Create a room in your brain in 10 seconds flat!

I really enjoy creating rooms in my head. There are endless possibility’s and endless options for furniture, accessories, ect, and sometimes when I am in the mood to redo something its best to just design it in my head or else I would change things in my house ALL OF THE TIME or change my [...]

Ahhh…..Wallpaper…. I quit

Continued……..JK’s Office and Living Room

Next up is JK’s office. She kept the lines simple and clean. She is a bit ocd but it allows her office to always be uncluttered and it always looks like it is straight out of a magazine. My favorite part is the white office chair from Ikea.If you can believe it, it is always [...]

Fabien Barral

You have probably seen his work on design sites or blogs. He works with his wife and I have a feeling [...]
