Living Room, The Art of the Mix

Welcome to my new site!

Hey all!! Notice anything new! How about my fancy new .com! How about that, ayyyy? I decided to step into the professional world and become legit with my own domain! WE FANCY, HUH. I am still working on adding pages. I coded this site myself so I am still working out a few kinks here and there to the code. What better way to launch the new look than with…

Shayne Blue Inspiration

Can we talk about Shayne Blue. I think I have a new design soul sister. Hahah. I mean, I love eclectic spaces like these. When I picture my ideal dream home, it’s full of random things (you know I love that MIX). That’s why I love Kelly Wearstler so much. So much visual stimulation. Ohhh ahhh. I recommend you check out her site and see lovely rooms full of unique…

Garage Makeover: Finishing Up the Space

It’s always been my belief that if your home is beautiful, in one way or another your life will be too. What’s that Martha Stewart quote on my About page? “Your home should be a reflection of how you want to live right now and for the next phase of your life.” I briefly blogged (like seriously glazed over) my 2 year depression since 2015 when I found out I…

Staging to sell: the living room

I admit I have not staged a house before but hey there’s a first time for everything! I don’t really see what the difference is from styling. Just use less stuff. What I do know is, you want to show off your home’s true potential… make it look good so buyers can see themselves living there. The first time my client listed her home, her realtor took some pretty crappy…

One room, three ways

I mentioned I was helping someone decorate her space? Well, my client has downsized from a 1900s two-story to a 1950s one-story rancher. She has worlds of beautiful french antiques but so many of them are so big and out of character for her new digs. But we love them and we have to make them work in the new space!! You can’t get rid of French antiques! She has…

My Dream Dressing Room

Don’t you wish our homes still had separate hers and his dressing rooms? I’m content to dress myself  without the help of a ladies’ maid (I wonder if Jim would like a valet?) but the idea of your own little oasis, surrounded by luxurious fabrics and all your lovely possessions sounds nice, doesn’t it? Maybe only to fashionistas and clothes horses but as someone with a growing collection of dresses…

Inspiration

I am so bad about logging where I save photos from (I don’t do Pinterest) so if you know the sources of any of these, do tell! I’ve been thinking about dining room plans but until then, here’s some pretty pictures to inspire you. When I saw this living room, with the tuxedo sofa and the round mirrors I knew my living room plans were rice krispies (I heard a…

What’s That About Temporary Wallpaper?

Everywhere I look I see wallpaper making a big splash, with removable wallpaper being a major player. Genevieve Gorder has a line for Tempaper. Chasing Paper, a brand I found in a google search, has popped up on Emily Henderson and on the Today Show with Architectural Digest. Wallpaper in one shape or form will always be with us. Here are 18 removable papers I fancied and hope you do too…

Imagining My Next Space: the Bedroom

I’ve got another Art of the Mix for you! We’re still residing in the little garage apartment, which I wrote about here. It has me lusting after rentals and dreaming up my own room plans and decor ideas. So much so I decided to design a bedroom that might work in an apartment with the living room I recently laid out here. I keep looking at the living room, getting lost…
