We all have that side table, nightstand, or coffee table that we can’t quite figure out how to style. It needs to be functional, but also beautiful and contribute to the style of the space. This week on the blog, I decided to do a spin-off of Easy Shelf Styling Basics to give you some styling tips and a helpful printable guide for side tables and coffee tables.Read More
Whether it’s a built-in piece, bookcase, or shelves framing a fireplace, shelf styling can set the tone for a room, but can also be challenging! Today on the blog, I break down shelf styling into a few easy steps that you can implement in your space.
When styling, focus on balance, layering, and variation. The shelf needs to appear visually balanced and “equal” on each point of the center line. Also make sure you’re laying pieces in front and behind each other while incorporating elements of different heights and sizes.Read More

I'm excited to debut our first "how-to" video thanks to Sarah E Dunn Photo + Design! One of the questions I get asked about most often when decorating is how to style shelves so that they are both functional and beautiful. Bathroom shelves or closets are often overlooked when it comes to decorating and organization and can easily get piled up with clutter. I like to keep all the necessities close at hand in our bathroom but there are some tricks to displaying all these items so that they still look chic + organized! Check out our easy to follow video below for step by step instructions on styling your own bathroom shelves like a pro!
Confession time: I'm a bit of a pillow hoarder. I have a pillow stash in one of our closets because I'm constantly buying new ones and always switching out pillows from room to room, during holidays, and changing seasons. Pillows really are the easiest way to change up a space, add pattern and texture, and even an unexpected pop of color. I am drawn towards pillows with neutral tones and hints of texture, which is why I love our Trifecta pillows so much. I had fun styling them in nearly every room of our house, and it was SO easy because they really go with ANY decor. No matter your color scheme or whether your style is more traditional, eclectic, bohemian, or rustic- these will instantly add a little coziness and Kentucky-chic style to any space. The print is an original vintage silhouette that we found on an old 70's souvenir tote bag- a tiny bit of Kentucky nostalgia that will now live on for years to come. Pile them on beds and couches, benches and chairs, or even your outdoor furniture- you can check out all my styling ideas below and then shop the pillows at the end of this post!
