  1. What a gorgeous room. Wow! And I love that she used washi tape to decorate the walls — very awesome concept. I am impressed! Thanks for sharing with us. 🙂

  2. We love your use of color. And we especially love the lacquer boxes.

    Love all her color and her etsy shop! I feel so silly, but I didn’t even think of the container store for lacquer boxes…you’re brilliant!

    One of the reasons I love your blog is because of your boldness in using lots of color and pattern. I adore tons of color. In my house, I’m pretty obsessed with colorful throw pillows (what decorator isn’t??) and textiles in general. My base furniture pieces are all neutral, but I love color in window treatments, rugs, using table runners on accent pieces like console tables and bar carts, etc. I’m also currently obsessed with chunky, bold, colorful lamps. I have a giant vintage green one in my family room that my husband and friends thought was way over the top, but now agree is perfect :).

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 […]
