    Kitchen Pendants

    I finally found kitchen pendants lights to go over my island! My kitchen has a lot of windows. You would think that it would be light and airy. You would be wrong!

    Tiny Details In My Office

    I shared my office with you last week in a really HUGE post. So huge that I couldn’t show you all of the tiny details in my office in one post. So today I get to share those with you! Tiny details always make the piece come together. It’s just like adding jewelry to your favorite outfit. Here is a reminder of how my new/old tv armoire/office looks like. It was done in chalk paint, so it has a beautifully soft patina. The back plates on the doors would NOT come off without some serious damage to the doors, so I left them. I added these modern lucite and brass…
