Decorating with denim

Just as it does in our wardrobe, denim goes with everything. You can dress denim up or dress it down; it always seems to work. So whether your interior is a seaside cottage, eclectic mix or you simply need something new for a children's room, denim may just be the fabric for you.

Tip: Ralph Lauren paints offers a specific "Indigo Denim" paint technique to achieve this look. Find out more here.

Comfy couches

These soft, lovely couches are so inviting and look so comfortable.  The fluffy pillows and relaxed fabrics really appeal to me.  Of course the adorable dog in picture 2 makes my heart melt!

Friday night lights

Something about twinkle lights really makes me happy!  They add lots of charm and warmth to an outdoor space.  Happy Friday and enjoy your weekend.

Malibu home crush

I love the beach and I love homes decorated with natural and blue tones.  This is perfect!

This lovely home is in Mailbu, California and was designed by Madeline Stuart and photographed by Dominique Vorillion.  The guest room, in the last photo, is enough to make me stay a LONG time!

Decorating with a flat screen TV

Finally — an end to huge furniture pieces attempting to hide the television!  We couldn't pay someone to take our old armoire away and after installing our flat screen TV on the wall it really opened up the space and made the room feel much more spacious.

In the examples above you notice that the TV can be the center of attention or hidden between books and shelves.  Either way I love the clean slate and clutter free look.
