Veterans, Poppy and Armistice Day

Our family reunited.
What a special day to give thanks and remember all our Veterans - 11/11/11.

I am so proud of my husband and the thirteen years he served in the Navy, and now he continues to serve in the Navy Reserves.
Thank you to all Veterans and the sacrifices you make.

Our First hug in 7 months.

What a proud day! - Love you hubby. x

The Tides Style - Miami

The Tides - Kelly Wearstler Interior Design

I would love to be a fly on the wall at Interior Designer Kelly Wearstlers studio. To me, she is today's most daring and exciting trend setter. She mixes all kinds of patterns, textures and decades to create some jaw dropping rooms. One of my latest favorites is the lobby area of The Tides Hotel in Miami. The walls maybe the only plain thing in this room, from the sculptural chairs to the tufted sofa.. everything has a Wonderland type feel to it. Altogether the look feels both contemporary and traditional. I love how she plays with a multitude of materials within her room and then keeps the floor plan symmetrical for a cohesive and dramatic lobby area. Here's my attempt below..... it looks better up close! If your looking for a Wearstler style selection of furniture and accessories, check out Zinc Door for their amazing selection.
