2016 New Collections: CB2

Apologies for the brief blog hiatus! I intended to post every day this week but real life and my full time job got crazy busy this week. Today I’m back with my favorites from CB2!  (I shared a few of my other favorites on Monday here: 2016 West Elm collection) Along with a new logo, CB2 has a great new collection out this year. Gorgeous metallics, unique colors and materials and fun shapes.

Seating: The leather daybed is such a gorgeous statement piece and would be a classic for years to come. The quirky colors and curves of the loveseat and chair add a punch of personality to any space and rose gold chair is a new twist on a vintage look. I’m such a fan of anything and everything rose gold lately.

The dark wood and brass combo on this first table is amazing and I’m enthralled by the shape of these table legs. The marble and gold is another favorite combo and the curvy legs on this table would look great next to a sofa.
Lighting: The clean, circular shapes and brass details make these lights a classic for any home. The simplicity of the pendant would look great in a triplet combo over a kitchen island and the sconce would work well in a living room, paired on either side of a sofa. The sconce has an unexpected, fun twist that I adore– the perfect little leather strap. globe-pendant-light hemisphere-wall-sconce
Decor and Accessories: This rose-gold bar cart might be my favorite item in the entire new line. It’s so elegant and stylish. I have this marble paper towel holder on my wish list to purchase soon. I have a problem with buying too many vases and these certainly won’t help my cause: sundial // hand painted // abstract. Last but not least, these neutral pillows have wonderful eye-catching details with the bold color-blocking and the beautiful texturedolce-vita-bar-cartmarble-paper-towel-holdersundial-vase marinha-vase tread-vase quilted-no.-101-18-pillow gravel-ivory-18-pillow

Mad Men Inspired Office with Chairish

I’m a big fan of Mad Men (especially since my real life job is at an advertising agency) and am sad to see the series end. One of my favorite elements of the show is the gorgeous mid-century design elements utilized in their offices and homes. I love to watch the furniture and decor change as the series moves through history. When Chairish asked me to create a style board using their gorgeous mid-century modern pieces, I happily said yes!

Here’s my take on a Mad Men inspired mid-century modern office (also known as my new dream office):

midcentury modern office


I’ve incorporated three zones in this office style board:

First: The all-important credenza with a bar on top, because it wouldn’t be Mad Men without office cocktails. The credenza, lamps, barware (the pineapple is an ice bucket!) and art on the gallery wall are all from Chairish.

 Second: The restored mid-century modern desk is one of my favorite classic staples and the yellow tufted office chair is the perfect compliment for a pop of color and style. The gorgeous lighting fixture above the desk adds a fun, eclectic touch.

Third: Another important aspect of the Mad Men offices… a great couch! Whether you’re having a cocktail, taking a nap or chatting about business, the characters always find a way to utilize the couch. Adding a feminine touch, this light shade of pink goes well with the brass and glass side tables.

Shop all of these amazing mid-century pieces at Chairish.

Shop Love: Jayson Home

Next up in the Shop Love series: Jayson Home. I found out about this shop long ago, but it’s still one of my favorites. Most of their furniture comes with a high price tag, however, Jayson Home has a great line of affordable accessories. I bought a marni glass several years ago and use it as a vase for flowers quite often. It’s simple, yet so glamorous, and works anywhere in my apartment. Example below:
