A great way to add an appealing edge to any piece of furniture is by adding nailheads. The metal against virtually any fabric or surface will create great lines and add some masculine detail to any space. Try them in any room on any surface for a fabulous finishing touch; you truly can’t go wrong. Check out our favorite ways to incorporate nailheads into your home.

What is more chic than BRIGHT walls? DARK walls. Bright tones on your walls are so last year. My latest obsessions are BLACK, GRAY and NAVY BLUE walls. Dark walls are a great way to create a sophisticated, beautiful oasis in a space. Black, navy, and gray are staple neutrals in everyone’s closet, and these colors transfer from fashion to interiors seamlessly.

There is a reason why black is considered timeless: Think the “little black dress”.
