before and after - Dublin kitchen

I love the use of the dark wall and accessories to make this boring kitchen really grab your attention! Check out the rest of the apartment here.  What a great vibe!!

perfect lighting for shabby chic interiors

Don't forget to visit me here for further decorating blogs from here on in...

These chandeliers add just the right hit of 'grounding' to complete the spaces.  In your white spaces, consider a bit of dark in the lighting and it will complete the look.  And think unique too - aren't these just?

rustic white house

I can see myself reading in this living room - so perfect and tranquil. 

And in the dining room - it is so effortlessly simple and unpretentious.

green living rooms

Green is such a versatile colour - here you can see it being used in this traditional Kim Coleman designed living room / hallway, and in this very modern and graphic space in a much more vibrant hue.

There is something for everyone when it comes to green.

modern elements

If you want an easy, clean and beautiful fireplace, Modern Elements has the simplest solution.  Check out their site - Modern Elements - to see how simple and gorgeous it can be.  They are clean burning and eco-friendly.  See their website for all the details.

I have had a small canister for years that uses the same burning ethanol these fireplaces take and I love it... and I may just be ready for a 'real' fireplace now that I see how gorgeous the options are!
