Beautiful Distractions No. 12

Last week I was a #TRADspotter and toured The MART with Luxe Home Chicago and Traditional Home magazine. What a complete treat for the eyes! If you missed my Instagram Stories, I saved them as a highlight in my profile. There was “one new to me” company that I was completely wowed by. Maya Romanoff’s wallcoverings are out of this world. Beautiful wood veneers, bedazzled glass beads, woven material, mother of pearl, woven wool fabric…it’s texture heaven. Mind. Blown. They’re out of Skokie, IL, not too far from my home, and I’m working on a factory tour to give you a closer look.

I Fed The Troll

The other day I fed an internet troll. Normally I would delete the comment and move on, but that particular morning I was feeling frisky and let that troll’s voice be heard. I mean, she did have a point although her delivery needed a bit of work. I posted this photo with the caption of, “I woke up, got some coffee and decide this room needs to change. Ever want to burn it all and start over? #pleasetellmeimnottheonlyone”.

Finding Your Style Using A Visual Mood Board

People ask time and time again to describe my style. Gaahhhhhhh, really? I have absolutely no idea where to begin. I mean when I see it I know it? Does that count? A little old. A little new. A little quirky. Sometimes pink. All things French. They look at me with a blank stare. Sorry, I got nothin’ else for ya.

12 Chapters. 365 Stories.

The first week of January 2019 is gone, and my brain is swimming with ideas and reflecting back on last year. I don’t like making resolutions because failure ensues in 47 days or less. Rather, I chose a word or theme to focus on. Last year was “learn and grow”. A year of figuring out what I liked and didn’t like. Sound easy, but in actuality, it was a bit of trial and error.

Beautiful Distractions No. 11

The weather has turned unseasonably cold in Chicago (a foot of snow last Sunday night), so I’ve been staying warm by the fireplace…perusing Pinterest and flipping through magazines. My two favorite pastimes that don’t happen as often as I’d like. Today I’m sharing some of my Beautiful Distractions, and I’m especially going gaga over my friend Josh Young’s holiday home tour over on Domino. His space is jaw-dropping, and his ornament collection is off the hook.
