Rustic Modern Great Room











Entry and Living Room Update

The living room is the first room you see in many homes upon entering the house. So although it may be one of the least used rooms in the home, it is definitely the most viewed. Therefore making it a space that is both welcoming and beautiful is key. My client had some existing pieces like the coffee table and chairs so I brought in furniture pieces and accents to work well with those existing pieces. This couch from West Elm was the perfect item to contrast the linen chairs and white walls and finish work. The bookshelf from Joss & Main was an AMAZIING price and filled the wall exactly like we wanted it to- enough to fill the space but not so much that it covered up the pretty panelling. The other key item was this plaid rug from CB2. I love how the pattern and color in it brings the whole space together.

This artwork from Minted was another item that I thought helped to pull the space together.




This chandelier from Overstock was such a great price and it makes an understated statement which I love.

Keeping the shelves simple and fairly sparse allows you to still see the pretty finish work behind it but give the room the needed color and texture that it had to have. Plants were another important accent to liven up the room.




I love this view from the living room into the entry. This artwork from a local boutique in South Jordan called Nest Boutique keeps the entry serene and welcoming.

The pillow is from Mae Woven and the rug from Pottery Barn has just the right amount of pattern and durability that an entry needs.




The bench was a great find from Homegoods and the entry light is from Shades of Light. So happy with how everything came together with the mixture of woods and metals to make the space interesting, livable and appealing.

Park City Ski Lodge

condofamilyroom

When styling this client’s ski lodge we wanted a rustic modern design- something that looked good but was also cozy. The comfortable navy blue chairs from Target were a great purchase that filled the space perfectly and brought in some much needed color. The wood tones and natural fibers we incorporated helped to warm up the modern look and be functional as well as durable for renters. This fiddle leaf fig plant from ZGallerie is the best fake one that I’ve found and brings in just the right amount of greenery to the space.

These shelves from Ikea were the perfect spot to corral books and accessories and the Target lamp is such a reasonable price without having to sacrifice great looks.

The contrasting dark moldings with lightly painted walls was a great way to combine rustic and modern. This clock from CB2 is beautiful in any space with it’s pewter face and gold hands.

condotable

This rustic table from West Elm added a great touch of rustic to the space and the end chairs from World market add comfort and texture.

condokitchen

These stools from World market function perfectly in the space and the light wood tones help to offset all of the dark cabinetry.

condomaster

The lodge has 3 bedrooms and the master is for sure the showpiece. We combined textures with metals, fur and wood tones in neutral palettes to complement the rest of the condo.

condoguest

We added ski elements since the location is right at the foot of the Park City Canyons Ski Resort. This bed and nightstand are both from World market .

Home for Christmas

familyroomchristmas2

We love being home for Christmas!!! When I decorate for this holiday I like to keep it simple and uncluttered. I feel like even the littlest detail adds so much for the holiday.familyroomchristmas

There’s never a shortage of wreaths, garlands and ribbon at Christmas in my home- I add it wherever I need a pop of color or hint of Christmas.details2

I love putting unique ornaments in bowls and jars to bring in a touch of the holiday.

tree

Last year I started adding touches of pink to replace the red and I’ve never looked back! Still loving the pink.

train

We found this train a few years ago and have loved it ever since! Our kids look forward to using it every year.

Another one of my favorite things to decorate with are mini Christmas trees- I pretty much collect them.

I love how the advent calendar turned out this year. Filled with treats, notes and small toys, the kids get excited to open their package every morning!

A pink feather wreath? Why yes! Of course I had to have this as soon as I saw it!

hollyplant

I’d never seen a real holly plant until this year. What could be more Christmassy for a table centerpiece??

I only add subtle touches of Christmas in the kitchen but for me it’s just enough.

I always leave a tiered stand out on the buffet for treats I bake or receive so they get eaten!

I add a touch of Christmas in each bedroom- but the girls’ room is my favorite!!

Fall Update in My Home

fallfamilyroom

With each new season I feel compelled to style my home so it coincides inside with what the weather is like outside. For fall, I like to play with textures and bring in darker colors and softer, fluffier fabrics. fallcoffeetable

This fur throw paired with soft and velvety pillows do just that.

I can also never have too many pumpkins or fall florals in my home during this season. The vibrant colors of both add so much to the space. I prefer berries, sticks and leafy florals for the autumn floral arrangement. What’s so great about this foliage is that it lasts so much longer than a more flowery display.fallentry

Darkening my color scheme in the fall is also a must- even if it’s just switching out the art to make it feel a little more like the season.fallcorner

Another corner where softer fabrics add so much to the fall feel. On the ottoman I just added the green velvet pillow to make it more seasonal.fallpianoroom

In this piano room I just changed the lampshade to black, added some leafy florals, a plaid pillow on the bench and some pumpkins on the piano- simple additions without looking too overdone for the season.

So softer textures, darker colors, fall foliage and pumpkins are all you need to make your home feel warm and cozy during the autumn season when you spend so much more time indoors!

Layering the Perfect Shelf

Sometimes it’s hard to find that balance between having too much on a shelf to where it looks cluttered and too little to where it looks unfinished.

When styling a shelf, I like to start with the biggest piece first, whether it be a piece of artwork hanging or leaning on the shelf or a big accessory sitting on the shelf. Then I bring in the next biggest item. In this example it was the smaller piece of artwork (made my by 8 year old) leaning against the bigger picture that I’ve hung low above the shelf. I chose to hang the bigger picture instead of leaning it to give a little more height above the shelf- having some height is very important. Next I filled in the shelf with my favorite things- books, plants/florals, a petrified rock and bowl with a simple design on it. I’m not a matchy matchy designer so I like a good mix of colors, metals and patterns. Items such as books, plants or flowers and candles always tend to warm up a space so I try to have at least one of these 3 items on every shelf I decorate.

I believe that one of the most important things when layering a shelf is to choose items that you enjoy looking at and that have meaning to you. This shelf sits right next to my TV in our great room and it’s what I see when I walk down my stairs every morning- so I love being able to look at items that are personal to me as well as aesthetically appealing. My daughter’s artwork, the petrified rock found by my sister, leaves from one of our plants outside- all of these items collectively invoke a feeling of comfort and satisfaction when I look at them together.

To sum it up, here are my 3 tips to styling a shelfAngelaShelfStylingWeb:

1- display something with height

2- put at least one of of these 3 items on every shelf- plants or flowers, books or candles

3- show accessories that have personal meaning to you
