This here is probably my fav 6 week challenge reveal of all time…

I mean…listen…this is so incredibly stunning. My fav takeaways: all of it the black walls and molding which gives an element of history and character, the faux white fireplace mantle with ornate details and the warmth by tall candles, the canopy bed without the drapery, the mantle layering, the luxe bedding and the window treatments…

I can’t take my eyes off of this room….

I made this my computer background. How gorgeous. The candles and sconces and uplights cast the most perfect glow for this party. I love how the pearls are draped. So simple but luxe.

Wall Art Inspirations and the Do’s and Don’ts…

I live in an apartment that doesn’t allow painting (dreadful) and coming from an apartment that DID allow it, it’s rather depressing.
