"Not All Those Who Drift.....

.....are lost"... what that little mirror says! I agree. 

I LOVE the "cruise ship style" home of my good friend, and design soul sister, Tori!!
I am helping her with some finishing touches in her home and I really wish I could just move in!

Her and I have pretty much the same style and humor that we love to express in our homes.

I mean, I don't know anyone else who would freak over this t.v. tray the same way that I would!

Can you even imagine Silver Springs at this time? With the cute, not so slutty bikinis, and high heels?? 

And the person who made this.....

.....had to have had some patience!

NOTICE the blue ceilings???
Your ceilings are walls too! They deserve the proper attention and a light shade of blue can make normal ceiling heights seam much higher.

LOOK at the drapes....would you EVER guess those are canvas painter's cloths?!?! I would never have guessed! They look like linen! 
I suggested added a trim of white grosgrain ribbon to dress them up just a bit. 

The view from the kitchen.....

....that are almost swinging along with the waves.

And my FAVORITE room...

The dining room...

It's just so bright and sparkly and filled with soul!! 

ALL of these pieces and every little accessory you see, are reinvented finds, heirlooms, or just cool things that she has thrifted along the way. If her home isn't proof that you can decorate and fill your home with beautiful, meaningful things, on a realistic budget, then I don't know what is!

The connected family room with a gorgeous Chesterfield leather sofa!

I have so much more to share from Tori's home and shop Embellished Heart. We will keep you posted on our progress and meanwhile, if you happen to be a local to the Kenosha area, you can find more cool stuff at Embellished Heart. Her store is just brimming....go see for yourself!

Have a fabulous week friends!
