DIY of the day...

Don't you just love when you find a fun, easy and cheap DIY project?  I am not going to lie, its freaking fantastic!
That is why I am mesmerized by Erica Domesek of P.S. - I Made this.....  Check out this luxe home accessory project that is so easy to do but packs a visual punch. 

I have a ton of accessories and ceramic animals that are all different finishes and after this weekend, they will be gold!

Kitchen Redo - Part I

Faucet,/ Marble,/ Hicks Pendant, /Cabinet Hardware/Artwork

Since the move into the new house, I have been dreaming of gutting and doing a complete redo of our kitchen. The time is here! Next week we start on the project and I am so ready to get this party started!
We are changing the countertops, back splash, sink, faucet, lighting & appliances. My vision is White, Navy, Grey and Modern. 
I am most excited for my Thomas O'Brien Hicks Pendant (from Circa Lighting - my favorite lighting store!) with modern lines + nautical flair that I want over our new kitchen Island.  I am sure in the design world, this pendant is old but I LOVE IT!! I also found great hardware, Farmhouse kitchen sink and faucet to go with my honed carrara marble counter tops.

Excited to have a finished kitchen, but not looking forward to living in this mess for the weeks to come. Be on the look out for before + After pictures.

Fall Flats....

I love shoes, especially great flats!  I stumbled across this line called Pretty Ballerinas out of Spain but they have a store in NYC and LA!

They have the best designs from nautical to sparkles.  My favorite are the gold sparkle with bows - they are the exact replica from Miu Miu's line.

Decorating on the cheap

Ladies, this is what I live for!  Finding amazing high end furniture for IKEA pricing.  Guess which chair is $1069.00 and which one is $149!  Same dimensions and quality - one is name brand and one is simply a sweet knockoff.
A, B

Chair A - is the affordable bar stool from my favorite website,  For only $149!  
Chair B - is the stylish and amazing Bertoia Bar Stool for Knoll.  Designed by Harry Bertoia in 1952, this is Mid Century Modern Design at its finest.

I have been looking for bar stools to go with our island in the new kitchen and was leaning towards the Knoll Bertoia Bar stool for awhile but dreading to spend that much for chairs. Deal!

Its Pinterest Time!

Its official, I am in love with Pinterest!  What a fantastic way to keep track of all the amazing images from websites, blogs, online magazines and more!
I am starting to take on the task of gutting and redecorating our kitchen. I love Pinterest since I can keep pictures together on my "Kitchen" board that are inspiring and what I want our kitchen to look like from color, lighting, fixtures and hardware.  I am going towards white, grey and navy and Carrara Marble.  What a wonderful tool if you are decorating your house or planning a wedding.  Follow my pinterest board and start pinning!  Here are a few images from Pinterest that I adore...enjoy!
