It’s been established that the cat owns the house and she’s just generous enough to let us sleep in it, clean it, and pay for it. Would you like a side of cat hair with your steak? She’s living the American dream.
Goodbye, Brains! That’s what we’ve been saying all week. We finally got rid of the ugly wallpaper that looks like brains in our half bathroom, also known as the powder room where all the ladies go to powder their noses. Out of our three bathrooms, it’s the one that visitors use most often because of [...]
It’s summer! Time to dust off the grill! We had a BBQ, Memorial weekend. It’s always a lot of fun hanging out in the backyard but more people means more chairs! Usually, we have two separate patio tables in different parts of the yard and they each seats four. This is plenty of seating for [...]
The dining room received a splash of color! Behold, a teal accent wall, just as I promised. I went with Ralph Lauren’s Blue Lagoon. It came out darker than anticipated…and greener. But I’m glad it did because there’s a lot of blue in the room and the greener hue keeps it from looking too matchy-matchy. [...]
Last week, I put my decorating obsession to good use and gave my parents’ master bedroom a complete makeover. My mom’s initial complaint about her bedroom was the paint color of the walls and the ceiling. The drab yellow definitely had to go. My main concern was its wasted space; the large room felt empty [...]
We finally put up our hammock! It is amazingly comfy…once you get in, you won’t want to get out. The two of us fit in it together very comfortably. Nap time? Yes please!
Feels like we’ve been playing musical chairs in the dining room lately. Thankfully, I think these are here to stay! My Eames side chair replicas are here! Yes, they are replicas because I’m way too fickle to spend $2,000 on six dining chairs. I’m very happy with their quality and how they look in the [...]
I finally gave our unfortunate, ugly kitchen chairs a makeover! These wrought iron chairs, complete with green plaid cushions, belonged to the previous home owners. They were quite an eye sore. But with a new coat of white spray paint and new upholstery, they’re looking much more french-chic and less grandma-lame. Tada! Started out like [...]
I mentioned when I got the Plycraft lounger that a sheepskin rug was on my list of to-gets. After a trip to Ikea, I decided that real sheepskin is a little hard to swallow. Walking on it will cause us some moral dilemma and induce flashbacks to Disney movies. Thankfully, Ikea offered a cheaper, faux-sheepskin [...]
Here it is, my new, large Nelson saucer pendant lamp, courtesy of the DWR Annex Sale. Full credit goes to Scott, best boyfriend ever, for dealing with my ceiling lamp musical chairs and installing this big daddy for me. Scott = Chico from Divine Design on HGTV. We were debating between the medium and the [...]
