When A Friend Decorates

This week's When A Friend Decorates features party planner extraordinaire Kate from Party Resources. Whether Kate is planning a party, pulling together an ensemble or decorating her bedroom, she has a sophisticated sense of classic style with a hint of modern day lady.   

I was immediately drawn to the symmetry and lack of clutter in Kate's bedroom. The mongrams, the foo dogs lamps, the pop of color on the bed and the black and white image makes for a wonderful place to unwind before calling it a day.
The lamps are fabulous and add visual interest to the space. Love how she adds beauty to her bedside tables in the form of flowers.   
I'm a huge fan of mixing a little animal print into every space. Phyton plus tray equals perfection. Don't you think orchids add sophistication to a room?    
Thank you to Kate of Party Resources for sharing her lovely space. 

If you have a space that would be great for a When A Friend Decorates post, e-mail your images to me at

So beautiful Kate! Love the monograms, yes to orchids and a touch of animal print, beautiful colors and your room is as inviting as it is pleasing to the eye.
Thank you both.

What a lovely bed, I want to lay in it and mess it up. Does that make me bad?

Good morning, my friend!

Her place is beautiful and it feels so sunny w/ that paint on the walls. Very inspiring.

By the way, thank you for your comment on my post the other day. I'm glad you liked it.

Have a blessed weekend.

Hello Barbara!

How are you doing this morning?

I just want to wish you a great day!

Oh, you asked me if I know what's I'm expecting. Yes, I do. It's a boy, my little Matthew. I'm not sure if you know, but he will be my 3rd child. I also have a son (6y/o) and a daughter (5 y/o). Matthew is a gift for us and he's arriving in less than 3 weeks. I'm anxious, excited and a bit scared! LOL :-)

I can imagine you driving your mom crazy. I could never be able to not know what I'm expecting. I really admire who can wait to find out. It's probably great!

xo to you.
