Sometimes you need a break…

As you can see…all of these images feature art by me. I will share more later on my artwork and update you on my rec room which features a beautiful teal hue by Dutch Boy Paints.  Honestly, all has not been well. Right now…I just need a break. I know my blogging has been a…

My Office deets….

I’ve been looking for ways to incorporate some greenery in certain areas of my home. I kill plants. I’m not good with them and don’t have a green thumb. So for me, selecting faux potted cacti from Commercial Silk was the best option. I can get the look of real plants without the hassle and upkeep. And…

October is here…which means Christmas is in a few weeks..

Is it me or did the summer fly by, September was gone in 2 eye blinks and now it’s October? It’s like the holidays are literally around the corner and Christmas will be here in no time. Here are some snippets of my office. I changed some stuff around and added new decor like this…

Happy 1st Monday of the Year!

My Monday didn’t get off to a great start. However I was determined to not let that ruin my day and I feel great now. Sometimes you just have to change your mindset…. Nothing says motivation like a well designed work space… I like the use of this space. Not sure of the room’s square…

QOTD: what brings you joy on a budget?

A glamorous home full of gorgeous light fixtures…

I saw this home office and immediately added it to my computer’s background. There isn’t much in terms of a lot of decor but the decor present makes a lot of impact. First, my love of black continues with a wall treatment done soley by using painters tape and a combination of flat and semi…

Tour Rachel Zoe’s home and closet…

Her son’s closet is way better than mine… So much light flooding through the kitchen… Love the pyramid of pictures. See more of Rachel Zoe’s home here.

Something about a minimal design…

To me, minimal design is primarily about editing and being able to have the bare basics in a way that doesn’t feel empty or bare like this tablescape with a high & low plant and candles or a desk with just the lamp and a view. {Tablescape image via}

A home and blog with nothing but black and white…

Color schemes. Well for the most part at least. When I first came across Stylizimo Blog, I literally went page by page in the archives. It’s just that good. I like the poster size art which I’m slowly incorporating in my own home. I like them for the large scale and you can find inexpensive…
