  • High/Low Design: Ghost Chair Trend

    • 0 Comments

    Ghost Chair Trend

    One could dub the ghost chair as a 'trend,' but I think with its versatility and clean design, ghost chairs are more deserving of the title 'classic.' They mix well with a number of different design aesthetics, especially since their transparent nature lends itself well to pairings with heavier furnishings.

    Small Spaces

    The only problem? Ghost chairs can be notoriously expensive. Luckily, ESL has you covered and currently offers ghost chairs at a fraction of the price of other major retailers. Take a look -- can you spot the differences between this high/low?

  • Get the Look: Modern Kitchen Island Barstools

    • 0 Comments

    Modern Kitchen Design

    Your kitchen always ends up being the gathering place in a home – whether you’re hosting a party or just hanging out with the family. Because of this, it’s time for everyone to spice up your modern kitchen island with some chic barstools. Some people go for comfort; for others, they only care about looks.

    Then you have to think about the design of your modern barstools... It doesn’t matter what style your home is – industrial, mid-century modern, traditional or minimalist – there is something for everyone’s kitchen island.

    Industrial Barstool

    Zuo Marius Red Bar Chair

    Your kitchen will look all spruced up for a small price. Think of the modern barstool as kitchen jewelry. Today, I’ve pulled together three different looks for you, each one I love for a different reason.

    I’m partial to the industrial look (above). This bright version is the perfect pop of color to bring into your kitchen.

    Black Barstool

    Orson Black Leatherette Metal Modern Bar Stools

    This Orson bar stool has a back. If you treat the counter as a place for chatting while cooking, a high-back stool will be more comfortable.

    Transparent Barstool

    Anime Modern Transparent Acrylic Stackable Zuo Bar Stool

    If you want your barstools to kind of disappear from a distance, acrylic is definitely the way to go.

    I hope this helped and you find your ideal barstool!

    Interior DecorCheeky and fun, that's what Ms. Light & Airy is all about! The rising temperatures have her ecstatic to freshen up her space and her wardrobe, like with this Floral Sheath Dress from A-Thread.
    Modern Ceiling Fan

    A few of these Cosmo Mirrored Candle Wall Sconces placed strategically along her hallway or in the bath make everything feel bigger with their reflective surfaces, whether or not the candles are lit. Ms. Light & Airy has this Cirrus Gloss White Ceiling Fan in her living room to keep the space feeling fresh, it's clean lines and white finish help it almost disappear against a white ceiling!

    Modern Blue Table Lamp

    Placing this Hand-Blown blue Bubble Glass Table Lamp in her entryway or at the end of a hall not only helps subtly offer some color, it also manages to be a statement accessory without feeling big and heavy. The materials of the Eileen Grey Chrome and Glass Accent Table keep it feeling just like Ms. Light & Airy, bright and clean. It would feel equally at home next to a chair in the living room or as a bedside table.

    Modern Side Chair

    A set of these wide, comfy Zuo Whitworth Chrome White Modern Accent Chairs would help to make a little reading nook feel much bigger than it actually is. Ms. Light & Airy loves the open form and clean lines!

  • Of Monsters And Men: Living Room Design

     Album Cover

    Of Monsters And Men is group of five daydreamers from Iceland whose dreams actually came true!  Their music is uplifting and creates that perfect sound that makes you want to run around and sing at the top of your lungs!  With Coachella Music Festival coming up this weekend, they are one of the many bands I am excited to see!  I'm sure you all have heard their #1 song Little Talks off their latest album My Head Is An Animal and you can watch the video below just in case you're not sure!

     
    If you were to translate this song into a living room design, it would be modern and eclectic. You would find brass lamps, seashell side tables, driftwood consoles, and of course some modern binoculars! It's all about exploration and discovery and the amazing times you spent running around as a child discovering nature from a innocent perspective.

Olivia Polygon Shell Accent Table 6. Contemporary Large Steampunk Jamie Young Table 7. Frameo Driftwood Console Table 8.Of Monsters And Men Merchandise

    The collection of objects seem as if you found them on the beach, in the mountains, or forest during your childhood discoveries and is mixed with current modern elements. A simple modern sofa is a great grounding element for eclectic design and allows the shape and texture of the other elements to stand out like sculptural art. The feeling is rich like the instruments behind the smooth voice of lead singer Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir in Of Monster And Men.

     Inspirational Quote

    These lyrics are perfect and I hope if you get the chance to check them out at Coachella you do.  And most importantly, I hope you get to play outside like when you were young, full of life and full of love!

    Smooth and comfortable. Crisp and clean. Accented here and there. Ms. Feminine & Polished is all that and more!

    Contemporary look, geometric base, polished metal. This Geometric Tempered Glass End Table is the perfect shape and size to migrate from room to room when our girl wants to try something new and mix things up.

    Modern Lighting

    Lighting doesn't get much more feminine and polished than the White Billowing Cloud Possini Euro Pendant Chandelier! Curved panels, diffused light, sigh. It makes quite the stunning statement in her entry or over the dining table.

    Ms. Feminine & Polished likes her rooms well-lit with a little sparkle, and this Hammered Metal Cylinder Silver Leaf Table Lamp fits the bill perfectly. Its shimmering tapered base reflects all of the lovely light the lamp casts.

    Stylish Lighting Trends

    The Antique Brass Halogen Double Pharmacy Holtkoetter Floor Lamp offers a special touch for a favorite nook in her home. Contemporary and stylish, the adjustable arms are dimmable to create quite the mood.

    Our Ms. Feminine & Polished knows that the outdoors are an extension of her space, and lighting is equally important! A few of these sleek Tao Steel Modern Troy Outdoor Wall Lights give her porch and patio a glow like no other, while the frosted rippled glass gives a touch of ladylike class.
