Friday Favorites: Trending At Target!

Hi Glam readers!  I hope you've had a wonderful week.
This week I stopped in to Target to pick up a few things our family needed and as usual, I fell in love with half of the things in the store.
Today, I wanted to share a few of my favorites.

I fell in love with this tote for Summer!  The brightly colored tassels add the perfect touch of fun!

They also currently have some great Moroccan inspired clutches.

I really love the colors in this one.  
It's perfect for a date night or even a night out with some of your favorite girls.

They have some adorable accessories for kids rooms with the addition of the new pillow fort line.  This 'Adventure Awaits' sign is perfect for any little guys room.  I'm thinking it would be a cute addition to Shiloh's!

This is part of the new oh joy! line at Target and I have to say, I love this pillow!  

I love this serving pitcher!  It actually reminds me of something Anthropologie might a fraction of the price, of course!

Love the new Summer line of candles and note cards.  I'm especially loving the pineapple candles!

I thought this pillow was a fun nod to Summer and again, I love the pineapple detail.

Last, but not least, they also had a really cute flamingo pillow.  I think this would look adorable in a girls room!

How about you?

Have you found any favorites lately?

I would love to hear about them!

Green With Envy!!!

Hi Glam readers!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
I love decorating with neutral, but you really can't go wrong with a pop of color!
For the next few weeks I thought I might do a little series and highlight how effective it can be to use just one color to take center stage.

I happen to love green, it's one of my favorite colors.  I remember begging my Mom to paint my room "mint green" as a little girl because I loved it so a result my first grown up living room was painted "lime twist".  It was a really pale shade of lime green and I loved it at the time.

I recently discovered Amie Corley via Pinterest and I love her work!  Everything about this room is spot on for me!  Love the zebra rug and the pop of Kelly green is rocking my world!  Paired with the blush colored brass chairs, it really strikes a perfect balance.

Again, this is a great representation of Kelly green executed well.  The ceiling here is stunning and it looks like this room also boasts an amazing view!

I love the classic, neutral element in this room paired with one pop of Kelly Green.  The artwork really pulls the whole space together and makes a beautiful statement.

The walls are a bold choice here, but with all the other elements in the room being neutral it works and works well!

This is actually a desk I refinished a while ago.  You can read about that whole transformation here.
It's still one of my very favorite transformations!

I love a pop of green so much, I even designed out old dining room with a pop of Kelly.

I re-designed our living room during the One Room Challenge, which was an amazing experience!!
You can read all about the process and the reveal here.

I haven't decided what I'll do in the new dining area yet, it's much smaller, so we'll have to see how all that works out.  Once we get all moved in I'll take you guys along for the entire ride!

How about you?

Is there any particular color you'd like me to feature in this little series?

I would love to feature one of your favorite colors!!

Friday Five Under $5!!

Hi Glam readers!  It's Friday!
I hope you all have had a great week and have something fun planned for the weekend.

I happened to stop at Target early this week and they have some really amazing outdoor items in the dollar spot.  Seriously, you could create quite an adorable al fresco dinner party using things only from the dollar spot.  I just had to share all the great options with you.

Target has these fun, new melamine plates in the dollar spot!  I love the colors.  They're available in 4 count packages for the larger dinner size and in smaller, appetizer size in packs of 6.

There's brightly patterned cups that go with the selection as well.

Love these wide smoothie straws.  They are paper, so they have a bit of a retro feel, but the colors and prints are so fresh and lovely!  These were just $3 for a package of 25.

They also have these adorable brightly dipped wooden utensils for $1 a package.

They have these beautiful candle holders in various sizes and colors.  I am really loving the hot pink and cobalt combination!

How about you?

Have you found anything great for your outdoor setting at a great price?

I would love to hear about it!!

Furniture Dreaming....

Hi Glam readers!
I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far.
I'm fortunate enough to work in the design field full time now, so I'm surrounded by beautiful things all day long.  As a designer, it's only natural that I'm drawn to beautiful furniture, but some things you see and they just stick with you.  You can't get them off of your mind.
I have several that are on my radar, some I am fortunate enough to own and others I'm hunting for.  I believe I'll find them at just the right price at just the right time!

Today, I wanted to share some of my favorites with you!

You all know how much I love a Chesterfield!  This one is available through Joybird and you can customize it in tons of color options.  I love it it in Kelly green, it's truly a statement piece.  You'd have to balance it with the other design elements in the room in order to showcase it without it overwhelming the space.  It's priced at $2,300 which isn't bad for a sofa you custom pick!

This beauty is available from Anthropologie.  I love the lucite legs and etched brass details!  It would work beautifully as a desk or a vanity.  It's truly a stunning showpiece.

