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!

If touring show houses is considered a hobby, then I’m all in! This gorgeously decorated DC Design House was done by Marika Meyer who chose a simple color palette of white, beige and green. The whole home was created to bring in as much natural light as possible, which is one thing I love since I can’t live in dark and gloomy spaces. The unfussy color palette gives way to let some of Mother Nature’s gifts shine through like the floral arrangements and beautiful scenery from the outside. Her eye for natural beauty can be seen by the octopus tea cups, framed insects, over-sized clam shells, and fish motifs throughout.
We all have childhood memories of Granny’s house and her perfectly decorated floral pillows, afghan blankets, quilts, tassels, doilies and fringed furniture. Who knew interior designers would take cue from this tacky style and bring it to designer homes throughout America? This style isn’t entirely shabby chic – it’s where shabby chic once originated from. So let’s take a look at some of the good, the bad, and the ugly of Granny chic. What do you all think, would you give it a go?
