Winter Antiques Show 2016

I attended The Winter Antiques Show 2016 for a fun filled first peak at some of the best offerings from the most prestigious dealers!  The Winter Antiques Show took place at the historic Park Avenue Armory in New York City, and featured a variety of English, European and Asian fine and decorative arts.

Sophisticated Bunk Beds

Previously, I shared how versatile and functional bunk beds are for kids and teenager bedrooms.  Take your design to new heights by incorporating sophisticated bunk beds into your interior.  Here are a few inspirational ideas to get you thinking outside of the norm!

The Beach House Bedroom

Comfortably accommodate all of your friends for beach house parties with guest room bunk beds!  White-washed wood and crisp white linens give the room a fresh and spacious feel and curtains provide privacy.  I love that each bed has an overhead reading light!

The Connecticut Cottage Bedroom

I love this whimsical cottage bedroom; it has an air of traditional Connecticut design!  The natural wood frame of the bunk beds add instant rustic sophistication, while pull-out storage underneath the bed is low-key and chic.  Did you notice that the reading chair and accent pillow on the bed are made from the same material?  Love!

From Day Bed to Bunk Bed

Outdoor Fireplaces

The exterior of your home should be just as luxurious as your interior!  Outdoor fireplaces give your backyard, patio or pool area an added touch of elegance (not to mention coziness).  Here are some beautiful outdoor fireplaces for you to admire.
