Live with Lisa | Feather & Twine

CBH Designer’s Here! This week we wanted to highlight a local store in Boise that sells the most gorgeous home decor. The store is Feather & Twine, located on State St. The shop is owned by a local interior designer, Judith Balis.

Feather & Twine is filled with so many gorgeous & ornate pieces. The store owner, Judith was there greeting everyone as they came in to the shop. We arrived right at opening! The store smelled so delicious and the decor was displayed so beautifully throughout. Vintage rugs, throw pillows, lots of greenery options, gorgeous planters, pots, and bowls in all sizes and so many different styles – these are just a few of the wonderful items you will find in the store. There were also some larger pieces as well – sofas, chairs, console tables, and end tables. This is the perfect spot to pick up beautiful one of a kind pieces for your CBH Home or to grab a gift for someone you love!

Feather & Twine had so many special items that are unique to this store. We highly recommend stopping in. Be sure to smell the McCall and Sun Valley candles they have burning…. Amazing!! The shop is open for a few days a month, so be sure to check their instagram for dates and times – @featherandtwinehome.

We love finding beautiful home decor spots in the Treasure Valley. Thanks for bringing your beautiful design & style to Boise, Judith!

Have a great weekend!


The CBH Designers.


P.S. We also spotted a few other stores just down the way from Feather & Twine….A Succulent Day (plants, pots and decor), Lit & Co (Candles) and a new flower shop opening this weekend, Wildflower (flowers, pots, jewelry, clothing and coffee bar). You seriously need to check ALL of these out!

CBH Designers | Decorating Your Living Room

The living room is often the heart of the home and we LOVE a beautifully decorated and functional space. We want a space that is inviting, comfortable, and a place to recharge and relax with loved ones. We wanted to share some living room inspiration for our different interior color packages.

Below are rustic & warm interiors as well as soft and light design ideas. Everyone needs something different for their home, family, and style. That is what we love about design – the possibilities are endless. Check out these spaces for a little bit of inspiration. Cheers! 




The natural wood table and rustic lockers are such beautiful statement pieces in these living rooms. With pops of greenery and succulents to bring a modern feel and splash of color to the design. We love the rustic and earthy feel in the spaces below.

The living room above is so warm and inviting. We love the traditional and elegant design of this home. The furniture selection makes the room feel cozy and provides a good amount of seating. We love the rustic coffee table and the candles for a beautiful ambiance. How cute are all the blankets placed around the room as well. We would love to curl up in this space!

This room gives us true rustic farmhouse feels. The farmhouse elements are lovely. The whitewashed coffee table, vintage scale, and plaid pillows all work together to enhance that farmhouse feel. The natural wood beam across the ceiling look so beautiful and ties into the design seamlessly.


The natural light in this living room is stunning. It is such a bright space and we  love the how the trees can be enjoyed both outside and inside. We absolutely love the use of a fiddle tree, olive, or lemon tree in a living room. This is such a neat round carved coffee table that adds texture to the room. The small striped ottomans add a fun texture as well. Just beautiful!



We love pulling vintage or sentimental items into a design. What a fun way to incorporate a meaningful trunk into your living space to be seen and enjoyed every day. This would be a great conversation piece too! We love the simple decor they used on top of the trunk as well.The dark ceramic vase adds dimension to the room. So lovely.


This living room has such a fun and modern feel. The dark gray couches are such a classy pop of color and really warm the space. We love how they pulled in accents of blue, gold, and gray throughout the entire room. What a fun seating arrangement as well. The two large couches facing each other is great for conversation and hosting gatherings.


This modern industrial living room below is just dreamy. The balance of light and dark elements works so well in this space. We really enjoy the concrete coffee table for a focal point in the room. The use of the black pendant lights and lamp also adds to the modern design of the room..


This living room screams shabby chic. It has a lot of rustic elements that provide a very natural and earthy look. The whitewashed hutch and console table are beautifully distressed. We always love to accent with fresh flowers and the hydrangeas look gorgeous in this design.



This space feels refined and elegant. We love the different elements of nature throughout the space. The throw pillows and natural woven rug bring in texture to the design. This style of rug was in several other living room designs as well. It’s a great classic rug to warm up a room.

This living room above is simply designed but so inviting. We love the simple grouping of vases on the coffee table and the three mirrors hanging on the wall. The natural woven rug is shown in this design again and is even incorporated as a window treatment as well. So fun!

What a cozy space! There are so many fun decor items in this living room. We love the hanging baskets on the wall and the ladder in the corner. What a great way to hang blankets. The fun poof is great to use as an ottoman or for additional seating.

Thanks for checking out our design inspiration for our 2019 Interior Collection! We hope you’re loving it as much as we are!

Live with Lisa | 3 Ways to Decorate your Coffee Table

Are you in the process of decorating your new CBH Home? We know how it feels to be completely stumped on how to start fresh and style your home! Thank goodness our designers know all the techniques and are here to help you out! This episode of Live with Lisa will teach you 3 Ways to Decorate your Coffee Table.

Watch the newest Live with Lisa video below to learn how you can decorate your coffee table with either a modern, beachy, OR rustic theme. She’s thinking of all of you and your different styles out there!

P.S… You’ll want to keep reading, we’re giving this coffee table away!!! 

Time to go shopping, (just around your house!) See below for the three themes broken down for you:

Rustic theme: 

Lisa starts with a FUN white fur from Target. She then adds a cute rustic basket, some black books and something quirky, (Lisa used a wooden spoon and put a penny in it! Watch the video to see why she does this ;)) Next, Lisa added some beach wood and candles, (always a good idea..  helloooo yummy smells). Don’t forget to add some height! In this case – a rustic wicker vase and some branches/ flowers of your choosing. Then add some more personal touches, Lisa added THESE ceramic homes from target. Top it off with some coasters and you’re complete!

Beach Theme:

Lisa kept the same white fur and added a fun beachy vase & the same twigs from before! Don’t forget – you can use and re-use and don’t have to buy anything new unless you want to! Next, bring some greenery to the table and add tons of driftwood, (Necessary for the beach theme). Change up your tray (in this case she used a gold tray) Add some books, tan and blue – so beachy. Next, add a few beach rocks from a vacation, (or Hobby Lobby) and top it all off with the same or a different yummy candle.

Modern theme:

Lisa likes to use white, gold, and black and straight lines for a modern theme. She started it off with a clean white tray. Next, add some books! Lisa used the same black books from the rustic theme coffee table. She then adds a fun, gold candle and some white flowers! Next, Lisa brought in a GOLD tray and placed some classy white marble coasters inside. Add a succulent of your choosing and of course….another book! Don’t forget to  add a fun conversation starter, in Lisa’s case it was a hour glass with black sand!

Here are a few key takeaways: 

  • Books are ALWAYS a good idea
  • Add something fun and quirky
  • You don’t always have to buy something new, grab things from around your home
  • make sure you add some height to your table
  • Cute coasters finish the look
  • Greenery is the bees knees and ups your air quality!

Did you watch until the end? If so… you probably saw that we’re giving away the coffee table from this episode of Live with Lisa!

All you have to do is fill out the google form HERE to enter to win!!! We like to keep it simple!
