Styling a modern glam sofa

Posted on

Happy Friday everyone! Today I’m joining up with some of our blog friends to share our favorite sofas and tips for making them look beautiful. I’ve had my eye on a green velvet sofa for years and I finally pulled the trigger not once but twice on this green velvet beauty from Article that I used in last fall’s One Room Challenge. There are so many good affordable options when it comes to green sofas but finally the lines, the price and the return policy won me over on the Sven. I love everything about this sofa and today I’m going to share my steps for styling a modern glam sofa! My goal in this room makeover was to create a sleek, modern and elegant room that could still take the abuse of three messy kids and a big shaggy dog. To me, the most standout part of this room was the …

A pantry makeover

Posted on

It’s January which usually means to me it’s time for an organizing project and this time I’m taking on a pantry makeover! This past fall Erin and I were invited to participate in the One Room Challenge. We took on my family room, breakfast nook and kitchen. This is the kitchen after all that hard work. I’ve loved sharing our new space with friends and family and even hosting a few get togethers over the past couple months. But what didn’t get a makeover and what’s been my semi-hidden secret was my pantry. Outside it was pretty as a picture. Inside it was a total mess that made me cringe whenever I opened those cabinet doors and even more so when friends saw it – it was like getting caught with my holey undies on. Lucky for me Brenna of Domestic Charm invited me to join in an organizational blog hop …

Dinner and a movie at home

Posted on

Once upon a time in a land far, far away my prince charming and I loved getting out for a romantic dinner followed by a night at the movies. It’s the quintessential date night and that’s exactly what we did on our first date. Ok maybe the dinner part didn’t quite work out that night (it’s a long story!) so instead we settled for diet cokes at McDonald’s. Not exactly the most romantic of first dates but we’ve been together a LONG time since then so something went right that night! These days the idea of getting out for dinner and a movie is mere fantasy. I honestly have no idea the last time we did both. Although I’d be in favor of occasional outings Mr. Man can’t quite stomach the idea of paying a babysitter to watch the kids while we sit, not talking, in a dark theater. I guess I can …

2017 design resolutions {Tricia}

Posted on

  Happy New Year’s to all – hope you all enjoyed your holidays! “What?!?” you say  “the holidays are like so last year!” I know, I know, I’m late to the game – blame it on the kids. Our school district likes to torture parents by giving the kids an extra long winter break. Our kids only went back to school yesterday! I couldn’t move on to embracing the fresh start of 2017 while trying to keep 3 kids entertained and trying to keep the clutter even partially contained so I’m just now checking in with my 2017 design resolutions! Erin & I took a break from the blog to enjoy all that downtime with our families. Mr. Man & I went for low key this year: going nowhere & spending lots of time together and with the kids, a little time on the slopes, a few fun parties with friends. many, many movies, …
