Silver & Gold

silver and goldMetallics are definitely having a moment in the world of interior design. The shimmer, shine, and texture of metals make them a unique element in home decor. While decorating with metals is certainly on trend, their timelessness makes them easy to incorporate into a variety of styles that are sure to last.

At the moment, gold has returned to the design spotlight, and I love that this time around it’s being used in small, impactful ways that embrace its warm tones and regal character.

If your decorative style steers more towards the rustic and natural approach to metallic finishes, why not try the appeal of corrugated metal? In recent years corrugated metal has been used by designers for walls, ceilings, sides of cabinetry and creative accent walls

The zebra is adaptable

 Zebra rugs can blend beautifully

and adapt to an array of interior design styles.

The lovely black & white is a gracious compliment to all colors

and can be used in every room.

The Grand Tradition

Don and I were married at the grand tradition in Fallbrook, California. Last week I went there for lunch with my friends, I have not seen the place since 1989. It was beautiful then, but it’s gorgeous now……..IMG_1310


















That’s the tour,

It was a very good place to marry


Today we celebrate our 24th anniversary!

Wait! it’s not over yet

I’m preparing my kids for back to college and school, but it’s only the middle of summer!

I’m not ready to let go of these relaxing balmy days. beach 8
