Decor inspiration from a Hotel

Tuesday, February 17, 2015

Today was part snow day, part work from home day and a whole lot of juggling.  Am I the only Mom that feels like I come up short in all areas on days like today?  School is cancelled tomorrow too! Yikes!

Yesterday I posted about some awesome gold and white ceramics from Zgallerie.  Then I remembered that I had seen them before.  In my real life, full-time job, I work in the hospitality field and went on a work field trip to see the new Courtyard and Residence Inn Richmond Downtown. Yall, they are gorgeous hotels!  SO cool!

I love this gallery wall! It's a great mix of shapes and different kinds of art with silhouettes, black and white photography and color artwork.

They also mixed in a lot of white ceramic books.

I found many of the artifacts at ZGallerie if you want to achieve a similar look in your home with white and gold decor.

Which piece is your favorite?

Mirror mirrors on the wall

Friday, January 30, 2015

We finally hung the mirrors ya'll!

I started by laying them out on the floor.  I still couldn't get a good idea of how they would look hung in the corner. Please forgive the horrible lighting and crappy iPhone photos, but they will give you an idea of the process.

Luckily the Target mirrors come with templates printed on the back of the packaging.  I cut them all out and traced the other mirrors onto newspaper and cut them out too.  Then I hung the templates on the wall with painters tape.

Then all we had to do was hammer in some nails and hang the mirrors.  Easy peasy!

And here's the final results!

I am loving how Lisa at Shine Your Light updated her Living Room.  It looks classic, comfortable and just gorgeous!

Lighting from World Market

Saturday, August 9, 2014

World Market has become one of my go-to stores for home decor and furniture.  Many of their items have the look of higher end items found at Pottery Barn and West Elm.


I may need this outdoor pendant for over the dining table on our porch.

Can you tell what my current design dilemma is?  I have a  new house and a lot of blank walls to fill, as a result I am always looking for wall decor whether it be a large mirror, art or family photos.  Here are some more of my faves:

Vacation Wall Art

I love to use art in my home that is personal to my family as I think that helps make our house a home. I am a big fan of Albie Design's. I would love the Washington DC, San Diego and the San Fran prints. 

I found a similar style of prints at Ikea of Paris and London which were some of our favorite vacations.

Do you have any travel prints in your home from vacations?  Or vacations you are dreaming about?
