As a designer, writer, and entrepreneur, I’m obsessed with anything that is luxury, unique, or glamorous! I have a keen eye for style and love sharing all my ideas, muses, and projects with the rest of the design world! I love to travel along with Sophie, my mini Schnauzer whom I take on all my great adventures.

Who knew such a design favorite could make a splash in 2013! The No.14 chair also known as the bistro chair makes a stylish and classic choice of seating for your home, garden, and patio. I’ve never come across a piece of furniture that brings with it such a European aroma that instantaneously flips a modern decorated home to a Parisian café fantasy.
The chair was originally designed by Michael Thonet and introduced all the way back in 1859, that’s 154 years ago! He used a unique steam bending technology that required him years to perfect. The affordable price and simple design became one of the best-selling chairs ever made and even won a gold medal at the Word Exposition in Paris. Now a favorite among designers the No.14 is showing up everywhere, take a look:

Today I’ve decided to cover a tricky topic that hasn’t yet been brought up on our blog: choosing the right window treatments for your home. One of the easiest ways to do this is to keep in mind the shape, style, and purpose of your overall window. Are you looking for privacy, natural light, or simply want a pretty curtain for decorative purposes?
If you are thinking about preventing light from coming in while maintaining your privacy, blinds may be your best bet. For decorative purposes, they don’t do much but can be easily covered with an additional window treatment like a curtain with fringe trim, a sheer panel of lace, roman blind, or café curtain. Keep in mind that your window coverings should not only be decorative, but practical as well.
Try layering your overall look starting with a shade, blinds, or a simple curtain panel. Then to top it off, add heavy drapes hung from a sturdy curtain rod. If you want a more seamless and sleek look, roller blinds have always been my favorite. I love how they flawlessly blend in with your whole window and are practical without taking away from the architecture and view.
