Over the years of reading about home decorating, interior design, and browsing through thousands of home photos on Pinterest, there have been many color palettes that I have been drawn to. Pink and mustard, baby blue and coral, black and white with splashes of green, you name it. The one thing they have all had in common is that they built the color palette around one colorful item in the room. Whether it’s a bohemian rug with pink and blue medallions or an oil painting of a city scene with red and yellow buildings, you can take the colors from a piece that already has all of them represented to make it feel cohesive.

So remember when we were planning out Adriana’s small apartment layout and decor plans back in November? Well, she has finally moved in and we have some updates to share!
Each year for Thanksgiving, I alternate back and forth between going home to visit my family in Chicago and staying in Houston and hosting a Friendsgiving. This year, Kyle’s family is coming to town and we are hosting at his house! We spent the entire weekend menu planning, grocery shopping, and cleaning in anticipation, so I was happy I had figured out my plans for decorating a few weeks before!
Whenever the seasons change from Summer to Fall, I always feel like I need to do some redecorating. I always have tons of flowers and bright colors on display during the Summer, but I like to bring in some cozy vibes and more muted tones for the Fall. In order to do this easily and on the cheap, I turned to this boho yarn wall hanging project.
I’VE MOVED! OK, this is old news. I moved about a month ago, but it’s still surreal walking into my apartment every evening, seeing the space and realizing it’s just mine. I still expect Megan to walk through the door at any moment (let’s be honest, not to worry, she still does). Even though my mom did a stellar job at forcing me to organize and decorate A.S.A.P.- literally within the first 48 hours of living there – there are still spaces I want to decorate and add to, but I figured I should show you before I start to introduce any new DIY’s!

When I moved into my apartment, my mom noted that it would be really nice to have a wreath on the door. I had honestly never thought about getting one before, since I knew I would only see it for a few seconds a day leaving the house and then a few seconds more when I came home. The more I thought about it, though, I realized how lovely it would really be to have just a little something special to greet me at the door. Continue reading “DIY Non-Traditional Fall Wreath”
I’m finally moved into my new apartment and getting to decorate it DIY style! Well… the style is more of a mid-century meets California meets bachelorette pad, but I love when people can come in, ask where I got something, and I can tell them I made it! Having DIY home decor pieces really makes a home feel unique and give it a personal flair. Most of the time people think of home decor DIY’s as something that looks really homemade and crafty, but these pom pom trimmed sheer curtains are totally chic!
If you have ever lived with me, you would have experienced the great annoyance that is me consistently trying to rearrange the layout of the room. My architect parents were constantly changing the floor plan of every room in our home growing up… I would say twice a year! It was fun and exciting and challenging, and so I learned to do the same with my bedroom. Even at a young age, I would single-handedly push my bed into one corner and pull my dresser into another. Sometimes, it was a disaster, and I had to put everything back after a day of moving. This is how I learned to make my own layouts.
