3D Object Capture | Dala Horse Prints

Well, friends. Welcome to the future, because this crazy technology is straight out of the movie Mission Impossible. As a maker and DIYer, this is a truly revolutionary way to create.  With the new all-in-one Sprout 3D scanning and object capture, I can take any object, manipulate it digitally and then bring it into the physical world in a refreshing way!  It’s a rare and extraordinary way of working with materials in your very own home.  I decided to work with a Scandinavian Dala horse. My husband is proud of his Swedish backgroud, but coming across a Dala Horse is both rare and pricy. We’ve collected a few from flea markets, but those opportunities are far and few between. I decided to create a collection of Dala Horse prints. Here is how we were able to create these lovely 3D designs for our home:  1. Simply place you object on the touch mat and tap the scan button. The Illuminator will capture a 3D color image of your object. 2. Follow the simple guided instructions to rotate and capture your object from multiple angles. This is where you can watch as Sprout magically combines the images to build a beautiful, fully editable 3D model before your eyes.  3. Once you bring your object into the digital world, you can manipulate it however you want: rotate, shrink, stretch, or combine with other 3D objects to give your creation a whole new look. We played around with some of the awesome filters and decided to give it some texture using the wood and marble option.  4. You can share full 3D images of your creations online or connect to a 3D printer to create a physical... read more

Five Plants I’m Loving For The Home

If you haven’t noticed, I’m kind of a crazy plant lady. I wasn’t always like this – believe me! There was a time that I killed even bamboo, but thank goodness, those days are over. If you were to ask me what my favorite plant is, I wouldn’t be able to tell you.  There are just too many amazing ones and I keep discovering even more that I love! But, what I can tell you are five plants I’m currently loving for the home as of late!  1. Monstera.  This hip new plant is predicted to be gracing the homes of many plant-lovers this year! It’s certainly intriguing and definitely a must-have! I mean, aren’t those leaves GORGEOUS?! It will add tons of character to any space.  2. Fiddle Leaf Fig.  Ok, so just because  the Monstera is moving into first place does NOT mean we have to say goodbye to one of the most striking plants of all. I will forever have a soft spot in my heart for this little guy! It’s always a show stopper.  3.  Rubber Tree Plant.  What first got my attention about this beauty were the shiny, perfectly shaped leaves! They may start out small, but can grow over three feet tall – yes please! A very versatile plant indeed.  4. Asparagus Fern.  I love how light and airy this plant is! Not to mention, how it grows and hangs so beautifully on a shelf or side table. It’s a plant that adds great texture to any room!  5. Inch Plant.  Another great hanging plant that has gorgeous color and texture! If you are looking for a plant... read more

Minted: Through The Lens Photography

My home is turning into a jungle…and I’m loving it! I feel like I can never have enough plants. But when you start to physically run out of room, it might be a sign to step back and walk away – even from purchasing those amazing deals sometimes. But, another way I can introduce some natural green elements into the home is through art! Minted‘s new photography prints are the perfect way to add a statement or play up a certain theme or atmosphere for your home!  This beautiful Summer Yellow Cactus print is part of the Through the Lens challenge! It’s the first photography-only competition hosted by the independent artist marketplace. Through the Lens was the second largest challenge ever for Minted! With almost 5,000 submissions, 459 new pieces selected and 248 total artists represented., it’s all very impressive!  These exclusive Minted pieces just started to make their debut onto Minted‘s site and are a must-have!  I am in love with the color and tone of my new print! It seems to fit right in near my new plant wall in the living room. I’ve been slowly transforming the space to feel a little more boho-chic and this print really helps set the mood in the room.  Whatever you style or aesthetic, you can spend hours browsing through all the many lovely photography prints available. It’s almost impossible to leave empty handed! There’s something to be said about capturing the natural and physical state of places, objects and people. Don’t you think?!  XOXO,... read more

Six Interiors That Showcase Lovely Tanned Leather Sofas

|1| Ok, so I’ve been missing a lot around here lately! I am sorry and please bare with me as I am trying my hardest to find balance in my life as of late!! I’ve been doing some extra work on the side, contributing to other sites so that I can start making a little more income for my family. Because, if I am being honest, I can’t really provide a whole lot otherwise. It’s a vicious cycle my friends!! So, I hope you can forgive my absence and continue to understand!  On another note, I’ve been really excited to share with you these six interiors that showcase lovely tanned leather sofas! It’s been kind of a dream of mine to own one and these interiors prove exactly why I’ve been a little obsessed! Tanned leather sofas feel timeless and sleek, no matter the interior in my opinion. Which brings me to my next point, they suit ANY design style, which is rare! I’ve seen a lot of grey or navy mid century sofas around as of late. And I was super tempted to jump on the band wagon, but it feels like it’s too much of a fad and I felt a little put off by that (I took that risk with our bed!). Although grey is a great neutral, tanned leather is a fabulous piece that can stand out or fit in to any environment – as you can plainly see: |2| |3| |4| |5| |6| I would love to know what you think about the idea of a leather sofa in your home? XOXO,... read more

Over-Sized Art For Your Walls

Alright friends, it’s time to swap out your gallery walls and small art prints, because this year things are about to change in design: a switch from busy to big!  I decided this year, I really wanted to make steps toward simplifying my walls when I can, where I can. At heart, I love pretty decor (some may call it clutter), but my walls can really help tame down the space and add some balance. I’ve taken down my gallery wall to help simplify the overall look of the space and introduced this GORGEOUS Minted print to our living room. The Monochrome Sky is a window where I can pretend our home overlooks this peaceful and serene view. I wish!   I love the bohemian vibe our living room has because of one switch! I’ve really struggled with identifying my style in this space, but we’ve finally found a theme that sits well with us – this beautiful print is just the first step to a much bigger change, which I will share soon!   What I really want to know is how you all feel about this new trend? Are you sick of the gallery walls and small prints clumped together? I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for this change!  XOXO,... read more

DIY Hanging Planter Shelf

I am finally back from our two week long holiday! So sorry for the absense. It was really nice for us to spend some time as a family, relax and focus on other things for a little bit. To be honest, I was feeling really overwhelmed and uninspired for a bit leading up to our vacation. But it’s amazing what some time away from the hustle and bustle of life can do for the soul.

Command Decor Damage-Free Wall Tiles

I am a compensated 3M-sponsored blogger. Opinions are my own and additional products used in the project were selected by me. Not too long ago, I gave Violet’s room a mini makeover, but today I’m back and sharing even more little additions to her space!! For all you who rent or  hate putting holes in your walls, this goes out to you! Violet’s new wall is just too pretty that I couldn’t bare to damage it for the sake of hanging some art or decor. When Command Brand from 3M contacted me asking if I would like to try out their new Command Decor Damage-Free Wall Tiles, I said one big YES PLEASE! I love how Command Decor gives me the freedom to customize arrangements,  swap out my art as often as I want and without damaging my walls. All you do is hang, change and rearrange! Which means, renters and nail-hole-haters, stick away! And that’s just what I did! Materials Command Decor Damage-Free Wall Tiles Smooth, sealed and finished indoor surface Instructions 1. Begin with a clean and blank surface. 2. Take your damage-free Command Strip and attach the black backing of the strip to the black backing of your tile. Press down firmly until it is secure. 3.
