Study Redesign // The Reveal!

One month ago I shared the plans for my study redesign, which is just a small portion of my living room that has a desk and bookshelves, and is the passthrough to the sliding doors that go out back. I wanted to make the space more intentional by adding a comfy chair for reading and reworking the bookcases. If you missed that post you can catch up HERE. And today is the day to share the reveal!

Four Tips For Choosing A Color Palette

Are you on Team Neutral or Team Color? Or are you a mix of the two? Don’t worry, you’re totally allowed to be! And all kinds of colors can be combined to create a cohesive color palette. Holy cow, did you catch all of the alliteration happening right there??

As an “in-the-middleist” (if you missed it, you can read about my made up design style HERE), I bridge both sides of the spectrum, taking relatively neutral base color schemes and injecting some color from time to time. Maybe I lean more toward Team Color, but in moderation and with a tight and mostly toned down scheme.

Boho On A Budget

Last week I wrote A LOT (I’m sorry, I didn’t mean for it to be that epic) about how I keep my finances in order: from how I tackle budgets and spending freezes to savings plans and more. If you missed it (and are interested), pour yourself a big mug of something good, get comfy and check it out HERE.

I really hadn’t planned to do a series on anything finance, but when I did a little rearranging to my blog schedule this week it worked out that my topic for today was going to be about how to achieve a boho look on a budget. Next weekend it just so happens that I have another financey-related post headed your way. So unintentionally a would-be series was born. I’ll try not to go on at length in today’s post, promise!

A Design Remix for Spring

Nope, not that kind of remi-remi-remix! Haha! That was my attempt at onomatopoeia in case you couldn’t tell, lol…

If you’ve been an HGTV fan for a couple of decades you may remember a little show called Design Remix. I loved this show, and I love the concept: updating your home by reusing things you already have in a new way to make a space look completely different, awake and rejuvenated!

Project Plans // Study Redesign

Do you remember wayyy back in October when I shared my living room and study tour, and I said that I’d be sharing plans for the redesign of my study “very soon?” Well, now it’s almost four months later and here we are! That’s soon, right? Soon-ish? Soon enough? Haha.. anywho!

When I first was contemplating my living room design, before I even made settlement and moved in, I knew I wanted bookcases along the back wall under the soffit. And I liked the idea of a desk behind the couch. These two elements created a separate space I’ve been calling my study, thought I seldom actually use the space for more than a pass through to the back deck. I usually grab my laptop and hunker down on the couch. But I’d like to use the space more thoughtfully and I have some ideas for how I’d like to do that.

Now, on to the main Bathroom. Enjoy!

3 Ways To Bring The Boho—Through Layering!

Are you wanting to bring some boho flair into your home but aren’t sure how to do it? I love to incorporate touches here and there in an effort to bridge the gap between minimalism and maximalism, and blend my just right happy medium of “in-the-middleism” that I talked about HERE on Wednesday.

One of my favorite ways to incorporate the boho trend is by layering items I already have to give my space an easy, carefree, relaxed, lived-in look. Today we’ll look at three ways to let your boho side shine by layering.
