Hollywood Regency

Woodson and Rummerfield definitely have the Hollywood Regency style perfected. I love everything they do. Their showrooms are full of glamour. The wall molding with the various lighting and pops of color give every room so much personality. Not only do they know how to design but they offer some of the most amazing furniture, accessories, wallpaper and fabrics I have ever seen. Browse through their website and be amazed.

My Birthday Charity

Although I don't have many followers right now I am hoping that this post will be able to encourage one of you to use your birthday in a powerful way this year! And if you jump on board then others will too!
There is a new website called My Birthday Charities. You can go to their website at The purpose of this site is to allow you to use your birthday to raise money and/or bring awareness to a charity of your choice. Instead of receiving gifts on your birthday, ask your family, friends, co-workers, acquaintances, etc. to donate money to whatever cause you want! When you really think about it we have all that we could ask for and there are so many other people in this world whose lives could be transformed by YOUR birthday. Such and easy task with such a significant outcome!
My husband used his birthday this month to raise money for a charity called For the Silent. Their purpose is to save people that have become prisoners in the world of sex trafficking. His goal was to raise $260 and we were amazed to that nearly double was raised! You can have this impact too! Sign up! Invite others to do the same! And have a Happy Birthday!

So Pure

I love this room. The shades of white, cream, grey and pink. The amazing grand piano.
So feminine. So relaxing. So peaceful. So perfect.

Finally Finished!

At the very beginning of the summer I posted my summer project. I was determined to upholster an ugly, plaid, wood-trimmed, wing back chair. After many late nights, screams of frustration and a couple finger staplings...I AM FINISHED! I now understand why it is expensive to get anything upholstered. For my next project, I will invest in spending some money on some better tools to make it a little easier. So here are the before and after pictures. Please excuse my elementary camera skills. I'm not the greatest all!

Shabby Chic Dreaming

Ok, I'm sure you have already seen this before but I have to post it just for the possibility that one of you may have not seen it yet. I came across this a while ago and was in complete "awe". This little heavenly chic cottage was featured in the New York Times and has been raved about in so many blogs. I'm pretty sure everyone has been amazed of what Sandy Foster has done. She created this joyous retreat with a budget of only $3000. That really explains that home is really only where the heart is. This was her heart. Her dream retreat. And she made that dream come true. And I don't know how it could be better. This lovely cottage is a tasteful 125 square feet of pure bliss. There is no bathroom or kitchen which makes it a complete escape. Her and her husband share a mobile home on the property that gives them their other needs. To read the whole story go to the New York Times article. You will be truly amazed of her story and how this cottage began as a dream when her family lost their home when she was only 15. I would say she has conquered every odd. She is an inspiration.
Dream. Dream Big. Dreams Come True.

I don't know why I torture myself by looking for amazing finds on craigslook. I know I will not be allowed to take a last minute furniture road trip across the country to truck some more furniture to Seattle. I'm just so in love with these pieces! I wish I could just drive around the country finding amazing pieces to display in our home. If I could have any of these it would have to be the blue crushed velvet sofa. LOVE!
