Rue Mag #5

I get so excited when I get an email telling me that a new issue of Rue Mag is out. They only publish every two months so the wait is long and I am always ready to see what inspiration the girls have put together. The most recent issue, I fell in love with this Beverly Hills APARTMENT of Jessica Marx. I love the colors and dramatic impact the rooms have!

Painting the apartment...

A couple months ago I decided I was sick about having beige walls we have to live with while renting an apartment.  I really don't like beige.  Although it can look really nice if done right, I feel like its pretty much the color everybody puts in their house because it's 'safe' and it's just too traditional and ordinary for me at this moment in my life!

I LOVE all white walls and I'm pretty much obsessed with anything black and white and eventually get some color punches on the walls or with some accessories.

I really like wallpaper but can't do that and it is definitely spendy, so I decided to get a Cutting Edge Stencil, the Casablanca pattern, to try to get the same affect as wall paper.  I wanted the wall to be predominantly white with the black design but since it was a reverse stencil, I had to first paint the wall black and then paint the stencil with white.  It took FOREVER!  Let's just say you can't do one coat of white over black...try doing FOUR coats and then you'll get the pure white!  Here are some pics of the process!

First had to paint the wall black
Let the stenciling begin...


Now I just need a rustic wood table, some navy velvet drapes and some hot pink touches and I will be done! 

P.S.  Sorry for the bad pics...that's as good as I get with my iPhone camera skillz :)

Michelle Workman Interiors...

And the most Fabulous Kitchen I have seen in a LONG time! 

   The white kitchen below has been my favorite kitchen for 2 years...the one I WILL have in my future home (only with white carrera marble counters).  Now I'm questioning which one I want more...Which one do you like better?  
Blue or White?

I don't know about you but I'm ready for some color!  We are in the grayest months of Seattle weather.  It really hasn't bothered me at all...I would take this drizzle over the bitter cold and snow any day.  We have been lucky enough to get a couple days here and there where the sun would shine and it is absolutely AMAZING!  I'm loving me some Turquoise blue right now.  I'm currently looking for some curtains that are just the right color of turquoise.  Pair it with some sunshine yellow and you have a sunny day inside :)

(Love the yellow bamboo chairs!)

(I would do ANYTHING for that #1 favorite)

Yummy Pesto Pizza

Last night I was with some good friends and watched the Golden Globes. It was a great time! Although many articles are saying Ricky Gervais was too harsh on his hosting duties, I truly think the show was hilarious! There is a reason he hosted two years in a row!

Well, with some of the people on the Daniel Fast, we decided to make a Vegan Pesto Pizza that was seriously the BEST pizza I have ever had! I got the recipe from Angela Liddon of Oh She Glows. This is the first recipe I have made from her blog but I cannot wait to try more!

You can see the post of the Pizza recipe here.

1) We had a pre-made pizza crust (100% whole wheat tastes the best) 2) Cover the crust with some EVOO and garlic and then smother with pesto. 3) Cut up some onion, tomato and basil leaves. 4) Put the cut up veggies in a baking pan with some EVOO and garlic and roast it in the oven. 5) Put the roasted veggies on top of the pesto. 6) Cook the pizza and ENJOY!

I didn't know healthy could taste this good!!
