A Little Inspiration…


Today I’d like to try something new and share some inspirational things. 

First is this gorgeous room!  It is at The Ritz-Carlton Residences in LakeTahoe.  The architecture and view is amazing, so that’s always a good starting point.  I love the rustic wood beams contrasting with the modern chandelier over the dining table.   The room is warm and relaxing, with brown wood floors and peach accent tones.  Notice how the coffee table can be separated into mini tables so everyone can have a place nearby for their drink.  I also love the way the modern art was hung low to accentuate the architecture.  This is a place I’d love to live…if it wasn’t for all that snow outside!

Next is a wonderful vacation spot!  It is a Premier Overwater Villa at the St.Regis Bora Bora Resort.  I imagine it has white, flowing bedding and drapery with casual rattan furniture.  However, with a view like that and crystal clear water…who cares how it is decorated!!!


Finally, here is a quote I really like:


          “Success is getting what you want.  Happiness is wanting what you get.”


                – Dale Carnegie


 Since it is Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d include one more picture that always reminds me how much I love my wonderful husband!  Happy Valentine’s Day sweetheart!  I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday with loved ones!
