I’ve been a fan of interior designer Thom Filicia for quite some time. I recently came across his latest modern lake house on One Kings Lane blog and had to share!
My parents live on the lake just right outside Cleveland, Ohio so I love seeing how other people design lake houses. In my opinion, lake houses should be fun, relaxed with touches of blue and white of course! The oversized pendant mixed with the modern blue and white chairs in the dinning room makes this room my absolute favorite out of the whole house. The John Robshaw bedding is not to be missed and the small rope details make this home tour a true modern lake house. You can take a peep at the entire home tour right this way.
Ralph Lauren is a legendary designer. He is most well known for running one of the most successful luxury brands in the world in addition to designing beautiful clothes. However, I personally love him for his home collections.
If you have ever stopped by a Ralph Lauren home store (my favorite is in Greenwich, Connecticut), you know how detailed and grande these stores can be. Ralph Lauren originally launched his home collection back in 1983, well before major design houses even launched home furnishing lines taking his vision of a stylish life one step further.
My mom (obviously) was the first to introduce me to the designer and of course we’ve picked up a thing or two from visiting the Ralph Lauren home stores so here are 7 decorating tips we can all steal from the legendary Ralph Lauren!
“My wife, Ricky, and I were shopping for things for our apartment, and all the sheets were very feminine and covered in roses. I wondered, Why can’t I get something masculine? So I took the Oxford cloth we were using to make shirts, turned it into bedding, and sewed buttons down the side of the pillowcases.” – Ralph Lauren to Arch Digest
If there is one word I could use to describe my winter skin care routine it’s DEDICATED. Ok, I know you guys know this by now but I just love skin care. I don’t include make up in this category (I’m actually not even that good at doing my make up), it’s straight up wrinkle-preventing, anti-aging, please help me fight dehydration skin care products that I deem necessary to stay up-to-date on.
So since I am so dedicated to this little hobby of mine, I thoughtI would share a couple new winter skin care products that I have both used and have on my radar during these cold winter months:
Balm Dotcom: One can never have enough balms. I recently came across Balm Dotcom which is composed of natural antioxidants and provides a waxy texture that seals in moisture – perfect for the dead of winter. What I love most about this product is that in comes in three – one for home, the office and your purse.
Aurelia: If you’re like me and suffer from dehydration, Aurelia’s cell reviatlizing moisturizer melts into the skin and leaves no greasy residue. Made up of omega rich botanicals, this overnight cream is perfect to help lock in moisture.
Ski-II and Ski-II Mid-day Essence: These two skin care beauties I have on my radar. I keep seeing articles talk about how good the Ski-II collection is. Cate Blachett is a major advocate as well as just about every major makeup professional to help keep skiing hydrated all day long. Sign – me – up.
Verso Super Eye Serum and Vitamin E Eye Balm: I feel like I have tried every eye cream and balm under the sun. I currently have Verso’s Super Eye Serum and Vitamin E’s eye balm in rotation. The eye serum helps prevent bags under my eyes and the eye balm is great for a winter dewey look.
Tata Harper Lip and Cheek Tint: I’ve recently joined the Tata Harper beauty cult. This lip and cheek tint is perfect for the winter months as we rarely see the sun during the day. It gives such a pretty glow and a touch of color.
