1. Ginger Jar Wish List

    the best ginger jars - roundup by Fashionable HostessEver since I shared Kelley Nan’s summer tablescape that featured a gorgeous floral centerpiece in an oversized Ginger Jar, I have been on the hunt for Ginger Jars of my own! I scoured the internet and found so many good ones, from Furbish Studio which has great classic Chinese society and landscape ones for $60 {here}, to Williams Sonoma which has a wide assortment in size and colors (some red, some blue, some grey!) from $60-$250 {here}. Then Design Darling has the cutest Ginger Jar themed accessories, from $10 Ginger Jar match boxes {here} to Ginger Jar prints for only $25 {here}! Shop more finds below, I am seriously struggling to narrow down which I should buy… if not mulitple!

    In Miami, it is just as important to have a beautiful outdoor space as it is to have a gorgeous indoor space because you truly spend SO much time outside. Whether it’s hanging by the pool or dining al fresco, our outdoor space has become like a second family room, so today I wanted to share all the details of how I decorated it with the help of Frontgate! I am truly in love with how it turned out because it is totally my house’s style while being incredibly comfortable and outdoor safe. Here are all of the deets…

    To make the outdoor space perfect for hanging and dining I wanted to divide it into two unique spaces; a sitting area where we could watch the kids splash in the pool during the day or come evening, lounge with friends for cocktails and wine. And second, a dining space where we could enjoy lunch or an evening bbq. To create the two separate spaces, I placed an outdoor rug {the Mondrian in indigo} on one end to designate the seating area. Over it I placed a modular sofa, a coffee table, and two large cozy club chairs. The couch is the Madeira Modular Sectional, a whicker couch with built-in cushioning making it really comfortable, but also great for wet bottoms! The pillows on top are both “outdoor pillows,” a neutral chevron and a preppy air blue print- which look fancy but can resist rain and humidity! The couch is sold by piece so you can make the couch as long as you would like, or even an L-shape. Then the coffee table, the Emory Teak Coffee Table, is a great size for putting out appetizers, drinks, and flowers. Across from my couch I placed two Emerson lounge chairs in white which are so big and cushiony, they practically look like indoor pieces. The best part is the Sunbrella slipcover on the chairs pull off easily to go in the wash!

    For the dining space, I chose the Emerson faux wood dining table and six chairs, four Emerson dining chairs and then two Emerson arm chairs for the heads of the table. The table looks like vintage wood, but is made from all-weather resin and crushed stone {it is insanely heavy FYI!}. The chairs are tall, elegant, and cushioned {again with slipcovers that easily pull off and can go in the wash}.

    To complete the space, I hung three gold Darlana Pendants {medium size} from Circa lighting. {Note, these aren’t specifically guaranteed for outdoors, but under my patio which is safe from the rain, they have worked fabulously!}. Hope you love seeing more of our Miami home. Check out more rooms in my Decor section and stay tuned on my instagram with hashtag #MiaChateauFH for more photos of my house in action.

  3. Master Bedroom Update #MIACHATEAUFH

    My Chic Nest Amanda Bed in Blue Velvet on fashionable HostessBedroom Decor on Fashionable HostessKate Spade Round Milk Vase on Fashionable Hostess

    While I have shared a few glimpses of my new bedroom in past blog posts or on my instagram, I am officially ready to reveal the finished look on the blog with our new bed, new bedside tables, and new table lamps completing the look. So, welcome to my cozy bedroom haven!! Our beautiful velvet baby blue bed comes from My Chic Nest and perfectly enough is named “The Amanda Bed” {a fab coincidence!!}!! My Chic Nest has a wide range of stunning beds and headboards, especially if you love a whimsical feel, and with so many fabrics, colors, and details to choose from, each pieces feels truly one-of-a-kind. I wan’t sure if I made the right choice when ordering the blue, but from the moment it arrived I fell in love because it completely transformed our room! {And I also can’t get over how perfectly the color matches our Boll & Branch organic bedding – you may remember that I featured it in this post from our Nashville house.} Our bedside tables I have had my eye on for what feels like forever; I just love the elegance of the shape and the tassel pulls {they come from Bungalow 5}. Then our new bedside table lamps were the best find!! Can we talk about how hard it is to find an oversized lamp that is well-priced?!! These Addison Table Lamps from Z Gallerie are seriously huge in size {18″W x 18″D x 33″H}, elegant in design, and I love the white linen lamp shade.

    We are so lucky to have a stunning window over-looking our backyard in our bedroom, so I wanted to create a cozy sitting area alongside it. Here we got incredibly lucky because so many pieces from our Nashville house magically found new homes in our new house, specifically in this nook. Since my husband no longer has an office in our home in Miami, we were able to use these Restoration Hardware floor lamps in our bedroom {one on either side of the chairs}, and then two Oroa chairs that were formerly in our family room were the perfect seating for this space. Our simple gold side table completed the look, housing pretty vases, picture frames, and my favorite candles. Hope you love the way this cozy space came to life!!
