I was probably the biggest skeptic when I heard two years ago that my favorite overseas show was heading to Miami for its debut in America. It’s been two years now, I have attended both shows, walked all aisles, met new designers, found innovative products and love chillin’ in Miami…so I guess I am no longer a skeptic and more of a fan!
Happy to share some global greats with you from this past Maison&Objet show which took place in Miami May 10-13.

For many of us a great way to have your personality pop in your home is to update your style through decorative accessories, perhaps a more affordable option than replacing a sofa, chair or ottoman…and a quick fix to any room in your home!
Choices today can vary through color, material, texture, weave and pattern. Trim detail is another way of adding dimension such as cross stitch accents, metallic trim detailing, fringe, pom-poms and piping.
Most of us have a color scheme defined already by the larger items in our home like a sofa or chair so work with updating these items with colors that will compliment these pieces. Sometimes that means bringing a bit of contrast into the room…it’s not always good to match your pillows to the exact tone of your furniture. Try experimenting with patterns and colors out of your comfort zone to update your style. Many stores today have a 48 hour return policy so you can take home your choices to see you made the right design choice!
Some fun finds both local as well as overseas…
