With my fiance Sam moving in to my townhouse soon, we have been working on the decor of certain shared spaces to make it less "me" and more "us." Thankfully, he has a pretty good design sense and our tastes aren't too different! At the same time, he has been gracious enough to let me keep a few of my favorite spaces decorated more feminine (aka pink). For instance, I have a reading nook in my bedroom where I love to sit and peruse coffee table books and magazines, and hunt for design inspiration. So when Lulu & Georgia offered to help me spruce up my favorite reading nook for the new year, how could I resist?
First up, I added this chic "glam" print to my gallery wall. I love that it has a minimalistic feel and includes a pink bow - it fit perfectly with the girly feel I have going on in my gallery wall.
Next, I added these Chandani Chevron throw pillows and the Florence Throw Blanket in sky blue to my chairs:
And what reading nook spruce up would be complete without the addition of a fab coffee table book? I couldn't resist purchasing Vreeland Memos: The Vogue Years , about past Vogue editor Diana Vreeland and her infamous witty memos.
Vreeland rarely held meetings and communicated with her staff and photographers through memos dictated from her office or Park Avenue apartment. The book includes 250 pieces of Vreeland's personal correspondence including letters to Cecil Beaton, Horst P. Horst, Norman Parkinson, and Cristobal Balenciaga. I love reading through the memos and imagining what life must've been like for a legendary magazine editor. The book is the perfect addition to my "favorite coffee table books" stack.
I love how the addition of only a few small, well-designed pieces can bring new life to a space. All of the accessories I added from Lulu & Georgia totaled less than $250!
