Get the Look: Amber Interiors’ Dining Room

I truly haven't been able to get Amber's home tour out of my mind since we featured it back in August. The entire thing is lovely, but her dining room in particular is still tugging at my heart strings. It's just so vibrant and lovely, feminine yet...

Living Room Design Tips from Urban Grace

Though most people would agree that the kitchen is the heart of the home, I tend to think the living room is where it's at. I would willingly admit to being a comfort seeker at the best of times, and there's something about a plush couch and a cozy throw that can't be beat. And making the most out of ones...

Dining Room Design Tips from Urban Grace

The dining room will forever hold a special place in my heart. It's where families gather for Sunday dinner, stories are shared and wine is guzzled sipped until the wee hours. Though any ol' dining room will typically do, these events are made infinitely sweeter when surrounded by pretty. And the sweet girls at Urban Grace  are no stranger to pretty. SMP: Your favourite dining room you’ve ever designed? UG: I have always loved...

Master Bedroom Design Tips from Urban Grace

True story: I discovered Erika and her blog Urban Grace, chronicling her life and interior design projects, over 4 years ago and immediately pored through the ENTIRE thing in one sitting. My eyes were burning by the end, but the inspiration I felt while reading like a mad woman was unlike anything I had come across at the time. I've since held Erika in high esteem, and it's a bit of a...

Lark & Linen’s Go-To Paint Colors

As an interior designer myself, I'd be the first to admit that we're a finicky bunch. We each know what we like, when we like it and it's often hard, nary impossible, to convince us otherwise. There's no question that I have my favourite go-to paint colours; a select few that I use time and time again. And I thought it'd be fun to jump in and dish...

The Ultimate Throw Pillow Round Up, Under $50

I will be the first to admit that I have a strange obsession with throw pillows. I find that switching them around every once in a while keeps a room feeling fresh and new. And calms the inner designer in me who is forever looking to redecorate. So when I find a few that are gorgeous AND don't break the bank? Well, I consider that a really great day. 1. Braided Pillow: ...

Prepping Your Home for Fall

I don't know about you, but as soon as I feel that crispness in the air in and around this time each year, I'm immediately struck with the desire to buckle down and hibernate. I forgot how much I love the idea of cuddling under an oversized throw with a ginormous mug of tea. I thought it'd be fun to round up a few ways that you, too, can start preparing for the months ahead!

Stephanie’s Home Tour: The Inspiration

Today is such a fun day on SMP. Last week, we took a peek at Erin's apartment overhaul... and now we're back in action with our dear Stephanie. Stephanie is a Weddings editor and has more talent and taste in her pinky finger than most people I know combined. But, much like our beloved Erin, she's busy. Like, burning the midnight oil on a daily basis type of busy. And her sweet...

Erin’s Home Tour: The Inspiration

If you've read Style Me Pretty for any length of time you may have gotten to know some of our incredible SMP ladies. Erin - our AHHHMAZING Weddings Editor  - is like our It Girl. She's pure style and her taste is about as spot-on as it comes. But the girl is busy. Like really busy. And her perfect little Boston flat always seemed to take a back burner to her SMP work. That is, until last week. When we decided to give her apartment a...

Splurge or Save: The Living Room Edition

This series is by no means revolutionary, but the frugalista within me always gets really excited when I stumble across one (just me?!) I can't help it, I simply love a deal! I have to admit though, a few of these numbers are a no brainer in my eyes (umm save?!) Except for the couch. Have you ever sat on a Montauk couch? Because it's comparable to baby angels. Yep, it's that good and well worth every...
