Triangle Confetti

I thought I would sneak in one more DIY using fun triangles!! This one is super SUPER easy! Simply take your fancy triangle puncher, grab those paint chips in the colors you love and punch away! These would be great for any party or holiday! I stuck with my ombre green and black theme to keep it a bit modern!  This triangle confetti looks great on our coffee table, but you could put it anywhere throughout your home! I think I might be doing this for our next birthday party too! It’s just so fun!  St. Patrick’s Day is less than a week a way! I’ve shared some very simple and modern ways you can add a touch of green to your home this coming holiday! Be sure to check out the Geometric Vases and Triangle Garland to complete the look!  What do you think of taking this approach for holidays you aren’t too crazy about?

Home Tour: Master Bedroom

When my husband and I became instant parents to two toddlers, we had to instantly change around our living quarters, happily of course! Our old bedroom became our son’s bedroom (now shared with his baby brother, the nursery (because technically we were expecting only one baby)  became our daughters room and my husband’s music studio became our master bedroom. There was a very small storage closet, a built in desk and a few drawers which was enough to fit all my husband’s clothes and belongings in. For me that wasn’t the case! We decided to build a fun exposed closet made of pipe, as well as a shelving unit around our bed! We also found a beautiful midcentury dresser to complete the room. I think this space has evolved into such a cozy and relaxing area of the house! Every time I walk in, I just feel relaxed and calm – the white walls help the space feel bright and happy! Our DIY shelving unit is the perfect place to display all the fun pieces we’ve collected over the years. I love that this room is built primarily around DIYs, like our Industrial Curtain Rod and our Vintage Basket Light Fixture! Overall, I am so happy with how this room turned out! Hope you enjoy the tour of our master bedroom: XOXO, Lidy Feel free to leave a comment! You can also follow Hello Lidy by email, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter,... read more

Violet’s Room: Inspiration

As you all know by now, my husband and I are fostering to adopt. Still waiting patiently, but growing ever so excited as we get closer and closer! We didn’t expect to become parents of a 3, 2 and 1 year old instantly, but it has been the most amazing journey and I wouldn’t change it for the world!  Of course, it comes with challenges. Deep issues, which I am not free to speak of. But also little things, like not being as prepared as I imagined I would be, had we had time to properly prepare their little rooms! The sad reality is, a lot of foster kids come with nothing. I mean nothing. Others come with toys that they have had since birth, dirty and no longer age appropriate. And you can’t rip them of their only belongings because a lot of times, it’s not just some dirty toy or blanket. It’s the only constant in their life or memory of somebody they love dearly.  When we first brought home our two oldest, we had one room ready to go. We were prepared for a baby, so the room had a crib all set up, a change table, burp cloths, bottles, pacifiers, mobiles, baby toys and other essentials. I just didn’t think we would skip that whole infant stage and go straight into the toddler craziness! I found myself packing away all the baby stuff, using the change table to pile stuff on. Corners of the room became storage spaces, full of things I didn’t know whether to keep or give away. The room became a mess! ... read more

Basket Planter

The other day, I found some super cute baskets at Target, much like this. I grabbed a couple and brought them home to use for the kids laundry hampers. But I just loved the black and white combo so much, I didn’t just want them hiding in their rooms. I decided to repurpose my basket and use it as a cute planter!  It was such an easy transition! I didn’t even have to take my plant out of the old planter, I just sat it in the basket and it instantly got revamped! It’s a great way to change up patterns and colors in a non-fuss way!  Luckily, the basket is waterproof, so I can keep the plant in while watering it. I don’t have to worry about messes, since it’s easy to wipe down. Not to mention, the handles make it super easy to transport if I want to place the plant in another area of the home!  If I get tired of the color combo or pattern, I can always switch it back to my previous planter. Or use it as a laundry basket again! For now, I’m having some fun using it as a non-traditional planter!  What do you think? Is this just too weird? XOXO, Lidy Feel free to leave a comment!

St. Patrick’s Day Triangle Garland

The other day, I shared some super easy and modern St. Patrick’s Day Geometric Vases! Using the same supplies, you can create a fun triangle garland to help add just a little more pop of green, but still keeping that modern touch!  What you will need: Paint chips (Again, they are free!) Triangle paper puncher (you could also just use scissors) Tape Twine What to Do: 1. Punch your triangles out with your triangle paper puncher 2. Take your  triangles and tape the twine to the back! 3.Hang it up and enjoy! SOOO easy!  You can make this as long or short as you would like! I wanted mine to dress up our gallery wall of family pictures, so I only needed a few triangles. I would love to make a long one to drape across the living room wall, so I might have to pick up a few more paint chips!  I love the subtle hints of green to make it feel festive enough for St. Patrick’s Day, but not too over the top! Plus, this is something I might even consider keeping out year round, along with the vases! The color combo is that perfect pop for a neutral room.  How do you feel about adding a St. Patrick’s Day triangle garland to make things a little more festive in your house?

