TRAVEL DECOR : PARISIAN APARTMENT

TRAVEL DECOR : PARISIAN APARTMENT

Paris is always a good idea and Parisian decor an even better idea. I recently visited Paris and fell in love with the city of love. The architecture-archaic historic Old World buildings ( I love using the term “Old World” a lot, like a whole lot). Everything about Parisian architecture blows you away!

HOME INSPIRATION

HOME INSPIRATION

The process of redoing a home is much harder than it looks in magazines.  It’s all fun and games while on pinterest and houzz apps until you walk into an actual shop and you can’t find what you were looking for.

TRAVEL DECOR: DIANI

TRAVEL DECOR: DIANI

“Then you will travel, and the decor will move you” -Itch, 2017. Everytime I travel. I marvel at the architecture, interior design and decor of my destination.
