Hello and happy Wednesday! Today's inspiration snapshot caught my eye via Pinterest. It's such a bright, cheerful space, isn't it? It belongs to Julie Totten of Poppies and Posies; she bought the cabinet at Junk in Brooklyn and gave it an update with a bright glossy coat of paint. It makes the perfect home bar set-up and I like the layers of shelving above, mixed with barware and decorative accessories. The lemon tree adds a nice touch as well!

Styling a space is all about adding the details and finishing touches that literally make the design. Without those special accents, a room looks unfinished and, well, boring! In addition to books, interesting objects and accents, plants and natural elements always add a special touch. One way to add drama, height and texture is with a big vase filled with tall branches. I notice time and time again how often designers use these simple yet dramatic arrangements, which can be placed on a counter top, entry table, on the floor, on cocktail table and so on. Popular branches include manzanita branches, cherry blossoms, driftwood and curly willow (here's a good shopping resource I found online).&
