I have a bazillion candles: tall, short, fat, thin, white and colored, shaped, and cylindrical. They soothe my soul, instantly inspire me to S-L-O-W down, and magically add calm to my world. Yes, they’re unequivocally romantic, and we often light them for “special occasions,” but w... Continue Reading

We collect houses. I’m not talking Thomas Kinkade-esque miniature villages displayed on lit shelves throughout American homes, I am talking actual mortgage attached houses. This is not by choice. I love houses, but not necessarily this way. My husband and I bought our 1st house in 2004. We were under 30, employed and finally in a city where we could (almost) afford a starter home. Las Vegas, Nevada. The market was hot. Bidding wars were the norm. Home ownership during that time, in that city, was all pride and sunshine. Two years later my career ... Continue Reading

Henry David Thoreau shed a little light on the subject of design when he wrote, “Always the laws of light are the same, but the modes and degrees of seeing vary.”
I love this quote because it shows just how important and how complex light really is. As the light of day changes, shadows move and change color as well. Our goal is to find the perfect light for painting the most beautiful spaces within our homes.
Lighting is the single most important aspect of our lives. It affects our mood, our ability to see and perceive beauty, and the appearance of colors. And no light is as beau... Continue Reading

The freezing cold winter is keeping many of us inside in hibernation mode. Now is a great time to take a long, hard look at our interiors. Do you like what you see? Does your home reflect you?
It’s easy to lose sight of decorating goals when there’s carpooling, work, shrinking budgets and so many other issues in the way. Clutter, hand-me-downs and regrettable purchases can take-over our rooms. Before you know it, home isn’t so sweet.
Let’s redecorate. You can make a big difference with a little bit of thought, a little effort and even a little bu... Continue Reading

Have you ever been in a ladies room so packed with amenities that lingering to freshen up became a lovely experience? You can take those mints and the ideas home with you. Your powder room can be more than just a pit stop. Having a sweet lady handing out towels and drying up the sink area might be a bit much, but let's recreate the simple stuff. First, could your loo use a redo? A small Royal Palace rug is a step above your basic bath mat and can up the sink area style. Please forgo the fuzzy toilet seat covers. It's a dated look and kind of icky. Upgrade a plain unframed mirror to a work of ... Continue Reading
