Looking at photos of celebrity homes can be overwhelming and intimidating at times, but if you study the spaces closely you’ll find lots of beautiful, unique and easy decorating ideas you can use to decorate your own home.

Here are a few of my favorite celebrity rooms and the ideas I think are worth copying…

Slide8

 Lauren Conrad

In my world, every room needs an element that sparkles and a metallic pillow is a simple way to add that accent.

Slide7

Issac Mizrahi

I’m kinda over the Billy bookcase look and think that floating shelves are much more interesting and chic.

Slide6

Tom Brady & Gisel Bundchen

We’re so use to seeing brick as a treatment on walls but the the idea of putting them on a ceiling is so fresh.

Slide5

Brooke Shields

A little color can take a free-standing soaking tub from OK to outstanding.

Slide4

Kourtney Kardashian

Three of my favorite things…black chairs + gold edging + bold fabric.  What a great DIY project.

Ellen DeGeneres

I never thought about stenciling french doors until I saw this photo.  Such a great look.

Slide2

Genevieve Gorder

Reading lamps turned wall lamps are such a practical and stylish way to light up an office space.

Cameron Diaz

For those of you that are fearless when it come to color, this is for you.  I vote for Emerald Green as the color of the year for 2015.

So, which of these celebrity spaces is your favorite?

Sometimes an image can stop you in your tracks not because it is a space with lots of design details and color, but because what makes it beautiful are the simple details and simplicity.

Design Tip:  Never, Ever, Ever pass up a beautiful picture frame when antiquing or thrifting.  There are so many other great ways to use a picture frame beyond framing a photo.

 Hi all!  I hope everyone has had a great week.  My week has been jammed packed and I’m so happy the weekend is here.

Today I wanted to talk about a decorative element that I think has the power to change the dynamics of a room.  It’s a little thing but in my book it’s one of the details you should pay close attention to when decorating.

I remember carrying a backpack years ago and how much I loved them.  Backpacks were wonderful for traveling and shopping totally hands free is great.  Just like all fashion statements, the backpack has found its way back and has once again become a hot trend for fall 2014 and spring 2015.

My ideal backpack styles are crafted of leather, have a sleek appearance and classic design details.  Here are seven of my top picks for 2014.

I also stumbled across a shop on Etsy that has come beautiful backpacks.  You can view the entire Bagy Bags collection here!

One of the design consultations I had recently got me thinking about the do’s and don’t of styling a sofa.  Not just any sofa, a sectional sofa.

I think a lot of people are attracted to sectional sofas because they offer abundant seating and because they seem to provide a bit more comfort than a traditional sofa.

After a while I think people can become disenchanted with their sectional sofa because they recognize that a sectional can limit the traffic flow within a room and sometimes a sectional feels overpowering in a space versus relaxed.

In my years of designing rooms, I’ve recognized that it’s not always the size, scale or placement of a sectional that causes the disenchantment, but instead its the fact that the sectional and the space around it are not styled or accessorized in the best way.

Even though I don’t do a ton of fall decorating, I usually build a centerpiece statement for my dining table.  This year it was a use what you have decorating project so all it took was trip to the garage, washing some glass pieces and a little faux bois wrapping paper.

I love using wrapping paper for a table runner and this faux wood grain paper is perfect for a fall tablescape.

Whenever I create a centerpiece arrangement I always use items that will add texture and I always create layers.  I used several of my vintage trophy urns to elevate pumpkins and to hold small containers of mums.  Instead of using all one color of pumpkin, I used a variety which gives the centerpiece lots of depth.

My collection of cloches and glass domes is ever-growing and they are great to use on the table.

Pumpkins perched on top of urns and under glass create the layered look I love.
