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…

3 more home designs from Greg Natale…

What stuck out to me about this house is the lines. The lines of the furniture, the lines in the geometric patterns, the lines in the wallpaper. There are tons of shapes to keep your eyes moving and it’s definitely a conversation starter. The coffee table’s gunmetal colored tubed base echos in the wallpaper in…

Design Takeaways: Go Bold or Go Home…

I admire designers who can convince a homeowner to go bold with walls and ceilings. A lot of people shy away from it because of the labor and time it takes to change it all back if the look isn’t what they wanted. I understand that but wow…what a statement if you take the risk. …

Using adult headboards and lighting will make it easier to transition as she grows older. It’ll also prove cheaper for the…

Monday Morning Inspiration 3.31.14

You know how that voice in your head sometimes makes you feel inadequate? It may tell you you’re not good enough, smart enough, cannot and will not get that done. “That” thing you want to get done may be a short term, long term or life changing goal or accomplishment. Sometimes it’s not the people…

Tiny Tot Thursday 3.27.14 a space a child can grow in

This playroom designed by Nina Farmer is ideal because the bones of the room can easily transition for a more grown up feel when the child becomes a teen or college student. Books can eventually replace toys in the built-ins. {Keep indulging….follow me on instagram, twitter, & pinterest}

Chocolate and pink hued offices of Benefit…

I saw this pink and chocolate office space of Benefit and knew this is a fun place to work. They have weekly ice cream socials, themed mixers & champagne toast lunches… I would actually eat my lunch in the lunchroom if it looked this fun… Drinking on the job and working in a space with…
