Just wanted to thank my followers for making the first two months of this blog such a success! You’re all terrific.

Now, announcement… I will also be starting a regular blog soon - probably just after the New Year - as a supplement to this one, with more in-depth articles, pictures, etc., plus reviving my design and decorating service business. Yaaaay. :)

So, my dear followers, maybe you can help out and give me a little jump start… I’d like to see if anyone has any suggestions for any articles they would be interested in seeing on my new blog. Particular style of interior design (i.e. Craftsman, Contemporary, Shabby Chic, etc)? Maybe a compilation of rooms (i.e. bedrooms, bathrooms, luxury kitchens, etc)?

If anyone has any ideas, I’d love to hear from you! (and hopefully my Tumblr mail is fixed by now!) ♥

A great job of interior decorating.. the chairs, whose upholstery coordinates with the flowers in the vase, flank and accent the large arched window.

This sweet, vintage-style black and white bathroom was created from a former closet space. Charming details include the honeycomb mosaic tile floor, genuine vintage porcelain pedestal sink, ruffled shower curtain, and mirror with mother-of-pearl inlay on the frame.
