If I were in the vicinity of Charleston I would definitely go to this year's designer showhouse. I have been swooning over the pictures of the house on instagram and the internet.

Chic Party Ware

I'm always in for hosting a party. Whether it is a cocktail party, wine and cheese evening, or Valentine's day, it all starts with deciding on the decorations, tablesetting and party ware.

Trend: Globe Lamps

A huge home decor trend that I just love, love, love, is the renaissance of the chic globe lamp. The globe lamps were a big hit in the 1960s and 1970s and are taking over stylish interiors rapidly. They are mostly combined with brass or marble to enhance the chic style, yet they are also perfect to pair in a sleek Scandinavian style home decor. It was actually FLOS who re-introduced the globe with their IC Lights series designed by  Michael Anastassiades. Then came Bolia with a table lamp … [Read more...]
