Living Room Design Inspiration

Livingroom Design Ideas Inspiration

WOO HOO! We’re moving to a new apartment, a brand new apartment!  I’m so excited and happy to be in a new space.  We have outgrown our current apartment of 4+ years, plus we I am fed up with our NOISY, DIRTY, BUMPING, VAMPIRE, neighbors.

The photo above is an actual shot of our new living room, with virtual furniture added by me via photoshop ;-D.  Until now, I wasn’t sure of what I thought our new space should look like so I felt designing  around the couch and accent wall would be great colors to start with.  This is a “rough sketch”, so I i will have to keep you guys posted on the final look.  Since a number of these items are not in our budget I plan to look for similar “steal” items with other retailers or on craigslist.   I am still tweaking my plan so some things might change, for example, I love the green Crate & Barrel side chairs, but I think I’d like them more with actual arm rests. Plus, I still have to make sure everything is hubby approved ;).

Christmas Gift Ideas for Her


Hello my sweets,

Here are some of my loves for this christmas season, I think any of them would make a great gift for Her.  By the way, I have been eyeing those Kate Spade heels for months, drools…looooove.

With that said, I don’t ever submit a Christmas list to my husband, so he doesn’t know about these “loves”.  When it comes to gifts, I prefer to be surprised and I am really low maintenance when it comes to those things, so I don’t mind if I don’t get anything.  I really am fortunate for many reasons, so Christmas is just a fun reason to get with family, eat, drink, and celebrate love.  That is the meaning of Christmas to me and what brings me the most joy.

I hope your Christmas is very merry and your New Year is extremely happy!
