Styling plates with a little glam…

Over the weekend I styled some pretty plates I selected from Plate Shoppe. They are my new blog sponsor and I spoke about them recently. I was in need of new plates especially because I am kind of clumsy and tend to break a lot of dishes, which ends up leaving with me mismatched items. It’s great that…

Velvet, Moroccan wedding blankets, a plush rug, mirrored and chrome details are all elements I have and want for my bedroom retreat. It’s monochromatic but isn’t boring because…

The Balmain & H&M collab can inspire decor too…

I am HERE for the new upcoming collaboration with H&M (my fav mall store) & Balmain. There are so much detailing and textures through out the line. When I looked at one of the dresses, I immediately thought about how the material would make great toss pillows. You know us designers always find sources of…
