10. The SF Flower Mart

Almost a year ago to the day, I published a guide to the SF Flower Mart! This is the wholesale market where all of the fabulous florists and restaurants buy their flowers. So, if you’re planning a trip, here’s everything you need to know! My experience with public admission including inventory, pricing, access, and more.

When it comes to trends, I like to review everything the experts say and then narrow them down to just the ones I think will be worthwhile. I mean, what’s the point of following a trend that turns out not to be a trend after all?! So in this article, I’ve done my own research and created my own list of eight 2022 interior design trends that I thought would resonate most with my readers.

8. Fall Frame TV Art

I’m not surprised this one made the list because there are some great, FREE pieces of art in this post! I rounded up 15+ beautiful images that you can download and use on your Frame TV in this post.

This is a little Designer Secret that I shared with you. It’s all about reusing what you already own! In this case, I’m sharing how to use Rub N Buff to transform what you have and give it the look of a European Gold finish.

6. Beautiful Brass Ceiling Lights

Back in 2016, I posted an article that brass was back and six years later, it’s still going strong! And while a flush mount ceiling light should always be practical, that doesn’t mean it can’t be beautiful as well! So here are my top picks for beautiful brass ceiling lights at a variety of price points.

3. Beautiful RH Dupes

As part of my Look for Less Series, I added Restoration Hardware lookalikes. I’ve always found the quality of Restoration Hardware to be good and they style everything so nicely that it’s easy to fall in love, but their items are quite expensive. This post is all about how to achieve the look of RH for less!

2. How To Determine The Chandelier Height Above A Table

In February of this year, I created a design guide to help you determine the proper height for a chandelier.

One question that I hear a lot is what is the right height to hang a chandelier. Well, the answer depends on where you’re hanging it! The height for a chandelier in an entryway or two-story foyer is quite different from the height in a dining area!

In this post, you’ll learn the simple, mathematical formula, plus the design aesthetics to take into consideration to create a beautiful look.

    I love Tidbits and Twine. This site is so informative, and educational.
    I have more of a Transitional style of design but I learned through you that design is classic and timeless.