Dining Wall Makeover and Buffet Revamp: After

Hey friends! I’m back with the second part to yesterday’s post! First of all, let me start by saying THANK YOU to all my Instagram friends for your helpful votes and opinions. I was having a really hard time deciding what lamp to go with and I truly took in every word you had to say on the matter!  Here is the new and (hopefully) improved dining area! It feels so much more elegant and inviting, the way I imagined a proper dining room to be. I ended up going with the gold geometric lamps, for two reasons: 1. The room needed a real pop and wow factor that didn’t blend in and get lost in all the white and neutrals 2. They felt a little more “dressy” which is what I needed for the dining space. They also create a nice triangle with the chandelier, which is good on the eyes. The white lamps were beautiful and I loved the subtle design and shape, I just was afraid they would have been easy to overlook with the rest of the decor!  I framed my beautiful Buffalo print, as well as another black and white one to help bring contrast. I also added a few random decor pieces, which I’m sure will be replaced and rearranged from time to time. I’m still needing a pop of green, I just have to find the right indoor plant. Any suggestions?  I am still trying to decide if I should hang the big print or leave them leaning for a fun touch. I love how everything feels fresh and modern! It still... read more

Dining Wall Makeover and Buffet Revamp: Before

I am SO beyond excited, last Friday I had the most exciting news! Better Homes and Gardens voted Hello Lidy as one of the top ten decorating blogs for the 2014 blogger awards! You guys – that’s HUGE for us!! Thank you all for your support and love over these past few years! Without any of you, this wouldn’t be possible! I mean it! Be sure to check out the other nine amazing bloggers also awarded this year! And if you’re a new visitor here, I am SO thrilled you ventured this way! Welcome! While we are on the topic of decorating, I’ve been really wanting to give our dining room wall a simple makeover and revamp our boring buffet. Two years ago, we created a DIY Sunburst Mirror. For a while it was great for the space, but our style has changed a bit and I’m looking for something new and fresh to hang on the wall! Our buffet is very large and it stretches along the entire wall, which is also a little hard to work with. Everything looks so bare and spaced out. We are actually considering selling it and replacing it with a smaller mid century styled dining buffet. It’s going to be hard to pack and take with us when we move! It’s really quite sad, it’s such a beautiful piece. I’m thinking a fun visual piece for the wall. I am loving this print right now! Perhaps something similiar for our wall? I was hoping for it to be pretty big and also something within our budget. I have an easy solution up my... read more

Geometric Vases for St. Patrick’s Day

It’s the last day in February, if you can believe it! I always forget how short this month is. It’s gone by so fast and tomorrow we will be in March already! Since we have a holiday coming up, I decided to do a little DIY that’s a little more modern than traditional: a geometric vase for St. Patrick’s Day!  I love the holidays, because I have a good excuse to get crafty and do a little redecorating! I decided not to get too crazy and have shamrocks everywhere, but I thought I better do something green for sure!! I chose a geometric pattern with a pop of green to make it easy to accommodate any style! I picked up these fabulous gift containers at Target for cheap! I converted them into fun vases and added a little extra something!  What you will need: Vase (I used a gift container from Target) Paint chips (They are free! I picked mine up at Home Depot!) Triangle paper puncher Glue dots What to do: 1. Gather your supplies 2. Begin to punch your triangles out with your triangle paper puncher 3. Take your glue dots and stick them to the back of your triangle paper cut outs (I cut my glue dots into quarters to make them smaller) 4. Press your triangle firmly to your vase and repeat until you have a pattern you are pleased with!  It’s SO easy! The perfect pop of green for St. Patrick’s Day! The geometric design is a nice touch, keeping things modern and not too cliche! I don’t mind a good shamrock, but I like... read more

House Hunting: House Number One

I’ve talked before about how my husband and I are planning on making the move back to Canada this summer. It’s getting closer and closer, which is both exciting and scary at the same time! There is so much planning and organizing to think about, especially when relocating to another country!  One of the things I decided to do to keep my mind occupied during this crazy transition is house hunting! Right now, we are looking to buy or rent. We aren’t too picky! To me, any space has potential and so I’ve searched some homes and pulled the ones I love! If they last that is! Houses are selling fast, which just adds to the frustration. You see something you LOVE and then it’s gone the next week.  I thought I would share a new little series on my blog, so you can be a part of this transition with me! I will share before pictures of that space and how I would transform and decorate it! It’s a lot of fun for me to imagine what it could look like! I’ve also made a shopping guide for things I would love to add to our new home! Hope you enjoy! 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9  Disclaimer: I know my photoshop skills aren’t amazing, but you get the idea! What do you think of this space?
