C-Tables for the Family Room

Hola Amigos!

Ya gotta love a 3 day weekend, but man does time get away from you!  It’s already the end of the week and I have accomplished zippo.  Well, actually I did fix a sprinkler head… that I broke on Sunday.  Seriously, I think most of my time is spent on fixing stuff that went wrong or just maintaining the things that I like!!

As some of you know, the one room challenge is fast approaching.  I’ve all but committed myself to making over my family room space.  We are in there all the time and it really needs a bit o’ TLC.  So, with that in mind (and trying to be proactive) I’ve begun looking for two C-tables.

Do you have any in your house?  A coffee table is cool and all, but C-tables are so fantastic!  They’re exactly the right size for noshing on the sofa and enjoying a cup of tea.  Way back when, I used to have a little table for this very purpose, that my husband hated and I adored…anyway, that table was the first casualty of having children in the house.  It broke after a rough toss (as did my heart).

Sadly, that was years ago and no table has made me pull the trigger yet.  But maybe one of these will??  What do you think?  Am I missing a C-table option that you think should be on the list??  SPILL!


Siena – $199.00


Teak Side Table – 119.99 


Tray Table with Drawers – $59.99


Peekaboo Clear – $179.99


Adjustable Laptop Table – $149.99


Lumisource Zenn – $73.99

Truth be told, I do have a favorite in the bunch.  Can you guess?  I’m super digging the Crate and Barrel Siena, choice numero uno.  I think it will age well… I certainly don’t want another heartbreaking experience.  Once I commit to a C-table, it’s going to be for the long haul.

Happy Creating Peeps!!  Ciao, Jessica



Can your room be inspired by Heidi Klum?

Is it weird that I think about Heidi Klum?

I’m not much into models, actresses or reality celebrities… but oh, do I like me some Klum.  She’s just… she’s just so cool.  When I grow up, I want to be like her.  Well, I want to be like her on the outside, for sure!!

What do I gravitate towards?  I love, love, LOVE her everyday style.  I like Heidi the most when she’s out with her kids, being a normal person.  For some reason (crazy me!!) I feel like I could maybe come close to her style with some effort.

What do you think?


Ya, I could do this.  I could rock a mixture of stripes.  Or hey, I could just do this…


I’m definitely better at this, than I am at getting my hair that frizz-free!  Wow, it’s so smooth.


She’s the total cool-girl, who’s also nice.  Kinda like myself 😉


Pink and red?  That ain’t no thang for Ms. Klum.


When she mixes patterns, that’s my favorite.





Can someone please find me this scarf???? I need.


Side note – Cactus flowers are amazing, huh?  I think I need those, too.  Who’d da thunk?

Inspiration is everywhere!  A favorite outfit or style icon can give us some new ideas about how to mix fabrics and what kind of vibe we’re most comfortable in.

So, dish.  Who inspires your style?  Has it changed your interiors?

Have a great weekend!!  Happy Creating, Jessica

Nate + Joanne sitting in a tree…

I’m a fan of Nate Berkus.  I know he’s all commercial and you can find his stuff all over the place, but I can’t help it, I really love his style.

You with me?


Of course you are!  It’s no wonder he’s so wildly popular.  I actually read his book a few months ago and wow.  His story is real and inspiring – I recommend the read!  I want to go further into it, but I’ll leave that for another time.


Well, now you can get his fabric line right at Joanne’s!  And it is affordable!!  All of these are only 19.99-29.99 a yard… with your 40% coupon that is such a deal!

I think that black and white will be coming home with me soon!

I wish he had thrown in something more tribal, more Native American inspired, you know?  Those pillows and fabrics in his rooms are just killer.  I was hoping for something more like that. But hey, I DO like this little collection, so what the heck am I complaining about anyway?!

What do you think?  Any fun sources for inspiring fabrics?  I’d love, love to hear!!

Happy Creating!  And TGIF!  Jessica
