Where to Get Beaded Chandeliers on the Cheap

Lucky for you, in my relentless pursuit of affordable, beaded chandeliers, I have curated some beautiful options -  all of which are around $200. For your shopping convenience, below I have organized my budget-friendly…

The Best Faux Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree

  If you can't tell by now, I am pretty obsessed with fiddle leaf fig trees and while I have been pretty darn successful at taking care of the live one in my living room, I ventured into the artificial territory with this one in my dining room. I may feel a little icky about using faux greenery, but isn't this faux fiddle leaf so deceptively realistic? Well, I am going to show you where you can get it (and…

How to Care for a Fiddle Leaf Fig – Black Thumb’s Guide

If you read my post last week, you might recall I mentioned how attention to certain details is what distinguishes a well-designed interior from a mediocre space. I know it sounds so damn cliche, but it is so true. Fiddle leaf fig trees, or indoor plants in general, are a great example of this point. If you haven't noticed, just about every swoon-worthy  space within the past few years includes one of these exotic beauties. I wanted one for the…

Custom Lighting on a Budget – How To

The more I immerse myself in interior design, the more I become aware of what distinguishes a well-designed home from an average one. In particular,  I have noticed that most mediocre interiors skimp on lighting. Not only do I see many homes with boring, builder-grade  light fixtures.

How to Makeover Your Fireplace on the Cheap

I know it has been a little quiet around here the past week, but today I am back to share how I completely transformed my outdated, 1980's fireplace for around $100. So, I've played hooky from the blog for the past few days, but I have a relatively decent excuse. Excuse numero uno is that my one-year-old has really kicked my a$$ lately. You see, he is now a skilled biped who can no longer be contained (I really cannot…

Summer Eclectic Home Tour

I've said it before and I will say it again- I am not much of a seasonal decorator.  With my obsessive tendencies, particularly as it relates to my own home,  I tend to have a hard time getting it just the way I want it and when I finally do achieve a desirable balance, I am not all that  eager to tamper with the mix  as it  could very well could set me off on an unnecessary shopping spree-sort of a domino…
