Happy Friday, everyone! I’m delighted to share a favorite blog today that encompasses all things home and fashion design. Viv, from Ish & Chi, shares her crafty know-how, decorating ideas, beautiful style and fashion favorites — and it’s wonderfully enchanting to read.
I could not introduce her better than sharing the sweetest ‘about me’ collage she assembled for her site:
Her home decorating style is classy yet casual, evoking that cozy-and-comfortable feeling while introducing just the right amount of modern patterns and prints to keep her rooms fresh and chic. You’ll love her house tour entwined with each of Viv’s answers to PDB’s four interview questions.
And so let’s jump right in, because I am thrilled to take a moment to pick Viv’s brain on some of her favorite trends, how she defines her ‘design style’ and a sneak peek at her fantastic home (where she’s put all of her fabulous creativity and style to good use!) Read more »

For as long as I can remember I have always associated the month of March with shades of purple… odd, no? If you asked me to describe March I would use ‘eggplant’ and ‘plum’ in my summary. I think it was a memory association game I must have used as a child to help me remember the months of the year and days of the week (for example, in my mind Monday is red and Wednesday is yellow – and I have no idea why).
Anyhow, March is upon us and the first buds of spring are beginning to peek through all around. It’s fresh and enlivening! Just like the color purple.
And guess what? Her entire house exudes shades of lavender, aubergine and violet in the classiest and cleanest of ways.
Need a bit more inspiration in the lilac realm? Here are a few more rooms to bring out the spring in your home (the last being one of my favorites). Read more »

I can’t recall where I first discovered 6th Street Design School but I became a regular follower immediately. Kirsten is an aspiring designer in the very last semester of design school – and she shares creative and fun suggestions for reworking your space on a regular basis.
Her ideas are bright, colorful and inspiring. I’m always motivated to reupholster a bench, find a new rug or hunt down that perfect lampshade after reading Kirsten’s latest post. I can’t wait to see her in action when she graduates and I LOVE my daily dose of 6th Street inspiration.
In her own words: “This blog is a place for me to express my ever-evolving style and to share what I love about Interior Design. I want to document things I love. I call this blog 6th Street Design School because even after I graduate I always want to be a student of Design. I never want to stop learning.”
If Kirsted could be a room, this would be her:
Kirsten’s remodel of her son Jett’s room really caught my eye and I posted on it back in January.
If you love her style as much as I do, you will adore her four answers to PDB’s interview questions as well as wonderful eye-candy from her own home and her inspiration! Read more »
