I am at the happy place where I – finally – have plenty of wall frames to fill with photos, art and quotes. How about a happy go lucky message that combines three of this year’s trends? And two free printables with some diamond vectors?
Something sparkly like – say – diamonds, some gold for extra glamour and a decisive touch of yellow.
Last weekend was sunny and warm, spring was coming all around the yard. It only made sense to bring some of that spring inside. I raided our yard and even though it’s has barely started getting green, I found a few flowers and branches to bring in.
This post is about succulents, raiding our own yard for flowers, how TwoPlusCute passed 1000 pageviews in a day (1308 to be exact – but who’s counting) and my technology breakthrough that will – undoubtedly – awe people.
Armoires, while so practical, are often bulky and can be hard to style. I have seen them pushed in the corner of a room, often used as catch-all wardrobes, towering over everything, like a giant living in Hobbiton. Being into sleek, low profile furniture myself, I did not think I was up to par, styling one.
Or so I thought, until Chairish invited me to style an armoire for their Spring Refresh challenge. After looking around their armoire collection (and doing some soul searching “can I do this?”), I replied with a nerdy “challenge accepted” and actually got so inspired that made not one but, four style boards to share with you.
My crystal ball shines brightly (gave it a good polish earlier) and is ready to predict this year’s trends.
Design trends always mirror the combined economic and social momentum. When the finances were in a rather dim condition the past few years, frugal living and curb alert saves were not just necessary but also – thanks to bloggers -they became the new cool.
It seems finances are getting all better and interior design trends mirror that. Spoiler: 2016 will be the year of gold and diamonds.
I wanted a copper accent for quite some time now. I was thinking that perhaps, a pendant would work but I was not budgeting for it. Well, I happily report, I think I scored again at Goodwill. Okay, maybe not “scored” (you’ll be the judge of that) but 3 dollars for all this awesome coppery decor, is a happy moment for me.
I found a vintage (looking) copper (plated) chafing dish slash fondue and immediately thought of not one, not two but, 10 ways to use it at home and none of them include cooking!
We finally have a finished accent wall in our living room. Way back in July, I took the living room by storm and painted every wall. Every wall except the accent wall that is facing the sofa. For months, we sported a quirky and totally artsy wall, decorated with…paint swatches.
