Scandinavian Inspired Christmas Tree Ornaments

Christmas is almost nearing and I’m getting super excited! Every year, I try to make at least one handmade ornament to add that personal touch to our tree. This year, I wanted to try something a little more bold and modern. I stuck with very clean and simple colors: black, white and pops of metallics (mostly gold and silver).  read more

Hello Makeover: Painting Walls White

October 17, 2014

Painting Walls White

The dining room makeover is in full swing people! There is so much planning, time and a whole lot of energy that goes into these projects. But it is so worth it all! We’ve partnered with Sherwin-Williams to give this space a much needed overhaul! This, my friends, is beyond exciting! 

Painting

A couple years ago, Sherwin-Williams introduced designer-inspired interior and exterior paint colors (wallpapers too!) to US homeowners. It had such positive feedback that HGTV and Sherwin-Williams decided to release their amazing products into Canada as well!  I was so lucky as to have the honor of giving HGTV Home By Sherwin-Williams a try and I must say, I am without a doubt sold! I can’t help but get just a little excited when I find paint that not only looks amazing, but has fantastic quality that I know I’ll just keep going back for more!

So, good-bye green walls that were just not right for me and hello fresh white walls! In the end, we went with Incredible White (7028), which was the perfect shade for us! This is just a little sneak peek of the room transformation, but I will be giving you a formal introduction soon, so stay tuned! Also, you might have noticed my official project hashtag on Instagram, #hellomakeover? I wish I could take all the credit, but really it was all Joel’s idea. It’s a fun way to see what we are doing in each space in our home. Feel free to follow along!

Bring Vegas Home

October 15, 2014

When I was asked by Vegas.com to be part of the Bring Vegas Home challenge, I couldn’t refuse! They asked me to put together a room design based on The Cosmopolitan hotel as my inspiration. What really caught my eye were the beautiful hotel suites! Here is what I came up with! 

Bring Home Vegas

1.  I noticed the suites had beautiful, bright lighting. In my room design, I picked this lighting because of it’s warm brass color and unique shade shape!

2. The large black and white prints give the room a classic and timeless look, like these prints here and here.

3. The bedding was clean and simple, but I threw in a few modern pieces from here and here to give it a little more personality!

4. I loved the mirror in the suite with that lovely design, so I wanted to add a little bling to create the same effect. Something that would similarly catch your eye, much like this one.

5. The furniture in the suites had nice curves, were simple and had classic shapes. A chair like this one is a must!

6. The touches of natural wood in the hotel suite really created a welcoming environment, so adding a side table like this will create the same feeling.

7. Having a bold rug can create an instant sense of style and tone to the space and this one would be a fabulous addition to the other pieces in the room.

8. The pillows in the suite were very asian inspired, giving the room a very distinct vibe. Pillows like this, this and this are very similar in style!

9. The bed is the most important piece in the room. It’s not only important to find one that’s comfortable, but acts as a strong focal point in the space. This bed has a gorgeous shape and bold color that will instantly elevate your room to feel like a retreat!

Bring Vegas Home

Creating a room to look and feel like a beautiful hotel suite is a lot more achievable and affordable than you would think! The Cosmopolitan hotel has some gorgeous rooms that make for some great inspiration. What do you think?!

Wednesday’s Wishlist

I’m back with another Wednesday’s Wishlist! The weather has been so amazing here lately (knock on wood), but I know soon enough that will all be changing. I’ve gathered some seasonal favorites this week to prepare for the cold months ahead! 

Wednesday's Wishlist 4

I am very intrigued by these brass Snake Candleholders! I’m thinking they would be perfect for Halloween decor and I would even go as far as keeping these out all year round!! Aren’t they fabulous?! 

Cold weather means dressing a little warmer! These Plaid Socks are a must for the mister! 

I might already own this Plaid Scarf in red, but I love it so much I would go back and buy another! It’s both ridiculously cozy and very trendy for the upcoming season! 

I’m making the kids play outside as much as possible while the weather is cooperating. But soon enough, they will be indoors  a little more often. Why not plan ahead with some fun craft ideas in this Martha Stewart’s Favorite Crafts for Kids? I think so! 

Hope your week has been treating you well so far! 

XOXO, Lidy
