Modern Black and White Room

Hello friends! I have another fun room design for you today! For this board I started with a fabulous accent chair: this sunny yellow Chinoiserie armchair from Chairish. There’s actually a pair of them, and I think they would look great flanking a lovely light gray sofa like this one designed by The Everygirl for Interior Define. I kept the rest of the room pretty neutral, adding a lovely Moroccan rug for texture, a sleek vintage black art deco lamp, some gorgeous black and white art from Minted, and more.

Once I started building this room I realized that it reminded me of Jenna Lyons’ iconic living room, isn’t it gorgeous!

What do you think of a neutral room with a single pop of color? It’s a little different than my usual style but I love it!

Better KC Segment

This morning was super exciting for me: I did my first TV appearance! I did a live segment showing how to make my fall wreath and autumn tablescape on Better Kansas City, a local talk show on KCTV5. I was really nervous going into it but once the segment started I felt ok. The host, Alexis, was so nice and friendly and the producers were awesome and really helpful in getting everything set up. Thanks so much to Better KC for having me on and thanks to anyone who was able to watch it!

You can watch my segment on Better Kansas City’s website here.
