I think we sometimes take our dresser for granted by piling it high with a disorganized mess. Unworn clothing, scattered jewelry, loose change strewn across it’s surface and discarded knick-knacks. Somehow, the dresser always ends up being a catch all for everything unwanted. But it doesn’t have to be this way! I like to keep […]

How to create a rustic and romantic dining room?

April 21, 2014

Let’s pause for a moment to appreciate this stunning dining room. It literally took my breath away! From the raw, reclaimed woods with its beautiful grains that seem to tell a romantic story to those fresh white industrial aluminum chairs….. ohhh and that chevron hardwood floor that’s just begging for a luxurious white faux fur rug is beyond divine. And can we talk about that brilliant chandelier which brings an ultra glamorous feel to this space? It adds a definitive sophisticated softness to this otherwise raw and rustic dining room. Pulling it all together are romantic details such as pale pink roses, delicate branches from earthen pottery and chic artwork on the wall.

This room is simple yet spectacular, here’s how I would re-create it at home:

Modern Luxury Livingroom in Miami

Now this is what I call a room with a view! Luxury real estate in Miami is all about maximizing this stunning water view and with floor to ceiling windows in this space the ocean is definitely the main attraction. The monotone color scheme of soft white sets the stage for a backdrop of blue skies and turquoise waters. The low profile of furniture also provides an unobstructed view while emphasizing tall ceilings. This livingroom is modern and minimal with a relaxed contemporary vibe. Here’s how you can achieve a similar look!

How to make DIY chalkboard wine glasses

April 30, 2014

Have you ever been to a party and your wine glass mysteriously disappears or you accidentally mistook someone else’s glass for yours? Well, that’s happened to me so many times that it’s kind of annoying! Here’s a really cool DIY idea to make sure that never happens again. Enter the Chalkboard Wine Glass! The bottoms of stemware are dipped in chalkboard paint which allows you to label your glass and conveniently locate it when you need a refill.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Wine glasses
  • Chalkboard paint
  • Painter’s tape
  • 1 small disposable dish
  • Chalk

Step 1. Using the painter’s tape, wrap the tape just above the foot of the wine glass.

Step 2. Pour enough chalkboard paint to cover the bottom of the wine glass into your small disposable dish.

Step 3. Dip the entire bottom of the wine glass into the chalkboard paint.

Step 4. Slowly lift the glass out of the paint, allowing the excess to drip off.

Step 5. Carefully invert the wine glass to dry for about 24 -48 hours.

When it’s dried, you’ll be able to write on this newly painted surface. Please be sure to handwash these chalkboard wine glasses!

Enjoy!

April 29, 2014

Clearly, bar carts are still all the rage and I wanted to share one of my favorites.

It’s sleek, minimal design is perfect for small spaces and the tray is actually removable which means you can take the party outside by simply lifting the handles. This butler tray is quite versatile and can be used as a side table or small vanity and at only $149, it’s quite a steal.

An inexpensive bathroom makeover in Russian Hill, San Francisco.

February 3, 2014

When it comes to city living, apartment bathrooms are often small, dingy and in serious need of updating. To breathe new life into this tiny, boring bathroom……  first things first: CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN!!! Cleaning and de-cluttering a space will make it look bigger and brighter. Next, I wanted to bring in a refreshing pop of bold color by adding this graphic floral shower curtain from World Market. The colors are fresh, soothing and spa like! Storage is always an issue for small spaces but trying to add additional cabinets or shelves can make your bathroom look even smaller. My solution: hang beautiful baskets on the wall! It’s a stylish yet functional way to store and display bath items.  Now, here comes the fun part…. Accessories! Adding beautiful inexpensive touches such as fresh flowers, scented soaps, lotions, candles, towels and beautiful jars filled with bath necessities will set the stage for a stylish bathroom. To round it all out, adding a soft and cozy bath mat will make stepping out of your shower a luxurious treat!
