Marker Girl Monday – A Good Fit

if the shoes fits

Hip Hip Halloween

What is a good fit really? I think in life it is what makes you happy, not comparing yourself to others. In your home it is your lifestyle, how the space you are working on fits your lifestyle. Are you formal or causal. The space though may have some limitations. Instead of trying to fit something in that isn’t the right size you need to accept that it may not be right for the space. Instead embrace the room for all that it has and choose what enhances it.

In this Kitchen utilizing the whole wall for cabinets and adding seating around the island that is more suitable for the family. Creating a kitchen the family needs to function and feel comfortable is a good fit.

A color can add a personality to your room but make sure it is color that flatters your own personality. Are your dramatic, bold, refined?

Marker Girl My Office Makeover – Part 3 The Finishing Touches


My final installment of my office makeover is all about those finishing touches.

Marker Girl Home  Studio Desk

It started with the prints I found. As soon as I saw them I knew they were meant for my office. Society 6 – Polka Rain by Karen Hofstetter . I had saved Barbara Barry’s BBS Chairs fabric from Kravet. I opted to frame it. My other favorite things are accessories from Kate Spade and Jonathan Adler, my finds of funs books with inspiring titles, and a few fuchsia pink accessories.  I am obsession with notebooks they are always out and around the office.

My rug was a find at World Market  from their indoor outdoor collection this past summer. I customized the slip cover chairs from ikea with monogramming for Marker Girl.

Then in the corner I created a little seating area using a simple slipcover chair with a custom table I had made locally from Custom Creations. The appliqué pillow is from lace field designs and the floor lamp from West Elm. I embellished the lamp with ribbon giving it a marker feel.  I had the giclee painting before, it is a favorite I have had for a few years so I made sure to incorporate it in the room.
