A beautiful front porch

May 14, 2013

Yes it is that time of year to dust off the urns, sweep of the dirt and gussy up that front porch again. Weather  you have a short little stoop or a nice covered porch add some big urns with beautiful flowers and a nice welcome mat. This is the place you set the tone for the rest of your home so make it count!

Weekend Thought

May 10, 2013

Have nothing in your house

that you don’t know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.

Love this quote I found as the parting thought at the end of the newest Rue Mag issue

Perfect

May 9, 2013

Perfect: entirely without any flaws, defects, or shortcomings.

This room(s) are totally perfect in my book. The color scheme, the pillows, the backsplash in the kitchen. The little benches under the table behind the chair, the layered rugs and pretty french doors. This room is totally attainable too. I bet you could find every piece in this room online or from a big box store. I know you would not break the bank recreating this room.

 It’s perfect!

What to wear: Take chances

May 8, 2013

Sometimes I feel like I’m stuck in a fashion rut. Do you? Like if I have to wear a cardigan one more time!! But I like the idea of adding a little something to the usual uniform just to funk it up.

A black bra under a white sweater. Yes your are breaking the rules but it looks cool without being over the top sexy.

Love the idea of a colored tights with the same color skirt and no its not black!

Can you make a graphic tee look chic?  Love the idea of pairing this everyday tee with a fun skirt and some sexy boots.

A colorful belt tied in this perfect little knot is lovely
