Sensational Silver on Display

Here’s a little decor upgrade that I have a feeling you will  absolutely be able to participate in -without having to purchase anything….

If you’re over a certain age, you most likely have more than a few items around the house made of silver or silver plated .  If I’m guessing WHERE those items are-it would probably  be in storage. Am I right?!  Soooo here’s a thought..why not take those items out of storage, clean them up with a bit of elbow grease and silver polish and display  them in a multitude of  glamorous ways around your home.

For Example:

Silver Trays :Perfect for display. Put out a tray as decor- simply on it’s own or group items together (books, perfumes, candles etc)  and whah lah-instant glam.

Silver pitchers,Urns,Tea  Sets:.Fill with any assortment of items: Kitchen  Utensils, Make up brushes,  Flowers & Plants (*Quick tip-When working with fresh flowers or any type of living  plant that needs to be watered:put  growing item in a clear container or vase /add water and only then insert into your  silver container .

Below are a few examples of creative ways to re purpose all that beautiful Silver you have in storage… Display Away!!!

Wonderful Work Spaces

Posted By: Terri

Hello Monday. It’s back to work !

Speaking of work …did you know that 43% of Americans work from home! Bearing in mind that  a home office is almost a requirement these days, I thought it might be nice to post some wonderful work spaces that inspire! If you’re looking  to do a little sprucing UP for Spring, I’ve sourced a bevy of beautiful images  & BONUS- my top three items that every home office should have to make your day productive and pleasurable.

When it comes to having a work space that inspires creativity and productivity,here are a few features you want to keep in mind when upgrading your space:

  1. A comfortable  office chair . You’re going to be doing allot of sitting in that chair so it best be comfortable and if per chance it has a bit of style…all the better.  Gone are the days of sitting in a standard  swivel chair with lackluster style. Today you can use a bevy of beautiful seating alternatives to get to  your Chair Bliss.
  2. A desk that fits your space and your needs: At the bare minimum you have to have a desk or table big enough for your computer and offers a space for you to write. That’s the minimum. It needs to be the right width and height so you can work comfortably.
  3. Lighting:  Good lighting is key! Natural light is  an added bonus in any room not to mention looking outside and seeing a bit of nature is always inspiring.

Welcome to a tour of J. Lo's L.A. Home

Welcome to a tour of J. Lo’s L.A. Home

Jennifer Lopez is putting her $17 Million dollar home up for sale. If you just so happen to be in the market for a lovely abode that is jam packed with style …have we got a place for you! (Well that and you have to have the $17 M-but I digress). As I perused pictures of this beautiful home via Variety online you can learn allot about a  person-in this case Ms. Lopez.

1.  Jennifer prefers a neutral palette for her home.

2. The girl loves her some great lighting fixtures-aka chandeliers. Gorgeous .

3.Prints are good as long as they are also neutral and used sparingly.

4. When in doubt EXPAND the master bath-a girl has got to have a place to primp.
