Fire It Up!!

We don’t have a tremendous need for fireplaces in Houston but this latest cold snap got me thinking about them. Not to mention, I have been smelling neighboring fireplaces all night tonight. Love that smell. You can do A LOT with your fireplace and turn it into an amazing room centerpiece. Some inspiration….. traditional and not so traditional options.

Great Gifts in Store!!

Christmas time is here! 
The 25th is near.  
If little gifts are all you need,

(this little ditty was sung in my head to the tune of Christmas Time Is Here from Charlie Brown – I won’t win any awards but hey, there it is : )
So, obviously, I wanted to share some of what we have in store that would make GREAT stocking stuffers or fun, silly gifts. We’ve got LOTS!

Small and Splendid in Sweden!

I love it when people can take a small space (in this case 630 square feet) and turn it into an incredible living space that doesn’t skimp on anything. This attic apartment in Gothenburg, Sweden is so charming and fits so much style and function within it’s 4 walls. All the windows and the long wooden deck help make the apartment feel bigger too. Love it!
