The genius behind it:

Hi! I’m Nicole. A self diagnosed design junkie, obnoxious color enthusiast, French novice, dog cuddler and wanna-be florist. Here you’ll find design inspirations, tips and tricks, how to’s and well, whatever else I want. I want to share my view on this tiny digital platform called the internet.

It all started when I was a cute, rosy cheeked, strawberry blonde haired girl who loved wearing “spin around dresses.” I was crazy obsessed with coloring. Crayons, colored pencils, markers, watercolors; you name it, I LOVED IT!! My parents like to remind me of that one time in pre-school where I yelled at a boy for trying to use my blue crayon. NOT TODAY BUDDY!

Now, a number of years later, I’ve calmed down some and channeled that bossy attitude into a budding career in interior design and visual merchandising. I get to play in a 42,000 sq ft showroom creating lifestyle settings with furniture and accessories. Jealous, much? Yeah, I thought so.

When I’m not at work, I’ll unwind with walks around my aborable Portland neighborhood, hikes through the woods and under waterfalls. I DON’T OWN AN iPHONE. Because if I did, it would be destroyed 2.7 seconds later. No joke. I love watching the weather and drinking my coffee in the afternoons. My guilty pleasures range from The Bachelor to Cheetos.

So there you have it! Happy Clicking. YAY

A color almost as obnoxious as 2016

We’re starting the new year with bold, bright, and beautiful color! The Pantone 2017 Color of the Year is here!

Greenery! Inspired by nature. Inspired by the environment. Inspired by the green and sustainable movement. It calls to mind all the ‘re’ words: revive, refresh, renew, and rejuvenate. Signifying new beginnings and new years resolutions.

You can see it in architecture, interior design, fashion, food and even travel.
