THE TIMELESS BEAUTY OF BLACK & WHITE – LIVING SPACES

I personally love bright and bold colors, noticeable prints, patterns, etc. BUT there is something special about the striking contrast of black and white. It is timeless, classic, and just plain beautiful. So, for those who prefer less color, but still want to make an impact, here are a few inspirational pics (with sources) just for you. BE INSPIRED!

The Power of the Powder Room – Be Inspired

CLICK BELOW POST FOR IMAGE SOURCES!

A “powder room”, also known as a guest bathroom, or half bath, is a small bathroom that contains only a toilet and a sink. There is no shower or tub. You usually find the powder room on the main floor, near the living or family room. This allows guests bathroom access, without full access to the remainder of your home. Originating sometime before or during the 18th century, its purpose was for people to apply extra powder to their wigs prior to going before a member of a royal court or court of law. Hence the term “powder room”. In modern times, some women still refer to the half bath as the powder room, where they go to “powder their nose”. (I learn something new every day!)

One of My (Many) Styling Obsessions: GARDEN STOOLS!!!!

I am considering doing a style series on different design “obsessions”. What are some of your favorite décor pieces?

Stool Collage

I LOVE CERAMIC GARDEN STOOLS!!! I would love to have one in every room in my townhouse! They are chic, elegant, and universal. You can use them in place of nightstands, side / end tables, footstools, or just for pure aesthetic impact. They are available in all colors, styles, patterns, and materials, and the best part is: the price range!!!! I have seen garden stools as inexpensive as $40 – $60. The most expensive stool I came across was around $1,000.

Originating from China, these stools were traditionally used in gardens, dating back 1,000 years. Chinese homes were built around a courtyard, so outdoor furniture was essential. Eventually, these garden stools were used both indoors and outdoors as casual seating. Indoor stools were typically portable and made out of wood, while outdoor furniture, needing to withstand the elements, was created with stone, glazed stoneware, or porcelain.

Garden stools have been exported to the West for about 300 years, but it has only been since the mid-20th century that they have gained such popularity in the American interior design field. And with so many ways to style them in your home, I have a strong feeling that garden stools will be a popular design choice for years to come.
