Runway to Home


Dad gifts

Fathers day is this weekend. Throw out the old list of ties, wallets and a grill for the more modern man of today. Here are a few ideas for the dad in your life.
For the man in style, skip the tie and grab the male version of heels. The bow tie. There are so many fun patterns that can express a mans style. Cool shades are never frowned upon. Pick up one that is a little different than his average pair for extra excitement. Trade the shearling slippers for a more dapper pair perfect for the warmer months.
For the sporty fellow, there is nothing he loves more than a good workout. Get him a new gym bag, the always favorited Nike Fuel Band, and even a cool sports bottle. Trust me, they will get excited over new gear, ready to hit the gym in style.
For the male chef, a funny apron always makes them smile. A new knife set and block will definitely get his foodie juices flowing. And the cast iron skillet is a must in every chef's kitchen.
For the avid photographer, the number one thing on my list is the Humans Of New York book. With endless inspiration and gorgeous photographs, this is one he will love. How cute is this lens mug?! It looks super real and he wont leave the house without it. Iphone covers are endless so its super easy to find one that looks like a camera, but this one looks like a vintage one with an instagram filter on it. Perfect.
For the music lover, nothing is more on point than this iphone dock turn table. It mixes the modern with the uber cool vintage vibe. Beats headphones are always a winner and this book of must hear music will have him tucked away in its pages for hours.

Happy Fathers Day!

           5 Easy Ways To Update

summer makeover

It's time to put away those fur throws, and velvet drapes. Here are 5 simple and affordable ways to update your space!

  1. Drapes. This is the fastest and strongest way to add color to a room. Choosing a sheer fabric instead of a heavy one will really give a fresh summery feel. Urban Outfitters has countless beautiful designs and they are pretty darn cheap! It was so hard to choose one to feature, so go check them all out!

  2. Pillows. Sure you can buy new pillows. But why not save a few extra bucks and buy pillow covers. Just cover your old pillows for an instant makeover. H&M's home collection is so fun and so cheap! These pillows add a splash of color and the bronze one reminds me of glimmering pool skin. 

  3. Wall Art. Another quick way to get into the new season is with art. Pick up bright and cheerful pieces. They don't even have to match your space! Just having bright colors makes any room look relative to the season. 

  4. Lighting. Although you may need to use them less this season, having cool lamps in unusual colors and styles makes you look like a decor pro. This cool plastic lamp from Lamps Plus is so bright, you don't even need to turn it on! 

  5. A quick fix to your winter blues is drawer knobs. Anthropologie is known for their beautiful and really great priced knobs. It's like jewelry for your furniture. You can even mix and match for a custom look.

    Mothers day gifts

    Mothers day gifts by itsthestylista featuring a tea pot

    It's almost mothers day! Did you buy her a gift? No worries, I have you covered. Buying gifts for mom can be a little hard. It's almost like buying gifts for men! You have the prevalent list of perfume, jewelry or something for the kitchen. I've come up with a revised list of your average mothers day gifts.
    Lets start with the most common gift for moms: jewelry. Why not buy her a pearl necklace? Old fashioned you say? Think again. This one's a modern take on pearls, a statement she will be happy to make.
    Forget the old serving platter or coffee maker! Those are like giving your mechanic a wrench for his birthday! How about a gorgeous tea pot that's more like art? When it comes to scents, Jo Malone takes the cake on indulging luxury. His epic candles and fragrances are not only beautifully packaged but smell amazing. Another item usually reserved for the old fashioned: scarves. Ted Bakers incredible quirky and floral prints from the 2014 collection grace these scarves that anyone would love to receive.
    Coffee table books are a great gift to consider. This set of 5 books on top fashion houses will be a conversation piece every time she has guests. For the traveling mom, this Kate Spade travel bag and uber girly passport holder will have her jet setting in style. And if you want to receive the 'Daughter of the Year' award wrap them up with two tickets to Paris!
