It’s that time of year again where chubby babies with arrows and disgusting heart-shaped candies abound. Yuck. I think I’ve made my stance on the whole Valentine’s Day nonsense clear before and, in case you were wondering, it hasn’t really changed. Maybe I’m just romantically challenged, I don’t know. But what I do know is every year for Valentine’s Day, I technically have a Valentine and I always ask to receive nothing, because I don’t want anything. Seriously. I definitely sit firmly in the “you should show your special person that you think they’re special all year long” boat. So Valentine’s Day is just crowded, noisy, and annoying. But if you know someone like me and still insist on getting them a present (you sweet-hearted soul, you), then I pulled together a list of acceptable gifts for romance haters, like myself 😉
Oh boy, the holidays are here and with that comes the most stressful part – what do I buy? Shopping for other people can be stressful if you’re not sure what to get someone. Like in my case, if you live with someone who very particular about everything and only has 2 hobbies that he likes to do. It can be frustrating to hunt for clues, so to help myself and anyone else out there with a difficult man on their list, I put together this list of useful gifts that anyone would use – even if it’s maybe not totally their style.
Hey all! Today’s post is a guest post from ECOS Paints. They are an eco-friendly paint company trusted by some major brands and with some great, modern colors to choose from. So when they contacted me to do a guest post about things you should check off your list before decorating a room, I thought it was a perfect fit. Check out their tips for room decorating below!
Interior design can be complicated. It requires artistic talent as well as plenty of strategic thinking. While a novice may think it can be done easily, you need to be careful. Not putting a lot of thought into decorating a room can create a hideous space that is hard to live in. There are five things you should consider first before forging ahead with an interior design project for a room.
I share a lot of interior design posts on here because I love looking at design, BUT I was, unfortunately, not gifted with an eye for it. So, designing my own space has been kind of an uphill battle. Sometimes I love it, sometimes I hate it. I just try to tackle it one room at a time so that I don’t overwhelm myself. The apartment has come a long way, but I think there’s still work to be done.
One part of it that I’m constantly struggling with are these two vintage accent chairs that were gifted to me by my well-meaning, wonderful mother. I mean, have you talked to your mother recently and tried to tell her that something wasn’t your style? I couldn’t turn the chairs down, nor can I get rid of them.
After my Tennessee vacation and little jaunt in Nashville, I saw so many cute neighborhoods and houses that I got curious and did some poking around on Zillow when I got back and I definitely found some really cute homes in really varying price ranges. Of course, while I was browsing I just happened to find my perfect dream home in Nashville! This place is beyond adorable, but for a kind of steep price tag of $255,000, it better some with all this cute furniture too.
