Eclectic Finds

  1. Love the owl… and the pillow… and the striped throw. Actually I love all of them.

  2. Ty Pennington has a fabric line? Very intrigued by that one and excited to have a look. Love the striped blanket, owl and gold light and totally agree, some ecclective finds definitely make a space feel warm and collected.

    I couldn’t get the link for the striped throw to work. Would you mind re-posting it? It would be perfect for my living room…love all your finds!

  4. Can’t believe that throw is from lands end — it’s so cute!

  5. These are great!!! I am so loving printed curtains again. Hope you can stop by -I’d love your opinion on my powder room makeover!!!

    I love eclectic chic – it’s the best way to make your space your own. Great finds – especially love that wonderful lighting fixture!

  12. Nikki says:

    Simple…I have a globe 😉 I love that striped blanket though…not that I need anymore stripes in my home or wardrobe for that matter!

  13. Thank you, thank you, thank you for showing real style at affordable prices! This week I’ve been lamenting the super-expensive stuff I always see in magazines and blogs, but I know I can count on you to keep it real. These are awesome finds!

  14. Rachael says:

    What great finds! I tend to like things pretty clean and spare, but these would liven up my living room in a cheerful, not-too-much-stuff kind of way! And I am loving all the navy!

    I luv finding pieces that represent different parts of the world. These are all fantastic. On a recent trip to Turkey I discovered beautiful hand made bowls that I just had to bring home. Now they are on my shelves in my family room…

    Have been struggling with my living, and have no direction which way I want to go. Very tempted to just copy this design board! Fantastic (affordable!) choices! What color paint would you recommend with these textiles and accessories? (Please don’t say beige of any shade, lol.)

      I think the space calls for a some what neutral paint color, but don’t worry I won’t say beige. I love Ashley Gray by Benjamin Moore. It’s this lovely putty color that I think would like great in an eclectic space.

      I also think that something in the yellow/gold family would work really well: El Sereno Gold by Benjamin Moore or even a light blue would look great in the space. Hope that helps.

  17. Great collection here! Makes me want to run out and buy all of it! 🙂

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 […]
