I saw this kitchen last week on Coco.Kelley  from The Future Kept and man did I fall in love! The warmth of the cabinets mixed with the coolness of the tiles and flooring is perfect. I also obsessed over that hood! It’s a winning kitchen in my opinion. And speaking of kitchens, check back tomorrow for a special kitchen post!

What do I ALWAYS say about art?? That it’s the perfect shoe to an outfit! Or the pot to a plant. It brings together a room like no other accessory can! My uncle was a huge art geek. He had art from all over the world, and that is what made his home in Jackson Hole Wyoming so amazing!

I’m really excited about Twyla, which launched in October. It is a smart, new way to buy art.  They offer limited-edition works by top contemporary artists made exclusively for Twyla at a fraction of the cost of original work. Twyla’s curated, easy-to-navigate site makes it a breeze to shop for art that is delivered in a museum-quality frame in an easy-to-open box (no drills!) and can even be professionally hung by an expert art installer, which has been expanded to 21 cities: Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chapel Hill, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Durham, Houston, Jacksonville, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, Raleigh, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington DC.

This makes for a seamless, stress-free experience.

I also used to live in Jackson Hole as a child. When I was choosing a piece from Twyla, I was immediately drawn to this horse piece by Nick Turner. It’s five horses in Wyoming, and it takes me back to my childhood in JH. The colors are unbelievable, and they compliment my home so well.

Something else to note is that Twyla is offering free shipping! AMAZING. Shop Twyla here.

The kitchen is easily one of the most notoriously clutter-prone spaces in the home. We all are guilty of getting a little lazy and jamming our dishware and cooking supply in just any free cabinet space. Not only does a messy and disorganized kitchen stress us out, it also inhibits the space’s functionality as well as its aesthetic. In order to give us all a little project kickstart for the new year, I have a few tips to make 2017 the year we all finally get our kitchens organized.

Store Smarter

Get creative with how and where you keep your cooking and home goods. Hang mugs from hooks to create more room in your cabinets. Insert dividers and trays in pull-out drawers and your cabinets to keep your flatware organized and in the right space at all times. Attach hanging containers to a metal rod on your kitchen wall or backsplash to store dish soap and other cleaning supplies in a convenient and out of the way spot. Place what you most often use at eye level where it is easily accessible and hard to lose track off. For items you use less frequently, store them up high, and your heavier appliances and supplies low.

Make Decluttering A Habit

Like any area of your home, you tend to accumulate plenty of unwanted and unnecessary things in your kitchen over the years. Get into the habit of getting rid of duplicates, items that are beyond repair, or pieces that you find yourself never using. Space is valuable and filling it with unusable and redundant things only creates more of a mess. Whether it’s a yearly purge or the weekly tidy up, make sure to be mindful with how you use your space and what you store in it.

Label, Label, Label

HAPPY 2017! Doesn’t it feel a bit surreal? I swear we just got through summer of 2016. Crazy! Every January 1st, I get hit with the organization bug. I want to start organizing every single drawer, cabinet, closet and any other nook. This week I’ve been cleaning out my bedroom, which seems to have become the catch all for life. It’s time to put away my clothes, clear off every surface and create a restful place for my hubby and I. I’ve got 5 easy tips for you to spruce up your bedroom.

1. Invest in good bedding.

I just recently started using the heirloom french linen duvet set from Morrow and I’m in love! It’s the softest linen that I’ve ever owned. Great bedding really does wonders to your sleep at night. I would rather spend more on my bedding than the furniture itself…no joke.

2. Create a light and airy color palette.

Switch out your throw pillows, throw blankets and even rugs for light, neutral colors. This will immediately create a very spa like ambiance for you. Also don’t be afraid to mix and match your sheets and pillowcases.

3. Style your bedside table.

Don’t let it become a storage space for tissues and magazines. Take some time and create order. You will wake up in the morning feeling happier and more in control. I like displaying items such as books, plants, candles, ceramics and vintage clocks.

4. Invest in stylish lighting.

If you have upgraded everything but your lighting, your bedroom is still going to feel dingy. Lighting is a inexpensive way to bring style and sophistication to your bedroom.

5. Display art in your bedroom.

Displaying a beautiful piece of art in your bedroom adds instant sophistication. Try finding a piece that has colors and textures that remind you of relaxation and rest.
