Decorating with Histoire: Mini Edition

We loved little Mila’s music-inspired nursery featured on Apartment Therapy. A mostly black and white palette with a bold rug makes a statement yet the dominant white keeps the room a calm place for a baby but modern for the adults.

See the rest of Mila’s nursery designed by Jenika Kurtz, and photographed by Jessica Comingore on Apartment Therapy here. Get the look of Mila’s nursery with the items we’ve put together below.

Trend: Ikat

Ikat is a dyeing technique used to pattern textiles. The word ‘ikat’ means to bind, tie or wind around. This pattern has been popular for ages and in recent years has come back into interior and fashion trends in full force.

Style Set: Jessie from Style & Pepper

Wardrobe stylist and fashion blogger, Jessie of Style & Pepper, is with us today for Style Set. Jessie recently moved right outside of the big apple to Hoboken, New Jersey. She has a closet full of colorful vintage clothing and a knack for mixing patterns. Fashion isn’t her only talent, she is the queen of DIY projects and has also created a cozy home full of vintage items.

I’m loving this Rope Dye pillow from Mercado Global and think that it would be one of the perfect finishing touches to pull our new family room together.  The dye technique used reminds me of the beach, and would fit perfectly with the vintage nautical touches throughout our home. I was even more excited to see that it’s from Guatemala, which is a country near and dear to my husband’s heart - he lived there during part of the time we were dating and we’ve always wanted to go back together.  It would be so special to support the artisans who continue the traditional Mayan culture in this way!  I was thinking that it would look great tossed on our sofa, and I’d add these vintage brass propeller-candle-holders on our coffee table to complete the look!

Thank you for being with us today Jessie!

Inspiration from the Oscars: Missi Pyle

We were so happy to see Missi Pyle in a cruelty-free dress designed by Valentina Delfino made of mineral-dyed silk at the Oscars on Sunday. The light aqua blue was a refreshing sight on the red carpet, and a reminder that spring is on it’s way.

Inspired by Missi’s dress we put a few items together from Histoire.

Style Set: Tobe of Because It’s Awesome

Today we are introducing a new series on the Histoire blog called Style Set where we ask different bloggers to pick one of their favorite items from Histoire, and pair it with another item. First up we have Tobe from Because It’s Awesome. Tobe is a lettering artist living in Kansas City, and is currently redecorating her new house.

Tobe says, "I can’t help but admire Histoire’s commitment to ecological responsibility, be it from supporting the artisan communities that make these beautiful pieces or ensuring that I’m bringing unique, responsibly made items into my home. As an advocate of shopping my local thrift stores and antique malls to find the most one-of-a-kind pieces, I also appreciate the global impact of giving old items new life. In addition to being unique, I find that these items are often better made to stand the test of time, and those are two qualities that truly make a house a home.

"I am definitely loving the Rope Dye pillow (in fact, I bought it on sight!). I love the handmade quality, and how easily it complements any aesthetic, be it glam or modern or virtually anywhere inbetween. My first thought was how incredible it would look when paired with this luxe faux fur throw from Calypso St. Barth. Perfect for the living room sofa or to add a luxurious touch to the bedroom.
