Inspiration: High Fashion Home

A little Tuesday inspiration for ya…

I’m big on bold bright color, but there’s something about this color palette that I love! If this were my place, I’d switch out the artwork for custom Raynee + color with similar colors and a muted lip (nothing overly girly) and top it off with lillies on the coffee table.

But that’s just me! What would you change if anything?

“The Swap” a Dinner Party

Doesn’t this sound like fun?!…

A dinner party for 6-8 women (think fun girly night in) centering around a recipe swap!

The host makes her signature dish and writes out the recipe in adorable notebooks for each of her guests.  All of the guests would bring a recipe to share that they would add to the notebooks as well.  Upon leaving for the night, each guest takes their party favor notebook home as a little memento that doubles as a recipe book.  The group can set up dates to rotate homes and continue the concept until their books are full!

This is on my “to do” list for the Fall!

Dinner Party- The Swap

Fun right?

Would you and your girls be into this?

Meet your Newest Beach Accessory!

Hey, Friends!

Ok, raise your hand if you still plan on hitting the beach at least one more time before the end of Summer!  I’m sure there’s a ton of you lucky readers heading out to catch some waves, sand and fun with your friends and family. May I recommend you take a look at this.  How cool is this?  I wish I had one on my vacation!  I think everyone should have a beach tent.

Colorful Vacations: Martha’s Vineyard

Hello, Friends! 

I hope everyone is getting out and enjoying their Summer! I’ve been painting a lot in preperation for a Fall Trunk show ( stay tuned for new Raynee + color items!) and was fortunate enough to steal away with some girlfriends to Martha’s Vineyard! We had a blast as you might imagine; sun, beach, sail boats, seafood, shopping…what’s not to like, right? And I absolutely LOVE the whole ‘ its 80 degrees during the day and 65 at night’.  That’s so perfect to me! 

Ok, enough of me rambling on…on to the pics! 





Such a great weekend with 2 girlies I love to pieces! Already looking forward to our next trip! 

Hope you’re making the best out of your Summer whether you can get away or you make it a ‘staycation’.  Enjoy!

Here’s how they turned out…likey?






These girlies should have arrived today!  Hope the girls love their gifts!

Memorial Day Weekend

First of all, Thank you to all that have served and are currently serving in the armed forces! We appreciate you!

My girl Starla and her son Miles came for a visit! We celebrated Starla’s birthday and had a blast exploring downtown Cincy. Here are the pics to prove it. photo  photo-5   photo-3  photo-4  photo-1  photo-6 How cute is this candle Starla gave me as a hostess gift! Totally unnecessary since it was her bday weekend and I was supposed to be spoiling her, but much appreciated none the less 🙂 photo 2 photo 1  

Hope you enjoyed your weekend as well!

Magazine Love

I love when I get new magazines in the mail!  Don’t you? Especially when they’re full of pics that are “ooh” and “aww” worthy. These are from Anthropologie and CB2 for May.

I love these 2 in particular.  What if you really could move your bed to your backyard overlooking the water and dream under the stars?  And how chill is that living room? Love the records in the book shelf, natural light and overall awesomeness.  I also appeciate how simple yet stylish it feels.



And speaking of magazines…check out what my girl Adrienne just sent me…like literally as I was typing this!  Hot off the press, people.  This looks fab!  She did a great job.  I told her it looked straight out of a magazine and what a kawinky-dink…I just so happened to be writing a post about magazine dopeness.

Raw Artist Showcase…the pics!

The event went well!

I’m very glad I participated in the showcase.  I met lots of people and it’s always good to get your work out there.  While I didn’t sell anything at the event I did get a ton of great feedback which still lets me know that there’s a market for my brand!

Before we get into the pics I have to say thanks again to all my friends that came out and supported me!!  Special-special shout out to my girl Starla and her husband Matt for driving 2 hours just to show some love…on a work night!  That’s love!  You guys rock!  And of course my amazing parents who helped load, set up, unload and calm me down (I had a couple spazz moments…thanks for holding me down, mom!)

So, what’s next for this Raw Artist you ask…I’m thinkin’ The Chi.  What do you think?

Now Searching: Floor Lamps

I’m in the market for new lamps! 

Now that I’ve moved, I’m kindof looking at everything with fresh eyes in my new place.   I’ve had the same lamps for quite some time now and they’re just kindof blah.  I have 3 or 4 that I’m looking to replace and they all pretty much look like this. 


I think I’m diggin’ these…lampsplus
