A simple little throw blanket can really help make a space feel cozy, which is especially appealing during these colder months. Of course a burning fireplace doesn’t hurt either.
Do you have a throw that’s specific for your living/family room or do you tend to bring out regular bedroom blankets whenever you want to cozy up on the sofa to watch a movie or read a book? Is there one that you love and would recommend (like a super soft or warm one)?

Thank you everyone for all the birthday wishes!
I’ll leave you today with this beautiful room by Porter Design Company. I’m in love with those gorgeous navy lacquered walls and the color combo of blue, orange, and turquoise.
Love also that it incorporates Quadrille‘s Potalla fabric. It’s such a gorgeous pattern and works so beautifully in the space.
Have a great weekend all!

Two small tables are a great alternative to having the usual one large coffee table in the living room. Their size (and weight) makes them portable and versatile, which is perfect for accommodating the functions of a multi-use space.

Have had a love for David Hicks La Fiorentina fabric ever since first seeing it on Ruthie Sommer’s sofa featured on the cover of Domino magazine’s premire issue. Received a shipment of it in the wine/magenta colorway today and can’t wait to make them into pillows for the shop. Look out for them sometime next week!

If I was in the market for a new sofa, I’d probably look for one like this…
…an amply proportioned sofa with a deep seat, rolled arm, and tight scalloped back. Doesn’t it look comfy?
As I mentioned in my Dream Home post, Sofia Coppola’s blue one (top two images) is the Jules sofa by George Smith (as is probably some of the other sofas pictured as well). Unfortunately it’s quite pricey (I believe around $12K). The Cameron sofa from Room and Board (which can be upholstered in any fabric they have available) is a good option for getting the look for less. I’d probably replace the legs with vintagey ones to get closer to the look. If you happen to know of any other sources for getting a similar style piece at an affordable price please do share!

A great way to add visual height to a room is to maximize vertical wall space when arranging framed artwork:

Just had a chance to flip through my copy of the latest issue of C Magazine and was delighted to see featured this beautiful Hollywood Hills home. Especially loving the gorgeous outdoor living area and the living room with big windows and views of the green garden. I think they shall be the newest additions to my dream home inspiration file.

While a sofa upholstered in a solid colored fabric is the safest and usually most economical option, for those who can afford it and are feeling adventurous enough, sofas in a fun patterned fabric can make pretty fantastic statement pieces that can do a lot to add beautiful interest in a space:

Back from the lovely long weekend and dreaming about more moments spent oceanside…
How great would it to live in a beach home (if only for the summer!)? One with the casual elegance of comfy slipcovered seating, blue and white striped rugs, beautiful french doors, breathtaking views, and the sand right outside the doorstep…
The Wegner “Wishbone” chair is casual yet elegant. The curved hind legs, the semicircular top rail and the graceful y-back make it beautiful from every angle. I love that it’s not fussy or ornate and therefore has a light, almost airy quality about it.
Psst…See another chair style favorite in this previous post.
