Brilliant Bamboo: A Chic Coastal Touch

Natural elements, or even the appearance of natural elements, can always be counted on to bring character to your decor. Bamboo is a great example of that. It became very popular in the 1950s and has never gone out of style. It has a vintage flair that can be found in a variety of pieces, large and small, and transformed to suit different styles.

While real bamboo can be pricey, there are a lot of faux options on the market that look just as stunning as the real thing. If you find an old piece that has seen better days, all you have to do is spray paint it to turn it into decor that is chic and contemporary. The beautiful shape will remain no matter what you do to the facade.

Here are 10 inspiring examples of bamboo decor to give you some ideas.

Glamorous and Fabulous Faux Fur Ottomans

Looking to add a bit of glamour to your decor? Faux fur is one of the best ways to do just that. It’s a timeless element that looks chic and elegant and even brings some warmth to a space. It also provides some texture that will make your decor look more dynamic.

A clever place to incorporate faux fur is on an ottoman. Ottomans are very versatile pieces of furniture because they can serve as a foot rest, extra seating, and even a table (if you add a tray to it). They are useful and look great in just about any room in the home. And of course, they’re especially useful in small spaces.

A faux fur ottoman brings both style and function to a space. Here are 10 examples of how much of an impact this simple addition can make to your decor.

10 Rooms That Show the Stylish Impact of a White Brick Fireplace

A fireplace can always be counted on to bring charm and character to a space. There are tons of ways to personalize the look of one, but one of my favorite facades for a fireplace is the classic look of white brick.

White brick fireplaces combine the great textural element of brick while looking clean and streamlined. This is a perfect option if you have an old, outdated brick fireplace and don’t like the rich red or brown color. Painting them white is easy, affordable, and looks great in any home.

There is no style that a white brick fireplace can’t work with. Whether you want something modern and streamlined or cozy and rustic, you can’t go wrong with this look. It is also great for resale so if you are staging your home for sale and want to fix the eyesore of an old fireplace, paint it white!

Here are 10 inspiring examples of white brick fireplaces to show you the style and versatility of them.

Colorful Vignette Ideas That Are Full of Life

A vignette is a fantastic way to bring character to your home. There are so many directions in which you can go with one because it’s all about infusing your own personality and sense of style into it. What’s also fun is that you can change them up as often as you’d like since it’s easy to switch out pieces of decor. One easy way to make an impact with a vignette is with color.

A colorful vignette is eye-catching and makes an immediate statement. If you have a mostly neutral palette in your home, a vignette is a great spot in which to infuse one or two bold touches of color if you want to do something a little different. The best part? It’s easy to switch out the color if you get tired of it or want to theme it for the seasons.

Here are 10 inspiring and colorful vignette ideas that make a chic statement.

Designer Marc Jacobs is known for his unique and often outrageous style, but his home is a completely different matter. Surprisingly, it is very understated and even traditional in a lot of ways. The design is streamlined, the color palette neutral, and the furniture mostly modern mixed with some antiques.
