    Happy new year all! So what will the first post of 2015 be about? My kitchen makeover that started in Feb 2014. It’s a little embarrassing that it’s been almost a year and it’s still not done.

    SPACES: kitchen makeover update, the lights

    It’s happening people, little by little. Today I’m happy to share another kitchen update with you. Today’s before & after is all about lighting. It’s truly amazing how much a light fixture can change the look of a room. It’s like a pretty necklace – it adds so much to an outfit or a room. […]

  • SPACES: decorating with nature murals

    Happy Friday and Happy Halloween! While you’re reading this post I’m frantically trying to get myself ready for a fun halloween dance bash I’m going to tonight.

  • SPACES: living room or bedroom for under $1000

    Hey all. I thought I would share some of these latest posts I put together for Apartment Therapy. Give me a tight budget and I thrive.

  • SPACES: designing around a rug

    Do people still install carpet these days? Me, I would choose modern rugs over a carpet any day. Cheaper (most of the time), no installation needed, easy to change, easy to move and mostly no dust bunnies and mystery stains that can’t be seen. Not that looking under a rug is always pleasant but at […]

    Have you spotted the woven wall art trend yet? Wall hangings in general are really popular right now, from macrame to textiles etc. I love them all but I’m especially in love with the woven pieces. It’s a modern throwback to the 70’s. It’s so funny because I can totally remember seeing similar pieces hanging […]
