Halloween is almost here and it will be but a ghostly memory just as quickly, soon after it will be time to think about decorating for the holidays.

Pottery Barn
No clue how or where to start, consider stopping in for a decorating class at your local Anthropologie or Pottery Barn Store for tips on trimming the tree and setting the table.

You'll be happy you did, bonus, stores like Pottery Barn give up to 20% off if you shop that day in the store. Let me know if you know of any other stores offering design classes this holiday season.

Hey all, it feels like forever since I've had a moment to breathe, let alone sit down to write a new post. Since my last installment, Enlightened Entry, my White Rock client's remodels has gone FULL FORCE.

 I also have a new client in the neighborhood and a blast from the past e-design client. On top of all that, all I can think about is the impending Austin City Limits Music Festival. We all know music fests mean one thing, Hippie Festival Fashion...time to pull out the flame stitch and fringe.

These patterns, brought back to life by names like Missoni, have been turning my head so much that I've got whiplash. It manifests itself in many different ways, herringbone, chevron, flame stitch... Whatever you want to call it, you've got to have it. Here are some great accessories that you can add to any room in your home, and don't forget Poochie!

I have become recently obsessed with my entry space, obviously because this is the first area you see when entering a home. I have been combing through images to find the most realistic and doable entry ways I can find, PLUS a few items you can add to yours this weekend. Cheers!

I wanted to talk about this thorn in my side, the coffee table. It's unavoidably in the middle of the room in everyone's home and it becomes the catch-all spot for everyone's cell phones, empty cans, keys, wallets and remote controls, just to name a few. We would all love if our coffee could look like perfection at all times...

But in the real world, they don't! Lets take a look at a 3 quick ways to fashionably dress up and hide the most common culprits.

 Clear off your magazines, mail, remote controls and all of the other things that don't belong, and store them in a tray, basket or a chest underneath.
