One of the things that I’ve focused on over this last year is really nailing down my neutral palette, and changing the things that don’t fit within it. And one of the things on my very long to-do list was to style the book shelves in my family room. These shelves are big and dominate the whole room, so their effect on the room is significant. I actually re-styled them once before (you can see that post here), and it was my highest read post of 2016!
Hi there and happy Friday friends! Today brings us another French Country Fridays, where myself and six other bloggers are sharing our ideas, decor, tips and even DIYs in French-ish style!
This past week was my kids’ spring break, so not a whole lot of blogging got done! However, I am in the process of re-styling my dining room and I blogged about my ideas for a new dining table if you missed it. I’ll be sharing some changes in the breakfast room area soon, as well as (finally!) new drapes for the downstairs! It feels so good to finally be doing some of the things that have been on the to-do list for years!
If you’re a regular reader then you know that I recently made the exciting announcement that I joined the bHome App (You can read all about the app here). And now, those talented ladies invited me to do a Holiday Tour with them, and well, of course I couldn’t say no! This is my third holiday tour this season (one more – stay tuned!) and though it sounds like a lot (especially for a not-so-big house!) I figure it’s better to break it up for all of you anyway. No one wants 50 photos in one post, and this way, I can talk details and really show you each area.
An ottoman used as a coffee table, is actually one of my favorite decorating techniques. It’s a great way to have extra seating in a room, so they work really well in smaller homes. They also add a softness to a space, so if you have a lot of hard edges or your room is “all legs” (meaning you have no slipcovered furniture) they can also help even that out. Also, if you need a larger size coffee table which can sometimes be hard to find, an ottoman can often be ordered in a custom size to get exactly what you need. And of course, they are super comfortable to put your feet up on! For that reason, coffee table ottomans work especially well in family rooms.
Hello everyone and Happy Friday! If you’re coming here from my friend Oscar’s, welcome! I’m so glad you’ve stopped by. And if you’re a regular reader, today I have something special to share with you! This week I’m joining 13 amazing bloggers and we’re sharing our ideas on how to style your home for spring. We’re all doing a different take on the season. Some are doing tablescapes, some just a room, and some a whole house. There are a ton of ideas and all different styles, so you’re bound to find some inspiration! Today I’ll be sharing my new spring kitchen with you all!
I am so in the mood for spring this year! I know we probably all say that every year, but we’ve had such a cold and rainy winter here (for us!) that I just can’t wait to have a little sunshine. But until it actually thaws out a little, I’m starting to think about spring decorating. One color that really screams spring and summer to me is blue. More specifically, the combination of blue and white.
