Inspirational Ideas for Breakfast Nook

June 8, 2019

Hey everyone! I have been wanting to post but have been super busy lately with client color/decorating consultations and planning our new home! We have so many decisions that have to be made, interior and exterior. Everything from interior doors, stone on the outside, pantry room, lighting, facets, tile, countertops, hardwood flooring, appliances, and so much more. Fun and exciting but stressful too!

One of my dream requests for the new house, is that I would love a sunny, bright breakfast area. A place to enjoy sitting in the morning and during the day. So that is what I am working on right now, (although the contractor thinks I am planning where to put light switches! haha

On our house plans,  the breakfast nook area is 13’ x 10’. It is part of the kitchen with windows all around. I haven’t decided for sure if I am putting in a bench along the window:

Strike that last thought- I would love a bench against the back window!

We decided against having a dining room because it just would not get used very often so why take up the space. We are more kitchen hang-out people.

Here is another great idea- how about wall papering the inside between the windows? How pretty it looks:

Thanks everyone! Until next time. I hope you have a wonderful, sunny weekend!

Easy Decorating With Trays

May 4, 2019

Trays are my top accessory to grab when I am putting together an arrangement or centerpiece. Service trays are so versatile and can add both function and décor to any room. There is always a table top, kitchen counter or cocktail table that needs a tray to help make a table look more put together than if a few items had been placed randomly across the table:

So easy to put together:

I usually like to start with a tray, add a few books, a flower for height and something special to me:

If you are looking to change up the look of a room or just to update for the season, new art is a great way to begin your color palette. Using the artwork above as an example, you can bring in so much color with a blue and white area rug and bright happy pillows and throws in raspberry, plum and gold.

I also found on their site A-line dresses which I love for summer:

When decorating a room, I am all about the symmetry. Things in order, perfectly spaced, uniform, balanced  and in harmony:

February 2, 2019

Everyone has their own opinion of what is hot and what is not in home decorating.  Some designers say one thing, (for example, accent walls are in) and another will say the trend is on it’s way out. So I have gathered together a list of popular trends for 2019 I have seen around the decorating world and are loving. You be the judge.
