Trim the tree and hang the stockings. Simple enough. But what if the place you call home is missing the mantel? We have yet to see a design issue we can't conquer, and holiday decorating is no exception. Lacking the traditional doesn't mean you lack tradition this holiday season. Apartments and modern layouts are not exempt from the festivities. No mantel? No problem! With that, there is not mantle we aren't confident taking on either. From...

Banquettes have stolen our hearts. Not only are they easy if you have little people in your home, but they function well as added storage without taking up any space.

Partitions, dividers, and curtains-- the things that divide us. While we want to be close to people, we are loving these separators and the way they change up a space so quickly and beautifully. We love floating furniture and things that our walls could talk about too. Large, lofty rooms or even our dining rooms needing something special, these dividers have us cut in half and pouring our hearts out On the Pedestal.

This shade is the color your hot chocolate gives way to when the marshmallows melt and it's the perfect drinking temperature. It's a perfect color temperature in interiors as well and your closet. This shade looks great on all skin tones and moves well from day to night.

If you didn't notice, November came creeping up. The poet d.j. wrote, "Autumn killed Summer with the softest kiss." Fall is here for real and the long shadows of the late day and hint smell of smoke in the air has us breathing in the seasons of gratitude. On the Pedestal this month we are drinking in the color cocoa, getting in touch with nature and woodland retreats, table settings, and animal interiors. And not to get divisive, but this...

Feeling a little blah? It's that space between Halloween-y time and Thanksgiving where only the very adventurous get holiday shopping and Christmas cards done. We get it. But your space shouldn't fall flat! Adding texture makes a room pop even more than those tangerine pillows you've been eyeing and potentially more than the German schmear on the fireplace. Join us today to see how texture might be the it factor you are missing from your...

These rustic kitchens have us swooning. Subway tiles and rich earthy tones make these spaces as warm and inviting as every kitchen should be. As the space we are all drawn to the most, kitchens deserve some love and these modern, rustic selections pair so well together we couldn't be more excited to place them On the Pedestal.

These gardens aren't so secret, but we will let you in on one: they are pretty fabulous. Florals aren't just for spring, but bloom year round in these fabulous interior designs. Using florals with a darker negative space, such as a navy or black, brings florals into a more modern era and a less dainty vibe. We love seeing these florals paired with September's Color Crush...

Feeling down? Might be time to look up and give the 5thwall the attention that it deserves. Flip your space upside down and show some love to your ceiling.

It’s getting dark out there, and, we hope, dark in here as well. Jet black has earned its place On the Pedestal. Black is sophisticated and mysterious. Black is not the shade of angst or moodiness, but the utmost of sophistication. Whether in monochrome or a single, stunning piece or accent wall, the blacker, the better!

As the days get shorter and the colors shift, it's time to place some unexpected colors and elements On the Pedestal.

Love us some leather. This month we are putting leather On the Pedestal, and maybe making a pedestal, a couch, a chair, and dining chairs out of this supple but strong material. We love that leather, like a fine wine, gets better with age. Fall is a fabulous time to explore with leather details in your spaces, or go all out in that classic, strong look. Autumn and winter call for leather pieces in your wardrobe. Jackets, pants, boots, and...

It was Beyoncé who said it first, but we want to make sure we put a ring on it too. Gold and brass banding add that extra flair, much like the perfect pieces of jewelry.

Like the shades of turning leaves, this color turns out heads! Mixing it in with our wardrobes and interior design makes this a fabulous golden shade.

As the seasons roll into fall, colors and textures become richer, but so do our patterns. We are mad about plaid this season, and not much more gets classic than plaid. This print has stood the test of time in both interior design, and in fashion. September is a perfect time to start rolling into autumn and plaid is a way to transition with the rich shades of fall.

It's that time of year, baseball reaches a fever pitch and football has kicked off-- and the men seem to disappear to the couch. And even if sports aren't his thing, we want to give a little love to the guys and their man caves this month. Bring on the leather, the rich tones, and bro time far away from the ladies.

