Get the Pretty: A Formal Introduction

Apologies, Monday’s post was a sort of epiphany. I was putting together a haphazard post that blabbed about how much I loved black, white, and green. But here’s the thing, I’ve written more papers than you could even imagine. I have to research, support, summarize, and put in my own two cents and not fall […]

CheapOH Makeover: Exterior Entrance

A little while back I posted this pic: I got some flack for the hideousness of the light. It’s true. It’s hid (as in hideous). It’s the same as all of the bootleg lanterns as every other colonial style house on our street. COME ON! For someone who claims to have such awesome taste and […]

It’s Beeeeginning to look A-lot like AU-tumn

I get pretty festive around this time of year, then it fizzles out around… well, I don’t know, it’s been becoming less and less every year. But when I feel blue, super ‘cited, or crave change I really have at it. This weekend was a combo between craving change and having some super cute frands […]

On a DIY Roll: Pop of Color

I am taking DIYs by storm. All this talk about not being a DIYer is proving me to be a liar. This one also involves spray paint, it’s kind of my thing. I went into blogging dreaming of J.Crew and Elle Decor to be knock on my door, but in all actuality if anyone was […]

Come and Knock on my Door

So original that we didn’t paint our door red because our neighbor lives in a white colonial with black shutters and a red door. We opted for plum instead. Why? Because plum is awesome, that’s […]

DIYessiree Bobbo: Successful Stripes

Hub and I aren’t what you’d call “DIYers”. We are really good at buying stuff “as is”. In fact I still can’t believe I pulled this off. But we went for it on Saturday. You may or may not have noticed I am OBSESSED with black and white stripes. They’re pretty much anywhere I can […]

A DIY SUCCESS Story!

Spoiler: I went for it, and it paid off. So I bought this $20 table from Ikea And it sat in my entry And while it added to the entry it still didn’t feel complete. I thought it needed some styling (which it does) but it hit me when I posted about my favorite furniture, […]

First Impressions

So along with the bed thing, I wanted needed a house with an entry/foyer/lobby. I’ve always loved a furnished entry, there’s just something about walking into a well thought out entrance that makes me feel all cozy inside. Kinda like these: Other than the “to die for” wallpaper or crazy green carpet, these looks aren’t […]
