A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of taking a staycation at ARRIVE Memphis, one of the newest hotels to open in Downtown Memphis. My hometown is slowly but surely turning into a metropolitan city and I am so here for it!
Modern boho decor might be my all-time favorite interior design style. It combines strong elements from Mid-Century Modern design and Traditional Bohemian flare, so when a home is decorated in this style, it's a dreamy confection of colors and textures with a few clean lines thrown in.
Whenever fellow Memphis blogger Cara Greenstein would post glimpses into her home on IG, I always wished that I could expand the photo a little further to see the full room. Her beautifully curated Instagram serves as the appetizer for her blog Caramelized, a food + lifestyle blog created with a purpose to share, celebrate and elevate everyday experiences.
I first started paying attention to the dark floral wallpaper trend about 4 years ago when Emily of Cupcakes & Cashmere renovated her powder room. I've always loved dark florals when it came to clothing, but I looked at the home decor trend with new eyes once I saw what she used.
On Saturday I attended Art By Design, ArtsMemphis' annual fundraising event that features gorgeous vignettes designed by some of Memphis' top interior designers + design firms. This year was a super special treat because I got to see my friend Andrea Fenise's "Turn Your Room Into A Wardrobe" Tour.
Located at 600 Monroe in The Edge District (Marshall Arts if you're from Memphis), Edge Alley opened last July and is a stylish, modern cafe and coffee shop. Designed with an open floor plan and community seating, the picturesque space is the perfect spot for both quick meetings with fellow creatives, and chill time with your favorite book and cup of joe.
