You know you nailed it when a decor change moves ya to tears.   I’d been missing my aqua couch in my great room after purchasing the new Farlov sofa and loveseat with white slipcovers.     As much as I love white couches in others homes, I really loved the statement my aqua sofa made in this space.   … Read more »

This here post is Part 1 of our newest den do-over.     With extremely cute grandlittles.     The front room just off the entry has been everything from a bland white-walled cra{p}ft room, to a pale pink-walled Mary Kay party room, to a poop brown-walled room where all miscellaneous… Read more »

Room makeovers at our house are often a long winding road with lots of pit stops.  And my brain’s GPS sometimes doesn’t really know the ending destination.       I’m ok with that.  I like my rooms to evolve.  And I don’t know how to do photoshop, so putting a mood board together beforehand isn’t an option.     When I received this glorious floral wallpaper from Milton and King Wallpapers, I was excited to create a fresh English… Read more »

Do you ever find that you’ve been doing something decorwise so long that you don’t really know you’ve been doing it? And it’s actually a smart kinda something?     In froufing my home, as I approach yet *another* room up-do, I find I MUST have warm wood pieces.  They ground my cottage aethestic so my rooms don’t float away, and end up looking like a sorbet of pastels. No one really wants to live in an ice cream parlour,… Read more »

If not, it’s the perfect opportunity for hubs to build me a sliding barn door, amiright?     I started with the beautiful rug from the folks at Well Woven. I wrote about it in my last post, but will… Read more »

We’ve since bought 2 more!     Well, we discovered the good folks at Zinus also make incredible memory foam mattresses too…our son’s bed was in sad shape, and we were expecting company who’d be sleeping in his room. Yikes!     We decided on the Zinus 12 inch Green Tea Memory Foam mattress (twin)…. Read more »

I’m trying to learn how to style and tablesettings. Because evidently home decor bloggers need to know how to do this. I mean, don’t get me wrong. I love food. And I certainly love to eat food. The problem is, I don’t really like to cook. Enter Freshly.  *angels singing* Perfect opportunity to practice my styling skills AND eat a healthy meal with the convenience of a quick zap in the microwave! Freshly one-serving, pre-packaged meals are basically the perfect… Read more »

Want to easily get the Cottage look in your bedroom?     My take on Cottage Style is a cozy, collected dwelling full of quirky pieces, a signature color pop, and rustic touches softened by some well-placed florals and ruffles….a kinda Rachel Ashwell meets Jojo Gaines vibe.     I love a mix of all things cottage and farmhouse….so when I stumbled upon the stonewashed linen bedding from Oscar and French I knew what direction I wanted to take the… Read more »
