Gregory’s brilliant color themes make a bold statement in any room. This beautiful bedroom uses blue and white hues throughout for a soft and sophisticated look, while bright green creates a contemporary aesthetic in this work space.

We love how prints bring this otherwise neutral living room to life! Juxtaposing a classic striped rug and dazzling geometric patterned furniture, Gregory infuses this space with modern character.

Adding colorful accents to a neutral palette can offer the same stylish effect as a full room makeover. Touches of pink say it all in these white spaces; fuchsia candles and a deep pink settee offer a hint of glam, while soft pink throw pillows and floral wallpaper offer fresh, inviting accents.

Gregory often combines elements of different time periods to give spaces a unique personality. Traditional brass hurricanes delightfully complement this dining room banquette’s contemporary gold detailing, while a retro yellow sofa provides an unexpected juxtaposition to the living room’s classic desk and elegant drapery.

Graphic wallpaper can go one of two ways: create a fantastic impact, or be entirely too overwhelming. It all depends on the execution of the entire space. In this bedroom, Gregory succeeded in making the wallpaper a fantastic focal point by furnishing the gorgeous space with soft, neutral colors that blend instead of compete. The result: an irresistible space as cozy as it is effortlessly sophisticated.

Emmy Fashion for the Home!

Last Sunday we tuned into the 65th annual Emmy Awards and as we expected, the small-screen sirens brought some serious style this year! Although there were several stunners, we managed to narrow it down to three leading ladies. Here we show you how to translate their winning looks into award-winning decor!

Kerry Washington was recently named “World’s Most Stylish Woman” and for good reason! She looked positively radiant in her blush-toned Grecian gown from Marchesa. The breezy chiffon was sprinkled with rose blooms for a look of pure romance. This is a perfect palette to emulate in a boudoir. Think French vintage, a la Zentique Furniture’s Medallion Dining Chair in Natural Linen, and soft hues like ballet pink and washed sage. We love the elegant charm of all things Aiden Gray, and their French Scroll No. 4 Ballet Pink Pillow is key to nailing this look. What would a romantic retreat be without a gorgeous chandelier? Our Southport Sage Green Wrought Iron Chandelier perfectly mimics the floral motif of Kerry’s dress and will be a simply sweet finishing tough in your space.

Black and white will always be a classic combination in both fashion and interiors. So it’s no surprise Julianna Margulies turned to this fool-proof pairing for her big night out. With clean lines and a graphic floral, her dress has given this combo a modern lift! To bring this look home, try furnishings in sleek black lacquered finishes. We love the lines of the Bungalow 5 Jacqui Three Drawer Side Table and the gold pulls pack an extra punch of style. To tie in a graphic element, we recommend the Thomas Paul Zinnia Ebony Cream Tufted Wool Pile Rug. The over-sized print is a polished take on mod 60′s style, which we can never get enough of! Complete your look with a classic geometric print like our COCOCOZY Oxford Black Embroidered Pillow. Remember, whenever in doubt, stick to the basics and give them a little make-over for a fresh, updated look.

Newcomer Allison Williams has been turning heads wherever she goes and the red carpet is no exception. The brunette beauty wow’ed in a royal blue strapless gown from Ralph Lauren. She balanced the radiant hue with vintage gold cuffs and kept the rest simple. Take a cue from Allison and try our Worlds Away Emma Navy Dresser. The color is bold enough to make a statement, yet versatile enough to withstand the test of time. Like our muse, there is something regal about the design of Lili Alessandra Onasis Linen Navy Decorative Pillow. Complement your royal space with gold-leafed accents. We are especially taken by the Barclay Butera for Mirror Image Home Madison Mirror who’s Greek key design is the ultimate finishing touch to your design fit for a queen.
