Online Interior Decorator Find of the Week Pottery Barn Cammeray All Weather Sectional

Online Interior Decorator

As an online interior decorator, my thoughts of warmer weather lead me to outdoor design. Even though there is still a lingering chill in the air, I can’t help myself from dreaming about summer.

My current summer love is the Cammeray All Weather Sectional from Pottery Barn. The slim profile is a fresh look and welcome after years of heavy, blocky outdoor future. The collection is fresh, casual and classic – simply perfect for the upcoming warmer months.

Online Interior Design Service – Texas Ranch House Design

This week, one of the many rooms I had the pleasure of designing was a Family Room for a Texas ranch house. Think long room, old fireplace, wood paneling and two exterior doors.  This space was a challenge on the furniture layout side but the decorating side was a blast!

I added warm white walls, a leather sofa, some rustic elements, fun prints and pops of color turned the space into a ranch meets updated farmhouse look.

Below are a few of my favorite selections from the design:

  1.   Area Rug

Online Interior Design Service

The rug is where a design usually starts for me and this room was no exception. Once I found this jute rug with teal stripes I knew exactly where the design was headed. What is not to love about this rug? Natural fiber, stripes, color, fringe and this rug from Surya happens to also be budget friendly.

2.   Throw Pillows

Online Interior Design Service

These wool and cotton throw pillows from Surya hit the right note between rustic and refined. Place on the brown leather sofa, these throw pillows added the needed color and a touch of softness.

3.   Wall Art

Online Interior Design Service

To break up the newly white painted wood paneling on the walls, we needed some great art. This set of framed botanical prints was exactly right. Try hanging a series of art near a television to break up the look of big boxes on the wall. We placed these near a television to do just that.

4.   Coffee Table

Online Interior Design Service

There are a lot of industrial modern style coffee tables available these days. In my online interior service design work this is something I stumble into all the time. Our selected table from Wayfair hits all the right notes – style, scale and price.

5.   Pouf Ottomans

Online Interior Design Service

This teal and green graphic print is just what my design needed. One would not typically think modern print in a farmhouse style but sometimes mixing in the unexpended makes a design awesome.

Online Interior Decorator Favorite Find – WS Home Marinella Perosa: Ombré Landscapes Art Grouping

Online Interior Decorator

One challenge as an online interior decorator is finding a ready-made series of art, that look curated, beyond the standard botanical or fruit print. This is why I was so excited to discover these abstract prints, available in a series, from Williams-Sonoma Home.

Groupings art together make a bold statement in almost any room. Something about hanging a series of similar piece together to make a large composition speaks cool, refined and strong sense of style.

Reminiscent of Rothko’s artwork, Marinella Perosa: Ombré Landscapes are colorful almost linear works of art work. Together they create an unexpected yet totally awesome twist on an art grouping. The composition is strong enough that this series could be used alone in a room as a singular statement.

Love these framed works of art so much I may need for my own home!

Online Interior Decorator Find of the Week – Z Gallerie Trace of Feathers Art

Online Interior Decorator


As an online interior decorator I have vacillated with a love / hate relationship with the grey trend. But it appears the grey trend is here to stay, at least for a little while longer, why not add a cool “cool” grey piece of art to your home?


Love this “Trace of Feathers” art available at Z Gallerie. It is a hand-painted gallery wrapped canvas with visible texture and metallic pearl paint. A perfect way to embrace the grey trend until it drifts away.

London Calling Playhouse – Online Interior Decorator Find of the Week

Credit for today’s online interior decorator find of the week goes to my 11-year-old niece.

While taking some time with family this week, I learned that my niece had asked Santa for a phone booth for Christmas. “Not a working phone booth but one that I can go inside. It must red.” She said. Unfortunately, Santa was unable to deliver on her quirky request because, really, how would Santa even get a phone booth on his sleigh?

This adorable telephone booth playhouse from Land of Nod fits the bill of my niece’s detailed request. Can you believe it? Birthday perhaps!

