Mirrored Silver Glamour

Mirror, mirror on the wall, silver is the fairest of them all. Or so we think…

When you anchor a room with a silver and crystal tufted sofa, you know you’ve made it to a world of exquisite beauty. Pair that with a glamorous mirrored dresser that reflects your fabulous sense of style. Finish the look with a gorgeous chandelier and an ornate mirror that is hand-etched, cut, beveled and polished with techniques used during the 16th and 17th century in Venice, Italy.

Yes, we would say silver is the fairest of them all, wouldn’t you agree?

Falling for Fall

Today marks the first day of one of our favorite seasons! Autumn is amoung us and we couldn’t be more excited. We love to watch our gorgeous Virginia trees change all shades of red, yellow and orange as the season sets in. Or how about the crisp smell of Fall, when all that humidity is gone and you can finally layer up in your favorite scarf and boots and plan a trip to the pumpkin patch or apple orchard and sip down on fresh apple cider? We can smell it already!

To welcome the season we have a new design on our PoshLiving home page complete with our favorite fall picks, highlighting items that inspires warmth and comfort. See a few of our favorite fall finds below.

Spice up any bedroom ensemble with the Corsica Duvet Cover, a contemporary yarn-dyed herringbone with satin-stitched details. The vibrant burst of color beautifully coordinates with a basic color palette of gray, ivory, taupe or walnut.

If it’s something loud and eccentric, yet cozy and refined, you are craving, the Bella Faux Fur Throw and coordinating decorative pillow may be just the pieces you need to make your room pop.

Perhaps you are in search of a new piece of furniture that makes a style statement. The versatile Curl Tide Flip Top Table can be used as a desk, or table, or a console. However you place it this piece will effortlessly support many distinctive roles. No mistake about it, this table is multi-dimensional, boasting a drawer and flip-out top with four pullout extensions. You may be so excited by its versatility that you overlook in the beginning the stylish grace of its C-shaped supports.

Tell us what you love about Autumn? Do you have a favorite blanket or wreath? We’d love to hear what about this season inspires you!

A Nursery of Our Own

Meet Branin and his adorable son, Lucas.

For the past four years, Branin has been the IT Director (and resident technology guru) here at Posh Headquarters. So when he and his wife Kathy recently welcomed a bustling baby boy into the world, we were happy to add him – and his notably full head of hair – to our fabulous posh family. Of course, Lucas is not only a charming little chap but his posh nursery speaks volumes about his style. Let’s just say that we were smitten with both baby Lucas and his space from the start.

We can’t take the credit for this charming nursery creation but we’d certainly love to! While we’d like to think that we’re rubbing off on Dad, Kathy has more than proven she has an eye for design as a Producer at the award-winning advertising firm, The Martin Agency. The proud parents chose turquoise paint as the bold backdrop to a room filled with contemporary cravings – from a sleek modern crib and bookcase to adorable animal accessories. What’s next on the list for this nursery nest? A set of fun window treatments to tie it all together. After all, every dynamic design is always a posh work in progress.

Here’s how you can get the look of Lucas’ Modern Hoot Nursery.

And here are a few questions for one of our favorite Posh Pops:

Name: Branin Lippincott

Inspirations? Influences?: Per my wife: “We like to mix old and new and take a lot of cues from mid-century modern design. For Lucas’ room, we wanted to create a space we refer to as “his childhood adventure”, pulling in outdoor elements, such as birds and safari animals. The best part about it is that the furniture will grow with him and his changing tastes.”

Describe your design style: Again, per my wife: “Transitional eclectic. Our house is on the newer side, so we tend to choose pieces that are architectural in nature.”

Favorite book?: Whichever Brandon Sanderson book came out most recently.

Website?: PoshTots, of course. If I had to pick a non-Posh site, Ars Technica is one I read daily.

Hobbies: Photography, Biking, Hiking, Travel, Video Games, Live Sound Reinforcement

On my iPod: 40GB worth of music of all types starting from when I was old enough to rip my first CD.

Must-See TV: Mad Men, The Big Bang Theory, Dexter and the sadly passed Firefly.

Favorite expression: “Ooooo” (the cooing sound my son makes when he is happy)

Organized Students

Most youngsters are now in the thick of their first semesters back at school. We relish the excitement our children have for the beginning of the school year. From their joy of shopping for new clothing and school supplies, to their desire and need to keep it all straight and orderly.. at least for the first few weeks, right? featured PoshTots in a nice little piece on keeping kids organized. Our Teddy Organizer made the cut with its roomy cubbies for little treasures and removable galvanized buckets for favored knick-knacks. We think this piece would fit right in with an urban lifestyle, minimalistic playroom, or even in a cute country cottage.

There are so many options for keeping your child organized in style, from Bookcases to Toy Boxes, to Armoires and Media Storage. What is your preferred method of keeping things orderly? Do you prefer a closed door or drawer, or a shelf to display your beloved’s favorite items?
