10 Creative Ways to Spice Up The Wall Behind Your Bed

Hang doorway beads (these one look like small metallic rings) above the bed.

Run upholstered head along entire wall instead of just length of bed.

Paint the wall with chalkboard paint & write a story, poem, saying, etc.

Hang patterned fabric.

Paint a headboard.

Paint wide horizontal stripes.

Hang graphic wall paper on the wall behind headboard.

Paint the wall a bold color and place matching mirrors above nightstands (This one probably works best if you have an intriguing headboard as shown).

Put up beautiful wood paneling (I do not mean the 70's looking paneling!).

Place an over sized map on the wall.

What do you think?  Could you see any of these ideas in your home?


  1. I love those big pink stripes! I have a big chinoiserie screen behind my bed and I just love it!

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.

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??

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!
