This week on Dear Alice, Suz brings up an interesting topic about taste and how it is defined. Taste is incredibly elusive, subjective to the eye of the beholder. Jess, Suz, and Cori explore how their tastes developed and their thoughts on how taste is ever evolving and changing. They agree that it needs to be adapting and inspired, changing as a person grows throughout their life. To listen to the full discussion, follow along here. At Alice Lane, we are asked to design people’s homes and interpret their taste through our lens. Here are some of our favorite statement makers for making a tasteful impact in your home.
One of our favorite places to start is with a rug. Rugs are like artwork for your floor and are the foundation of your space. Make sure to get a rug big enough that the front legs of all your seating pieces are sitting on top of it. We released two brand new additions, the Imogen and Daphne Rugs and couldn’t be more excited. They feature the ‘it’ colors of the year set on a traditional pattern. The beautiful blend of old and new create a timeless addition, perfect for living rooms and large spaces. Another of our favorites is our completely customizable Chess Rug. This piece can be created in hundreds of different colors and in any size, making it perfect for those hard to cover spaces in your home. To create your very own, fill out the form here.
Another striking new addition to our J. Bennett Collection, the Blair Cocktail Table is a sculptural addition. We love the curved corners, spacious white oak top, and creamy legs. A shallow cut-in provides a floating look, for a piece that makes a statement at all angles.
The ultimate statement chair, our Felix boasts an incredibly soft terra mohair upholstery complemented by a white and gold frame. One of our favorite features is its tall, regal back and armless design. It easily styles by a fireplace, in an entry, as an accent chair, or paired as a set of two around a side table.
Incredibly versatile with its look of simple elegance, we love our Kit Bed. Its textured boucle fabric, four wood feet, and fully upholstered form with a running definition line make it easy to style in any bedroom. Create a fresh, clean look with white bedding, pillows, and a natural blanket or add drama with a fur throw and patterned throw pillows. We love that it is the perfect piece, lending a high-end look while pairing incredibly well with a variety of bedding.
