Love For Nailhead Details!!

I don't know if it's the contrast of hard on soft or the mix of metal on fabric or wood but I love nailhead embellishments!! I recently bought a little brown leather storage ottoman with a nailhead design covering it and every time I look at it, it makes me happy. Love, love, love the look of nailhead details!! What do you think?

Making The World a Better Home: Happy Earth Day!

 

Approximately 4 million trees were lost in the destructive Texas wildfire in 2011. A massive collaborative effort is being undertaken by the Arbor Day Foundation, Texas A&M Forest Service, and Texas Parks & Wildlife. They launched the Texas Lost Pines Forest Recovery Campaign to restore and plant trees in Central Texas over the next 5 years.

Since 2008,  High Fashion Home and Arbor Day Foundation have made a commitment to plant one tree for every piece of furniture purchased at High Fashion Home. Thanks to all of our wonderful customers, over 44,000 trees have been planted towards the Lost Pines Forest Recovery Campaign. High Fashion Home might be just one store. But when working together with great people and incredible organizations, we can start making a difference.

As of March 31, 2014, High Fashion Home and the Arbor Day Foundation have committed to planting 70,031 trees around the world.

Houzz's - To Chop or Not to Chop

Last week, we received the huge honor of being featured in Houzz's Ideabook - To Chop or Not to Chop (pillows, that is)!!! First, THANK YOU, HOUZZ!!! :) Second, we wanted to share the Ideabook and some of the photos they featured.

For those of you that are not familiar with pillow chopping, it's literally lightly karate chopping the center of the top seam (or sometimes on the side) on your throw pillows. Chopping pillows has become a popular way to give pillows more shape and enhance their look on a sofa, chair or bed. Whether you yell "Hiya!!" when you do this is completely up to you. Enjoy, HIYA!!

Black and White

Has there even been a more perfect coupling than that of black and white? Black and white in a home works well just as black and white OR can give you a perfect background on which to build some color. Browsing black and white interiors, I found many great ideas and inspiration. Black and white will never go out of style.

Cheery Toronto Condo

When Marlie Waks wanted help designing the interior of her Toronto condo, she turned to her sister, Jessica, for help. Jessica Waks is the design editor for Style At Home so being that she knows Marlie better than anyone else AND lives in the interior design world, Jessica was the obvious choice. Marlie wanted color and feminine glam; she and Jessica worked together to create a vibrant, colorful and personal space. I believe they succeeded tremendously! Love it all!
