I would love to introduce four new watercolor wall art prints that we are launching this week. I worked on these compositions back in February and I am thrilled to finally be showcasing them here today. While their colorful and abstract compositions are fun, they are also somewhat mesmerizing. In order to make this introduction as much fun as possible, we are offering a 20% discount on any print in the shop with coupon code: ILOVEWATERCOLOR. After all, who doesn’t love a good watercolor print, right?
First off is the “Blue Lagoon” Art Print. We are loving the moody and soothing colors from this art print. This calming composition lends itself to a variety of styles and decor.
Our latest DIY piece for Project Nursery is a cute modern-looking paper mobile. We’ve put together a very easy tutorial to create this fun little project. Making a custom mobile is a great way to add a personal touch to the baby’s nursery. Nursery mobiles can also make a unique and personal gift for the new mama. Oh, and did I mention that this project is super budget-friendly? So visit Project Nursery here to download the paper pattern templates and see the full step-by-step instructions.
This week I am sharing with you four tropical desktop wallpapers because it is time for your desktop to get some Spring vibes. And I promise you that these Spring-looking wallpapers are allergy-free. No itchy eyes or constant sneezing. So start downloading one of the files below and start getting Trendy with one of our wallpapers today. Do you have a favorite?
When it comes to decorating my own house, I believe that less is always more. A neutral color palette, clean lines mixed with a few rustic elements, a touch of wood and something unique are things that are always in my décor brain. A couple of weeks ago, I was on the hunt for new dining chairs. I wanted dining chairs that were kid-friendly, but also beautiful and unique. The dining room was only missing that last piece of the puzzle to be completed.
Once I started browsing online, I was amazed at all the options I found (read through here to see the top four picks). After a couple of indecisive days, I finally opted for the white Sidera chair from CB2. This chair has the most beautiful woven crosshatch pattern on slim tapered solid ash wooden legs. It is just perfect for the room. The white molded plastic against the gray concrete top makes the space feel balanced. I really love the overall look. Sometimes a work of art steals the show. Sometimes a wallpapered wall makes a statement. But here, these chairs are certainly the eye candy in the room. Every time I walk into the room, I can hear the chairs saying “Ha, made you look!”
Between my sister’s family room, my nephew’s bedroom, a landscape redesign, and a powder room remodel, I feel like I have enough design projects for the year. It sure feels overwhelming, but the excitement is here. First up is the powder room remodel. Rather than keeping everything in my head, this time around I actually put a design plan together and I am crushing over it. The space we are working with is super tiny. Right now this bathroom has white walls, a white and very traditional pedestal sink, a silver mirror, and a white shelf. It is super plain and super dated. It sure does need some love.
So I want to bring in some texture and warmth while keeping it clutter free. The idea is to add a small vanity for some much-needed storage. Since my kids use this bathroom to brush their teeth and hair in the morning before school, I need something more functional to keep these items than two little boxes propped on the shelf. I also want to add some visual interest by bringing in a black and white wallpaper to the room. In order to add drama, I want to install this surrealist-shaped mirror and a brass pendant lighting. For extra storage, a concrete-looking shelf and brass-colored accessories are a must. Finally, I also want to add Ipe boards to the ceiling to make the space cozier and to tie the room in with other areas of the house that currently feature Ipe boards. I am really liking how the design board is looking and can’t wait to get started. If I manage to squeeze in there and get some pictures of the room when done, I promise to share them here.

The other day I fell in love again. Remember when I was crushing over this sexy light bulb here? This time around a custom pillow was the one to blame. As I was brainstorming about another DIY project for Project Nursery, I decided to create a custom pillow. Since I didn’t want to have to sew it, I went ahead and bought an affordable cushion cover. I thought about dying it, but for some reason, that wasn’t really inspiring me. So then, I decided to try a more graphic and geometric look. That’s when my heart smirked at me. To see how I painted this lovely custom pillow, visit Project Nursery here. There you will read the step-by-step instructions, see the other cute pattern I created, and get inspired by a gorgeous baby boy nursery.
Spring this year came a little sooner than usual. Then it kind of waved us goodbye again and the temperature dropped. But now, it is officially Spring and that gets us thinking about outside dining, cookouts, and afternoons by the pool. I have been wanting to hand dye a couple of home items for quite some time. From placemats, to throw quilts or pillow cases. So, the other day I wore my plastic blue gloves and finally did it. Making hand dyed indigo napkins is a fun way to add more pattern and color to the table setting making the next mealtime a little extra special.
1- Napkins (you can order the same ones I used here, or use what you have in your home)
2- Tie dye kit (I recommend this one here because it comes with the dye as well as a couple of tools, like the rubber bands, gloves, popsicle sticks and square wooden pieces)
4- Large bucket
