From Closet to Laundry Room…

Hi All!

I have lined up an inspirational post for you today – I’m talking about loads of laundry inspo! How can anything to do with laundry be an inspiration, you may ask? Well, if you have a home that doesn’t allow for an oversized kitted out mudroom and laundry space, or if you are tired of looking at yet another appliance, then this post may be just the inspiration you need!

Color Crush: Blush

Feeling all kinds of Blush for this months’ Color Crush post. There is something so versatile about this shade of pink – it can freshen up a space for Spring or warm up a room in the wintertime. Pair it with creams and fair grays for a soft and feminine look, or let it be the shade to tone down bold reds and moody blues. And yes, blush can be sparingly paired with red! My color story is showing this pretty shade in all forms – from pretty pillows to durable fabrics (kid friendly-pet friendly always on my mind) and bold chairs to sweet votives. Get ready to blush!

Design meets Fashion

Hi All,

Interior designers are constantly drawing inspiration from all aspects of life and our surroundings – from architecture, global trends or even by a walk through our own city streets. Design inspiration is all around us and the sources are endless. One of the biggest sources being the fashion design world. Both interior design and fashion design tend to follow the same trends, prints, colors and texture from season to season. I thought it would be fun to share with you just how those worlds merge by drawing a little bit of inspiration from my very own portfolio.

Making an Entrance with your Entry

Hi All!

‘Tis the season where we open our doors to holiday visitors. It could be our neighbors or guests from out of town, kids home from college or an entire family reunion. Whatever the occasion may be – a Christmas Eve party or a simple family brunch – our front door tends to welcome a lot more guests this time of year. There is nothing like a friendly face to greet a guest, but why not leave a lasting impression when inviting them in. Let’s talk about giving your entry an added touch of love to create that lasting impression. Your entry, after all, is the introduction to the rest of your home. Let me just add, “a touch of love” does not require a home remodel! Here are some fun ideas for inspiration on how to welcome up your welcome.

Thankful Entertaining with Michelle

Hi All!

It’s almost Happy Thanksgiving time! First and foremost, let’s ask ourselves a question. Do we really need a day to remind ourselves to be thankful and grateful? For me, every day is a gift of which I am so thankful for… the only thing missing is pumpkin spice everything! This is, however, one of my most favorite holidays. It is a time for entertaining! I love creating an inviting (and stylish) space to bring friends and family together. It’s all about warmth, comfort and a pumpkin here and there. This is what I have my eye on this Thanksgiving…
