If you haven’t stopped by lately you probably noticed a couple of changes …. Yes again!!

I have decided to go  another route, I will “I will start from scratch ” with a new website .net, and  I will continue to use WordPress as my blog but with a twist or two.

1.  I hope that It will be a more inspiring place to be, not only for you, but for me as well.

2. It will be interactive with added convenience and personalized service for you.

3.  More”Interior Decorating Tips”  and daily posts, [plus] more in the next few months.

And until Then, :)

Have an awesome day!!

Decor Idea Board | Blue Hues

Hello readers!

Trending in colors from summer to fall and into next year, deep blue hues.  I love how the deep blue combo looks with contrasting crisp whites, very nautical perfect for a coastal modern interior space. I put together this decor board a while back and thought I’d share it with you today. Also, I am currently designing a 3D mood board at #Olioboard and will share that with you later this week.  How would you use this color in your home decorating?

Thanks for stopping by!!

Happy Mood Board Monday + OlioHop + Blog Hop

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I had a little weekend stay-cay at West Palm Beach.  Great time with family and hugh bunch of old friends.  Re-focused on what matters most. :) It was relaxing . . . but back to reality . . .

Today we are Olio hopping and talking about organization and de-cluttering!!

I you have read my post recently, you might remember that I have started creating mood boards or as I call them decor idea boards. The site I have been using is called Olioboard and I love how easy it is to create mood boards in 2D and 3D effects.  The look is really great because you can actually visualize how all the furniture pieces and other elements will look together.  A lot of Interior Designers as well as design enthusiasts are using this site to create their boards.  If you would like to to try it for yourself, it’s pretty easy, all you have to do is sign up, that’s it!  Hop on over to their site to get started, and while your there check out on the community tab to see amazing boards, also weekly contest.  Join the fun today!


Home Office Decorating Ideas

This board is more of a high-end  look, but the idea is there to play with. The design style I chose for this board is contemporary with mid-century modern.  The sparkle in the chandelier + lamp  enhances glam look, while the curves in the Z Gallerie “Eddie” wing chair give it a feminine touch. Do you like? Let me know how I can help you with your decorating needs.

Here are a some organizing tips to keep your home office

 TIDY! TIDY! TIDY! including me “muah”

There are so many options when it comes to basic storage solutions, and now more then ever chic and stylish ones. So let’s get started!

Organize areas by:

  1. Writing / computer desk:  Having adequate space can help you keep your space neat and tidy.  Not every home office is created equal.  Some require ample writing and drawing space.  A good average size desk to start with is 35 to 45 inches wide and 25 inches in depth, enough for computer and stationary.
  2. Storage boxes:  I like to use pretty boxes, this is where you can add a touch of your personality. Tip: To keep the room from looking visually cluttered, use no more than three colors throughout the room.
  3. Desk accessories:  This is where your daily stuff stays in order, incoming mail, notes, pencils + pens, etc.
  4. Bulletin Board:  Here is one of my fav, keep your most important must-do notes at eye level. If it’s starring at you, you probably won’t forget!
  5. Trash/Recycling bin: Daily mail can be daunting!  Sort out mail as it comes in, one less thing to think about when cleaning up at end of day.

I will be posting more about organizing throughout this week on my Facebook page, and Pinterest Board and Olioboard. Join in the convo!!

How fun is the color yellow! It not only lifts your mood with its warm hue . . .

. . . it grabs  your attention.

Black and white spaces can seem serious, by adding touches of warm yellow it becomes more inviting.

Love the pillows and throws!

Warming up to yellow yet?  I love it!


New year, new goals

“Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.” – Leonardo da Vinci.

New year, new beginnings and new goals. For me, it’s all about simplifying my life this year. Seems like we or (most) of us are tying to one way or another. Social media (twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Pinterest) has been a great exposure for my business, (grateful for that) but it can be very addictive, …”addictive”and time consuming. So, this year one of my goals is to cut back and concentrate more on building my business. Another is blogging more regularly, but still keeping it simple. Here are some of the categories:

Monday – Mondays Hues
Wednesday – this that
Thursday – eco-living
Then and Now – as project updates.

Well, that’s it for now.
Check back tomorrow for this years first feature.


Decor Ideas | Home Office Update

Hello, I hope you all are having a great day.  At the moment I’m working on several rooms that need an organizational boost and on the top of the list is (yes!) my office, it really needs an update.  This is a small office space so changes will be minimal. My goal is to create a comfortable and visually creative space for me with the emphasis on clutter control (I need mental clarity). Lighting is very important in an office space so, this will be the starting point to my idea decor board. I would like to incorporate one of these working table lamps (pics below) from IKEA.  A lot of work still ahead so, off I go web sourcing for products. I love shopping! I’ll keep you posted on my progress. :)

NYFORS Work Lamp $49.00 Ikea

Barometer Work Lamp Ikea $49.99

TIVED Work Lamp $29.99

I love this office space designed by Courtney Hill Interiors.  The beachy color palette she selected here of blues and ivories are very calming which is perfect for hours of work-time. And the nail-head trim, glass knobs gives this space a touch of elegance.
