It’s All In the Details- Stools

June 27, 2020

Happy Summer Sunday! My favorite part of any design project is finishing/styling with accessories and using little details that really make a room special. Stools are so versatile and can be used in every room in your home in multiple ways!

In the entry, stools are the perfect size to slide under a console table until needed for extra seating:

The bath is one of my favorite places for a stool to hold accessories and wine!:

I love using stools in a cozy reading nook:

Stools can be used as little tables:

Have you ever thought of using stools together as a coffee table?:

Or as a plant stand:

Stools are great for outside accessories too! :

Week Two in the New Home

December 14, 2019

I can’t believe that of all the items I am having trouble finding for our new home, it is a new shower curtain for the guest bath. Guests are coming next week!  I am a pretty good accessory shopper but I can not seem to find the right one. I have been shopping local and online.  A friend commented on this photo I posted earlier in the month using two shower curtains:

I really like the look and I thought it was a great idea until I looked at my shower wall. I think the purpose of the open curtains is to have something pretty to look at such as a window:

Unfortunately, I do not have something pretty to view in my guest bath:

I DO have a curved shower rod which I never even thought about before. Did you know a curved shower curtain rod will provide up to 33% more room in the shower?  They say that it helps keep the wet, sticky shower curtain further away from your body so it doesn’t “attack” you like it does in closer quarters!We will see.Read More

Moving Into Our New Home

December 7, 2019

Happy Sunday everyone! I wanted to write a short post letting you know that I am still around, (missed two weeks of posts) and that we have moved into our new home!

new home

Mike and I are now in a one-story home, half the square footage we have previously lived in. Downsizing is hard, (too many decisions to make about getting rid of stuff) but it is also refreshing and uplifting! For example, an armoire that was in good shape that we have moved six times to homes in the past and have hardly used, is now donated to someone that can use a dresser:

Great feeling. I have not had a chance to decorate much since I just moved in the day before Thanksgiving, but being so close to the Holiday’s, I am going to just do some fun Christmas decorating for now:

I am planning to do some painting soon I hope! What do you think about painting these tops of the tray ceiling navy blue?:Read More

Color Crush: Benjamin Moore’s Wrought Iron

July 10, 2018

If you are searching for a rich, warm black that adds drama, then Wrought Iron 2124-10 is the perfect choice for you. You will absolutely love this color!  :

Benjamin Moore’s Wrought Iron is a black/gray paint color that is less harsh than black. Many think of this color as a black, but  I think it can also fit in the category of charcoal gray:

It is a deep dark gray with a softness and warmth to it. When compared to other blacks it is noticeably lighter and more gray:Read More
