If I could create an outdoor oasis next year…

I know that I would want furniture that could withstand the elements and the test of time. When purchasing outdoor furniture and pieces for your home that will last years and even decades, you want to invest in pieces where the craftsmanship is on point, and the outdoor furniture is fully weatherproof. Your selections need…

Some lovely outdoor spaces…

Lately in Milwaukee it has been very humid and hot. The last several nights have been 80 degrees which I love. I’m still saving to purchase my home in a few months so I put off jazzing up my patio space. Last night when I sat on the front porch and enjoyed the breeze, my…

Motivation Monday 6.6.16

There is something so happy about flowers in the home. Whether you opt to grab real ones from flower markets or your local grocery store or prefer some faux arrangements, flowers can make a space feel happy. Here are my flowers I purchased from AtHome. It’s actually two different bouquets but I wanted both colors…

Greg Natale Designs…dark masculine 3 level home…

Built in conjunction with Greg Natale Design and Hully Liveris, this home is everything!  There’s geometric patterns and herringbone designs through out the three levels but it all works. The key is using the same color palette when using multiple patterns. Art just pops when placed on dark walls. I saved many rooms of this…

You can really create different moods with lighting. Delightfull has such interesting designs and the one below is my favorite. It looks…

Kourtney & Khloe Kardashian’s homes in Architectural Digest…

I always say Khloe is my favorite and her new home shows some of the reasons why. I’ve blogged about her gym closet recently here. However this new home of hers has some rooms I don’t ever get a glimpse of on KUWTK. I love Moroccan architecture with the ornate details and arches galore and…

Retail Therapy: AtHome Milwaukee is now open!

So this week AtHome opened here in Milwaukee (Wauwatosa’s old Kmart on Hwy 100) and I am in love. I have been following them on instagram for sometime so when I drove by and saw we were getting one, I was beyond excited. My coworker stopped there this week and told me she spent 2…

Parade of Homes Tour 2015

Last week I went to one of the subdivisions for the Metropolitan Parade of Homes which is a showcase of furnishings and trends in tile and interior design. These are real homes on the market and the builders really have some cool ideas. I’m finishing two more subdivisions today so there will hopefully be lots…

Time for fall shopping which means Summer Sales…

Ever since moving into my condo I have been paying off debt including one student loan (whooohoooo) first so I can save for the down payment to buy it next year. So things like the rec room and landscaping have been on hold. However, I know the best part of home purchases is buying when…
