Benjamin Moore Advance Hunter Green

I am really drawn to this winter color especially for the holidays. There is something luxe and celebratory about emerald. Many shades of green are considered emerald, but the darker and more rich the color the better. I think the lighter shades can get cheesy real fast.

I am thrilled to bring you a lovely house tour today. Ashley Fletcher and her husband moved to LA from New York a year ago with their baby daughter Coco. Some rentals are so plain to begin with and completely lack character. This family-friendly 2 bedroom home in Hancock Park would be my dream rental. It boasts high ceilings, bold wall paper choices, and contemporary paint colors while still maintaining quite a bit of traditional charm.
Ashley, has impeccable taste which she attributes to being a Pinterest addict (aren't we all?) and drawing inspiration from bloggers and Instagram. However it's clear she has her own style and I'm obsessed. Ashley went to Parsons School of Design and graduated with a degree in fashion design which has been her focus for the last ten years. However she recently changed directions and went pack to school at FIT for interiors and its obvious she is very talented and I cant wait to see more from her! I love style that doesn't shy away from color and Ashley's home manages to offer a nice balance. And for only having lived there a year, it looks so well-styled and "done".
Ashley decided to try to keep her living room a more neutral palette. I am coveting those Moroccan wedding blanket pillows, the lush fiddle leaf fig tree (why can't mine lo like that?), and her excellent taste in decorative objects.
Ashley frequents the Rose Bowl Flea Market, some Ikea and West Elm. Shop her style:

Sadly summer is winding down (insert crocodile tears here). I get so depressed when I go shopping this time of year and all the new fall clothes are black, dark gray & burgundy. So dark. One trend I am loving for Fall is the beige blazer. A staple piece that can carry you through every season minus the winter-y months. I just like to deny that winter is coming as long as possible so summer whites mixed with a light blazer seems like a perfect transition.
Get the look for fall - I rounded up 5 cute options all for $100 or less:
