Colorado Photo Diary















My sister Erin and I recently visited Colorado. It was such a beautiful place to visit and a really fun work/play trip!
We went down to work a wedding together; she is a photographer and as most of you already know, I am a makeup artist.
These are some of my favourite photos I took on the trip, to see the full post write up I did for Coco & Cowe, click here.

Designing Around a Piece of Art – The Bar Cart


For my final space I have chosen another Andy Warhol print, the Perrier prints are some of my favorite Warhol prints that can be found on Invaluable.com.
I liked how bright and vibrate the colors where in this particular print. I thought it would look great behind a bar cart.

I love the look of bar carts in homes, I think they are also a  fun piece that you can switch up from time to time especially over the holidays or change of season.

I have kept this space fairly simple to really let the print be the focal point.

I chose to have two different chairs because I think it is fun to switch it up and it is less traditional which I personally like. Even though the chairs are different I think they still complement each other.

If you have any questions, please let me know in a comment, thank you for reading and I hope you all have a nice weekend!

Designing Around a Piece of Art – Living Room




As I mentioned last week I have teamed up with Invaluable.com, which is the world’s largest online auction marketplace of fine and decorative art, antiques, collectibles, and estate sales.

I have picked 3 painting and have designed 3 different spaces around them. The first piece of art I chose was an Andy Warho Mao print.
The second piece of art I have chosen is a black and white abstract oil painting by Angelo Trinidade.

For this painting I have designed a living room, since the painting is black and white I decided to have fun with colors, prints and different textures.

I have always been drawn to abstract paintings, especially large ones. I love my gallery wall but I also think it would be fun to one day just have one really large abstract painting in either the dining room or living room as the main focal point.

If you have any questions, please let me know in a comment and thank you for reading!

Designing Around a Piece of Art - The Nook



I have teamed up with Invaluable.com, which is the world’s largest online auction marketplace of fine and decorative art, antiques, collectibles, and estate sales.
I have picked 3 paintings and have designed 3 different spaces around them. 

The first piece of art I have chosen is an Andy Warhol Mao print; it is an original edition silk-screen on 100% acid free archival museum board.
If any of you follow me on Instagram you would know how much I love Andy Warhol. I love the colors in this print and I like how bright and vibrant it is.

For this painting I designed a nook, a lot of us have these awkward areas/ corners in our homes and often don’t know what to do with them or how to decorate them. Sometimes all you need is a great piece of art, some simple furniture and some great accessories.

For this area I chose to go on the more black and white side as I think the print is bright enough and as much as I love color I sometimes think a pop of it is enough. I feel it is always important to balance out color with black, white and neutrals (I think leopard print is a neutral!).

I love this print and I think it would look great in a lot of homes. I will post the other spaces I have designed in the coming weeks.

If you have any questions, please let me know in a comment and thank you for reading!
