Bone Inlay Inspired Dresser {Featured in HGTV Mag}

May 19th, 2014

Greetings all! This week we’re off on a family vacay in Kauai so this week will be light on posts, but I do have a few scheduled. Today I wanted to share a DIY project I completed as part of a painting challenge for Glidden for HGTV Magazine.

I mentioned last year how much I wanted to try this project and when I was asked by the Glidden team to come up with a something creative, this bone inlay inspired dresser came to mind. I borrowed accessories from the guest room and family room to style it up for the magazine, here is the piece that is featured inside the cover.

You’ll find the feature alongside fellow My Colortopia contributors Nicole and Eduardo, we each shared an inspirational idea completed with paint from Glidden’s line and they’re included inside a peel back wrapped cover in the June issue.

The process was simple but time consuming! I started with the $99 IKEA Koppang chest and a Nagoya stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils. The color on the chest is Glidden’s “Rich Navy” and partnered with handcarved knobs from Anthropologie. koppang chest to inlay lookalike

A Touch of Tropical

May 15th, 2014

Yes, it’s true, I’m on a tropical kick lately, and I find myself drawn more and more to accents of bold palm print textiles and carved wood furniture. I’ve always been a coastal inspired girl, the sand and sea palette is present everywhere in my home, but the breezy look of rooms inspired by climates closer to the equator now has me craving touches of the islands indoors.

Tropical interiors take their cue from the islands where you’ll find botanicals in bright hues, ocean blues, and lush greens. Inserting a touch of tropical into your home is a breezy way to break away from coastal inspired looks for a feel that’s more exotic.
