I am on the hunt for a machine washable area rug runner for my newly renovated open kitchen/living/dining/everything room. The floor guy is coming today to put the final clear coat on the floor which means tomorrow I can bring in the dining room table! You can’t grasp how monumental this is until you understand that...

Yes, my family is spending the summer in Las Vegas.  It’s a long story, but the short version is it’s freakin hot here.  Slightly longer version is that my handsome husband came home one day and said ‘we should buy a condo in Las Vegas’ to which I replied ‘do you have a girlfriend there or something?’  The idea of it...

AHHH Pareeee;) This photo was shot by Peter Medilek.  We recently did a photo shoot of my condo at Veer Towers. I’m attempting to figure out how to blog from my phone, it might be a bumpy ride;)

These prints from the Artwork Factory popped up on Gilt again.  I love them, funny, irreverent sayings beautifully printed with interesting backgrounds.  This one looks vintage, but the saying is so not.  Might get this for Ethan’s room, makes me giggle. I used a couple of these in the foyer here mixed with vintage...

I had no clue what to do with the silhouettes artist Karl Johnson did of my daughter, Scarlett and my dog, Maverick.  ‘What are you going to do with those?  Where are you going to put that?’  Hubby says when I bring home my latest treasure.  The answer is ‘I don’t know.  Mind your own beeswax!’ They ended up as...

It’s beautiful. I am a self proclaimed bar cart addict.  There is no 12 step program for this particular type of addiction yet I continue to hold out hope;).  This Ken Fulk’s bar cart from Pottery Barn is a STUNNER.  I love everything about it, everything.  Let’s delve, shall we?   The Big Beautiful Wheels!  This baby...
