1. A Warm Welcome for the Holidays

    Threshold for Target Mirrored TrayAmanda-6

    I am beyond excited to start decorating Chateau FH for the Holidays! Two things I love to do when hosting Holiday parties in my home is 1. Decorate my foyer so guests open the door to festive scenery, and 2. Greet guests with Holiday cocktails… because nothing kicks off a party better than a cocktail in hand.

    For this holiday season’s decor, I love a touch of shimmer, so I am decorating my entryway console with a Pinecone Tree and a Glitter Twig Tree, arranged amongst a 9 foot strand of Faux Garland. For cocktails, I plan to greet guests with a “warm welcome” … literally warm, with Hot Toddies served in Irish Coffee Cups, topped off with a cinnamon stick.

    I always like to place my drinks on a tray so I also have the option to circulate the party and serve guests and this Target Threshold Mirrored Tray adds the perfect touch of Holiday glam for the occasion. I can hardly wait for all of the merriment to begin!!

  3. Store Spotlight: Kulture Bomb

    When it comes to decorating your home, items like your couch, TV stand, and dining table are obvious elements on your checklist. But the pieces that transform your ‘house’ into your ‘home’ are those one-of-a kind details. Pieces that no one has seen – things that really pop. Whether it’s that bowl on your bookshelf or that side table with sleek legs, it can be small or little, but always seems to catch your guests’ eye. Today I want to spotlight an LA-based store that carries all of these pieces encapsulated into one cool store- unique, shocking affordable, and definitely has a “wow” factor. Meet Kulture Bomb.

    When I read the store’s “About” section it really sealed the deal. “When then boyfriend and girlfriend Paul and Nina decided to move in together, they ran into the one big issue all couples face when deciding to take the plunge and share an address – what to do with all their STUFF? Realizing hers was too “femme” and his too “bachelor” the couple decided to sell off anything they didn’t both love and set out to fill in the gaps with items that fit both their tastes. After months of hitting all the “go-to” home décor suspects in and around Los Angeles and coming up frustratingly short, they came to the realization that what they were after was close to if not impossible to find – a one-stop-shop with an eclectic mix of new and vintage home décor items that were interesting, unique and most importantly wouldn’t break the bank. Realizing there was clearly a void in the marketplace for a shop such as this they decided to set out and create the kind of store that had a little something for everyone – it was then that Kulture Bomb was born.”

    What did I choose from the collection? As you saw on my instagram, their Geometric Gold Jars {here and here} look fantastic on my coffee table {above!}. Then head over to my bedroom {below!} and see how I use their Studded Ceramic Box for housing jewelry. I am also obsessed with their Christian Lacroix journals; they are so professional to bring to meetings {or the perfect Holiday Gift for a girly girl}. Then for those of you who have some bigger ticket shopping todo, they have an amazing assortment of unique furniture. I love their Acrylic chairs, their vintage console table if you are craving a pop of color, and then they carry Marquee Lights which are all the rage right now!

    So head on over to KultureBomb.com where FH readers will score 20% off when they enter FH20 at checkout!
