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 […]

Black, White, and Green are my Jam: Get the Pretty Part 1

I repeat, black, white, and green are my jam. I love the look. It’s unexpected and it’s fresh. IMO black, white, and red is overdone and harsh. Black, white, and yellow is bumble bee. Black, white, and orange is seasonal. But black, white and green, love. Wanna take a lookie? source YES PLEASE. That pseudo Rorshach […]

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 […]

Stylin’ n’ Organizin’

I had a request for a post on bedroom organization. This is hysterical because I am the most unorganized human being on this planet. I happened to have married the neatest man on the planet, notice I didn’t say organized. He’s neat, he ain’t organized, but this is not a place for my to air […]

Style Those Surfaces, People

A quick way to change a room is to style surfaces. By surface I mean end table, coffee table, console, basically anything with a… you know… surface. Honestly, this is my specialty, this is where I shine. As I’ve made very clear in a previous post, the living room is the heart of our home. […]

Pops of Green(ery)

Disclaimer: I do not know plants very well (at all really). Just like my “design style” I know what I like, it’s how things look. If it’s aesthetically pleasing to me, then I assume it works. Just a few weeks ago I shared my ignorance of houseplants, since then I have been really paying attention […]


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, […]

Gold Spray Paint Epiphany

I love spray paint. I love gold. In turn, I must love gold spray paint. I had an epiphany last night, after including this little number in my furniture addictions: That my table (other than the awesome branches) isn’t too far off: Can I spray paint the bottom of it gold? I was thinking about […]

Hi, My Name is Stephanie and I’m Addicted to Furniture.

The more ridiculous the better. I just love it all. I used to think that a room should be designed around crazy, kooky pieces of furniture. I think I was wrong. Ok prints maybe (mayyyybe, depends on the print), but other than that, no. These bold pieces should fit right in and not be the […]

Manic Media

If any of you have seen my father’s movie/music closet you probably thought, “wow, that’s friggin awesome!” or “wow, this guy must really like music/movies”. I bet none of you thought, “this is going to inspire his daughter and create a freak of nature who becomes obsessive with movies and she is going to marry […]
