This is an example of a virtual floor plan I just completed for a lovely customer that is moving into a new house in San Jose.
We did this plan 100% virtually with photographs and room dimensions.
If you'd like to purchase a similar virtual floor plan you will receive a 3D image of the room/s and collage of products I will source for your room.
We can also rearrange what you already own and give you a brand new look.
No matter how small your budget, together we can create a room you will be proud of!

Cost per room is $75 for the virtual collage 

$125  per room for virtual design and collage

Happy Memorial Day weekend. Thanks for all the sweet comments in the last few days. They really make my day!!

I am inspired...

I recently finished a blogging class run by Holly of Decor 8 if for some crazy reason you haven't seen her blog please go look you will love it!!
The class was a great experience and I learned a lot about blogging and myself !
It actually motivated me to sign up for a new design class this summer at my near by community college.

While in this class I was introduced to a lot of very talented bloggers. I wanted to share with you a handful of blogs I am inspired by:

DomestiKatedLife this sweet blog is written by Kate. She writes about interior design and reality T.V. It is a fun blog to read if you follow the Real Housewives or The Hills.

acreativemint this blog is so soothing. Leslie is an interior designer, architect and artist ( I think she is good at everything). I seriously can't wait till she starts selling her art and photography.

Inkonmyfingers this photography blog is written by Susannah Conway. It is stunning. She also teaches an online photography course. She also has a great etsy shop, seriously go look!

DressDesignDecor a wonderful mix of fashion and interior design. Daniella is a girl after my own heart. One of my favorite recent posts yellow meet coral

Gathering Spriggs a gorgeous blog written my Heather Thompson of Nashville. She actually wrote a post for Mother's Day gifts today and well... I bought the floral bag and not for my mom :) . Take a peek you'll love her blog!

We wear short shorts...

Shorts Part 1

Well ladies it is short season!
I thought I'd give a couple of tips about the different short lengths available to you.

3 inch are the best if you have wonderful young legs.
They lengthen the leg, keep that in mind if you have short or long legs.

5 inch these are my favorite. Long enough to cover your upper thighs still really lengthen the leg.

7 inch great for all most everyone appropriate for 50+ and teens. Good for any leg length and hide upper thigh problems.

10 inch these are best for people with long legs. Then tend to shorten the leg. This length is appropriate for some work environments they even sell this length in suit separates.
If you have short legs, either wear a wedge heel or avoid this length.

My personal favorite is the 5 inch and my favorite place to buy my shorts is J.Crew they are a little more then Old Navy but they fit really well and look great for years.

I will do some short outfits later this week to check back!

Peasant Shirt Trend

One of my favorite summer trends is the peasant shirt, these tops are available everywhere.
