SHINE A LIGHT ON DESIGN - LIGHTING IN DECOR

A good percentage of the time, the problem with a room design is simply a matter of lighting.

I hear about rooms being dark, looking dingy, and people not wanting to use curtains or window coverings because they feel it would cut down the light in the room.  Truth is, most rooms don't have adequate lighting.

GREAT IDEAS FOR PATIOS AND DECKS ( AND JESSICAS HOUSE COLORS)

A GIRL CAN DREAM
Lately, I have completely ignored the outside areas of my home
and it really needs some attention...

but while curb appeal is important, there are other outdoor areas to consider...

I think it is just as important to have a little private spot

SUMMER GARDEN IDEAS...

Summer is never complete without a trip - or several trips - to my favorite nursery, Rogers Gardens in Corona Del Mar.

they are famous for their amazing hanging baskets
this one is about 3 feet across

URBAN FARMHOUSE STYLE

MELLENCAMP'S VACATION HOME...
You may remember him as John "Cougar" Mellencamp, although he dropped the nickname and got serious about rock and roll.  Apparently he got serious about his home design as well - or at least hired a decorator who knew their stuff.
A little austere in places, his South Carolina Daufuskie Island retreat still has charm and tons of style, and still speaks to the heartland of America.


Rustic materials for the modern bed, shiplap walls and golden floors keep this room from feeling too severe.  It has rustic, masculine appeal.  The dark painted ceiling adds a layer of coziness.

MANTLE REDO

Couldn't resist posting this photo of the flower girls and the little 'ring bearer'
Adorable! Right?

There's nothing wrong with this mantle, really.
Maybe just a little 'ordinary'...

THE DALLAS WEDDING...

IF I COULDN'T LIVE IN CALIFORNIA, I'D LIVE IN TEXAS...

Long time since my last post....
I've had a little adventure...(or should I call it a misadventure?)
Funny how one moment you are just fine and the next - not so fine...

I flew to Dallas to do a wedding for a most beautiful bride...
