Fresh ~



 Lately, I’ve been drawn  to room designs 

 with bits of  bright color and touches

of glimmering GOLD! Gold is SO glamourous  and clear

color brings such energy to a room!

 I’m am also currently obsessed with the

notion of the UN-decorated room. It’s an eclectic mix,

that is LOW on matchy-matchy  decor and 

HIGH on imagination!  With that in mind, I



launched my seasonal decor switch (again!!). You know the one, where I beg,

borrow and shop from home, to give our rooms a



fresh  new feel for

 free! Well almost  free, I did pick up a cool new



side table! LOVE the chunky GOLD chain base and white

marble top! Hey, a girls gotta have some fun,

right? Anyway, here’s what transpired:

A few small, existing  tables were moved from here to there…



This corner table, now holds a collections of family photos…

and this English ‘hunt’ style table, now sits off the 

kitchen and works beautifully serving up a



colorful continental






I pulled in, framed

vintage luggage tags



as artwork  and a 

simple antiqued mirror.



I borrowed  some some fluffy white






(Haley’s Cottage)  from the 

living room and



 B & W hounds-tooth from the

media room. I picked up a gold mesh



number for glam  extra seating.



I set up a

fancy bar on our sideboard.



It’s a collections of pretty

glassware, edged in GOLD and



glamour. Love the recycled Chambord  bottle.

Next, I went on a home-wide hunt for color & gold. When I came up

 SHORT on both, I had to get




creative. I used bright books…

 jewelry boxes and



 graphic picture frames to add some freshness

and then I painted the town




 just a few golden highlights, actually, but

AVA, our Golden Retriever, looked 

worried :)  I brought in fragrant fresh  flowers



 and greenery…

Inexpensive place mats add a bright Moroccan vibe 





 I love the the of string of  pearl lamps,

borrowed  from the living room & entry!




I added even more color with natural,

edible  arrangements of fresh



citrus and a pretty, gold framed vintage hour



glass print, from a

childhood friend. You see…

It’s TIME for another Girls Night In at

 our house! The theme…

‘Simply Citrus’…Can’t wait!

Our rooms have a fun new energy and a


fresh eclectic mix.

AND it didn’t cost  me much…to undecorate,
