Home Sweet Home…

Meg Mateo Ilasco’s home is full of personality, style and beautiful color.  I love how she mixes vintage , modern and a bit of quirkiness.  Perfection! via Sunset Magazine.

DIY Art…

This is such a cute DIY!

Look Up!

While in DC this last week, I couldn’t help but notice how many ceilings are painted in such detailed designs.  The ceilings in National buildings are as important as the walls and floors.  Thousands of hours must have been spent creating these beautiful murals.  Beautiful ceilings for a modern day home would include wood beams, [...]

Excitement…

What a fantastic week its been around the web.  Magazines were launched, ideas were birthed and designs have been revealed.  One magazine that I am pretty excited about is the second issue of Pure Green Living.  The theme throughout the pages is recycled and reclaimed.  Celine MacKay, Editor of Pure Green Living, knows the importance [...]

My fair princess 2…

Last year I dedicated this room to my Eden Jo.  Not much has changed since then.  She still loves, pink, sparkles, glitter and princesses.  But don’t let this ultra feminine girl fool you.  She needs little super hero and robot moments here and there.  She loves dirt, cows, and can take down her older brother [...]
