Designs Shipping to California, New York & Dallas!

I’m just wanted to peak my head up from my desk and say hello. It has been a very busy Summer of designing! Just this month Decorator in a Box box has shipped to California three times, New York twice and Dallas. It’s so fun to get to share affordable interior design across the country. The best part is not only is each State and City different the styles are different. I am not a one trick pony designer. I will find your personal style and create a design based on that. Where should I ship your custom design? Here is a peek at some of the designs shipped just before they were boxed.

Lighting Trend :: Extension Arm Sconce

Want to give your kitchen, living or bath high style lighting? Get in on the extension arm sconce trend. The more industrial looking the better. This works well above open kitchen shelves paired with subway tile. It’s also a more interesting option above a bathroom mirror or bookcase. Here is some design inspiration to get you thinking of where to add sconces in your home.

Do you need help with a design on your next home project? Interior design doesn’t need to cost a fortune. Let’s create a custom Decorator in a Box to meet your personal style and budget!

Sneak Peek :: San Fran Decorator in a Box

I’m peeking my head up from my desk to give you a sneak peek. Then it’s back to work, so I can get these designs in the mail before Santa arrives. I had so much fun working on this traditional style design for a client in the San Fran area. The mission was to incorporate all her existing antiques and artwork to give it a collected look. I think I achieved just that while still keeping thing cozy and not too formal. Here is a sneak peek at the design before it was popped in the mail. The shopping list details of course are for the client. Alright back to designing for me!

Do you want a Decorator in Box of your very own? Well contact me and let’s start to decorate. Interior design makes a great gift! Be sure to check out my gift certificates.

Nice Structure :: Perfect Swedish Cabin

As Summer draws to a close cabins will to. My friends back home in MN are soaking up ever last drop of sun before Winter arrives and they close their lake cabins. This has me looking back at an old Swedish cabin post. This cabin on an island in the Swedish archipelago (via short boat from Stockholm)…well just via these photos from Remodelista that is for me. I love the simplicity, rustic charm and attention to detail of this cozy escape. Enjoy and see the full cabin tour at Remodelista.

Nice Structure :: Finnaire Glams Up with Marimekko

In movies I see how glam air travel once was. I often take my daughter to the local flight museum and I’m in awe seeing the designer dresses flight attendants use to wear. They served up hot food and coffee on Grandma’s best china wearing Emilio Pucci. While flipping the pages of Elle Decor I saw that Finnair is going back to this glamour approach of flying. They teamed up with the famous textile company Marimekko to adorn the plane inside and out with pattern, color and style. Everything from their signature poppies on the outside of the airplane to china and blankets has the Marimekko touch. Maybe there is still hope for us to fly like Don Draper.

Product Love :: Sheepskin and Mongolian Lamb

I love sheepskin and Mongolian lamb accents in a room. It’s a wonderful way to bring comfort and coziness into a space that needs it. Feeling like your Sisal rug is too rough? Throw down some sheepskin rugs, poufs, pillows or stools to add a much needed softness. Do you love the look of your modern mesh desk chair, but not the comfort? Toss a sheepskin throw over the chair to make it and your office oh so cozy.  Here is some inspiration to get you headed in the right direction. The look works best in small accents and not doing too much.  Don’t miss the D.I.Y lamb stool tutorial below.

Nice Structure :: SMEG Keeps It Cool

The power of adding a SMEG refrigerator in your Kitchen is amazing. It has the same impact as an architectural detail. It takes a kitchen from nice to whoa! I would love to add one to my kitchen…I just don’t know if I could ever decide on a color…something minty perhaps.

What color would you pick?
