….a lil’ bit of “pattern mixing!”

“To mix or not to mix”, that is the question.  With the shift to “Maximalism” my eyeballs are getting a work out!   Patterns, colors, and “stuff”…….oh my!  I am a self-professed minimalist and I always will be.  However, I absolutely love, love, love, exquisite textiles.  Bold, bright, embroidered, printed,

…………a lil’ bit of leg

A question I often ponder when dressing for a night on the town is, “Am I showing too much leg?”  (Keep in mind I am tall, leggy and well, a lil’ bit quite clumsy!)  Anyway, when putting your living room furnishings together, the same question can come up.  Is there too much leg?  How do you know if or when you need a

…………a lil’ bit about window dressings.

Windows, they are so lovely aren’t they?  I especially love mine when they are clean!   Windows let in the warm sunshine, the gentle breeze and the mysterious night sky.  They protect us from the outside elements and allow us to pear out, even on the coldest of days, as if in a snow globe watching intently as the flak

a lil’ bit of peace & joy….

…..Ahh!  Breathe.  Relax.  Escape from the outside chaos and enter into this calm, peaceful place that is your home.  What is the purpose of your home?  For me, it is to nurture, teach and protect our young children.  A place where we can come together, to relax, create and to be our authentic selves.
