I recently moved into a condo with my long time boyfriend and am experiencing the trials and tribulations of designing with a boy in the house. Our kitchen wall has been painted, re-painted and is now primed again. I was thrilled to discover this website on Live Creating Yourself this morning. www.younghouselove.com follows a young couple as they design their first home. Here's a sneak peak.

I have finally accepted the idea that Spring is right around the corner. As a Chicagoan, I remained skeptical for a while. So, in light of the warmest day of the season, I've chosen some Spring fashion items I'm loving right now.
The precious driving moccasin with bow is J. Crew, as is the one shoulder Poplin Bridget dress, the vintage zebra stripe skirt and the Marquee satchel. The ballet flats are Cole Haan.

I've recently come across (and become obsessed with) a blog called Live Creating Yourself. Alaina is absolutely brilliant. This past week she reupholstered a chair in her living room. Inspired by the outcome, I've decided to attack an ottoman in my home office armed with fabric and a staple gun. More to come. Wish me luck!
Here are two fabrics I'm considering. Thoughts?
