Style for St. Patrick’s Day …& Beyond

St. Patrick’s Day always puts the color green in the spotlight but this hue is always one of our favorites. Since green symbolizes nature, it is a great reminder that spring is on the horizon. It is typically part of a floral print which is great for traditional or country themed rooms. Green is also the easiest color on the eye and is said to improve vision. There is a reason people awaiting to appear on TV sit in “green rooms” to relax.

Green furniture and decor items are perfect for St. Patrick’s Day and beyond. Here are some of our favorite picks:

Style for St Patricks Day

3Armen Living Roxbury Tufted Arm Chair
4IMAX Corporation Finely Baroque Wall Mirror in Green

Get the Look: Supermodel Karlie Kloss’s NYC Apartment

Karlie Kloss Apartment

original source: Vogue magazine

When it was time for 21 year old supermodel Karlie Kloss to purchase her first home, she called in some expert help from famed designer Nate Berkus. Berkus worked closely with Kloss to create a space that reflected Kloss’s personal taste and youthful attitude. Together they created a sophisticated townhome in NYC’s West Village that is filled with unique and vintage finds and is currently on display in Vogue. While we might not be lucky enough to be a supermodel (or even to have a superstar interior designer on speed dial), we can still get inspired by the chic style of this space. Check out a few of our look-a-like picks below:

Top Picks: The X Leg Bench

The x leg bench packs a lot of design punch into a small package. The x leg bench can be used for a variety of purposes, as these rooms beautifully illustrate. A pair of x leg benches are a great stand-in for a larger bedroom bench. They also look great nestled underneath a console table in your foyer or hall. They can also be used instead of an ottoman or coffee table, or just as some extra seating to have on hand for entertaining.

X Leg Bench - Black and White

The black and white graphic print and large mirror give this pair of x leg benches some extra flair.


X Leg Bench - Leopard

This neutral vignette gets a boost from leopard print benches.


X Leg Bench - Beige

Pair two x benches in front of a chair or sofa in lieu of a coffee table.


X Leg Bench - Orange

Bright upholstery makes this set become a focal point underneath a white console table.


X Leg Bench - Bright Bedroom

Try placing a pair of x leg benches at the foot of a bed, instead of a large bedroom bench.

Trend Alert: Starburst Mirrors

Sunburst mirrors originally came into style during the reign of the Sun King, King Louis XIV of France. The King’s intense love of the sun and its powerful rays became the inspiration for many of the furniture design elements of the era. The style has remained popular until today and the distinct shape still provides an elegant design hit to wherever one is hung. During the mid-century, this mirror style fell into favor again and today’s sunburst mirrors more sharply resemble their mid-century counterparts than the gilded designs of yore. Here we have rounded up six of our current favorites but be sure to check the site to see the full collection of discount starburst mirrors.
