Painted Trim.

What are your thoughts on painted trim?
Do you like to keep it classic white or do you venture into the wonderful world of color?

I think there's a time and place for each, but I'm loving all these painted beauties above.
Isn't there something so yummy about the last image with its emerald green nook?
The perfect place to cozy up and read a good book on this rainy, cold fall day.

Happy weekend!

Outfit to Room: Tribal Chic Meets Eclectic Feminine Lounge.

This post is perfect for the girl
who likes a little bit of everything...
A relaxing weekend in the English countryside is as enticing
as backstage passes to see her favorite indie band in the city.

She feels just as comfortable sipping a latte in Europe
as she does snapping candids on the African planes.

She ties her tresses up in a high bun some days
and knows how to let her hair down others.

An eclectic room for the girl who loves the prim and proper,
the exotic and unique,
and everything in between.


Comfortable yet chic. Tailored yet bright.

I am crazy about this inspiration board! What about you?
I'm so inspired by all the colors at work. What's your favorite element of this space?

Listen Up!

Get your listening ears ready because...

Today I'll be on the radio!

If you are in Cleveland, tune in to 1330 AM WELW between 4 and 5 in the afternoon and listen as I discuss topics such as decorating on a shoestring budget (sounds familiar...again...and again) and decorating for the holidays.

Wish me luck!

A Sneak Peak.

Here are a few iphone photos I couldn't wait to share!

I'm busy wrapping up an exciting project and absolutely love the way things are coming together. Lots of bright white to keep it crisp and clean, but enough color to add some excitement and warmth. I pushed my client to step out of her comfort zone and she's really loving the results!

Just today she told me her only regret is painting the bedroom beige....
Told ya so!!!! :)

But honestly, it's beautiful and just the peaceful retreat you want at night after a long day.

Portfolio pictures coming soon so you can see all the great details (trust me, there are tons!!) and the space in full. Just a teaser until then.

Cozy, yet peaceful. I could move right in. What about you?

Wouldn't You Just Love To...

plop onto that sofa and all its velvetty goodness and flip through a new magazine?
Piping hot peppermint tea in hand, of course.

I'd love to hear, what's your favorite way to spend a rainy day?
It looks like we're about to be getting our fair share of those here in Cleveland. And I need all the ideas I can get!

Happy weekend!

Girlie Glam Bedroom.

Well it worked.


Amanda's room is now a girlie haven, full of glamorous details and a healthy dose of pink.

Lamps which used to be in my old dining room (and copper..remember? Notice the black dresser, too!).
Fresh flowers cure a world of issues. Period.

Symmetry adds to the glamour chic look, but not too over-the-top to keep it fresh.

Old favorites. It was time to pass on these gems.

Love me some glam gold.

Happy "client" !!
Love how her shirt coincidentally matches the room perfectly.
Must've done gooooood :)

I love how Amanda's room turned out. It's feminine without the fuss (thanks black, gray, and white)
and perfect for this young lady lover.

What are your thoughts on the girlie glam look?
Too much pink for you or just right?

Inaugural Outfit To Room Post.

I'm not sure how my favorite fashion bloggers do it (Emily, Mara, Sydney, and Blaire- I'm talking to you). Posing for outfit pics is just plain AWK. WARD. So I'll ease into these fashion posts with a workout look. No where to go but up from here, right? Real outfits are coming soon. Promise.

Yesterday I tied up the 'ol running shoes and had such an unbelievable run, I had to blog about it! And seriously, I get my best design ideas when I'm out jogging away. Anyone agree?

Neon watermelon really gets me going on mornings when I'd rather stay in bed. And peachy walls for that priceless glow that sticks around all day after a couple miles spent pounding the pavement.

Go get your run on ladies!!

Woah!! Where Did The Last Few Months Go?

Hello, Hello! Do you lovelies remember me?!

Long time, no talk. I know. Posting here on ATLS has been sparse at best lately, but...

I'm back, BIGGER & BETTER than ever!

I have fun new segments planned (outfit to room!! yay!!!!),

finally snagged a spot in the uber talented Bri Emery's Blogshop (December- hurry!!),

and will get back to sharing more of the design work that's been keeping me away from this sweet little blog.

Here's some orange to get your blood pumping on this gray fall Monday.

You can thank me later!!

XOXO Heidi

P.S. All images via Pinterest. Pinned the day away yesterday! Oogle over the pretty here.

Happy Fall.

You know what this means.

Pumpkin spice lattes,
the prettiest leaves you ever did see,
and tights.
Glorious, cozy, every-color-under-the-rainbow tights.

Fall is inching it's sweet way in and this lady couldn't be happier!

What's your favorite part of the season?
