Em’s baby boy will be here in under a month….and we’ve finally got his room cleaned out and decorated for him!

It took a while to decide the color scheme. Emily kept on going back and forth between a b+w nursery or using softer neutrals of grey + cream. Grey and cream and natural wood tones felt more cozy and babyish, so eventually this color scheme won.

Once we decided on color it was time for the star statement wall, which really makes the room. It was a labor of love and took a really long time, but it was worth it! Come back tomorrow to find out the nitty-gritty of this process.

Jane is now 21 months so will make the transition to a toddler bed in just a few months. Her crib HERE will eventually make it into baby boy’s room.

His clothes are washed, diapers are stocked in his room ready. Now if we could just decide on his name! ‘Ben’ is up on the door for a trial run.

Do you have any boys names you are loving? We need some help!

Thursday, February 25th, 2016

I have spring fever, how about you?
Even though it snowed this week, we’ve had some sunny, warm days that puts me in the mood to open all the windows and start spring cleaning!

Pillow fever always starts with the weather change.
Away with heavy winter layers and in with the new…

I cannot believe the price of these pillow covers!

Changing to all down inserts means you really can change up pillows seasonally with covers like these for $5 or $6 dollars a pop.

They feel so much nicer than synthetic fill and give you a designer high-end look. These inserts are a crazy low price!

 Can I have them all please?!

She found these little plaques at Hobby Lobby.

They cost $2.99 for a 4-pack.

She gave each plaque two coats of chalkboard paint (any brand will work).

Next she used THIS fine tip chalkboard pen to write her signs.

These look so great in person!

We love little ways to personalize our homes, especially easy projects like these!

A New Family Room Rug for Emily

Monday, January 11th, 2016

Good morning everyone! I have been looking for a new rug for the family room for some time now. The one we had (HERE) was a dark brown shag…so cozy and great value from Costco, but I love how a patterned rug can transform a room and I really craved a big change for the family room.

I saw a great deal on THIS rug at Target for 30% off. Way under $200 for a 6′ x 9′ rug is pretty unheard of plus free shipping, and a local Target to return to if needed was all too easy not to give it a try…

This was the perfect new addition for the new year. It has that ‘new’ smell that has geared me up to de-clutter and clean the whole house! Jane rolls around on it all day because it is so cozy. It has brightened up the space so much and really just updated the whole room.

Crazy how one piece can change a space and I’m so in love with it I could literally put it in every room of the house! The deal is off now, but a similar one will sure to return soon if any of you are looking for a new statement rug?!!!
