I HEART black and white.  When selecting big pieces of furniture for a home, I stick with neutrals. If you have a neutral base of greys, whites, blacks, and taupe, then you can layer pops of color in the art, pillows, and accent decor. This modern West Elm bed is my favorite right now. I have it in my master bedroom and it’s easy to assemble and has simple lines. Recently, I spent a week at HOTELette Nashville and, every morning, I would sip on my coffee and listen to Sinatra on the turntable.  I mean… sounds dreamy, right?!  I love a good turntable and every HOTELette has one.  While I’m traveling, I love to look through the Wildsam Field Guides.  They have City Guides to all the cool cities like Austin, Nashville, Detroit, LA, and several more. Since it’s a little chilly, I’ve been living in this sweatshirt.  I stole it from the Swiss Mister and I may never give it back!  It’s the most comfortable sweatshirt ever.  ’Tis the season to curl up on this comfy sofa with a hot chocolate in your Carhartt sweatshirt and binge watch your fav Netflix series.  Prop your feet up on this stunning and versatile coffee table.  I have it at HOTELette Austin and get a ton of compliments on it!! Recently, I discovered these felt boards and put them in both HOTELette’s… They say, “Welcome to HOTELette… xoxo.”  Clever, huh?!  jk  For the Nashville house, I put this black guitar and it looks soooo chic. These velvety pillows are my favorite pillows right now because of the price point and they come in multiple sizes and colors. Another detail I love are these West Elm oversized rods.  They are my favorite curtain rod and I just installed them in 2 houses!  I love them!!  xx
