Win One of My Icons Collection Designs from Lamps Plus!

Posted by

I’m thrilled to have my designs featured as part of the exclusive Icons Collections from Lamps Plus! The Icons Collection is comprised of designers who were asked to design a shade pattern that is unique and available exclusively at Lamps Plus for a limited time.

Here’s a look at my Bamboo Trellis design:

I really like the classics when it comes to design motifs, but then giving them a more modern twist. For this shade design, I took inspiration from the trellis work on vintage bamboo furniture, and then made it a little bolder and more updated.

The pattern is also customizable in the Lamps Plus Design Your Own feature, which gives you the ability to select the pattern, color, and base. You can create any look to fit your room!

To make this even more fun, Lamps Plus is launching an exciting sweepstakes where you can win one of five Icons Collection table lamps. Enter to win here. After you’ve entered, you can earn extra entries by referring your friends and increase your chances of winning.

Photostyling Before and After: My Dining Room (and a bit of giving back with Joss and Main)

Posted by

IMG_1155bHi Everyone! I’m back with a peek at my re-styled Dining Room today. I loved making this space look gorgeous for Ronda Carman‘s book Designers at Home. This one is purely for “Entertainment Value”–pun intended.


I didn’t mix any of the permanent furnishings up in this room for the shoot, but rather styled my table with my Tobi Fairley Home Faux Bois fabric, great chargers from Dransfield and Ross, pink dotted and milk glass vintage glassware, and my favorite antique dishes, a gift from my friend Kathy Greeley.


I love how the mixture of the new and old dishes including the Wedgewood White plate and the Marc Blackwell striped charger makes my traditional Hickory Chair dining furniture, much less serious!

Here at my top 3 tips for gorgeous entertaining at home…

1. Don’t be afraid to use the good china even if it’s not a special occasion. What are you waiting for? Everyday is special enough to treat you and your friends with care. So go on–unpack that gorgeous china today!

2. Be sure to mix it up! Mixing old and new, expensive treasures and budget finds, gold and silver…anything goes as long as you have a plan. Find unifying elements like a fabric or your floral arrangement to tie the whole look and color scheme together.

3. Treat with a treat. I love to buy a goodie for each guest and wrap it up with gorgeous trimmings. Everyone loves to feel special, yet it need not be expensive to be thoughtful. So don’t break the bank, but do take the time and effort to give your guests a gift. They deserve it and you will feel like a superstar when you see their excitement.

So here’s my how my Dining Room looked before the festive table setting and that pop of pink.


The re-styled version of this space was just featured in a full page spread of the August 2013 issue of Texas Home and Living with a few other great images from Ronda’s book–how exciting! You can see TH&L’s digital edition here.


So what do you think about the way I spruced up my Dining Room? Isn’t it amazing how the punch of pink makes this room lively and fun?  I love to going to the trouble to make my entertaining just perfect.

And speaking of making things just perfect–that’s what Dwell With Dignity does for many homeless and impoverished people. One of my favorite Charities, Dwell with Dignity does room makeovers for those in need. They even put food on the table for these less-fortunate individuals. Amazing, right?

Well I am very THRILLED to announce that I have curated a charity tag sale with Joss and Main and it’s starting tonight at 9pm EST. A portion of the proceeds is going to support Dwell with Dignity in helping many deserving people live more beautiful lives who couldn’t do so on their own. Please visit my Curate for a Cause sale and buy, buy, buy!

Thanks for peeking at my Dining Room and please don’t forget to visit Joss and Main and my Curate for a Cause tag sale tonight starting at 9pm EST. You can make your Dining Room or any space in your home look gorgeous with the help of the many beautiful items I have selected especially for you in my tag sale. Plus, you can feel great while shopping by helping Dwell with Dignity in the process.

Happy Dining and Happy Shopping! xo,

Tobi Signature



p.s. Don’t forget that our giveaway for Designers at Home goes through Friday at noon CST. So leave a comment on yesterday’s post with what you most love about my re-styling efforts to be entered to win.  Good luck!

Today, I’m featuring the Seawright Chair, designed by Tara Seawright for the New York PALECEK showroom!

Final Side Seawright

Final Back Seawright

What a fun and colorful take on a traditional frame! Tara Seawright is a New York City designer who has been practicing for almost two decades. She describes her own style as “casually elegant,” and her designs are enriched by her expertise in fine art and antiques.

Tara Seawright

When asked about Tara’s vision for the chair, PALECEK said that her “inspiration was to design a chair that could make a room. To that end, Seawright started with an attention grabbing fuschia frame and continued with a plush grass green seat and a blossoming seat back of bright spring colors. To top it off, she uses a shocking zebra print fabric for the outside back and pulled to the front as trim for the seat and inside back.”

The design is very versatile, and Tara imagines that the chair could be used in a dining room, a formal living area, a sitting area in a hallway, a library, or even in a breakfast room.

So, whether your favorite of these five chairs is Tara’s “Seawright Chair” or any of the others, vote above OR visit the contest page on PALECEK’s Facebook page. To get the scoop on the other chairs in the contest, visit the following blogs who are also spreading the word on the contest:
