I love high fashion, almost as much as I love design. Thus, I am taking my love of staging and design, and "spinning off" my design business. It is my great pleasure to introduce my latest venture, the BADA BADA BLING Boutique! If you are on Facebook, I hope you will stop by and "LIKE" us. You will want to witness and be a part of our upcomming launch!

Like staying stylish and on trend? Like being able to create a high end look, without breaking the bank? If so, I have a fun project for you! I bought this lamp base and shade at a second hand store. When I found them, I saw the diamond in the rough (and let me reiterate the rough part!) This lamp base was dingy and was and utterly unflattering. The lamp shade was just basic and boring, though, it had a good shape to it. I bought a can of spray paint (they come in an array of designer colors now!) and some decorative ribbon. For the low cost of $10, I was able to create a fun, trendy piece, that required very little time and money!

I have long held that design is in the DETAILS! While perusing paints at Menards, I came across this photograph in a Dutch Boy paint ad. I absoultely love the trim work. Eager to take the inspiration from this photograph and put my own Kat's Eye spin on it!

There is something to be said about a crown! Whether you are a little kid, or even an adult, there is something so fun and enjoyable that comes from putting on a crown and adopting an air of royalty (even if it's only for a fleeting second LOL!) So, why should our home's be any different! Adding crown molding adds such a lasting impact to a room and increases the home's overall re-sale value. Even if you have no plans to ever sell your home, this is one design detail that adds such intrinsic and lasting value. Not to mention the fact that it is a pretty easy project to take on! Long live the CROWN (molding!!!!)
Whether you are cellebrating Valentine's Day with a significant other, special someone, or, having an anti-Valentine's party, this decorative, red and white candy arrangement is sure to be a hit and a sweet treat for any cellebration!

Familiar with inexpensive roller shades? They are simple, yet cost effective and do their job, right? But, what if they could not only do their job, but look pretty too! Functional and aesteically pleasing, is always a win-win, as far as I am concerned. To create this look, all you need is wallpaper and a roller shade! Wallpapers are available in every color, texture, print etc. making the windows of possibilities, endless! Wallpaper pictured is by Gracie Studio (www.graciestudio.com)
