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.

“Happy Hollow” was an interesting challenge by architects to transform a 1901 stone and shingle gambrel into the owner’s vision of a comfortable English cottage. For those of you that don’t know, a gambrel is usually a symmetrical two-sided roof home with slopes on each side. This home is really interesting and looks as almost hobbits could be living inside!
To make this fairy tale dream come true, the house had to be stripped, given a major change of plan and several additions were added. All architectural details were taken into consideration when decorating the interiors such as the stone walls, sloped roofs, and rounded rooms. I love, love the stone fireplace in the kitchen – ideal for a stone baked pizza!

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!

I know in the 17th and 18th century, designers loved to design each room with one theme, and one color only! When I toured the Schonbrunn Palace a few years back, I remember stepping into each room and being surprised. Every room had a different theme going on – the red room, the green room, the blue room, e.t.c. I always thought this was interesting as you didn’t know what to expect when entering a room. The rooms below have a modern take on this design style and used French toile, venetian motifs, and floral prints throughout each space. Pretty neat!
