An age-old rule in the interior design world is to always place something black in a room. Well I say, “Let it be red.” Please? After all, it’s my favorite color. Here are three red design items from CB2 that I’m loving for Fall.
Why is it that we tend to put ourselves last? In my case it’s because I’m so busy designing other people’s homes that I run out of time for my own. Then, of course, there’s my family life, which always comes first before anything. So, I’m really thrilled that after a couple of years I’ve finally begun to work on my own living room.
I’m a little off topic today, but I had to share these awesome, handmade headbands now available at Etsy’s SockTales shop (love that name).
Well, it seems I’ve been on vacation and forgot to write a post to let you know. But guess what? I’m still at the beach! Yay! Now that it’s just us three, I’ll have more time to write. I’ve got a few things up my sleeve. But I had to finish the jigsaw puzzle first. See you in a few days. Have a great weekend!

Have you ever noticed a woman wearing a beautiful dress only to notice that her shoes are the wrong color, a belt would have added a lot of zip, and that she forgot the jewelry? I think in the same way when I walk into a home. The furniture is beautiful, but where is the jewelry? You might think that art and accessories are the least important part of decorating a home. “Those things are so small. Who’s gonna notice?” And hey, after spending all that money on the furniture it may seem that spending even more on accessories really isn’t that necessary. Or, it will get done later. Much later.
I’ve been writing about my husband’s idea of planting an alle of trees on the side of our home. It began as a sad walk edged on either side by patches of stones which had begun to look like litter boxes with weeds. After three years, his plan is looking lovely.
