I, like most Creatives, find the need to constantly be changing it up.  I don’t know if it’s the fact that we need actual change, or that we need to create the change, but regardless we need it.  For me, one of those places were I need this change is in my decor.  And while it’s too costly and time consuming to always be switching up paint, furniture, or kitchen cabinets (oh how I wish I could change my kitchen cabinets) one place I can always easily, and inexpensively, change are the accents that really make a house a home.    

So with an itch for change I knew I had to scratch I headed to one of my favorite places to find one of my favorite designers, and a few good pieces.  Nate Berkus for Targets’ spring line does not disappoint.  It’s chalked full of natural woods, bright whites, and boho inspired accents to mix and match.  Each piece feels collected and has a light, relaxed airiness to it that just screams of California vibes.  

I began with my favorite place to always change; my coffee table.  I traded my faux python for Nate’s ceramic hand wrought white and blue tray (which would be an amazing serving piece as well), filled the etched ceramic pedestal bowl with snacks, cut some fresh eucalyptus for the textured glass vase, and finished it off with two decorative pyramids.

I had to snag Nate’s triangle throw since there are few things I love as much as a good blanket and this one is perfect for both my couch or an afternoon in the park.  And the wood and resin inlay tray is my new go-to for schlepping coffee, water, more coffee, and any of my other morning necessities to and fro.

Lastly, in my office I finally corralled the overwhelming stack of magazines by placing them in Nate’s Hyacinth Water Basket, and continued the work on my #shelfie.  I added a second etched ceramic pedestal bowl to store my wine corks (I loved it so much I had to have two), a fabulous little bird tea light, and the gold bird dish to display my shells and sea glass I’ve collected over numerous trips to the beach.  I’ve also  got my eye on this globe light which would make a welcome #shelfie or possible bar cart addition. 

All in all I’d say by adding just a few new pieces the rooms received quite the breath of fresh California air.  Now only if we could get that warm California weather!  Truly, MKR

The “X Bench” Style It Challenge

Late last year I was asked by one of my favorite designers, Julianne Taylor, to participate in a little “X Bench Style It Challenge.”  The rules were simple; 5 bloggers/designers would customize her most popular TBH X Bench and style it in any room, and in any way they see fit.  The customized X Benches and room reveals would then go up on One Kings Lane’s site for two weeks where individuals would be able to see how each blogger/designer styled the bench in their home and could buy one (or two or three) of the benches for themselves.  And at the end of the two weeks a winner would be crowned and awarded a Room Refresh courtesy of TBH and OKL.  So now that you know the rules, let me tell you a little bit more about my X Benches. 

When it came to designing my benches I’m not one to really play it safe so I knew I wanted to do something a bit more on the bold side.  I had been eyeing Cotton & Quill’s foo dog fabric for some time now, and if you’ve ever seen a peek into my home you’d know I have a thing for foo dogs and anything blue.  While it may seem like a somewhat wilder choice in fabrics, don’t let a print ever scare you.  Mixing prints and patterns is one of my absolute favorite ways to decorate.  When done right it adds interest and a personal touch to any room, and if you’re scared of mixing it up just follow my golden rule; mix within the same color family.  And just remember these benches will be a staple in your home for years to come but that doesn’t mean you have to live with your fabric choice forever.  You can always have them re-upholstered and let them evolve with you and your decorating choices.

Another reason I adore benches in general is because of how versatile they are.  A good bench can be used as an extra seat, a foot rest, or an end table and these benches in particular are the absolute perfect size.  Not too big, not too small.  In fact I’ve moved them into several different spaces within my home and while you see them styled here in my living room I think they may end up actually living in the entry way.  How perfect would they be for a seat to throw on your heels before going out or to drop your bag and everything else you need on a daily basis?  Who knows though, that’s why I love decorating, it’s always changing.  

So tell me, are you feeling our bold benches?  Happy Friday Loves!  Truly, MKR

Recently I was asked to share what makes my house a home.  Is it the people I share it with?  My cozy corner where I curl up with a good book?  The weekly fresh flowers on my coffee table?  Cookies baking in the oven each Sunday?  The cozy blanket I wrap myself in each night?  Or the fragrance I’m greeted with when I walk in the door?  The truth is it’s all of those simple pleasures and so much more, that make my house my home. 

