You guys must check out the new issue of ROCO MAGAZINE...
They were kind enough to feature me and my sweet little New York studio. I have a huge makeover happening in my apartment right now so this is a sweet goodbye to the old look. Roco Mag is beautiful + glamorous and right up my alley. I love the other features too...

The cover is so very romantic and I quite literally almost fell out of my chair when I saw this photo of open doors overlooking a gorgeous lake. The coral/orange puddled curtains just stole my heart. 
 This sweet little bedroom took my attention too. I can't help but adore that sweet pup.

Great photos. Great magazine! 

Inspired by Matchook Mag...

The latest issue of Matchbook was full of the most inspirational photo shoots I just couldn't get enough. I instantly gravitated towards this black and white shoot with shots from my two loves...
My first love belongs to LA, where I have lived for the past 7 years. My heart and soul were nourished in the city of angels...and then I recently moved to New York City and everyday Manhattan gives me new, fresh feeling of love....

and then Paris, the city of love...
I think these 3 photos in black frame with white matting might make the perfect bathroom artwork. 

Also, I was featured in this issue too {matchbook investigates, pg 44} alongside one of my blog besties, Cassie from coco + kelley. So fun. 

10 things that rocked my world in 2010

1. My blog + my website... The Decorista has been such a fun and worthwhile indulgence! I've loved every single moment of it.
2. My lovely cousin + roommate, Enrique, its been such a fun year living with family... I've thoroughly enjoyed our cute little home. Home is where the heart is afterall. 
(pic of us is from Suz's holiday soiree)
3. Anything and everything studded. All year I have been obsessed with the shiny yet rockstar-y embellishments on everything from shoes to sidetables.
4. the LEOPARD revival. it may have been around but this year I loved rocking this feline print.
5. inspirational quotes like this one, it was my 2010 mantra! It's all about creating yourself. 
6. My fabulous job working for Woodson + Rummerfield. Jaime and Ron are amazing people...inspiring, talented, stylin' and  have hearts of gold! 
7. Turquoise and gold. I have absolutely loved watching these two in interiors, so glamorous!
8. Office spaces. we all know they are my obsession.
9. the whole nerdy glasses look and supremely chic blazers, super staples of 2010.
10. my feature in Look Magazine completely rocked my world and made me know that I am on the right path...probably the coolest thing to happen this year! 

2010 was a fabulous year! So excited for the 10 things of 2011...
