World Market Fall Collection

September 5th, 2014

It’s no secret I’m a HUGE fan of World Market, I shop there all the time and I worked with them last year to create this rustic refined dining room and a summer sangria party. I was in my local store yet again yesterday shopping for some tabletop accessories for my home for the autumn season, I’ll share them soon!

We’ve partnered again to promote their new fall Desert Caravan Collection and World Market again does what they do best! This fall collection is an amazing assortment of new home and decor pieces crafted of warm metallic sheens and vivid gem tones, carved wood accents, and textiles in global inspired motifs.

No Fail Objects for Styling a Console Table

September 4th, 2014

Fall is approaching and in this season I get all vignetty – that desire to style vignettes around the house with fallish things. My entry console table looked a little ho hum so I picked up a new vase and some candles today, filled the vase with olive tree clippings from my yard, and tucked some baskets below for shoes.

The console table is one of the most useful pieces of furniture, it adds storage and style to a narrow space in a foyer or tucks up nicely behind the back of a sofa. I rounded up several favorite examples of console tables that add both beauty and practicality to a space. I noticed many commonalities in the way that they’re styled with layered objects, here’s a list of “no fail” objects to gather on yours too.

Branches or Botanicals. One of my favorite things from nature to add to any vignette are branches. In any season, they are tall and sculptural and reach up high into vertical wall space adding organic appeal. But anything botanical works on a console table and adds that “something living” element such as a small vase of flowers or a collection of succulents or a just a few yard clippings from a favorite perennial.

Baskets. Baskets fill the negative space below a console table and add desirable texture. They also bring the benefit of extra storage: linens in a dining room, wood in a living room, shoes in an entry. etc.

Lamps. Singular or in pairs, lamps add the obvious: light! Or better yet, dimmer light than overhead chandeliers for greater ambiance. A great lamp will also be statuesque on your console if its base is curved, faceted, colorful, or alluring in some way.

Books. New or old, a stack of hardcover books is always appealing on the interesting topics of travel, architecture, history, or design. In a community space, make them ones that visitors will want to thumb through during their stay.
