My House Dressed up for Halloween

I love Halloween.

I think my love may come from watching
the Martha Stewart shows from the early 90's.
Martha made Halloween decor look so glamorous.

I had a blast decorating my home
for Halloween this year...

I actually caught myself singing Witchy Woman
while carving pumpkins last night.

This is the wreath I created.
I'm hoping to keep most of the brown leaves and feathers,
change it a bit by adding gold touches, and keep it for Christmas :-)

Hope you had fun getting your place ready.

Happy Halloween, friends.

Brave decor move: Black walls

I love color but I haven't definitely mustered the courage to paint a wall black. 

However, I think these look amazingly classic and beautiful, yes?

Would you paint a whole room in black? 
Just one wall? 
No black at all on walls?

Black & White = Mondo of Elegance

I have to admit that I'm addicted to the show Project Runway with Heidi Klum.

This season, I especially like Mondo Guerra's designs. 
I would actually wear most of his creations. 
Especially this beautiful, classic, timeless black and white dress 
in the picture on the right.

I love it.

Fashion and interior design are so closely related to me. 

Black and white decor is so elegant:

Do you decorate with Black and White?
Would you be brave enough to use this bold combination on a large scale?

Have a lovely day,

Me like these new treasures

Thank you, Anthropologie for your new kitchen arrivals. So neat. 
However, I'm weak...I may be tempted to purchase one of these 
just because they are pretty (I don't really need them...somebody stop me!) 
I'm addicted to this place. Darn.

Not today.
Maybe tomorrow.
