Coral + Aqua Guest Room

September 2nd, 2014

Welcome back from the last weekend of summer! I’m always sad when summer ends, it represents the best of times and while I enjoy fall and the holidays and eagerly await spring, summer reigns supreme as my favorite season of all.

I mentioned a few weeks ago that I accepted a design challenge to create a space in partnership with Del Mar fans. They sent me a gorgeous fan and the long weekend spent in Las Vegas gave me that extra day to put the finishing touches on the room.

This is the guest bedroom for the house we bought earlier this year. With the decorating I did my usual thing, combining second hand or vintage finds with stuff from flash sale sites or discount retail stores, much of it on sale or clearance. It’s a small space, only 10 x 11′ but now it’s cozy, colorful, and comfortable (see the before in this post). Here are some of the pictures I took yesterday with sources at the end.

Best of July + August

September 1st, 2014

Greetings and Happy Labor Day everyone. It’s September y’all – wow, so hard to believe. And the last four months always seem to go the fastest right? I’m headed home to California tomorrow but wanted to pop in and share the not to miss posts from July and August, including a few DIY projects and the highlights from our ongoing home renovation.

The Nevada home makeover began by removing the popcorn ceilings; two great topics took place in the comments, first 2) counter vs. bar height in kitchens and then 3) disappearing microwaves. A few DIY projects 4) quotes with watercolor paints, 5) decorative box charging stations and 6) a new wall gallery and daybed in my daughter’s room.

Enjoy the rest of the long weekend!
