Copy Cat Chic Room Redo | Quirky Stairwell

Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Two great things happened in the search for today’s room redo: one, I realized that we need a new category for STAIRWELLS!!!!! And two, the inaugural post is coming from a Domaine Home post entitled ‘Masculine Funhouse’ which is basically all I have ever needed to hear. Pretty good start, I’d say.

I have been struggling to find a solution for my own gigantic empty stairwell for about a year and a half now. There are a few issues I’m contending with, which I think a lot of our readers (and the greater design world) can probably relate to. In my case, it’s a massive gray wall that looms large over the living room, taunting me with its emptiness and its frankly terrifying heights. I had to hire someone to paint it and I’m also aware that I’ll have to hire him back to hang a good portion of anything I purchase, which incentivizes me to get some larger pieces that can hold their own up there (and maybe require less death-defying stunts).



So I was casually browsing this week, looking for inspiration, when I came across this personality-filled space. It’s populated with all kinds of quirky objects but still feels chic thanks to its sophisticated and focused color palette. Notice how the main pieces are all the same brown and neutral earth tones to complement the calm blue and white on the walls. Texture is also a key component in getting this look—it adds dimension to the stairwell while also providing a common thread, so to speak, with the same sort of rustic and well-worn materials. Throw in a few very small pops of red and some metallic accents (like a disco ball, because why not?), and you’ve got a pretty crazypants but totally enviable stairwell.

Copy Cat Chic Giveaway | Zabada Clean

Monday, August 18, 2014

Zabada Clean

I'm so excited about this week's giveaway you guys! It's brought to you by Zabada Clean. They're a exciting non-toxic, eco-friendly cleaning system newly released in the US. What's sets them apart? With their specialized fiber cleaning cloths and products you won't need actual cleaners anymore. Yep, that's right. All you need is plain old water. 

And yes, to answer those questions, it really does clean. And it cleans WELL. In fact, it removes 100% of bacteria and 90% of harmful chemicals. It's pretty mind blowing when you think about it. Zabada Clean isn't the cheapest cleaning system out there though. You just need to think of it as a bit of an investment up front. When you factor in how much you spend on cleaners...and in my case, green cleaners like these...


Well, the initial investment with Zabada Clean pays off in no time. And the their cleaning products last 2 to 3 years. Imagine not having to buy anything for three years? Sure makes me happy :)

Zabada Clean sent me a Kitchen Glove, Kitchen Marvel, Kitchen Cleaner, Floor Fiber and Floor Duster to try out. With an 8 mth old learning how to feed himself, these couldn't have come at a better time. 

I use the kitchen glove and marvel daily to clean Conrad's high chair as well as the dining table. That thing can get grimy in no time. I've always hated using standard cleaners on it because of the chance of any residue getting into his food. Now? No worries whatsoever. The glove comes with two sides, one is good for getting caked-on grime and the other is softer and cuts through grease.


 After using the kitchen glove, I buff and dry everything up with the Kitchen Marvel. This is one heavy duty microfiber cloth, much better than any other microfiber I've used in the past.


The floor cleaner is key for cleaning up the kitchen floor and under the dining room table. You guys know how it is with babies and food ;) I was going through floor cleaner like there was no tomorrow. Now I just wet this bad boy up with water and we're good to go.


Here's the fun part! The giveaway. One lucky winner will win the same package I have:

Kitchen Glove
Kitchen Marvel
Floor Cleaner
Floor Fiber
Floor Duster
Laundry Bag
