a whole new store

we kicked off the new cameron village store with a party friday for friends and family. i was lucky to share the night with lots of special people who have supported furbish for 5 years now. big thanks to shannon and jake from capital club 16, dj joe bunn, white whale mixers, party reflections in raleigh, kelly from moon & lola and gary meyer.  follow furbish on instagram for more peeks into the new store this week.

a basement hangout gets a hefty makeover

i worked with a fun client on a dumpy basement that was in desperate need of a dose of freshness.  you'll find i was able to sneakily use a lot of the original things from the room by giving them a fresh coat of paint, moving them around, or just giving them some friends to hang with.  you get extra style points if you can spot the items that made it through the makeover.

the room only has one window, but that didn't stop me from painting it dark brown.  i'm sure you've heard you shouldn't paint a small or poorly-lit room a dark color, but guess what.  paint doesn't change size or the number of windows.  if the room is cozy, go with cozy.  make it a den.  make it a nook.  dark brown did that here, and by adding a beautiful icey-blue sectional, we brought the contrast up and kept the room lively.

the striped jute rug from dash & albert is a workhorse, and the cowhide ottoman from room & board is a staple i use with sectionals.  pillows are from furbish - john robshaw and a few one-of-a-kind vintage textiles.  the moroccan blanket is anthropologie and the desk lamp is west elm.

times two design slag glass lamp

one of my favorite details in the new guest room is a the slag turquoise glass lamp by times two design.  i love an organic touch in a room and while i usually try to stay away from glam, this lamp seems more curiosity and natural than over-the-top and showy.  i tend to switch my lamps out to acrylic bases because it looks lighter, so it's a plus that lauren renfrow's line of lamps comes embellished with acrylic finials and bases.

there are so many other gems (literally!) in her line, including gorgeous home accessories, pillows and lighting.  you can find a list of nationwide retailers here.

time for a change: a new guestroom

peacock is the new pink.

i was feeling antsy, and had been sitting on this gorgeous suzani for months, wanting to design a room around it. when i found the amazing yellow rug, i knew i had to keep this plan i had cooking for myself. it wasn't much to change - i had the room painted, changed the bedding and brought in the rattan headboard, but it's a brand new world in the guest room. a little more polished than the pink but equally as eye-catching.
