I love picture ledges with a layered, collected look. I mean, if you aren’t going to layer pieces one on top of another, you might as well just skip the ledge and hang them flat on the wall. Despite my DIY picture ledge only being a mere 3.5″ deep [...]
You guys rock. You had such great insights on the great sectional fabric color debate. Going into it I was pretty convinced Lagoon was the way to go. I may have been swayed by a very gloomy day where the Ink Blue looked almost black and scared me. I dismissed [...]
My husband is an avid coffee drinker. Like, it is probably the first thing he should list as a hobby. I think it is in his blood, literally…he is part Columbian. He has experimented with several coffee machines and makers over the years. I think he has finally settled on his favorite method…freshly ground beans [...]
First of all, thank you for the awesome response to yesterday’s decorating dilemma. So many great perspectives to consider. It looks like navy (Ink Blue) is taking up the lead. West Elm even weighed in on Twitter and suggested Ink Blue. I am going to take the suggestion of several [...]
You guys always have great insights and advice. So, I am coming to you with my latest decorating dilemma. I have mentioned a few times before, we plan to recover the sectional in the basement family room.

It was a joy to create a custom pin board for the Name Your Board giveaway winner, Robin, who named her board “Sunshine & Lemonade Screen Porch”. With such a great name, I just had to know more and help with this space. As the winner, Robin got my [...]

Instead, I have craved quick pick-me-up projects. You know the ones that take only minutes to complete, you have everything you need on [...]

Let me show you how to bring beach living to your kitchen…
Let me figure out how to make your sons dream of a blue and [...]
It’s time for a fresh market collection. Thanks to the wonderful response to the first collection, I plan to update the market around the beginning of each month. Did you miss something from the May collection? You can still shop available items on the
I have a holding area for decor. Is that weird? Throughout our entire basement finishing project I have collected pieces I love here and there. It takes the pressure off trying to accessorize the space all at once.
By the way, have you heard what The Nester is doing? I love that girl…she is a [...]
So there I was sitting nervously, on what seemed to be the tiniest chair ever, waiting for the attendees to arrive. My visual aids were solid, but I had no idea what I was actually going to say. I kept reminding myself it’s only 15 minutes, and if you talk for 10, they can ask [...]
Checkout my new ottoman…it’s big, graphic, and only cost about $50!
I have long loved the pretty patterned ottomans at West Elm. Recently, I discovered the gorgeous rug ottomans at Company C. But, I could not justify the expense, since we already have an ottoman for the new family room. Only downside [...]
Do you Instagram? I do, but I admit I am a newbie. I am still learning the ropes and figuring out what to share. I have an interesting mix going on so far.
I share great finds when I am out shopping.
