Hi guys, long time no talk!

I’m back to my normal posting schedule— this weekend I couldn’t compile a sentence, much less a blog post #jetlag. But my WI-FI & brain are back in action.

( We won’t even get into the fact that the jet lag struggle was so real that it felt like there were a pound of bricks on my head x my face exhibited abnormally swollen features…all weekend ).

Today I’m super excited to launch a new series that I’m filming with The Design Network. It’s called ‘How To Style…’ Each week we’ll bring you a new home section. Obviously this came at the perfect time because I just moved in with Michael.

Fun, right?

This week’s installment: HOW TO STYLE A COFFEE TABLE ( of course, Boone makes a cameo ). The full five minute tutorial can be found here. I’m super excited about this video so make sure to check it out!

I know that I showcased how to style a coffee table but since moving in with a man, things have changed.

Combining masculine & feminine pieces has proved to be a difficult but fun (??) challenge. Apparently Michael truly believes he’s like Kelly Wearstler in his past life. Since moving in with him, he’s suddenly realllll into interior design…hmmmm. LOL, kind of just wish he would leave all that up to me because let’s face it, I’m a total control freak.

Thank God he doesn’t love details because SHOCKER (!!!), I DO. In fact, I’m actually obsessed with details. So it’s my job to style small spaces around the house. First project: operation coffee table.

Am I forgetting any tips or tricks for styling a table? Anyone?

Ummm can we talk about this navy blue chair?

Here’s the story behind it: we were in NYC, running around the city & spotted a velvet, navy chair that was small & dinky. All of sudden I realized that I would die if I didn’t have a navy, velvet chair so immediately I took a picture.

Michael was like ‘you don’t want that, that’s not cool.’

My brain had BIG PLANS THOUGH. And I needed, like NEEDED a navy, velvet chair.

The second we arrived home, I started planning my vision with a friend who does chair reupholstering ( my stepmom is amazing at this too, if you’re looking for someone e-mail me! ). Instead of a tiny chair, we went with regal & huge with a tufted back. And of course, the second the chair showed up at our house, Michael was in LOVE saying he loved the dinky NYC chair the whole time. HAHA.

I mean…

    I think I’m getting older because I’m now very into what my apartment looks like. When I first moved to NYC, I could have cared less and it was all super grody Ikea furniture. Now I spend almost as much on my home furnishings as I do on clothes! It’s nice to come home to something beautiful and just relax. West Elm is my fave (semi-affordable) store right now.

    That said, I LOVE that chair and that gold wishbone bowl.

    This video is amazing, and I am excited for your series. You have fantastic taste, and you completely mastered mixing masculine and feminine. It is amazing how versatile the royal purple was – and that coffee table is hands down the coolest coffee table I have ever seen. I love your knack for details and layering + dimensions. In fact, that gold table by your blue couch is incredible and I love the illusion with the height it provides.

    Hi Lauryn,

    I was curious as to what sculpture that is in one of the photos on the right? It looks like a Shark sculpture. Would love to know more!
