All this week we’re sharing inspiring decor from Europe because, well, after MONTHS of planning I am FINALLY there! By now I’m likely ogling the designer labels through shop windows while filling an entire memory card with pictures of the Eiffel tower alone. Speaking of, this iconic Parisian landmark is quite the point of inspiration… Continue reading Parisian Perusing
So, like I mentioned, this week I am off and away in the UK (then Paris!) to visit a dear friend who’s expecting her first little girl in July! (If your comments don’t appear, that’s because nobody’s home to approve them. They’ll show up when I return!) So what better way to celebrate such a… Continue reading London Calling
So it should come as no surprise that I really dig Ampersands. I mean, I have an entire pinterest board for them. There’s one in our blog header above (though you can’t use an & in a URL. Bummer.) and I seem to be drawn to them every time I end up in HomeGoods. So… Continue reading AND some Decor
Raise your hand if you’re a Target fan. Yes, a room full of people who appear to want to high-five me. Excellent. Then you’ll know how this goes. So, I found myself running in to my local Target for a ‘rare’ (so, only my 3rd stop that week) trip to peruse the latest decor and… Continue reading A Pillar of Inspiration from Target
So you know how it goes. You’re scrollin’ on down….down down down…. through your pinterest searches and then WHAM you get hit with inspiration. Mine came from this: I mean, GORG right? I saw it and was instantly getting that angel chorus sound effect in my head. You know the one. Fortunately, I had some… Continue reading A Quick Bathroom Pop
Sometimes you get an idea… and you just have to try it. Usually I have pinterest to blame. Milk glass has fascinated me since I was a kid. My parents’ house backs to a creek and woods and I used to scour those woods for ‘treasures’ as a kid. There were all kinds of antique… Continue reading Milky Window Gallery
I am determined to make things greener around here, no matter what the weather is like. The only other obstacle indoors? Bill’s brown thumb. I think this was a peace plant. Was being the key phrase. Tsk tsk. So I knew when we went to Ikea that there were new plants in our future. Like… Continue reading More Flowers!
So, normally, DC would be an absolute ZOO now, blanketed in tourist in town for the Cherry Blossoms. Mother nature seems to have had other plans, and instead we’re under a winter weather advisory. Thanks for nothing, Phil. So since the cherry trees are NOT blossoming just yet, I turned to my local craft store… Continue reading Cherry Pink Spring Mantle
So you may remember for winter I warmed a few of our pillows up by wrapping them in a sweater. As cozy and comfy as they may be…. sweaters make me think of the cold. And I’m done with the cold. Dee Oh En Eee DONE I tell ya. So when I came across these… Continue reading Springing for Stripes!
I don’t know about where you live, but this past weekend Pittsburgh was a true delight with temperatures creeping on 70 degrees! Though we had our Saturday filled with adventures at Ikea’s BYOF event (more on that later this week!), Sunday was spent enjoying the warmer weather in the city, complete with a picnic dinner… Continue reading Welcoming Spring
You may recall me joking that I was going to work through John & Sherry’s book, Young House Love much like that movie about Julia Child… This was seriously 99% joke though. YES I draw a TON of inspiration from everybody’s favorite dynamic-diy-duo, but I SWEAR not all of the projects you see here are… Continue reading Book Project Bonanza Vol. 3
Monday we unveiled our updated bedroom with a new pop color, Kermit Green. And you may have noticed the new artwork above the bed. Let’s take a closer look. Oops! Forgot I wrapped it! As it had sentimental meaning, I actually made it specifically for Bill for Valentine’s day. Let’s let him open it first.… Continue reading Showing the Love ~ Inexpensive Art
Earlier this month we shared some simple updates we did with our little RASTafari hack including some simple organizing as well as a re-styling. If you read carefully, there was a teaser about coming updates to our Pittsburgh bedroom. Well it’s FINALLY time to share them with you! Fortunately, Kermit approves of the changes. You… Continue reading It All Started with a Lamp ~ Or, the Bedroom Revamp!
For the longest time I have been on the hunt for one thing. A tray. I know, I know, I have a ZILLION trays, what do I need another one for? I get it, I get it, there are a LOT of trays featured here. But there’s a special one I’ve been on the hunt… Continue reading Styled Containment of Dresser Clutter
It is cliche, but sometimes it really is the little things. During one of the FIVE stops at a Target we made this past weekend (are we the only ones who find ourselves detouring to Target whenever we’re in a new place? The prices and what’s on clearance are always different!) we came across some… Continue reading Fridge Flourishes
