Party Dress


This dress would be so wonderful and
magical to wear to a fun holiday party! 
Paired with a fabulous pair 
of black sparkly pumps and some 
big hair; you'd be so nerdy chic

Hawaiian Paradise and a New iphone App

My trip to Hawaii was such an amazing adventure
and it is hard being back in the daily grind of work. 
We were on the island of Oahu, home to the North Shore,
great snorkeling, wonderful waterfalls as well as stunning 
views and landscapes. I thought I would share some of my 
favorite pictures from the trip (all taken from my iphone-it 
was so easy to just snap and go) and I am excited about the quality
of the pictures. I thought they would all be blurry but they 
are all pretty cool. I used the app on my iphone called "camera+" and 
I highly recommend it to anyone who takes pictures with their iphone.

Have a Seat Stay a While

We are working on a living room for one of our projects. 
This house is in the country.
We're in the process of pulling it all together.

The relaxed feel to these interiors are so appealing. 
The comfy sofas in white and pretty florals have a slochy feel
which says, "take a seat and stay a while"... 
The beautiful beams, unpainted wooden doors add to this feel.

I am Thankful For...

I am so thankful for my family and friends this Thanksgiving and 
gathering at our house to help cook the dishes! It is so nice to sit down 
as a family around our dining room table and share a beautiful meal. 
I am of course so blessed by my happy, healthy family.
I am so thankful for all of the traveling I will be 
doing in the next couple of months. Joey's family has 
invited me to Hawaii for the trip of a lifetime and I will be going
 home for Christmas to be with my family!
I'm thankful for my cozy apartment in San Francisco. 
There is nothing like opening the front door to a
 space that is all your own, filled with people and things you love!

Favorite Dining

With the holiday season right around the corner we have dining rooms on our radar.We all wish we were going to be meeting in the dining room for a festive Thanksgiving meal all together. But as everyone knows we are all spread over the country. Missing each other a great deal! So we have put together a collection of beautiful dining rooms we all would love to be together in. Be it large and grand or an intimate and cozy dinner by the fire place. This year Cassandra will be hosting her first ever Thanksgiving and Melissa is off in Hawaii and Les is 
home here in the North Country with us from her first semester at college.
These dining rooms have a style and grace all their own.
