Now that we are fully into Winter I find myself loving the color palette right out my window. I went for a walk with my girls last weekend and found myself inspired by the pale yet comforting color palette around us. It's gray, white with a touch of wood accents. This all feels warmed up by the light that burst's through the trees or in the windows. All these rooms need is a hot cup of chai tea, wool socks and a good book.

I just gave this family room design in New York an update. I have been working with the client to take their ideas and blend them together for a cohesive look. They made several furniture selections on their own. They weren't sure how it would all fit and go together. They contacted me to review their ideas and get some guidance before making those final purchases. That is what is so great about Decorator in a Box you can go at your own pace and bounce your ideas off of me. Sometimes utilizing me to select the right sofa pillows is all it takes. I'm always here to answer questions no matter what stage your at. Here's a peek at their updated design.

I have been busy buttoning up designs right up until the holiday. I just had to give you a sneak peek of this L.A. Nursery I shipped a few weeks ago.

I take the time to gather your inspiration and ask important questions. I want to know your thoughts for the space. Each design is created with your personal style and budget in mind. That was the case with this gender neutral nursery in L.A. The client lives in a modern Mid-Century home. They had some existing art and furniture they wanted to be sure and incorporate into the space. Once I had all this information I created a first draft design for the client to review. They requested a few changes that I made before mailing the final presentation and box. I can already envision this family enjoying the room with their new little bundle.

It's cold outside and for some of you there is major snow globe effect happening out your window. Embrace Winter and make your home warm. Take this time to slow down a bit. Warmth is also a state of mind and not just the temp on the thermostat. Here are three ways I add a feeling of warmth to my home. It's all about createing that cozy vibe. These tips will get you in a mood of comfort, wellness and contentment.
#1 Tea Lights
Next time your at Target or the Dollar Store purchase several glass votive holder and tea light candles. As soon as Winter hits I place several on my fireplace mantel. I also like to add some green garland to bring nature and that winter smell inside.
#2 Candles in the Fireplace
If you have a wood burning fireplace like me you know it's not always easy to have a fire. I pulled these LED candles out of my Master Bathroom and placed them in the fireplace. Even though we don't have a fire every night the candles still create that sense of warmth. I clipped some spruce from my garland outside to add a little bit of Winter nature vibes around the candles.
#3 Blankets + Books + Yuletide Log
My favorite way to create a feeling of warmth is with a good old Youtube Yuletile log. As soon as it get's dark I Chromecast one on the TV before I start dinner. Throw down your favorite blanket with some books and your in for a cozy night. Don't forget the hot cocoa and to play your favorite Winter Spotify playlist in the background.
I hope these simple tips have your feeling and enjoying all that Winter brings. Does your home need a little more than candles? I can help you with a custom Decorator in a Box. Email me and tell me about your project. I will create a custom interior design that meets your specific needs. This can all be done from the comfort of your computer.

Happy Small Business Saturday! Thank you so much to all my old, new, future and my favorite return clients. When I started Decorator in a Box 8 years ago I didn’t know if creating custom designs via mail and email would work. There were only a few others doing it at the time. I have to give a special thanks to Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge. She single handedly launch Decorator in a Box with her blog editorial. You all made my dream a reality. In my 18 years of doing interior design I have watched it evolve in so many ways. I look forward to continuing to make interior design accessible to all whatever your budget or location. I’m forever grateful.

Often times my clients just need help pulling a room together with art, accessories and small furniture. That was the case with this client in Seattle, Wa. They had a sectional, end tables and pillow that worked. It was just time to update and add a new chair, art, rug, lamp and accessories. The client emailed me her thoughts and current photos of the room. I then sent back a custom flat rate design quote. Within a few days I sent them a detailed shopping list and vision board. With a few design selection this room will have a major update.
