Remember the fun and excitement of the circus when you were a kid?  How about those extremely dusty questionable carnivals that popped into town out of nowhere…with glowing neon lights, and the lingering smell of popcorn and corn dogs perfuming the night air. These pop-up carnivals were always positioned right off the highway, brightly displayed, and meant to be seen. You could always count on the creaky cheap rides, seeing cute boys, the blaring loud rock music, and a creepy guy named Earl who let you go a few extra times on the Tilt-a-whirl! Whatever your memories of the circus are they always seem to invoke a feeling of childhood fun, bold colors and of course cotton candy. This Circus

Many people love to look at cool spaces but don’t often take a chance when it comes to their own home design. We all love to looky-loo at amazing style, but do you dare take a design approach in your own home or space? I know it can be a bit overwhelming and scary, but starting with something small can inspire a movement getting you to take on more. My new thing is Wallpaper it has made a huge comeback in the past  five years or so and I’m crazy for it. In the past, the problem with wallpaper was the commitment, lack of great choices(grandmas house, sorry gram!)..and what if you HATE it after it’s installed?? Not anymore, now there’s good news for the apartment dwellers, renters, or people like me who like to change things often! Wallpaper no longer has to be this huge undertaking or commitment that locks you in forever, and the options are endless…trendy, fun, and over the top crazy-cool.

Now that’s southern charm, check out the Studebaker truck I found parked so handsomely curbside along the city streets…. talk about bringing the country to the city! I so need this truck in my life!street chic country street style ella 

While strolling the city streets I came across this beautiful wall mural vibrantly done by local artist on the side of a Record shop. Now this is what City living is all about vibrant and beautiful. urban charmerThis city slicker home has the best of both worlds a cross of new construction done with old country charm, and I love the big oak tree out in the front yard the only thing missing is a swing!

Urban Decor- 70’s Inspired Mid Century Modern

modern sofaorange retro chaircool glasswaremid modern coolkharyWhen I was living in NYC back in the 90’s-2001 one of the many wonderful things I remember about New York was visiting my friends & their friends. I would love to hang out and admire the various spaces where everyone lived all over the city. Since everyone was so unique and creative it was always fascinating to see how everyone lived.  Back then my space was described best by my friends as the comfortable funky modern suburban…since I lived in Pleasantville about 35 miles or so, outside of Manhattan near White Plains.  I can honestly say that style mode has stuck with me, because in every home I have lived in since I carry that same style philosophy.  I would best describe the “Comfortable Funky modern Suburban” style as bright, fun, funky-modern/kid friendly… doing my best to keep them (kiddos) and me happy! All done with style,comfort, without perfection,…with plenty of color,crayons and stickers (breathe & embrace)!! One of the apartment styles I loved and drooled over back then and even today was the apartment owned by my friend Model/Artist  Khary Simon. His place was beautiful, hip and so cool. It reminded me of a cool mix of 60’s-70’s chic mixed with mid century modern simplicity. I was digging through my photos (I keep everything) to find some old photos of his fabulous apartment in Harlem.  I found an old picture of Khary (awww I miss you Khary) and what I remember about his wonderful space!  This is not his furniture or his actual apartment (still diggin through old photos) but I wanted to give you a visual of what I remember about his place.  Please click photos and follow-links if you are inspired to purchase or drool (lol) over any of the items shown pictured! Life is filled with wonderful memories both old and new great for sharing and reminiscing… create new memories today for the life ahead of you to come!  Live well & Stay inspired!orange speckled pitcher
