I like this space for many reasons. The bold contrast of black and white makes a statement. The vintage suede tufted sofa, the trellis pattern bookshelf, the classic dining chairs mixed with a modern pedestal table, and the pops of pinks, golds, and crisp white work together to make a classic modern space.


Here is my version of this classic modern room. I really like the white bamboo dining chair, the gold coffee table, and the silhouette art.

 I love the idea of mixing elegance with a hint of quirky. Pink and gold have been a color combination I keep coming back to over the past few months. I love the fun pops of pink against the sophisticated gold. What a fun and unexpected space this would be!

I love this Brooklyn apartment (featured on Apartment Therapy) so much! The building itself is so full of character, and I love the combination of the old mixed with the modern. The soft color palette keeps the space light and airy.


I am starting to really like the mixed chair combo, especially when acrylic chairs are involved. Love this quirky little dining room nook.


An ecclectic way to stack books on a corner shelf. I actually have an old corner shelf I placed in our dining room, so I might have to try this idea!


That fireplace detail is amazing! The bones of this building are so unique and beautiful.



Adding a fur rug or throw is a great way to add comfort and elegance.



 Put them on a side table to display knick-knacks, use them as a dining table centerpiece to show off your sweet treats,  or stack them above your kitchen cabinets to get them out of the way- I love cake stand collections in all their forms. I have a couple cake stands myself and I use them constantly to display my desserts. I use my tiered one for cupcakes, and my regular one for cookies, brownies and cakes.  I truly believe a girl can never have too many cake stands!
