Red Gallery Wall

Remember when I took a vote for what color to do the frames for the gallery wall running up our front stairwell?  The votes varied but there was a resounding no on the color red, which was my top choice.

Well, yesterday, I saw that Camila of Effortless Style went for the red Ikea frames and it looks amazing!


Camila of Effortless Style

I am absolutely in love with the way her wall turned out.  It has reignited that fire under me to actually dress up those naked walls in our stairwell.  And I’m going red hot.  I even stopped by Ikea yesterday and bought my first batch of red frames.

I would like to do a combo of photographs and art.  One art piece that I’d love to add to the collection is this beautiful print by UK artist Sarah Walton.


Wish me luck that this project actually gets done.

Happy Friday

Happy Friday everyone!  The entire city of San Francisco has been in such a good mood lately because it is hot, hot, hot here.  The weather is amazing; it is so rare that we actually get to sport summer clothes in this city so it’s really fun when the opportunity comes knocking.  A little someone in my life finally got to wear her summer clothing in the city and she really, really appreciated it –


Enjoy your weekend.  We are off to our ranch this weekend and I couldn’t be more excited.  Don’t you worry about Little she is all set in terms of her ranch attire.  She’s had cowboy boots since she was about a month old –


For those who are going out on the town this weekend, enjoy the Derby De Mayo!
