One Item Every Home Needs...

Or two...a pair of ottomans.

Why?

Well, to start off they are just so dang cute!  I can't help but love them!  They truly are so versatile.

Here are a few different ways you can utilize a pair of ottomans in your home:


Slipped under a console table & taken out and used as extra seating when needed

As foot stools

Just 'floating' in a room and used as additional seating

Used as a cocktail/coffee table

Placed at the end of a bed - perfect for putting on your shoes.  (I love how this looks)

Placed in a nook of your home around a small table (There are three ottomans in this photo, but its okay...who's counting :)

Just a little random mom tid-bit about ottomans:
 One of the greatest characteristics about ottomans in their soft corners.  Awesome if you have little ones running around - one less hard thing for them to hit their heads on.  Also, they are the perfect height for infants/toddlers to stand up to.  My daughter loves ours.  I currently just have one ottoman, but eventually I want a second one to go with it.  They don't have to be exactly the same, just work together.

Do you have a pair ottomans you love?

How to Accessorize an End Table or Nightstand

Stuck on how to accessorize an end table or nightstand? 
There are so many ways to style/accessorize a table, and really there are no rules. However, if you aren't sure where to begin below is a list of basic items to use that you can't go wrong with:
*A lamp * Artwork/mirror *Books * Floral/branches



In addition, here are a few more accessorizing tips to get you on your way:
Use items of varied heights to keep the eye moving.  Have something short, something medium, and something tall.  Use stacked books to add height if needed.

Layer your accessories.  Don't be afraid to let your lamp cover a portion of the artwork.

Group differently shaped items together.  If everything is square/rectangle it just looks boring.

Add pops of color.

Use unique items that mean something to you, such as something purchased from a trip.  These are great conversation starters, and will add a lot of character to your arrangement.

Project Reveal: Church Foyer Makeover

I apologize for being a little MIA on this blog lately!  Life has been busy lately working with local clients, my family visiting, & working on our newly purchased home.

Recently, I completed a project that I would like to share.  A local church hired me to help them redecorate their foyer area.  They wanted something new, fresh & modern that would go along with the existing paint, flooring, and lighting.

Here are the BEFORE photos:


This is what it looks like now!

A special thanks to Palmetto Street Church of God for allowing me the privilege to help make their foyer shine!

Which color are you immediately drawn to?

Since I found this via Pinterest many of you may have already seen it. But for those of you who have not,  it's  Paper Source's Colorscope Chart.  I was drawn to the blues - mostly pool or lake.  There are definitely some qualities in each that would describe me.

What about you?  Is it right on, or completely off??
