Welcome April Sponsor: Lulu + Georgia

I can't believe its April already and time to introduce my favorite things for the month. This month I am overjoyed to support the fab gals over at Lulu & Georgia. This is such an incredible source for those exotic accessories that you are looking for but can't find anywhere. Take for example the gorgeous rugs and pillows in chic exotic fabrics, they are everywhere right now. L & G has so many that I just have never seen. This gorgeous pattern is definitely show-stopping, I adore blue and pink together. 
I also have always needed a place to send clients to find the sheepskin rugs which are such a stylish look for any style...
What I also love is that they have a wide range of accessories that you just don't see anywhere else. It's hard when you feel like you keep seeing the same objects over and over in homes. I love bright, bold and really unique pieces that give a little character to your space. 
P.S. If you want to buy something L & G have given Thedecorista readers a discount code.
put in DECORISTA20 at checkout.

Welcome Sponsor...Live. Like. You.

Live. Like. You.
I am beyond excited to welcome sponsor Live. Like. You. An amazing online home furnishings boutique run by Jill Sorensen on Marmelade Interiors. After I purchased these lovely greek key shams and matching duvet for my apartment, I fell so hard for this charming shop.
They have everything that is in style and on trend, easy to order and buy it all in one big swoop. 
I also love that you can shop your style, such a great feature and of course I love the doors! 
Here are a few things I love...


While I am here in New York for the Thanksgiving holiday and apart from most of my family in Texas, I can't help but want to spend this black friday shopping it up. This year my newest fetish is shopping on FAB. First and foremost I am always on the hunt for affordable artwork for clients and Fab always has great finds. Here are a few pieces I have my eye on...
After finding the things I need for clients, I think FAB is such a perfect place to get gifts for those that I love the most. They always have cute, unique finds that make a thoughtful and fun gift. 
My aunts will adore this fab chalk cheeseboard, and my sweet cousin in art college will love this marilyn mac sleeve. This cute mint phone is perfect for my friend who is constantly on her phone, and the empire state iphone case is for my tech guy. Who wouldn't love a few pink heart office organizers or a shower curtain fit perfectly for a Francofile? like moi

Since I have been apartment dreaming, I have already started shopping around for my new furnishings and my heart is leaning toward modern pieces. Of course I will always love my vintage and glamorous furnishings but throwing a little modern in the mix never hurt anybody. 
So, I was delighted to be introduced to FASHION FOR HOME, a lovely source for fabulous + fashionable furnishings. (say that a few times...) Not only do they have art, lighting, sofas, chairs but even a few traditional looking pieces, like this gorgeous secretary desk that I am seriously considering. Mix it up with a glitzy chandelier and a few modern pieces and you are set. 
or maybe a little something like this...

Welcome May Sponsor...Decorator Archives

If you are like me then you loooooove Chinoiserie. I especially love the look of it in wallpaper, it really is one of my favorites. However, most of my clients are afraid to go all the way but they do love the look of a panel or two in a room. So, I am so excited about this new resource, DecoratorArchives. It literally has become my new favorite place to get this style at more affordable prices...
The selection is ridiculously good, there are all sorts of looks to choose from. So, if you are looking for a dash of sophistication, frame one of these prints for some serious style. 
I especially like the animal collections like flamingos and cheetahs...

WELCOME SPONSOR: Storkie wedding stationary

Just a few weeks ago I was maid of honor in my sister/besties wedding and now another one of my girls in prepping to walk down the isle. One thing I know is that I need to always be prepared to answer questions and help make final decisions as I am usually the go to for decor. 
Wedding save the dates and invitations are always the first thing to come and set the theme/tone of the wedding day...so they have to be perfect. Thank goodness for Storkie! Seriously, their online selection of wedding invitations has saved my life....

They have the perfect look for every style of every bride, event if she isn't trying to be too fussy.
I am loving this wedding shower invitation as I usually am the one to do these sorts of things.
I love the look of chic illustrations.
My bestie who is about to tie the knot is more of a modern bride, we are thinking lots of black in her wedding and I love this lace invite...
I also find myself in love with letterpress wedding invitations. There is something very romantic and elegant about them, don't you think?

Welcome Sponsor: ZGallerie

As the holidays grow closer I am getting so excited to have family in to visit me in NYC. So naturally, I just can't resist adding a few little accessories here and there to pep up my pad. Where I always turn...why ZGALLERIE of course! They are always on the cutting edge of design trends so when I need something last minute, they are always a great source.
Because most of my apartment is grey, black and white, I fell instantly for this chevron ottoman, its perfect for extra seating. I also love this Dynasty Mirror, it adds a touch of modern chinoiserie.

And when It comes to holiday decorating, I would go for a few sparkly things...

For the people that I cherish (and maybe for myself too) I'd love to snap these bits + baubles up too.

Saturday Sponsor Post: Heady Bed Headboards

I'm always looking for great headboards. Most of them can be quite expensive and not exactly what you want. So when the sweet girls over at Heady Bed sent me their portfolio, I knew I had to take a second look. I was blown away...these girls are genius, they have bridged the gap between expensive headboards and DIY by customizing modern upholstered headboards. Not to mention, they are at a super great price point, too! 

Check out their portfolio...
