    I admire anyone who can really mix things up so well. I really like all of these rooms – each one has so many interesting things to look at. Happy weekend to you!

  2. Lauren says:

    love that sofa fabric!!!

    Hey Camila-
    So your post today reminded me of this post from Cote de Texas last month.

    Just thought it was interesting how you guys had two totally different perspectives on this designer and thought you might want to read her take. It seems to have brought up some controversy on Cote de Texas's blog!

  4. Jennifer says:

    she can definitely mix it up!

    thanks for the sweet mention and the link!

  5. Design Esquire says:

    I agree, the mix of styles works so well here. And I love all the little landscape paintings, they are so beautifully presented. Have a great weekend!

  6. LindsB says:

    love the shelving in the office!

    I hope you have a nice relaxing weekend…you deserve it 🙂

  7. Southern Aspirations says:

    eclectic, but in a good way. my fave is the library-looking area. love the orange throw, wall color, and bookshelves.

    have a great weekend!!

  8. Shannon says:

    see, this is what i am unable to accomplish! maybe if i stare at those photos long enough it will break me out of my matchy matchy hypnosis.

    have a great weekend!

  9. Wanderings of a Wannabe says:

    she rocks! love that yellow chair fabric. have a great weekend 🙂

    Thanks Re:Fresh for the Joni link. I don't read Joni's blog all the time so I must have missed that one and it was quite the post.

    I like the rooms. Not sure exactly what the means about me. Sure nothing everything is something I would have done. I only posted the images I liked there were others in her portfolio that I disliked, but to me it was just an example of how you to mix and match in home.

    Simply just eye candy.

    I really love the office with the little rhino and the art/pics displayed on the wall. Beautiful!

  12. Sweet Nothings says:

    busy weeks mean people want your knowledge in design! yay for you!!

    have a relaxing weekend! i actually started to look to take some design courses while I am unemployed..its not quite as easy as i hoped to find some in LA! 🙁 that is my project this weekend!

    Hi, I have only been following your blog for two weeks but there is someone I would love for you to do an "in her shoes" segment. Here is her blog:

    Thanks and I love your blog I am so glad you put time into.
    Thanks You,

  14. RLG says:

    I love Kristen Buckingham, too. Thanks for the lovely pictures. I saw FM in the spring, and Lindsay was to-die-for. I couldn't decide if I wanted to be him (b/c he's talented), or eat him (b/c he's absolutely gorgeous). Cheers!

  15. bluehydrangea says:

    I love Lindsey! She has a unique way of decorating…love the way she mixes it all up so it doesn't look so done.

  16. RLG says:

    I just read the Cote de Texas post on KB. Yikes. Does she rant against every designer she wouldn't personally use to decorate her own house? Why does eclectic insight such rage??? Too funny.

  17. Yansy says:

    Love all of the pics. She has a great eye, not everyone can mix different styles and still make it look sophisticated.

  18. PS~Erin says:

    LOVE that first image!

    (Big Fleetwood Mac fan over here!)

  19. Kristen says:

    oh I LOVE these pictures!

  20. Courtney says:

    That HEADBOARD in the last photo. Good gracious, that's amazing.

  21. Marie says:

    It's very eclectic, true to herself, which I love!

  22. Mademoiselle Frou-Frou says:

    my favorite pictures are the top one and the room with the landscape paintings on the wall – how perfect!

  23. nkp says:

    I have a serious soft spot for a good gallery art wall and that first shot is good. So, so good! I loved that home when it first appeared in Elle Decor(?), she is a serious talent. Beautiful work!

  24. Re:Fresh Design Studio says:

    I agree with you on the eye candy thing. Sometimes you just want to admire a room for what it is-something fun to look at and not analyze every thing in the room down to the minor details. There is a time and place for that-sure-when you want to learn more specifically about design, but sometimes you just want eye candy!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
