A couple of months ago I shared a photo of my new home office. Slowly but surely I’ve made some updates and while it’s not quite “finished” yet, I’m happy that it’s starting to take shape and no longer looks like an empty box. Here’s what it’s looking like currently:
While most things were carried over from my old office. I did bring in some new art, pillows, accessories and since this office is a bit smaller, a new rug. Also brought in the black ribbon edged curtains from our old bedroom – I love them in here!
Not sure yet if I want to add something in the corner, next to the Expedit. In the old office, I had bookcases on either side. They are now being used for closet organization.
The main wall is still pretty bare. I used the frames that I used to have in my old office, for a gallery wall around the TV in our new living room (photo of that coming soon), so I need to shop for some new ones. I haven’t decided yet though if I want to do a mix or all one color.
Be sure to follow along here or on Instagram for future updates! I’ll probably share our living room progress next.
Today I’m sharing with you a couple of favorites from the portfolio of the Dallas based decorating firm, The Interior Stylist. Owner Brooke Cariker Inabnett, creates sophisticated spaces with an emphasis on clean lines layered with modern, personalized touches.

I first become familiar with Jillian Harris via the addicting HGTV show Love It or List It, but I really fell in love with her aesthetic via her regular posts on instagram and her blog. I was so excited to see a tour of her Kelowna home. Here’s a look:
Our Leopard Linen pillow in her beautiful living room!
Chandeliers glam up the white kitchen.
Perfect spot for a morning cup of coffee.

In my latest contributor post for La Dolce Vita, I talked about how much I love luxury candles. I mentioned that a bonus is that they often come in beautiful jars, so once you burn them up and finish enjoying their wonderful scents, you can repurpose the jars and use them to store various items. Below are five ideas:
1. Makeup brushes and beauty tools:
2. Q-tips and cottons:

3. Fresh flowers:
4. Office supplies – including pens, pencils, scissors, and paper clips:

5. Small plants – something I hadn’t thought of until I came across these images:

Hey guys! Sorry I’ve been MIA here lately. Have been really busy working hard behind the scenes on setting up a foundation for the shop to grow to the next level.
I wanted to share with you photos from a fun home tour shoot we did late last year, just before we moved out of our Los Angeles condo. The shoot was for the stylish pet friendly living website Pretty Fluffy and features my furry lovable companion, Little Foot. Photos were taken by the sweet and talented photographer Alicia Rius of Frame Your Pet.
This was a one-bedroom condo we had purchased back in 2008 and lived in for a few years, then decided to rent out for awhile (during which time we lived in this home), then moved back in for a couple of months before selling it so we could move closer to family and get something with more office space.

One of my favorite things about the space was that it was light and bright. I loved the fresh paint color which we carried throughout the kitchen, dining space and living room.
This spot near the window in the dining space is where Little Foot always loved to sit in the morning to catch some sunlight.
We kept Little Foot’s toys stored in a stylish magazine holder, which made it easy to move from space to space and keep them out of sight when not in use.
This was my office space, a corner of the living room. Small, but functional.
I loved having these two tall bookcases flanking the fireplace. They added height to the space and provided great storage for our books and my collection of magazines.
Little Foot’s second favorite spot to hang out was right on top of the sofa. I think he liked it because it gave him a view of outside and allowed him to watch over the home, like a king.
In our bedroom we went bold with dark blue paint on the walls, and dressed up the bed with Arianna Belle pillows, of course!

Like the trays I featured in my last post, baskets are another one of those products that are very versatile and multifunctional. Use them in all rooms in your home as stylish storage for a number of things that uncontained, would otherwise make a space look cluttered. Use them in the living room to hold magazines, newspapers, extra throws, and firewood. In the family room, use them to hide pet and kids toys. In the entry, use them for shoes, slippers, and things that need to go out the door. In the bathroom, baskets work great for holding extra toilet paper and towels (roll them for that luxurious hotel look). In the bedroom, use them to hold books and extra pillows. In the linen closet, use baskets to hold items that are difficult to fold neatly like wash cloths and fitted sheets.
Below are my finds of baskets which are not only practical, but also stylish enough to integrate into your decor:
1- water hyacinth woven basket, 2- seagrass wicker basket, 3- navy basket, 4- brass basket, 5- white morrocan wedding basket, 6- black lace basket, 7- round belly basket, 8- grey wool basket, 9- blue striped basket, 10- patterned blue basket, 11- whitewash woven storage bin, 12- woven seagrass basket with leather
