New Home Tour | Grayson’s Room

December 11, 2016

I’ve had a lot of fun getting Grayson’s new room ready to go, and I wanted to share my favorite details. His last room was vintage superhero themed, which we loved, but he’s not really into superheroes anymore. He’s getting bigger, which makes me die a little inside. I mean… it’s awesome. Anyway, I thought a monochrome theme would be a little more “big boy” and allow us some freedom to accessorize in different ways that still match. It’s nothing…

New Home Tour | Living Room

December 3, 2016

I seriously wish I could have all of you over to have a cup of coffee with me and listen to my Traditional Christmas Pandora station! Since I can’t, I wanted to show you what my living room in my new house is (currently) looking like! I say “currently”, because you should know that I change up my decor all the time. I have even moved things around since I photographed this! Obviously, the holiday decor is out and it…

Deck The Halls With Memories: More Than Decor

November 27, 2016

This post was sponsored by Christmas Tree Shops andThat!. All opinions are mine. I will be honest. There have been years when I really didn’t feel like decorating that much. Life can be busy, hectic, and even depressing. There were times when decorating for the holidays was the very last thing I wanted to do. Our mind can wander into thinking “It’s just stuff. Is it that important? Does it really matter?” It’s somewhat of a subconscious excuse generator. I…

New Home Tour | Charlie’s Room Part 2

October 21, 2016

This post is in partnership with buybuy BABY. All opinions are my own. I know I just revealed Charlie’s room a couple of weeks ago at the old house, but everyone wanted me to show our space at the new house, too! I won’t overwhelm you with photos this time, I will just share my favorite little nooks. I love the soft colors of her room, the neutral tones, and the subtle whimsy of the space. I put the felt…

September 29, 2016

I wasn’t going to post this since we are moving to a new house, but you guys asked me to reveal both rooms, so here we are! Your wish is my command. I guess it’s ok, since I spent all this time on pictures! I won’t chat too much, let’s get on with the nursery tour. I will reveal again later in the year when we are in the new house! Maybe it will be a good excuse to switch…

Fall Home Tour | Back Deck

September 12, 2016

This post is sponsored by Enbrighten Cafe Lights by Jasco Products and it’s advertiser. All opinions are 100% mine. #EnbrightenLife Is everybody feeling like Fall and drinking their PSLs, yet? We’ve had some cooler mornings and evenings here, which has been enough to get me excited for the season change! My back deck was totally empty a few weeks ago, so I was really excited when I got the opportunity to partner with Enbrighten Cafe Lights. I knew exactly what…

Baby Proofing In Style

May 11, 2016

I’ve partnered with Rugs USA to bring you this post. I was gifted a rug. All opinions and content are mine. As a stay at home mom, our living room is mine and the kids’ central location. We don’t have another family room or a playroom, so I try to do my best at making the main part of the house safe for Charlie to play, but also not like my house turned into a daycare center. Not that there’s…

DIY Boho Wall Art

February 9, 2016

I’m kind of loving my cheap decor DIY projects lately. Have you guys seen all the adorable yarn and macramè wall hangings? You know the type. They are all beautiful and minimalist and Urban Outfitters names them something dramatic like “Vintage Textile String Art” or whatever. Anyway. I scoured the Pinterest and looked at about a hundred articles and photos for inspiration on what I was looking for. I combined all the ideas together and came up with a piece…

I died when I looked over it today! I thought I would share my favorite finds with you. Just click the photos to take you to the site.…

DIY Retro Edison Lamp

November 30, 2015

If it was up to me, the inside of my home would look like it came out of a Restoration Hardware catalog. I love rustic, industrial chic everything. One trend I’m totally smitten with is vintage lighting and “Edison Lamps”. Stores like Pottery Barn, World Market and others have so many varieties of this concept. This one is an example of one of the table lamps that West Elm has right now. Basically, the lamps are designed where the bulb…

Nursery on a Budget

November 17, 2015

I’ve had so many compliments on Charlie’s nursery (and inquiries on how to duplicate it), that I thought I would post about it! The best part about her nursery is that I did everything on a small budget. I borrowed the crib, and the buffet (turned dresser) was a family furniture piece that my mother in law had in her house. The gold  mirror was another hand me down that I had hanging somewhere else in my house. The rest…

DIY Old Ladder Shelf

November 7, 2015

I found this great antique ladder a few years ago when I was living in Iowa. I had been on the hunt for one that didn’t break the bank, so I got lucky when I found this seven footer for only $50. I have always struggled with thinking of a creative way to incorporate it into my decor. I have experimented with hanging my scarves on it in my bedroom, (which was actually cute, but I have more scarves than…

DIY Himalayan Salt Lamp

November 3, 2015

You’ve probably heard of the Himalayan Salt Lamps. Having one in your home has many awesome benefits including removing negative ions from the air and easing respiratory symptoms by cleaning the air. Here is a great article that lists benefits and explains how it works. I have been wanting to add one to my home, but unsure about the visual aesthetic of a giant glowing pink rock with my decor (which is currently vintage/industrial/rustic).…
