals. The faux bamboo collection is pretty amazing, right?
