Bedroom Makeover | Modern Walls

January 23, 2015

Sherwin-Williams Paint

Ok guys, I’m back with the color reveal! If you haven’t guessed it already (or seen a few little pictures on Instagram), we picked Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black for our walls!! Yes, it’s bold. It’s dark. It’s dramatic. But we wanted something that was a little risky and modern for our bedroom space.  read more

Master Bedroom Makeover | Picking Paint

January 21, 2015

I’ve been absent most this week, but for good reasons! We’ve been working hard on our master bedroom makeover and getting closer to the big reveal! We initially had a tough time deciding on a color. We knew that this time around we didn’t want just all white.

Muah! Vase

So, this year I’m going for a little more edgier Valentine’s Day! This way, these pieces can kind of stand the test of time in a way. Otherwise, we are busy packing up all that fun decor until next year, and that just won’t do! I’m trying to incorporate some pale/pastel pink in our living room decor upstairs and this Muah!

Weekly Snapshots

I’ve been slowly getting back to normalcy around here, but I’m finding it harder and harder to to find rhythm these days. I feel like it’s just a product of having way too much on my to-do list, so I’m never feeling like things are getting crossed off as fast as I would like. We still have to paint our master bedroom and bath, bring in our new furniture, do some wall installations in the kitchen and  paint our entry way. Never mind our basement!!! Do you feel as overwhelmed as I do sometimes? read more

Eye Love You Poster

Eye Love You Poster

I’ve been so fascinated by the “eye” trend lately, I decided I had to incorporate it into my decor somehow! I especially LOVED this poster by Fine Little Day. I definitely got my inspiration from this gorgeous print, but put my own twist on it. I think it’s great for everyday, but even for this upcoming Valentine’s Day too!  read more

After Monday’s post, I got a lot of really good feedback! I felt encouraged and refreshed, so thank you so much for sharing your hearts with me. It really does the soul some good to hear from you all. As a result, I decided this year I wanted to be more intentional with my posts. I will be cutting back on DIYs and incorporating some new columns, Weekly Snapshots being one of them. I wanted to share pictures of my everyday life throughout the week with you. They are perfectly ordinary and exactly what my life looks like when I’m not busy blogging!

1. One of the ways I talk myself into cleaning is that I get to display new decor on the shelves and change things up. Otherwise, I don’t think any housework would ever happen.  read more
