I believe in the power of accessorizing. Just like a great outfit is never complete without the perfect shoes, purse, or jewelry, your house isn’t a home until you decorate with the right accessories that speak to your personal style.
As an interior designer, I’m constantly on the prowl for that perfect accessory. It’s not just my job, I truly love doing it.
In my searches, I often find pieces that don’t work for the project I’m currently working on, but that I love nonetheless. I end up daydreaming on these crushes, but there’s no way I can fit them into my downtown Miami apartment. It’s packed with my design crushes already!
As Valentine’s Day approaches, I’m thinking about how I can gift my current favorites to my friends and family. Take a peek at my designer picks this year.
February Designer Picks
I love giving my mom flowers, but this year I’m going a step further. I’ll give some blooms to my mom in this Jonathan Adler Lip Vase that I’ve been crushing on. It’s inspired by Salvador Dali’s wife, and will give my mom a year-round spot to hold flowers.
If your loved one isn’t into flowers, they might be into spirits. Elevate their bar cart or mini bar with this unique Tom Dixon decanter that’s giving off major Gatsby vibes.
For the champagne popper, pair the decanter with these unique Champagne flutes.
These next few gifts are perfect for your mom, aunt, friend, or sibling who’s always the hostess with the mostess. A Jonathan Adler candle will brighten up their home, a marble tray serves charcuterie in style, and a lavender teapot for afternoon tea.
At the moment, one of my most pinned items is a neon sign. I love the whimsy one adds to any room.
Right after neon signs on my Pinterest is letter boards. Your trendy Instagram-famous friend will love this every time they go to get that picture-perfect post.
For that one friend who’s always late, a cute day planner from Target is the ideal friendly-reminder gift.
I saved the best for last. Right now, my biggest obsession this stunning Hudson Valley Table Lamp. It’s perfect for me … or your friend who just moved into a new home.
