At Home’s Family Homes issue is one of my favorites. Pretty sure it’s because I get to meet some awesome kids and play (I mean style) in their rooms. It’s always a good day when you come across fun, inspiring kids that are so proud of their rooms. So for this installation of “Creative and Color Curated,” IÂ channelled my inner child (which wasn’t very hard) and found some super cool pieces–from the chair, which by the way is only $65 and eco friendly, to the golidlocks mirror that any kid (or adult) is going to enjoy years to come. Whether you are 6 mos. or 60 years old…be sure to add a little whimsy. It’s sure to bring a giggle every now and then.
One of our favorite new holiday albums is A Very She and Him Christmas. Have you heard? M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel’s soulful interpretation of classics like “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and “Silver Bells” is pure wintertime goodness. Art director Mandy Keener, a fan of She and Him’s vintage style, used the album’s cover as inspiration for this month’s Cover With Style edition.
Wouldn’t you just love to curl up on this porch in P. Allen Smith’s home, featured here in At Home in Arkansas’ December issue, with a warm blanket and soft Christmas tunes from She and Him playing in the background? Sign us up!
For today’s Monday Must Haves, we asked interior designer and At Home’s resident fashion blogger, Meridith Hamilton to share her the items she can’t live without.
