Holiday Home Decor

Interior Design Makeovers & Holiday Home Decor:

*Give your home a face-lift with an interior design makeover for the holidays by adding rich jewel tone colors in simple accessories such as pillows, table cloth, area rug, sofa slip cover, etc.

*Clear the clutter in your home to make way for holiday decor. Find clever ways to store things and make a holiday donation with things you don't need.

*Simple, economical holiday decoration in your home can create an elegant look. Consider a smaller tree in a color scheme; a clear vase with a bag of raw cranberries, water and long stem red roses; and/or fresh garland in one focal point.

Executive Women & Men Dressing for Success

I find that many high-powered executive women dress in boxy, unattractive suits that don't best represent who they are or what they do. Suits don't have to look masculine. A woman can dress in a high quality suit or professional look that has great fit, color and style appropriate for what they do, but also for the woman that they are and need to embrace. I think it's a leftover from the executive world being a man's world and some women feel that in order to be taken seriously, they dress in a safe, nearly masculine attire that does not suit them or their body. I've had great success finding a polished, professional look for women that presents power and success while remaining feminine, even sexy. Women enjoy an organized, stress-free closet that I create and the conveniences of a personal shopper.

Additionally, men who are in high-level executive positions don't always find the best look for their body or style. Quality is key. Tailoring is also key in order to present a powerful look. Better to have fewer suits, but ones that have terrific fabric quality, fit, specific tailoring, and color coordinates best suited for a man's coloring and body type, and personal style. Fewer power suits, but many great quality shirts and ties are necessary. Ties are one of very few standout ways that a man can show color and style...hence, power ties. I enjoy assisting a man with a professional look created for his individual position and personality. It can do wonders for a man's presentation and cuts down on stress knowing exactly what to wear and utilizing a personal shopper saves him time.

Fall Interior Design Tips

*Your interior space can be updated with fall colors, adding warmth to a space.

*Neutrally colored sofas, chairs, and duvet covers expand your accent color and fabric texture options to bold and beautiful which creates a luxurious and warm feeling to any room.

*Neutrals are a fashion forward color palette; look for warm, earthy or sandy tones that you would find in natural landscapes.

*Change your accent accessories to fall colors like burnt orange, wine red, deep teal blue and mossy greens. You can do this with pillows, area rugs, curtains, ottomans, or small chairs.

*Add fall inspired textured fabrics such as velvet, chenille, damask, or a printed silk and velvet combination.

* Now is the time to make any interior improvements you need and have been putting off before the rainy season.

*Beat holiday stress by clearing clutter in your home... find clever ways to store things and donate what you don't need.

Fun Fall Fashion Tips

Fashion Tips for Ladies:
Layering and big statement jewelry are fashionable

*Add a new fall jacket or a long sweater vest, belt and tights with heels or boots to update your existing dresses - Works best with dresses in earthy tones for a fall palette of colors.

*Pair a fashionable fall jacket or long sweater vest with blouses (add a touch of romance with a white ruffled blouse), to pants or leggings you have in your closet to give each outfit a new spin.

*Accessories: Interesting and funky large jewelry pieces taking up decolletage real estate add personal style to simple outfits. Animal prints are still fashionable, and are best used modestly in form of an accessory. While animal prints make a fashionable statement, make sure you're wearing the print, don't let it wear you!

Fashion Tips for Men:
Layering is fashionable and adds interest

*Think of layering for a polished, but casual look. Example: a collared shirt under a vest or pullover sweater ups the style factor, and a jacket not only gives warmth but adds structure to your look.

*Add a couple of new ties to your wardrobe for a fall fashion statement like a deep orange or gold. Consider bold colors.

*Versatile sport jacket is a key element to a strong and polished fall wardrobe. It's perfect with jeans, and adds a polished look to dressy occassions.

*This is the time of year to wear suits whether for work or business/social events. Be prepared with a versatile (business casual to formal) good-fitting high-quality suit. Try on what's in the closet and consider a tailor or replacement if needed.
