living it up.


Ever dreamed of Living it Up. I do all the time... every since I moved back from NYC in 2004, I still dream of living high in the sky in the middle of THE City.

Would you live here?

After a busy day in the city, relax in the gray neutral living room.

Sit in your bedroom sitting area while enjoying the view. Love the chandelier.

Is that terrace off the bathroom. Ok I'm sold.

Farmhouse table and sink. Check. Carrera marble. Check. Open kitchen. Check.

I can't wait to host a dinner party in this rooftop terrace!!!!

Ok the view has me SOLD! Too late... This is rumored to be the new Manhattan pad of Jennifer Aniston.

I guess I'll just visit.

See you soon, Allison.

bird silhouette baby shower.


One of my best friends is expecting (yeah!!!!) and I will be throwing her a baby shower in late March. We are going with outdoor garden-French-bird silhouette decor. I am so excited to share with you some of the color boards.

I can get stuck on fabric websites for I am giddy over all these patterns from Hawthorne Threads that I put together. Can't wait to find out if it is a boy or girl.


See you soon, Allison.

What do you think...


I just don't know if I'm feeling it.... Comment below... I want to know your opinion.

Cheetah Cheetah Cheetah.... Is it back? A fabulous store, Dovecote, in Westport Connecticut is using it in almost every room.

Love that chair with the metal base.

Dovecote sure does know how to decorate. Love all the lamps.

A cheetah rug with pops of orange???

More!!!! Do you like?

Ballard Designs has this runner.

And finally my favorite designer Hillary Thomas put cheetah carpet in Lucky Magazine Editor, Marlien Rentmeester, guest bedroom. Does this mean a trend is coming?

You might wear it, but will you decorate with it?
