New York is absolutely freezing right now and I am having an affair with my bed. Unfortunately for me, I'm under the weather (the flu is the worst). So, what else is there to do but daydream of how I will work out the decorations in my new apartment, right? A lovely and calm bedroom perfect for freezing cold weather will absolutely do...

I feel very strongly that sleep is very essential in this city. Lately, I have been so busy and getting so many things done before the holidays that sleep is a complete luxury. All I can think about today I the ultimate place where I want to dream. This Miles Redd bedroom is everything I want right now and more. He is kind of a genius in the bedroom...

The storm came and went and left much to be repaired. I had a shattered window and ruined drains but at least we are all safe and sound. Luckily, I had a lovely fireplace and some wonderful candlelight to get me through. I can't help but be reminded of how gorgeous fireplaces in bedrooms are, especially this gorgeous Rita Konig apartment...

Lately I am really loving hanging lights in home decor. I have a chandelier in my apartment hanging over my bed, and I absolutely love it. However, I am loving the look of hanging lamps over bedside tables. This is such a great way to eliminate cluttered tableau and give room for other essentials and really fab accessories. Black and very glamorous chandeliers would be my first choice but there are several other styles that work too...

A woman's touch in decor is something that I will forever be a proponent of. However, there are times when a man really steps up to the plate and gets his style straight. I am working on a few clients right now that are bachelors in the city and I cannot continue to stress enough the importance of a cleanly and chic masculine bedroom. I truly believe that your confidence starts in your home. If your home is chic, looking right and clean you will walk more powerfully and confidently through your day... #justsaying

Pardon my lack of posting these last few days. After my trip back home to Texas, I came home with the flu. It's incredibly difficult to even move, let alone compose a blog post. In an effort to not let my most loved people in the world, you, my readers, down, I thought I'd share a few blue bedrooms. Because thats the color of my bedroom at my grandmothers house. (thanks for all the sweet comments about her by the way, she LOVED them) Being sick in bed all day is no fun, but in these gorgeous bedrooms, a day in bed could very well be blissful...

My brain is absolutely excited that the weekend is here, despite the rain I am thoroughly enjoying finally staying in the city for the weekend. No traveling for the entire month, thank goodness! It's time for me to get things organized and clear out the things I don't use anymore (Jen totally inspired me).
More than that what I will be spending my weekend doing is getting a clear vision of what I want for my new apartment. So, as I was catching up on my favorite online glossies, I stumbled upon Michelle Adam's of Lonny Magazine and her gorgeous new bedroom. I am such a sucker for canopy beds and in this issue she details just how she did it so you can do it too...

As I start planning my move, my eyes are already shopping for new furnishings. What I am really into lately is wood in the bedroom. I think I may have been spending too much time by the beach, and lovely earthy rooms. I'd love to see how a beautiful wooden bed looked in a sea of more modern pieces, I just love a good mix. This four poster dark wood bed looks so regal against this brick wall. Brick is so common in NYC apartments, so this could be something I could work with...

The laid back style of California is everything I am into this summer. When I spotted this adorable couple's home on apartment therapy I knew I had to share it with you guys. The style in this home is just beyond words. Take a cue from this super cute spread to build a stylish home...

This weekend I spent some time with my grandmother who I absolutely adore. We had a conversation about decorating and she shared with me that her most favorite color on the walls in pretty baby blue. I immediately agreed and gushed over my recent affections for the sweet pastel hue. I happen to think it works marvelously in the bedroom, because it's so serene and relaxing...

Just the other day I got an interview questionnaire and as I was filling it out there was one question that got to me. It asked me what is the purpose behind what I do.
Oddly, enough I had to think about it for a minute because my first instinct was to talk about how I want to make the world a more beautiful place. That answer didn't really sit right in my heart and then I realized that what I am most passionate about is the home.
Your home is your sanctuary and I love the feeling of loving my home, I feel so awesome at the end of the day coming home to my special space. My purpose is to help other people have that same feeling about where they live...you know, the art of domestic bliss....

Romantic bedrooms just speak to my soul. It's probably why I love period films so much, the bedroom is always so luxurious and filled with layers of fabrics. I have always want to re create this look in my own bedroom (if my current one was any bigger, i would give it a try)...

Nina Bergsten...no idea who this woman is but her style is OH SO VERY chic. Stockholm is her home, so she has that Swedish style on lock. White walls, white furnishings with bits of black and rustics in the mix. What I love most is the touch of pretty pastels added throughout which really give the masculine look such a soft, feminine touch. Its perfection in my book...read more!

A decorators work day never ends. One of my current projects is pretty challenging. With the size of bedrooms in the city, storage is so tricky to plan for. My client wants under bed storage and as a decorista, I find it challenging to find both practicality and style in one...read more!
