My Favorite Things this Month: March
Updated: Sep 22, 2022
This month has been our most busy yet! Between the nine active projects, it's been a month of stretching and pushing creative boundaries. Often people ask if I only take clients with a specific style and one of the things I love the most about my job is exploring new styles that work for my clients' lifestyles.
One client I'm currently working with is renovating a house for an Airbnb. The most fun part of a rental is the design gets to be more bold and the goal is to be memorable. On the other side, there is a fine line between bold/fun and gimmicky.
The theme we've chosen for this new space is monochromatic color schemes for each room. It's going to be chic and photo-worthy.
With so many fun projects in the works, I thought I'd share some of my favorite items I've been sourcing this month. Many of the items are playful whether through color or form. Consider this your personalized, monthly catalogue for home decor!
Green velvet headboard $800 Have you ever seen such a fun yet sophisticated headboard? This is the main element for the Airbnb primary bedroom and I cannot wait to share all the other green items it's paired with!
Marble arch $30 We all fell in love with the marble chain links that grew in popularity a couple years ago and this is another great decorative piece for any table space. It's heavy and well priced from Target.
Moon light fixture $300 This light is in my home and it's a conversation piece! It has modern lines and even the chain is substantial. We used this fixture to replace an old ceiling fan that was oddly positioned and utilized the chain to "swag" the placement.
Wooden stool $170 Does it get more cute than this stool?? It's the perfect stepping stool for the bathroom or to have on hand for any out of reach cabinets. Who says that function and beauty can't collide..
Textured pot $24 I'm always on the hunt for interesting pots and this one checks all the boxes. Reasonably priced and has that old world feel. It will instantly add charm to any plant.
Towel ring $32 Often I feel like the little details are overlooked when it comes to a room update. In a space like the bathroom, you could buy a set of hardware from Home Depot or take the extra steps to infuse personality in the small elements like the towel ring. The bigger details will catch your guest's attention initially but as they wash their hands, they will be captivated by the thoughtfulness in each design decision.
Faux fig branch $15 West Elm has the best silk stems. It's one of my favorite details to incorporate in client's decor because they can't kill it and the greenery brings so much life to the final space.
Brass canister $12 This is another great find from Target! A trick I have when it comes to sourcing decor for built-ins or console tables is to not limit myself to just the home decor section of a store. I look in the kitchen and bathroom sections as well. This canister is actually for the bathroom but is an interesting piece for any area of the house. AND the best part is decor items are typically more affordable in other areas of the store too.
Boucle armchair $400 I'm just in love with the shape and texture of this chair! It's original and cozy. Doesn't get better than that.
Navy area rug $340 This piece is going in the monochromatic Airbnb as well and I'm in love with the color saturation that still feels mature. Sometimes it's hard to get color without feeling like the rug belongs in a kids space but this rug pulls out all the stops.
These are the things that have caught my attention this month and I can't wait to see what the next month holds!
