kate spade

I'm in Dallas checking out the goods at Northpark mall. How ridiculous am I that I notice and get more excited about the layout and design scheme of stores rather than their products?? Just look at the rug! And the color scheme.. I'm in love. (the shoes were amazing too, I must admit.)

Tradition with a punch

Now, I don't do country and I don't love traditional. But Gideon Mendelson transformed a beautiful, classic home of a couple of empty nesters to something a little more exciting, in my opinion. I'm also not the biggest fan of blue, but that green kitchen sure is awesome and the home looks very polished and clean.

Stylist Tara Sloggett

I love these images from Very fresh ideas with decorating that involve the unexpected..

Bathroom glam

Don't you love a good makeover? has wonderful before-and-afters and today we are highlighting bathrooms!!

What the dungeon? I love gold, and that's a unique mirror, but don't you HATE not being able to see your whole self in the mirror?? Just too dated and dark
 Amazing.. Paint the walls, paint the sink/dresser, and new mirror and fixtures. Honestly this could not have been that expensive, but the effect is huge! So much brighter!

Looks like something we've probably all seen... a project started but not finished.
 Love everything about this... that sink is so cute, the white, with the fun curtain, it's just beautiful
 Bachelor pad bathroom... do I even need to comment?
 LOVE. This is  modern, masculine, but fresh and interesting

 Ew ew ew. Everything is just grandma
Sooo much better
And voila!

 Don't we all have vanities like this one? Nothing terribly wrong with it, but not all that exciting
 And wow.. shock value. Amazing what that wall covering adds, yeah?
Ohhhh my goodness. I don't even know what to say. This is horrendous

 AHHHH white is just so amazing! I love that they even kept the mirror, but just painted it (my favorite trick of course). Same pedestal sink but it looks so much more current.

Tai Pan

If you're a Utah resident, you probably know about the wonderful home decor store, Tai Pan Trading (they also have a location in Rancho Cucamonga, CA). My friend and partner in crime for finding cute things, Paityn found some awesome goodies this week:
Super cute chandelier $35
 holy rainbow! $179
 Coffee table/ottoman (looks like it opens too) $50
 cute pillows $20
And also my obsession, the ceramic garden stool that I look for everytime... $50

They always send out decent coupons in the mail.. such a great store. I hear the Sandy warehouse one is amazing but I have yet to check that out!

Just for fun

Anyone watch the Golden Globes a couple days ago? Me neither, BUT all over entertainment news, I keep seeing coverage from the red carpet and some of the dresses this year blew me away! (I mean, that's the only reason we watch those shows, right ladies?) So I decided to post some favorites

Green goddesses
 OKAY I love it. Emerald green is calling to me big time. Has anyone else noticed that Mila Kunis has a mini me?? Julie Bowen's daughter on Modern family?? I swear they could be twins
 Angie. Very covered up, but love the color. I've said it once and I'll say it again, this girl needs to put on weight. I don't know why there's so much hype about her emaciated grandma bones!
Oh Cathy Z, you stunner. Can you get any more beautiful? Apparently you do, even in your 40's. (She IS in her 40's right?)

Well this is such a shiny number and it's gold and great, but I'm especially a sucker for backless
 Xtina. I am very much over your red lipstick, bleached hair and pin-up girl style, but this dress is beautiful
 Eva. where'd those boobs come from?! This dress was backless too. Awesome
Poor Nat got some flack for her dress from the likes of Joan Rivers (shocking I know), but I like this, especially since she's prego!
 Olivia Wilde. Did you know her real name is Olivia Cockburn?!!! (bahaha) Anyhow, a smidge prom-my to me, but it's sparkly and amazing still. Hair's gotta go however
 Scar Jo.. newly singled, poor girl but I dig this vintage-y dress. Old Hollywood Glamour rocks my world. Period.
