Master Bedroom Redo

Is it possible to nest without being pregnant?
This is what I’ve been asking myself since I decided 2013 would be the year that we would start phase 2 of home renovations/remodeling/general facelifts. Although I feel like our house is definitely a home, we want it to portray more of our personalities, so we are looking for more art for the walls, spunkier furniture and accessories to spruce things up a bit in certain rooms.

I am currently focusing on the living room, but the bedroom is next up on the plate. Right now, our bedroom is very dark and masculine. Basically: not us. We wanted to make it a little lighter and brighter, and the hubs has been nice enough to let me add some more feminine touches. Here is a guide I’ve been working with to try and decide on aesthetic and I decided to share it with all of you in case you are also looking for something similar for any room in your home; new or old.

So back to that question. Nesting: only a phenomenon while pregnant? I vote no. What do you think?

Halloweenie!

October 2nd, 2012 | Posted in Home by Meli

It’s that time of year: HALLOWEEN!
My absolute favorite holiday is just around the corner, so Casa Melificent is already slowly making its metamorphosis into Spook Central. Nothing makes me happier than to pull out that box full of goodies and start putting them around the house. We are nowhere near done, and I definitely want to tackle some of those awesome Halloween DIY’s floating around Pinterest, but for now, it’s a good start.

Do you love Halloween? What Halloween projects are you most looking forward to work on?

Lovable Friday!

1. Trina Turk for Banana Republic

I spotted this awesome collection thanks to the dear Rosy of Accidental Sexiness! It’s so beautiful, fun and summer! My favorites are the assymetrical bold print dress to the left & the white crisp blouse paired with the black and white pencil skirt. Can you say gorgeous?? It’s the perfect ensemble for those lazy summer days strolling on Lincoln Road. Summer dreamin’ for real.

Console Table

January 19th, 2012 | Posted in Home, Personal by Meli

I wish I could post as much as I want to, but right now I’m in the trenches of studying. I am at the critical less-than-2-weeks mark until my certification exam, which means I do little of anything except stare at words I hope will make more sense to me by January 31st.

Anywho, in an attempt to fill the void, here is a shot of our new console table (from West Elm found via Craigslist for a fraction of the cost) and it’s fun little new member, Ollie the Octopus (just made that up on the spot), who was rescued from a life in ZGallerie captivity. Isn’t he sweet? We hope to continue filling up the table with more fun, Sanchez-like decor pieces – along with the rest of the house! Baby steps for now ;)

CasaIdeas Blogger Event

October 25th, 2011 | Posted in Home, Local by Meli

I was so happy to be invited to CasaIdeas‘ blogger event last week where both myself and my lovely friend Marisol from Modishly Delish received a private tour of the store’s new fall collection. CasaIdeas originated in Chile, and Miami’s Sunset Place location marks the first in the United States due to its melting pot of Latin cultures. What I love the most about the company is that they are not afraid to play with color, something I can relate to myself. The new collection showcases beautiful fall colors and designs inspired by the forest, which can also be seen in their store decor.
