DIY: Embroidered YUM


I found this YUM sign at Target and it hung unadorned for quite some time until I felt it needed some capricious love.

The Makings Of…


Happy Friday! A few of my favorite pieces. A great way to break up wall-to-wall carpet common in rentals is to lay a cow hide over the carpet to accent the area around the sofa.

Intermediate Stage: The Living Room

This new sisal rug from Crate & Barrel has completely transformed our living room, bringing in light and really making the room feel alive.

Living Vicariously

Not only are there so many amazing products out there, but there are so many amazing styles it often makes it hard to bring everything you like into one home.

Faux Pretty
