home sweet home

I spend a lot of time in my living room—eating, blogging, Bravo TV-watching—so when my cozy-but-bland throw started to feel stale, I didn't hesitate to replace it. A brighter, lighter style is a great mood booster. This Racked roundup introduced me to some great home decor sites and helped me find the right piece for my style and budget: a bluish-teal striped cotton throw that pops against my chestnut micro-suede sofa (I would've loved to wrap up in this, but controlled myself). A byproduct of the search was, of course, a whole new wish list. Furbish and Zara Home are favorites for a quick and punchy update; West Elm and Anthro for bigger investments. Here's what I'm targeting next: A modern pillow. Elegant flatware that's so much prettier than my hand-me-down set. Tumblers with an intricate design and touch of shine. A reflective stone for depth and color. A tray to organize remotes, coasters, matches and pens that collect on the coffee table. A textured pitcher. Pick up Rachel Zoe's new book, Living in Style, for tips on putting a personal spin on everything. I'm slightly obsessed with the designer—her style, her ambition and her conviction. And after clicking through these fun facts I'm for sure watching Almost Famous tonight. Can you believe I've never seen it? I KNOW. Have a great day!
