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.

After a dark and gloomy winter season it’s time for us to open up our homes to fresh new hues that liven and brighten up our spaces. A new trend that I love is using citrus hues to welcome the gorgeous spring season to come! Spring is all about a new beginning, so use this rule throughout your own homes as well. Slather on a fresh coat of lime green or even mint on your walls and stick to white for the trim, moldings, and accessories within the space. Pairing this juicy hue with watermelon pink or even lemon yellow makes a mouthwatering combination.

Bring an instant hit of color to your living room, bedroom or any space that is looking bland and washed out with an temporary solution that can easily be replaced and updated. Hot pink or fuchsia cushions have been popping up in design magazines across the globe, and why not? They are a fun addition, pumped with color and energy that give a tired looking sofa a quick spark! Take 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!
