One of the most talked about design books of this so-called, joke of a spring we’ve been having (Happy Monday, by the way),  is ¨Patina Farm¨ by Brooke and Steve Giannetti of Giannetti Home. As a long time reader of Brooke’s blog Velvet and Linen (considered among the Top 10 design blogs in the States), I had a feeling the book was going to be great, but it turned out even better! In little under three years, the architect + decorator power couple created their  my   everyone’s dream home in the charming little art town of Ojai, California and shared with us their story.

For many of us, one of the most fun parts of interior decorating is fabric selection. But it can also be a confusing part, especially when you’re first starting out and have all these different patterns, colors and textures to choose from. Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about fabric and ways to successfully mix them. Like a PRO, that is.

Thanks to Better Homes and Gardens February issue, now we all know how Hollywood super starlet turned billion dollar business woman Jessica Alba sleeps. Ahem, in style of course. BHG gave us a peek into her lovely LA home in which by far my favorite space was her bedroom.

Gilmore Girls fans, have you heard the good news?! Rejoice, Sookie St. James is back! As you may know, Netflix is preparing a revival with four episodes in the works directed by the show’s original creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino. Most of the cast will be returning to Stars Hollow and as of this Friday (after some scheduling conflicts), Melissa McCarthy is officially a part of the team! Truth be told, I could never imagine the show without bubbly, funny, dream bestie Sookie.
