Good morning everyone!  SO happy it’s Friday…these 6 am school mornings are rough. I’m glad I wrote controversial in the cowhide title… I love a good debate on the blog, I love to hear people’s diverse opinions, but I do ask that people stay polite, if not the comment will not be approved.

Well, I’m off to Luke’s assembly early this morning and then taking the train to NYC to do a design consultation and dinner.  Before I leave I thought I would post the least controversial thing on the blog…just sharing some interiors I think are cool and that appears to have one practical thing in common…

The first three images interior design by Vanessa Vargas.

Great idea to wall paper a back of a book case.

Image source unknown.

Love a space that multi tasks! And love that dresser.

Is this a West Elm desk?

I think the rooms have great style and  yet they also feel fairly affordable.  Fairly…I said because I don’t know the exact sources.  As I’m planning the next look on LiveLikeYou, I’m thinking of ways you can live and design like a Recessionista!

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

    Love the mirrored desk – simple and glamorous. West Elm does have a desk that looks exactly like the one in the photo.

    Love me some chevron, mirrored furniture and bright colors. Just delete that negativity and move on. I love it here. Diversity in life and in decor is the spice that give this world the spice and spark we need.

    Bright colour soothes and calms. White bedroom looks fresh and makes a greater impression. The prides of bedrooms are colourful lanterns. It looks modestly, but the bedroom is cosy.
