Buffalo Check Wallpaper Mudroom

9. 10. 11. McGee & Co  Inspiration picture from Monika Hibbs Instagram.

I've been dreaming about this Caitlin Wilson Design buffalo check wallpaper for sometime now. I always envision it in a mudroom, laundry room, or powder room. I think the pop of pattern on the walls would be so fun!!!

In this mudroom imagine buffalo check on 3 walls, subway tile on the main wall where a farmhouse sink would be, brass hardware, carrara marble penny tiles on the floor, some open shelves, some plants, + all those cute accessories. Can you just envision how dreamy it'd turn out?

Who has a room they need help designing? Shoot me an email and I'd be happy to help.

Throw Pillows for Fall

On trend boutique mudcloth cushion pillow covers
Well I don't know about you, but I sure want my home cozy for the fall and winter months. I love switching things up in my home as the seasons change, one of the easiest, and least expensive ways to do this is with throw pillows. I'm kind of obsessed with them, and always switching mine up. When I think of fall I think of layers, textures, and rich colors. Hello velvets, leather, and fur! So I rounded up a few affordable and few splurges of my favorite for this fall season, these could easily transition to winter as well, that's why i love them all so much.

Some of my favorite affordable places to look for pillow covers includes: H&M home, Target, Wal-Mart, and Ikea. And when I want something different and I'm willing to spend a little more I search high and low on etsy and instagram. Happy hunting friends! ;)

Master Bedroom Refresh

shiplap wall

As I have shared before, we moved into our home one year ago. Since then we have been trying to make every space feel like us. In the beginning I tried to use everything I had on hand to make our new house feel like OUR home. The above picture with the thrifted desk was cozy, we enjoyed it, but it was time to turn the space into something we really loved.

We started with the DIY Shiplap wall, I'll share more about that later. My husband decided to tackle this project in one weekend. It was a quick simple project that changed the whole feeling of the room and didn't break the bank.

We have also been slowly painting our whole house. Since we were working on this room we painted the other walls a light gray like the rest of the house. Bye yellowy beige, we won't miss you! ;)

The inspiration for the whole room came from this Shibori wallpaper that I was given from Milton & King. I have been obsessed with anything indigo, navy, blues, etc. I decided to hang the pretty wallpaper like a piece of art in a simple white frame.

I have been known to over do it sometimes. I didn't want that to happen to this space, so I kept things simple, light and airy. I think the shiplap adds enough visual interest that I don't need to fill the room with extra "stuff."

Since we were already working on everything in this room, my husband decided to run the tv wires through the walls. It was a simple project that makes a huge difference. Everything looks more organized now.
Can we talk about this cute rug I got at Ross, of all places, for only $25. :O

I'll share the deets where everything else is from in another post. We had fun freshening up this space. We love hanging out in here now. 

P.S. I know that first "before" picture is horrible quality. We are the worst home bloggers and forgot to snap before pictures before we moved in. So those came from our appraisal documents. Oops forgive us? 

Thank you so much for stopping by! Let me know if you have any questions or if I can help you at all.

Well here I am with my first post on this blog. Before I start sharing our new home projects I wanted to share a project that I had a lot of fun with, my son's nursery. Yes he's almost 2 now but hey better late than never, right? ;)

Well for his room I didn't want to go to a baby store and buy matching bedding, mobile, etc. I wanted to get creative and do things myself. So i begin doing what anybody would do... pinning everything that inspired me. I had a black and white color scheme with pops of colors and the woodland creatures animals theme in mind. I remember even making this little color board for inspiration.

I had a lot of fun through out my pregnancy shopping for affordable pieces for this room. Of course I wanted the pottery barn or west elm glider but my budget wouldn't allow that. So after many nights spent searching on the internet I found this glider that I loved and at a price I could afford.  Same with the crib and that was the starting point. 

In the end I'm happy to tell you that it was my favorite room in our whole apartment. It was bright, cheery and I think most important functional. Hello Ikea cart that helped keep all things baby at the tip of my fingers.
