"Flair is a primitive kind of style. It is innate and cannot be taught.It can be polished and refined. When a person has flair, a grounding in the principle of design, and self-discipline, that person has the potential of being an outstanding designer."

Bedroom Bliss

I'm always planning my future bedroom once I graduate and get a "big girl" job to afford all the wonderful pieces to make the space. Here are some pictures of bedrooms that I absolutely love and look very similar to the one in my head. I want my bedroom to be chic and eclectic but functional and comfortable. Enjoy!

Grey's Anatomy

Grey is such a great neutral that I love in my wardrobe, but I would have never thought to have it in a room. Grey can be paired with warm and cool colors, and it has a reflective property when paired with any color in a space. Here are some interiors that used grey as the main color, and it looks great, a very subtle charm.

Serene Bedroom.

Tuesday Tip {Coffee and Cocktails}

Coffee tables, or cocktail tables if you are a friend or follower of Dorothy Draper, are an essential piece of an living room. They need to reflect the shape of the room along with the shape of the arrangement of the furniture. Coffee tables usually are between 15"-18" high depending on the seat height of your sofa, and come in many shapes and sizes. Coffee tables unite the conversation area and sometimes can be a statement that tells about the style of the room. Here are a few that make me happy.
The Statement Piece:
Walnut Slab on Bronze base
Hudson Furniture
One of my Personal Favs:
Chelsea Coffee Table
Reclaimed elm with a steel base
Jayson Home & Garden