Don't tread on me. Or do. Rugs have earned their place On the Pedestal. The chameleons of the design world, rugs can either anchor a space or steer the ship. With the vast array of textures, colors, and designs, the change of rug can change a room. Even tiny spaces and hallways need a pop on the floor, like a runner or small surface area piece.

Be still our chic hearts, monochrome is On the Pedestal. There is something so sophisticated about a singular color palate. It works with neutrals and with colors and is sure to be stunning in wardrobe and in your spaces. In fashion and interiors, a tonal palate adds interest when balanced with mixed textures. The one color task might seem overwhelming-- but, dear friends, we assure you, a hero hue makes design streamline. Monochrome makes...

Dorms, closets, apartments, the smallest of spaces sometimes have the biggest hearts. Don't let less square footage fool you, smaller spaces take more imagination. Whether it's stacking dorm beds up for more storage or making a rented space feel personal, we are placing the tiny but mighty spaces On the Pedestal. A small space does not mean a small imagination; in fact, it calls for even more creative mind to make a small space functional and...

Once upon a time, this was the last month we were allowed to wear white without making someone blush. Now, we welcome white in all seasons, spaces, and are flat out in love. The color crush this month has more depth than some might imagine. Milk, cream, ivory, eggshell, vanilla, and pearl-- white isn't just an accent shade but deserves a spotlight all her own.

Anyone have that co-worker you most look forward to seeing? Meet Sheldon, the office official mascot and true teammate. What weight he is actually pulling, we aren't sure, but office morale is better because he is always their to rifle through a bag or win a staring contest. Sheldon is as important a fixture at the office as any ginger jar or striped pillow, and we wish he could read this and be as flattered as we are infatuated with him!

Even pattern-phobes can get in line with stripes! Clean, crisp, and just enough pattern to bring some (or a lot!) of interest to a space, stripes are the easiest way to enhance already striking prints or give something to a subdued room-- or wardrobe! From Breton tops that make us long for Paris to striped dining room chairs, we are on board with this print and always ready for more.

We aren't sure the last time these beauties were used for actual ginger, but they are useful for everything else! Arriving On the Pedestal today are ginger jars. Most commonly found in our Color of the Month Blue, they don't stop with this hue. Ginger jars can be found in striking and unexpected shades of green, pink, even orange-- and all of them work well in spaces. Filled with peonies or aglow as a lamp, we love seeing how you use ginger...

Time to open up those shades and let the sun shine in! Natural light streams in and light 's up any space in the way only the summer sun can.

We are celebrating our founder and leader's birthday all month! What better place for a birthday lunch than Tiny Boxwood's? Nestled in the heart of Houston amongst the vines and gorgeous modern farmhouse decor, we showered Cheryl with peonies, twine-wrapped orange place settings, and, of course, chocolate chip cookies. And we won't tell if you don't, but a little white wine mojito for lunch really topped off the birthday celebration!

Drifting away sounds like a lovely summer goal. And we are placing driftwood and sea glass On the Pedestal as the summer naturals. We love washed out beautifully turned branches of driftwood and the story they tell.

It’s that time of year, the one where you open your closet to grab a light sweater and realize you should be on an episode of Hoarders. Spring cleaning is here.

We are not in a desert when it comes to botanical prints and accessories, or are we? Succulents are all over the interior design world in greenery and in print.

We know, we are animals. And we embrace that. We are placing animal prints #OnthePedestal this Friday and couldn't think of a better theme going into our weekend. Animal prints are coming out of the jungle and all over our living rooms, dining room, and into our closest. No need to call pest control, these prints are anything but a nuisance.

Yellow is inviting and sophisticated in interiors and in wardrobe. We love how different textiles allow for...

Geodes and agate will rock your space! We love these natural minerals and seeing all the ways they get used in our spaces.

Originated by designers George C. Heins and Christopher Grant La Farge, this 3-by-6-inch rectangle was first seen in a New York subway station. The tiles moved as quickly as the subway into bathrooms and kitchens across the country. Bright, easy to clean, and sleek, subway tiles work in the running bond pattern or in unexpected herringbone patterns. We love mixing it up. Diagonal offsets and crosshatches, vertical bond, you name it-- we've...

