Step Into My Office…

Conducting business out of the home is something of the norm now a days. Knowing that your environment can influence your productivity, I have been exploring some beautiful home offices looking for inspirations for my own interior design project. Stay tuned for that. There are some that can take up a whole room to part of a room to sharing a guest room to hiding away in a closet. The opportunity to have a special space to take care of your business are only limited by you.

Restrooms, Bathrooms, or Washrooms…

As most know, the kitchens and bathrooms are what sell a house. I stated in my last post that I was about to undergo a kitchen remodel and that was an understatement because it is ultimately the whole house the will be redesigned. But I would like to start with the kitchen then the bathroom. So here on this post we will explore bathroom design ideas that are extravagant, exceptional, and unique…

Everything And The Kitchen Sink…

I am planning a kitchen remodel soon so I decided to share some design ideas I came across. The trends with kitchen design has changed from dark cabinets, granite counter tops, and tile floors to white cabinets, marble or quartz countertops, and wood floors and although both styles are beautiful I am always looking for something unique. So I will be showing you some alternatives.

Everyone’s kitchen now looks like this…

This is what kitchens used to look like…

Be Creative With Your DIY…Home Edition!!!…

There are definitely levels to the DIY experience and today we will explore the home decor aspect of it. You can actually go from as small as decor accessories to furniture to home remodeling. I would start small and work your way up if this is the first time trying a DIY. I get so excited when I find ways to put my personality on anything really, especially things I find in the thrift store that someone deemed trash. Well, lets get started…

Starting with decor accessories…

Flowers Are The Bouquet Of Life…

I enjoy greatly seeing, smelling, and the arrangement of beautiful flowers. Flowers bring joy for many different occasions, birth, death, marriage, and expressions of Love and gratitude. I believe it is a form of art and some possess a gift in how and what flowers go great together. There is a lot that goes into perfecting a beautiful flower arrangement, the base, the greenery (if any), the color scheme, the actual type of flowers, and the arrangement of the flowers. I want to explore this a little more with you all…

Materials we might not even think about…

The Interior Design Details…

There is a special place in my heart for interior design and everything that comes with it. I believe like in life it’s the little things that make your place Unique. Beyond the four walls and the furniture, decor is in the details. The small things that are placed and pull it all together. The lighting, artwork, rugs, and even the things that may look like they have no real purpose. They give an overall pleasing aesthetic that ultimately enhances life.  I want to share some of my most Unique finds…

Here are some door knob options that I find interesting…

The Most Amazing Architecture!!!

I have a true Love for real estate but I am the most in Love with Unique architecture and aspects of construction that are not easily found and hard to take your eyes off while sparking a yearning to live there forever. I admire the designers that dare to push the limits of what some call a normal necessity. I have searched and found the highest of quality and most unique designs from all over the world. I hope it inspires you to live a life unexpected by raising the bar…

My Future Daughter’s Bedroom…

Every so often I have a pin on Pinterest that receives a lot of attention. So I decide to share it with you and for some reason everyone is loving a furniture piece that I picked out for my future daughter’s room…

And the feature presentation is….with 70 repins and 17 likes and counting…

Dress up that dresser and make it pretty for me!!!

The other day my mother said she saw a dresser on the curb but didn’t know if I would want it. Just know mom, I always want it and I think this way because there is always something that can be done to bring it back to life and make it beautiful. If the drawers are unusable then you can try this…

The Mirror Has an Interesting Way of Looking at Things!!!…

Some might not think a mirror is a basic necessity but everyone has at least one. I am always looking for mainstream items that look exceptionally unique and I have found that in these mirrors.  When I am forced to have something that everyone else has, I enjoy finding the one that stands out from the rest. You will be surprised at how much a beautiful mirror will cost these days but it’s well worth it. The good thing is it don’t cost a thing to look. Check out these beauties and Love Always…
