before and after

Who doesn't love a before and after furniture makeover? This one will knock your socks off. The before picture would never be allowed to enter my house. It is dark and dated. The after is gorgeous. It's amazing what a fresh coat of white paint, new glass panels and fabulous hardware will do! I found this featured on Better After and they do a great job with showcasing makeovers on items around the home.

a beautiful fabric

This fabric is just beautiful to me. By Designers Guild, it is described as "a stylized floral trail in a crewel work style, embroidered on a dyed cotton ground." Would look exquisite in a dining room with chocolate brown walls.

america's best selling dining room chairs

Country Living magazine has compiled a list of the top selling dining room chairs in the country according to six different furniture companies. All six vary in shape, design and price point. If you were to choose new DR chairs, which one would you choose?

West Elm - Curved Upholstered Chair @ $299

Thomasville - Fredericksburg Chair @ $329

Ikea - Henriksdal Chair @ $99.99

Crate and Barrel - Basque Chair @ $199

Restoration Hardware - Martine Chair @ $470

Wrangler Home - Chesapeake Chair @ $429

I am going to say that my favorite is the Martine chair by Restoration Hardware. I am a sucker for the tufting in the back. It has a really nice shape as well. Happy chair shopping!

happy saturday

Happy Saturday to you! I love beautiful bedding, may it be practical or not. I found this Eve bedding designed by Serena and Lily via Layla Grace, which may be my favorite new website. My top 5 favorite things about this ensemble:
  1. The aqua and melon color combination is gorgeous
  2. That tufted headboard
  3. The same edging on the euro sham is on the dust ruffle
  4. The small moroccan design on the standard pillow
  5. The embroidery on the duvet is so pretty

    Here are a few more bedding ensembles by Serena and Lily:

In honor of the new site, I leave you with black and yellow room inspiration.

Remind you of anything?

Frames wallpaper by Graham and Brown via Design Public.

This fantastic wallpaper by Graham and Brown can transform any room into a unique space. Use it on one wall as an accent or even the entire room for that major WOW factor. I think it would be perfect for a child's "art wall" in a bedroom or playroom. Put it in your powder room and leave markers out during a party for some friendly artwork. You get the point. $40/roll

welcome to liz lassiter interiors

Welcome! This is the story of a girl who has decided instead of working for yet another design firm, she's now going to be calling the shots! After five years of working in the design business, I now proudly introduce the opening of my very own design blog, Liz Lassiter Interiors.

I'm a sucker for good design, obsessed with fabrics and wallpapers, sofas with beautifully plumped down cushions, modern furniture that evokes a feel of days gone by, and the most pale beach glass blue shade imaginable. Liz Lassiter Interiors has been created to highlight what the current design trends are and how to use them (on any budget), and yet stay true to all design styles and immulate how to let them blend together seamlessly in your home.
