Happy 2017! I am so excited for new beginnings and many new projects that I hope this year will bring us. Last year we worked on some great projects, like the room for seven, the rustic chandelier, and one of my favorites, my office makeover.
We started the office remodel sometime in the summer. We wanted to make the room brighter, more feminine, more welcoming, and more Trendy. Get it? Prior to the makeover, the space did what it was supposed to do but didn’t feel very inspiring. It had a great working area for three computers and lots of storage space. With two big windows, the lighting was pretty good, but the dark-colored walls felt a little sad. I also wanted to transform this office into a shared space, creating room for a play area for the kiddos.
So for this office makeover to work, we focused on the following items:
We are wishing you and your family a very merry Christmas. Here is hoping 2017 will be a terrific year for all. Xo, Patchi

I am happy to say that Casa Cancado is Holiday ready! Getting our home ready for the holidays is a very special time for me. I love to make the house feel festive, and I also love that there are so many ways of going about it. What are some of your DOs and DON’Ts when decorating for the Holidays? How is your home for the holidays?
Here are a few of my MUST haves and must NOT haves when decorating for Christmas time.
When decorating the Christmas tree, I feel that most ornaments MUST color coordinate. Also, the Christmas tree must NOT be too lean. I like the tree to be big and fat with lots of lights.
Today we are showing how-to-style an entryway for the holidays in three different ways. We’ve put together a festive look, an elegant and modern look, and finally, a simple, yet gorgeous winter look.
1:: Bright and Festive, but not too festive
First, we wanted to create a holiday look that was not very traditional. So for this look, we chose our “Ink and Charcoal” print to add a subtle color to the room. In addition, we’ve bundled a couple of decorative Christmas trees together. Grouping similar items together is the best way to make them stand out. For the greenery, we added a plant from around the house instead of a traditional Christmas greenery.
We’ve made a list. We’ve checked it twice. We modified it, but then finally decided it was nice. Now that it is all done, it is time to think about unique gift wrapping paper. So, gather your supplies and let’s have an elf gift wrapping party, shall we? All you need is a Kraft paper roll, black paint, and white strings.
If you are feeling a little crafty and want to add a personal touch to your Christmas gifts this season, visit Project Nursery here to see all the details about this DIY gift wrapping project we did. We promise you that it is super easy to make this custom and unique gift wrapping paper. These gorgeous packages will feel right at home under your Christmas Tree.

Oh, the task was daunting. It was nearly impossible. How-to-design a shared bedroom for seven kids. As challenging as this may sound, we had to make it work. The grandparents wanted to transform a spare bedroom into a sleepover delight for their seven grandchildren. The kids’ age ranged from three-years-old to eleven-years-old, and we were dealing with boys and girls. We used neutral décor, personal touches, and maximized its functionality in order to design a room for seven kids.
Choose the right furniture
Forget about the bunk beds. To avoid making this space look super crowded with heavy and dark bunk beds, we chose versatile white beds with trundles. Their clean lines complement any style, while the beds’ compact proportions make it easier to arrange them in the space. The beds worked really well placed against each other as well as against the wall. And the rollout bottom trundles allow lots of room for a play area when they are not in use.
Pick timeless décor
We worked with lots of different patterns and textures to create a gender-neutral bedroom. Mixing stripes in bold colors with geometric patterns give this room an eclectic and fun look. We’ve placed richly-hued pillows in different sizes and shapes for an added detail. Large and graphic fruit prints along with geometric boomerang wall decals bring a lot of color and interest to the walls. Finally, two sculptural lamps make a statement around the beds.
Create storage space
We placed some strong and sturdy storage bins under one of the beds to store daily items. We also added a graphic printed basket for additional storage while four hooks can keep coats and bags organized. The best of all storage areas in this shared bedroom is the bold-colored green locker. This locker is such a statement piece in this room. The kids love the locker, it really sets the tone for this sleepover room.
Make it personal
In order to make this room feel personal, we created a gallery-wall with all seven kids’ pictures. All seven photographs were framed in a modern white frame. The simplicity of this frame made it a breeze to create a gallery-wall.
Oh, the Holidays are approaching quickly. Temperatures have dropped and boot season has officially started around here. Seems like we are getting in the mood for hot chocolate, soups, and holiday decorations. While I don’t enjoy cold weather too much, I do love this time of the year. So let’s start it off by setting a gorgeous, and yet kid-friendly Thanksgiving table, shall we?
For this beautiful table set-up, we used a DIY Kraft paper runner adorned with washi tape and a Thanksgiving printable. Do you want to see more? Head on to Project Nursery here to see more photos and read about all the details.
