Malibu Blue and White...


I've always appreciated Malibu beach house decorating and nothing beats adding a few updates to get that clean sophisticated beach house look that's so chic (smart and stylish). I thought today I would share some blue, white and neutral accessories that can literally go in any room of your home.

Tory Burch: Spring Break '13

Tory Burch's spring break inspiration makes me want to fast forward to a week off from work and head to Naples Beach, Florida.  Speaking of going to the beach, I've been looking for the perfect one piece swimsuit and I think this one is a winner.  Love the way it's cut low in the back and the shirt she's wearing looks cute as a cover-up. 

What do you think about wearing a one piece? What are your plans for spring break? 

I wouldn't mind packing this gorgeous towel in my beach bag...



Easter Pastels...


I already started decorating for Easter and love everything pastel. One thing I would love to do is hang these adorable egg ornaments on some branches. 


These almonds could double as decorations and treats.





Tory Burch Bohemian Chic Table Setting



I called it first! Tory Burch will one day have home accessories! Okay, this is just wishful thinking on my part, since I love her gorgeous design style in all of her homes. This week she was planning to have dinner with two special friends and shared her table settings with us. I love the sophisticated bohemian style she used with those super chic chargers, pom pom napkin holders and casual cotton napkins. Makes me want to plan a dinner and invite some friends over! I found a few things to help you get the look...

Instagram Lately...

Have I told you lately how much I love HomeGoods? Wow! You have to see what I bought this week from there...first of all that wall clock looks awesome in my kitchen... I am blessed to have two stores nearby!

I'm so excited about Easter this year and would love one of each... Click here to see the post.

My new favorite outdoor room designed by Ryan White. I want one just like it... 
Check out his work here and my post here.

I received many emails asking about Tory Burch's Amira Dress asking if it's still available. It sure is! Check out the links here

Enjoyed a late afternoon coffee with my family...


So excited that Williams Sonoma Home loved this mood board I created...

Beachy Chic...



The next room design I will be working on is my living room. As of now, the only things in that room that will be staying are two wicker chairs that I purchased at the Williams Sonoma outlet near the Hamptons. I had to have them, so I paid an arm and a leg to have them shipped to Miami and honestly haven't regretted that decision since. They actually go with the coffee table that you see in my family room make-over. My plan is... buy a slipcover sofa from City Furniture that is about $600, two comfy side chairs to match, a large 9x12 seagrass rug and two tall lamps that are made of a grayish wood from Target. That should cover the big pieces to fill out the room and I've been watching anxiously to see what accessories Williams Sonoma has in store for us this summer and low and behold! I couldn't be more thrilled with their accessories! I picked out some pieces that  will inspire my new room and love the mix of patterns in the pillows. Of course, coral and shells are a must and that beautiful watercolor painting would look perfect over the sofa...



Malibu Beach House


Happy Friday! Are you glad it's here? This weekend I'm looking forward to relaxing and finishing up a small bathroom make-over that I'm going to share with you soon. Hope you have a great day!

Check out this fabulous Malibu beach house designed by Ryan White of Ryan White Designs based in Los Angeles, California. I love that it's comfortable, rich with color and is literally steps away from the Pacific Ocean. Imagine having that view day in and day out! One of my favorite rooms in the home is the casual, yet sophisticated outdoor room below. I also love the greenery behind the sectional. I will be running out tomorrow to get a few of those to add some green around here.  This beach home is a winner in my book! What do you think?


Find similar lanterns here. 


I've always loved this bed! It's the Sorrento bed from Williams Sonoma.

Easter Brunch


I look forward to hosting Easter Day brunch at my home every year and coming up with a menu that my family loves.  One year we had a big breakfast complete with Belgian waffles and omelets. This year, I'm not sure what's going to be on the menu, but I can tell you my table is going to look pretty darn cute thanks to HomeGoods. I got the most adorable decorations from there during my party this past Saturday and look forward to setting up my Easter table. 

Another store I get great ideas from is Williams Sonoma and I'm especially smitten their Easter brunch inspiration for 2013. I love the neutral, earthy tones and the speckled egg salt and pepper shakers are on my list to get! Here are a few items that I would love to add to my new Easter decoration collection...

Good morning and Happy Presidents Day! I hope everyone had a great weekend. With springtime just around the corner and a few trips that I have planned, it's a treat for me to find things that would be fun to wear. Suede booties are a big hit these days and a comfortable pair of chic pumps are what's on my list to wear to a bloggers conference I have coming up in a few months. Are you having any springtime cravings?
