Sprucing up our Hallway

I know I talked with you guys about gallery walls last week and we debated symmetrical vs. asymmetrical arrangements.  And I left you guys hanging about where I was going to hang things for the gallery wall that I was working on. So if you were...

Gallery Walls–Symmetrical or Asymmetrical?

So on my to-do list is a gallery wall for the hallway.  And like a lot of things on the list, it has been on there for at least 3 months.  So I was super excited when Melissa @ The Inspired Room announced she was having a link party next we...

Sometimes it’s the little things…

I had some of my best friends in this weekend for a little girls weekend!  It was a blast – we had so much fun.  But that gave me a lot less time to work on any “big projects” this weekend.  So instead – I want to share with yo...

Velvet Furniture: A Do or Don’t?

Something about fall makes me think about cozy fabrics.  And nothing is more cozy than velvet.  I have found myself stopping several times when looking at rooms and just loving some of the velvet furniture out there.  But I think I wou...

Making a Shelf out of a Stair

We will get to this project in a sec – but first, I want to explain how we got there!  The hubby has been wanting new speakers for awhile.  Since we got married actually.  And he finally found a great deal, so we got them.  Now...

Centered ... and loving it!

Decorating for Fall Indoors

Can I be honest with you guys? I have done a fall wreath before, but I have never done any "interior fall decorating".  But I did decide to do some this year.  Why?  Because I have always wanted to but never thought I had the time or...

Organized Entry Ideas

Since Fall is literally knocking at our doors it is time for me to find a better way of organizing our entry area into the house.  See - summer isn't too bad.  Mostly all we bring in to the house are sandals and the mail.  But throw a...

How much is TOO much in a rental?

Anyone who knows me knows how HGTV-redo-a-room obsessed I am. I love that stuff - can't get enough of it! And it makes my heart go pitter patter to see someone installing a back splash, painting a room or replacing a fixture.  Photo by Vincent M...

Vignette-a-Phobic

If there is one thing that I struggle with, it is the art of arranging seemingly random pieces on a table so that they look purposeful but not staged.  I struggle because I tend to not purchase those kinds of accessories.  If you can hang i...

To Center or Not To Center?

One of my many ongoing projects is to finish off our living room.  And one of the tasks is to figure out something to put over the couch - see visual to do list below. Now here is my dilemma - notice how the couch isn't centered on that wall ba...
