Mantle Mantra

With all this talk of a “Southern Freeze”, we have our minds wandering to warmer places. What better way to catch up on good conversation and even better company than around an open fire? Take a look through some of our favorite fireplace settings to date and learn a few tricks on how to turn your hearth into something worth bragging about. We pulled home accessories that bring out the deep violet tones of the ceramic tile surround. Offset dark hues with a tertiary color like this subtle mint green to keep the space looking fresh. Go bold with a stark white mantle, bringing pops of color in through a surround or dark hearth. The stacked fireplaces in this historic downtown home left this room with a quirky, off-center surround. We then played off this asymmetry by centering the mirror to the actual opening and filled the empty…

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…

Artist Spotlight: Izzy Hudgins

You’ve had a chance to meet Izzy Hudgins in yesterday’s post and now you have the pleasure of seeing how a piece from her latest series Gothic Romance translates into an interior space. We love the soft blush hues mixed with moody jewel tones and knew this was the perfect recipe for an intimate bedroom setting. In case you missed it, read more about what inspires Izzy here. 1. Set the mood in your private quarters with this whimsical wallpaper. The hushed plum tones are accented with hints of pale pink and moody greens to leave your accent wall looking both dark and feminine at the same time. 2.  Day dream to the scenes of Gothic Romance in this delicate canopy bed by (none other than) Anthropologie. Too much drama for your romantic estate? The canopy is optional and leaves this wrought iron bed a simple and versatile addition to any…

Seasons in The South

Savannah is notorious for being a little late with the seasons, but we finally think Autumn is (slowly but surely) making its way to our door. Lately we’ve been spotting a few great examples around town of how to return the greeting with festive door decor. Here are some of our local favorites: A wide stairway is a great canvas for fun seasonal decor. Experiment with different ways to showcase those warm, autumn colors. Mums, pumpkins, and dry foliage all come in a crisp warm palette sure to keep your front door looking fresh all season long. We love the verticality this door is getting with dried corn stalks. Balance your existing green foliage with a few warm elements (like gourds and hay) for a refreshing mix of old and new. Reinvent the wreath using local materials like this coastal home boasting oyster shell wall decor. …
