    I have redone my entire living room, painted all of the furniture either white or black, injected that lovely apple green on pillows and some accessories also added turquoise into the mix. I love it, and can't wait to see what your sister's apartment will look like finished although I can see it in my minds eye. It will be gorgeous! I had one of my black chairs fabric in black and white toile. Like minds huh??? 🙂

    Love the little dinning nook, very cute.

    This weekend I went to the Grand Opening of the LA Flea Market. I'm re-doing my daughters bedroom and still looking for inspiration and stuff. Too hot to shop though:(


  17. Emily A. Clark says:

    Okay now I'm about to kick myself for selling the exact same desk last week. Ugh! I still have the same mirror and dresser though so I'm feeling inspired for sure. . . Too cute!

    I actually stopped by to tell you I linked to your wonderful no-sew roman shades on my blog today 🙂

  18. Stephanie Sabbe says:

    looks great! I hear you on the traffic. I left Manhattan at 7 pm on Friday, not the best idea.

  19. Emily @ Mini House says:

    Can I sign up to be your "adopted" sister?! You are soo talented and I just love the orange/white dresser. If you get a chance, can you tell me if you purchased the knobs somewhere or if they came with the originals? Thanks!!

  20. cassie @ hi sugarplum! says:

    Can't wait to see it all! What's the name of the orange paint? I'm about to redo my son's room and need the perfect orange!

  21. twolovelyspaces says:

    Wow, sounds like you had a weekend similar to mine. I was running around hitting up close out sales at big box retailers for a client. Your weekend looks more creative than mine though. Seriously beautiful turn out on the furniture. Can't wait to see the styled room.

  22. Living Livelier says:

    The bamboo is out of this world girl! Did the bamboo hardware come with the pieces, or did you add that? Phenomenal!

  23. ashlina {the decorista} says:

  26. Averill says:

    I'm swooning over the kelly green desk — and the white hardware is fantastic!

  27. High-Heeled Foot in the door says:

    So happy you guys like!

    I really wanted my sister to have a bright and happy vibe in her bedroom so I went a little color happy, but it works!

    The hardware came with the pieces. I just cleaned them up and gave them a fresh coat of paint.

  28. diane@onlinefabricstore says:

    Lucky sister! I admire her willingness to use orange, green, black and toile all in the same space. Looks great though

  29. gg says:

    love the orange and white dresser. it would go great with the rug in your previous post. 🙂

  33. Risa West says:

    love the toile. i found a bentwood rocker that needs to be updated and i think i'll do a similar look on it to the chairs you did. black paint with toile. it'll be perfect for my little girl's room

  34. Helena - A Diary of Lovely says:

    oooh im so so jealous of the yellow desk! beautiful

  35. Shannon @ Sit.Relax.Gossip. says:

    The white bamboo and orange dresser is AMAZING! I've never really been into orange, but I would put that in my house in an instant. I'm anxiously waiting to see the finished product!

  36. Mackenzie {Design Darling} says:

    I love what you did with the two bamboo pieces! The green is fantastic — I swear there's nothing a fresh coat of paint can't do! I spent the weekend painting my new bedroom "Sexy Pink" and then tracing out rectangles around where the bed will go to add a little architectural interest. A very hot and busy weekend indeed but it feels so good to be productive!

  37. Shannon @ What's Up Whimsy says:

    Holy moly! That desk and dresser look amazing! I love both of those colours!

  38. Michelle says:

    I am loving those bamboo pieces!!!

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, […]

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 […]
