All White Everything

29 Aug

Happy Friday! Lately I have been crushing on all white spaces. Layering textures can make the space anything but boring. White is a great blank canvas for great design. There is something so fresh about an all white space. Take a look at these white hot spaces.

Not Just for Kids

28 Aug

Good morning! Lately I’ve noticed a few stores focused on children’s furniture have really stepped up their game and created some really great pieces that can be translated into adult spaces. Pottery Barn Teen and The Land of Nod have some really wonderful accents that would fit into adult sophisticated spaces. I have pulled together my favorites.

Pretty great right? So, don’t rule out stores aimed towards kids. You never know what great accents you may find!

I’m BACK!

27 Aug

I am back! Finally! My husband and I went on vacation and I have been caught up with busy life stuff. So I am finally back. Today I am sharing some pictures of our road trip along the coast. I have never driven along Highway 1 up the coast before and it is SO beautiful. We drove up from LA to Santa Barbara. Then we headed to Hearst  Castle (which was gorgeous!) Finally we made our way up to Monterrey.

We felt no trip to Monterrey was complete without visiting the Jellyfish at the aquarium.

Get the Look for Less

5 Aug

Good morning! I love a good deal. Who doesn’t? I love finding furniture and decor pieces that look expensive, but have a great price tag. There are so many similar items out there so it is fun to find inexpensive pieces that look like the pricier piece. I have pulled together 5 examples for you.
