Bedroom Arrangement Basics

February 13, 2016

A few readers asked if I could do a post on bedroom furniture arrangements after reading my Living Room Furniture Arrangement 101 with all the tips and basics. I believe your bedroom is your space and I like to keep it serene and quiet. Not like the rest of the crazy house! It is the last room you see when you fall asleep and the first in the morning. You deserve a nice room after all you do for everyone else all day!:

Weekend Project

February 7, 2016

Right now I am in the middle of changing up my master bedroom:

I knew the time was coming because my husband, Mike, has not stopped complaining about the white bedding since I first put it on the bed:

He has never liked it. One day I was able to drag him into Home Goods where he found a comforter he liked, (and of course the blue and white also got my approval!) You know what that means- new comforter- new accessories! I have always wanted a rug in my bedroom:

Review of Gray Undertones

February 3, 2016

Undertones. We have learned enough about color to know we can not ignore them. But I have found that knowing the undertones of a color makes the color selection process much easier and less stressful.

So I thought I would do a little review as a reminder of the undertones of gray. Gray is still very popular right now and we should be aware of what makes up the color so we can be educated when choosing a color for our home.  Gray has the undertones of blue, green, violet and taupe:

The most popular grays with blue undertones are Coventry Gray HC-169:

Blue & Beige Bedroom Consultation

January 28, 2016

I have been working online with a woman from Chicago on her bedroom redesign. She found me on Pinterest on my design boards here.  Her design plan is coming out so nice I just wanted to share. Her bedroom was already painted in Revere Pewter and she just needed a little help finding bedding, window treatments and a few accessories that would work well together with the Revere.

Time For New Lamps?

January 20, 2016

I would like you to take a minute and go take a peek at your living and bedroom table lamps. Are they still pretty? Are they more than 6 years old? Do you still like them??

Lamps, believe or not, is one of the most dated items I find in homes when performing home design consultations. I think many people just don’t notice their lamps. They are just one of those accessories that has been laying around for years.  I want to tell you that one of the quickest and easiest ways to update a room immediately, is banishing your old lamps and finding new pretty lamps. They are not so expensive anymore! I found these at Home Goods for only $ 60.00 each!:

Home Goods

Target has great lamp selections and also Overstock, Lamps Plus and Wayfair  to just to name a few. And shipping is free with most companies today when ordering online. They really do make the room perk up and give the room instant interest and personality!

If you are keeping your lamps out of love, I would keep them and be proud to show them off. But if you are not attached to your table lamps and have not noticed them in awhile – except for dusting around- maybe it is time to buy yourself a new pair of pretty lamps!

How do you like the look of my new website?  I would love to hear your thoughts!

Thanks everyone!
