Earlier this year we replaced our original laminate countertops with leathered granite (blog post on that here!) And now we are making plans to install a backsplash. Tile is the standard material for backsplash, and I included a few tile backsplash ideas in this roundup. But have you ever thought of using wallpaper? Brass? Wood planks? a Sharpie Marker?!Read More
Two weeks ago I shared our daughter's bedroom makeover and today I am back to share her 10 year old brother's room! Our son has a lot of interests: everything from dinosaurs to drawing to pirate ships. It was a lot of fun to include his interests in his bedroom while also making the room more grown up.
I partnered with Hunter Fan Company and Sherwin-Williams on this makeover project. The Cranbrook ceiling fan design in black with light blue-gray Misty SW 6232 by Sherwin-Williams give his bedroom personality and style—perfect for a preteen space!Read More
I'm thrilled to share our daughter's room makeover with you this morning! She is 8, almost 9 and is at the beginning of the tween/preteen years. I partnered with Hunter Fan Company and Sherwin-Williams on the project because I am always beyond impressed with the quality of their products!
Our daughter has a fun and artistic personality and I didn't want to limit that with neutral colors. So together we picked a light blue-grey paint called Misty SW 6232 by Sherwin-Williams. And used Hunter Fan's Cranbrook design in mint overhead.Read More
When I moved to the Charlotte, NC area 4 years ago I heard about the High Point Market but was clueless about it. So I started doing my research! The High Point Market is a furniture trade show (the largest in the world!) hosted in High Point, NC every 6 months with over 2000 exhibitors. It is open to people in the industry only. The majority of the exhibitors I visited were wholesalers--shops & boutiques buy from them to sell in their store. I attended the past two times with a press pass.
Scroll down for 4 trends I spotted at the April 2018 High Point Market. This isn't a conclusive list! You will find every style at the Market. I'm sharing favorite things that caught my eye as a designer who leans toward modern lines with rustic accents. And bonus if a piece has some quirkiness!Read More
Blue paint is tricky. It can transition to a mint-tone so quickly or show too nursery-ish. We are working on our 8 & 10 year old's bedrooms and both kids said they are interested in the color blue for their walls. So I started to research our options! I used my Sherwin-Williams kit to look at our color choices, got great suggestions from friends on Instagram, and researched online to see how the colors look in rooms.
Finding a good blue gray paint is important to me. I want it to show neutral AND give our kids the color they want. Scroll down for my top 5 blue grey paint colors!Read More
