New Years Resolutions

I'm starting off my 2013 resolutions (more relaxing) right this year by extending my vacation one more week and spending it with some of our closest friends in Tahoe. The skies are blue and the snow is fluff! Can't wait to take the kids sledding this afternoon before we celebrate New Years early at 9:00 so the kids can celebrate too.

If I could add one more thing to this list it would be more time for my husband. He always seems to get the short end of the stick when my time is concerned. Love you babe, thank you for your continued support and love.

2013 - Here We Come


This image pretty much summarizes how I feel about the upcoming year!  I'm taking it head on and am excited to bring you all on the journey with me.  I'll be sharing some new images of before and after large full-scale home projects I've been working on as well as some killer kids rooms in the next few weeks.

Here is to 2013!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas wishes to you all and your families. We've been celebrating in Texas and were surprised with some holiday snow yesterday. Nothing like a white Christmas!

Celebrity Mollly Sims Nursery

Now you know that blue is one of my favorite colors with turquoise being first and periwinkle being second. That is why I'm so drawn to the soft yet sophisticated design of Molly Sims nursery.  I saw these photos on Elements of Style today and had to share them with you.  It has a subtle bohemian vibe which seems to suite Molly perfectly.

Now if you like the look here are some details on the items used:

Fabric for the bedding, I'm almost 100% sure it is a custom bed set using John Robshaw's Shali Lapis.

Now the crib looks like the Austin crib from Duc Duc. 

I thought the dresser was from Duc Duc too but I don't see the style on their site, maybe it is a custom design or an old style but it looks like a piece from their collection.

The adorable animal prints above the bed are from the Animal Shop by Sharon Montrose.

Love this Villa Playroom

This might be one of my favorite playrooms yet!  Looks to be in some villa in Italy or France. And the branch holiday tree! Love!

Bill and Giuliana's son Edward Duke's Nursery

TV celebrities Bill and Giuliana's son Edward Duke has a fabulous sophisticated nursery. My favorite details are the blue grey grasscloth walls and custom monogrammed crib. Well done!  I think any adult would gladly take this room as their own.

Favorite Nativity Set of 2013

I'm always on the hunt for an authentic nativity set.  This year my favorite is from a store in Tribeca called Playing Mantis.  It is pricey at $500, but worth the cost since it is all hand carved and a piece to pass down from generation to generation (given your toddlers don't break the pieces while playing baby Jesus.)  I'm hoping to get this under the tree so I can put it up next year in the house!
