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!

Keep it Classic with Black & White

The classic black and white combo brings instant style and sophistication to any space! We love adding touches of this with pillows, ottomans, and most recent anything with a black and white bone inlay!! Sneak peak into a recent purchase of mine- CB2's Taylor Bone Inlay table  (this time I get to be the client) for my Master bedroom!

Moving on to some full on rooms with this stunning combo-- we have found living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, dining rooms and even outdoor patios! We selected our personal favorites that all get the HON approval. The best thing about this combo is that you can use almost any color for a pop of something bright and unexpected: pink- coral- indigo-gold-mustard-green (especially emerald) This can help warm up the space and add a little variety to the overall look!

If you would like to incorporate just a few items see our picks for black and white furniture, artwork, decor and pillows!


Bienvenido a Miami!

We are loving the Miami inspired decor, furniture and artwork that has been popping up all over the place this summer! With any trend it is important to not go overboard… it still needs to feel like your space so go for the pieces that really speak to you and go from there.  A great starting point is a beautiful print or decor, it’s less of an investment and can easily move to another space (guest room/powder bath) when you are ready for something different.

We gathered all of our favorite Miami inspired furniture, art and decor with links to where you can buy! What a great way to make summer last a little longer! Bienvenido a Miami!


9 Marble Tables for Every Style & Budget

There is nothing that we love more than mixing different elements in a room… If you look around your living room and feel like it’s all blending together or it feels dark and dreary than it might be time to trade out one of those wood side tables or coffee tables and freshen up your space with a touch of marble.

We love some of the smaller marble side tables and nesting tables… all great options for someone that doesn’t want to break the bank on a large marble coffee table. We scoured through some of our favorite sources and found some great marble tables in a wide range of prices and sizes to add a new fresh element in your space!

Quick Tip: Grab a tray or a pretty set of coasters to place on your marble coffee table to keep it looking beautiful for longer! Also, have your table periodically resealed to retain the shine and help protect it from future stains.

Nomad Design Tip: If you end up doing a small marble accent table be sure to add another marble element somewhere else in the space. Look for a marble tray or object that you could put out on your coffee table or mantel. This adds some more interest in the space and makes your design decision feel intentional- not random!
