Zillow has released it's top five design trends for 2015 and I am TOTALLY on board.  In fact, I think my exact kitchen faucet is in one of their pictures!  Here's what Zillow thinks is IN and here's what they say is OUT.

Of course, design is all in the eye of the beholder.  If you fill your home with things you love, it'll never go out of style!

In for 2015:

  • Gold fixtures
  • Cowhide
  • Wallpaper
  • Blue accent colors
  • Modern and mid-century modern elements

Out after 2014:

  • Chevron print
  • Bright colors
  • Solid painted accent walls
  • Matching furniture

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...
