all the rage: wallpaper

I am all over wallpaper this week. It includes a vision for my closet... stay tuned for the revealing. A few companies now make removable wallpaper which is so handy and basically eliminates all the reasons that people used to hate it (messy and impossible to take down).

This is the print by Tempaper that I plan to use in my closet as a backdrop for all of my neutral shoes...

Tempaper makes a bunch of other cool prints like this one:

mixology: bold accent walls

If you have a case of the living room blues, a bold accent wall is a sure cure. I am very into bright colors right now as well as dark walls with white contrasts. 

Happy decorating Mia!

rehab: gold console table

This little nugget is my friend Lindsey's masterpiece. She spotted it at a garage sale and based on the original color and not-so-pretty appearance, her first impression was ICK! But it only took a few cans of metallic spray paint and one tired finger... and ta-da!

mixology: gray and red

Red is a tricky color; it usually looks too traditional for my taste. But pairing it with gray gives it a fresh, modern feel! Take a gander at these inspiration rooms...
