Home Tour: Carole Radziwill’s SoHo Apartment

29 Jul

Good morning! As I have admitted before I am a big Housewives fan. Well anything on Bravo really, but I particularly love my housewives. If any of you watch the New York Housewives you may have seen Carole Radziwill’s beautiful SoHo apartment renovation. She worked with designer Wayman Robertson on this project. The apartment is the perfect representation of Carole’s sassy, strong, and stylish personality. The one piece of furniture that stands out in this space is her sofa she was lucky enough to inherit from her mother-in-law Lee Radziwill that is covered in a tiger velvet.

Chic Home Offices

24 Jul

Since I primarily work from home having a workspace is very important. I don’t have much space, but I make the most of it. Whether you have the luxury of having an entire room devoted to being an office or a small corner having a spot that inspires you to get your job done is super important. Adding stylish organization, color, inspiration boards, etc. are all elements that can make the perfect home office space.

Update: 101 in 1001

23 Jul

You may remember I made a 101 in 1001 list back in January. I have marked off some things on my list so I thought I would give you an update. This has been a lot of fun to keep track of. I love a good challenge so I definitely want to mark off everything on my list by the end of the 1001 days.

5. Invest in new furniture pieces

For my birthday last month the only thing I could think of wanting was a new dresser. My husband thought it was a pretty boring gift, but I was excited! I swapped out the standard Ikea hardware for brass and acrylic knobs from Home Depot.

11. Go to a concert.

Last week I went to see Colbie Caillat perform at a local winery. It was such a beautiful setting for live music. The picture is a little blurry, but you get the idea..

33. Make my husband breakfast in bed.

This rarely happens. We had some fresh blackberries so I made compote and poured it over fresh waffles. YUM!

53. Go on a hike with my husband.

Unfortunately, we don’t make time for this more often. We are lucky enough to live a few miles from a great park that has wonderful hiking trails. The views are so pretty!

60. Take a roadtrip

In January my husband and I took a roadtrip up to Napa. We love to visit different wineries and try delicious foods. We are taking a longer roadtrip next month from LA to Monterrey.

62. Visit Disneyland

In April I visited Disneyland with a few of my best girlfriends. I have a soft spot for Disneyland. I wish I could go more often!

98. Cut my hair more than 3 inches

This I had been debating for a while. I had been growing out my hair for almost 3 years. I loved having long hair, but I am known for getting bored with my hair so I really wanted to change it up. I chopped off about 7 inches (maybe more). It has already grown a few inches since March. I need to think of something new to change it up.

I have marked off some other items on my list to see all my progress check out the full list. Do you think you would ever do a list like this?

Brass Accents

22 Jul

Good morning! I love brass accents. I think they can really dress up a space and add something special. To me there is nothing better than a well designed space with pretty brass accents. Brass fixtures and accents are definitely not going anywhere. They are here to stay so check out some of my favorites.

Home Tour: Cottage Retreat

17 Jul

Today I have a beautiful coastal inspired cottage to show you. The pale color palette used throughout is anything but boring. The use of mainly white with pale blue accents is really pretty. This cottage feels homey and inviting. Take a look.
