Style Me Pretty

Styling and accessorizes in a home can make a huge different. It can really help show some of your personal style and personality. It don´t have to be something advanced, just a chair with some coffee table books and some fresh flower like the one on the picture will do! 
How do you style your home?

For A Good Cause...

Interior designer and TV personality, Sarah Richardson, known from TV shows such as room service, design inc. and Sarah`s house, has designed this girly hotel suite. It was done to raise awareness of breast cancer and to benefit the fight for a cure. And of course it´s all pink! A portion of the room rate goes to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. I think this is such a good thing to do! And the room is so, so pretty!
