    Love, love, love this! Your seamstress must be extremely talented. The piping is lined up absolutely perfectly. I’m sure I’d have mangled it. The bench looks incredible! Thanks for sharing.

    Gorgeous! Details like that make all of the difference. BTW, Camila, do you have a tutorial for the lovely red-trimmed curtains I see peaking out in these pictures? I’m dying to do the same on my curtains.

    Fab! Did you use a vertical stripe on the bias to achieve the diagonal look? If so, can you source that green/white striped fabric?

    It was a plain striped fabric that was cute on the bias. I purchased it at the Duralee outlet. I don’t have a pattern name for it. Sorry.

    Love it. Can you share the name of your seamstress. INVU just went bankrupt, and I have some amazing fabric that I would like panels and some romans made from.

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.

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! […]

Budget Friendly Bar Carts

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 […]
