Picking the perfect marble

Picking the perfect marble Every time we complete a project, the dream of having a fully-renovated house inches a little closer.  Of course, I know we'll never be totally done, but I can say the upstairs is looking pretty fabulous so far.

Right now, we're tackling a small renovation in the upstairs bath.  We're leaving the shower and tub enclosure, but adding new tile, a new vanity, custom curtains, a stunning Restoration Hardware light fixture, a fresh coat of paint and some fun vintage accessories.

I went with a deep navy blue paint to add drama.  Now, we're deciding which marble tile and curtain fabric will work best with the eclectic look I hope to achieve...

Fashion Friday: Flower Headbands and Floral Crowns for Festival Season

Courtesy: Callina Marie Festival season is upon us and there's no hotter accessory than flowers for your hair, thanks in large part to music and fashion muse Lana Del Rey. Whether you go for a headband or crown, bold buds or a simple twist, the floral touch is a perfect accent for your festival attire!  Last summer, my beautiful and talented sister-in-law put this trend to the test at her California wedding, with smaller crowns for the bridesmaids and large white roses for her.  As the lead stylist and owner of Paper Doll Salon, she knows a thing or two about pulling off trends and the result was stunning. Here are some of my favorite looks, along with some additional links and DIY resources if you feel adventurous enough to make one yourself!
