As decorators and designers, we’re always on the lookout for inspiration wherever we go. You never know when the perfect colors of the sunset will inspire the next color palette in a master bedroom or the movement of the wallpaper in a hotel lobby will have you yearning to complete a custom fabric for a few throw pillows. Either way, here are a few images that team LED found inspiring!
Now that Cyber Monday is over and Black Friday is long gone, Team LED wants to help you out with a few gifts you might be missing. So we surveyed our crew and gathered presents that are perfect for a few types of people in our lives.
Every once in awhile we’re asked to contribute our opinion for local or national media outlets… see our latest below:
For most college freshmen, moving into the dorms this fall will be their first foray into independent living, but that doesn’t mean it comes without rules: no holes in the walls, no paint, no removing furniture, no damage to the room. But don’t despair, there’s plenty of ways to make the room your own, and make it suit your needs.
Every six months the world’s most popular and upcoming design brands make the trek to Las Vegas to showcase their products. We’re so lucky to be right in the center of it all! Market was a stunner (as usual!) with a plethora of new vendors, trends and stylish décor we can’t wait to show you! So without further ado, these are our Top 10 Winter Market Moments!
We love helping our #APJ readers out, keep the #AskAPJ questions coming! Annie tagged us on Instagram asking for help with the design of her narrow format living room & dining room. She shared the following picture as well. She says, “Here is a head scratcher. Our loooooong living room features some of our favorite antique pieces, but lacks color etc. We’re looking to replace dining chairs, but what style and color? How about different curtains? Ack! Help a design loving yet challenged gal! P.S. did I mention besides antique pieces and the floor I loathe the color brown?”
We’ve talked a lot about color this year! From our Feng Shui tips on our Instagram #AskAPJ posts, to our forecast about trendsetting colors for the upcoming seasons. As usual, we got yo’ back APJ readers! We’re going to make it easy for you, here’s a refresher course:

For most of the country, temperatures have been dropping since late August. For us Las Vegans it’s still in the 80’s. Nonetheless, Fall is just around the corner… this coming Wednesday to be exact. With the change in seasons comes a natural shift in design. Here at APJ we have an idea of which trends should make their way into your home and those that will fade away with summer! Wanna know how? I wish I could say it’s because we’re psychic, but we’re not (boo!). It might have something to do with our huge appetite for design (hello my name is Lisa, I am addicted to Pinterest & Instagram), or possibly it’s because we attended the always popular seminar “Ahead of the Curve” during Las Vegas Market last month…
We’re often looking for a design solution to bring our home or business to the next level. We tend to shy away from the thought of using large scale murals for a variety of reasons, such as the fear of looking tacky, but there’s a classy way of doing it! Here are some installations that prove it can be a great option for all of us.
Earlier this weekend and last weekend we flooded you with tons of pictures from our week at Las Vegas Market! I sure hope you enjoyed viewing them as much as we enjoyed taking them. If you need to catch up, check out Market Roundup: Boutique Home Décor and Celebrating 10 Years Part 1. The fun isn’t over yet though, here are the rest of our findings.
