An Oyster Tray For The Bathroom

I love using little trays all over the house, so when I found this fabulous Oyster tray, I thought it needed to be in the bathroom.

Just For The Fun Of It

I love to be silly sometimes and those that know me know that I am silly "A Lot".  My home can get to looking really stuffy if I don't lighten up a little every once in a while.   I was going through my scarfs the other day and finding a few that I could donate to goodwill when I came across a designer scarf that I have had for quite a while.  It is one I forgot about, but use to wear all the time.  When I saw it, I just had to play.  

Isn't this fun.  I have black/white/orange and pumpkin in my living room, so this was just meant to be to add a little fun to the dining area.

 See the orange/pumpkin accessories that I have in the living area.  Is this not the perfect colors or what?

Some of my favorite blogs that I love to follow and totally enjoy are not only chic but full of fun and whimsy too in their decorating style.  Dimples and Tangles is one I always look forward to seeing what she has been up to.  She mixes tons of colors and patterns together for such gorgeous, chic and fun spaces.

How can you not love a room with all this pattern and texture.  Fur, cowhide, leopard, plaid and it all looks amazing mixed together.

This is a different version of her sofa showcasing Shumacher's Chiang Mai Dragon fabric.  I love that she mixes the leopard with everything.  It really does become a neutral.

So "JUST FOR THE FUN OF IT" I left the scarf on the table.    It makes me smile every time I walk through this room.   I agree with Jennifer, I think any kind of animal print is definitely a neutral.

Do you decorate just for the fun of it sometimes too?

One Of A Kind

I love shopping Novica for one of a kind gifts and accessories.  There are so many things to choose from, plus you have the opportunity to connect with someone half way around the world.

When I saw this stunning pillow, it just looked like it should be in my home.  

The black and white design is so fresh and contemporary.  This is a pillow that was created by a wonderful artisan - Diego Olivero.  His designs are made out of fabric that has been loving created on a traditional pedal loom.   He describes his work in the following manner. 

"Nature and the environment, the customs and colors of our culture inspire my collections.  Our designs are a fusion of the millennial Maya culture and the sophisticated world of today."

Each gift that you receive comes beautifully gift wrapped with a little story card about the artist and a beautiful message card.  Such attention to detail is so unique and so beautiful.  Notice the fabulous little doll tied to the bow - --

 Isn't she precious.  She is 100% hand made and dressed in a traditional outfit.  The attached card explains that she is very special.  She is know as a worry doll.  Just put her under your pillow and she will take all of your worries away so you get a good nights rest.  How precious is this!!!!

I love my new pillow and I appreciate the beautiful craftsmanship and design that Diego created.

As a contributor for Novica, I was given the opportunity to select from many wonderful works done by hundreds of artists.   If you are looking for that special something for yourself, your home or a gift, I know you will find the perfect thing at Novica.

Statement necklaces are all the rage right now, and this crocheted beauty will definitely make a statement.  I think this has my name written all over it.  

If you are looking for something that is beautiful and unique, be sure to check out Novica

Pulling It All Together-Making Home Base

Today I am so thrilled to have Chelsea from Making Home Base share how she pulled her daughter's room together.  Living in Military housing hasn't stopped her from decorating her home to reflect her style.  You absolutely have to go check out her Home Tour and her Project Gallery.  This gal has more up her sleeve than most of us could even dream about.  I love it all and I love her style and spunk.

 Hi there! I'm so excited to be here today telling you about my daughter's room and how I "pulled it all together". My daughter started climbing out of her crib at just about 18 months old. We totally weren't ready to put her a toddler bed but she had other plans! Since we were ditching the crib anyway, we decided to go all out and give her room the "big girl makeover." She is 2 now and is a very sweet, yet sassy little darling. When I was brainstorming ideas I knew I had to incorporate two things well three, pink and gold, and animals! Pink and gold because it's the perfect sassy and sweet combo and animals because that's my daughter's favorite thing in the world. I knew right away that I wanted an upholstered headboard. I shopped around and couldn't justify spending a few hundred dollars on one so I decided to do an IKEA hack and create our own.

                 Decorating A Small Bedroom for A Little Girl

Another major piece to this makeover was the rugs. We live in a rental with the world's ugliest carpet. Since we painted the walls gray, the gray carpet was just way too dark so I lightened the floors up by layering these two rugs. I love the colorful gold Moroccan patterned rug softened a little bit by the white shag over it.

                 Gold Dog Silhouette Wall with Walls Need Love

Another major part of pulling this room together was this dog silhouette accent wall. I mentioned how much my daughter loves animals, well dogs are her favorite. When I saw these dog silhouettes I knew they had to be incorporated into her space! It's such a fun wall and she loves counting the doggies and pointing out the "small ones" and "big ones."

 And no kid's room is complete without a little reading area. Since space was limited we hung a couple of book shelves. This was a great way to store books as well as display some of her favorites. Also, this pouf is worth a mention. I found it at Target on clearance and it was sort of the inspiration for the color scheme of the whole room!

Decorating A Small Bedroom for A Little Girl

Details. What really pulled this room together was the small details. Things like the animal wall art, the sweet polka dots sheets, and that little brass deer. Sweet finds that we've collected since she was tiny are now on display in her space. This is my favorite space in the house, probably because it's the only room that's completely finished. We love spending time in here reading stories and playing blocks.

 Thanks so much to Marty, for having me over today! I've love for you to stop by my blog to see more of my home.  

Isn't this room absolutely perfect.  I love how she made this room reflect her daughter by adding animals to the wall, plus that pink and gold is perfect.  If you don't follow her, you need to rush over and click the follow button, you really don't want to miss a single post.
