I’m thrilled so many of you enjoyed the selection of Mr. Adler’s tips! Like I said, the book is, 100 Ways to Happy Chic Your Life, and if you noticed, the last blog post ended at 50. So today, I’d like to include the highlights from the other 50….enjoy!

No. 56 Paint it Black – Up until this book, I’ve had the exact opposite philosophy; “there’s nothing a coat of white paint can’t fix”. Then I started researching black rooms and I’ve completely changed my opinion. I encourage you to do the same.


No. 60 Start from an Unusual Place – Sometimes finding the launching point is the hardest part. Pick something that inspires you, an object, a piece of furniture, a color, art, or your pets hair color, and go from there. The rest will fall into place.

No. 69 Find an Oasis – Whether it be somewhere in your garden or a plane ride away; we all need a happy place.

No. 82  Behold the Outdoor Living Room – As long as its waterproof, the sky’s the limit!

No. 93 Rethink the Bookshelf – I can’t stress this enough. Take everything off and start over, don’t put anything back in the same place and see what happens…


No. 100 – When All Else Fails..Say it with a Pillow


Happy Friday Everyone!
