So when HomeGoods offered me a complimentary shopping trip, I couldn’t have said “yes” faster. What’s more, they gave me access to interior designer Beth Diana Smith, who shares my eclectic aesthetic and offered pointers to enhance my shopping experience. (Check out Beth’s recent HomeGoods haul for her New Jersey home — it doesn’t disappoint.)

The actress first arrived on the scene through roles in Layer Cake and Alfie, and ever since then has proven that she is hugely talented. Did you see Factory Girl? The Edge Of Love? American Woman?

Design for Yourself – The Good Men Project

Laveta Brigham

In the twenty-six years that I owned a home, messages bombarded me about how I should decorate, live, and own my home. “Build for yourself and your lifestyle!” If you can’t build a house: “Reno your kitchen and bathroom(s) and basement!”

In the 00s, HGTV praised granite countertops, floating islands, shiplap, and farm sinks.

In the 90s, it was wood floors, oak cabinets, large tubs, ivy wallpaper, and wallpaper borders.

In the 80s, decorative flowers everywhere required enormous pieces of furniture coupled with dark trim and formal dining rooms.

Every year, marketers couple decorating with living space design.

Jose Villa; Easton Events

Deciding on décor for a winter wedding can be a challenge; after all, the colder months are wedding’s off-season, and a time of year that lends itself to potentially kitschy or overly literal themes (cue the mistletoe and snowflakes). To boot, the best blooms—like peonies, dahlias, hydrangeas, and more—are nowhere to be found. And if that weren’t enough, floral varieties are imported from abroad and inclement weather affects incoming shipments, abundance, and quality. The current coronavirus pandemic has affected floral markets worldwide, and colder weather means even smaller guest counts and safety precautions to account for
