Wall Decor Signs from my favorite show Fixer Upper

I am a frustrated interior designer. I wish I had taken this course when I was in college. So these days I try to do some Interior Styling and Party Styling to let out my creative side. One of my favorite design shows on HGTV that I discovered three years ago is Fixer Upper. The designer of the show, Joanna Gaines has become one of my favorite designers and I’m so sad that their show will be ending for good really soon.

I’ve never been a big fan of wall décor with a word, phrase or a sentence on it.  But I’ve learned to appreciate it through Joanne Gaines’ designs and it was actually one sign that really changed my view on words as wall décor.

My favorite sign that started it all.

5 Home Decor Stores: Negros Trade Fair 2017

I can still remember going to the Negros Trade Fair as a kid with my mom. My mom would buy me those smocked dresses but I was actually looking forward to the Bacolod delicacies. My dad by the way grew up in Bacolod.
Now, aside from the Bacolod delicacies I also look forward to check out the home decor stores as I am into interior styling.  I saw a few home decor stores that caught my attention at this year’s Negros Trade Fair held at the Glorietta Activity Center last September 27- October 1. I have to confess though that my first two stops were Felicia’s ensaymadas and Virgie’s napoleones!

My Favorite Gilmore Girls Spots

When I heard about the Gilmore Girls Revival, I immediately did a marathon of Gilmore Girls’ seven season on Netflix.  I fell in love again with Logan’s college apartment and his New York place, Rory’s pool house and of course the Dragonfly Inn.

Logan Huntzberger’s Apartments: Even if these are Bachelor pads (and I’m on Team Jess), I still love the style! Plus, I’m such a big fan of brick walls.

MaArte Bazaar Fave Finds

Last Friday I visited the MaArte Bazaar (for the first time!) at 8 Rockwell.  There were three home furniture and decor companies that I really loved.  I want their pieces to be part of my home!

I’m such a big fan of bar carts and daybeds!  So when I saw their bar carts, I couldn’t get over them!  I first saw their booth at ArtifactPH in Alabang Town Center last July and I loved their daybed!
