"When you realize that a beautiful interior has very little to do with objects and a whole lot to do with spirit, general well being and upliftment you find the soul of interior design. If you have respect for your surroundings and everything has it's perfect place you interact with your world differently you carry yourself differently. My father used to say that the state of your surroundings is the state of your mind. Look around your home, let your home be the foundation of your aspiration."

Glorious shades of blue

I have always been a huge fan of the color blue.  Maybe it has something to do with that fact that I am a pisces!  To me there is nothing better than being surrounded in blue.  My house is painted in a gray blue and I have never grown tired of it.  It is still considered one of the trendy colors probably because it is so versatile.  From the lightest gray blue shade to the darkest navy end of the spectrum.  I love them all!  I hope these pictures inspire you to inject a little blue in your home.

I am in love with this kichen!


  1. What's the art of stacking pictures?

  2. A good rule of thumb is to hang them the same width apart on the wall, around two inches works. I always like to lay a grouping on the ground and play around with where each picture looks best. You want to have a balance between smaller and larger pictures. A no fail method is to have black frames with white mats for a gallery look or mix it up with different frames but keep the mats in the same color. Thanks for your question!
