Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Here is a little picture wall inspiration for you. I LOVE picture walls and I really prefer the random humble & jumble look with frames that don't match...adds character. Picture walls really should tell a story and be images that bring inspiration or spark a special memory or moment. Hope everyone is off to a great week!

I have been a fan of Ruthie Sommers ever since that wonderful issue of Domino that showcased Drew Barrymore's apartment (I'm really excited for 'Going the Distance' btw). I love her design perspective, she is one of my faves. Look at that picture wall...pure genius! Her designs are comfortable, unpretentious, warm with a touch of elegance. If you haven't checked her out do so, her work is simply beautiful.

So, for the three people in the blogging world that don't know, the newest issue of Lonny is up! I say every issue is better than the last and this one is no different. I have been a fan of Rachael Ashwell for years and was thrilled to see her in the issue discussing the new direction of her company. So, I decided to post some different images I had of Rachael's work that are my favorite. So enjoy and go check out Lonny!

One thing I love are the new Fall TV shows, and this one looks really good. Very different its called a 'mockumentary' which are fictitious events in a documentary format...yea that was a new one for me too. Its called 'My Generation' and seems extremely relatable for me. It premier's on ABC September 23. On a side note, can we talk about how its August already...unbelievable. Anywho, check out the promo and tell me what you think!

This is going to be a two part post. I recently finished installing my latest clients living room and dining area and the results were great. As you can see from these before shots...umm there was some work to be done, but it was a blast!
First - The floors were ripped out and beautiful new hickory flooring was laid through out the entire house.
Second - The walls were painted and crown molding was placed all around the house to really add some interest to the walls.
Third - The fireplace mantle was scratched and I had a new one installed to add a little 'wow' and a much needed mantle.
Fourth & Final - All the furniture was ditched and the shopping began...
The goal for this space was to have a cozy,comfortable, cottage look that was conducive for a family with two kids and two dogs. I think that it was achieved....check out the next post!

So, I'm sitting here right now watching Nate Berkus on HSN and it made me dig though the inspiration folder for images in Elle Decor of his apartment in Milan. Its absolutely phenomenal! Its a bit more modern for my taste, but with that said, its so warm.
