Now Open in Arcadia: Park Avenue Beauty Bar

Can I tell you a little secret? I was totally and utterly ecstatic when I came across this amazing little Arcadia treasure.

Park Avenue Beauty and Blow Dry Bar - they do it all!

Blowouts, bronzing, facials, and makeup. NOT to mention the fact that they do it in the most beautiful barbie-esque atmosphere. I am going to have to take a trip there very soon, and not only treat my design appetite.... hmmm :)

Friday Insight

Barn Charm



There's something about wood and a basic nude pallet that makes me feel so comfortable. Although I do enjoy the pops of color and modern decor, when I see or enter a room decorated with rustic wood and incorporated with mixing old and new elements it instantly makes me relax. Calmness. Warming. Joy. This barn is the perfect combination of chic and comfortable.

A little Bit of 80's Splash

I just love these retro BOLD 80's inspired colors in these rooms. Surprisingly, all of these colors are ones that I happen to be partial to lately. Plain coincidence? Probably just good marketing...either way I love how these photos carry the space from simple to simply fantastic with ease. Will you be using any throwback colors in your decor?
