INSPIRED | celebrity closets

What girl does not dream of a magnificent walk in closet? I could drool over these beauties all day. Forget the kitchens, dining rooms, and beautiful furnishings- closets are often the most lavish room in a celebrity’s home. I am slightly obsessed with these wonderful spaces and am now extremely inspired to create a walk in closet of my own.
 Take a peek into a few celebrity closets below.

Don't be afraid to spice up your own closet. Here's how:

Add a chandelier or pendant lighting

Add a rug and accessories

and maximize your space with storage

ACCESSORIZE | coffee tables

Wide open spaces... what do you do with them? 
I'm not a fan of clutter, but I also like beautiful accessories. 
So, how do you decorate a coffee table without making it look cluttered? 

TRAY |  keep it contained on a tray 

BIG & SMALL |  a few big pieces cut down on clutter 

MIX IT UP |  create texture by mixing silver, pottery, glass, wood, and books 

HEIGHT |  orchids are great for adding height but not blocking the view, 
and they are beautiful!

COLOR | coffee tables are the perfect place to add pops of color with books, 
flowers, and other odds and ends

STACK IT UP | don't fan out your magazines and books, but neatly stack them and top them off with a fun bowl, shell, or something quirky and personal 

GROUPS | Grouping books and objects together makes tabletops look intentional and not an after thought

MONOCHROME | decorating with one color simplifies any look 

FLOWERS | common theme in pictures above: flowers! they are the easiest way to make ANY space beautiful. there is no simpler pleasure than fresh flowers - love, love, love

 table accessories we have here at JMH. 

Until next time,

It's almost the weekend, so prop your feet up on one of the most versatile furniture pieces- the ottoman. Ottomans have become a staple piece in nearly every home. You can sit on them, lay on them, prop your feet on them, and they can even act as an accent table. 
They are available in all shapes, sizes, and colors, so they can fit into any room. 
Spice up your ottoman by adding a tray and fun accessories.

Check out some great examples of how to use ottomans below:

TIPS & TRICKS | raise the roof

 Do you have tall ceilings or low ceilings? It doesn't matter, because you should always hang your window treatments approximately 3 inches below your trim or ceiling. The higher you hang the curtain rod, the taller your ceilings will appear. And who doesn't want tall ceilings? Simply put:

very helpful website 

Perfect example of tall ceilings that look as grand as they can with tall drapes. 

 Ignore how short your windows are, and raise the window treatments high.

Drapes are not just for traditional homes, but also look great in contemporary spaces.

I love how they recessed the rod into the ceiling. Using ceiling mounted zip rod allows you to take the drapes as high as possible, and allows for easy sliding. 

Simple and neutral is still grand and beautiful. 

 The simpler the rod, the better. Don't distract from those beautiful drapes. 

Just love the whole look. 

Also, keep in mind, drapes can be as expensive as you want them to be. Ikea has great panels for an awesome price. Click here for our favorite Ikea panel style.
If you want gorgeous custom drapes, we can help you with that, too. We have tons of fabrics to select from.

Window treatments can completely transform rooms! 

Until next time,
