My Master Bedroom

For Christmas, my husband gave me a new comforter and sheets - exactly what I wanted (Let's be honest I picked them out:)  While this is not the greatest picture of them, here they are.  Turquoise sheets and comforter with a white duvet cover (not pictured).  Side note: if you need a comforter at an awesome price this comforter is amazing!  We love it!

Why these colors?

Well, ever since I was a little girl I have been a fish, I LOVE to go swimming.  So this color scheme fits me perfectly.  Every night when I climb into bed I feel like I am getting into a swimming pool.  I feel right at home.

I want to add a few other color accents to the room.  Here are the two different directions I am thinking:


-Turquoise with accents of orange, pinks (just a little husband, don't worry:), and greens- 
I asked my husband what he thought of the below fabric, and he actually said he'd be okay with it.  All because orange is one of his favorite colors.  I love how happy and warm this color scheme feels.
 OR

-Turquoise with accents of green and navy-
We are outdoor - lovin' people, so this scheme also fits us well.
What do you think?  Which direction do you like the best?

  1. I love the orange! It's bold and playful... plus isn't orange supposed to be energizing -- good for those mornings it's hard to get out of bed. :)

  2. I think that either choice will result in a beautiful bedroom, but I really like the green and blue. I tend to prefer and more restful color scheme in my bedroom. Can't wait to see where you end up.

  3. I love both options but I think the first is more unusual and will look amazing!

  4. Both are beautiful choices! I love the orange for its unique and trendy flair, and that peacock print is amazing. The blues and greens are more expected, but also more timeless, and might last longer style wise.
    Either is a great option though! I'm excited to see what you choose.
    ps. Just found your blog and am really loving it!

  5. Turquoise with green and navy for sure. I have been trying to figure out how to include green and navy in my mostly blue house, now I have an idea for my bedroom. Thank you. P.S. Love the quote by Sister Hinkley.

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.
via
Add pops of color.
Elle Decor
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!

My Favorite Way to Hide Toys in My Family Room

We were is desperate need of something to hide toys in our family room.  In addition, I really needed something to go along the back our loveseat.  Below, is basically the view you get when you walk into our home.  I didn't want people to walk in & the first thing they see is the bare back of our loveseat.
One day, I was meandering around TJ Maxx & spotted this cute storage ottoman.  Right away, I knew it needed to come home with me!

It has proved to be a fantastic purchase for us!  My kids can easily get toys in & out of it.  It is also a very convenient place to sit & put your shoes on before heading out the door.  In addition, it can easily be moved around to the main sitting area if extra seating is ever needed. You KNOW you have made a good purchase when your husband has said TWICE, "Melissa, buying that ottoman was a really good idea." 
Need some other ideas on how to hide toys?   Cute baskets/boxes, wall pockets (for books), & cubby bookcases …
