I love… lamp. I love lamp.

Yes, I said I wasn’t looking to create a bedroom which looked like an antique store or museum, but I fell in love with this lamp, and best of all…it was only $40 at a local antique store. This is the lamp shade that came with it, but I don’t particularly care for it. What do you think? Do you have any ideas for a better lamp shade or where I can find one? Now that I have chosen this lamp, what color do you think I should go with my walls, bedspread, etc? I also don’t want to be stuck with a bedroom that is entirely PINK! I want 40’s glam…right, Callie! 🙂

Paris Flea Market

This past weekend one of my dear friends, my mom and I went to the Paris Flea Market which was held directly outside Fleuri’s boutique in Sacramento. It was a great time and we managed to get some great buys. My mom sells her bouquets in the shop. Lucky her….she made money just being there!

It's never too early to shop!

Alba’s Green Home

In Style is featuring Jessica Alba’s exquisite home for their Stars Go Green segment.

Interior designer Kara Whittman was in charge of finding old pieces for the Alba/Warren home. Very rarely was anything new used to decorate the home.

Alba and Warren opted to be environmentally friendly in their bedroom as well, going with hardwood and rugs rather than carpet.

Going with the eco theme, Alba chose a salt water pool which has fewer toxins
