Power Couples!

This week we are taking a look at our favorite "power couples!" We love a dynamic duo and that applies to furniture as well. Nesting tables- sets of table lamps- interesting bookends- a set of boxes...you get the idea! The power of two in a room is clear- it helps to add balance and harmony into your space. We are not saying that everything has to be "matchy matchy"- but if your side tables are not the same think about doing a pair of table lamps that match! This will help keep the space feeling less busy and tie everything together. 

We have gathered our favorite duos below! Click on the image to find out where to purchase and be sure to let us know your favorites!


We Can See Clearly Now

One trend that we believe is here to stay is lucite (aka acrylic/acrylic glass). We have seen it in lighting, furniture, hardware and accessories. It adds an instant wow factor to any space and works excellent in smaller spaces in that it adds a lightness to furniture pieces- an acrylic coffee table is the perfect solution if you have a lot of heavy wood pieces throughout the space. Just make sure there is a little pop of lucite somewhere else (even a mirror or drapery hardware). 

When combined with a metal (brass or polished silver) this material really comes alive. We have gathered our absolute favorite lucite pieces from several of our go-to designers... click the images to find out where to purchase these beauties! 


The Power of a Console

We all have that space in our home where we think.. “something is missing.” Or it feels a little empty and lacking personality! Before deciding to FILL it with a large and heavy looking piece of furniture look into doing a console with a beautiful mirror or piece of artwork above!

They come in an array of sizes, styles, colors and price points so we wanted to show you some of our favorites and be sure to check out our instagram @houseofnomaddesign to see examples of console styling done just right!

Due to the skinnier depth of these pieces it will still keep a nice flow throughout your home and will help to anchor a mirror or piece of art. Click on the images to be taken to the site for more details on where to purchase!
