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!

Trying to choose between high maintenance-chic and contemporarily-comfortable? Take Western Design into consideration for a look that’s timeless, low-maintenance and even better with age. Think roughed out leather couches, cow hide rugs, aged wooden furniture and a garnish of equestrian flair. The more worn out your furniture gets, the more character it adds to your overall look. This is definitely one style that’s family-friendly and completely practical. Take a look at some of my top picks to get the look at home:
You probably don’t intend to hide from your neighbors but face it; we all want a little privacy and space for ourselves in our own personal retreat. For the most part shrubs are easy to take care of, don’t need much maintenance, and are a naturally eco-friendly way of putting up a sturdy fence. I find them a great alternative to regular fencing since they give an instant look of a well-manicured lawn and can last forever.
- Pests aren’t going to be a problem but making sure you prune your shrubs a few times a year is vital. You don’t need to do fancy designs, as simply cutting back branches will do the trick.
- Be patient as your hedge can take up to three years to go from knee-high to should-high. The first two years will be slow, and the third year it should grow vigorously.
- Remember that hedges are all spaced differently. A 60-foot hedge may need 20 plants, or as many as 60.
BDB Tip: For speedy results build a masonry wall and grow your shrubs on top. This beats waiting for your tough plants to grow high enough to provide privacy.
