Displaying Bracelets and Watches…

I instagrammed earlier this week an idea I thought of for storing bracelets and watches. If you are like me and you love beakers and Erlenmeyer flasks, instead of using them as vases use the top to stack your bracelets. It’s a clean solution and looks great displayed on dressers and shelves. Do you have any [...]

I’ve had a lot of clients request more and more DIY’s in their homes. Of course it brings down costs dramatically. It also brings uniqueness and character. I always suggest pairing a DIY with a modern piece just to neglect looking too crafty. Above is a DIY headboard slipcover. The color is right on point [...]

Inspiration {Patterned Tile}…

Image: Apartment Therapy If you’ve been on Pinterest lately, you’ll notice that patterned tile is all of the rage, especially in bathrooms.

National Painting Week Project…

I’ve come to realize something in life. Color creates moods, and very specific moods. If you know my style, I do not shy away from color. Saying that, I am very specific and picky with color because of the moods and vibes they give off. For instance, you say green and I say, what shade [...]
