Style vs. Practicality in Home Decorating

Blue and White Living Room  Serena & Lily

I had this gorgeous blue and white living room photo sent to me the other day by Serena & Lily showcasing their new product line available starting on Friday, and I immediately knew it would inspire some of the changes we’re going to make to our main floor. As mentioned on Monday, we are starting […]

First Home Project Plans for 2014

Bistro Glass Shelf- Restoration Hardware

As mentioned last week, I’ve been working behind the scenes on the blog to bring everything up to date and clear out anything that no longer serves a purpose. It seems like every facet of our lives needs a re-working some time or another, doesn’t it? My birthday is this week (it’s a biggie), and […]

I Want Your Input, Please!

Satori Design for Living Project Gallery

Hello everyone! I hope you had a fantastic holiday season. As luck would have it, I started feeling lousy on Christmas Eve and couldn’t even get out of bed until December 27th. Although I was able to make our New Year’s trip out to the mountains, I had to forgo skiing or much of anything […]

Year in Review {2013}

Skiing Sunshine 2013

It’s that time again when the calendar is about to turn to another year! Although I’m taking a short break from blogging, I thought I’d stop by quickly to review a few of my favorite and most memorable moments of 2013. Before I get to that, I must first thank each and every one of […]

September: Time for Making Changes

Changing Ourselves Quote- Max De Pree

Does September feel like a fresh start to you? Although January typically marks new beginnings in most people’s minds, I tend to have these types of feelings in September. I think it has to do with all the years I spent at school, university, and then being a teacher. Later on, I even started my […]

I’m officially back from the holiday break, and unlike a lot of people returning to work, it’s a happy time for me. I feel so fortunate to love what I do, and I’m definitely blessed to have kind and supportive clients and readers who continue to be a source of inspiration. Thank you! Over the past […]

House Proud?

Nate Berkus

Do you have those days when you look around and all you see is the stuff you don’t like about your home? Forget about the beautiful pillows you have on your sofa or the collection of gorgeous black and white photos grouped on a wall in your family room. Your eyes bypass the good and […]

Reflecting on 8 Years {Our Home}

Stone Pad 1

We’re approaching the 8 year mark since we moved into our home- 2 if you’re counting leap years because we moved in on February 29 (I’ve heard that it’s good luck when big things happen on that day!). When we purchased our home it was at the beginning of the housing boom. We were fortunate […]
