Written by on 9th April 2014 in Blog POSTS with 0 Comments

I’m working on a guys home office. He loves his dog, music, gaming and cycling….pretty well rounded activities that I can draw inspiration from…Sorry ladies he’s married:) I found these rock art posters while researching another project and I knew I had to get them for his space! Etsy never fails to inspire and impress me and these are from a shop in England called Standard Designs. Pic is the link.

tUSEDay VICTORIA – Used Victoria Pick of the Week

Written by on 8th April 2014 in Blog POSTS with 0 Comments

This week on Used Victoria I spotted a crazy good deal on a little brass and glass table with wheels. If you are trying to achieve a glam look on a budget these are the kinds of pieces you need to find. I have shown two good examples of how a versatile piece like this can be put to work at home. Pic is the link as usual.  Beautiful photos from Lonny Magazine

Urban Secrets and Hidden Treasures

Written by on 30th March 2014 in Blog POSTS with 0 Comments

I bought a little happy birthday to me gift a few weeks ago and I just got it framed.  This awesome and gritty photo of  three Buffalo Gals will grace a wall of my new home office (if I find the time to move in!) and I could not be happier with the way they turned out.  The unsigned mural was exposed in the 1970′s when a building was torn down in downtown Iowa City… and it became a hidden treasure once again when the new building was erected. Cool hey? Once I’m moved in, come by and see them for yourself. Thanks to the great peeps at Opus Victoria  for their great service as always.

American Dream Builders – Sunday

Written by on 22nd March 2014 in Blog POSTS with 0 Comments

I have been looking forward to this new show and this weekend is the premiere. It’s called American Dream Builders, on NBC.

This new reality series showcases the talents of the most accomplished designers and home builders in America by pitting 12 worthy contestants against one another in a high-stakes competition designed to push everyone’s creative reach. The show will celebrate creativity and style while revealing magazine-worthy home transformations.

With each weekly episode, two teams will take on a brand new project and be asked to redesign and renovate the space from the inside out – all in a matter of days. From Spanish to Tudor to midcentury modern, the designers will be expected to produce sweeping home renovations that bring a fresh, modern sensibility while remaining true to the home’s innate charm and design characteristics.

Another Design Plan – Nailed It

Written by on 20th March 2014 in Blog POSTS with 0 Comments

Every time I meet with a new client I am so excited to get my ideas down and share them ASAP.  You can imagine me at the consultation…arms waving around…heart pumping…I really do LOVE my job!  And it’s so amazingly rewarding when I hear back from clients that they loved it.  I recently met with a couple and did this board for them and they sent me such a super nice note saying I absolutely “nailed it”. As if that didn’t make my week. Their style is rustic modern with lots of ethnic influences and I tailor each of my plans to every individual taste and lifestyle. I can do the same for you,…what’s your style?

tUSEDay VICTORIA – Used Victoria Pick of the Week

Written by on 17th March 2014 in Blog POSTS with 0 Comments

This week on Usedvictoria.com I spotted another modern marvel for my tUSEDay VICTORIA Pick of the week. I like this vintage teak desk as a bedside table because it’s only 29 3/4″ high. A simple basket below, or may a dog bed?  depending on the size of your best friend of course. Pic is the link
