What I've been Up to In My Home

As I have mentioned, we purchased our first home a few months back.  Here is a peak into what I have been working on. 

This is a shot into my kitchen.  We needed a set of counter stool badly.  
(And new paint, but we are not talking about that today!  
Not to mention, a new back splash in my dream world!) 


Because I am working on a budget, I turned to overstock.com and purchased this set for an awesome price.
They met all my requirements: 

* Had to be COMFY...well this was more of my husband's requirements!
* Had to have a modern flair without going too overboard...I love the square cut-out in the back.
* I really wanted white...These are more of an off-white but they work.
* Had to be able to wipe down...My daughter + ketchup fingers.  You know what I mean.  These look like leather, but are vinyl.  Very easy to clean up!





Also, we have gotten our dining room painted.  To find out how I made sure I picked the right color, take a look at this post.

Here is the BEFORE:

And here is a peak of the AFTER.  I still have work to do in here -  such as recover the roman shades, put artwork up,  & hopefully get a new light fixture.  So far though,  new paint makes all the difference.  I love how it is coming along!


We are also working on making over our 1990's wallpapered bathroom.  Hopefully, I will get those pictures posted soon!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. The stool that you have bought complemented the wall counter top shape and color. It's as if the stool and the counter top came as a package. Vinyl covering is low in maintenance and can last for a very long time, so great pick on that. Congratulations for having such beautiful house, by the way!

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.
via
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.

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!
