Color of the Week: Peach Crayon

Peaches and cream… and orange, and blue, and… Refreshing and light, Glidden Peach Crayon is here to cool us down. Very versatile, the color’s an ideal backdrop to accessorize with bold pops of orange or blue. It’s just as easily complemented with muted tones for a soothing and subtle entryway. We think it’s pretty peachy.


House to Home: Updating the Old Place. 

Since it’s been so cold and snowing (which is crazy for Atlanta- as I’m sure you’ve heard) I have been stuck in my house much more than usual. This has lead to me becoming one of those crazy people who watches HGTV and is constantly on furniture websites and DIY blogs. My husband and I have never really had a nice house like this before, nor have we been able to furnish by picking out our own pieces. We’ve been moving the same hand-me-downs into weird little rentals for years. So when we moved into my old childhood home, I knew I wanted to really make it look different from how it did when I was a kid, and I wanted to really make it our place. Here are a few of the somewhat finished areas of the downstairs that we just finished. (If you’ve ever re-done your house, you know it’s kind of never fully finished!) I’m bummed I did not take “before” pictures, as it looked completely different! 

My husband and I really wanted a homey, grown-up feel but with lots of whimsy and fun (we’re kind of hippies at heart, if you can’t tell.) We had inherited so much stuff that was black, white, and red- which was great for a few years, but we really wanted to add a lot of color into our super-beige and neutral house. 

Where I got some pieces:

Living Room: Rug, coffee table and map art are all from The couches are super comfy, and from Rooms-To-Go scracth & dent. The new built-in bookshelves and the funky accent chair are from Ikea. Pillows, blanket, curtains, and red table all on sale at Target. The rest is from Homegoods, thrifted, and random finds. 

Eat-in kitchen: My husband made our farmhouse table, and I stained and painted it. A Pinterest success! The chairs are Ikea, and the baker’s rack is Target. 

Foyer: The art was a wedding gift, and the sticks are my wedding centerpieces repurposed! The mirror is from Pier One, and the red cabinet is Target as well. 

If you have any questions or comments feel free to message me or comment below! I will be doing more DIY projects and renovations in the coming months. If you want to keep up, I post a lot of my projects on Instagram! You can also stay up to date on Facebook and see what ideas I’ve got coming up in my Pinterest boards. :)


Color of the Week: Sassafras Tea

Not just any brown, Home Decorators Collection in Sassafras Tea is a bohemian hue that is as snappy as its name. Whether used on an accent wall or painted throughout a room, the warm rich tones ground bold and pastel colors, which can be freely incorporated throughout. We love the color paired with powder blues or warm yellows. Now that’s sassy.

Who says wallpaper must be a floor-to-ceiling installation? Instead, pair beautifully paneled walls with lengths of wallpaper that wrap onto the ceiling. Here, a bold gray and white pattern of interlocking shapes has the effect of art in this eclectic entryway.
