Monochromatic Monday :: Etched in Stone

There’s an old French proverb that says, “Write injuries in sand, kindnesses in marble.” Such a lovely way to express the idea that, while negative thoughts and emotions slip from memory, we should keep the gracious acts of others front and center in our hearts. There’s nothing that conveys permanence better than marble (just take… read more

Bring It Home :: Hint of Mint

Sayonara polar vortex…it’s officially spring! This kitchen really captures the best of what spring has to offer. Its window backsplash lets in bright light and a view of the outdoors, and the woven basket lights hint at beach days and the promise of summer. I’m looking forward to cooking with a different lineup of fruits… read more

Bring It Home :: Design Within Reach

In my last edition of Bring it Home I featured a standard Ikea kitchen and a budget friendly DIY, but this room is slightly less attainable (unless a kitchen renovation is in your realm of possibility). But no matter, there are always ways to incorporate elements from an inspirational image into your home. It’s simply… read more

Bring It Home :: A Personal Touch

At first glance, you’d never guess this was a standard Ikea kitchen. The space feels warm, aged, and filled with personal touches… most notably those leather drawer pulls. Owner Kristan Cunningham replaced their aluminum handles with strips of leather (only 39 cents each) and rivets to keep them in place. In my opinion this is… read more

Bring It Home :: Charmed, I’m Sure

Cristina here, and I just moved into a new place where the bathroom is yet to be updated… and while it’s not what I would have chosen, I’m trying (so hard!) to appreciate the beauty in its pink and black 1950′s tiles. A few cracks in the wall, less than perfect grout, a missing tile or two —… read more

Bring It Home :: Kitchen Caprese

Cristina here, and to me Memorial Day weekend is always a short, tantalizing taste of summer. An amuse-bouche that gets me excited for the upcoming pool days, entertaining friends, summer fruits, maybe even a bit of travel… And this sunny kitchen on the Italian island of Capri embodies all of the above! The space was originally a… read more

Hi ladies! Cristina here, and if you’re like me, at one point or another you’ve fallen head over heels for the color of the moment. And how could we not? With all of the gorgeous magazine layouts and blog inspiration it’s easy to get swept up in the latest trends. In my case, this most often leads… read more

Bring it Home :: Keeping Calm

Cristina here, and I’m gearing up to host my first family Thanksgiving at my own house this year. Just typing the words I can feel my heart rate quicken and my mind racing with thoughts of turkeys, pies, and my small oven. In preparation for this momentous occasion (and to prevent a possible meltdown) I’m… read more

Do You Dare :: Make A Splash

I (Michelle) will be the first to admit that I’m far from a top chef in the kitchen (and my roommates will attest to that), but I’ve been newly inspired by these beautiful backsplashes to spruce up my space and make my cooking comeback. Whether you’re going for a natural pebble stone or a colorful tiled mosaic,… read more

Do You Dare :: Worldly Walls

Michelle here, and I’m so excited to be one of the two newest additions to the Camille Styles Team (have you met Coco?). Welcome to the first installment of Do You Dare, where I’ll be shedding some light on the edgiest trends of the moment, and asking you all for your expert opinions on the matter. First… read more
