Fix It Up Friday No.4

Hey you guys! I’m back today with the 4th Fix It Up Friday and I’m super excited about this week’s design! So, what has caught my eye this week? These awesome faux burl wood cubes! I found someone selling a pair of them on my local craigslist and I think they’d make the perfect pair of little night stands!

Especially for a guest room where bedside storage isn’t as needed. These add such a great funky and modern feeling. Let me show you some inspiration I found surrounding burl wood….

Fix It Up Friday No.3

Hey you guys! I’m back with another Fix It Up Friday and I’m so excited to share this one with you! This week’s design is probably my favorite, I’ve even named it; I’m calling it ‘Lush Lake House.’ So cute, right? So let’s get down to it! Whilst scanning the good ole Craigslist I came across these really fabulous vintage chrome and faux leather director’s chairs.

Large Alphabet Art & Free Printables!

Hey friends! Thanks for joining me today, I have a little something special for you! I created some printable letter posters that are available for download here. I was inspired to create these when I was on the hunt for high impact, yet minimalist art for Grayson’s and Sloane’s room. If you’ve been around the blog for a while you probably have heard me talk about them sharing a room. It’s seriously the sweetest thing y’all! Grayson was adamant that he and Sloane share a room when we moved into this house which of course was no problem with us and they have loved every minute of it and we love hearing their little giggles from their room when they are going to sleep at night.

The Lowdown On Our Clawfoot Tub

Hey y’all something I get questions about all the time is the vintage clawfoot tub that we put into our 207 house! The bathroom had a really hideous, hodge podge, slapped together Jacuzzi tub (which totally freaks me out btw. Just google the infections people have gotten from their own jetted tubs. YUCK!!)

Remodeling A Historical Home Vs. Remodeling In A New Build

Hey all! Never in my wildest dreams did I ever believe that I would live in a brand spanking new house. Why you ask? Because I did not want to. Don’t get me wrong, knowing that mine, Alex’s and our two little humans are the only bodies that have lived in this house and the only feet that have walked on our carpet is rather comforting, but I quite frequently feel disappointed in the lack of character and design direction that this house provides.

Tradewinds Laundry Room Inspiration

Hey y’all! I’ve been hard at work making plans, laying out ideas and determining which house projects to start on first. Because we had a little washing machine snafu a few months ago I ended up ripping up linoleum and tiling our laundry room first off. I decided since the hardest part was over I should go ahead and makeover the laundry room before embarking on any other large home projects.

One of the biggest changes (besides the floor which is already finished) is the building of a folding table over/around the washer a dryer to create a really cool built in tailored look and give me a perfect spot to stack the folded laundry room. I wish so much that we could add a sink- there is definitely room to add a small sink to the folding table area but the location of the washer and dryer hook ups makes it almost impossible to install a sink to the area unless we were to have the hookups moved, which isn’t in the budget for this particular project.

I want this room to flow well with the rest of our home which means my ideal color pallet is navy, white, black, gold and a lighter wood tone. Below is one of my favorite inspiration photos for this project.

Tradewinds Living Room Inspiration

Hey y’all! I’m so excited to share my plans for our living room, with you guys! We are really loving our new home and we cannot be happier with the vaulted ceilings in our open living space but it does pose some decor challenges. Sometimes a large open space can feel empty rather than spacious and this is the biggest obstacle that we will be tackling in our living room, breakfast nook & kitchen area.
