Fall Favorites from Target

Fall Favorites from Target

Written by | filed under Living | 2 comments

When I got a peek at the new fall Target Threshold collection a few weeks ago, I went a little crazy on the inside. Then, as soon as it hit stores I was busting through the door at my local store to snag one of the gorgeous brass task lamps for the studio. It’s incredibly beautiful in person, the size is perfect for my desk and the price is pretty amazing. (And, it’s even currently on sale, making it even …

Our Dining Room Makeover Inspiration

Our Dining Room Makeover Inspiration

Written by | filed under At Home, Living | 5 comments

The summer months have been crazy busy for us and with that craziness many (ok, most) of the projects on our home centric to-do list have been pushed to the back burner. By far the room that has been most neglected is our dining room. It’s a big room with loads of natural light and it’s also the first room you enter when you walk in our front door so having it look a fright still stacked high with boxes …

At Home: Our New [Rental] House

Written by | filed under At Home, Living | 3 comments

Last week when I mentioned that we were moving over the weekend, I promised to share photos with you this week. Keep in mind, these photos are very much “before” photos, for sure. We have a lot of plans for updating the space and making it our own (many of which revolve around paint and other similar budget-friendly upgrades), all of which I want to share with you as we move along. This week I’ve been focusing on trying to …

DIY IKEA Rast Hack

DIY IKEA Rast Hack

An alternate title for this post could quite appropriately be, “What I Did Over the Holiday Break.” Remember a few months back when I was sharing the latest on the homefront with regards to our master bedroom? Welp, you can safely classify that project under works in progress. One of the biggest stumbling blocks has been finding the right bedside tables. Our bed is quite tall with a rather massive headboard. Our room is relatively small and needing for storage …

I wanted to share a quick little update today on our progress in the boys’ room! (You can check out the empty space in this apartment tour post.) My goal for the room has always been to make it a super cool space that the little guys love to call their own. But we’re talking pre-teens here, so if …

Loving Kids Rooms

Loving Kids Rooms

Written by | filed under Currently Loving, Living | 3 comments

Lately I’ve been finding myself really seriously inspired by kids rooms. Specifically of the beautiful, modern and largely neutral-hued variety. Whether it be with Scandinavian inspired black and white or bright white walls with subtle pops of juicy color, I find these rooms to be so much more sophisticated than the primary colored kids rooms of yore, while still retaining a certain charm and nostalgia that I find irresistible. Think of these rooms like a beautiful canvas just begging for …

Fall Essentials: My Home Decorating Wish List

Written by | filed under At Home, Living | 2 comments

This fall, perhaps more than any other, I find myself with a serious itch to spend time decorating and sprucing up things at home. I’ve been working hard to finish the organizing and decorating we set out to do when we moved in (um, yeah, six months ago) so I’ve been on the hunt for the last few furniture pieces and accessories we need to really bring things together. I’ve been using Keep to bookmark all my potential purchases (and …

As the leaves begin to turn and the air turns crisper by the day, I’m definitely finding myself in the mood to whip our place into shape before the cold settles in for winter. What is it about fall that always makes me want to organize and clean and get all the linens and extra blankets washed and folded up? One of my favorite ways to cozy up the place for winter is with plaid! We have a whole bunch …

Get Inspired: Oh Joy’s Studio

Written by | filed under At Home, Living | 0 comments

Have you guys seen Oh Joy’s new studio? Of course you have. It’s about everywhere at the moment. Which I actually kind of love because I’m obsessed with her space. The natural light, white walls, painted floors, exposed brick and punchy bursts of color just make me happy. I honestly can say that it is a space where I would be thrilled to work each day. Considering I’m currently feeling ready to ramp things up and start finishing up my …

Loving H&M Home

I’m sure I’m not alone in being absolutely over the moon that H&M finally offers online shopping. For so long I’ve just wanted to be able to buy online and have my pretty little things show up in a box on my doorstep. But what I’m really excited about? H&M Home! This was a complete happy surprise for me when I was first checking out H&M’s site the day online shopping was introduced. Packing loads of style but at prices …
