Transitioning Your Throw Pillows for Fall

As a blogger, it seems like it's the norm to decorate one season early in order to have posts ready for the coming season. Well, I managed to be a week early, so I consider it an accomplishment! This past weekend, I made some new throw pillows to use in our living room for the coming fall months. I'm dreading the colder months {I'm such a summer girl} but I do love the change of seasons and the ... read more

Wednesday Watch List

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 1 - I've seen this desk makeover everywhere this past week, and for some random {or not so random} reason, I want to paint something this shade of mint green. It is so perfect with the gold hardware. Definitely against my normal styles, but I just can't get this out of my head! My creative wheels are spinning as to how I can add this color somewhere in our home. Like, wouldn't ... read more

Blog Tour

Today I'm participating in a Tour Through the Blog World. You've probably seen these posts lately, but essentially, a blogger nominates you,  you answer some questions and then you tag three more bloggers. Kinda like a pyramid scheme, but for bloggers ;) This post is definitely a little more personal and wordy than the pretty images and inspiring projects you may be used to. So, today you get to ... read more

Salt Lake Parade of Homes: Home #6

On Tuesday, I shared my favorite home from the 2014 Salt Lake Parade of Homes. Today I'm sharing my second favorite: Wimbledon (Home #6).  This house, although spectacular, bordered on ridiculous (18,688 square feet) but it was also tastefully done and actually felt like a home. More details: Builder: Steven Dailey Construction Architect: Landforms Design Landscape: Alder ... read more

Salt Lake Parade of Homes: Home #1

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you saw that I went to the Salt Lake Parade of Homes while we were in Utah last week. Growing up in Utah, my love of houses began at a very early age, and that love only continued to grow each year. I was that kid in junior high that took my camera to the Parade of Homes and photographed every home and space I loved so that I could look back on them at ... read more
