Love Is In The Air

It's February and that means love is in the air.  Whether you're decorating a playroom, a child's bedroom, nursery, or you're decorating for a wedding or Valentine's Day, our collection of heart wall decals are ideal wall decor.  Available in 23 in stock colors and custom dimensions available.  Heart EKG Geometric Heart Geometric Heart Wall Pattern Solid Hearts

Pattern Play

Mixing patterns can be intimidating, but once you get the hang of it, it can be a fun way to get creative with your space. Our houndstooth wall decals, shown here in black, are an easy way to add design to your walls...AND they're removable making them extra perfect for renters.

Pattern can also be incorporated in small, simple ways as seen here with the herringbone cord used on this vintage Dietz Lantern turned light from Modern Artifact Decor. 

If you're new to the idea of mixing patterns, start out with 3 different patterns.  The bedroom seen here from All Modern is a perfect example and the pop of orange gives the room more interest.

Simple.  Timeless.  Patterns can be found in flooring, furniture and various pieces displayed on shelving.  I love this corner by Room&Board.

A great way to begin experimenting with patterns is through the use of throw pillows.  They're fairly inexpensive and easy to change if you don't get it right the first time, or to change with the seasons.  These Streamline throw pillows by chloeandolive.com come in a variety of sizes and color.

Pantone Color of the Year 2017 - Greenery

Since its inception in 2000, the fashion and design industry looks forward to Pantone unveiling their pick for color of the year.  Inspired by nature, this year belongs to Greenery.  Our palm tree and tropical leaf wall decals shown here in lime green, are a pretty close match.  How will you use Greenery in your home?

HELLO! It's been awhile.

Updating the blog is something I think about a lot, but rarely do I get to that point on the to-do-list.  I'll be checking in here more often and providing updates on what we're up to, sharing some of our favorite things and providing a small glimpse into our personal world.

Summer Don't Leave Me Now!

It's true what they say...the older you get, the faster time seems to fly by.  But seriously!  Can summer really be preparing for its exit?  It's hard for me to believe as we are STILL having 90+ degrees every single day.  See - it doesn't always rain here.  But the cool mornings and evenings is a gentle reminder that yes...summer is on the way out.  Can you hear my crying from where you're at?  

As I reflect back on the last few months, I'm reminded that we stayed true to our mantra...WORK hard, PLAY harder.  Here's a glimpse at our summer of 2014.  Concerts, weddings, vacations, weekend getaways.  Here's hoping you all made the most of your summer.  Cheers - P

The Big Freeze

I'll be the first to admit, there was something magical about the city last night.  This freeze was unlike any of recent memory.  I don't like snow.  I don't like freezing temps, but I decided to make the most of it and capture some of the beauty that's all around us.
