As a designer, writer, and entrepreneur, I’m obsessed with anything that is luxury, unique, or glamorous! I have a keen eye for style and love sharing all my ideas, muses, and projects with the rest of the design world! I love to travel along with Sophie, my mini Schnauzer whom I take on all my great adventures.

I’m a huge fan of Coco Chanel and when I came across this super duper easy weekend project from my girl Carlinn at Superficial Girls, I quickly fell in love. Carlinn is a sweet blogger from South Africa that really knows here stuff – fashion, home decor, beauty, you name it! Carlinn really did a good job with this painting and it’s so easy to do yourself that you really can’t go wrong. I think I’ll try this project this weekend and place it in my walk-in closet or my newly renovated bathroom. What do you all think?
What you need:
1. White canvas (whichever size you would want)
2. White PVA paint
3. Black acrylic paint
4. One small and one large paint brush
6. Printed out Chanel logo
1. Paint the canvas with two layers of white paint.
2. Print out the Chanel sign in the size that you want, and cut it out.
3. When the white paint is dry, outline the logo with a pencil, adding drips at the bottom of the logo.
3. Paint the outline with the black paint first and then fill in the inside of the logo. Use two coats if necessary.
If you want to try something different, paint it on paper and frame it in a chic black/gold frame!

When we think “bursting with energy” we think bright, bold, big, and beautiful! A dining room has got to make an lasting impression, especially if you have tons of guests over or if you have an open concept layout and your dining room is in full view. This space designed by Todd Alexander Romano screams “look over here!” and just calls for attention. A huge pineapple smack in the middle of the table makes an interesting conversation piece, and the lime green dining chairs actually works well with the eggplant purple walls. To spice up the whole look, Todd gave us a hint of zebra peaking out from the teeny tiny bench at the side. What a look!
Turning flea-market finds into treasures is a dream job I could do for the rest of my life – the satisfaction I get from turning junk into great works of art is utter fulfillment. Since a lot of you probably have old furniture you would like to upholster but don’t know where to start, I have put together a little guide to help you get started. It’s not even that difficult to do, with a little creativity and patience you can get your old furniture back in style for 2013.
Louis XVI chairs can be very expensive on the market, especially upholstered in damask fabric or velvet, and if topped off with nail head studs the prices can skyrocket through the roof! Take matters into your own hands and do it yourself – exactly the way you want to! Check out this easy DIY I came across from Country Living:
Step 1: Remove the old upholstery and any tacks or staples from the frame.
Step 2: Do the “eight-way hand-tie” technique for your springs.
Step 3: With a staple gun apply fox edge and buffer between the frame and the padding.
Step 4: After applying a layer of duke cotton, blue foam, and Dacron, apply your fabric.
Step 5: Use hot glue to secure the double piping.
And… voila you are done!
