Baby Proofing In Style

May 11, 2016

I’ve partnered with Rugs USA to bring you this post. I was gifted a rug. All opinions and content are mine. As a stay at home mom, our living room is mine and the kids’ central location. We don’t have another family room or a playroom, so I try to do my best at making the main part of the house safe for Charlie to play, but also not like my house turned into a daycare center. Not that there’s…

DIY Boho Wall Art

February 9, 2016

I’m kind of loving my cheap decor DIY projects lately. Have you guys seen all the adorable yarn and macramè wall hangings? You know the type. They are all beautiful and minimalist and Urban Outfitters names them something dramatic like “Vintage Textile String Art” or whatever. Anyway. I scoured the Pinterest and looked at about a hundred articles and photos for inspiration on what I was looking for. I combined all the ideas together and came up with a piece…

The Purge | Part One

February 3, 2016

Fun fact: I am an obsessive purger when given the time. I hate clutter and I hate knowing there are things in closets and cabinets that are disorganized or stagnant. I have always been this way. Since I have been a little preoccupied with new(ish) baby for six months, I have definitely let my tidying skills fall behind. I mean, I wouldn’t say that I was bordering on being a hoarder or anything. I stay pretty “purged” for the most…

Rug Heaven

January 27, 2016

Did you people realize that Urban Outfitters has an extremely inexpensive and amazing rug selection? I guess it has been years since I’ve looked at their home stuff. I died when I looked over it today! I thought I would share my favorite finds with you. Just click the photos to take you to the site.…

Last Minute Tablescape

December 1, 2015

It’s the holidays and I love entertaining. Like, I LOVE ENTERTAINING. If I could afford to throw parties all the time I would in a second. I must get that from my Grandma Mullis. The only problem besides the cost incurred with parties is time. Where, oh where does a Mom of two find time to prepare for a dinner party? Answer: she doesn’t. Last week my Dad was in town but wouldn’t be able to stay through Thanksgiving, so…

DIY Retro Edison Lamp

November 30, 2015

If it was up to me, the inside of my home would look like it came out of a Restoration Hardware catalog. I love rustic, industrial chic everything. One trend I’m totally smitten with is vintage lighting and “Edison Lamps”. Stores like Pottery Barn, World Market and others have so many varieties of this concept. This one is an example of one of the table lamps that West Elm has right now. Basically, the lamps are designed where the bulb…

Nursery on a Budget

November 17, 2015

I’ve had so many compliments on Charlie’s nursery (and inquiries on how to duplicate it), that I thought I would post about it! The best part about her nursery is that I did everything on a small budget. I borrowed the crib, and the buffet (turned dresser) was a family furniture piece that my mother in law had in her house. The gold  mirror was another hand me down that I had hanging somewhere else in my house. The rest…

DIY Old Ladder Shelf

November 7, 2015

I found this great antique ladder a few years ago when I was living in Iowa. I had been on the hunt for one that didn’t break the bank, so I got lucky when I found this seven footer for only $50. I have always struggled with thinking of a creative way to incorporate it into my decor. I have experimented with hanging my scarves on it in my bedroom, (which was actually cute, but I have more scarves than…

DIY Himalayan Salt Lamp

November 3, 2015

You’ve probably heard of the Himalayan Salt Lamps. Having one in your home has many awesome benefits including removing negative ions from the air and easing respiratory symptoms by cleaning the air. Here is a great article that lists benefits and explains how it works. I have been wanting to add one to my home, but unsure about the visual aesthetic of a giant glowing pink rock with my decor (which is currently vintage/industrial/rustic).…
