It’s often said that life imitates art, and there’s nothing more full of life than exotic animals from around the world.  Everything from crocodiles and pythons to leopards and chinchillas have been replicated and infused into the interior design, home décor, and fashion worlds.  In some extremely sad cases, poachers and hunters have killed these beautiful animals for the sake of selling their skins in order to create these products, but these days more and more people are rallying around anti-cruelty when it comes to exotic species. { Continue Reading }

Vacation is probably one of the only things in life that restores my sanity.  I’m super passionate about traveling, even if it’s just a weekend trip to another city or state.  Currently I’m staying with friends while visiting Hawaii, but also checking out the West Coast when I get back to the “main land”.  Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle are all on my list of stops before returning to … { Continue Reading }

I’ve always been one to have faux flowers around, whether it’s an orchid in the bathroom or a daisy in the kitchen window, I’ve always felt that they’re a low maintenance way to display beautiful arrangements without having to do anything. … { Continue Reading }

As someone who never really experienced a true college dorm or student housing experience while in school, I’ve got to admit that I feel like I probably missed out a bit on some of the “college experience” that so many freshman see during their first semester away from home.  I’d always pretty much assumed that painted over cinder block walls and stackable pine bunk beds and writing desks … { Continue Reading }

“We were looking to open [the home] up more to the wilderness and add a more modern, updated vibe,” homeowner Joel Cantor says. “We wanted something a little different than the typical log cabin look.” After passing though a double-height ground-floor entry, an open stairway leads to the living and dining areas on the second floor to maximize views. In crafting the combined living-dining … { Continue Reading }

Historic English Estate

Historic buildings and old facades fascinate me, especially those with interiors that have just as much charm as their exteriors. These days, people want to own and live in their own little piece of the past, but regal hunting lodges and European summer palaces may be just out of grasp. Those who can afford it hopefully will want to keep most of the original integrity of the place in tact, … { Continue Reading }

As a fan of mid century modern furniture pieces, one of my favorite go-to resources for finding unique, one-of-a-kind additions for the home is Etsy. The no BS approach to buying vintage in anorganized and easy to use online marketplace allows you to find that perfect piece you’ve been missing.  In fact, most of the pieces that I’ve fallen in love with I had no idea that I was missing until I … { Continue Reading }

When I was a little kid, one of my most favorite pastimes was gathering up all of the sheets, blankets and pillows that I could find and creating a fort for my siblings and I to play inside.  I swear that we were not fully satisfied until the linen closet was cleared out, with everything completely unfolded and the dining room chairs pulled away from their assigned position.  I’m sure it was … { Continue Reading }
