"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."

You may be thinking that I have a strange facination with Gossip Girl but really I don't. Okay, maybe a little, but between the fashion and the interiors it's a no brainer for me. I think it was last week where I was tuning in on Monday night and saw the most amazing butterfly wall behind Serena's (Blake Lively) bed. I had to do some digging and find out more about it. I have been searching since that episode and didn't have a lot of luck but today I finally found some info on the symphony of butterflies that covered the wall so beautifully. Yes I have become very passionate about these lovely creatures. The man behind the butterflies is Paul Villinski. He is an artist that makes them from crushed beer cans off the streets of New York. I'm amazed at how delicate and fluid they look when installed on a wall.
I am a wife, mother, and interior decorator who is obsessed with anything and everything involving home decorating and design. This has been a passion for as long as I can remember. I am thrilled to be sharing projects and things that inspire me right here from my living room in South Surrey, BC Canada
