CRAFT by World Market + Giveaway

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Midweek greetings! The team at World Market emailed me last week to share a new concept in design they’re implementing and I love this idea! I’ve shopped World Market for years so I was excited to read that World Market is partnering with artisans across the globe to produce limited editions of handcrafted goods.

It’s called CRAFT by World Market, and every month they now feature unique items made by crafters and designers from around the world. If enough people preorder an item within the time frame, the product will be brought to life. Here’s a peek at a few of the items from last month and this month’s collections. The clock ticks every month on these goods so if you see something you love, you’ve got to preorder it quick!

Rustic + Refined Dining Room

Monday, August 12th, 2013

A few months ago I was approached by World Market to partner on a room makeover – they inquired if I would take their products and completely redo a space top to bottom. Um * ahem * “Yes!” I replied being a fan of their store for over a decade. I had the perfect candidates in mind – a very deserving family. 

My friends Cheryl and Jay are teachers and they’ve spent many years teaching in the local school system. They bought a house last year with a formal dining room and have wanted to entertain friends and family but didn’t have the time or budget to pull a space together. CG and World Market to the rescue!

The plan was to introduce contrast, color, pattern, and warmth to the room by mixing classic elements with rustic finishes. I used the window panels as the jumping off point for the entire space, pairing grays, plums, and yellows with warm metallic sheens.

The plan included a rustic dining table and mixed seating (I love those hourglass gold tables used as stools!), various wood finishes, a layered plum palette, and a casual table setting.

Here’s what the dining room looked like two months ago when I started:

Here is the dining room totally transformed!

We added the tongue and groove wall treatment in July and I painted above it a contrasting charcoal gray with a hint of taupe (Glidden’s ‘Arrowwood’) pulling the paint color from the fabric in the window panels.  Favorite elements?  Where to begin… let’s start with the fabulous sideboard.