I may have captured my feelings in pictures while Air Wick ® captured theirs perfectly in video, and now we want to know what home means to you?  Simply post a photo of something that helps make your house a home on Instagram, Twitter, or the Air Wick US Facebook page and tag it with both #HomeIsInTheAir #Sweeps.  You’ll then be entered for a chance to win $500 towards a room makeover, and new Life Scents™ fragrances.  It’s that easy.  

Because “…your home isn’t just four walls, it’s the sum of everything you put into it.  It’s what’s there, in the air, when you’ve made your house a home.” So tell me loves, what do your four walls mean to you?  Truly, MKR

Earlier this week while everyone was preparing to hunker down for Juno I got to take a little journey and escape (at least in theory) to warmer days ahead and play with Lacefield Design’s new outdoor pillow collection.

Making it’s big debut during January and February buying season, Lacefield’s “weather friendly” pillows are bright, bold, and full of solid and print designs you can easily mix and match.  Constructed with Sunbrella weather resistant solid fabrics the Lacefield design team translated hand painted artwork into digital prints such as my favorite the watercolor leopard and bamboo trellis complete with tassels.  You know how I love a good tassel!  And while I adore every colorway (honestly I love every color) you’ll find a mix of the surf blue and melon orange on my patio this coming spring.

Since this is just a sneak peek you’ll have to wait a tad longer to start planning for warmer weather as the pillows won’t be available online until mid February and in retailers (including yours truly), early March.  But I have to say, while I’ve been a fan of Lacefield’s for years now, they have truly outdone themselves by creating a collection not defined by “indoor” or “outdoor,” instead defined by simply beautiful design.  So, who’s ready for spring?  Truly, MKR

Ohhh the hunt.  You either love it, or hate it.  Truthfully up until a few years ago I hated the hunt.  All the waiting, the searching, the haggling for just the right piece that will fit perfectly in just that one right little space.  But over the past few years I’ve begun to love the hunt.  For me searching for something vintage or antique provides the perfect unexpected mix in my home, or my client’s home.  And while I’m no expert at finding all things antique I am getting better, and when all else fails I just trust my gut.  If it works for you, then it works.  So I thought I’d share my favorite online, and not so online, antique haunts and you tell me do you love the hunt?  Truly, MKR

My Top Ten…One Kings Lane  OKL is my go to for everything things home, new and old, but their vintage selection is always well curated and well priced.  ||  1st Dibs  1st Dibs is the Rolls Royace of antiques.  Designers and curators alike spill all their secret sources to 1st Dibs.  If you can’t find what you’re looking for here, you likely won’t find it.  ||  Chairish  A mix between OKL and Craigs List Chairish allows designers and tastemakers to list their own pieces (both new and old) to sell and even allows you to haggle on price.  ||  Etsy  While it’s harder to verify if something is actually vintage or authentic on Etsy, it’s still worth the look.  ||  Bobo Intriguing Objects  This is an Atlanta gem, and one I’ve been shopping at for the past for years.  Unfortunately it’s only open to designers and retailers, so grab your designer friends and make an appointment.  Though market is always the best time to shop as inventory is highest.  ||  Scott Antique Market  An Atlanta and Ohio MUST, Scott’s rolls into town one weekend each month and trust me, it will take the entire weekend to get through everything.  Get there on Thursday for the best finds.  ||  Deconet  For the 20th century modern furniture lovers, this is your global marketplace.  ||  Furnishly  Furnishly’s team curates sales from all over the marketplace to allow much less searching.  ||  Lushpad  The best site for all things modern.  ||  Live Auctioneers  another online bidding site, similar to e-Bay, though this one has a fantastic app so you never have to miss out on your find.

How To: Laundry Room Organization

Laundry Room Organization, Waiting on Martha. Rustic White Photography Laundry Room Organization, Waiting on Martha. Rustic White Photography Laundry Room Organization, Waiting on Martha. Rustic White Photography Laundry Room Organization, Waiting on Martha. Rustic White Photography

The final organizational challenge to tackle was the laundry room.  My laundry room is tiny.  Truly, you can’t even turn around in it tiny.  So keeping it organized and clutter free while maximizing what little space I have was of the utmost importance.

