Dining in the ROUND

My first dining table was round, and I loved it!  Even though I graduated to a larger rectangle table, I still have a soft spot for a quality round one.  It is also easier to fit in smaller spaces, like for renters or frequent movers.  I also wanted to showcase in this post how fun an upholstered dining chair can look in your space.  I wanted to go with just a little color POP in each room - the first one being cobalt and yellow and the second being a pale rose.  What do you think?  Can you picture your dinners in these fab rooms?

Happy Camper

Now that we live in AZ, we go camping a bunch.  For one it is so nice to drive up north to cooler weather, but more so that camping in Arizona is just so easy and so gorgeous!  Just the other day we drove up to Payson with zero plans, and ended up camping in a free spot with a breathtaking view of the Mogollon Rim (see link below for our home video). Can't get better than that! Well.... if I had some cool outdoorsy clothing, maybe it could...

My repeat camping outfit consists of Lululemon pants and some Diamond Supply gear I got while working in LA.  I'd say it's time to up the wardrobe for my AZ life.  I recommend comfy layers, quality socks and hiking boots, and don't forget the bug spray and body wipes ;)

This is what my boyfriend thinks I should really wear... the bug fears are real y'all! Haha.

Chase the Rainbow

Iridescent, oil slick, or just my obsession... I can't get enough, and my inner 13 year old thanks me for it! The rainbows really lift my spirits! I have a bunch of the items below, and you can guarantee that curling iron is on my Christmas list. I love this 90s revival that has managed to stick around for a while, but being a Realtor and a rather classic dresser, I like to incorporate trends and more fun in my accessories and home as much as possible. I also find that this look goes with a lot - really versatile and matches everything.

Let's get on this mermaid train together, shall we?

Bedroom Balance

I truly believe one can wake up on the wrong side of the bed! Even though I am horrible at taking my own advice, I think one's bedroom should be awesome, comfy, clean (this is where I fail), and well balanced...or zen if you will. If you make the bedroom your favorite room, I think a good night's rest and a happy morning is in your future!

Here's a little easy recipe for balance, style, and comfort: Grand bed, matching night stands and table lamps, soft rug, fab throw pillows, and a cushioned bench.

Disclaimer: this post is pricey. Will try and be more affordable next time =)

Wedding Colors - Part 2

A little Fall inspo and 2 classic combos.  I like the navy/white combo as a light nod to nautical with a trendy flare, and you can never go wrong with classic black, white and grey!

Wedding Colors - Part 1

I am that girl. I LOVE Pinterest and wedding planning for my imaginary wedding! Ok, not totally imaginary, but I am a couple of years away...hopefully ;) Also, from what I have heard, it might be good to know what you want before getting engaged as wedding planning can be pretty hectic! I have no idea if I'd want it in the summer or fall, neutral or colorful scheme, traditional or country, this is my vision boarding for different color options - SUMMER Edition.

Get with the GREY

All the newly renovated homes are jumping on the GREY bandwagon. If you feel like getting with this cool tone, I've got some great ideas for you! Flooring is one of the biggest changes people are making, and when you can't do a dark wood in AZ, why not try a grey laminate - easy to install and easy to clean! If you can't make any huge changes, Restoration Hardware has some beautiful grey fabric choices on many incredible sofas, or splurge on a silk and wool rug from ABC Home (my favorite place for rugs!).  My two favorites though are the grey and white marble wallpaper and the backsplash.  This tile would be gorgeous in a kitchen or a bath, and it's from your local Home Depot. Are you feeling the grey?

Stylishly Scottsdale

Here's my take on a Scottsdale inspired room. I gave it a muted palette with an elegant feel.  I love the mixing of modern and rustic elements in this room.  The navajo rug inspired it all!

Takin' it easy in AZ

My reign in LA is quickly coming to an end, and I will be venturing on to another sunny desert land of cheaper rent and less traffic. Scottsdale! Although I will dearly miss my friends in LA, I am thrilled for this next chapter in my life.  And this chapter is starting with a house...and a legit backyard.  Seriously, it is such a big blank slate of a backyard, that I have zero clue at the moment how to decorate it.  Let's start with what I DO know....the inside...
