Kip & Co is an Australian lifestyle brand started by siblings Hayley & Kate and their best friend Alex. The line is filled with bright and airy pastels coupled with bold and energetic patterns. From colorful cutlery to tasseled throws and even quilted playmats for your little one, Kip & Co’s designs are always innovative and fun. Recently, the brand expanded its online retail reach to the United States and I’m really excited about it! Get your hands on one of their gorgeous towels, handbags or throw pillows to add a bit of whimsy to your everyday life. Check out their line and see what you’ve been missing!

My absolute favorite has to be the tasseled throws! There’s just something about them that adds so much dimension and texture. If I had to label the line, I’d say it strikes the perfect balance between boho chic and modern. Check out Kip & Co and add some off the beaten path accesories to your home decor!

Playful Patterns & Bold Colors in Stacey Blake’s North Carolina Home

Stacey Ann Blake didn’t know that becoming a stay at home parent to her two young boys would provide the time needed to discover her new design talent. A talent that has landed her in the esteemed pages of Better Homes and Gardens, Simple Spaces and featured on popular blogs like Design Sponge and The Jungalow. It almost seems unimaginable that a woman so talented didn’t know all along.

Her breathtaking Fayetteville, North Carolina home is what designer’s dreams are made of.  A mixture of bold hues like magenta and orange are grounded by rich earthy greens. Eclectic textures and patterns stitch both modern and bohemian styles together seamlessly. Stacey is a gift to the design community and an inspiration for a North Carolina girl like me. Her blog, Design Addict Mom, highlights her thoughts on developing design trends, creative roundups and of course her own amazing living space. Here are a few of my favorites.

This lively chair is the star of the show, displaying its vivid pink color mixed with a striped pattern. The cowhide rug is also a major focal point, creating an unexpected twist in this beautiful living area.

Soft blue wall color acts as the perfect backdrop for bold punches of pink and orange. Intricate patterns from the pillows, rugs and sofa combine for a gorgeous ensemble of color.

This Mid-Century-Modern style chair is a welcomed introduction of deeper color in this space. Various pinks and greens gently cascade down the patterned leaf wallpaper, creating a calming effect.

Oh, to be a kid again! Pictured here are Stacey’s two handsome sons in their magical playroom. A whimsically colored blackboard design creates a sense of wonderment and a myriad of patterns and shapes make this the ultimate fun land!

Ok, so I’m in an ultra generous mood! I wanted to give you all some Pretty Pink Christmas Gift Tags! I have been wrapping presents with my husband and said, “I forgot the gift tags.” What I’ve done in the past is cut pieces of wrapping paper and use them as gift tags. As long as you have a printer, you don’t have to fall victim to my same Christmas fate..lol!

Two of my favorite colors are pink and red. The bubblegum pink truly compliments the rich red color! These tags are feminine and girly with a dose of Christmas cheer! No need to keep you any longer, click here to print out your Free Pretty Pink Christmas Gift Tags!

Happy Holidays  & Thank You So Much For Reading My Blog!

With less than 2 weeks left until Christmas, you may be scrambling to find just the right gift for the stylish lady on your list! There’s nothing like a gift that’s thoughtful and is something that you would love to receive yourself. So I corralled 4 different gifts that I believe will make your wife, girlfriend, best friend or lady friend smile. I mean who doesn’t like nice stuff? Combining these together is sure to get you extra brownie points! 🙂 Ok, here are my picks in no particular order!

Birchbox-January-2015-670x483Your stylish friend will absolutely love her Birchbox subscription! Who wouldn’t appreciate having amazing beauty products delivered to their door? Most ladies I know love to get mail and when it has anything to do with looking good, that’s icing on the cake! 

71pCNDUiQoL._SL1500_The Naked 3 makeup palette features 12 shades of pigmented, quality eyeshadows. This palette took the place of all of my other small ones because there is such a wide variety of colors from pale pink to sultry dark browns. It’s got everything!

 

Victorias-Secret-2014-Beauty-Rush-Shiny-Kiss-Flavored-Gloss-Gift-SetWell I’m pretty much a lip gloss fanatic, so for me this is a no-brainer. The Victoria Secret Beauty Rush Shiny Lip Gloss Set has the consistency of a great lip gloss with added color. I don’t wear lipstick, so this is perfect for me. The shades are neutral, pretty and will compliment a variety of skin tones.

 

 

Kate-Spade-New-York-Daycation-Lacey-Wallet-1I couldn’t ever do a round up without some type of wallet or handbag because I just love them! This black and white floral Kate Spade wallet is absolutely gorgeous and displays a lovely pattern that is a departure from solid colors. Of course any vibrant color or pattern will do!

I hope you like my picks, let me know which one you wouldn’t mind Santa putting under your Christmas tree! LOL!!!

Decorating my children’s rooms has always been something that I enjoy doing. It seems like their bedrooms are a little more creative and a lot more fun! Kids are the only ones that can sleep in beds shaped like castles, cars and boats and it’s completely acceptable. There’s so much freedom in that and I love it! Check out these super creative kids rooms that will make you long for younger years.
