I am looking for more calm in my house. Often I have so many things that I like to decorate with that instead of looking interesting, it just looks chaotic. Not the effect I had in mind. It's hard to pare down. 

What I do is this ::: clear the room, cabinet, closet, etc. completely and then see what I think. Maybe you find you like austere - maybe it needs a little something. But take everything away so you can really see what it looks like at its simplest. Then slowly add a few things.

Crazy Color Combo

Walking though West Elm last week, I saw lots of pairings of yellow and grey. I am not much of a yellow girl - but I have to say I really like these two colors side by side. Both yellow and grey have so many different shades and can evoke very different moods - what are some unexpected color combinations you have come across lately?

1970 DWS on a Road Trip!

We went to Ellicott City last week to source some unique items for a client. If you have not been there, it's well worth the trip north. Funky stores, a beautiful town and great food - what more could you ask for?
