DIY Brushstroke Lamp

I admit, I can be a bit crazy at times. You see, I have a serial re-decorating condition where I am constantly changing the decor in my home. My  condition has left me with plenty of left-over decor including lamps, vases and plenty of pillows (just ask my husband). Recently inspired by a Bunny Williams lamp, I decided to make use of a neglected one- just rotting away in my garage. Today I am sharing a tutorial for this DIY…

Beginner’s Guide: Gallery Wall on a Budget

For the longest time, I have wanted to display a gallery wall in the hallway of my home. I love the idea of displaying a little piece of my family's story for all of our guests to see. Unfortunately, I knew the cost of frames and prints would add up quickly,  considering a single frame can cost up to $50. Not to mention, the thought of a project requiring so many measurements and precision overwhelmed me. Well folks, I finally…

It seems anytime I go shopping for a specific item of…

How to Paint Over Dingy Grout – DIY Gray Grout

If I ever took the time to devise an inventory of worst home decor ideas ever, I think white floor grout would be close to the top of that list (along with wallpaper and popcorn ceilings). While I love the look of dark gray tiles with contrasting white grout, I know it is a mistake waiting to happen between my dogs, kids and loathing of mops. When I completed the initial walk- through of my fixer upper before purchasing it,…

Creating a Kid- Friendly Dining room

Hello friends! After a self-imposed maternity leave, it feels so good to be back. While I have been busy balancing life with a two year old plus a two month old, working out in the gym like a mad-women  and  getting back to my "day job" of digital marketing, I have been inspired to design again. You see, I have been on a recent mission to make my home more kid-friendly. As far as my dining room is concerned,  that…

A Cheap Way to Personalize Your Home Decor

I full-heartedly believe home should be a reflection of its inhabitants. A well- curated home takes time to establish....you can't just make a trip  to your local Homegoods or Pier 1 and acquire all of your home decor within one visit. The house would look "soul-less". I believe certain types of aesthetics lend themselves to display more personal character (think eclectic, global,  traditional and farmhouse), while other aesthetics (minimal modern, neutral  contemporary) present more of a challenge. The more I…
