Emerald Green was Panetone’s 2013 Color of the Year, and I tell you what, I’m STILL loving it! With spring and St. Patty’s Day just around the corner, here are a few of my favorite green interiors:

A lot of times people will ask me for advice on what to put on their coffee table. Let’s look at inspiration photos, and then get to work!

Most of these pictures have similar design elements. Here is my go-to combination for a great looking coffee table:

Untitled presentation (6)

1. Tray with a pop of color. Try T.J. Maxx or Home Goods, or you can grab that sweet orange number at JCP.

2. Stack of coffee table books (or any kind of books). Just make sure they have interesting titles and graphics.

3. Interesting object. Ceramic sheep? Pair of antlers? Vintage camera? Or just order the gold giraffe.

4. Pretty candle. Nuff said. You can buy one here.

5. Something live. Indoor plants usually cry for their mothers when they see me coming. Fortunately, succulents love to be practically ignored.

 

Feeling inspired? Get to it, and let me know how it goes!

A few weeks ago I staged an adorable home in the quaint Ravenna neighborhood of Seattle. The owners of the home had loved it dearly, but needed to find a bigger space for their growing family. The house was full of charming details, my favorite being the floor to ceiling built-in bookshelves in the living room.  I always strive to fill my staging homes with just enough furniture and accessories to give people a vision for the space, without becoming a visual distraction. I think in this case we provided just enough “stuff”, but take a look and judge for yourself!

I rarely go “ga-ga” over celebrities, but celebrity homes are an entirely different story!  Check out a few of my favs:

Hi folks!

I’ve been working on quite a few remodels lately, and one of my favorite details in in the kitchen and bathroom is the back splash.  It’s a wonderful opportunity to add color, texture, and personality to your space. Here are a few images for some back splash inspiration!

This Moroccan style tile adds a lot of interest, without being overwhelming.

  

think I just found the perfect backsplash. I have this exact paneling in my livingroom and it has held up beautifully. Its cheap and easy to take care of. I think this would have looked better w/o the wine bottles too.

Wood paneling is both inexpensive and beautiful!

  

Blue-and-white backsplash tiles are timeless and classic. More tile backsplash ideas: http://www.bhg.com/kitchen/backsplash/behind-the-range-tile-backsplash/?socsrc=bhgpin071113blueandwhite=15

Subway tile is a classic choice for the backsplash; however, a herringbone pattern behind the range puts an unexpected twist on the look.

Above the cooktop is a lovely spot to add some detail. It doesn’t have to be anything crazy, simply changing the direction of your tile can make a huge difference.

  

Really want these tiles for a backsplash and those ceramic tiles that look like wood floors for my bathroom.

Sometimes, less is more.

But most of the time, MORE is more.

The best advice I can give, is that whatever you chose to do, take that tile up as high as you can go. No more 4″ high back splashes, please.  Tile all the way up to the bottom of your cabinets. And if your cabinets don’t reach the ceiling, tile up there as well!

Isn’t that gorgeous??
