loft living room

Whenever I think of NYC interiors, I immediately imagine a real loft like this one.  DC *tries* to emulate NYC in this regard but really, it’s not the same.  Isn’t this living room fantastic?  I like the endless, white expanses and pressed tin ceiling.  I’m off to NYC for a few days for a girls trip and I can’t wait.  I’m staying at the Gotham and intend to do some wandering, shopping and dining.  Details when I return!

Baked-oatmeal

I eat oatmeal everyday because it's heart healthy.  Let me tell ya..I am soooooo sick of oatmeal!  When I saw this recipe for baked oatmeal, I was immediately intrigued.  It was easy to make and it's delicious.  It's a great option every day or to serve at a brunch.  Enjoy!

art in the foyer

Hallway-art

A couple of months ago, I decided the art in the foyer needed a revamp.  I wanted to brighten up the area because it felt very "blah" with the new paint job and white squares.  While it's still a work in progress, I'm pleased with the results so far. What do you think?  Better before or after?

riveting rooms

You look sexy pool
It's an absolutely gorgeous today.  I want to spend the whole day outside and this pool wouldn't be a bad place to lounge.  The "you look sexy" is part cheesy and part hilarious.  My favorite kind of statement.

too blue?

Blue living room
One thing I realized about my new neutral condo:  my eyes are freaking out because there's no color anywhere! The blue kitchen was a statement.  My rust couch was another one.  Somehow, it all worked together. However, over the last year, I've gradually transitioned to a more neutral palette.  Which I like.  Except I miss my color.  Now, when I look around our living space, I don't feel like it's really me anymore.  As one of my friends recently stated: hello!  if it's your place, there's color.