Design Classics from an Online Interior Decorator

Sometimes a piece of furniture or other home furnishing is so good that it becomes a design classic. These no fail online interior decorator selected, go to elements, give a home a classic touch and work with a wide range of design styles.

Here are 18 timeless designer picks that blend with almost any décor:

1.)     Tolix first introduced these stools in the 1950’s and they remain a design classic. These metal barstools are a staple of an Industrial Modern look yet fit in well in almost any design style. Fun, classic and retro!

2.)      A stripe rug is always a good choice. The wide stripes and perfect color palate (navy and grey) allow this rug to work anywhere from a kitchen to a child’s bedroom or even under a dining table.

3.)      White slipcovered furniture is a foundation of Shabby Chic interiors yet there is no need to limit this look to only one style. White slipcovered furniture is crisp and clean looking and can fit into almost any style from contemporary to traditional to shabby Chic, all based on the shape and lines of the furniture!

4.)      Way too pretty to be left out in the in the rain! A bench with classic (hint of British Colonial lines) works incredibility well in an entry to welcome your guests in classic style. Adding a gorgeous long lumbar pillow softens the feel and can tie the bench back to your color scheme.

5.)      At first you might see a glass pendant light and think dated and done but not these fixtures! The cube shape and antique bronze (almost a black) finish options help these pendant work seamlessly in most interiors. A set of three small fixtures hung over a large island creates a lovely composition.

6.)       Need a way to hide your television when not in use? A Ming style armoire is just the right piece. Timeworn, this type of armoire becomes a quiet focal point in a room.

7.)       Warm and inviting. Nothing says family and home like a large well-worn round dining table. A trestle table is an element that helps a house look like a home.

Online Interior Decorator

8.)     Swivel chairs are both functional and cool, and in a rounded tub shape are design classics. I love to add swivel chairs to large open space so you can turn toward different sections of a room creating an easy of conversation and great use of space.

Online Interior Decorator

9.)     Botanical prints work in almost any room. Classic black and white botanicals are even better. For a modern look in a bedroom pair with grey walls, white linens and warm dark furniture.

10.)     If given the choice, I would typically select fresh over faux but there are some really good artificial plant options now available. I adore a long planter of succulents on a table. They give an organic, earthy touch to a home.

Online Interior Decorator


11.)      Natural fiber rugs are always a good look and they typically cost much less than wool counterpart. These rugs morph their look to fit almost any design style based on how they are used. One of my favorite ways to use a natural fiber rug is with a hide or sheepskin placed on top.

Online Interior Decorator


12.)      White matelassé bedding evokes timeless luxury! Working into countless color scheme, white matelassé bedding is a chameleon of sort; add punches of bold accent color or softer color touches to completely change the look. This bedding will never go out of style.

13.)      A starburst mirror is not just for Mid Century Modern interiors. This iconic style mirror can be used over a fireplace, above an entry table or anywhere you need a bit of unexpected coolness.

14.)      Glass waterfall tables vertically disappear in a living room allowing your rug underneath to shine. Even with this quiet presence, the glass waterfall table is certainly a table not to overlook.

Online Interior Decorator

15.)      Red and navy wool rugs in a traditional slightly ethnic style will never get tired looking. Seek rugs with an aged, antique look to work as a backdrop in a room.

Online Interior Decorator

16.)      Unrefined yet elegant, glass hurricanes always work well in design. These seeded glass hurricanes can be placed on a dining table of coffee table giving a soft glow and a touch of rustic to a room.

Online Interior Decorator

17.)      A perfect pairing with a solid, floral or even Ikat pillow counterpart. Stripe pillows are like a neutral – they go with just about any other pattern.

Online Interior Decorator

18.)     No online interior decorator list of classic design elements would be complete without an arc floor lamp. Timeless and modern these lamps are one of the best ways to add classic design to a room. Don’t limit yourself to using the arc floor lamp only in a Living Room. Why not bring into a Dining Room to light a table in an unexpected yet awesome way?
