I was browsing Houzz the other day and I came across this FABULOUS reno, that seriously took my breath away.  The renovation was done by dSPACE Studio in Chicago and let me tell you, the attention to detail, the cohesiveness of the design is top notch.  It's truly a job well done.  Enjoy!

 Isn't this ceiling treatment to die for?

3 Dollars to Pretty

January 22, 2012
Last year I bought an acrylic tray from Walmart for 88 cents during their summer clearance sale and even it looked okay I knew that I wanted to dress it up at bit since I wouldn't be using it in the kitchen.  Last week I was browsing the blogs and I came across a killer idea from Chelsea from two twenty one and I couldn't wait to try it.

I downloaded the background from Sprik Space, she is very generous with freebies, make sure you head over and check out her blog.  I then edited the background in Picnik (Google has decided to shut down adding my initial within a circle.  I created two tray liners and printed them at Office Depot for $2, cut them and Voila!!!


Aren't they purty?

Should I & Shouldn't I

January 19, 2012

You would have to be under a rock to not realize that chevron pattern is now mainstream and is everywhere.  I know a lot of people are sick of chevron but it's been around forever and it's so high impact that it always makes a statement.  I'm still in love with it, especially in tile work and I did a post here on bathroom inspiration and I loved the chevron tiles that were in the Tile Shop.

Target has jumped on the bandwagon and have produced a line of home decor items with chevron.  I was walking in the aisles of Tar-gay and I saw a gold chevron lampshade and of course I snatched it up.  I've been searching for a lamp shade to add to some solid brass lamps I picked up from goodwill.

Now that I have them home, I'm still smarting from the price tag of $20 a piece.  Yup I'm cheap frugal like that.
I haven't really unwrapped it because I'm still on the fence, so what do you think?
Should I or shouldn't I keep it?

Luxe for Less - Labels

January 17, 2012
I love a good looking label and since I'm not a Photoshop user, it's very time consuming way to create nice ones in a regular word processing program.  I did create ones for the my daughter's sweet sixteen here, but they took some time.   Well here comes Martha Stewart to the rescue, she's teamed up with Avery labels and have created a label line.  The line is now available through Staples. Aren't they lovely?

Luxe for Less - January Sales

January 15, 2012
I love a sale and January is a great time to look for home decor sales.  In January, not only do you get the post Christmas sales, you also get the furniture closeout deals as the stores make way for new models.  I've seen so many deals on the web so I thought that I'll share some of my favorites.  Some of these items have been heavily discounted so if you like anything, grab it as I'm sure they won't last long.
