When I Slept In a Tree House

fox house nashville 5

Last week I had the opportunity for some one-on-one, mother/daughter time with Kaleigh. She had to make a work trip to Gatlinburg, TN and asked if I’d join her. Our plan was to drive to Nashville from OKC, spend the night and then on in to Gatlinburg the next day.

While attempting to find a last minute hotel, Kaleigh did a quick search on airbnb to find somewhere cute to stay.

She found a treehouse.  Continue reading

2 Decorating Challenges and Solutions

Antique Walking Canes

COLLECTIONS
Are you a collector?
Do you love the pastime of looking for that elusive item to add to your collection(s)? Collections you can display and enjoy?

While I’ve never been bit by the collecting bug I do enjoy using a client’s collections when decorating their homes. Sometimes those collections present a challenge.
Just how do we incorporate these items into the decor?

Most recently the challenge involved a collection of vintage walking canes.  Continue reading

Red & Aqua Girl's Bedroom

When Whimsy Meets Glam To Create a Stunning Bedroom

Red & Aqua Girl's Bedroom

Do you remember these pillows from this post?

Did you see these cuties and wonder just what the rest of the room looked like?

I’m not always fortunate enough to photograph an entire room after a project is finished. But in this case Jenni graciously invited me back into her home so I could take pictures of her daughter’s beautiful bedroom! Just for you!

No-Sew Poof CoverUp

Tuffet and Mr Darcy Quote Pillow

Aren’t poofs just the cutest things?

Several years ago a friend gave us an adorable pink, multi-patchworked poof which had long ago lost it’s luster. I had grand schemes in mind for re-covering it with awe inspiring sewing skills, the cutest of fabrics and trims like you’ve never seen before.

What I got was a no-sew, duvet-cover-turned-poof-cover with it’s own “flower top” detail.  Continue reading

Sheer Curtain Panels with Ribbon Ties

$7 Ribbon Tied Sheer Curtains for the Guest Bedroom

Girls Bedroom

The fact that this so-called “guest bedroom” looks more like a girl’s bedroom is, believe me, strikingly evident every time I walk in this room.

Given the fact that I’m trying to use only the things I already have on hand combined with the fact that 3 of my 4 kids are girls it’s sort of unavoidable that this room is girly.

Several of the fabric options I considered for this window included some old pink silk curtains, a gray check duvet cover that I toyed with making into curtains and several sheer options. The fabric I used was purchased at iKea a few years ago for $.99/yd as possible wedding decor but became curtains instead!

Progress In My Quest For A Guest Bedroom

Twin Beds

I’ve never had a guest bedroom. Well…technically I suppose I did when I first got married and way back when I only had one child but it’s been a LONG time.

Kaleigh moved out a year ago, and me being so on-the-ball about getting things done around here, we’re now working on turning the spare bedroom into a cute guest bedroom.

I toyed with the idea of moving my work room up here. Or turning it into a hangout space for the two kiddos still at home. But honestly this room still functions best for us as a bedroom so a bedroom it will stay.

Bedroom Makeover

My Bedroom Makeovers and Why They’re Nothing Like a DIY Show

Bedroom MakeoverHGTV teases you with the idea that you can makeover a room in a day or 2. Some even take 3 or 4 days. I don’t buy it. Not truly.

In my world, makeovers take weeks. In the case of my own personal house? Months.

And if you count the fact that I came to hate this shade of green shortly after we built our house…YEARS!!!
