Bright Colors in Country Living!

This has to be one of my favorite magazines right now. I was a big fan 10-15 years ago but I found the decor highlighted back then was a tad frumpy and I was a newlywed looking for youthful and fresh ideas. So I stopped reading it for a while.  I recently discovered that something has definitely changed and the home tours they are choosing now fit the 30-40 year old generation like me so beautifully! Check out this home featured this month! I love the pops of color used with warmer brown tones. It is making me rethink some things????

Exciting News to Share with You!

A couple of months ago, I was contacted by a writer from the The Bump magazine. You are probably thinking what I was at the time "I never heard of this magazine??" Well, The Knot, The Nest and The Bump are three magazines from the same parent company and you probably guessed The Bump magazine is a magazine devoted to pregnancy and parenthood. I was asked to give some design advice on decorating nurseries and this month's issue features one of my tips!!! The was really exciting for someone like me who has just started in the design business. You can pick up a hard copy of the magazine in local obstetrical office that carries it. So, that is what I wanted to share with you and I also wanted to say have a beautiful fall weekend and go out and enjoy the outdoors, the colors quickly fade.....

Abstract Art!

I have been trying to finish up our living room for now and artwork is a must! I have been drawn to abstract art lately and I am thinking of incorporating it into a gallery wall like these below...
