'UGLY' Show - & - Tell

Aubrey from All Things Bright and Beautiful is here to show off
a little bit of  'UGLY' in her home.
Let's get this show on the road!

Hidey ho, neighbors! It's Aubrey from All Things Bright and Beautiful here to dish on the UGLIES that can be found in my home. *GASP* There are *uglies* in my home???  You betcha. Feast your eyes on these lovelies: There are *six* of these bad boys. Totally awesome. They are hand-me-downs from my parents and they are probably at least 15 years old...missing bars from the bottoms, scratches, stains, dents...you name it! And with two little ones around, you can bet they are getting more and more appealing every day. Can you hear the sarcasm there? And even if they weren't old and banged up...then there would be that lovely fabric on them. At least it hides the food stains well, right? RIGHT???? If I could replace those fuglies with something else right this minute, it would be a really great…

Blog Hop: Tips for Decorating a Kid's Room

Today, I'm over at Lucite + Lavender talking about a few kid's room decorating tricks.  So to find out more about this room, go check it out & get acquainted with Emily's blog!


Charming Chair + Coordinates

This chair is on sale for $299.  Wouldn't it be a cute accent chair to brighten up a space?





I love the colors of this chair.  I think these fabrics would go nicely in the same room as pillows or window treatments.

Parade of Decorative Boxes

Decorative boxes are often times one of the key elements in accessorizing a table/shelf/bookcase.  Not only do they look great, but they can also hide random stuff on the inside :)

Guest Post : A Corner of My Room

Hi! I'm Trissta of Living on the Chic. I'm so excited about sharing a corner of  my master bedroom with you today!  My goal at Living on the Chic, is to decorate my home with as little money as possible. If you check out my space, you can see my living room, dining area, my guest room (which just got moved to a smaller room), and many of my other projects! I'm so excited to share my latest with you.


I picked up this chair years ago and reupholstered it in this great damask material... Love it still! The ottoman was picked up a thrift shop for $6.  I added a Brom poster on the wall and a small magazine rack (that I picked up at Salvation Army for $.50) to hold my reading material... On top, I have a small desk lamp with another giant clam shell as a catch-all. The drift wood I picked up as a souvenir from my trip to Caples Lake, California.
Check out my blog soon to see more pictures! Thank you so much, Melissa for letting me share a 'corner of my room!'

Design Board

Here is a design board I recently put together.  This one is actually not for anyone.  I just ran across the cocktail table and just began gathering items to create a room design - sometimes it's just fun to dream :)  My husband wasn't so sure about the drift wood end table (it's okay, his opinion doesn't count really - just kidding.)  I love the combination of rustic elements with a little bit of 'bling' from the accessories and the mirrored end table.

Etsy never ceases to amaze me.
Periodically, I like to just browse different shops.  Here are few products that I thought were great!  To go to the shop of each item pictured just click 'source' under the photo.

I thought this shop was pretty cool.  You can buy the jpeg file of their images for $1.00 and then put the image on whatever you like - pillow, towel, bag, etc. source

'UGLY' Show - & - Tell

Good morning everyone!  I have invited a couple more bloggers to showcase the 'UGLY' in their homes.  We all have a little bit of ugly in our homes (if YOU don't - the rest of us are jealous!) and sometimes it's nice to see that we are all in the same boat just trying to work with what we have!  But of course, this wouldn't be a design blog if we didn't showcase what we would love to replace the 'UGLY' with!
Today, Amber is visiting from Simple Dwellings, along with Marissa from ROOST!