First, I traded out my two old hampers for Pottery Barn’s Perry Divided hamper.  It fit perfectly in the space and allows me to presort darks and colors.  Plus the canvas liner can be removed and thrown in with the wash for easy cleaning.  

Second, baskets came to the rescue again.  I placed the larger wire Benchwright baskets above my cabinets to hold my Costco-sized amount of paper towels and blankets that are out of season.  While the Newport basket housed detergents, iron, steamer, dryer balls and all other necessities.

Lastly, I hung my vacuum on the wall (best vacumn ever by the way), added a few extra door hooks and a retractable clothes line to hang any pieces of clothing I many not want to dry.  In the end the laundry room became clutter free and a functional small space.  Truly, MKR

P.S.  Make sure to check out how I organized the linen closet and gave the master bath a mini makeover.

The linen closet is one of my home’s biggest organizational downfalls.  And what’s worse it’s located in the guest bathroom which means there’s no hiding the chaos.  So with my mini bathroom makeover complete it was time to tackle the linen closet.

Break out the baskets. Baskets are the fastest way to keep your linen closet organized, towels folded and bedding from falling off the shelves. I chose a combination of woven and wire, the wire for holding items I use frequently and like to see like bath and beach towels.  And larger woven baskets for bedding and smaller woven baskets for cleaning supplies, bathroom necessities and everything you need to cure a cough or bandage a wound.  

Label, label, label. Baskets may be one of my favorite ways to organize, but sometimes it’s hard to see what they’re holding.  An easy solution is to group similar items together in each basket and label with a handwritten tag.  The tags provide that extra dose of OCD pretty and I even added a few that say “help yourself” so guests feel at ease when grabbing a towel or toothbrush.

And it really is as easy as that.  I’d love to know, do you use baskets to organize any spaces in your home?  Truly, MKR

How To: Bathroom Organization

My bathroom is one of the spaces I spend the most time in, and it’s also a space that’s a cluttered hot-mess.  And with a New Year upon us what better time than now to organize, de-clutter, simplify, and transform my bathroom into the sanctuary I dream of and need.  So with a free weekend, and a little help from Pottery Barn I set out to give my master bath a mini makeover.
 
First, I had to focus on corralling the clutter.  Like most of us I had beauty products rolling around in drawers, thrown in bags under the sink, and piling up on my counter.  For an easy solution I turned everyday glass vessels into catchalls for beauty products, soaking salts, sea sponges and everything else I use on a daily basis.  Plus they’re a gorgeous way to display all my favorite products, like the ESPA essentials I recently snagged from my day at the The Spa at Mndarin Oriental, Atlanta…so good.  
 
Second, everything needed to be functional.  For example, I love a good soak, but I never have my bath necessities within reaching distance when I need them.  The Grant Floor Storage quickly solved that problem by allowing a movable system to store water, candles, and all the bubbles I need to relax.  Plus the Grant’s arms allow a way to keep my bag off the floor and hang a hand towel or two.  For towels I utilized the Benchwright basket in the corner of my bathtub, rolling the towels rather than folding, and threw in a few bottles of my favorite sparkling water.   
 
Lastly, I needed an easy way to store and move laundry from the bathroom to the laundry room.  Pottery Barn’s chrome portable hamper was an easy, and chic solution.  And I love that the removable liner allows you to throw it right in with the laundry making sure your space stays as clean as can be.  
 
The only challenge left?  To see how long I can keep the bathroom looking this way.  Truly, MKR
 
P.S. I’ll be tackling my linen closets and laundry room this week as well so stay tuned!

I don’t know how we’re at week 6 of the One Room Challenge, time seems to have literally flown.  Looking back I also don’t know how I was able to actually pull this all off, and while the room isn’t 100% complete (which you’ll read about below) I must say I couldn’t be happier with how everything has turned out.  

If you remember when deciding to remodel my office the two most important things where to lighten up the space and make it more functional for myself and my growing team.  I kept the oh-so popular Thibaut Tanzania wallpaper, my giant silver chandy, and horned sconces, but everything else went out the door.  To lighten up the space I got rid of all the black and brought in modern crisp whites and warm maple woods which not only made the space immediately feel light and bright, but also much bigger which is always a plus.  Staying true to Martha’s signature colors I anchored the room with pops of orange, mango and all shades of blue plus metallic accents of gold and silver.  I mixed it all up with modern and traditional pieces giving it a more collected and eclectic feel.

