COASTAL-INSPIRED BEDROOM REFRESHES UNDER $200 WITH NORDSTROM PART 2



Good morning everyone! I'm thrilled that you enjoyed Part 1 of my coastal-inspired bedroom refresh with a blue and white Positano theme. Today's look was inspired by one of my recent posts featuring a beautiful beach house in Harbour Island. The home's color palette is neutral-tone furniture and decor with some subtle color added using accessories or paint. That's why I chose this Nautica coverlet and euro shams for my bed. I thought they would complement my white bedskirt and new Nordstrom sheet set and help me to create a relaxed yet sophisticated look in my room. I also thought this look would be great in a guest room. I added a few bedside accessories, such as the Voluspa candle and a warm colored shell that my father brought back from a trip to Africa. Such a great look and each piece was under $200 at Nordstrom. Nordstrom has a fantastic selection of bedroom refreshes for under $200 that are perfect for any style. By just adding a few new pieces, you can actually change the whole look and feel of your bedroom. In this bedroom redesign, I added the Nautica coverlet, three Nautica euro shams, Nordstrom sheet set, and a Voluspa scented candle. Nordstrom also carries bedding basics, such as euro pillow inserts, pillows and mattress pads. So everything you need for a bedroom refresh is available as Nordstrom

COASTAL-INSPIRED BEDROOM REFRESHES UNDER $200 WITH NORDSTROM PART 1


Good morning! I'm so excited to share in collaboration with Nordstrom, two coastal-inspired bedroom refreshes under $200. Today is Part 1 and make sure to stop by tomorrow to see Part 2. With the change of seasons I love refreshing my bedroom with new sheets and accessories and was inspired by this post to create a coastal-cool, Positano style look in my bedroom. I've always been drawn to blue and white and when I found these euro shams at Nordstrom, I knew I had to purchase them. The velvet, cobalt blue trim added just the right amount of color to my white quilt and cotton sateen sheets. The cotton sateen sheets are also from Nordstrom and feel so luxurious. To top off my new bedroom look, I added the Capri Blue scented candle in pomegranate citrus and wow is that candle yummy! I'm definitely going to order more, especially since it's on sale now. I created a whole new look in my bedroom with three euro shams, one sheet set, one candle, all of which can be found online at Nordstrom with free shipping and each item was under $200. You can visit Nordstrom to see all of their fun bedroom accessories and dreamy bedding refreshes to fit any style.

SUMMER STRIPES


I think every girl needs an easy, striped summer dress and this versatile, strapless dress from the Gap has been a go-to for me this summer. I've also worn it as a skirt with this tank top and since summer is not over just yet, I still have plenty of opportunities to wear it. What's been worn on repeat in your closet?

TORY BURCH OFFICE DESIGN & PRIVATE SALE


Good morning everyone! One thing I love in design, is walking into a Tory Burch store. The lighting, furniture and accessories are bright, comfortable and super stylish just like her office in Manhattan. I'm loving the gold accents and the fact that although the design is elegant, it's also very comfortable and easy. It feels like every corner is expected to be enjoyed. I'm sure the fact that she has three boys inspired her to make her home inviting. I love her bookcase styling here in her office and the upholstered chairs in that bright blue. 

I also wanted to let you know that Tory Burch's Private Sale is ending today. I know my readers love good sales, so I chose a few of my favorite styles from her sale to share with you. Enjoy!

LOOKS I LOVE...


Good morning! As you may have noticed, fall fashion is rolling in and I decided to start creating a wishlist before I miss out on a few things that I loved last fall. Last fall, I purchased the quilted puffer jacket in black and this year I'm looking forward to adding this natural one to my wardrobe. I know I'll get a lot of use out of it here in Miami on those few cold days that we get (in few, I mean maybe a handful). It's great to travel in and looks amazing on! Oh and there's good news! Tory Burch decided to extend her Private Sale to August 15th! Click here to shop what's left of that sale and save up to 70% off. You can also see Tory Burch's Summer Sale that's going on right now.

FALL TRENDS FOR YOU AND YOUR HOME


FALL PASTELS WITH GUCCI


MIXED PRINTS and SLEEK SILHOUETTES WITH VALENTINO HAUTE COUTURE

If you're like me, you probably dress similar to how you decorate. I love tropical home decor and you'll usually find me wearing light, resort style clothing during spring and summer. In the fall, my wardrobe consists of modern styles that are streamline with a mix of other textures and prints. Gold is often an accent color I wear in the fall to lighten up a black or gray outfit. The idea of combining fashion and home design is something that is often on my mind. I love to include some ideas on what to wear for a tropical getaway or location in my destination and beach house posts. You can guess how excited I was when West Elm (love that store) asked me to share my favorite fall lighting picks that are inspired by new runway designs. What a fun project! After viewing many Fall 2014 runway show lookbooks, I came up with four lighting designs that are perfect to add to your fall home design "wardrobe." One fashion trend I'm loving right now is fall pastels, such as the mid-century table lamp in pale turquoise and this linework table lamp in blue. These lamps will lighten up a room and add a dash of unexpected color for fall. I also appreciate the sleek designs of the mid-century glass pendant and the faceted stone table lamp. Lately, my home design style has been leaning more towards a modern-tropical palette and these two lighting styles fit that bill. West Elm believes in making design affordable and if you want to add a dash of drama to a room, their lighting can meet your style needs. They offer comfortable, kick-up your feet style where you can have a super stylish space and feel right at home at the same time. West Elm is also where I bought my jute boucle rug that everyone loves in my Instagram posts. Visit the West Elm Lighting Shop here.

CASTAWAY CHIC IN HARBOUR ISLAND


This is just the beach house inspiration that I needed for the week! This beautiful retreat is one of six private residences on Harbour Island and was designed by interior designer Alessandra Branca, who describes this home as an, "ode to the island and all that it stands for." All I can say is that I'm in love... What do you think?
