A Cozy & Stylish Home and Garden Tour

When I start thinking about the kind of outdoor space that I’d want for myself, it would look a lot like what Jennifer has done in her home. Her ability to extend the stylishness of her indoor living space into the outdoors is truly inspiring.

The Art Collector’s Home Tour

When I first walked into Zainab’s home, I knew straight away that this was a girl with a really good eye, and she definitely wasn’t going to let anyone get in the way of making her home super stylish and comfortable. She had not only done what we all normally do (paint, decorate with accessories, bring in some […]

Justine’s home and outdoor living spaces are ALL heart. Everything she loves is in there.

I originally saw her home and creative ideas on Instagram, and knew immediately that she had that very unique skill of being able to make the most ordinary things look extra special. Her Instagram feed is one of my favorites because of how pretty she makes […]

A Very Stylish Halloween Home Tour!

I’ve often found it difficult to imagine how one tastefully incorporates Halloween décor into their home. I’ve always seen great fall décor items, but I don’t see witches, ghosts, skeletons and just the combination of black and orange, in general, working in my home… However, I do happen to have a wonderfully stylish friend who seems to totally get […]

A Pinterest-y Inspired House

This home is the definition of my obsession with Pinterest and why it can be such an amazing source of inspiration. This particular homeowner is pretty much a home decorating blog and pinning junky like me, so it was great to be able to see how a DIYer translates projects, by Western bloggers who shop at Lowe’s and Home […]
