FOR THE BEDROOM:
Red has become one of my favorite colors for interior design and this turned leg nightstand is the perfect shade to add a pop of color to your bedside. With a monochromatic bed and some great accent pillows, these will transform your bedroom. If you are more in tune with the minimalist / modern vibe, the mid-century nightstand is a great replica of the original without the hefty price-tag.

FOR THE BATHROOM:
One of the easiest ways to give your bathroom a make-over without bringing in a contractor is to add a new shower curtain and bathmats. Graphic prints always make a sophisticated statment and here are four pairs I put together that I love. Which ever set you choose, they will all give your bathroom the update its been waiting for.

|Trellis Shower Curtain, $29; Trellis Bath Mat, $19.99, Westelm.com.|
Generally, whether its my fashion sense or in my home, I usually subscribe to the idea that anything matchy-matchy is a no-no. But I would make an exception for this Trellis set - the pattern is so gorgeous, I wouldn't mind having it in the shower and on my floor!

FOR THE LIVING ROOM:
Replace the tired throw pillows in your living room with these great options for under $40! They are all made with fresh, contemporary and chic fabrics that tell guests you have great taste! I was also excited to see their collaboration with Allegra Hicks, one of my favorite textile designers who makes some of the most gorgeous fabrics out there. Now, I can decorate with her beautiful pillows without spending big $$$.
