Open House: Three Statement-Making Vignettes

This is sponsored content produced in partnership between Downtown Summerlin and WENDOH Brand Studio, the brand marketing unit of WENDOH Media.

My passion lies in creating chic, stunning and—most of all—comfortable living spaces. In search of spring and summer inspiration, I did a little prep work at Downtown Summerlin and conceived three vignettes that define the season.

A Springtime Tablescape

An inviting table for your guests should be both high in style and extremely functional.

I have a big crush on blue, so that color is a must. From pale ice blue to deep indigo—it’s not going away anytime soon and always has its moment in my designs.

I also love to mix in new trends with staple pieces. In this tablescape, I used the beautiful white, everyday dinnerware from Macy’s The Cellar collection and added seashell bowls from West Elm.

This is just the beginning of the look for this tabletop. Gold flatware for special occasions also gives it an elegant feel.

I put glass vases and hurricanes from West Elm at the center of the table and as the main inspiration. The powdery-blue hydrangea floral arrangement from Ethan Allen serves as the focal point.

When it comes to dining room seating, I love to mix it up and use benches for a casual and fun look. The neutral tufted chairs from Kirkland’s complement the modern clean lines of the black-and-white-striped Clinton bench from Ethan Allen.

A Refreshed Living Room

Rugs are great for defining a space while adding warmth and texture. A geometric wool area rug from Ethan Allen adds a splash of deep navy blue on the floor in this vignette.

Lovesac provides a love seat, which was customized with a neutral-colored cotton slipcover. The pretty blush pink pillows from West Elm and Ethan Allen complement—and the sequined pillow from Kirkland’s adds some glam and texture. The wonderful thing about decor pillows: For a small investment, you can change them up as often as you like.

Blush is one of my favorite on-trend colors. A little goes a long way to create a cozier and more modern look.

An Ethan Allen coffee table pulls the living room together and tells a great visual story.

Finally, the beautiful black and white art photography from Bobby Wheat Gallery creates a great conversation piece and a focal point above the sofa.

A Contemporary Entryway

An entryway gives a first impression of your home’s style and personality. Using a white Parson’s desk from West Elm, I sought to create a contemporary feel, which is enhanced by the piece’s simple lines and lacquered finish.

Adding a single brass industrial desk lamp (also from West Elm), a tray table to drop your mail and keys, and accessories such as books and vases give the area more texture.

Another design trick is to use benches, stools or chairs at an entrance. A set of neutral tufted chairs from Kirkland’s and a fun white pillow with gray Greek-key stitching balances this look but is also functional.
