Sometimes I need a little bit of inspiration to come up with the perfect color scheme for a party (or even redecorating my room!) and, luckily, I recently discovered The Perfect Palette.

Pumpkin decorating is one of the best (if not messiest) parts of Halloween. But if scraping out soggy seeds, or wielding a carving knife isn’t your forte, try this trick for endless pumpkin decorating fun. Simply paint your pumpkin with chalkboard spray paint, and then draw on your spooky faces. Not quite the look you were going for? Get more […]
Each year, as temperatures drop and leaves begin to change, the Halloween decorations in my neighborhood start to go up. I can’t tell you how many yards of fake spider web (some with disturbingly large and realistic looking fake spiders) have gone up in the blocks surrounding my apartment. Personally, I’m a bit of a Halloween curmudgeon, so these festive […]
I don’t know about you, but I think lamps and reading chairs are two of the hardest things to buy for your home. But once you’ve found the perfect lamp (I’m partial to this Kathryn Lamp from Crate & Barrel, but luckily I found a less expensive version of it.), you can make small changes to it to keep it feeling […]
Comfortable, stylish, fresh yet familiar and “at home” is what most of us try to achieve as we’re decorating our homes.

I’m a big fan of having color in the kitchen since all of our appliances are white, and we have fairly neutral colored counters and cabinets. I love these bright paint chip inspired placemats from Etsy seller avrilloreti. They come in a set of eight for $120, or you can buy sets of four in one color palette for $60. […]
I came across these awesome blueprints of different dog breeds awhile ago, but was incredibly happy to find that they now carry a poodle version (those are the dogs my family had growing up). I keep collecting ideas for art for an eventual gallery wall, and I think this would fit right in. Even though they don’t look exactly like […]
