....And while we're talking holiday parties here's the cozy lounge that we created for Hotel Vitale's recent holiday celebration. When we're designing a space we typically find one or two pieces that we really want to incorporate and use those as a starting point for the rest of the design. For this event those inspiration pieces were our dark green steamer trunk and a vintage plaid wool blanket that I scooped up at a recent flea market. They gave off a cozy mountain lodge meets industrial vibe that we just loved! We stuck with a color palette of green, cream, and brown to create that wintery lodge aesthetic and then we brought in gold and brass accents to give the area a bit of holiday sparkle. I'm a firm believer that holiday events require sparkle!

Don't those photos make you want to stop what you are doing, make some hot cocoa and curl up with a good book in front of a fire? We'd be happy to recreate this set-up in your home ;)
