Loving floral in particular…
I”m on visit number two to Sandy Toes. The condo upgrades/decor are very much in progress and I’m so pleased with the results. This is the kitchen so far. Light and bright.
My next visit will be painting the cabinets white and hopefully finding some wall decor for below, but no ideas are coming yet. If you have any, let me know!
I’ve also been struggling with a color scheme for the sala (living room) sticking basically with white/cream/gray/black for the furniture.
And then I saw her.
Accent colors have been solved. Now the search for pillows is on.
If I had to choose only one home decor blog to follow, planete-deco.fr is it. It’s a French site and I don’t understand any of the verbage, but pictures are worth a thousand words.
I’m so excited that I will have a place near the beach again! This condo (or depa in Spanish) is a work in progress, but I think I’m doing pretty good so far. Construction wise, I knocked out a wall making it a 2 bedroom instead of 3. Air conditioning, ceiling fans, propane gas, internet, all checked off.
Now for the fun stuff. In place of a kitchen table and chairs, I added the marble tile bar which I’m loving so much. And the bathroom tile that I was nervous about, came out perfect.
The end tables are from Home Depot and work perfect for me. The macrame stool can be used both as a sofa table or seat. Stuck on what to do with the far corner. It needs something tall for sure.
Bar stools also from Home Depot. There was a big gap between the kitchen cabinet and refrigerator, so I bought the wood shelf from a guy on the street, and added the marble tile to the top. It’s okay for me…at least for now. Open shelving will be happening soon.
So happy with how this looks.
I can’t wait to return next month! Adios depa!
and it’s called WABI SABI

My house is always a work in progress with a budget involved. I have quite a few barren walls and the pictures I have are no longer to my liking. So here’s what I did.
This picture was of a “Italian” style rose. The house I live in now is modern. There’s no room here for my “Tuscan” themed items. I took the picture inside the frame and flipped it over to it’s plain white backside and made some of my own art. Now I don’t even mind the gold frame.
The picture below was a canvas illustration of a woman drinking coffee. I painted it with chalkboard paint and added the text. It’s now hanging in our gym.
Found a this picture in an art book. It’s now getting ready to be hung in our bathroom.
Lastly, another picture from a yoga manual I have. This one will be going in the gym too…or maybe in the hall. Still deciding.
Other options are momento’s, passages from books, photographs enlarged, the ideas are endless. The moral of the post: Don’t throw away the ugly framed art, it can be something else.
NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee is the perfect soft gloss pale pink.
I’m probably late to the party on this one, but a foundation brush makes all the difference….especially for those of us that are make up challenged. BTW: It Cosmetics are awesome and PETA approved.
I’m just going to say it works.
