A Cottage Side Table



It's gorgeous here today and I love this time of year.
I took Monday off to clean out my house...

I'm not one that's into spring cleaning and scheduling it into my life...but this is a have to do project!
I have two mattresses in my hallway and a mess of other things that will be going to my husband's studio...
It's going up for sell and I have to stage it... 


But, I wanted to share with you some styles that I'm loving....

Joni over at Cote De Texas showed this image on her blog...
I have always loved this shape of a table and I love the floral chintz....






Phoebe Howard uses this shape of table often in her designs, but it's not as rustic..














I would love to add it to a room with this fabric by Thibaut.. 

















I'm thinking of where could I use this table!

Love how it looks in Nicky Haslams window..

If you want to see more of his work check out Cote De Texas Blog... 




( Thibaut)


It would be pretty to add the table into a room like this one too...


Do you ever see something that just makes you smile and you just gotta have it?


I'm exhausted from cleaning all day and were going out to dinner...so Ive gotta go!


Have a great week!

Light Stained Woods




Have you noticed the 70s and 80s influence in design....

A lot of Clothes and Sunglasses Ive seen lately remind me of that era...
And the white washed woods in decor..

I'm loving the light washed woods Alessandra Branca used in her vacation home.








It works great with natural woods and a pop of color.














Pecky Cedar wood was popular in the 70s, but it was shown in a brown or natural stain...

It has a lot of texture and personality! 

I like the up-dated look!







 




It also looks great mixed with white painted woods and dark woods... 

Notice the floor...
 Pretty huh!

Dana Wolf used it on the ceiling... 















Isn't this a great shot?
Pekie Ceder stained green looks beautiful...

I like when there is a mix of  woods in a room and a mix of stain colors...it gives it interest...

Design is all about balance,color and texture...

When it's done right, a gorgeous room is born!

Bohemian Vintage





I have been attracted to vintage bohemian style all my life and its a style I never get sick of....

My daughter has a love for it also...
I guess we are hippies at heart...





Black Spiro 




Inlaid anything  makes my heart skip a beat..







 
Blackband Interiors




I love black chairs and a style that is casual...






 





Now this shirt and sun glasses....right out of the 70s....
My name is all over this number!










Here are some of my fun things I have found...













This box was a HomeGoods find, but it was perfect for my tray... 











I couldn't decide which image I liked so I put all of them up... 











The belts are so cool...
The buckles are real silver...
The natural belt to the right is a wrap belt and it looks like it could be from the Ralph Lauren collection..










The scarf is drop dead gorgeous... 











I'm not sure what I'm going to wear the necklace with, but I fell in love with it...
Maybe I'll put it in a bowl for display..









This is the other belt... 











A beautiful chain of coral








and my hippie top.... 











I found two of these lamps...

They have to go to the lamp store for harps...

I love finding things that you don't see everyday...

Those are the items that make your home look unique and gives it a collected look... 

A style that represents you... 

Have you run into anything that stopped you in your tracks and you had to buy it?

Summerland and a Birthday Lunch




I just celebrated my birthday with my daughter and daughter-in-law up in Summerland.  





We visited some of the cute little shops...
This was at Botanik, one of my favorites..



 


We also went to an area called Santa Clause Lane and had lunch... 




I loved these big pots... 





 





 We had lunch at the cutest restaurant...

It was the perfect place to eat with my grand-daughter...








 She was entertained by the birds and had fun playing in the water fountain...

Isn't she cute? 







It was so relaxing sitting out in the garden and enjoying the day... 









Here's the family...
My daughter and I, my daughter in-law and my cute grand- daughter...
My daughter is 4 months pregnant and she is just starting to show...... 








There's nothing better than a day with the girls!

Model Homes in Orange County and Shopping


I went through some model homes
while I was in Orange County ....

   
One of my favorite things to do...

They had some great ideas...










 This was one large ottoman.. 














The backyards were small, but great for entertaining... 












I love this idea of a step down seating area...












This was a courtyard in the center of the house...













One of my favorite chairs....
Its made by Noir...



 


Ya know...
 I'm not a fan of flat screens on the wall...

Someone has got to design a television that looks pretty...

It's not just about function...

I'm sure my husband will be rolling his eyes over this one... 
























While I was shopping in Orange county I saw this  adorable chair at Crate and Barrel...
I believe they were $399.00 each.








I like the gray and white chair better...

 





It was fun to see my sons beer at the market in Orange County...
I'm sure people were wondering why this crazy women was taking pictures of beer and all excited about it...
It all comes down to one thing...

PROUD MAMA!

Clients Family Room



Winter finally hit Southern California ...
Its been raining cat and dogs and its cold!  
 OK...

 So.... I'm a little spoiled....

I don't know what cold really is...
 huh!


You can see be our photo shoot last week that we "Southern Californians" really hadn't seen a winter until now...

We needed rain so bad!


This is the family room I designed in Orange County. 


I took these with my Galaxy Note phone.... 
The images are great..... 

My children tease me because the phone is so big....
but my pictures are better than theirs! 


 I can't wait to see the professional pictures...







I love this shot....

I like a little color with gray..


Its happy.... 













































We bought the book-shelve from Restoration Hardware....












A lot of you emailed me and wanted to know what the counter tops were made of......

The black is made out of quarts and the island is a marble...

Sorry I didn't email you back sooner... 








Next week I'll have some great photos to share with you of some model homes I went through.... 

Hope you have a great week and thanks for stopping bye...
