Simple touches of Tiffany blue create a stylish contrast against the home’s creamy yellow interior. The classic color makes a delightful pop against the crisp, white hue of the entryway bookshelf, while beautiful blue ornaments and gift-wrapped presents evoke the yuletide spirit. Maintaining a subtle tone, exquisite tapered candles and decorative napkins deliver hints of Tiffany blue to the the living room.

Looking for a new twist on your traditional holiday decor? Try bringing a little coastal glam to your season! We’ve taken a cue from Nicola’s stunning Summer Beach Christmas from the Pretty Blog, which was inspired by her childhood holidays near the South African seaside. Using a natural color palette inspired by beautiful sea oysters, she delivers eclectic touches to the home with stunning shells, gorgeous plants and more to tie together an unforgettable yuletide look.

Set on a neutral gray tablecloth, the beautiful dining room beach scene features a breathtaking DIY centerpiece. Cost-effective and chic, this seasonal accent delivers an earthy aesthetic with a texture-rich mix of nautical ropes, succulent plants, sea shells and twigs. To provide a simple contrast to the table’s focal point, she chose crisp, white dinnerware for an elegant polish.

We’re excited to introduce our Holiday Hostess series today! Throughout this season, we’ll be exploring fresh and unexpected new ways to decorate your tabletop for guests. When most of us think of fall parties at home, we tend to imagine cornucopias, turkey, warm cider and red and orange decorations. This November, however, we were ready for a new take, and found ourselves spellbound by this Mediterranean-inspired dining room. In captivating shades of white, beige and blue, this formal space’s intriguing tabletop decor sets the stage for a simple yet captivating dinner party.

In this stunning room, white dishes and linens lay the foundation for a stylish formal gathering, while white pumpkins add a touch of sophisticated fall nostalgia to each guest’s space. The designers boldly added blue and white pitchers and urns to the mix for a pop of color, while the shimmering silver tray and mercury glass vases make a dramatic impression at the bar and dining table.

We love all the sweet scallop detailing that has been popping up in home design lately. We adore it in its classic form, but we also love the bright and modern way scallops are being used in Trina Turk pillows and DwellStudio Bedding. Go big with a scallop-oriented furniture piece or choose an adorable home accent with just a hint of scalloping in its detailing. View our curated collection of scalloped furniture and home accents.

We love Samantha Pynn’s fresh, feminine style. Her ability to mix modern elements with classic staples creates a very livable space that’s still high on style. Samantha has been a fixture in the decorating world for the past 11 years – you can obsess over her work weekly on her current HGTV Canada series, Summer Home. We’re obsessed with pink at Layla Grayce, and we love the way Samantha scattered hints of this color throughout her own home. The rest of Samantha’s work is just as gorgeous. Check it out!

Just in the nick of time (when winter has gone on far too long), Spring arrives to lift our spirits. Add a dash, an accent, a splash of green to your interiors to instantly brighten your day, your room. For the daring, dive in with bold green walls or wallpaper for a major wow factor. If that’s too much commitment for you, dip your toes in by adding glorious green throw pillows or an area rug that can be rotated around when the seasons change. Trust us, you’ll feel much better with a daily dose of greens!

Moggit Girls: 5 Trends Gone Wrong

moggit - 5 trends gone wrong
Sure, we could do a ho-hum recap of the “Best Design Trends of 2010″, but we’re in the mood for something different, and Joy and Janet, the creative minds behind moggit are the perfect gals for the job. Their sassy, irreverent blog (tagline: the guilty pleasure of the decorating world) is one of our favorites, so in true moggit fashion, let’s hear from Joy and Janet and then let you vote on the worst of the worst!

Looking back on 2010, it seems to us that nearly everything was a ‘trend’. It seemed very trendy to be trendy. But if there’s one thing we love, it’s a good trend gone bad. And this year, there were a bumper crop of seemingly harmless trends that went off the rails…

HERE’S OUR TOP FIVE:

moggit

1. WALL TO WALL CARPET: So while we don’t necessarily mind a good layer of soft, plushy wall-to-wall carpet under our feet (especially on the bedroom!) we do draw the line at installing carpets– and layering them– in a bathroom. Are people still really doing this?

moggit

2. NATURAL WOOD: Three words for this one, folks– Enough. Is. Enough. Maybe it’s a chick thing, but there’s only so much natural wood (or in this case– plywood) that we can take in one room.

moggit

3. GOING GREEN: We want to be clear, here. We’re definitely all for being eco-friendly. We’re all saving the planet. Heck, we’re even all for this whole ‘bringing-the-outdoors-in’ thing– all of which can be encompassed in this ‘Going Green’ trend, but just not like this.

moggit

4. ECLECTICISM: So here’s the thing– when you embrace eclectic as a design style, you really have to know when to say ‘when’. For us, eclecticism is all about showing off your personal collections, your unique and favourite objects and putting them all together in a way that just works. Can we just say it’s really, really not about doing this.

moggit

5. INDUSTRIAL CHIC: Industrial chic– it’s a trend that been around for a while, and shows no sign of slowing down. The very words conjure visions of ultra-cool lofts, fab floors, and beauty in the very functionality of it all. But we have just one question– if we embrace industrial chic, can we please just be comfortable while we do it?
