Friday Finds…

    So, here’s a question. Regarding the colorful wall. I have heard that having a single colorful accent wall is a current decor no-no. And blog trends seem to show that. But is the only alternative (if you want a bold wall color) to paint the entire room? what is your take on this? I really like color. Generally I add color other ways, like with pillows and curtains but sometimes a bold color sounds great.

    • Hi, hope you don’t mind a a reader and lover of Effortless Style weighing in on your question. Our 1940 house is small with an open staircase between the kitchen and family room. We painted the staircase wall charcoal gray and have white walls elsewhere. You can see the white kitchen cabinets with gray quartz countertops from the stairs. This is our “no-no” accent wall and everyone loves it. If my husband would agree, I would even wallpaper that one wall going up the staircase with some fabulous bold wallpaper. In a small home, I love accent walls for pop.

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 […]
