Get the Look: a Bold Octagonal Table

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.

  1. Leisure Blue Pillow, CB2
  2. Colorful Dragon Pillow, Furbish
  3. Hot Pink Nixon Throw Blanket, Jonathan Adler
  4. Patterned Curtains,IKEA
  5. Payson Silver Tray, Pottery Barn
  6. Sweep Upholstered Armchair, West Elm
  7. Octagonal Table, eBay (it’s already painted, but a fresh coat of blue would be a good match for the inspiration room’s table)
  8. Shag Rug, Rugs USA

Pin it. Get it!: Gold Mirrors


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.

Happy Decorating!
