Aimee's guest bedroom

As my previous post showed, I have been brainstorming a new color scheme and design plan for my stepmom's guest bedroom. The walls are cream, and she's got black lamps, so that was our starting point. She loved this rug, and then I found these pillows on etsy and I LOVE them. That red is probably going to be purchased by me very soon... I need to have that somewhere in my house! I'm so excited because this is a project I am going see (fingers crossed) start to finish, because she's got the means to get this room done! I can't wait to get it all put together.

Black and white

First off, I'm back! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I was very spoiled this year, later I will post some pics of my newest gadgets for projects!
My stepmom has recruited me to design her guest bedroom (where we stayed over Christmas) and I'm pretty much ecstatic, because it's recently been remodeled and it's beautiful. Meanwhile, I've been mulling ideas around in my head not only for her room, but also my bedroom.... I've become very obsessed with black and white, particularly stripes, but also with some color. Some visuals to demonstrate.... =)

OMG right? Yeah that's kinda what I'm thinking, I just need more color splashed in there (some green perhaps?) And by the looks of things, I've become a not-fan of wood anymore. Don't know how that happened but all the white glossy furniture has hooked me. And I'm okay with that.

Guys, I really need an apron. I never thought I did, I mean it never occurred to me that I should be cooking while wearing one.. until I stumbled upon some amazingly CUTE ones on anthropologie's website. I mean, they're so cute I want to wear them all day, like a dress! I realize Christmas is just days away and I've probably already been shopped for, so I'm not counting on it this year... but maybe next? Take note =) Oh and you know what the best part is? They're affordable! Around $30-38


And I'm in love with these bath towels... My husband thinks we don't need any new ones, but I think most guys are content on using the same old towel for years at a time. But hey these are more decorative anyway! I must have them.

Hollywood Glamour

From Elle Decor:

A fashion designer (Nanette Lepore) infuses a Victorian townhouse in Manhattan with (my fav!) Hollywood Glamour. I'm pretty much in love with this house.

Check out this amazing chandelier ship!

Christmas window displays

One day I really want to be in NY during Christmas time.. everything looks so decked out and festive! Shopping is good anyway in New York, but how of how much funner- and enticing it must be with fancy Christmas displays in the window!

Typically I'm more of a color person.. I don't lean as much to neutrals but I think this has just the right touch of both, and I love it.

Sacha and Johan's High Risk/High Reward Home
Pretoria, South Africa
This has got to be the coolest house ever... each room is so different and unique and the couple is not afraid of color in the slightest. They wanted a loft feel, but then went retro in the kitchen. So rad

I may have just hit the RUG jackpot

Sooooo I've posted about rugs before, and I still have not purchased one.. so dumb! But I have a little link on my page to, and honestly I've only really looked at lighting at the site, disregarding the "plus." Holy Hannah I'm in heaven... I'm really digging geometric patterns on a rug, and I found so many that I absolutely love.
