Its a new year, 2018! Out with the old in the new! This year I have decided to blog about “how to” as well as still sticking with adding Fashion Design to the mix.

Accessories, can either make or break a space, an outfit or in this case your cocktail table. In this blog I am going to show you “how to” design a simple table top.

First thing, decide what you want to feature. Is it flowers, books, candles? What is your focal point? In my option fresh flowers make me happy, so for me fresh flowers are a must on my table. I want to display them in a small vase. I have chosen this one from Michael’s . You want nothing too tall unless you are going to have long stem flowers. Of course my favorite flower are Sunflowers, but in this case I have chosen Peonies! (most girls favorite flower).  Then pick a favorite candle, mine is Brentwood by Hudson Grace. I always like add a decorative box, one of my favorite type is Faux Shagreen from William Sonoma. I just love how simple and the texture is.  Now you can put these items on a tray or you can just have them just sitting on the table. I like to have everything simple and clean so of course I would have a tray. I have chosen this tray by West Elm is because I love how simple and having a mirror bottom can bring light to your space especially if you have the candle burn. Of course I could not leave these books out of my space. I love fashion and why not have some fashion books such as Chanel, Prada,  and  Louis Vutton. You can choose whatever book you would like, it could be art, travel, photography. You want to create this space that is to you, to your taste. Pretty soon, when you start to put all these together this is what you have created.

This creates a simple yet clean accessories for your table. Make sure that when designing your accessories, that it does not get to cluttery. My motto is create simple, live grand.

Color Blocking

Colour-BlockingColor blocking, one of my favorite types of fashion and interior out there. It is so easy to color block your fashion. It is either one color at a time, for example…pants hot pink or turquoises. Shirt…Orange or Yellow. Jacket. Navy Blue or Red. Simple as that, and of course wedges for summer time with some really cute nail polish.

Looking around color blocking is all around, sofas pillows, fashion, shoes, paint jewelry, accessories, here are some of my favorite color blocking in fashion : (all images are from google images)

Gold. What comes to mind when I think about gold…Money, Royalty, Sophistication, Power, Wealth. As growing up I never liked the metal yellow gold, now that I am an adult I love the metal yellow gold. Gold is used in modern day technology, fashion, jewelry and Interior Design. One of the hottest trends in todays Interior Design world is Gold and Black. One of the most sophisticated glam essence of Interior Design. Mostly Black and Gold Interiors were of the Art Deco era. Think Great Gatsby. Lavish black tie parties just screaming sophistication. In todays world we can see Black and Gold Interiors. (all Images Google) I have shown some of my favorite Black and Gold Items ranging from Fashion, to Interior Design.
