    My MIL is here right now & I have to say she's awesome with decorating because she trust me implicitly!! (I actually think she's my #1 fan haha)

  2. Michelle says:

    oh dear; dare I say…my mother! Bed in a bag lady.

  3. Lauren Jade says:

    lol, that picture is a little sickening, thats more like a room in a bag…Good luck !

  4. LindsB says:

    hahahah, im dying laughing- it sounds like my mother! Actually she is not that bad in that not EVERYTHING has to match, but she certainly loves matchy-matchy and it drives me up a wall.

    I cant wait to see the pretty peach and blue room Camila 🙂

  6. Kristin says:

    sadly my mom is very matchy matchy. i try to get her to stop, but she's all about bed in a bag, with the matching wall border, lamp shades and picture frames. seriously… ick.

  7. mrosev14 says:

    I love not being matchy matchy. I used to think that it was a good idea, but I've gotten out of that…thank goodness.

    That room looks like a comforter barfed everywhere!

    I hope you have fun decorating with your Cousin.

    yikes, matching is way overrated! good luck.

  9. Love Where You Live says:

    Yes, my mother is into matchy-match. She loves blue — especially those kind of powder shades. Blue everything. One day she comes and asks for help in doing "something different." Not wanting to push my tastes on to her, I get a bunch of paint swatches — blue is included — and tell her to tell me what she likes. it was a stack, with some different options pulled out for new consideration! She picked blue. cheers -s

    that is the best title ever!!!! Yes, the matchy matchy with the ruffle-ruffle is waaay too much!

  11. Jessica Morris says:

    I have a few older relatives that WERE that way! Not with colors, but with themes! One had a cow themed kitchen and there were cows EVERYWHERE. E.V.E.R.Y.S.I.N.G.L.E item was a cow. Cow soap dispenser, cow hot pad, cow cookie bowl, etc.
    When I was 8 it was pretty much the coolest kitchen in the world 🙂
    Now I can't even imagine living with that!

    Ooooh…tough road, this one!

    I've been helping my aunt redo her guest bath, and she's been very into the hardware matching the vanity light, matching the shower curtain rod – I explained we don't have to be so strict in our coordination – but…in the end, it's her bath, so like you say – I just breathe.

    Good Luck w/ your SIL's apt! 🙂

    That is so funny! Peach and blue! Love it 🙂

  15. Haven and Home says:

    Oh I can't wait to hear how it went!!!!

    I also know some people like that. It's much more personal and fun to mix it up!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