When it came to functionality my old space only had one very large desk and because I can have anywhere from 1-3 team members with me on any given day I knew I wanted to add a table.  I’ve adored the Knoll table for years and now I had the perfect opportunity to add it to my arsenal, but the Knoll is made to order and wouldn’t make my tight turnaround.  However, I wanted to show the space finished so I subbed in an Ikea table while I patiently await the Knoll.  An Oomph Tini Table provides a catch all for keys, phones, and any personal affects plus its the perfect table for cocktails.  And the traditional jute rug balances out the modern touches and brings warmth to the stark white and clear acrylic ghost chairs, plus it defines the space allowing this area to not get lost in the room itself.   

I moved my Blu Dot Strut desk directly in front of the window because while the enormous silver chandy is gorgeous it doesn’t put out a lot of light so the more natural light I can utilize the better.  I also chose to face away from the window enabling me to converse with my team rather than have my back to everyone the entire day.  For my desktop I wanted to keep it clutter free so because the Blu Dot Strut doesn’t have drawers I added a rolling file cabinet from Ikea plus a second Oomph Tini Table which houses a few desk necessities.  I laid a sheepskin rug underneath allowing my feet to have a soft and cozy place to rest, plus it provides the perfect spot for Addison to cuddle up on.  Lastly, my custom drapes I agonized over for weeks turned out to be the centerpiece of the room.  Going forward I don’t think I’ll ever do a drape without a pop of color (preferably a velvet color) again!

The Modloft Pearl Bookcase, while beautiful, needed to fulfill its purpose as an actual shelf which is why you’ll find Shop products, styling props, and art sprinkled amongst my personal items.  The Pearl is also home to my latest, and quite possibly current favorite, Marshall Stanmore Speaker (worth every penny my friends).  On a side note another Pearl bookcase is on its way so the entire wall will be shelving, and when she arrives I plan on sharing a step-by-step #shelfie styling story so stay tuned (say that five times fast).  

Lastly, I replaced my black book shelves with two maple consoles from Ikea that have doors allowing me to store Shop products without feeling like a hoarder.  Instead of styling the consoles I chose to leave them simple and clean, but flanked the sides with two media towers to house my never ending book collection.

Well I think that about sums it all up, though I’m sure I’m forgetting something…oh yeah, what do you think of my new space?!  Truly, MKR

One Room Challenge…Week 5

Waiting On Martha's Office Waiting On  Martha's Office Waiting On Martha's Office Waiting On Martha's Office, Drapery Detail

Oh week five, how did you get here so fast?  This ORC week was filled with high highs, my drapes are in and they are fabulous, and low lows, furniture delays…major furniture delays.  But lets focus on the highs first.  The drapes were installed at 10:00 pm last night and I couldn’t be more in love.  The mango-peach velvet pop of color is what dreams are made of and the tassels, well everything is better with a tassel.  They completely softened the room and elevated my office’s overall look plus they’re the perfect compliment to my modern Thibaut Tanzania wallpaper and horned sconces.  Drapes, done and done.

The second big progression this week was my AllModern Blu Dot Strut Desk which I’m equally loving.  The simple white desk is the perfect size and doesn’t distract from everything else going on.  However, because the desk doesn’t have drawers I did need to purchase a small rolling file cabinet from Ikea.  Also to keep my desktop clutter free I flanked the desk with my favorite Tini Table from Oomph to hold a few necessities.  And on a total side note I’ll be working with Oomph soon to create an exclusive, limited edition Tini Table so if you have any colors or shapes you’re dying to see please holler at me below in the comments!

Okay the bad-I-don’t-think-we’re-going-to-make-deadline-news.  A few of the major pieces of furniture, specifically my table and other shelf has been delayed.  The Knoll Tables are custom made and it looks like we’re a week or so out.  I only have myself and my procrastination to blame.  So next week at the final reveal, we may only get a partial reveal and have to take the ORC to week seven.  Chalk it up to the joys of design!  Truly, MKR
