Time To Rethink Your Closet System?

What Works Best For Your Wardrobe

littleblackdomicile motivational monday

While this quote is true for many aspects of design, we believe it goes double when it comes to our closets.  Or as our friends across the pond call them, our wardrobes.  As long as we all wear clothes, we are going to have to keep coming up with closet systems that work for each of us everyday.

The One Element Every Kitchen Needs Can Be Easy To Upgrade

Are You A Faucet Snob?

More people dream about a kitchen redo than any other type of project in our homes.  We scroll online resources, look at endless home decor magazines and have date nights at the big box stores like Lowe’s and Home Depot drooling over the possibilities.  Sound familiar?  Choices for cabinets, counters and appliances are endless and can be overwhelming.  How about we start with the one element every kitchen needs and perhaps even start our upgrade with the sink faucet.

If It’s Not Broke…Just Improve It

A Vintage Kitchen Storage System That Still Works


A place for everything and everything in its place. Benjamin Franklin

We depend on our kitchens to do so many things.  In addition to feeding our families and being the central hub of our home, kitchens have to house all our stuff.  And boy do we have stuff!  New ideas and storage systems come along often and are touted to change our lives.  However, freshening a tried and true idea is really what can work best.  If an idea is not broke, perhaps we can simply improve it.

Building A Better Bookcase


“A set of shelves for books set in a surrounding frame or cabinet.”

This dictionary definition of a bookcase quickly shows us how we are evolving as a society.  For those who do still relish the feel and smell of some pulp fiction, do you have bookcases dedicated entirely to the storage of these treasures?  If not, what are you doing with the empty bookshelves?

There is nothing new about fire.  Civilization has used fire for cooking and warmth for eons.  Yet, today more often than not, when we think fire we think about cozy settings.  We think about fireplaces!

For The Holiday’s There’s No Place Like Home…Except

A Full Service Hotel

Le Germain Hotel Quebec City

Nine years ago, as Mr. LBD was contemplating retirement, we purchased yet another property in Florida.  The idea, or as I call it “big sell” on his part was to promise me that we’d travel someplace for the fall and winter seasons I simply adore.  My part of the deal is to find our temporary accommodations that at the very least are equal to the comforts of our home.  After years of creating the perfect LBD’s for ourselves at home, this is getting harder to do…especially in a hotel situation.  So when an establishment offers so many things that make everyone happy, I want to share!

Are We Ready To Be A Minimalist?


We’ve all had several years of being heavily introduced to the concept of Minimalism.  It’s hard to surf the internet, read a magazine, or even watch some of the HGTV shows without hearing the word tossed around.  As always when an idea is promoted, there are people who write “how to” books on the subject.  Nearly everyone thinks they “need this” in their lives now.  What exactly does it mean to have a minimalistic decor?  “Are we ready to embrace it?”
