Dramatic drapes are having a moment right now. Moody, colorful, playful or downright pretty, a soaring floor-to-ceiling swathe of folded fabric is probably one of the easiest and least expensive ways to completely transform your room. And they don’t just have to be relegated to windows. Create a dramatic headboard or room divider. Floor to ceiling creates the illusion of height in rooms with low ceilings. Don’t be afraid to go big. Need a little kick in the pants inspiration? Scroll down for some of our favorite Pins of the Week.

High on a Stowe, Vermont mountain top this pool and pool house is a stunning example of what happens with a perfect convergence of landscape, architecture and design. Designed by Landscape Architecture firm Wagner Hodgson, the result is understated with an ideal combination of organic-meets-modern...

A few years ago, a client requested a bright, Wyoming-sky blue wall in her living room. I stopped in my tracks. Blue isn’t usually part of the traditional Western palette (i.e. brown, red, beige). However, after thinking about it for a hot minute, I took a look outside and (indeed) there was the great big, beautiful blue sky staring me in the face.

Beauty, nature and the spirit of travel—what better muses can you ask for? Toronto-based artist Christine Flynn left a ten-year career in advertising to pursue more creative pastures in the world of photography, and we couldn’t be happier she did, because Flynn’s modern-meets-vintage style is fresh, cool, and making serious waves in the art world. The best part? Her photographs come in editions of 10 and are priced by size, making her entire body of work totally accessible.

Next time you feel the urge to redecorate, step back and take a deep breath and turn to your walls. Still have those old framed posters from your early 20s? Or maybe you’re staring at a massive gallery wall of fading family photos... Either way, I’m willing to bet that it’s time for some new art. Buying art is daunting at best, but today there are a ton of great sites that feature new and emerging artists with pieces for just about any budget.

Living a life in full color means allowing room for new, different, crazy, wild, witty, fun, intriguing, fabulous design into your everyday.

Ditch the boring and embrace the bold, elegant, and beautiful. If your walls are white, here’s what you are missing. Élitis is a French brand that makes us weak in the knees. The fabrics and accessories are gorgeous, but we first fell head over heels for the wallcoverings. Élitis made us rethink wallpaper entirely. A pretty impressive feat considering how anti-wallpaper we were for many years.

When our client came to us, life had thrown her for a bit of a loop, and a little “cabin in the woods” situated on a long winding road in the Jackson Hole backcountry, was the antidote. Shaded by pine trees, the cabin (built in the early 2000s) was in a gorgeous spot but the interiors were the bad side of “rustic.” However, this was no time for quiet solitude. Times like these call for a serious injection of life—colors, touchable textures, natural elements and afternoon-nap worthy upholstered pieces that all provide a cocoon for winding down.
