    I have a confession, I had black heels that were lower on that day but they didn't photograph well which is why those are in the photo! I could NEVER have done that day in those heels 🙂

    This was so much fun to read, but I was worried about Maria at the end because she did not have dinner! Maybe she had some snacks at the designer event. I sound like her mother!

    Love the shoes too…

    Thanks for having our favorite "colour" expert on your fabulous blog. Maria is always one of my first reads of the day and it was great fun to follow in her shoes today. Great shoes to follow in too, I might add!

    Thanks for featuring Maria! I lovelovelove her blog, and, now I have found a new fun blog– yours! By the way, I think I am going to go with a cork floor, one of Maria's suggestions, and repaint the whole kitchen. We're not done yet in picking out colours and finding solutions, but that afternoon consultation helped me get clear about so many things for our new home.

get inspired with our own home tour


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, […]


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! […]

Budget Friendly Bar Carts

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 […]
