ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 3.27

lauren liess library room

This week’s room is serving as major inspiration for my own home right now… It’s a practical, yet stylish room, and it’s (almost) exactly what I want to do to our little ‘breakfast nook’ area that is currently serving as a playroom just off the kitchen. While the layout will have to be adjusted, the concept remains the […]

    Lauren has a great eye and I have admired this room since it first appeared in the magazine. Have you see her master bedroom! Worth a look.

ROUNDUP :: THE SUMMER PONCHO

It may seem a bit ridiculous to some to be planning my summer wardrobe already, but lately I’ve been on a major wardrobe overhaul. Tweaking and refining my style to suit life as it is now… not life as it was 4 years ago. My only problem is that I live in a city that’s […]

IN THE DETAILS :: 10 WAYS TO ADD UNEXPECTED COLOR

10-ways-to-add-unexpected-color-to-your-home-via-coco-kelley

It’s funny how many people will claim they love color, and want to use more of it in their home, but then when faced with the reality of bold blue walls or citron sofas, they back away because – let’s be honest – color like that is quite the commitment. So for you wanna-be embracers of bold, here […]

    I just love these ideas! The door and windowframe are on my top-list. I’ll keep them in mind as soon as I move into my new home!

    Have a lovely day!

    Wow..some really different ideas. Love the painted interior door idea as well as the mini wall. I am looking with a more critical eye at my house to find a spot to incorporate some of these.

    I definitely don’t shy away when it comes to color. I love adding bright and bold furniture and decor to my home. I am totally loving the idea of painting furniture trims and windows bold colors too. Got to give that one a shot.

    Great examples. Using a neon accent color looks amazing in an otherwise neutral room. I especially love the orange accent on the bench and the brightly painted mini wall. I’ve been searching for mini walls to paint here too.

It’s officially the first day of SPRING!! And I will probably be spending it inside all day watching basketball because this might just be my most favorite time of year. And if yesterday was any indication, this tourney is gonna be a crazy one! But on to other things. Like brightly colored homes, DIY’s and […]

DOUBLE DARING :: ROSIE + ROXANNE ASSOULINE

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

I always look forward to seeing my friend Nicole Cohen’s images from the Rosie Assouline show during NYFW. She gets the behind the scenes, as well as the presentation, but this year there was something more that caught my eye than the usual dramatic pieces put forth by the talented designer… The statement-making single flower earrings created […]

    I absolutely loved this collection, including the statement earrings which are such a part of my own fashion statement. The draping on these clothes was just gorgeous and I am jealous of your friend for being in such close proximity to them. I really enjoyed these photos and got to re-expeience the joy I felt the first time I saw these clothes again.
