Modern Modani

So recently I just moved and am in the process of decorating and if you know me, you know my style is all over.  From baroque, modern, classic, cape cod to industrial.  But decorating a home is much like getting dressed, in that our personal style is reflected. So I have been scouring the web in search of things that reflect my style and found great sites such as joss and main, wayfair, anthroplogie and Modani. Modani is chock full of modern, clean lines with a touch of baroque such as their collection of sofas.. After scrolling the site I came across some great pieces for a living room that I feel captures my personal style. Clean, minimal and eclectic with pops of color. That to me is what drives an outfit or room decor, that pop of color or texture that drives and ties the whole thing together.  Kinda makes you go hmmmmmm

I started with the Bergamo leather sofa in gray and white. If you don’t know gray is pseudo-neutral and a great base color. I then paired it with the modern glass table with chrome trim, because it gives that modern, clean aesthetic that I like. Keeping with the clean leather look I found the Barcelona chair that ties into the sofa and the table. But to add some dimension and je ne sais quoi I like to add some red. Red will give that POP and the gray is a great basic to be against. I also love skulls and found a great aluminum print featuring it and using red. Now to really give that edge, I found the lola red chair to act as the focal piece of my room. And according to Modani it takes any room from drab to FABAHULOUS!

Check out how I pulled them all together in Polyvore and let me know your thoughts.

Rings With Style

So recently I discovered an online auction site called invaluable.com and came across their fantastic selection of ringsAfter scrolling for a bit through simple bands to antique art deco statement rings I came across a stunner. You can filter to stone, metal, and style to better determine what you might be looking for. Naturally having expensive taste (but not the $$ to support it), and being a September baby I’m drawn to sapphires and found this awesome geometric one with a diamond as an accent piece. I love the simplicity of the style as well as the fact that the sapphire is a triangle cut. Which is not your average setting.

I envision this ring in a classic edgy style like Olivia Palmero, with belted hi-waisted flannel pants, crisp white button down and a classic jacket. Now it can go either way classy or casual, so I gave you tow options on shoes. And being that I live in NYC you know it goes both ways. Maybe you’re out for an interview or on a girl’s night out. The ring transitions beautifully with either and becomes the focal point of the outfit with the pop of color from the sapphire. The grays are a pseudo neutral and let the ring do all your talking. I also loved the shape as I have a similar setting and love that it’s a conversation starter.
So the next time you’re struggling with where to get that “guuurl, where did you get that ring?” head over to invaluable.com and scoop up a one of a kind item.
