“Room dividers are versatile pieces that are decorative and functional. Using a room divider is an easy way to delimit a space and costs much less than building a new wall. I love this 1970s Pierre Frey one because of its beautiful tassel pattern, and I could use it in my dressing room to add a touch of romance to the morning dressing experience.

“I’m a huge Haring fan, and love the accessibility (and tenant friendliness) of these wall tiles. It’s a way to instantly add vibrancy to your home while paying homage to one of the greatest artists who ever lived.

“The Irish quilt is a great gift idea. I fell in love with some vintages for my farmhouse renovation. They are perfect for wall hangings, bedding and even for reupholstering furniture. If someone buys me one, I would be delighted. They are so pretty.

“You can never have enough storage, and because I like everything to have somewhere to go, a rolling utility cart is at the top of my list! I love the one from Yamazaki Home found on afternoon light. It’s simple in design, available in a universal white or black color, has three shelves to maximize storage, and is small enough to tuck away when needed.

An elegant rug

“The current rug I have doesn’t fit completely under the couch (a design sin). I found this rug to help out the same orange-on-orange tone between the couch and the Spanish tile – the sage rug would balance that out, giving it contrast, creating drama and keeping it warm and zen.I find that aside from painting, area rugs are the best way to transform a room, and it’s much easier than doing any DIY. I have also always wanted to shop at The citizenship but I never had the chance.

“I’m really into vintage display cases instead of built-in items right now. It offers the same amount of storage but is less permanent, making it easier to update a room’s functionality as needed. »

“I think one of the best gifts I could ask for this holiday season would be a rug from the Jonathan Adler x Ruggable collection. Upgrading your home doesn’t always mean doing a complete home makeover! Sometimes a change of decor can make a huge difference in making a space look completely different. The rugs in this collection are bold yet sophisticated. The neutrals in the collection add just the right amount of style without overdoing it, and I could definitely see them being effective in a future client project or my own beach house renovation.
