Monochrome Décor

Oh how I’ve missed you, New Déjà Vu. Close to two years have gone by since my last post, so rather than fret over wasted time, let’s jump right back in the mix… first up, a glimpse of my new(ish) Brooklyn pad!

I wanted my bedroom to have a dark, moody feel, so I opted for deep gray walls (Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal) with gray furniture and linens. To keep the monochromatic look from falling flat, I added plenty of sparkle with silver trays, lucite and mercury glass lamps, a homemade jewelry display and healthy dose of mirrors.

Traditionally, the only accessory a staircase flaunts is a long carpet runner. Not anymore! With a bright stripe of paint, stencils, wallpaper or metallic trimmings, a standard staircase can be transformed into a bold style moment.

Nice throw pillows often break the bank, so I’ve rounded up my favorite picks—all priced at $40 or (way) less.

Sad Pats, Happy Spaces

This week, I’m experiencing something I could’ve done without: life in enemy territory following a hometown team Superbowl loss (for those of you who don’t know me, I’m a Bostonian who lives in Manhattan). And there’s going to be a parade, too?! Ick. So as a pick-me-up, I’ve rounded up a few interiors that are bright, vibrant, and happy—the complete opposite of the feelings evoked regarding the Pats.
