Dream Catchers. Yes Please.

I went on a brief hunt for dream catchers online for this post and I must say it's not an easy find in interior photos. I'm so curious why it's tough to find. Because who wouldn’t want a dream catcher? It’s like needing a reason to buy bubbles. Happiness. I once went on a year long quest to find the ultimate dream catcher. And then I found one on my first date with the love of my life. No doubt my life has been better ever since. So it could either be the dream catcher or love. Either way, both are essential.

Cat. Dog. Dream catcher. Can't go wrong.

Backyard Escapes

Happy Labor Day! Hello, welcome and good day! Funny, must be something about Labor Day. I started this blog on Labor Day a couple years ago. Here I am, picking it up again, dying to blast forward with full steam and passion.

Since it 'tis the season for good weather still, I wanted to highlight outdoor space. One of the most spectacular things that makes your place way better is making a fab outside hangout spot. I  mean colorful, sparkly, comfortable, aesthetically pleasing zones where you can relax or whatever. It’s important to get outside. So many of us crank away all day in an office. We need to get out.  If you don't have the space, don't fret. I'm sure you live in a pretty place where you have easy access to gardens and patios. My balcony was a fire escape for the longest time. That said, one of the things that makes life a little more sweet is your surrounding environment. It’s the little things like plants, colors and twinkle lights.  BUT, if you are so lucky to have an outdoor space, I couldn't encourage you enough to take advantage and make it a fab place to hangout. So many fun things can be done outside!

Hope these inspire. Enjoy! 

I get that not everyone has a lake in their backyard. Take this in anyways! Def deserves a tip of the hat.

I love the concept behind this.

K. I'm not kidding, no photographer could possibly capture the magicalness of this fire. This is the real deal, Friend. If you want some mind blowing action, check out this DIY. It's no joke. I can't vouch for the formula from this site, but I have seen what psychedelic pine cones out of a box from a campsite store and it's amaze. Fire still doesn't cease to capture our hearts. Still just as cool, even if we aren't cave people.

Fall Colors: Falling for Orange

Orange. It’s definitely one of my favorite colors. It’s just such a cool shade for the home. When I walk into a home and it’s orange, in my mind I’m like, “Yeeeah, Lady’s got confidence.”  Even if they don’t, I’m definitely thinking they got it. And style.  Even just a touch of orange is very chic. I’m pretty much loving every piece of orange in these rooms. Especially the one with the blue velvet sofa. SUPERB!

In Feng Shui, orange is known for being a color to promote sociable encounters. It enhances conversations and fun times in your space. (Probably why I think Lady has confidence! She talks more!) J

Are you an orange type of person?

Fabulous Fridays: Get in the Halloween Decorating Spirit

Halloween is round the bend! Spooky spooky! What a fun time of year. I am telling you, I think starting about now is probably my favorite time of year. No more summer vacations for me, so I just uped this to my favorite time of year spot. I’m a huge fan of fun and creative décor for Halloween. A little creepy and a little creative touch around your home to honor this time of year is awesome.  I am super into the funny and spooky part of the Halloween. The sexually oppressed part where people want to express themselves one day that year, not so much. Hopefully one day, the ladies and gents will leave their Little Bo Peep delicates in the closet.J Here are a few home decorating inpspirations for your home. Enjoy!

WHalloween fun factW
So back in the day, Pagans used to burn jack-o-lanterns on Samhain to ward off evil spirits. Samhain, being on the night of the 31 of October. Not to name names, but cultures, religions plunked other holidays, such as Halloween on top of Pagan holidays to crowd out and overshadow Pagan celebrations. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Christmas and Halloween, but come on dudes, that’s mean. Anyways, if you are interested in a little history of the jack-o-lantern, Better Homes and Gardens has a very interesting (and short) article.

How do you like to decorate for Halloween?

Cozy-Glamorous Living Rooms: The Best Kind

There is nothing I love more than cozy and glamorous. Do I want it both ways? Yes I do. And these living rooms are proof that you can have a fun and glam room, but at the same time kick up your feet in sweats. Or whatever you like to kick up your feet in. I have to say bright colors and sparkles do it for me every time. Of course, white rooms are lovely when done right (a little touch of gold, please!). JThese little dollops of gorgeousness make for some pretty glamorous and cozy rooms! Don't you think?

If you don’t want to invest in a zebra couch, but want to try the print, I love the idea of getting zebra table clothes! What a cool idea. Perfect for your sassy side.J

Do you like a little glamor in your living room? What sort of living room do you prefer?

Craft Space for Crafty People

When it starts getting colder in the fall season, what’s more fun than to be inside and be crafty? When I was a kid I would fall IN LOVE with friends' craft spaces. Looking through all their papers and ribbons was divine! Whether you have the space of a whole room or just a corner spot, few spaces are just as special. If you are a creative person and like making things, it’s important to make space for that. These craft spaces are super fun and colorful. Sit back and enjoy the view of these wonderful little spaces.

Fall Colors: Falling for Red

Aaah the lovely red room. Not to be confused with red rum.J Ok, tasteless joke out of the way! You know, I have not seen too many red rooms in person, and I do not know why! Look at these beauties! Red is beautiful and vibrant, and appears to make any home look fab. Red seems to amp up the energy and vibrancy of a room, if you ask me. I think everyone needs a red room in their home, at one point in life, at the very least. Enjoy!

Red represents the fire element in Feng Shui. Fire brings high energy into the home. It’s a good color to use for forging your career ahead and making a good reputation for yourself. Red is also a great color for the home if you want a little extra joy, passion, excitement and sexy time! J

You interested in a red room?
