OohLaLa bring me some serenity!

I was very inspired by Domino Magazine's online piece called Serenity for a Small Home. I love this look for a small space. I think I may just try to apply this to my cluttered little space this weekend. Check it out:

One up on you!

I love One Up Wall Graphics. It's a chic and modern way to make your pad fun. I found them while browsing the Poppytalk Handmade Market (do check it out, it's awesome). One Up Wall Graphics is run by a man with a dream, "that everyone should be able to personalize their own space with art." From one artist to another I couldn't agree more. Aren't they fantastic! Everyone should have a little whimsy in their life:

Finally an easy way to cancel catalogs!

I am overwhelmed with the amount of catalogs I get on a weekly basis. Every weekend I think, I really have to cancel these, this is ridiculous, this is so bad for the environment...but it takes so much work to call each one. I prayed for a miracle that they would all just go away. It's not easy for me to recycle them (even though I do anyway) . You see Beverly Hills doesn't have recycling bins because from what I hear it attracts vagrants (don't even get me started on that issue, let's see reversing global warming and the destruction of planet earth by providing recycling vs. dirty harry taking my water bottles out of the trash so he can eat....yeah, I'm missing something here. It seems to me like recycling bins would be a win win for everyone). Then this morning on the today show there it was! My miracle! A website called Catalog Choice!

You can pick and choose which catalogs you want to keep and which ones you want to get rid of. If your catalog is not there you can suggest it for them to add. You only have to enter your personal information once and the companies have to abide by the request. It's awesome! Check it out.

Drew & the Medicinal Pen

My first video on my blog! This is my friend Drew's video. He shot the video, wrote the lyrics and the music. I think he is super talented and had to share it with you! I can't wait to see his first movie. You may recognize something at the end that was featured on my coasters. Enjoy!


I loved the movie ATONEMENT and wanted to find images that reflect the feeling of the movie in modern day. It was so beautiful and the performances were amazing. I highly recommend it! Love that James McAvoy!I found some lovely inspiration fromHOUSE TO HOME:
