Decorating with Opposites:: Quirky Combinations of Shiny & Matte

glittered feather

New Year’s Eve (after eagerly working on my puzzle for a few hours) I texted Karrie and Reeve and Maria to see what they were wearing so I would know if I could get away with wearing my old yoga pants or if I should get fancy and put my new yoga pants on for […]

Whimsical Grandfather Clock

grandfather clock makeover

  I’ve wanted a big clock for a few years.  A couple of months ago I finally saw a simple grandfather-ish clock painted bright blue at an antique store,  I was SO excited, but it was already sold.  I snooped around and could see that it wasn’t an old clock, just a new, inexpensive clock […]

Nail Polish and Pet Peeves

nail polish

Until I met Caroline I never polished my nails.  Now I can’t stand it if they aren’t polished.  Thanks a lot Caroline.  And my friend Karrie?  Her pet peeve is unpainted toes.  Thanks a lot Karrie.  Seriously, I LOVE learning what people’s pet peeves are.  Anyhow, I’m a little partial to one color in particular.  […]

Craft Day :: Doily Bowls

how to make doily bowls

For about a year, my friend Reeve and I have talked about starting a craft day.  We finally followed through and invited a few friends over for a spur of the moment craft day.  After looking through pinterest, we settled on making doily bowls. First we went “doily hunting” as Reeve called it. We found […]

An Arranged Marriage

If you paint two pieces of furniture the same color and then put them next to each other, it’s kind of like you are joining them in holy matrimony. The yellow mirror in the office was just a temporary pop of color until I realized where I could really use a mirror. Here are the […]

Color Pop

office

I changed up my office just a little. Normally, it looks like this.  Blue and brownish.  I consider blue a neutral in this house.   I added pink in the spring. It takes almost nothing to change the look of a room.  I like to mix things up just for fun.  It started with this […]

How to Edit a Room

Yesterday I told you how I made it a point to evaluate the larger pieces in our home and how that led to a more put together look.    Once I liked the big things I could finally see what little things worked.  But in order to even SEE the big pieces in their full glory, […]

Inexpensive Wall Art

I finally came up with a solution for this wall in our bedroom. Back in February when I showed off our bedroom, I really only showed one wall.  The finished wall. What you didn’t see was this wall.  And yes, I like that huge sunburst mirror too. But two competing suns in one room make […]

Your Camera:: An Unlikely Decorating Tool

power of a photo

Last week when I did this wall, I could tell there was something off.  I liked it but it still needed tweaking in some way.  It wasn’t until I was miles away in Nashville posting the photos of the plate wall that it became glaringly obvious.  That long platter was messing me up and needed […]

Random Plate Wall

DSC_0007

Lately I’ve wanted a little change in this front tiny living room so I layered and randomized my white plates {you can see the before photo at the bottom of the post because I like to keep you on your toes}.  It’s the first room you see when you walk in the door and I […]
