Inspiration From Celebrity Fans

When the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton debuted her royal baby this past summer, her polka dot maternity dress was sold-out within an hour online. When supermodel Kate Moss wore a $150 panther claw-print dress from Topshop, it sold out within 15 minutes.  We are all fascinated by celebrities and their likings, from wardrobe and jewelry to lifestyle and home décor. It’s easy (and not so notable) to pay a well-known celebrity to officially become a spokesperson for your brand. But, when a celebrity chooses to express interest in a particular brand and product out of their own will, then that speaks volumes and is much more noteworthy.

At Abbyson Living, we are proud to have some very recognizable fans. Just like you, they appreciate quality, elegance and comfort when decorating their home.

Celebrities have access to the best products across the globe, so when they select an item for their home, the general public trusts their decision/opinion/judgment. Abbyson Living designs are manufactured to meet celebrity standards, but are sold at affordable prices for every day consumers. Your home can now look like Freida Pinto’s home or Howie Mandel’s, without emptying your wallet!

From the living room to the bathroom, bedroom to kitchen, and every room in between, everyone is adding a soft touch to their busy life.

Fashion designer Jill Stuart has turned her bathroom into a dream oasis, making it calm, cool and collected with soft blue colors.

A Look Inside Fashion Designer Vera Wang’s Home

For those of you who love a modern and sleek yet sophisticated environment, then you will love fashion designer Vera Wang’s new getaway home located in the heart of Beverly Hills.

Wang ties in one interior and fashion trend that never seems to fade away, black and white. Her minimalist fashion style mimics her interior style: simple, sleek, and oh so stunning.

Take a look at her Los Angeles home and you, too, can mimic her style using black and white furniture pieces from Abbyson Living.

Southern Comfort

Inspired by Elle Decor’s cover of interior designer Courtnay Daniels’s southern design taste, we have put together ideas to help make your home more hospitable.

Daniels who grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia, helped add a bit of country charm to her brother’s downtown New York City living space. If she can bring southern calm and comfort to one of the most hectic cities in the world, then so can you and we are here to help!

Whether you live in the middle of the city or the middle of nowhere, below are tips and design examples to help open your home to the warming trends that are traditional southern American style.

1. Add southern romance to your living space by using neutrals. Traditional country styles incorporate shades of tan, cream, peach and gray. Interior designer Courtnay Daniels did just that to her brother’s home by using neutral furniture pieces in the living room.

2. Help make your city loft feel like a sprawling southern mansion by incorporating decorating pieces such as colorful flower bouquets, crystal chandeliers, basket bowls with edible fruit and floor to ceiling flowing curtains.

Don’t forget to leave us a comment at the end of this blog and/or send us your quick and easy home makeover suggestions or pictures! Twitter/Pinterest/Instagram: @AbbysonLiving and Facebook: http://www.Facebook.com/AbbysonFurnishings.

1) Curtains

Don’t want to repaint your walls? Hang colored curtains in your living area for an immediate makeover.

Décor tip: Hang your curtains higher rather than lower to accentuate your tall ceilings, creating a larger and more spacious environment.

Another way to easily change the look of your kitchen is to paint your cabinets a warm color, remove a few of the cabinet doors (this will help make your kitchen look larger), and paint the interior a bold-rich color.

Decor tip: Place multiple mirrors together on the wall to create a mirror collage. :)
