Inspire others by living your best life

What makes you happy? Family, friends, work, home, travel and my dogs are the things that make me happy. I have committed to being grateful for something each day. I am grateful for sleep these days with a new puppy who rises well before the sun, I am thankful for my comfortable bed.

These are my goals, hopes and dreams for 2020.

1. EXPLORE MORE & LEARN SOMETHING NEW EVERY DAY!

2. EAT EVERYTHING IN MODERATION.

3. READ, WRITE, COMMUNICATE & MEDITATE MORE.

4. TRAVEL MORE…TO ROME AND BEYOND!

5. EMBRACE LOVE!

6. THE BIGGEST GOAL…LIVE TO INSPIRE!

My goals for 2020 are simple. Enjoy life more, and stress less! Live in a way that inspires people to enjoy their own lives more!

Please share your goals by commenting on this post! Thank you for stopping by. Best, Celia

Angels are Everywhere

Angels have always been important to me; they represent love, light, heaven, family, God, and peace. I was drawn to them even as a child. My mom took all five of us to church after church in Rome and Florence. I think those early memories were what make angles and churches resonate with me. Now that I am housebound, I have my pictures, and I travel in my mind back to all of these beautiful places.

Rome and Lisbon are two of my favorite cities. I love looking at these trips and looking forward to my next trip. I am hunkering down now and staying home, but as soon as I get my wings back, I will fly.

I hope you are all well, and sheltering in place with your little angels, mine are not so small but I am enjoying them. Stay safe & healthy, and remember angels are everywhere. XOXOXO

Cozy is all she asked for…

My Gen-Z client asked me to create a monochromatic cozy bedroom for her beach house. I am tired of grey, I still love it but, I was ready for a change. So the many shades of white came to mind, perfect for a beach house. We added a lot of texture into the room with cowhide, a sweater rug, hanging nightstand with a rough wood drawer, and Mohair! The chaise provides a comfortable place to catch up on emails and social media. I LOVE THIS BEDROOM!

Yippee it is Wedding Planning Season

It is the best part of the year for me! Wedding planning season, my creative juices are flowing, I wake up at 2am in a dreamy state thinking about my wonderful brides & grooms. This is one of my vision boards, I can totally visualize this couple’s big day!

It makes me so happy to be working on next season’s weddings! I hope you like the feel of these boards, I am inspired by my brides & grooms.

Thank you for stopping by.

October BAG OF THE MONTH

Reusable "Live to Inspire" shopping tote.

$15.00

I have been in the eternal city for the better part of two weeks. Rome is my favorite city! I walk everywhere, and I never leave home without comfortable shoes, my camera and a shopping tote.

Look at these goodies I found at the Campo di Fiori, glad I had my bag. Tonight we will have stuffed Zucchini blossoms with garlic-lemon beans!

I designed my shopping totes with long straps that are easy to carry all over the city!

This bag is on sale for the month of October $15 (USD +SH).



I am beginning tours to this incredible city starting the fall of 2020. If you are interested in a tote or a tour please reach out to me!

Hope you are well!

Best,

Celia

Looking at tile with fresh eyes

Look at something, someone or a situation in your life from another angle. Perspective is everything! By distancing yourself and looking at things with fresh eyes, you will see things differently. Photographers are masters of perspective.

When I am working, I am looking at design from my client’s point of view. I want to be mindful that my ideas reflect them and not me.

Today I have been looking at tiles; there are a lot of different choices, and I am drawn to many of them. If I am not careful to always keep my concept and client’s in mind, I might influence the outcome with personal preferences.

The tiles I looked at today are the new hot trend…Zellige.

This tile is not new; it was widely used before Subway tile!

This is what I learned authentic Zellige is Moroccan; no two tiles are the same, imperfection is expected, and the finish and color vary a lot.

I think it is beautiful, and one of my clients is interested in using it. I just wanted to get educated, so I took the day to study it.

If you are interested in learning more about Zellige, this article is excellent!!
