My A-ha Moment

Have you ever had an aha moment?  A moment when you realize you are on track and everything just clicks.  Newell Turner from House Beautiful talked about aha moments at Blogfest and encouraged us to blog about our own aha moment.

My aha moment came to me while decorating our bedroom.  I have design ADD when it comes to my own home.  I just love so many things and appreciate so many styles that sometimes I have a hard time picking what direction I want to go. 

We finally settled on the Riviera rug from Calypso Home...

And a nightstand similar to this dresser at Mecox Gardens..

So we brought them both home and I was really excited and pleased that things were coming together but something was missing!

Then my boyfriend's father(who owns a custom upholstery shop in NY...see here) sent us this crazy modern chair upholstered in leopard.  He was commissioned by Ralph Lauren himself to make the chair, I don't know the whole story but for some reason he didn't want it and we are now the happy owners.

We decided to put it in our bedroom!  And that is when the Aha moment happened...where modern, traditional and a little bit of California casual colided and made our bedroom pop!  It gave me faith that everything was going to come together just fine!



  1. The trick was that you didn't do the matchie-matchie thing. This is a nice combination of pieces that play well together.

  2. Thanks Boss

    Thanks Katherine! I can't do the matchie matchie thing but it is hard to get it right when you don't do matchie!

  3. It really looks chic! Love the mix of patterns and textures! Perfect!

  4. Hi all, here every one is sharing such familiarity, therefore it's fastidious
    to read this website, and I used to pay a quick visit this webpage daily.
