A Quickie Lack Hack

Happy Friday! The roughest week of the year is over – doesn’t it feel great to have that behind you? The whole transitioning-back-into-real-life thing has been especially rough for us as David has been battling some sort of illness that’s knocked him completely out of commission for way, way too long. He’s finally recovering, but […]

Rug Swap

Caspian may look like he doesn’t want his picture taken, but if that’s the case then maybe he should try not laying down directly in front of the camera. Juust sayin. I got my hands on a new rug for our living room. It wasn’t planned, but I hadn’t been super happy with our old […]

Somewhere Beyond The Sea…

You may remember when I hung these tea towels over my couch, and I was real excited about it. I was going to get them a frame and everything, which is big commitment in my book. Then I stenciled the wall, and I sure as hell wasn’t hanging those tea towels (or ANYTHING) up over […]

Did It Myself Pillows

The pillows on my couch have been one of those things that I’ve been vaguely unhappy with for like years – but only recently found it within myself to change, after building it up to be this massive undertaking in my head. I wanted something more to scale in the room, and in a lovely […]

It’s Nice To Have Something Soft Underfoot

. Area rugs are one of those purchases that I always thought were kind of out of my reach. The rugs I like are usually super expensive, and what am I, some kind of millionaire? I was hesitant to spend a lot of money on a rug for a lot of reasons – what if […]

Styling the TV Stand

I posted about this on Instagram a few weeks ago -  I didn’t feel like the space next to my TV was looking very good. I liked all the pieces individually, but together it was a lot of brown. I was hesitant to add any more color, because I’ve been trying to keep this room […]

All I Ever Do Is Paint

I want to start this post off by saying that stenciling is the worst. The. Worst. I woke up on a Saturday morning and thought I could run out, buy supplies, and be done by dinner. Two days later, I was finally finished, at MIDNIGHT. After buying several different kinds of paint, in search of […]

Over The Couch

When we rearranged the furniture, I just kind of threw some canvases up on a wall without thinking too much about it. They were all paintings by my talented mother, and while I love them individually, I ended up really not liking them over the couch. They just looked unfinished without frames, the diagonal angle […]


The reason I was at the flea market on the day I found my bar cart was to find a corner cabinet. I had thought it would look good in the space, instead of the busy and cluttered bookshelf the room was currently rocking, and my mom happened to spot the perfect piece for the […]

I Hate My Apartment, Part 1

That title is misleading. I love my apartment. It’s in a great location, it has wood floors, and it’s older so it feels a little more charming. Recently, I’ve been feeling the urge to switch things up, and I’m at a decorating crossroads. There are so many beautiful homes out there, between Pinterest and the […]
