The Fourth Of July

Happy birthday, United States of America!!!

Hopefully you’re like me and the rest of America, taking a nice long weekend to celebrate.

I’m taking it a little easy this week. Do feel free to check out this post I did last year on the theory of creating stunning red, white, and blue rooms.

How did your weekend go?


Katie Rosenfeld Design

Katie Rosenfeld is my interior design animal spirit. She injects fun patterns and colors in to every single one of her design projects, which is something that I aspire to do. A lot of her designs have a global flair, particularly when she infuses a lot of Asian influence and some chinoiserie.


DIY: Abstract Word Art

Maybe this needs to be a lesson on styling a little vignette. But, it’s too late to go back and start over to get those paint colors just right, now.


Every now and then I like to create my own word art. Like the typical art creator, I’m very hard on myself about how things turn out, especially when I’m working on a cake. My cakes always turn out tasty, but the decorating part- the devil is in the details, y’all. Anyway, I liked how this word art turned out.


The Spotlight: Whimsical Entryway

Talk about a striking first impression the moment you walk in through that door. That wallpaper is called “Daydream” by Julia Rothman for Hygge & West. And how about that vintage Italian lantern from Upstairs/Downstairs Antiques? I’m not sure I’ve seen anything exactly like it. I love how the striped stair runners and the door ties in with the wallpaper. That tribal rug. At first I didn’t like it with the rest of the room, but the longer I look at this picture, the more I love that it adds personality to the entryway. It’s the punch of color to break up the monotony color of blue. It’s the traditional aspect of the room to ground all this airy whimsical personality.
