Guest Post: Eid Entertaining

Eid is all about entertaining! You’re either going to big events, having a big event, or entertaining a steady stream of people that come by the house over the holidays.

The Designer’s Home Tour

Ever wonder how a real interior designer would set up a home here? Well, you’re in for a treat! I met Rilia through my friend Zaza, the one with the awesome shabby chic home that I covered a few weeks ago. Rilia is Zaza’s next door neighbor, and while they have houses that look the same from the outside, […]
