Normally, I wouldn’t consider myself a fan of oddly shaped tables. (Give me a circle or a rectangle any day.) This time, however, I’m a little in love with that vivid blue octagonal choice. It makes the room sing! To get a similar look, try out the items below.
- Leisure Blue Pillow, CB2
- Colorful Dragon Pillow, Furbish
- Hot Pink Nixon Throw Blanket, Jonathan Adler
- Patterned Curtains,IKEA
- Payson Silver Tray, Pottery Barn
- Sweep Upholstered Armchair, West Elm
- Octagonal Table, eBay (it’s already painted, but a fresh coat of blue would be a good match for the inspiration room’s table)
- Shag Rug, Rugs USA

I can remember just a few years ago when everyone was throwing away, covering up, or painting things in their home that resembled gold or brass. Admittedly, I fell prey to the trend and turned my nose up at anything gold. Well, as is the way of the decorating world, gold is making a glorious comeback, and it’s more beautiful than ever.
Whether in a chandelier, picture frame, or mirror, touches of gold are popping up everywhere in today’s interiors, and I couldn’t be more head-over-heels excited about it. Not only does gold add a touch of sparkle and interest, but it gives a nod to things of the past, to tradition. It has a way of making a space look lived in and loved.
Inspired by a vignette from this gorgeous living room, I found a collection of gold mirrors to help you create this stylish look in your own home. I think a mirror is a fun and easy way to bring back the gold.
What are your thoughts about incorporating gold into your space?
