Fresh new year, fresh home! Easier said than done, right? I love to de-clutter my house and I find myself doing it a bit more during the first weeks of January and sometimes in the beginning of new seasons (Hate doing it, but love once it’s done).

Turning a house into a home takes time. I’ve shared on here in the past about how I fell in love with my apartment and some tips + tricks on how to make this process easier on the pocket and stress free by tackling one room at a time. The process wasn’t easy, but well worth it! I never thought for a second that my house would be decorated the way it is now and the aesthetic it would follow. Black, white, gold and silver luxe- it’s what the space was calling for. I dress so colorfully and my last couch was royal blue so this was a huge change and these monochromatic colors are perfect for the high ceiling, white tiles and open space. Here and there I have been adding some Paris memorabilia because I want to be constantly reminded of the city that stole my heart lol… So it’s obvious I needed the perfect black and white picture of the gorgeous and most breathtaking part of that beautiful city- the Eiffel Tower from Minted website. Can I take a second to tell you how amazing this website is? They carry beautiful art, stationary, supporting local and international artists. Below I will list other pieces that I have been swooning over and I may just take the plunge! So here’s a few photos of my dining area. I wish I could tell you that I’m officially done, but I always find myself picking new things up and changing it and of course, once the weather starts to warm up, I’ll bring a few more colorful pieces in, but for now here it is! Hope you like it! Read More…

I recently shared on my Instagram the struggle and love-hate relationship I had with my new apartment. I believe home is where the heart is, of course! But, it also has to be a place that you love and enjoy going back to. It took me a while to see my house as my new home. Here’s a fun fact about me: I am a home body! My husband makes fun of me because if I don’t have any events on the calendar I will spend my entire weekend (happily) in bed and organizing my rooms. I will light up candles, have music playing or TV in the background and lounge around the house in my pj’s, drinking endless cups of tea and obsessing over the view. In the first few months, I hated being in there so I decided to face the fact that this was going to be my new house and started to decorate each corner by adding quality pieces that I loved. I did all of this in hopes that If I fell in love with little areas in the house, eventually I would love the entire place. Good news! I love my new home. I felt so guilty at first because everyone would walk in and admire the view and go on about how they loved my place and yet, I couldn’t see it.  So recently when I was invited to attend the grand re-opening of the newly renovated Baker show room, I was there. Why? Because they know their stuff! They are also under the same branding as Kohler- the creators of the most innovative faucets, toilets and much more in the market today. Read More…

Dania Opening

Hi everyone,

I’m so happy to let you guys know that I will be attending the grand re-opening of its Dania Beach showroom at the Design Center of the Americas and the one-night POP-IN shop. Tomorrow, November 11th from 5pm- 7pm. This was well curated by Baker with special appearance from the longtime collaborator and award winning interior designer Thomas Pheasant. I’m most excited about seeing the Kara Mann Collection for Baker called the Milling Road. I may just have to bring one of her pieces home with me. It just launched and is a really cool intersection of fashion and furniture.  There will be a lot of other fun things to see and check out (more details above). Come shop and get inspired with me!
