Pillow Talk

It seems, from personal experience, chatter with friends, and client requests that the master bedroom ends up being one of the last places in our homes to receive those "finishing touches"....after all we only sleep there right? WRONG! Your bedroom should be calm & relaxing but still reflective of your personal style....

Calming & Relaxing doesn't have to mean - neutrally bland - choose softer wall colors and a clean palette and then add punch of color/pattern with a throw or pillow.

Re-work & Re-use...hey if your lucky enough to own a vintage Louis Vuitton luggage set break that out of the closet and use it as your nightstand. If not, I'm sure you have some old piece of furniture that's dying for a little "TLC"

Got a space that just seems to large and open? Creating a canopy over your bed can help contain the space. An easy DYI solution: Purchase drapery hardware that can be mounted from the ceiling, then use drapery panels to create the illusion of a traditional four post canopy bed, with a modern twist

Manic Mondays

As if Monday's weren't crazy enough - add rain/snow to a morning commute and you get a recipe for "take me away to paradise please"

I'd settle for a few hours curled up in one of these spaces with a good book!
