When I first heard wind of this fall’s trend for Baroque details, I was skeptical. My taste veers more toward the simple than the sumptuous; the unadorned than the opulent. But when I saw the runways’ elaborate offerings, I couldn’t resist the idea of working just a few Baroque touches into my home and wardrobe. After all, who says I have to worship at the feet of Louis XIV? Can’t I just tip my hat his way instead?

Catch a few of the Sun King’s rays with elements like scrollwork and metallic finishes; damasks and filigrees; jewel tones and medallion shapes. Pick one piece for subtle impact–perhaps a tone-on-tone pillow to swap out with your usual couch cushion–or haul in an entire palace’s worth of gilt goodies and play princess for a day!

Winter Skies

Winter Skies
As the days get shorter and shorter, shadows longer and longer, the chilly hues of winter afternoons can’t help but inspire. Greys, blues and silvers get a touch of blush and butter as the sun sinks lower in the sky. Sure it’s cold outside, but inside the beauty of a winter sky warms us to the core.

Get the look at home with Swedish-inspired furnishings as your base, then augment them using pieces with shimmering modern edge. Prevent things from feeling to chilly by layering throw pillows and a cozy throw, then slip into some sweet nothings and sip cocoa as the light slips under the horizon.