This is a revival piece of a classic Chinese Chippendale chair, which I fell in love with years ago when I first spotted it in Domino magazine.  They can be pretty pricey, but I scoured Craigslist for years and finally found them for $35 each!  It pays to be patient!

Milo Baughman vintage brass etagere...these beauties range from $3,000-$6,000 on 1st Dibs.
I found mine at the thrift store in Chicago for $20....yes, $20.  Please don't hate me!  It's one of my very favorite pieces!

This one is a classic and I've been dreaming of adding it to my home for quite some time.  The reproductions are pricey, even the cheapest one I've found was $730.  I have heard of several people finding them in second hand shops and on Craigslist though, so fingers crossed!  Hopefully, I'll come across one some day!

How about you?  Are there any furniture items you love that you've been hunting for for your own home?

I would love to hear about them!!!

Friday Favorites: Lovely Lighting From CB2!!

Hi Glam readers!  Happy Friday, I hope you have some fun planned for the weekend.
It's been a while since I did a 'Friday Favorites' post and today I thought I would concentrate on one of my favorite!

Lighting is an amazing accessory that can really complete a room.  Lately, CB2 has been knocking out of the park in all departments and their lighting is no exception.

I love this amazing pendant light and the price point is great too.  This one is $79.95.  I love the geometric shape and brass finish!

I love this one and I appreciate the fact that it was designed by design school students!  This one is priced at $299, which great for a statement piece.

This is such a unique take on a table lamp and very well executed!
Priced at $119, this is certainly a step away from a 'traditional' table lamp and sure to light up your room in a beautiful way!

Armour Chandelier

This is another beautiful hanging light from CB2.  I love the two tone feature and the varying tiers as well.  It feels both simplistic and glamorous all at the same time.  This one is priced at $279.

Gold Tipped Bulb

I love this gold tipped bulb.  I think the metallic effect is chic enough to stand on it's own.  Combined with the exposed inner wiring, it would be be a fun solution to a lamp base that doesn't need a shade or even in a bathroom that has exposed bulbs.  These are just $8.95 each!

How about you?  Do you love lighting as much as I do?
I have a stash, hoard impressive collection of lamps I've picked up from thrift stores and other various places.  They're a great way to make a big statement!

Have you found any great lighting lately?

I would love to hear about it!

I would love to hear what some of your favorite lighting styles are as well!

Beautiful Easter Tables!!!

Hi Glam readers!  I can't believe Easter is almost here!  
Granted, it's early this year, but is still moving at warp speed here.  I'm trying to take care of my Mom and navigate that, it seems there are a lot of ups and downs.  Please say a prayer for our family if you think of it.

Easter is this weekend and today I thought it would be fun to share some fun table ideas.  You all know there's nothing I like more than a good tablescape.

I love this simple idea.  The blue Ball jars are classic but look stunning and decidedly Spring-like paired with yellow tulips.

I love this color scheme.  Again, it's simple but it feels crisp and fresh.  The green moss is perfect for Spring and the daisies in the milk glass vessels are making my heart skip a beat!

I love the table Cassie did this year.  I think I've mentioned before that she's long been one of my favorite bloggers.  I love the way she combines gold touches with natural elements for her Easter table.  If you haven't gotten a chance to visit her blog, hop won't be disappointed!

I love this idea from Traditional Home.  I think the combination is definitely classic and at the same time contemporary.  I love the combo of the black and white with the green.  That bamboo flatware makes my heart skip a beat as well.

How about you?

Are you hosting Easter this year?

I would love to hear about your table and your menu!

Spotlight On Design: Hugo's Fine Furniture & Interiors

Hi Glam readers!  Most of you know I'm trying to get my bearings in the Jacksonville area.
I'm really loving it so far.  I feel like it offers the warmth and beauty of Florida with a bit of a more historic feel, which I love.
I'm learning all the best spots in town for interior design and vintage finds and I thought I would share my favorites with you as I come across them.

Hugo's Fine Furnishings & Interiors is a Florida staple.  Started by Albert Hugo nearly a hundred years ago, it is synonymous with great design in this area.  There are two showrooms and design services encompassing everything from custom furniture to interior design services.  It is truly a one stop shop for furnishing needs.

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to visit both showrooms and I just had to share some of the beauty with you!

Filled with a beautiful mix of Chinoiserie, classic and traditional with a twist.  Hugo's is a must see destination for any design enthusiast coming through this area!

I hope if you're ever passing through, you'll get the opportunity to stop in!

How about you?

Are there any amazing design destinations in your town?

I would love to hear all about them!!!!
