I know, I know, I promised an office update awhiiiiiile ago on Instagram. I finally organized it a bit and took pictures. I’m pretty excited about the progress! It’s calm and bright and helps me tune out the chaos of everyday life. I really like a clean, uncluttered and light space to work in.[Read more…] about My Office Update with Walmart
You guys haven’t seen my master bedroom for awhile and it’s because not much has changed in here since we’ve moved in. It just hasn’t been much of a priority lately, but I felt like it really needed a little bit of love to freshen it up and make it less neglected looking.[Read more…] about Master Bedroom Update with Walmart
There’s a new trend in town! Have you been noticing hints of art deco inspired home decor lately? I love how cyclical design trends are, but have you noticed that when something come back “in”, it’s never exactly the same. It’s always the updated, modern, new and improved version of itself. In this case, I love how I’m seeing art deco brought up-to-date with strong jewel-tones and simplified lines and details. And this new version is so easily implemented into any space which makes it the perfect way to update your space! Loving this cute corner in my living room, that I updated with some deco-inspired details from World Market.
And here are some other art deco picks from World Market that I think you’ll enjoy!

This school year really passed by fast this year. I’m still reeling, but really looking forward to lazy days and sunshine! For Arden and Conrad, the countdown is on. We only have one more week left!
I always like to celebrate with the kids by taking them to ice cream on the last day of school. I thought it would be fun to host an ice cream (and other sweets) social with school friends at our house this year.[Read more…] about School’s Out, Let’s Celebrate!

That’s right…I said it. You’ve seen it though, right? Beige is back. AND it’s better than ever. Warm neutrals have been all over the place lately and I’m rolling out the welcome wagon. I’ve always loved color tones, but you really need some warmer hues to balance them out. Ivory has always been a regular, but the new updated tones of beige are really making a huge comeback!
You might all remember peeking at what the living room looked like right after we moved in, and a little bit later on, and it worked for the moment. It was all furniture from the old house, and pieces I loved, but it didn’t really work for our new, more petite, living room. For one thing you opened the front door and would knock right into either the sofa arm or you’d get stuck on the rug (which was a teensy bit too big). It took me a few months of deliberation and seeing how we use the space, or need to use the space. And not to mention, lots of different room plans! But I finally came up with a design that both the Mr and I agreed on and one that would work well for us as a family.
Ever since coming home from our trip to Waikiki, I’ve been daydreaming about our our hotel room at the Modern Honolulu. I decided it was time for a little master bedroom update of our own. As you saw from the No Makeup Home Tour, our cal king bed takes up pretty much our whole bedroom! It’s definitely a smaller room than our last master, that’s for sure. I think our new bedroom calls for a queen sized bed – That way we can fit TWO nightstands instead of just one 😉
We have the cutest little reading nook in our house on the second floor landing. After putting the kids down at night, I like to lay there and read a bit while I wait for them to settle down for the night. It’s such a great spot and has a nice view of the surrounding hills. It’s also a great little perch for watching the sun set. I’m not the only one who loves to sit there though, Arden loves curling up there with a good book too. In fact I often find open books propped just so…in fact the book in these pictures was left there by her and I figured I’d leave it for the photos!
Most of you have heard of the Konmari method and the every minimalist’s bible: The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Ever since reading the book a few years ago, we regularly “konmari” everything in the house. It’s such a simple and easy way to keep clutter to a minimum.
When we moved, I thought I would use the konmari method to help make the whole moving process easier, not only before moving but during the move as well!
