Mixing Styles | Unifying the Traditional and Contemporary

Today on Dear Alice we will be talking about mixing styles. The best way to successfully mix an overstated design with a more understated style is to start by neutralizing the colors then start to add the layers back in. An important thing to ask yourself is how your room makes you feel. You want your design to match your personality, and that can even include your children so if it feels good and matches your overall vibe, then it’s right for you. If your style is tradition, try throwing in some modern art and styling pieces to change it up and keep it from being too predictable. Design has evolved over time and with interiors today we try to break the rules and mix old and new, using the best of both worlds. If you are stuck in an era, you can freshen it with a few touches and still honor its history.@Aris_Empire question - how to balance understated style with overstated style 1:11Is mixing styles more of a modern thing? 12:47@northloganrealtor - A table in a traditional house trying to be transitional 20:01“If you are more transitional, but you live in a traditional house, start getting those pieces that feel like you. That feel a little more modern because again they’re going to shine in this traditional shell even more so than they would in a contemporary space, because of that juxtaposition.” 22:04https://www.instagram.com/alicelaneinteriors/https://www.instagram.com/alicelanehome/https://alicelanehome.com/https://www.facebook.com/AliceLaneHomehttps://www.pinterest.com/alicelanehome/https://www.youtube.com/alicelanehomecollectionsaltlakecity

Mixing Styles | Unifying the Traditional and Contemporary

Styling and Accessorizing | A Fine Touch To Perfect Your Home

We discuss the final layer that brings everything together. You can help kids to keep things neat by accommodating some styles to their interests, and giving them their own shelf to display their own stuff. Make a distinction between their toys and “your toys.” This can give them pride in their own stuff. Give them a delicate collection of their own delicate toys with which they have to be gentle and learn to take care of. Art books and design books are what you want to display. The average household should have about 20 cocktail table books to display. Try and get non directional items for the center of your console, such as a bowl. A bust, of family members or yourself, is a great thing to have on display, as well as vases. Candles should be large and never leave your wicks white. Candles should be in a place you can tend to it. A diffuser should be somewhere your guests will smell it, such as an entry. Avoid a round rug in general. Boxes can be used to fill space which large accessories cannot. Coral helps a lot as an accessory. It’s white, so it goes well with most things. Try to group your different coral together. You want to style for your vantage point. Hide things such as your printer down low instead of at eye level where you’re going to see it often. You can do a couple different stacks of books and stacking vertically is good in order to be able to read the title. End table needs a lamp, more books, and maybe a sculpture or bowl. Bowls are great because you can fill it with pistachios, or candy. A tray is almost always necessary. Then you can stylize everything with the tray and don’t have to worry about the rest of the coffee table. Coasters go well with the tray.How to go about styling and accessorizing with kids 2:25 The Delicate Collection 9:32 Books 11:55Candles 20:20Greenery 26:07Steve Cordony @stevecordony 33:04Nightstand and end table 44:12“So you’re going to want to use more non-directional things on a non-directional surface, so a circle is non-directional. The center hall table you’re going to be coming at it from all different directions because it’s the center of your household, or at least the center of your entry. So grounding it with a really large vase or ginger jar is probably our best go-to thing that I would say, and then filling that with whatever is in season.” 40:16https://www.instagram.com/alicelaneinteriors/https://www.instagram.com/alicelanehome/https://alicelanehome.com/https://www.facebook.com/AliceLaneHomehttps://www.pinterest.com/alicelanehome/https://www.youtube.com/alicelanehomecollectionsaltlakecity

The Family Room | Creating Space for Beauty and Ease

Today we discuss the family room, and why it is different than the living room, which is usually more dressy and reserved for company and adults. Some houses get rid of the living room and instead have what some would call a great room, one really large scale room, which is open to a kitchen and an open floor plan and could also be considered the family room and the nucleus of the house, where you want to be very comfortable. We talk about the use of wallpaper and the placement of console tables and how to maximize the its decorating power. We talk about sizing the right rug and how layered rugs can be sophisticated and how your rug is the easiest way to understand your color scheme. There are some tricks to space planning, like drawing the room out and then leaving 18 inches between the sofa and coffee table to make the table usable and the size of your TV needs to be half the length of the distance from your couch to the location of your TV. We also talk about we avoid putting it ...

The Family Room | Creating Space for Beauty and Ease

Designing a Primary Bedroom for Luxury and Comfort | You Deserve It

In this episode, we talk about the master or primary bedroom and advantages of investing in your own sleeping space, which can tend to get neglected when you're a parent trying to tend to the other rooms in your house. We want to help the listener have a better experience sleeping & living in your room of privacy and repose. We start our discussion by answering questions from listeners, including how to pick furniture while not being too “matchy.” We feel the answer is to look at function by addressing the habits of those living in the room, as well as room design and color. We discuss space planning with the bed, dressers and nightstands, how to get the right scale of art above your bed, using a 30” lamp for your nightstands and when to blend TV’s into walls. We share the advantages of using a rug, even if your floor is already carpeted and how that helps delineate space and benefits of a settee or small sofa at the foot of the bed. Are you struggling with styling your nightstand? Our recommendation is to start by cleaning off the top completely, then adding the lamp (softer, round shaped to soften angles and corners in the room), faux florals, coasters, and whatever else you need and use. Trays and bowls can be useful to keep things from falling. Don't feel pressured to fill the whole space up -- less is more.We talk about our favorite way to dress your bed including our favorite sheets, white quilts and adding interest with the duvet or pillows. There are easy ways to make your room feel luxurious, therapeutic, and soothing by getting the right scent, selecting candles that will help you relax and linen sprays. All these elements work together to create an amazing space for you to relax and enjoy. https://manage.kmail-lists.com/subscriptions/subscribe?a=HZENWY&g=PFcqV5Bedroom Dressers and Tables 1:54Space Planning 11:39What to Put Above the Bed; Bedding 18:03Getting the Right Scent For Your Room 25:42How To Style a Dresser/Nightstand in a Master Bedroom 27:54“I’m picturing more of a darker, coffee-stained or a walnut nightstand that’s a chest, and then next to that, on her side of the bed, is a round table that has a marble top.

Defining Luxury | Never Saving Anything for Best

Today, we talk about how we at Alice Lane Interior define luxury and ways to experience luxury in your everyday choices. We start our discussion by talking about a conversation between Whitney Robinson (former editor in chief of Elle Decor) and Martyn Lawrence Bullard (star on Bravo’s Million Dollar Decorators and decorator for Kylie Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Tommy Hilfiger, Cher, Ellen Pompeo, and Eva Mendes), had on “what is luxury?” We discuss how luxury is not saving what you have “for best,” meaning that we should use and enjoy our finest possessions. We talk about a few products that we feel are luxurious. For instance, we recommend Lunya’s, The Robe, found here (https://www.lunya.co/products/the-robe-1?variant=31349641019435), luxury sheets (https://alicelanehome.com/collections/sheets/products/white-tencel-sheet-sets) and a counter spray called Rosewater Driftwood by Caldrea (https://www.caldrea.com/fragrance/homekeeping/rosewater-driftwood/).

We talk about common mistakes like hanging family portraits in the entry (TMI for salesmen, not enough visibility for those who live in the house), having rugs that are too small, and using boob lights.
