I recently came across Brooklyn based design firm Chango & Co. Are you familiar with their work? You can follow them here! After discovering them on Instagram, I decided to take a peek at their portfolio when coming back from the Hampton’s yesterday. One of my girlfriends and her husband who we were with this past weekend hired them to design their Tribecca apartment. I seriously cannot wait to see the end result! Anywho, after getting lost for what seemed like forever browsing their website and Instagram I had to share this Westchester Family Abode.
What I love most about discovering new design firms is pulling inspiration that you can totally recreate in your own home. I’ve seen this Serena and Lily blue and white rug used in multiple living rooms, dinning rooms and bedrooms! You also can totally mimic the dinning chairs in this home with Serena and Lily’s striped bistro chairs or the pendants utilizing these Santa Barbara Pendants. So cute, am I right?! And can we please talk about the Feather Wallpaper? A classic wallpaper staple in beach homes on the East Coast.
There’s nothing better than finding interiors that are similar to your aesthetic and recreating the look. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite products below to help you achieve this Westchester’s family home below.
Happy Monday, ladies and gents! In case you missed it or you’re just tuning in, I shared my bedroom reveal last week. I LOVED reading everyone’s comments so keep em’ coming! Gray Malin also featured my bedroom last week which is always fun as I’m such a big fan of his work.
As I mentioned in my 5 tips post, I ended up going with Horchow for my couch because they exactly had what I was looking for when it came to my sofa. I wanted a white, slip covered linen sofa that was 40″ deep. After much research, Horchow ended up having the perfect sofa for me and I have been obsessed with it ever since it was delivered to my apartment back in December!
It’s taken me much longer than anticipated to finish my living room because I’m still waiting on my Wisteria coffee table. Similar to my couch, I did a ton of research when it came to finding the perfect coffee table so I decided to stick it out and wait until it was back in stock vs. picking something out that I don’t absolutely love. I’m pretty much using this rule of thumb when it comes to all of my furniture. Next up are my end tables. There aren’t many end tables I love at first glance. However, Horchow has several that have caught my eye. Insert this Louie Round table and this gold end table. I’m a huge proponent of mixing the styles of end tables as well as the material. The Louie Round Table has that Hampton’s beach vibe that you guys know I love while the gold end table provides a polished finish.
Keep reading for my entire round up of end tables from Horchow! Where are your end tables from? Xo. Lauren
Ever since moving into my one bedroom apartment on the Upper East Side, I have been entertaining constantly! I love having my girlfriends over for wine and treats. This past weekend I teamed up with a Spanish wine region, Rueda, to host a fun wine-filled afternoon. Rueda is known for their refreshing Verdejo white wine and I have to admit, it’s delicious! If you like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, you will love Verdejo from Rueda. It’s vibrant and complex, yet effortlessly drinkable! In addition to having a few bottles of Oro de Castilla and Shaya Verdejo wine on hand, I also picked up some tea sandwiches, scones and sweet treats from Alice’s Tea Cup, an Upper East Side must-try. It definitely made for a sweet afternoon!
To help freshen up my space, I picked up a few of my favorite blooms to decorate my dining nook and bar cart. In case you didn’t know, cherry blossoms are insanely pretty this time of year. You can typically find cherry blossom branches for around $12 dollars a branch from your local florist! And in true lauren-nelson.com fashion, I also had white hydrangeas on hand to spruce up my bar cart.
With each new season, I like to switch up my dishes and dinnerware. I absolutely loved these pink floral dishes and these pink glasses from Villeroy & Boch. They matched perfectly with the cherry blossoms and looked oh-so-cute under the tea sandwiches.
If you’re planning to entertain at home any time soon, or just want a refreshing glass of white wine, make sure to look for Rueda in your wine store or order it directly from wine.com with the code “RUEDA” for a 10% discount! Cheers!! Xo. Lauren
