Friday Interview: High-Heeled Foot in the Door!

Have you ever found a blog that hooked you immediately? The adventures of Camila and her love for interior design did just that for me over at High-Heeled Foot in the Door.

Camila says it best in her blog introduction: “Follow me as I try to make my dreams of entering the design world a reality. Quite literally I’m trying to get my High-Heeled Foot in the door (ok so most days I’m in ballerina flats, but you get the idea). I’m starting my own Interior Decorating company and this blog allows me to let you all in on it. From helping pick out business cards to reading about me second-guessing myself and all the fun in between. Come and stay a while and read about my love for design, random ramblings, and my many steps into becoming my own boss one client and room at a time.”

This New York native shares her fun projects, inspirations and everyday ideas {like these beautiful snippets from her DIY home} while also featuring favorite bloggers in a “day in the life” fashion called In Her Shoes. One of my favorite features!

Camila is one talented & creative chica, and I’m so excited to share her answers to PDB’s four interview questions with you!

Follow the jump for an inside look at her favorite inspirations (you’ll love her office makeover that all started with a Kate Spade skirt), top three trends and simple suggestions for designing a room when starting from scratch!…

Weekend Project: DIY Wallpapered Bookshelf

I’ve been mulling over my living room bookshelves recently… and am suddenly inspired to add a modern Jonathan Adler-esq wallpaper print to cover the back of the shelves. Here is some inspiration that might inspire you to take on a weekend project as well!

Canadian House & Home stripped kitchen cabinets to reveal neatly stacked dishes and a vintage print (via Centsational Girl).

These white bookshelves with Orla Kiley wallpaper from design*sponge is one of my favorite examples a bookshelf backdrop (above).

Whole Latta Lovely and All About You features various color combinations in the same or similar floral prints for a fun variation (below).

What about fabric? There are so many options to choose from… cutting templates (out of foam core, balsa wood or mdf) to fit the back of your shelf and ‘upholstering’ the board is a great option that can be replaced as often as you’d like. For a more direct application, fold fabric edges in (for a makeshift hem) and use colorful pushpins to pin fabric to each corner. I love this Taxi Leaf Stripe in Yellow print from Timeless Treasures

For a smaller commitment (isn’t this perfect for the office or guest room?) Apartment Therapy shares a tutorial for lining a bookshelf in this black and white paisley print.

Four more ideas plus a quick How-To after the jump!

{Pretty & Petite} Cupcake Inspiration

I’ve been so inspired by mini cupcake designs lately. They’re the sweet, petite version of their popular counterpart and are perfect for birthdays, showers & weddings. When Amber Vandervliet and her mobile cupcakery (aka Enjoy Cupcakes) was featured on Style Me Pretty, I just about found a little slice of heaven.

And what gorgeous eye candy? Simple cake stands stacked with assorted yummy bites have never looked so pretty or so darn easy to replicate.

Amber runs her business out of an adorable RV and is based in Southern California. Jose Villa captured this little photoshoot and his pictures are divine!

Can’t wait to include in a baby shower some time in the near the future! More delicious designs (in more ways than one…) and one of Amber’s recipes after the jump!…
