While I’m here today, I wanted to share some of my "Tablescaping Essentials" with you. I have a whole page on the Amazon website with my favorite picks for setting a beautiful table.

Quite often time is of the essence, and I have last minute projects or events to work on, so I turn to Amazon for one or two day delivery. You’d be surprised at how many amazing items they have to offer! And I'm constantly updating this page with my new favorites. 

You can check it out here, at Tablescaping Essentials.

Sharing this beautiful house today
that’s around the corner from me.

It’s done in a wonderfully chic,
modern and fun style!

animal print coats

Some say a little leopard print is good for the soul!

What do you think?
Too wild?

Would you wear one?

Thanksgiving in the neighborhood

Driving home today,
I spotted a few beautiful front porches
that are so festive for this time of year.

Simple and elegant details
always look great!

Don’t you just love Fall?

Happy Thanksgiving !

Mary McDonald's home at Christmas

Here's a peek at Mary McDonald's 
Beverly Hills home all decked out for the holidays.  
She's definitely my favorite 

I love the organic elements she chose 
for her home at Christmas
It's all very natural, 
but still decadently over-the-top!  

with the citrus topiaries and indoor fruit trees. 
The peacocks really add a festive air.

More orange with that 

The holiday decor is still understated, 
but the whole room looks festive. 

What a tree topper!


More peacock and citrus elements 
frame this gorgeous doorway.


I love the subdued color palette 
in the dining room, 
don't you?

ciao! fabiana
