It's been awhile since I've written a "Guess who's dropping in for coffee" post. So, I'm starting it off with a very talented designer. Jana Bek does not disappoint with her beautiful style and her signature brush stroke lamps. I've got my eye on one once I finally get my master bedroom completed. So grab your morning beverage of choice, join me on this fun read and start off your day with some beautiful inspiration! 1. Growing up what did you want to do? I only knew I wanted to be creative, then in college I knew I wanted my career

Morning y'all! This week has gone by quickly and on Monday my oldest starts school. Bye bye summer, hello school. Since we are getting school ready I thought it was time for the boys playroom to get some love. When I was offered an opportunity to work with World Market I was all over it! I love their home decor items. I have used so many of their products in my projects and my clients. They're eclectic, fun and the pieces are unique and amazing! One area I wanted to revamp was their art table.

Morning friends! Last week was such a busy week of catch up that I had to take a small break from the blog. This week we are on vacation and I'm trying to sneak in as much time as I can writing posts, sending out proposals, house hunting & creating mood boards for projects while actually having a vacation. So, of course in doing all this, I am all over the internet finding beautiful things that I feel need to be shared. Y'all I stared at this image for 10 minutes. I wanted to take in all the detail.

Morning friends!  How was your Monday? Mine was productive and I enjoyed getting a lot done.   I'm excited to share some beautiful inspirational home designs, fun decor and of course fabulous fashion.  This farmhouse is a scene out of a movie. I love the windows.  Farmhouse Exterior by Charlotte Architects & Building Designers Pursley Dixon Architecture This bedroom ceiling reminds me of the kitchen project I'm working on. I love this space it is stunning from top to bottom. So much detail and so simple. Farmhouse Bedroom by Santa Barbara General Contractors Giffin & Crane General Contractors, Inc.

Swing arm and library lights are popping up everywhere. Bookcases, kitchens, bathrooms and other rooms. They make such a great statement above windows, on miscellaneous places on the wall and on bookcases. Here's my quick list that won't break the bank. This light screams coastal to me and I love the color choices. This one has a very industrial look but I love it. Add an Edison bulb and voila! I'd be tempted to spray paint this one gold if this color didn't work. For the price it's a no brainer! Another great price and fun light. These are a fabulous price and

So, there's no hiding how much I love fashion. I do love to dress up, but I also have a very casual, comfortable style. I need to look put together but also be comfortable because I could be showing a home, meeting a design client, knocking down a wall or being with my boys. So, I put together a quick list of some staple pieces that I'm going to be purchasing that will be worn repeatedly, mixed & matched. Click on the images below to see additional details on the products. Aren't these great? Affordable, cute, staple items and just fun!

Morning friends! I actually wrote this on Saturday morning because this image below stopped me in my tracks and I thought, better get started, so here we go! Where do I start to? The marble, the lighting, the cabinet color, the cabinet details, the benches, I mean the list goes on why I'm crushing on this space. Do y'all agree?

When I work on projects, I always have a short list of my no fails go to paint colors that I love to use over and over. They're great colors that go with almost all aesthetics and design styles. We all know that gray and white are very popular in design right now. But, the question always is what gray or white do we use? So, below I have compiled a short list of my favorite light grays, whites and dark grays. But, always test before painting because walls can do funny things and colors can sometimes not turn
