My Condo on Apartment Therapy!


Hey Guys! I am just so excited. My condo was featured on Apartment Therapy this weekend. I never really shared pics of the condo because I did a lot of it before I started my blog. But I am so excited that they were shared!

Here are a couple peaks but be sure to see all the pics on Apartment Therapy (link here)!






Thanks to Apartment Therapy for the feature! Hope you all like it!

Design Crush: Marianne Simon


Quick inspiration for you this AM. Marianne Simon Design. Love her muted color pallets (which is a little uncharacteristic of me) but she uses nuetrals in a beautiful way to still give depth to any room. And all of her kitchens are fantastic.

I LOVE this paisley print wallpaper. Gives nice pattern to the bathroom while still keeping it neutral.

Love how gorgeous this living room is. Love how she mixed white with the dark mantle to anchor the room.

Loving: Day Beds in Living Rooms


So I have started thinking about how I want to lay out my living room. It is long and medium in width, and it needs a lot of furniture.






OKL Benches

velvet calypso blue day bed, plum tufted daybed, linen floral printed chaise, blue printed daybed, zebra print long bench

I have been loving the printed zebra number on the bottom…….

Modern Coach House in Lincoln Park


So I was house hunting on Lux Home Tours (and by house hunting I mainly mean drooling) and found this amazing new build “Coach House” smack dab in Lincoln Park Chicago.

OMG. I need to run down to Chicago asap just so I can slowly walk by this mansion in the city and try to climb over that fence, just kidding. But if I brought home made chocolate chip cookies do you think I could get a guided tour??

This room is very masculine, but I still can appreciate the beautiful mixing of materiarls and prints. And that heavy draped window is gorgeous!

I love the added bit of print here in the dinning room – those wingback chairs are perfect for this masculine space!

This sitting room with the fire is heaven. I mean it looks like it just fell out of some boutique hotel and landed in someone’s living room.

Design Crush: James M. Davie Design


I recently found James M Davie Designs on pinterest and I am in heaven! His work is so beautiful. Fun creative, playful, and refined. I love the traditional overtones mixed with the whimsical prints and pattern.


This rug is heaven and just look at that mantle!



Love all the colors in here and the bold color of the chesterfield.


OMG. there are hardly words! I just love how unique this kitchen is!




I really like this floor. I was thinking of a patterned floor of our second bathroom….I wonder if Chris and I could pull off tiling this.

Furniture with Wide Stripe


Not sure if I have mentioned it before – but I love love furniture with a wide stripe. It adds so much interest and makes it unique!






I have been dreaming of good stripe furniture because a couple weeks ago I ordered a settee for my dinning table with a stripe down the middle! Can’t wait for it to come!
