Kendra Scott’s Home Décor

Hello design lovers! Natasa here! Recently I had the pleasure of hosting an event at Kendra Scott’s Brookfield location and I wanted to share some of it with you. We called it “Jewels for your Home”!

 

If you love fashion, you probably own a piece of jewelry from Kendra Scott. However,  did you know that they have home accents as well? Their latest addition to the home decor is an amazing candle collection. These candles are luxurious in fragrance as well as looks. Available Here

 

 

I had so much fun styling this coffee table setup with candles along with their trays, frames and of course jewelry boxes.

 

   

These boxes and trays are made out of natural stone and will bring a touch of glam to any space. It truly is jewelry for you home!

 

I absolutely love Kendra’s story and their dedication to the community the each of their stores brings. They are philanthropic, friendly and oh so fashionable!I am so happy to work with our Milwaukee Kendra Scott ladies, located in the Corners of Brookfield.

5 reasons you should be excited about the new IKEA coming to our town!

 

Hello Wisconsin!!! Chances are you have seen the new blue and yellow sign standing proud on I-94. If you are like me, you have made at least a couple trips to Chicago’s IKEA every time you moved or remodeled. Now that we’re getting our very own IKEA on May 16th, I wanted to share why you need to be excited about it!

 

  1. Contemporary Vibe – In the last few years, Milwaukee got several furniture stores that are a much better option than our usual puffy recliner retailers… Stores such as Crate and Barrel and West Elm made it a bit easier to find modern looks locally. With addition of IKEA, we now have a place with that Euro-contemporary vibe. Scandinavian design is very much on trend right now and IKEA definitely has much to offer in this category.

 

  1. Mix it up – Think of it as mixing Christian Louboutins with a cute dress from H&M or Zara (Btw, when are we getting a Zara store in Wisconsin? )… Pairing a beautifully made classic sofa with some cute pillows from Ikea is a great way to mix high and low cost items. IKEA’s pieces are designed to make a statement and add a trendy touch to your home. Don’t be afraid to be bold with your choices… Get that mid century inspired chair you’ve been thinking of and mix it with your classic office desk. It creates so much visual interest and depth.

 

  1. Change it up – Because of IKEA’s affordability and accessibility you can change things up often. IKEA has amazing finds that are very trendy and will make your home look fresh… but when those trends pass, you can easily go back for something new or different! And who doesn’t love to shop for more? These trendy hexagon shape mirrors are a great way to brighten up an entryway, or even add it above a headboard for an interesting wall art.

 

  1. Customizable FurnitureIf you’ve ever used Pintrest and I know you have, you have seen at least a few IKEA Hacks.  IKEA has some pieces that are very minimalistic in design…. I personally love the minimalistic look, but if you love that rose gold hardware, or that navy blue dresser, go ahead… paint it navy and add that bling to it! There are also pieces that, with a little imagination, can be used differently. For example these bookshelves are actually spice racks… I painted them white and used them in my daughter’s room for her baby books. Once she outgrew those shelves, we repurposed them in the playroom as art supply storage!

 

 

  1. Organizing in StyleI cannot talk enough about IKEA’S amazing organizing tools. I believe that well designed home also needs to be a well organized home. For a Pintrest worthy pantry, check out their IKEA 365+ collection and mix it up with some baskets and voila, you got your self a functional and organized space.

So get ready Milwaukee… IKEA will officially be open on May 16 ! Mix things up and add some European flare in your home. And if you are intimidated by all the options, you know who to call for help!

5 Modern Fall Décor tips, without a drop of orange

Happy fall to all! We have approached the season of pumpkin spice lattes; sweaters and chunky scarves and we are excited for all things fall. I wanted to share some ideas for autumn décor without using the expected colors of fall. If you’re like me, you love neutrals and cooler tones and it’s ok to stay true to your style even during pumpkin season.

  1. Homey sign – You can evoke a feeling of warmth without using a drop of orange or burgundy color. Find a sign that has a message of home or family,  it will give your décor a warmer aesthetic.

 

     2. Greens – Instead of oranges, use deep greens for color. I am a huge advocate of real flowers and plants and           really wanted to use eucalyptus for this décor, however I could not find any, so pssssst… don’t tell anyone, these are faux eucalyptus branches from Hobby Lobby. I used 10 branches to create a fuller effect.

 

  1. Pumpkins – I used a combination of real white and green pumpkins as well as some decorative pumpkins in neutral tones. Try to have several different sizes to create more visual interest.

 

  1. Tray Centerpiece – I like using a decorative tray as a nest for my coffee table or dining table centerpiece. It creates more interest and it’s easy to remove once you’re ready to serve dinner. For this particular décor I used some Spanish moss to add more texture to the centerpiece.

 

 

     5. Neutral Elements – add some wooden pieces, fur or leather for a cozy feel.

 

Hope you enjoy this neutral but fun fall décor.

Until next time,

Natasa
