I’ve always thought that lighting is the jewelry of a room, which makes it one of the best ways to personalize your space with a design statement. Unique lamps can give your space that coveted “collected” look and shopping vintage is a great way to find them. A good table lamp can define a vignette, whether it’s beside your sofa or bed, or even in the kitchen or bathroom for glowy, soft accent lighting. I love using a pair of matching lamps for symmetry in a room, but one big statement lamp can be useful for dressing-up a less interesting piece of furniture to bring the style up a notch. In case you are interested in a little digital treasure hunt, I’ve curated some favorite vintage table lamps from Etsy to discover and shop below…

French designer and lifestyle guru Sarah Poniatowski’s former-studio-turned-home is a Parisian dream, with skylights and a living room window wall affording rooftop views of the city from the Right Bank. After her business outgrew the space, Poniatowski annexed the floor below and turned it into a colorful home for her family, giving her space to prototype new designs for her brand Maison Sarah Lavoine. This sun-drenched living room caught my eye with its serpentine sofa, patterned carpet, and teal accent wall. Shop the look below!

January is a great time of year to focus on your sleep quality! After all, it’s foundational to reaching any other New Year’s intentions or resolutions you’re considering. I’ve struggled sleeping well over the years, so I’ve got some pretty high standards when it comes to my bedroom and creating a great environment for sleep. Two of these essentials include my mattress and pillows that are key to (literally) supporting healthy sleep. I bought these essentials when I moved into my apartment last January, so after a full year with them, I knew I could share a solid review. Find out what affordable mattress and pillows I found online, and why I chose them below!

WILLIAMS PROJECT: POWDER BATHROOM DESIGN BOARD WITH HOUSE OF ROHL

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of House of Rohl. All opinions are 100% mine.

Cream and gold bathroom design by Amber Interiors on Thou Swell #bathroom #bathroomdesign #bathroomideas #homedesign

For the past couple of months, I’ve been working on a really fun client project here in Atlanta for a cute couple decorating their first home. We’ve been infusing their new-build house with style, personality, and a little color here and there. One of the places they knew they wanted to go in a bolder direction was in the powder bathroom – one of my favorite places to get playful with the design. I partnered with House of Rohl to bring the most beautiful brushed gold Riobel Parabola faucet and Victoria + Albert Kaldera sink to inspire this special space! See where the bathroom is starting and my design board for the design below.

STAR POWER IN A BOLD NASHVILLE HOME RENOVATION

A bold Nashville home tour with modern, organic decor for a Southern musician on Thou Swell #nashville #nashvillestyle #southernhome #southernstyle #homedesign #hometour #homedecor #homedecorideas #interiordesign(via Luxe, photography by Alyssa Rosenheck)

The stars aligned when Nashville-based designer Lindsay Rhodes and recent transplant Melanie Tigrett met and they realized their aesthetics were very much in tune. Rhodes brought a fresh, playful twist to this gracious Nashville forever home, using bold artwork and wallpaper to reflect the spirit of Music City. There’s a good dose of patina as well (this is the South after all), mixed with contemporary accents and some beautiful custom upholstery. Designed with entertaining in mind, the long banquette in the kitchen and pink tufted sofa in the living room are just beckoning for guests! See inside this home renovation below.
