No paste. No glue. No mess. We promise! The thing I love most about Trendy Peas' wallpaper is how easy it is to apply it to the walls. So a couple of weeks ago we shot a fun wallpaper installation video to show you how the installation process works. Because our wallpaper is printed on a self-adhesive material, the installation is quite simple. Simply peel, stick, and enjoy. Watch the video below and see how we did it.

This Summer I will be working on two very special bedroom designs. These two rooms haven't been touched for almost 10 years. So I am really looking forward to transforming these outdated spaces into functional and inviting bedrooms for my "clients". The first room design is for my 10-year-old nephew, who I am calling #clientdrummer. I wrote about his bedroom makeover last year, and you can see his design board here. The second bedroom design is for #clientniece. My niece is twelve, she loves to perform, loves to sing and likes to wear comfortable bohemian-inspired clothes. So I decided to design a room with some beautiful bohemian elements and mix them with a touch of mid-century style. I want to add lots of geometric patterns and plenty of gold details throughout the room. I also want to mix leather with wool, and wood with metal. The more textures the better. Here is a couple of elements of this gorgeous bohemian design board. Will #clientniece approve? After a lot of furniture searching, I found the butterfly chair you see above from Urban Outfitters. Sometimes you need a piece of furniture in the room that helps bring the entire room together. And in this case, this gorgeous butterfly chair with golden legs is just what will do the trick.

Let's keep things simple for the guests, shall we? I've finished this sweet design board a couple of weeks ago and a few of the items have been installed already. When I started this design board for the guest bedroom makeover, I had a minimalist approach in my mind. So, I chose the hive wallpaper as my main inspiration. This wallpaper design adds a subtle pattern to the wall without making the room look too busy. Then, to jazz things up a bit, gold sconces were in order. After a lot of searching and browsing, I decided the new guest bedroom needed the super sexy mid-century sconces pictured below. The black and white horse wall art photography will be placed above the bed as the focal point. I will be adding some more color with books and other decorative items. But the foundation is done and I am loving it.

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.

We are playing the musical chair game over here. When I started my search for new dining chairs for my dining room, I quickly realized that my eyes were after mid-century dining chairs. Why? Well, I don't quite know. Perhaps it's because I think that most mid-century looking furniture are just absolutely gorgeous. So, after browsing online while obsessing about mid-century design, I picked my top four mid-century dining chairs.
Chair #1The first option is the Holt Mid Century Bent Wood Accent Chair. I love the look of this chair and its colors. The way the legs are attached to the base seem very sturdy, however, the light-colored fabric scares me a little. Because I have three kids, whenever I am shopping for a fabric, I always choose leather.
Chair #2Option number 2 is the Lena Mid-Century Dining Chair. The simplicity of this chair is what I like about it. Sometimes, you need neutral pieces in order for an item to stand out. Since our concrete dining table makes the room feel a little "heavy", I believe that simple wooden chairs might be just what we need for the space.
Chair #3Option number 3 is the Porthos Home Olivia Dining Chair. This chair has the perfect combination of leather and wood. It's as if the most delicious ingredients have been carefully put together to create the perfect mixed drink. What a beauty!
Chair #4The final option is the Sidera chair in white. This chair has the perfect legs and the most beautiful base pattern. This chair is also available in black, but since I am trying to make the room feel softer, I think the white tone would do the trick. I do believe I have a favorite option. What do you think? Could you use any of these chairs in your dining room? PS: Let's get social. Follow us here and say hi!

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 festiveFirst, 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.

I have a fun and exciting project in my hands. I just started to brainstorm about a makeover for my nephew's bedroom. This room has a great size and a huge window, however, somehow this room suffer from poor lighting syndrome. How did that happen? Perhaps the oversized bunk bed is the one to blame. After all, this bunk bed is in fact, kind of large, dark, and too heavy for the bedroom. Or maybe, just maybe, the dated green walls are making this room look darker than it really is. Besides the outdated issues we have to take care of, I also need to address the problem of functionality. Lucas is 10-years-old and needs a desk area, better storage, and great lighting for book reading in bed. Another problem is that most of the décor items in his room don't relate to him anymore. So, to kick off this project, I created the mood board below focusing on timeless items. For this first design board, I am keeping things more on the monochromatic side. But once we have all the wall art, trophies, photos, and books, his room will be filled with pops of color. When creating a space for a child, I like to create an excellent base and ideal workflow for the room. The furniture, desk, shelves, lighting should be timeless items that will work for the child now as well as in 5 years. There is no need to get a full bedroom makeover in the near future. When that time comes, I hope to be able to change just decorative items that will relate to a 15-year-old instead of a 10-year-old. I do believe this little project will take some time to tackle it. But I will keep updating its progress here on the blog.

Do you have any plants around your house? Do you know how to care for such plants? Today I am sharing with you the best houseplant to have in your house. I love to bring some greenery inside the house to spruce up the décor. But caring for a houseplant is not always easy. I have tried a few houseplants over the years, and I must say that the easiest one to care for is the gorgeous Mother-in-Law's Tongue. These sword-shaped plants are one of the best houseplants for beginners. They require very little water. In fact, the biggest danger is overwatering them. The Mother-in-Law's Tongue is excellent in a grouping and will provide striking displays in any room.
Caring for Mother-in-Law's TongueWater: Let the soil dry between waterings. I water my plant only once-a-week. And during the winter, that can be reduced to once-a-month, or whenever the soil is dry to the touch.
LightThey prefer bright light. So place your houseplant in a room that gets some sun or near a widow.
TemperatureThey will suffer if exposed to temperatures below 50ºF. So keep them inside throughout the whole year.
FertilizerWhen I remember, I add some fertilizer during the Spring. The beautiful Mother-in-Law's Tongue planter is now part of our family. They have been on the same corner for 3 years now, and they feel right at home. PS: to see more design tips follow us on IG.
