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…
In my world, every room needs an element that sparkles and a metallic pillow is a simple way to add that accent.
I’m kinda over the Billy bookcase look and think that floating shelves are much more interesting and chic.

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.
A little color can take a free-standing soaking tub from OK to outstanding.
Three of my favorite things…black chairs + gold edging + bold fabric. What a great DIY project.
I never thought about stenciling french doors until I saw this photo. Such a great look.
Reading lamps turned wall lamps are such a practical and stylish way to light up an office space.
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.

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.

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.
