I'm guessing the name Candace just carries a divine amount of design talent (loosely referring to the fabulous Candice Olson) but never the less, today's Design Wednesday feature goes to *drum roll please*...Candace Barnes of San Francisco, CA!! Offering some of the sickest selections in Antique furnishings, the Design Studio itself is note worthy. Check it out below.
Custom pieces? They've got you covered. Come on, who wouldn’t want a custom piece unique to their space?
Sooooo Donovan's third birthday was brought in with a bang...well fireworks to be exact at the Magic Kingdom. Other than the expected public melt down here or there, this was by far the best trip to Disney ever.
I can't believe he's getting SOOO BIG, so fast. Tears of joy.
Happy Heart Break Day lovers! We are gathered here to mourn relationships past and idiots present with our tears, tweets, and texts. Ok I’m being a tad melodramatic but the simple fact remains, it’s Valentine’s Day! *Cue fat baby cupid* For those of us celebrating with our sweethearts [;)] congrats and for those of you ringing in Lover’s Eve alone, I assure you...it will be over soon lol. For today’s Tell me About It Tuesday, I thought I’d share something for the guys... 4 Last minute gifts she’ll love.
Buy a $5 journal from walmart and start a "communication journal". On page one, write down all the things you feel about her from emotional to physical. When you present it to her, make sure you tell her it's for "opening our lines of communication. I'll write down all the things I can't express to you in words and vice versa". She'll love that sappy crap...trust me. I've fallen for it. Twice -_-
If every chick flick known to man has taught you nothing, women love romance. A pack of tea light candles literally costs about $5. Run her a bath, light some candles, and play that favorite mix C.D of hers from college. When she comes home tonight, help her remove her bags, jacket..well I shouldn't have to type that out for you.
A woman loves a man that can be vulnerable with her. Dude, watch the chick flick. Suck it up and press play. She'll love that you're willing to cuddle with her minus that whinning most of you achieve by the film's climax.
and finally the flowers. Come on man, $10 will get you a loooooonnngggg way in girl speak.
Ciao, Chessa!: How to Create a Gallery Wall
"A gallery wall is the perfect way to display beautiful and meaningful art and photos in your home. We've been collecting all sorts of art and for obvious reasons we have accumulated hundreds (if not thousands) of photographs over the years. Of course living in New York City we have limited space not only to store such lovely things but also to hang them and so I've definitely gotten creative when it comes to displaying and showcasing my/our favorite pieces.
After many failed attempts at unleashing the interior designer in me (not to mention many damaged walls) I think I have finally nailed down (pun intended) a system that works for me every time. After you have selected your frames and your artwork (more on that below) here are some simple steps for creating your gallery wall in pretty much any room in your home."
