Frame Wall

I decided the wall above our couch needed a little sprucing up so I finally put together a little frame wall. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out! 
(Don't mind the poor lighting, we live in a basement so its hard to get good pictures down here).

The "home sweet home" print was purchased on Etsy and I picked up the SLC Temple print (made by Ashmae) at the Bijou Market. I'd had my eye on that for quite some time so I was excited to finally get it!

I made the canvas art and this M was found in the dollar bin at Michaels months ago.

"Making the Most of the Mantel"

Someday when we own a home of our own something on my "must have" list is a fireplace with a fabulous mantel. The possibilities are endless! This awesome article from Elle Decor has some great tips. My favorite was from Celerie Kemble:
“A mantel is a central focal point of a room and an easy place to make small changes that help keep a room from feeling stagnant,” says New York designer Celerie Kemble. “Break the symmetry and create visual interest by selecting a collection from a wardrobe of objects: two pretty planters, a pair of candlesticks, a clock, and decorative boxes. You can dress and re-dress your mantel to fit the season using different pieces from your wardrobe.”

You should definitely check out the rest of the gallery, they've got some great ideas!

Bijou Time!

It's that time of year again, the Bijou Market is here! I'll be heading down tomorrow and I can hardly wait. Hoping to find some gifts and start to get my Christmas shopping done! Here are a few of my favorite items this year:

This was on my list last year but I still haven't gotten it...maybe this time! Go check out Armelle Jewelry- so pretty!

CinnamonInk has some new prints that I have my eye on. I have one in my baby's crib area and I love it.

I'd love one of these cute ties for my little guy. Check them all out here.

I love this necklace from Turquoise Roots.

Making a Comeback

Lots of things exciting me in the design world as of late so I figured it's about time I get back on here and share them all with you.
We are finally putting together all of the finishing touches on my parent's living room / dining area. It has been quite a journey and although we're not quite there yet, it's coming along beautifully.
We went and picked up these lovlies the other day and they make me just so happy. I wish they were for my own home. :)
