Z Gallerie has now opened in Milwaukee…

My city is on a come up with the new home decor and furniture stores that opened in the last year and a half. The newest is Z Gallerie at Mayfair Mall. I recently took a visit and purchased a few items and books. As always,  it’s nice to not have to drive to Chicago or other…

Can we give a round of applause for this home?

This is very similar to my bedroom inspiration. A bedroom that has so many textures and creates a moody, modern, relaxing atmosphere with some glam and edge. 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…

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…

Luxurious and grand…

Hello! I am doing a voice text blog post since I am still recovering from Wednesday’s hand surgery. I am supposed to keep my hand elevated so it’s a good thing I always have my phone in my hand. I came across this living room on Pinterest and it linked back to a page that…

Grassy party backdrops…

A design trend I’ve noticed this year is greenery as a backdrop for photobooths or dessert tables. I love this classy elegant look to an outdoor summer wedding or party… Having a lit marquee sign or uplights will be perfect for an evening affair… This is one of my all time favorite reception lounge designs….

Random retail therapy finds and decor indulgences…

I started this post days ago but of course wordpress was trippin’ and it didn’t save. Anyhoo, these gorgeous floor vases were at Pier 1 and would look nice in several areas of my home. This lamp would be a side table’s piece of jewelry. You can’t tell but the inside of the lamp was…

Love it when I come across something different in design…

Too much white white white in rooms for my taste. I love a bold color scheme or at least a bold lively area of a home. This above I love! This vignette is so inspiring. It makes me want to take a wall with the shortest width and paint something like this or at least…

Indulge Daily: Tv chic….

Love a dresser in the living room as a tv stand. I even blogged about it here before. This is edgy and chic with marble and mirrored finishes. I like the symmetry of the lamps anchoring the tv. {NZ House and Garden of Colin Radcliffe’s home via Sukio}

Cubed mirrored tables…

I love mirrored furniture because of the glam factor. However mirrored pieces also reflect light (depending on how close the lighting source is to the piece) and multiplies the illusion of size.  I like the nesting table craze and using smaller tables in replace of a larger coffee table. So cubed mirrored ones are right…

What a pretty calming space…

Nothing is more special than having an appointment somewhere for the first time, walking in and having a beautifully designed interior greet you. See more from the Lash Maxx here. {Melanie Johnson Photography for Studio Ten 25}
