Decorology

Total Crash Day

Today was a total bust - ugh. Got up this morning at a reasonable hour and made the huge mistake of sitting on my sofa for "just a minute."

 HUGE mistake.

Out like a light... for 5 HOURS

 Unfortunately I'm having more and more of these "crash" days.

 It's not like my to-do list is that unreasonable right?

 • Plan a wedding for 130 people under $10,000.00 (That means a lot of DIY and searching, searching, searching.)

• Buy a home this winter (we're still awaiting our preapproval letter) for under $300,000 in the DC metro area so future hubby can get to work in the city for under an hour, has good public schools for future baby, is safe, has some sort of yard)

 • Complete training to make Remi a therapy dog with Pet Partners - then volunteer with him as a therapy dog handler within the next six months.

 • Build a barn on my parent's farm for future horse. Within the next year, fingers crossed.

 • Launch redesign of Decorology (that's right - it's going to look WAY better soon) and hopefully grow Decorology. Within six months.

• Launch redesign of ashleywhitedesign.com (it's always one's own projects that come last) and continue to grow my web design business. Within six months.

These are just my priority items.

 Okay, so maybe I take on more than I can chew, but who doesn't really? Everyone is insanely busy, and I don't have children yet, so I don't really feel like I have the right to complain yet... sigh. Luckily, everything on my to do list are things I am excited about and looking forward too, I just need waaayyy more hours in each day...

 Serenity now.

Interior designer Mark Sikes' Southern California Home: Open, glamorous, and elegant

Interior designer Mark Sikes' and partner Michael Griffin's home is full of unexpected and wonderful moments of old world Hollywood glam, while still maintaining an open and organic feel.  Check it out below:
Couch in the kitchen?  How genius is that for entertainers.  Just make sure it's a stain proof, easily washed material.  Not as crazy about the pendant lights though...



Super comfy looking daybed in a super serene home library.


All the below pictures are of their devine guest bedroom and bathroom.


I would love for a bed half as dreamy as this to be in my master!


The black and white striped awning outside, as well as the black and white palette in the room makes me think of the book "The Night Circus"

Great mix of eclectic (armoire) and elegant (chair)

How unreal is this bathroom - check out the chandeliers!


Love the shower curtain that looks like drapes.  I can't figure out if that framed black and white photograph is in the shower of just a reflection...

What do you think of this Southern California home?
