Truth : Dark Walls Luv Unpainted Woodwork

Hey my friends! As promised, I painted the DR and I am super happy with the way it turned out! I wish I would've done it long ago, but sometimes it just takes time to realize what is best for a space. It started to click for me after I began to understand what a dramatic change dark paint in the entry way has made, I should've probably realized it sooner considering our living room is v dark and I have always loved it. I think I was holding out hope that I could pull off bright and airy, READ MORE

Thinking About : My Living Room

Okay, the fall dreaming is becoming a reality. I'm just about to throw on my painting garb and head downstairs to put my first coat of nearly-black-paint on the walls in the DR. I'll be using the same color (Behr paint matched to Ace's Arabian Night) that I used in the entry way and in the kitchen/mudroom. I'm really excited to see how all the spaces will start to come together and relate to one another. None of the rooms on the main floor will have full floor to ceiling black walls, and I READ MORE

Thinking About : My Dining Room

I'm back to my seasonal need to tweak everything inside the house. This happens every fall, it's that whole nesting thing. Our time outdoors is limited, daylight is waning, and we begin to nestle into our winter ways (I'm so damn poetic today). We spend a lot more time in the living room, even eating meals at the dining room table (novel huh?). It's nearly impossible for my mind not to wander when it comes to re-decorating these spaces. The dining room has never been a space that I've felt READ MORE

My Work Space : Part II

Hey-O! Hope you guys have all had a good start to your week. We are just recovering from our epic weekend in Las Vegas, where we wrapped up what might amount to one of the best three days period ever. We had the privilege to see The Killers at the Sam's Town Casino and Gambling Hall, where they celebrated the ten year anniversary of their sophomore album Sam's Town, by preforming Sam's Town live front-to-back, talk about meta. We were some of the lucky ones who were able to witness both nights, READ MORE

My Work Space : Part I

Last week I shared some cool office stuff that I had been eyeing on the internet and elsewhere. I'm just putting the finishing touches on my sunroom turned creative work space, and I'm really excited about how it's all coming together! As I said in the last post, I needed a place to work in my house, and since options were v limited it came down to commandeering the sunroom because it was the least disruptive to the flow of the house. Plus, the sunroom was practically move-in-ready, it made READ MORE
