BOLD CONTEMPORARY ECLECTIC LIVING ROOM

BOLD LIVING ROOM MAKEOVER


A year ago I was trying to decide what kind of space it was that I really wanted.

While that is certainly beautiful, and maybe  what a high-strung, meditation-deprived person like myself needs, I decided what I really wanted was a…

REHOMING THIS SOCIETY6 TAPESTRY BY ARTIST CHAD WYS


Chad Wys is one of my FAVORITE artists. I love the way he takes traditional historical images and splashes on a bit of colorful “idgaf”.

MY REGENCY INSPIRED BEDROOM
