HEADED TO HIGH POINT MARKET

by Marisa Marcantonio

As I head to High Point Market, into a world of new furniture and accessories, I start to look forward to the amazing new designs I will come across. The opportunity to access brand new design talent, get inspired and pick up on new trends is what its all about. I would like to give a big thank you to my sponsors this market: Lexington, Taylor Burke and the new to market Ambella Home. I am Southbound for the next few days, so stay tuned for my market finds on my Instagram at @stylebeatblog, many of which I will be sharing as I walk the show. I will also be creating a trend report based on my coverage. If you are interested in learning more about it, let me know by leaving me a message here. In the meantime, here are a few exciting previews that I will get to see in person tomorrow:

On the heels of her Henredon collection, Celerie Kemble is launching outdoor furniture with LaneVenture. I am looking forward to seeing the assortment, and remember how fun it was when her mom Mimi McMakin and founding partner Brooke Huttig launched years ago- it made quite a colorful Palm Beachy splash. She is also debuting painted wood floor tiles with Charleston-based Mirth Studio.

One of my sponsors this market (thank you!), Taylor Burke will be introducing new pieces in vivid colors. I am loving this clean-lined zebra covered brass coffee table called The Kelly.

Seeing bold color take hold in all areas, from accessories to art, it is exciting to embrace the power of brights. New this market, Ambella Home, another one of my kind sponsors, is debuting their architectural Pediment Mirror in the most amazing shade of orange.

BEYOND THE BATH: BRASS BATH ACCESSORIES THAT WILL WORK ANYWHERE

by Marisa Marcantonio

Snappy bathroom accessories can often serve a dual purpose and be useful in other areas, like the living room or nightstand.  My search for great brass accessories led me to this Humbolt collection from Pigeon and Poodle. With a textural wood grain faux bois finish, the brass pieces add a glam element. Use these pieces anywhere, they will fit right in.

The tray set can keep odds and ends at bay on your desk or a shelf

For soap and lotion or even dish detergent, the soap pump

A canister for makeup brushes 

Toothbrushes or pens could fill this slim canister

Use this high sided small dish  it for earrings on your nightstand or soap on the sink

I usually shy away from hard tissue box covers, but this one, with its tactile appeal, I approve of

Not just for the powder room, the waste basket adds some pattern anywhere you need a chic little hit of brass
