How to Define your Design Style

Tell me if this sounds familiar: You just moved in or are looking for a new home, you started shopping around online, you made Pinterest & Houzz inspiration boards, you bookmarked all your favorite items, you watched reruns of HGTV shows, you took notes from a YouTube video on how to DIY everything, and you have been stock piling coupons for Bed Bath and Beyond like nobody’s business.

You did the research and you gathered inspiration but ….

…Where on earth do you start??

How to Create Beach Chic Interiors

Hello All!

Since the summer is here, I’ve been traveling down the shore during any sunny weekend I can grasp. My beach trips and stays have inspired this blog post.

Coastal interiors can be adorable, and I mean A-DOR-ABLE! I love beach homes and interiors but sometimes it can be a little too cliche. I like to indulge in the details, but not over-indulge. Let’s not go overboard! (ha – Shore puns! Yes, I laugh at my own jokes).

3 Tips to Create a Fab Foyer

The entry of your home is the first thing your guest see when you invite them into your home. As the saying goes, “First impressions are formed within 7 seconds.” Create a lasting impression in your foyer that expresses your personality in a nut-shell. Show off your individuality but don’t show all the goods … shhh, save that for the rooms.

My dream foyer would be packed with bold style, sexiness, gold accessories, lucite, a statement chandelier, and Mongolian fur ottomans. At least, that’s what I am dreaming of right now – it changes.

The Copper Comeback and Why I am Excited about it

Warm Copper hues are making a hot comeback and I don’t mind at all! I am usually weary when styles come back. For example, do you remember when bell bottoms jeans came back? I hopped on the bell-bottom bandwagon so fast. My wardrobe couldn’t live without them (now it can). Being short, that style was not flattering on me. I looked shorter, wider, and they dragged on the ground – not cute.

So anyway, back to Copper. Why am I loving warm metals right now? Because it is freezing on the East Coast!! The weather outside is still frightful. By adding copper and bronze hues into your home, it creates a warm and cozy environment. Two things I am craving during the frigid weather. Continue reading

Dollar Store DIY: Gold Dipped Glass Holders

Hello beautiful friends!

I am a little delayed on the my usual blog schedule because my first attempt failed.  I sprayed my glass holders and then added a clear acrylic coating to protect the paint from chipping. I guess my paint wasn’t completely dry and the clear coat actually removed all of the metallic paint. So I had to recreate my project and fell short from my posting deadline. Sorry, folks!

If you haven’t noticed, I love to DIY and I love gold. I actually love metallic paint so much that I purchased all the metallic paint from the hardware store. They know me by name. They also love all my crazy ideas – like my spray painted heels but that’s another DIY project 😉 Continue reading
