Small Spaces - Great Design Ideas

Little Lofty

The problem: how does one transform a small, 800 square foot apartment into an warm and open lofty space? The solution: exposed wood beams, poured concrete floors, vintage Eames chairs, a floating antique Chinese console, hand stitched pillows, a Beni Ourain rug, and interior designer Jessica Helgerson‘s impeccable taste.

It's Cheaper to Keep Her

Kobe Bryant’s Divorce Would Have Cost Him $1.36 Mil A Month

Kobe Bryant has been keeping a smile on his wife Vanessa’s face ever since she decided to shake him up a bit and file for divorce last year.   The couple were spotted looking super rich and very happy as they made their exit from the Warner Brothers and InStyle magazine Golden Globes after party this past Sunday in LA.
It seems as though Kobe found out real fast that it is definitely cheaper to keep her.  According to California attorney Andrew L. Botros, if the couple had went forward with their divorce, per California law, Kobe would have had to cough up child support for his two daughters as well as spousal support INDEFINITELY as well as a split of all of his properties.
A 10-year marriage is considered a long-term marriage and a California judge can award spousal support indefinitely. Vanessa and Kobe crossed that 10-year threshold a few months before Vanessa initiated divorce proceedings, meaning Kobe might have had to pay spousal support for the rest of Vanessa’s life (ouch). 
So what are we looking at in terms of child and spousal support? 
According to Forbes, Kobe’s annual income is somewhere in the neighborhood of $53.2 million dollars. Assuming that he has 50/50 custody of his two daughters, Kobe would have to pay somewhere near $365,000 in child support under the California Guideline. He also would probably have to pay somewhere around $1,000,000 in spousal support.
These are not annual figures. These are monthly estimates. 
I didn’t mention property division. Kobe and Vanessa were married on April 18, 2001. Under California law, every penny Kobe earned from basketball or endorsements from the date of marriage to the date of separation is considered community property. It’s half Kobe’s and half Vanessa’s. That also applies to every mansion, car, yacht, or private jet that the either party purchased with community money.
Well dayum! That is enough motivation for any man to be on his best behavior and fight to keep his marriage together. That’s some serious business right there.

Kim Kardashian Looks Comfortable Pregnant

A baby bump isn’t going to stop the Kim K show.

Now that the pregnancy has been announced and the weather’s getting colder, she’s been serving up some fashionable ensembles that remind us of her style before Kanye touched her closet. Yesterday, she was spotted in Miami wearing a stylish blazer and trouser combination complete with Givenchy heels as she caught dinner with her publicist Jonathan Cheban. And of course she was looking fierce in that high bun.
Although she is elated and looking forward to the birth of her baby,  she recently revealed to E! Online that being pregnant hasn’t been as easy or as fun as some people make it look:
When people say that pregnancy is fun and they love it I would have to disagree. Even my sister [Kourtney Kardashian] has made it look easy, but it’s not as easy as people think.
It’s a little painful, there’s a lot of growing pains. I heard it’s all worth it so I’m looking forward to that.
Meanwhile, her boo Kanye is making sure she’s as comfortable as possible after the couple just purchased a 10,000 square foot, 11 million dollar home together. According to reports, they plan to remodel the home so that it includes a gym, movie theater, full hair and makeup salon, bowling alley, basketball court, and indoor and outdoor pool.  You can just imagine what baby Kimye’s nursery is gonna look like.  Sheesh!

Here's a look at the home from an ariel view!
