Rue Magazine’s 3rd annual small space issue came out yesterday. In this issue, I was especially fond of photographer Emily Johnston’s space and artist Caroline Z Hurley’s apartment. They both show us how it can be an easy task to transform a small space into a stylish getaway. Of course there are other amazing homes and features in this issue so you must check it out!

I am smitten with this house tour from Melbourne Australia. They have done a great job mixing light and dark. Sometimes a space can come across too white or too dark so a nice combo can be refreshing. Also, the bedroom is my jam.

Hi friends. I’m sure most of you are busy getting ready for the most wonderful time of the year. Christmas is the one holiday that makes my toes tingle with excitement. It brings me back to a time when I was a kid and everything felt extremely giddy and happy. From the stack of presents under the tree, to the colorful Christmas cookies left out for Santa on Christmas eve. Now as an adult, the holidays take on a totally new meaning. It’s all about a tasteful, meaningful Christmas for me and my family. I want to be surrounded by the people that I love most and involve myself in activities and moments that mean the most to me. Basically, I want to be really warm and fuzzy! Something that makes me really warm and fuzzy…..coffee!
Today I get to offer you a chance to win my obsession….a NESPRESSO! This is the best coffee maker on the market, if you ask me. The coffee is amazing, the machine is sleek and modern and the milk frother…oh my heavens….is revolutionary. Today we are giving away the Pixie in Aluminum and the Aerooccino milk frother (a value of $329) to one lucky winner.
Here’s how to win-

Giveaway ends Thursday night at midnight. Winner will be chosen at random on Friday morning, Dec 19th, at 9am eastern.
Live Creating Yourself
I must admit, rugs in the kitchen are just fabulous. Once you get over the reality that we are all messy humans and we WILL spill, a rug in the kitchen gives the space a “lived in” feel, warmth, color, and depth. I like to scotch guard my rugs or even have them professionally treated for extra protection. Scroll if you need any more convincing that this is the best idea ever…
A Perfect Gray
Carpet of Life
Take a look at this home from Skona Hem. Taking a space with bones full of character and adding modern furniture and pieces often become my favorite designs. This space has so many color contrasts combined with a truly “lived in” look; I fall in love with the details every time I see these images…
More details on this home here.
1. Nothing better than a kitchen before & after. It IS possible to achieve the design of your dreams! Thanks Remodelista for the inspiration.
2. Perfectly designed space via Plaza Interiors. Combining office and dining is a great way to have the best of both when you don’t have an area specifically for a desk.
3. A great space including an end-of-the-week retreat crawlspace for your kids to go play via Pinterest!!
