Thank you all for the amazing comments on last week’s mini video tour of my studio. I had a lot of fun making the video…oh you wouldn’t believe the outtakes. I will have to save them all up for a blooper reel. With your wonderful support I definitely [...]
Confession: After 14 days, I slipped up and broke my self imposed home spending hiatus.
When the announcement came out for the latest installment of the Pinterest Challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. The art above the mantel in our family room has been patiently awaiting a little makeover. I loved the colors in the art, but actually preferred it hanging upside down. It was barely noticeable [...]
The placemats at West Elm are always a work of art, so I framed one as such.
This grey Moroccan print placemat caught my eye on a recent shopping trip. It was one of those “I love it, but have no idea what I am going to do with it” things. I loved the print [...]
I have a thing for keys. I framed keys to include in my family room gallery wall. I love the architecture of keys. Each one is different, yet a key is a key. They can unlock doors or lock things up to keep them safe. Keys are [...]
I have been holding on to this hand painted gift bag for over a year since my in-laws returned from a trip to Peru and Columbia. I adore the brown paper gift bag painted in bright colors. I often keep gift bags to re-use, but I could not stand to give this one away.
Recently I have focused on a few big things in the nursery, like the alphabet flashcard art and the no-sew striped shower curtain curtains, but it is all the little details that make the room personal. There is one special little corner [...]
Remember these adorable frames my sister-in-law gave me for Christmas? Well, I finally got them hung up. It took a while because I debated over two things; the right place and what to frame.
As for the right place to hang them, I thought I knew the [...]
I made this animal alphabet card art for my oldest son’s nursery and loved it so much that it is one of the few elements we have also used in my youngest son’s nursery. I thought today I would share the tutorial for how I made the art in the first place. Here it is [...]
Now that you have seen the completed dining room, lets recap all the handmade details that went into making our perfect dining room. Remember, this room only started with a table and an armoire. Let’s go over the entire makeover from the ground up.
I want to show you a super easy way to decorate the edges of canvas art. I gave my family silhouette art a gilded edge effect with this method. I love how the canvases seem to pop off the wall. Plus, the edges are a great [...]
I added a graphic pop of color to the dining room with silhouette art. I have wanted to make a set of family silhouettes forever. The dining room was the perfect place to add this whimsical, personalized touch. I wanted the family represented, but without literal images. The silhouettes also gave me the opportunity to [...]
I painted something pink! For those of you that know me…pink in my home decor is unheard of (it’s all teal and lime around here). But I was itching for a little girly color splash in my house full of boys. I have wanted to add a dash of pink to the
We found the secret to meaningful art in our home and now we cannot find enough wall space to fill! One of the best relationships we have ever formed is with our family photographer. We used to do lower cost portrait studios or believed for a while we could take our own pictures. When I [...]
In addition to the entry rug swap, we recently had a few other additions to the foyer area. Our foyer is graced with three arched art niches. I felt an immense amount of pressure to find the perfect artwork to fill them. What happens when I put to much [...]
