Temporary Love Seat Cover

Over this Thanksgiving holiday I was expecting my family to come into town for the weekend. My guest bedroom is a mess! Meaning it has almost everything in there but the kitchen sink to make it into a NY apartment! Okay, maybe not that bad, but It’s turned into my mothers personal closet/dressing room. Long story short cleaned it up as best as I could but I had to deal with the elephant in the room. Picture below.

So this is what I ended up doing.IMG_3177.JPGIMG_3179.JPGIMG_3178.JPGTo secure the bottom and the sides I simply used some push pins to hold it in place. Now that the holidays are over looking at the fabric it gives me an idea that I just might use it to reupholster it sometime soon. For now I’ve gotta get back to my day job…transforming people with their beauty thru hairstyling.
Thanks for reading and see you guys again soon! Please leave any feedback or I for that might inspire or I can possibly help with.

SORRY, I’M ALREADY TAKEN

When was the last time you looked to Craigslist for furniture pieces?! Did you know its still a great place to look for hidden gems. I found this beauty below on the site, as excited as I was to be the potential owner someone else got to it before I did. Whomp Whomp!
20131024-191214.jpgI have been looking so long for a queen headboard (+ footboard), to update my bed. The price was well in my budget ($25). My loss is now someone’s gain. I’m going to have to keep a close eye on the site to make sure I don’t miss another gorgeous find.

Here are a few of my tips on what I would’ve done, if I got to it first! Because my side tables are black and the room theme is romantic with a touch of glam.

– Change the wood stain to a high gloss black.

I love the rattan inserts however, I would’ve like to show off the line details of the headboard. –

– Replace it with some pops of color, like this:

There’s No Place Like Home…& Office Design

Sorry I’ve been m.i.a. again. So much has happened as usual. I’ve moved back home to Connecticut. And boy has it been challenging (in a good way). I’m continuing my career as a hairstylist and now interior decorator. I’ve recently been inspired to decorate an office space for a friend. Who told me, “I’m multi-talented.” Thanks S! Great way to welcome me back into something else I love doing… Her job she says is boring but it’s something she loves to do. Her job consist of bookkeeping and tax preparation so why not make a boring job into a fun comfortable atmosphere to welcome you?! Here’s some before pics.

20130507-130421.jpg I purchased this rug off of Craigslist for a great price. The colors from the rug incorporate the colors from the walls & wood floor. Up next a glass door storage cabinet for all her office supplies. Inside will showcase colorful storage containers to (hide) hold confidential documents. Which will tie into her colorful bright personality.
