Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay. It's difficult to watch the news or scroll through Twitter when just the words "rape" and "molest" …

Decor Inspo: Rustic + Industrial

Rustic industrial decor incorporates some vintage and traditional elements. Much like the new modern, it includes warmer and cozier design rather than the minimal industrial decor of the past. What makes it modern is ironically the rustic and vintage-inspired pieces that have become so trendy the last few years. Pictured: Riverside Furniture Camden Town Writing Desk in Hampton Road Ash

When it comes to modern industrial furniture, it's all about the cold steel or iron paired with rustic distressed wood finishes.

Tips for Creating Rustic Industrial Design:
  • Cozy up the look with soft fabrics and warm colors. 
  • Keep it modern with clean lines and touches of grey, silver, or black. 
  • To add some elegance, include feminine touches like fresh flowers and candles. 
  • Use interesting details like castor wheels or accessories made from gears.


Think old world meets masculine when it comes to the decor accessories, like the battery wall clock pictured above. A reddish-orange or coral is the perfect punch of color to mix in with the blacks and browns. Add in femininity and a vintage feel while in keeping with the cozy masculine vibe with a burlap or linen French script accessory, like the throw pillow pictured above. For storage, keep the look industrial with wire baskets.
