Home Away From Home : Genevieve’s Renovation

After talking with friends endlessly about homes, condos, renovations etc, a friend told me to watch Genevieve’s Renovation on Netflix. Totally worth the 4 hours of binge watching the first season! I now know who I am going to call the minute I buy my first home (or the minute I have enough money to afford Genevieve). Watching the show you see interior designer, Genevieve Gorder, tackle combining her Manhattan apartment and the apartment next to hers to create the perfect home. Of course there were challenges, but she finds ways to make ends meet and they are stunning! My favorite room is definitely the home office, that table is so beautiful, and I fell in love with every door she put in this home! Well done! Head to Netflix (right now) to watch the transformation.

Home Away From Home : House of Harper

Blogger Caroline Harper Knapp of House of Harper has transformed a space that was once used as a dining room into a home base for her fashion blog. Knapp created her stylish room to house meetings, small photo shoots, and blogging! I am loving the bright bold contrast between the chairs and rug!

Home Away From Home : How To Display Art

One of my favorite home decor items is definitely art. Whether it is a great coffee table piece, a unique piece of furniture, or simply wall art. Here are some of my favorite ways to display art from Domaine Home.

1. Clipboards – Try a gallery wall of clipboards so you can switch artwork at any time and have a mood board feel.

2. Mobile – Create a fun mobile by hanging prints by string or from an object hanging.

3. Floating Shelves – Install floating shelves to have a crisp elegant feel to any living space. Also a great way to display your favorite coffee table books.

4. Open books – You’re favorite coffee table books always have the best photographs, why not display your favorite pages, open a book with the help of a candle or small object in front.

5. Bars – Show off your favorite magazine covers (Vogue) by hanging them on a suspended bar near your workspace!

6. Frames – Frames are always one of the best ways! They are a stand out on their own, so why not hang your favorite frames with pictures freely in them!

7. Washi Tape – One of my favorite ways is Washi Tape, frames can be expensive so why not create your own!

This amazing New York home was built in 1965 by Paul Mellon and his wife Bunny, designer of The White House Rose Garden and friend of Jacqueline Kennedy. Needless to say it has a phenomenal garden with reflecting pool…in Manhattan (what more could you ask for?).
