    What do you think of this cute little office???? I absolutely LOVE the fact that it serves as a guest bedroom as well - very versatile space! I wanted this room to still reflect the same colour scheme I used throughout the house, with light furniture and masculine accessories. This home could be yours! Don't forget to stop by the PNE this summer to see it!!!!

    Here are the lovely details of the space: light fixture is from Pine Lighting, furniture is from Lane Home Furnishings, faux flowers from Trims, and a few finishing touches from HomeSense! Let me know what you think of it, I hope you enjoyed the tour!

    Big thanks to Janis Nicolay for the photos, and Dana Valeria for helping make this happen!

    Bachelor in Paradise: Episode 2

    August 12, 2014 • 10:00 am

    WOW...was that a lot of back and forth last night or WHAT?! I honestly had no idea who would pick who by the end of this episode!!! Michelle K??? How could you possibly make someone want to jump off a balcony and injure himself? I feel like that could have been SO much worse…thank God he’s ok!!!!!

    I really didn’t think that Lacy was into Marcus based on last week….she made it seem like she was CRAZY about Robert last episode! Because of that…I was pretty certain that Robert would be going home….but HE STAYED!

    Which brings me to Dylan! I kind of understand where he was coming from…he arrived and was immediately latched onto Elise because she was obsessed with him, and he never had a chance to get to know anyone else or explore other connections. When he finally voiced his opinion, Elise took it WAAAY to far with a steamy ocean make out with Chris. To be honest, I think Dylan was probably relieved that she did that because it gave him the FREE pass and allowed him to see what else was out there!! Elise's speech was just too much! The reactions of everyone were HILARIOUS to watch! Do you think Sara wanted to stay true to Elise, and that’s why she didn’t give Dylan the rose??? I totally thought she would give it to him!

    Marquel telling Michelle that he would change things about her…like her love of drinking, was a COMPLETE turn off. You should never say that there are things you would change or prefer to be different about anyone! It’s just rude! However, he is sweet and darling, so hopefully it will all work out!

    I’m so excited to see who else arrives! Sayonara Ben and Dylan!!!!!!

    Until next week…
