Chic Shelves in Three Simple Steps

You’ve finally found the bookshelf of your dreams and all seems right in the world – until you realize said bookshelf is empty. Standing tall in your library or living room with nothing to showcase but the price tag and perhaps a shipping kernel or two. And, your bookshelf is only a million accessory combinations away from being perfect. Where do you start? Let these three simple tips get you going, and if all else fails, we’ve got your back. Step #1: Symmetry Start by using larger accessories to anchor the shelf and add a sense of rhythm, seen above with a plaster urn and matching planters. Keeping a symmetrical pattern at eye level will make more “organic” styling look purposeful instead of chaotic. Step #2: Cohesive Variety Collect art and objects that differ in shape but share the same tonal values or subject matter. We curated a collage behind…

Living With The Butcher

As our much-anticipated butcher shop project breaks ground this week, we were inspired to bring you the fundamental elements of our design in the form of a farm-fresh living space. In true Savannah style, kick back in those classic Hunter boots on an industrial coffee table while getting face to face with a longhorn – it’s what’s for dinner. 1. Set the tone more towards sophisticated than barnyard-chic with Cisco’s Spider Chandelier. Spanning an impressive 72″, the large fixture can fill a room without seeming too heavy. 2. Always have the fields on your mind even when inside with a geometric planter from Light & Ladder. Try filling with a low-maintenance variety like jade or a common succulent. 3. Take fancy farm living head on with this stunning photographic print from on of our favorite art sources, The Animal Print Shop. Use a minimal mat with a 1-inch frame…

Get The Look: Rye’s Playroom

With such great response to one of our recent Instagram posts that revealed parts of Rye’s playroom, we thought it would be nice to spread the love and source a few fun decor elements to help your kid’s rumble room have the same look. One thing we always stress to our clients (and personal style) is longevity. Even if you’re designing for a child, use classic design elements on more permanent pieces (such as wallpaper) that will last long past their teen years or transition to a new use. While you can easily get the look by sourcing our favorite online stores, don’t be afraid to browse your local thrift shop for rattan furniture or quirky art; these pieces are not as “dear” and can withstand the rigors of a playroom.  See below our original Instagram photo as well as a few things you can grab to duplicate Rye’s…

Lovebird Lingo

We’re not sure why birds get all the love during this season, but it sure does lend to some great home decor and furnishings. Today we’ve put together some of our favorite bird items that will have your home chirping style in no time.   1. You may find yourself daydreaming next to this sparrow wallpaper by Hygge and West. The subtle pops of “almost green” can give just the right amount of color to a neutral room. Use this on a large wall (or all four) without having to worry about the space looking too busy. 2. Two lumps are always better than one with this Grapefruit Sugar Bowl. The lid comes off to reveal a blue ceramic spoon for your serving pleasure. 3. Show your love from the ground up with Anthropologie’s Conure Rug. With sizes ranging from 2.5′ round to 8′, you’re sure to have…
