Eclectic is so Electric

I have seen many different decorating styles in homes in my life and so many were so much fun.
Being blessed to grow up with a mom who is a very talented decorator was also such a thrill all the time.  Her decor choice was usually formal English and French traditional but she really knew how to put it together and make it look cozy.  And I do have to say the best things about her decorating were to me the found vintage pieces.

Being raised in that environment along with traveling extensively through Europe and some Arab countries, I came to find that all these experiences influenced the way I saw aesthetics in the home.

To hunt, find and be inspired in your life is so very key in helping you put together what your house should look like and what type of design would represent that the best:  Eclectic.

The key to this is to fill your house with your memories of your childhood, homes that you lived in and loved, influences of travel, the influences of others decor tastes that you admired, your travels aboard and of course your favorite colors..

I found this incredible image of a room where the theme was cream and definitely eclectic.

Enjoy and think about it....It is very inspiring if you do.

Twist It Up With a Vintage Scarf for Spring

One of the best way to use a scarf is to use it to hold your glasses.
Reading glasses, big vintage sunglasses, you name it.
Instead of having to put those glasses down somewhere and run the risk of losing them, use one of those fabulous colorful 50s, 60s, 70s vintage scarves...or really any scarf for that matter.
Wrap it around your neck and knot it at the end in the front and stick your glasses inside the knot.
Voila, a stylish vintage scarf glasses holder.
Absolutely perfect.

Chanel Image Captures It All.

This fashion image is of Coco Chanel models....  When you look at this, you think 50s, 60s and the elegance of fashion.  Even if you want to be casual, there is always something elegant about wearing vintage clothing...And these silhouettes are so very timeless.

This image inspires me to dance, to paint, to be a "lady", to socialize, to wear vintage clothing and accessories, to take creative photographs and to embrace the fact that fashion is quite delightful and fun.
