Lonny Magazine- Amanda Nisbet

I got the newest issue of Lonny magazine in my inbox the other day and was so excited about one of the articles.  It was a feature article with one of my favorite Designers, Amanda Nisbet.  Not only were the pictures of her office beautiful but her words were so inspirational for anyone, but especially aspiring business owners like myself.  I was so excited to learn that she is a completely self taught designer.  She is awesome.  Here are a few of the pictures that were highlighted, but make sure you check out the latest issue of Lonny Mag to read the whole article.

Two of my favorite Amanda Nisbet fabrics…

Auburn - Oh – love her colors in her home, and her style!

Which "style" are you?- Tricks of the Trade

I think one of the biggest challenges people face when completing projects around the house is determining which style they like.  I think many people worry when they realize that they have picked things from two different types.  Well, I am here to tell you that mixing styles is totally acceptable and great in my opinion.  The key to everything in a room is balance.  The overall picture of a room can portray your style even if every item in the room is not “your style”.   When somebody asks you, “what style is your house?” keep in mind that does not mean your home should only have that style in it.  
Start by looking at the pictures below and pick which one you like the most.  Use that as your guide to pick things out in that particular style group, but do not let it stop you from finding things that you love in another style group to mix in.  And remember, your style will constantly be changing…and it is ok…everybody’s does!

Jamie - Traditional and transitional! Fun to look through the different styles. So how does one mix?

Annie @ House on Rene - I would say I am transitional eclectic. Which I think can go together pretty well…I just haven't gotten it down for me yet! 😉

Nancy@OwensOlivia - transitional all the way. though in my head i wish i were eclectic.

Kim @ keller-creative - I want to be transitional but I have a lot of traditional too..

Link Outdoor Fabric

I was introduced to Link Outdoor fabric when it became one of my favorites after a visit to the Scottsdale design center.  They have great color selection and fabulous fresh designs.  I got a pleasant surprise in my email inbox from a member of the Link Outdoor team.  They sent me some pictures showcasing their latest collections.  These pictures look like candy and I want all of them…
 To view all of their products visit the Link Outdoor website and contact me if you would like more info on anything.  I hope to make a BBQ cover and new chaise lounge covers out of some of these fabulous prints.  My backyard needs some sprucing up before the summer.

Eucalyptus Art

I grew up in San Diego, CA in an area that was known for all of the Eucalyptus trees.  Because of this I love Eucalyptus trees.  I have been on the search for a special piece of artwork that could go in my house to remind me of the Eucalyptus trees.  Here are a few that I found, mostly on etsy.  I am not sure that I have found “the one” yet because I am still deciding where it will hang, but I just thought I would share.  
Do you have a special piece if artwork in your home?

Art Can Be Fun
