This bookcase is so wonderfully decorated, it's perfect.  There is a "full" feel to it, yet it is not cluttered.  The grouping of similar accent items keeps the look organized.  The color scheme of blue and white, with touches of black lend it a sophisticated beachy feel.  Oh, if I only had a beach house...

Table Toppers: Designer Tip

You've got a beautiful table, a set of plates, silverware, and chairs that you've just reupholstered...but something is still missing.  A little texture or the unexpected can make your table setting wow your guests.
A little wooden stool - perhaps found at a flea market or antique store, gives a little height to a vase.

Stone flooring tiles add texture as an unusual table mat.

Glass vases filled with rope add a textured, nautical feel.

Branches.  You can leave them natural or spray paint them a bold, glossy color.

Fruit and veggies have always been a popular choice, 
but fill tall cylinder vases with it and you'll add a little more drama to the table.

Have you tried any usual table decor?

What do you think of these unique wreaths?  Perfect for doors, over mirrors, or adorning any plain wall, they can add that touch of the season without overwhelming your regular decor.

The Nightstand:

They can be small, wide, square, round, tall, short.  They can have drawers, legs, cabinets, and mirrored tops.  They can be painted, distressed, sleek, or warm wood tones.  Whatever they are, nightstands are as unique and individual as the person that uses them.  Is your nightstand neat and organized, full of magazines like mine, or a resting place for all of your favorite things?

Feminine Friday: Sweet Cream

Cream is a soothing, calm and warm color.  It's great for bedrooms or any space in your home that you would like to feel "quiet."  Pair it with warm wood tones or painted furniture, gold accents, even silver.  Cream interiors can be feminine and frilly, or modern with a feminine vibe.  Anything goes when you use this pretty neutral.

Happy Hump Day...

So glad today is Wednesday, just a little hump to get over before the weekend!  Any big plans?

Feminine Friday: The Perfect Closet

This walk-in closet is near perfect.  It's not too big, not too small, just right.  It's lit well and everything is accessible and   has a home.  I might add a little square or round ottoman to add some softness, but otherwise, I'm dreaming of this closet...

What do you think?  Would you go larger?

Feminine Friday: Have it Your Way

Neutrals with touches of purple adds a little soft and soothing color...

Splashes of pink and aqua make a feminine, yet bold space...

Bold patterns mixed with shades of coral and hot pink still evokes a feminine spirit.

However you like it, soft and sweet, a little sass, or over the top bold, 
feminine can work for you and your own style.
