Lighting I Love: Coleen and Co.

Perfection. Period. In an entryway, kitchen, bathroom, hallway, or bedroom Coleen and Co.'s lighting will add the missing piece in the most fabulous way.

Wallpaper that I'm Crushing on

 You all know by now how much I love me some fun, loud, colorful, refreshing burst of wallpaper. My favorite ways to add bold patterned paper in the home is- in the back of a bookcase, inside a glass front cabinet, on an accent wall or ceiling, framed as artwork, or in a nursery, laundry room, linen closet, and/or powder room.  If you have a space that is begging for some attention let me know.  For now, here are some of my absolute faves!

Demeter Stripe, by Clarissa Hulse

Tears from Paradise, Elitis

Absence of Rose, Vivienne Westwood

Lily of the Valley, Cole & Son

Indulgence, Harlequin

Rosella, Harlequin

Teaspoons Wallpaper, Studio Ditte

Family K's Kitchen Reno!

Family K wanted a sophisticated/elegant/traditional/homey/beachy vibe for their kitchen.  Wife K wanted white cabinets but was overruled by hubby K who does most of the cooking.  It took a bit of time but we found the perfect wood stain that we all agreed would look gorgeous and would suit their overall vision.  To lighten things up a bit, we chose Silestone's "Lyra" for the countertops and a beautiful glass/marble mosaic backsplash.  The pendants are a perfect finishing touch with just the right dose of beach! 

(Unfortunately, my amateur camera doesn't do the floor justice- it is the perfect greige color!)

What Excites Us!

My new laundry hamper arrived from One Kings Lane and I couldn't be happier with it!

My boys were pretty excited about it (ie the bubble wrap it came with) also...
