Garden Party

Garden Party from Layla Grayce

Escalate your average barbecue by adding unique decor and swanky treats—guaranteed to create the backyard bash of the season! Here are a few pro tips to get your party on:

  • Find chic invitations that include a fun dress code like sundresses and Kentucky Derby-style hats (yay!) Who doesn’t love to dress up?
  • Assemble an array of artisan hors d’oeuvres arranged beautifully on the John Acrylic Serving Tray. Summer recipes focused around watermelon, cucumber, and fresh tomatoes make for festive treats.
  • Serve up style with a vintage-inspired bar cart complete with signature cocktails. Try mint juleps with a twist or a refresher with fruit-infused ice cubes in a personalized monogrammed glass such as the Rocks Basic Personalized Set.
  • Add a cigar bar for a level of sophistication alongside freshly grilled crab cakes for the main dish.

Momentarily pull yourself away from the flamingo pool floats and pineapples to shop our Memorial Day over this long weekend and plan your garden party now!

The Editor’s Guide to: Mixing Prints

We’re noticing a pattern. Literally. Almost every time we see lust-worthy interior design photos (check out some of our favorites on our Pinterest!), you can almost guarantee an eclectic blend of prints in jazzy colorways and unique styles. Straight from the editor’s desk, founder Wendy Estes drops in to share her industry insight on one of the trickiest tactics in interior design: mixing prints.

The Editor's Guide to Mixing Prints from Layla Grayce

Mix your prints effortlessly by choosing a theme that represents you. This nautical mix would be the perfect pairing for a maritime lover or to bring your vacation spot home with you. Balance a perfect mix with stripes in coordinating colors with nautical-themed patterns and designs that share similar hues for foolproof style.

The Editor's Guide to Mixing Prints from Layla Grayce

If you’re designing a room by color, start with a bold statement-making piece in a fun print or bright shade and use it as a focal point for the rest of the space. For example, this bold Sugarboo Designs art print’s abstract print lends fanciful flair with blue, green, yellow, and pink—the perfect palette for inspiring the rest of your space.

The Editor's Guide to Mixing Prints from Layla Grayce

Here’s where your favorite color makes its debut. Insert your personality with a soothing neutral like gray, black, or tan and go bolder with patterns. Never fear mixing stripes with abstract prints and dimensional patterns—each item will coordinate by color in their own unique way. Five to ten shades of gray? Totally encouraged!

The Editor's Guide to Mixing Prints from Layla Grayce

What’s your style? French country? Art deco? Globally-inspired bohemian? Chinoiserie chic?

Offer up your personality by mingling statement-making prints by style for lighthearted appeal. Think of leopard print as a neutral or pick unexpected pieces in two-tones instead of a print with many differentiating colors. Go daring or keep it simple–after all, the beauty of this decorating style is that it’s all about you!

That ‘70s style

Farrah Fawcett’s hair, disco fever, and leather everything. Our wistfulness for ‘70s style has us rallying for the revival of the grooviest of vibes. This far-out trend was recently featured in Elle Decor, showcasing one of our favorite spring items: the Flora Play Tent. With a hippie floral print and room for fun, this space effortlessly delivers playful panache!

The ‘60s and ‘70s are back! We’re totally nostalgic for this endlessly cool era and the return of hip colors and bold flower prints. In fashion as well as home decor, this trend reemerges with bright trippy wallpaper, fabric accents, and full floral outfits with huge statement-making blooms. Get your groove on with these styles and revive the serene yet attention-grabbing energy of this era that’s making a major comeback for 2015.

To master this fun trend, try laying a bold foundation with the Goa Pink Hand Tufted Wool Rug by Surya. With an eye-catching retro pattern and a swirl of spirited blooms in a vivacious colorway, rooms get a major revamp with a decade-centric pop of groovy style. To accent more subtly, try a mirror with a unique shape or texture, a brightly-hued side table, or an evocative chandelier with floral touches.