We love seeing dark woods come back. Darker stains, paints, and shades make lighter walls seem taller and the room seem bigger. Give a room depth and extra space with darker floors and add square footage without knocking down a wall. Dark wood doesn’t end with the floors, we are jumping on board with dark furniture and wooden accents as well. Dark pieces are stately and attractive; they hold their own and look grown up and sophisticated.

Colored appliances, a once retro look, is in and chic as all get out! We love color and needn't be afraid of it, including in our appliances.

Who knew what we learned in high school math would come in so handy for interiors? Hexagonal tiles, rectangle shiplap, triangular millwork—and no need for a protactor!

Don’t think grandma’s kitchen when we say, “wallpaper!” The once dated look is back and we are loving the facelift this classic style is getting! From De Gournay to Cole & Sons, we love adding wallpaper, especially in unexpected places and spaces. A half bath becomes a whole new room with some special print on the wall. An accent wall in an office or bedroom brings to life the space with the right wallpaper.

We are placing acrylic On the Pedestal. We can’t get enough, whether it’s a drawer pull or a ghost chair, acrylic embodies that less can, in fact, be more. These incredible items look contemporary, but not cold; minimalist, but not minor; luxury, but not over the top.

Patina actually means “an impression or appearance of something,” and our impression is that the appearance of patina is worthy of being placed On the Pedestal! When copper ages, it takes on a new dimension due to the oxidation over long periods of time. This aging doesn’t actually age a piece though, it gives it rich tonal changes that make us wonder if older is better. From sea...

Want a show stopper? Do something, anything, in hot pink! We are head over heels for this fun, fabulous shade. It is the wilder, younger sister of the sweet blushy tones we have been seeing all year.

This hue so signature to girly fun has a business side too when...

And because fashion and interior design tend to trend together, we are loving needlepoint make its way in fashion too....

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all? These mirrors would reply that they are! Bring light and luxury to any space with a mirror. Not only does it reflect the natural light already in the room, but it elongates and lets the space grow. Don’t be bashful with your mirrors either, these are pieces of art. We love these ornate pieces that command all eyes on them. Mirrors, like a good relationship, reflect the beauty that...

We are placing velvet On the Pedestal, because its gorgeous rich texture brings out the best in all the colors of the rainbow. Luxe on a whole other level, and now it’s established its place as a year round textile! What was once a fashion faux paux is now a fashion forward choice, and the same goes for interiors.

It's that time of year when we transition slowly, but surely to Spring. We are placing some lovely colors, pieces, and textures On the Pedestal this month that hold their own in February and beyond! From our Vendor Spotlights to our favorite color this month, we are loving the way different shapes, textures, textiles, and pieces both old and new can make any space special.

Normally, we would place our love list On the Pedestal, but today we are placing everything on the mantel! With our focus this January on taking care of the things we love, from our minds and bodies to our homes, we were drawn to what is often the epicenter of our living spaces--mantels. Dressed up in ornate millwork and stone carving, or stripped down to a raw railroad tie, these...

It’s all in the details and hardware is certainly not to be overlooked. Gold hardware is an easy way to lux up a space and add that richness we all crave. Amidst the Carrera marble or the flat grey bathroom cabinets, the gold knobs and faucets pop. Think of it like adding an accessory to an outfit, the hardware adds that next level touch to a room like the gentle twinklings of perfectly styled earrings.

CDB Interiors has noticed an upswing in bars requested by our clients, so we wanted to place them and the accessories that make it special On the Pedestal. From diamond glass doors for storage, to gilded shakers and glasses, a bar or bar cart (for those with a little less space) adds a certain sophistication to your after work hours. Leather...

Along with resolutions of health and wellness, there is no wellness comparable to getting the kind of reset and mindfulness that comes from a cozy home. We have picked some of our favorite decompression items. A snuggle-worthy throw from William Sonoma and Barefoot Dreams robe that must be made from marshmallows is the start to a...

It's regal. It's royal. It's in-your-face bold and yet, not aggressive. It's Pantone's Color of the Year. We see color making it's way across the fashion world, but fashion and interior design have a way of holding hands while telling their stories.
