If I could be a designer for a day....

I would be Betsy Burnham of Burnham Design. How could anyone not love her work to not want to be her for one day? And really I just want her brain for one day. That's why I love her Instant Space program. All I can say is BRILLIANT! If you are like me, always on a TIGHT budget, you can't afford a brilliant designer like Betsy. But no worries, she offers part of her services at a fraction of the cost. She offers a do-it-yourself custom design service. She will create an inspiration board, fabric/paint swatch book, furniture plan drawn to scale, a detailed shopping list of resources, and an explanation of how to pull it all together.

Cost breakdown:
hallways, entry-ways, powder rooms: $750
dining rooms, bedrooms, home offices, bathrooms: $950
living rooms, kitchens and family rooms: $1250

Below are images of an actual Instant Space inspirational box. It's so cute......I would display the box!!!!

For Sale!

Well, it is time to say goodbye to the Big-D (Dallas, Texas for those of you non-Texans). My husband and I are moving back to my home town of Tyler, Texas which is only 80 miles East of Dallas. I miss the small town feel of Tyler. And I have to say, I am really exciting about moving back! That being said, my wonderful (at least I think it is) home is for sale. So, anyone in the Dallas area looking for a great starter home in Lake Highlands...look right here! We move back November 2nd and are eager to sell our house and make the transition.

This also means I am buying and new house.....which also means REDECORATING!!! I am so excited.....a brand new palette! I can do whatever I want...well almost whatever I want.

I plan on blogging about my my new house as soon as I buy one and begin the process so stay tuned. I know I have been away for a while....but as you can see my world is turned upside down right now.

I just stumbled upon the greatest website Look how great these slipcovers are! They stretch to fit any type of chair, couch, or daybed. And they come in cute patterns too so your not just stuck with the plain jane blue jean or white cover!
Watch the video here on how to use these nifty things.

And look how cute the pillows are too!

Need a quick fix on an ottoman....
