Love this Living Room! So much green....my favorite color.
Her Holiday decor is so simple and stunning at the same time.
How about the christmas balls attached to the oversized boxwood wreath?
Or the shimmering reindeer hanging out on that statement coffee table?
Want to know what Anne's favorite gifts to give for the Holidays are? None other than the sparkling Mercury Glass Candleholders, (shown bottom right in the photo above) available at Tonic Home.

A different page for each month makes these Botanical Letterpress displays exciting from January to December. Little Tree Press is an adorable company out of Virginia with a unique eye for creating interesting personal stationary. Each piece is thoughtfully designed and printed by hand. Now that is "attention to detail"!

If visiting charity showhouses could be considered a hobby, then it would be one of mine. We recently visited the Mayfair Showhouse, benefitting The Spring of Tampa Bay. This tudor-style mansion was the site of the 1945 wedding of Florida legislator Sam Gibbons and Martha Hanley.
What a wonderful event for a worthy cause and a chance to showcase some extremely talented designers in Florida.
While strolling through this fabulous home, we came across one of our very own favorite products from Arteriors Home. Take a look at the black Lola side table. Looks absolutely sleek and modern next the traditional side chair.
Most photos to come from the historic home!
I'm so glad wallpaper is back! Just ran across this new wallpaper in Architectural Digest called Mahandi from Carolyn Ray.
The flurry of Ginkgo leaves is fascinating. It is shown in the "pagoda" color, which is a soothing blend of gold, gray and bronze. It is inspired by golden monks' robes and reddish Burmese roads.
I'm already thinking of all the wonderful places it could go. For fun, I picked out some of our fabulous pieces from Tonic Home and placed them against the wallpaper, just to get a feel for how it would look. Take a look below.
How about the Rittenhouse Pendant in a room with this wallpaper? Or the Vivien Mirrored Desk anchored by our pair of Ceramic Foo Dogs? What a refreshingly modern take on a theme that's been around for hundreds of years!

THE CHILL IS ON ...
Fall is in full swing and so are some fun new looks for your interior space. New for autumn are colors like cinnebar and seaweed. Check out these square garden stools. The shape and metallic hue make them very right now.
In need of a small house warming gift? How about these minature monkey bookends? They're definitely big on style.
A hot trend this season is copper & brass. You remember brass? The long forgotten metal that was so yesterday for many, many years. Well it's back!
It's back in a big way in the the form of lamps, bar carts, and coffee tables.
So if you were ready to rip out all your brass hardware, you might want to hold off. It's come full circle!
All products can be found at http://www.tonichome.com/
(Copper coffee table coming soon!)

Natural and Sleek: A Winning Combination!
As the world gets more chaotic and frightening, many are seeking calmness and tranquility in their homes. A growing trend this season continues to be organic and natural products to help keep us grounded. And nothing looks better with virtually every style of home decor than natural wood. As we noticed at the Atlanta Market, the key this season is to mix it up with wood tones, textures and shapes.
From coffee tables, side tables and decorative accents; wood is everywhere, and the chunkier the better.
Driftwood, limed oak, pine; it can all work together in one space. But if you don't want to start completely over and just want a touch of wood, try these solid decorative balls for a lonely corner or in a foyer.
Even "tree trunk" lighting is taking root in home design, like this lamp from Arteriors (32 h). The best part about the organic vibe is it goes with all styles of decor; contrast it with metal and mirrors, and now you've got instant high style!
