Styled Buffet…

I put some birds on my walls the other day. While shopping at one of my local antique shops, I found these cute bird prints that were originally a calendar. I attached them to the wall with a simple strip of washi tape. It was an easy way to add some great art! Most everything [...]

DIY Tray…

Today I have the easiest DIY for you to try! Now, I’m not the most fond of completing DIY’s. I’d rather snap my fingers and magically create something. But since that doesn’t work, I’ve made a New Years resolution of being more hands on. Here’s the easy peasy DIY: I sometimes prefer displaying items on [...]

Get the look…

Image: My bedroom on Instagram I posted my bedroom on Instagram the other day (simply because I was proud of myself for making my bed…hehehe) and received some questions about the decor, paint and accessories. So I decided to make my bedroom this weeks Get the look. Some of the items are the actual items [...]

On a personal note…

Image: My Instagram As I write this post, I am gazing upon a fresh pile of snow while staying warm in my cozy home. It seems this weather has got me dreaming of much warmer climates. I am a bit of a cold weather baby…especially this year. Weather has nothing to do with this post [...]

Festive in January…

I was pretty quick to take down my Christmas decorations this year. Mostly because I had the flu through the holidays, which meant I was laying on the couch looking at the decorations for a long.long.long time. I decided to give the mantel a festive look for New Years and the month of January. I [...]

Our Potted Christmas Tree…

I posted a picture of my potted Christmas tree on Instagram and got a really great response from people wanting to do the same this Christmas season. The reason we decided to go this route is because we want to re-plant it once Christmas is over. Our good friends have a gorgeous farm in the [...]

Enter to win…

Serena & Lily invited Simply Grove to take part in their holiday promotion. They asked five bloggers, including myself, Oh Happy Day, Design for Mankind, Gal Meets Glam and Dallas Shaw, to choose different parts of their home to decorate for the holidays, using their favorite Serena & Lily holiday items. I quickly chose my [...]

Last week, I shared briefly about the Land of Nod event that I hosted at my house. Here are a few images that Allison Corona captured from the party. It was a cozy night with so many fun moments! Read more about the event here.    

A mini library for my kids…

I have been wanting to add a reading corner in my kids bedroom for awhile now. Their bedroom, which they share, is a really large space and perfect for adding a fun, educational area. I partnered with Target to create this home library project. The Target School Library Makeover program is part of Target’s commitment [...]

Nod Events…

Images via my Instagram. This last Thursday, I hosted a Land Of Nod event at my house. It was beyond fun!! Lia Miller from Land Of Nod came to Boise and joined us for this fabulous event. We had the best giveaways, fantastic food and of course awesome gift bags. I don’t have the pictures [...]

Share the Season…

Fall is here and cold weather is upon us. Well, most of us anyways. In my home, I don’t necessarily decorate with autumn tones, like red, burnt orange and brown. Instead, I focus on textures (fur, cable knit, wool) and dark tones (gray, black, chocolate brown) in my accessories  to create a fun, moody space. [...]

Lala & Grove…

Several weeks ago I made a fun trip to Chicago to collaborate with one of my favorite humans ever! Trina of La La Lovely, who I have the privilege to call my dear dear friend, needed to update her living space. She already had great pieces in her home but needed some editing done. We [...]

Update {who left the lights on}…

I recently installed Lutron’s Maestro Occupancy/Vacancy Sensing C·L Dimmer in our home’s entryway. If you missed the fun video, see it here. I wanted to give you an update on the dimmer and my post installation thoughts. First, the dimmer was very easy to install, if I can do it- you can! Second, it has been beneficial to [...]

Updated Living Room…

First, let me start by saying that Bear LOVES to jump in front of the camera! Every time I take my camera out, he plops down wherever I’m shooting and just waits for his debut. Half cute, half annoying. So I’ve done a little updating to my living room. A few awesome changes that have [...]
