    Great idea! There are so many gorgeous gift wrap options available now that would work beautifully as art.

    Glad you all like them! Don't worry I'm not going anywhere! My computer issues are just making things over here run at a snails pace and I feel horrible about it!

    Such a great idea, Camila!!! Love the outside-the-box thinking!! Cheap but chic!

    I think I just said 'chic' bc I just saw your tweet about the Jonathan Adler Warehouse sale. 🙂

    I'm SOOOO jealous! Next year we'll go together. As long as you don't mind me dragging along a few kids…

    Perfect!! I framed Cavalinni calendar "prints" and everyone thinks they're vintage lithos. 🙂 Love the map wrap…and it's so great that you went the extra step by "aging" it! Great, great idea.

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.

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, […]


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 […]
