Pin..Pin..Pinterest… The best of ORGANIZATION!

I try to be an organized person….BUT – there are two exceptions.  1. When I can’t figure out what to wear – I tornado my bedroom and putting it all back is a nightmare.  2. When I am home visiting my parents in Miami.  There is an accent chair right next to the door of my closet, and I just lay EVERYTHING on this chair.  It’s terrible.

But, for the most part – I try to keep it together.  Pinterest has many inspiring ideas for keeping organized and here are some of my favorites!

ALSO – if you need a pinterest invite, leave your email address and I can hook you up!

 

My jewelry drawer is in good shape, but this makes mine look so weak. I love this like you wouldn't believe!

I think this is such a cute idea, especially if you don't have a lot of drawer space in your kitchen. OR you could do this for buffet style entertaining.

I don't love the font used, but I do like how it's all organized by category. This makes it so easy to find products when they are grouped together properly.

If you like to wrap gifts, this is a great idea. You can use a mulit-row pant hanger to keep all of your ribbons neatly in place.

I love these drawer liners from Hammocks and High Tea.

My mom has this in her bathroom and its brilliant. She never has to deal with cords hanging out every where. I do think she has a power strip though and not just a two plug. Still - such a good idea.

Where to shop: Michael Levine – Downtown LA

 

A great place to get fabric is downtown Los Angeles, especially if you are looking for budget friendly.  So one of my favorite stops is Michael Levine. Have you been?  It’s great!  They have a ton of great fabric options including velvet, silk, sheers, fur, vinyl, plastic…. They also have a great selection of trims and tassels.  It’s a great spot, with a wide range.  If you haven’t been, I highly suggest it!  Their website has information on specials.
So – I was there a couple of days ago looking for fabric for my benches in my foyer and came across several things that really caught my eye.

A beautiful geometric in black, ivory and grey

Fun brights!

A beautiful and modern day floral. I love this color combination.

A bronzed basket weave vinyl. This would look awesome on kitchen bar stools. No stress about clean up!

 

Pom-Pom trim!

My favorite fabric... The metallic cheetah was only $24.95 a yard.

A wide range of nail heads.

Come and knock on our door…

I’ve been seeing a lot of images lately of gorgeous doors.  Either they are painted in gorgeous colors, have been covered in fabric, nail head pattens, or gorgeous artworks have been painted on them.  They really are being paid a lot of attention to, and I am loving it.

I am debating about painting the inside frame of my doors in accent colors.  We’ll see and I’ll keep you posted.

Have you done anything interesting to your doors?

What a dramatic entrance to this dining room. I don't think it could get any chic-er than this!

I loooove this! A flat, deep gray door with a pyramid geometric pattern. It's unreal. Image via here

A fun and lively approach to really giving a door some attention! via here.

Isn't this a great idea!? you can't get a more welcoming entrance that that. Image via here.

A true piece of art. Chinoiserie-romantic! Image via here.

Such a gorgeous pattern. For minimalist styled home, these doors really add character and soften it up. Image via here.

A beautiful and chic baby room!

I just came across the fabulous blog of Sarah Catherine Design – and it’s really good.  One of her most recent projects was just posted and love, love, love it. It’s a baby room that’s trendy, youthful and really fun!

Here is the original rendering for the concept of the room. Unreal, right!?

And in real life…. Amazing!  I am crazy about the color combination, the day bed and the piping, and the draperies.

Emily Henderson’s Hot Pink Pursuit

Happy Monday lovelies!  I thought I’d start the week off with the most cheery-hot-pink living room I could find!

Emily Henderson (winner of HGTV Design Star) has serious style.  I hate to say this, but a lot of the designers on HGTV scare me, but definitely not Emily Henderson!  My taste is very similar to hers.  It’s eclectic, feminine and has a lot of vintage thrown in.

I think the living room below is her Los Angeles home.   I love the color of the walls paired with all of the gold accents.  You can tell that there are TONS of flea market and vintage finds every where!

The tufted sofa is so bright and fun, it totally acts like a showstopper. The gold etagre is so fun and a a piece of art on its own.  I wish you could see more of the bar cart in the right corner… it sure does look cute!

The opposite side of the room is toned done with more muted colors, with small accents of hot pink to carry the color story through.  The crystal chandelier is fantatic, and really draws your eye up to check out the amazing ceilng beams.

The sconces, pail pink draperies and the murano glass lamp are absolutely breathtaking.  It’s so feminine and chic in this room with so much eye candy.  I can totally picture a fab girls night here any night of the week!

Make-up Obsession!

I’m not a huge make-up person. Don’t get me wrong – I love the look of make up, but I am not any where near being a pro with application.  BUT – my mom has turned me onto the best product ever. The Laura Mercier Creme Eye Colour. It’s so easy to apply you can use your fingers or a brush, and it gives this all over beautiful shimmer across your eyes.  The color options are versatile and can be worn for daytime or night.

My foyer… WORK IN PROGRESS!!

I’ve been focused on my foyer and it’s still a work in progress but I wanted to share with you and get some feedback.

I knew I wanted a bit of a boho feel, and I knew I wanted a neutral color palette.  The walls were painted a dark gray, I really like it with the contrast of the white doors.  The final steps are to upholster the pair of benches and some accessories for the table.

So, here is where I got everything:  I ordered the Moroccan Wedding Blanket (used for the rug) at Calypso St. Barth.  The Parsons table and the pair of benches are from Casa Victoria in Silverlake.  They have the best vintage pieces!! The gilded haystack lamp was from a random vintage shop for $35!  I couldn’t believe my luck.   The large mirror is from Leslie’s in Long Beach.  That mirror is so heavy, hanging it was not fun.

The Parsons desk needs some accessory love…. I can’t even decide what to put on it, and I don’t want to put something that I don’t love, and the scale needs to be right.

The wicker chair is from Warehouse 1333 in Long Beach, another one of my absolute favorite places for vintage furniture.  It is extremely rare that I leave there empty handed.  I recovered the seat myself with gold fabric, and then the framed picture is a poster that I got in the South of France with my sister.

So, now let’s discuss the benches which desperately need attention.  I’ve been looking for inspiration high and low. I am thinking about doing either a dark teal or navy solid velvet on theem.  But then part of me wants more fun…  But, would that fight the Moroccan wedding blanket?

Here are a few pics that have been saved on my desk top.

I love these, but matching two prints to go with the parsons desk and the morroccan wedding blanket may be too tricky. Image via Good Bones Great Pieces

Animal print could be an option, or too much? Image via Bazaar of Serendipity

I love this pairing of fabrics.... I am just not sure if it will work in my space. image via Pinterest

Feedback would be amazing!! Would love your thoughts on what it needs, what works, what doesn’t…..

xoxo,

Hallie
