One of my all-time favorite places to visit in the world is Paris. There’s really no place like it, especially when it comes to Paris’ ornately detailed architecture and interiors.  Many of what I’d consider to be the most stunning examples of picturesque Parisian architecture are apartments with original hardwood floors, quaint windows with a tiny balcony, and a view of the most romantic … { Continue Reading }

I know that I’m probably the last one on the planet to be watching Mad Men, but I’ve currently been binge watching the television series and I’ve got to admit that I’m hooked!  Blame it on my love of mid-century modern style or my marketing and advertising background from college but I can’t get enough of the show or its tastefully designed sets.  For those of you who haven’t seen Mad Men, … { Continue Reading }

One of my favorite looks for vacation homes would have to be nature-inspired contemporary, meaning lots of hardwoods, green plants, and natural sunlight.  When I spent time in the mountains of North Carolina, the cabin had this really amazing vibe and everything was all wood, including the bathrooms.  I know that some people are wary of having hardwood floors or walls … { Continue Reading }

I’ll forever let it be known that I absolutely am in love with vintage and thrift shops of all kinds.  I started collecting amber glass pieces for my dining table almost 6 months ago and I have a lot of fun visiting different places to add to my growing assortment.  Half of the fun shopping for the perfect vintage piece is the hunt, oftentimes digging past junk to find a diamond in the rough. … { Continue Reading }

Two design trends that have trickled their way down to the DIY blogs and Pinterest boards are color block patterns with shiny gold accents.  I’ve personally been inspired by a few of these easy to recreate home décor projects, such as wall décor, geometric nursery mobiles, and even stenciled patterns for walls and floors.  However, I’m noticing that many of these DIY blogs are incorporating … { Continue Reading }

Pocket Door Perfection

Pocket doors are an excellent way to separate rooms and large spaces into more intimate, smaller areas.  The convenience factor plus the ability to seamlessly integrate or separate a space is genius.  For instance, some of my favorite uses of pocket doors are for dining rooms, offices and living rooms.  They’re also great if someone needs more peace and quiet, and another person in the house … { Continue Reading }
