Get the Eco-Friendly Look: Deck out your Dorm Room!

The Dorm Days are back… and this year back-to-school shopping is different for college students. They will need more than just a binder, pens and a new wardrobe to kick off the year. That empty dorm room is awaiting a total makeover. They’ll need furniture, bedding, lighting, desk accessories and storage. For a more personalized look they are also going to need lots of color, art and patterns.

Hence why I curated these fabulous green finds that can transform any boxy, boring dorm room into a cozy, stylish and trendy pad.

Sept 11th- Remembering our heroes and loved ones.

Today is the day to remember and honor our family, loved ones, and heroes who put their life on the line and lost on one of the most devastating days in America’s history. Even though some time has past, it will not and can not erase the memory of that horrendous day. I find peace and comfort in visiting the amazing memorial we have to honor all our heroes and victims and hope it brings you all the same comfort as it does for myself. 

My thoughts and prayers go out to all those touched by this horrendous act and I know I will never forget and be sure to keep all their memories alive.

Eco-Friendly DIY: White Wonderland…

image

With a house full of kids, my clients wanted to take advantage of the one room they can completely white out… the master bedroom. So I quickly pulled together this whimsical white wonderland for them to enjoy after all the little ones have went to bed. It’s the perfect blend of white with just the right hint of neutrals to give them a soothing retreat they so sorely need after a long day with the kids.

My e-spiration: Wandering through the Whitney with Koons…

It’s been a while since I went wandering through the Whitney museum… so last week- that’s exactly what I did! The Jeff Koons exhibit invigorated me and helped to get the design ball rolling on the slew of new projects I’ll be working on. 

Talk about show stopping sculptures- that’s what Koons is all about. It’s a marvelous modern mix of colorful and over sized madness! Here’s my favorite pieces… talk about vibrant color overload- I loved it!!

This market is massive and I took advantage of spending the whole day there on Tuesday to cover it all. This expo couldn’t have come at a better time since I’m on the hunt for lots of products I need for some fun upcoming client projects… and maybe a few extras for myself too!

I was delightfully overwhelmed with the amazing amounts of texture throughout the expo…. so tantalizing!
