My husband was hired to build these. He did such a good job even though he was super busy/stressed at his Real Full time job ;) 

I am so lucky to be married to a guy who can build anything! And make a Client Happy with Beautiful Built-ins!

Bathroom Accessories

My sister just updated her bathroom with a few Super Cute Accessories. 

By adding the shelving behind the toilet it gave her more room for her accessories she already had to display.

What do you think? I think she did really well putting the colors together on her OWN!! Good Job, Becky!

Client Bookshelf Styling

My Client just bought a beautiful new home. In her main living room there are these gorgeous built-ins by the fireplace. Using things she had. I styled her Bookshelves.

New Winter Accessories | Around the House

The hubby gave me a West Elm Gift Card for Christmas. One of the many presents. He spoiled me. ;)

I have always loved this guy but never really thought to buy him. Well with gift card in hand I purchased him. Even after bringing him home. I debated where to put him. After much consideration. I found the perfect spot. Over the Fireplace! Can you think of a better place? It just seemed so perfect. Now that he's up. I can't stop staring! I Love my Paper Mache Deer Head.

These cute little trees I picked up at Target. After Christmas Cleareance for $2. I was so stoked when I got them. Knowing they would be so perfect for my kitchen window. Again, I still stop and stare. Steal of a Deal!

New Gourds I got from West Elm (in-store) on Clearance for $6. It ties in the Orange suitcase well.  I put them on top of the bookshelf to display.

 Jim's family had there Family History made into a Book for Christmas. Yes I said it. A Book. It is so awesome and so interesting I had to put it out.

And Lastly, My cinnamon pine cones My hubby picked up at Christmas, were reused as a centerpiece for my table. Plus they still smell good.

Have you purchased any new accessories for Winter?

What to do with waste of space | Alcoves & Built-ins

Such a perfect example of a good Waste of Space! Seriously. What do you do with big whole's in the wall?


You knock out some of that wall and make BUILT INS!

This Arch/ Ledge kills me! Kills Me!!

Brilliant. Knock out more waste of space in the wall and create Cabinetry underneath.

All Images from The Cottage Mix! Three Cheers to Lauren making use of some serious Waste of Space!

P.S. A New Header for a New Year 2013. Do you like my new Blog Header? Thanks to my hubby for helping long into the night or should I say morning. ;)

Lovely Gold Accents

I have really been drawn to GOLD lately! But after viewing these images, can you blame me?? 
Are you a fan of Gold like me?  Do you design your rooms with Gold Accents? 
Or do you think it is just a trend that will fade?
