Makeover Magic...

My friend Marla and author of Keeping Up With Stella waned to perk up her built-in's in her living room.  When Marla first moved in she just threw some photos and knick knacks in them and did not have time to arrange them the way she wanted to.  So together we set out to "Zhush" (aka to primp or fluff) them up! 


  Not bad but too many mismatched pictures and the groupings did not work well together.

Here are some befores...

The After's...

 In order to make them look super FAB, Marla switched out her photos to black and white, bought some new frames, took a trip to HomeGoods, shopped Etsy and hunted through house sales!  

She also found an amazing gold damask wallpaper from Graham and Brown, which she and her Dad hung on the back of the bookshelves!

Good job Marla, they look AMAZING!!!

Solid Gold...

I have always been attracted to gold even when silver was all the rage!  There are a ton of gold accents in my home and I mostly wear gold jewelry.  
Which do you prefer?

The Color Purple...

Purple used to be my favorite color when I was little and now pink has taken it's place.  
There is something lovely about purple...
