Textile Artwork

Now that my living room is starting to take shape (check out my latest DIY here) I’m starting to source items to fill in the blanks – the blank walls that is. As much as I love my roomy living room, it leaves a lot of wall space to cover, which isn’t always easy when … Continue reading

Living Room Updates: Custom Desk Reveal

Ladies and gents, remember how I moved into a new apartment a couple months ago? Well since then, I’ve kept a couple (DIY) tricks up my sleeve. After all, I can’t think of a better way to spend a 110 degree day than in front of an air conditioner with a paintbrush (yeah, yeah, I … Continue reading

Back to the Basics

I’ve been feeling overwhelmed lately. Not because my schedule is crazy busy or that I have a huge deadline looming in the future. I get the feeling every morning as I stare at my beyond stuffed closet while a nagging voice in the back of my head telling me that I have nothing to wear. … Continue reading

Bookshelves on the Mind…

I’m so excited to share my all time favorite DIY project (past ones include this & this) but here’s a little teaser of the inspiration pictures that I used, have a good weekend everyone! via via via via via

Organic & Urban

After spending an idyllic weekend with my family in Michigan, I came to the realization that sometimes I miss the peace & quiet of suburbia. Call it a quarter life crisis but I wouldn’t mind opening my window every once in awhile and not be greeted by the roar of traffic. Besides these few moments, … Continue reading

Etsy Find: letterhappy

I came across letterhappy during my usual weekend perusing of Etsy. Besides the beautiful and fun items actually in the shop, I loved that Christen was having a “Christmas in July” sale – how cute is that?! The shop offers a wide variety of items ranging from prints to cards to jewelry. I picked out … Continue reading

Who Doesn’t Love a Sale?

Aaaaahhh, summer sale season. The last chance to pick up styles that can actually be worn within the next few months (corduroys being sold in August?!) and my favorite part – snagging them at ridiculously low prices! Beyond the land of summer dresses and sandals, this year I stalked the mecca of summer home sales … Continue reading

Seeking Inspiration: Anthropologie

I am a HUGE fan of Anthropologie. Their gorgeous furniture and hard to miss heels don’t always fit into this gal’s budget but it’s worth shopping in the store just for visual inspiration. I stumbled across this month’s online catalog and was totally captivated by all of the images. I love how they took this … Continue reading

Living Room Mood Board: Periwinkle Dream

I love the mystery of smoky antique mirrors. And when combined with hints of brass there is no color combination that is more sophisticated. For my second mood board (check out the first one here), I mixed moody gray with soft blue to serve as the backdrop for rustic wood accents mixed in with eclectic … Continue reading

Living Room Mood Board: Rain Water

The bright orange and teal combo that defined my last living space has been long forgotten (well, at least for today). Right now, I’m yearning for soft blues, maybe a hint of gray, and for an unexpected twist, pairing them with bright sorbet colors ranging from watermelon pink to lime green. The one theme that … Continue reading
