Reading spot...

Feeling a bit under the weather today... too many plans can make you tired I think.  
This would be the perfect place to take a few hours and leisurely read with a big cup of tea.

Wishing you a restful Saturday!

Masculine & transitional...

A little inspiration for a Friday.  This is an inspiration board from my presentation this week.  I fell for the easy semi masculine feel of this one.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend and thanks for sharing a little bit of your day with me here, it is so nice to be able to share my work and ideas with everyone.

A little of this..

Hello there, sorry for my absence yesterday... how quickly the days seem to pass.  Another busy week is almost ready to be put to rest and I am definitely dreaming of the weekend.  This weekend will be just us girls relaxing here at home, my daughter and me.  I am excited to take a little break from work and spend some time getting the house in order.  
We start our final round on the kitchen renovation next week and I am excited and anxious about it.  There are still many choices to be made, that is how it is works around here.  I did speak with my furniture maker yesterday though and we are going to put a contrasting color in the new piece that will hold all of my everyday dishes, now someone needs to pick that color please!
I have pulled a bunch of greys, and greiges to start with.  I will be sure to keep you up to date on all of the selections.  
 I am also working with the wonderful Shari from Little Blue Deer on a makeover for the blog, it will be fun to have a fresh new look around here don't you think?

Also, a little bit of a delayed THANK YOU to Leaf Magazine for including some pieces from the shop in their current issue!

Ahh,  a few little snaps from my final install of last week.  It was nice to put the major part of the work behind me.  There are always little changes to be made and switch outs that need to happen as with all installs.  It seems that inevitably there is something that arrives broken, in the wrong color or just does not arrive at all, and you have to be able to make the decision on a moments notice as to whether making a switch will change your vision for the project or if it will make it even better. 
There is nothing relaxing or easy about the install days, it is a bunch of work with the greatest of rewards- a finished project!

Good Food Center Street Anaheim

Yesterday morning we went to the small flea market in downtown Anaheim, there was not much for me at the flea market but I fell in love with the new shops in the area.  This little cafeteria style restaurant was one of the best local designs I have seen lately.  LOVED the doors and windows along with the tile detailing and furnishings.  A great concept and very well done.  There are 3 eateries in the space and then there is communal seating inside and out.   

It is a little hard to tell from the photos but the front of the building is curved which I love loved.

Need to make some of these for outside at our house!

Whimsical bath

I love the whimsical feel in this bath.  The sink put me over the edge.  I think that little bit of softness makes this room feel so great.  Wishing you a wonderful Saturday!  Is it really fall?  I am not so sure here in California it is 90 today.

Theme Inspiration: Gothic Decoration!

Gothic decoration is unique and packs a lot of impact! If you love trying edgy and a bit of drama in your decor, this surely is worth consideration. There are so many interpretation, from architecture to color schemes, unique features and a sense of mystery. This is my interpretation of this stunning theme decor.

Surely Halloween has put me in the mood to explore Gothic too, but my understanding is very limited. Enjoy these unusual delights!

The pointed arch is one of the most important characteristic of Gothic architecture. The canopy bed and the spartan bedroom in black and white is surely evocative!

Amazed by this installation. Every day objects come together on shelves to create this interesting skull design!

Black and amethyst are a good combination for Gothic decor. A stylish decor, with just the perfect dose of romance and mystery. Candles and candlesticks are perfect choice for accessory.

Gorgeous decor here. The matte black is an amazing backdrop and the hint of purple is the perfect color for this modern Gothic decor. Love the ledge and b&w pictures!

A good idea for makeover! Find an interesting bureau and paint it black (surface damage no problem!) use a decal or simply trace a Goth design and paint it metallic.

Add a new twist, how about glow in the dark!

Wood is a good choice when looking at Gothic features. Make it a little more interesting, add mosaic mirror to the staircase. Its eerie and creative at the same time :o)

Purple and black is popular color combination. This Christmas decor is so unique as its part Gothic with so many elements of Gothic decoration. Very enticing!

Gothic is not just black and ornate, it is stunning and stylish! The simple addition of pointed arc glass accent adds a subtle touch of Gothic. So chic and elegant.

This might not be the perfect Goth decor, but its black and teal walls are so visually striking! The ornate fireplace and black furniture add to the mysterious appeal!

Cute black bird for Halloween and Gothic decor. An easy craft, bunch of black craft paper and some time is all you need. Adorable!

And as always, add a touch of this interesting decor to your life! what an idea, the whole setup is so funky and dramatic. Imagine a holiday red punch for Halloween maybe?! ;)
