1 Jot down all your thoughts on life in this fab little notebook. 2 We may be a month into the year, but it's not too late to start this fun Q&A a day. 3 Close-up of a chic bar by friends Parker Kennedy at this year's Inspiration House for the St. Philip's Tour of Homes and Antique Show here in Atlanta. Definitely visit if you're in the area. 4 You may be wondering what this is. A lucite bed! Amazing, huh? 5 This bag is too chic to use only at the beach. I would definitely repurpose it around the house in between traveling. 6 Jonathan Adler's latest coaster set is my favorite so far. Amazing color combos and that pattern is perfect.

After seeing all the snowy pictures from Paris and New York this past weekend, I decided a winter whites post was in order. Whether your take on the look is an accessory here or there or an all out white-out, either way is sure to brighten up a dreary winter day.
1 Silver Coaster, Calypso St. Barth's, $12.00 2 Pair of Faux Bamboo Directors Chairs, Porter & Plunk, $4,800.00 3 Coaster Set, Pieces, $36.00 4 Charles Cowhide Mirror, Mecox Gardens, $1,150.00 5 Cowhide Rug, Plantation, $395.00 - $525.00 6 Cowhide Lamp, Madison Ave Gifts, $375.00 7 Cowhide Pillow, Room & Board, $129.00 8 Hide X-Bench, Pieces, $950.00
Cowhide is great for its amazing texture, durability, and its ability to mix well with a large range of patterns and styles. A word of warning: unless you're going for a western ski lodge look, it's best left in small doses. Think one or two pieces per room.

Whether you're a Carrara or a Calacatta girl, chances are you're into the marble craze. Personally, I love it for its timeless appeal, as well as the fact that it pairs so nicely with other materials like wood, brass, and of course the fan favorite, white cabinetry.

As temperatures dip around the country, you may be paying a little more attention to your mantel — whether or not your fireplace underneath can light a fire is another matter. My favorite look is a symmetrical one like Ashley Whittaker's, pictured above. When in doubt, you really can't go wrong with simple symmetry and I'm always a sucker for a blue room.
If you're a fan of Scalamandre's beloved zebra pattern, then your day is looking a lot brighter thanks to their latest partnership with Lenox. Glassware, decanters, plates, and platters are simply begging to be paired with coordinating wallpaper, curtains, tablecloths, and upholstery. Zebra fever, ladies and gentleman!

Discovering a new company is always a thrill for me and even more exciting to introduce it here on KM. Burrow & Hive was started by two sisters with a passion for pattern design and printing. Their scarves are handmade in India and everything else is handmade in the US. I love not only their colorways and patterns, but their offering of pillows, tabletop, and accessories.

Do you read Garance Doré? I absolutely love her fresh take on everything from careers to beauty, all seen through the eyes of a French girl living in America. Garance often pairs her narratives with illustrations and has recently made a few of her prints available for purchase on her site. Do take a look!

I am a longtime fan of artist Caitlin McGauley and was beyond delighted to discover her watercolors have been transformed into beautiful porcelain trays. They'll look perfect atop vanities, nightstands, dressers, and more!
Jute Wrapped Lamp Base | Giraffe | Scalloped Top Accent Table | Accent Table with Drawer | Green Lamp with Acrylic Base | Black Grosgrain Pillow | Chrome Stool | Coral Accent Table | White Lattice Mirror | Coral Grosgrain Pillow | Turquoise Wicker Basket | Ginger Jar Lamp
I'm absolutely dying over the latest home collection at Target. The tables, the lamps...that amazing turquoise wicker basket. I see a trip in my near future!
