TV or No TV?

This week I was faced multiple times with the age-old question of where to put the big stinkin' tv. The conversation usually goes like this..."My husband wants a 190" flat screen and to make it the focal point of the room...I don't really want a tv in the room" Ok, that is a bit of an exaggeration but whenever I work on a living room or den, the tv is always worth a discussion. I took a virtual trip over to Pinterest to get some inspiration and here are some great ideas.....


All pictures via Pinterest....loving these creative ideas! How have you handled your tv situation?

Housing Works Design on a Dime....I have to share!

Ok, I have to admit, I almost didn't want to share this....I wanted to buy everything up myself but being the unselfish blogger that I am....I have to spread the word.

I was reading my most recent edition of House Beautiful and came across an ad for the HousingWorks Design on a Dime Gala Benefit and Sale to take place in NYC from April 26th - 28th. While kicking around the idea of whether or not I'd like to attend, I found my way over to the website to see if it was worth me putting on heels for.....look 'a what I is a thrift store lovers haven!

I think I might die....this is too dangerous to be able to thrift shop from home!! Good news is that all proceeds benefit Housing Works and its housing services for low-income New Yorkers living with HIV and AIDS. Check out the site...they also have accessories, shoes, handbags and more! It is worth a visit for sure.....and for those of you outside of NY, the smaller items can be shipped! Yeah for all! Which pieces would you be bidding on? I might have to put the heels on and make my way into NYC for this one!
