Trends come and go in terms of kitchen design - from French country to a sleek modern design. There are thousands of options you can go with and sometimes it's hard to decide which is your favorite.
One that I will never get tired of is white subway tile. Whether it goes to the bottom of the cabinet or all the way up to the ceiling - this look will never go out of style. It's simple, clean and you can add any furniture or lighting to give it your own sense of style.
Luckily with a clean designed kitchen you can add in elements that represent your style – industrial lighting over the table, modern chairs at your dining room table or glam it up with a beautiful chandelier. Skies the limit!

Another way to spice it up, change the color of the grout that surrounds your subway tile, which makes a graphic statement. Now, I’d love to hear your thoughts of what you think of white subway tile in your kitchen. Yay or Nay?

We're neck deep in decorating our new apartment in New York City, but there's one room that's nearly completed: our bedroom! One of the pieces that we purchased last but has made the biggest impact are a set of mirrored storage dressers, which we placed next to each other to create one large storage unit.
At first, I was very against getting mirrored dressers, because I felt like they'd show every single finger print, and I wasn't sure if they'd feel too glam in our otherwise fairly neutral bedroom.
All that being said, I couldn't be happier! Mirrored dressers and cabinets are such a classic accent piece and can add a bit of sparkle and shine into rooms that might otherwise fall flat.
Mirrored dressers can be pricey, but I've found that the ones we ordered from Euro Style Lighting have offered great quality at a really affordable price. In fact, when recently shopping around for other mirrored storage options for a different room, check out this price difference I came across:

What does it look like when art, design and theoretical science collide? Something like these 3D printed pendant lamps by Nervous System that we recently found on Velhetica. The detail is mesmerizing:
Built using a computer program that models nature's complex process of patterning such everyday things as animal's fur or a fish's scales, these designs show an extraordinary amount of depth. A video shows the process in animated form:

With new fabrication techniques and advanced optics such as multi color LED lights, we can expect more sophisticated pendant lamp styles in the years to come.

In my interior styling courses, I always suggest that a styled space is not complete without two key things: botanicals and bling. A little greenery and a little bit of sparkle are the finishing touches that make a space truly lively.
Today, I'm sharing my favorite type of bling: brass. Brass is classy and classic, it can feel both retro and modern, sophisticated and playful--and it definitely pumps up the glam factor. Add a bit of shiny brass in the form of a desk lamp, ceiling lamp or side-table to your space and it will automatically add a touch of chic to your room.
