Nothing says cozy like a collection of warm fuzzy decorative pillows on a stylish sofa. It also allows you to play with a variety of patterns, colors and textures when styling you home decor. You can keep with a consistent color scheme or you can mix different colors to create a whimsical look. Whatever you choose, don’t be afraid to place a stripe by a floral or an ikat by polka dots.
I love how elegant the pillows look displayed on the sofa above. Metallics are displayed next to furs and neutral tones. Such a beautiful set up! Decorative pillows in all patterns and colors are a great way to simply add lots of personality to any space.

This sofa has a collection of jewel toned pillows in different sizes that compliment this sophisticated room perfectly. The yellow pillow also pulls from the table lamp sitting behind the sofa. It’s a very intentional detail that adds so much.

When decorating a minimalist space, you want to be careful of adding too much patterns and textures. Above we see a simple gray sofa accessorized with simple colorful pillows with hardly any patterns shown. The colors in the pillows compliment the art piece as well as some of the wooden elements.

Notice that each one of these pillows are completely different from the other and still they all brilliantly work together. Each individual pillow ties well together with at least one other pillow. Whether it’s consistent colors or complementing patterns, it’s a gorgeous collection. And it pulls out the colors in the art pieces nicely.

When it comes to modern dining rooms – everyone wants comfortable chairs. It’s something my clients always insist on. They want friends and family to stay for hours enjoying themselves and not want to leave. I know this is something I thought about when purchasing my very own dining room chairs. It’s hard when you want a certain style and some modern dining chairs can be a little uncomfortable. Nobody wants that!
Wishbone Y Natural Wood Side Chairs
There's two modern chairs that I’ve used that I can promise will keep guests hanging around well past your desired time. Two in particular are my favorites to work with – the Wishbone chair and the White Plastic chair. Both have incredible lines and can be added to just about any style of home. They mix well with other mid-century modern furniture, industrial touches and contemporary ceiling lights.They also provide a more classic look. You really can’t go wrong with these beauties.

I don't know how it happened, but over the years I've really come to enjoy nature and the idea of bringing the outdoors in to my closet and my home. Chalk it up to all the forced camping trips and Girl Scout excursions I took as a kid, but nowadays, one of the easiest ways for me to unwind is to go out to the country, have no access to digital anything, and enjoy the peace that nature brings. I can't believe I even just wrote that!
When it comes to decorating, I've similarly been drawn to the idea of bringing the outdoors in, whether that's through big doors that open up to an outdoor entertaining area, or using free form, organic shapes, like with pieces that are crafted to imitate branches. When you have a very modern aesthetic, there's something about the movement in branches that breaks up clean lines in a room, while still looking polished and interesting -- even artful.

The branch trend has been everywhere in the fashion world lately too, and funnily enough, I think I'd be more apt to use it in home design styling before I wore it on my own! For some reason, I think the look is a lot more daring when it's on your person. It's very modern tree-hugger, don't you think?

Here are some branchy inspired pieces I found for both interior and personal style. What do you think of this trend?

When styling the perfect home, few colors are as relaxing or peaceful as turquoise. It's that perfect shade of ocean-y blue that has the power to transport you to a beach in the middle of the work week, when all of your vacation days are already earmarked for the upcoming holidays. It can make you feel like you're drifting in the clear blue sky on a warm, early summer day. So why not bring a little of it into your home to experience every day?
The Cloud Sky Blue Glass Jamie Young Table Lamp looks like a beautiful piece of sea glass and features a subtly quilted texture on its base. It can make any room feel a little breezier and relaxed. When in doubt, never shy away from using a modern lamp styles for today's home, they're classic and always functional.
If glamour is your thing, look no further than Made By Girl's Chevron Ikat Teal Silver Swag Chandelier! The pretty mix of chevron and ikat patterns give any space this chandelier swings in a fun personality.
A trio of these Mason Steel Blue LBL Pendant Lights would add an instant dose of modernism to any space – think in the kitchen, down the hallway, in the bathroom. The simple design is sleek and cool. It would definitely classify as an upscale look in island pendant lighting.
The hand-blown, hand-painted recycled glass of the Envy Hand Blown Glass Decorative Cylinder is both vivid and unique. Place it on a shelf or in a corner that might otherwise go unnoticed.
One of my favorite things is when cool colors are mixed with otherwise warm materials (and vice versa). A Teal Blue Pouf Modern Roped Cotton Ottoman fits nicely into this category and this cooler October weather.
The lines of this Ceramic Gourd Teal and Tan Table Lamp are meant to mimic gently swaying coral, while the beautiful blues provide a great splash of color! Pun intended, of course.
