Pumpkin Time!

I know some of the pumpkin/ Halloween decor gets a little cheesy... but here are some that I thought were actually cute and creative!

Speaking of Halloween I think were celebrating tomorrow, think Kardashians.. I'll share pics.. They are going to be funny for sure!

I'm predicting lots of chilean miners, and Jersey Shore this year. Not gonna lie I was a little tempted to be Snookie....

Lexi's Mood Board

I thought it might be fun for you to see the process of creating a mood board. Usually the client has some inspiration pictures as well as some color preferences. Since most of the clients are Internet friends the best way to get a feel for what they want is through their inspiration photos.

Here are Lexi's:

Lexi said her favorite color is PINK that she loovveess it but that she wasn't so sure the hubby would be on board with that... She also liked Teal, Orange, and Navy.

Lexi admitted that like most of us she changes her mind A LOT, so I created a neutral backdrop so that when your mood changes you can easily change out pillows and and accessories to change the look of the room.

Had to do one with a little big of pink, but not enough to drive the Hubby away

And last we have the orange.

Which do you prefer?

Before and After

I love a good before and after, I find them so inspiring. Its so fun to see how far places can come, and how people can take a plain dated place and make it relevant and chic with not much more than fresh coat of paint.

adorable right!!

I Heart Dog Statues

Yes, I looovvveee Doggies, especially mine! I think your home should be a reflection of who you are and what you love. Since I love dogs I have little dog statues throughout(still on the hunt for some large greyhound ones)! Clearly, I'm not alone in my love, check out all these cools pads that have one thing in common....

Mellow Yellow

Lately I have been craving this mellow yellow color, it just enough of a happy sunny feeling without being too over the top "summer" it can translate easy from summer and spring to winter and fall.

Dont know if I would want to go with a statement piece or go all out and hit the walls with it!

Lucite Bar Stools= Love

My friends over at CSN Stores asked me to do a product review on one of their items, to which I replied. Sure! We all know how much I lovvvee all things lucite, so the first thing I thought of is the fablous line of "ghost" products they have. I have been lusting after their bar stools, for a while now. The Kartel are my fave!

They look especially cute with a cushion!! Now I just need this kitchen!

Serenity at it's Finest!

It's slightly chilly, overcast, and sprinkling, here in San Diego. I would so much rather being cozied up with a book in one of these serene little spaces rather than at work!

How about you? Got a case of the Mondays too? Hopefully these pretties will help!
