Adding a Pop of Color with Wall Pops Wall Art

  As summer winds down, I’ve been slowly organizing and making small changes around the house. On a rainy day or a moment I find myself with an extra burst of energy, I organize a closet, or go through a room. One project I’ve been working on is my girl’s shared bedroom. When it comes to a room for both a 5 and 11 year old, I wanted to be

DIY Wall Shelving For A Small Playroom

I live in a 2 1/2 bedroom railroad apartment here in the Bronx. The half room is attached to my bedroom, and when we first moved in, I imagined it to be my dream walk in closet.

Spring Baptism Celebration Using Decor From Oriental Trading

The library itself is beautiful, so I chose very neutral

We’ve had the same black iron headboard for years, and have usually just changed up the comforter each season. But when I decided we needed a

Deck the Halls with Big Lots!

After attending an event last month showcasing their Holiday 2016 collection, I was excited to choose some of my favorites. From ornaments to bedding, I chose some fun pieces to help winterize my apartment. The

Checking Out BloomsyBox: A Flower Subscription Service

Consideration brought to you by BloomsyBox   The other day to try to make me feel better, the hubby walked in with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and some pumpkin spiced coffee creamer- I was feeling the love.

Ikea Minimalism Meets Brazil: The New TILLFÄLLE Collection
