Designing with Chairish

Today I am bringing some color to a living room with furnishings from Charish! Have you heard of Charish? Well, it is a website for designers and design lovers to buy and sell vintage furniture. How awesome is that? I found many items I am thinking about using in upcoming projects! To find out more info on how Charish works, check it out here.

Now back to my style board. This space all began with the gorgeous green vintage rug. I love bringing in lots of color to a room without it being overwhelming to the eye.

Charish has a lot of beautiful rugs to choose from, the design possibilities are endless! Visit their rug page to view them all!


DIY Friday - Wall Stencil

Happy Friday! Hope you are enjoying your summer so far! I know I am. Can you believe it is going to be August in a few days!? Crazy!

Anyways, a while ago I wanted to do something with the back wall in my dining room. I felt that additional artwork or family photos would be a little too much since the opposite walls both had gallery photo walls. I loved the idea of wall paper but unfortunately everything I liked was out of our budget. So I turned to Pinterest of course and did a little research of stenciling. I found a link, which I can no longer find, that offered a printable that I could re-size and cut out of cardboard. I followed the bloggers instructions and got to work. 

Then I began tracing my template onto the wall. I did a little at a time because you can imagine how tedious this was. 

My lines were not as even as I would of liked and I didn't think about using a level as I moved on from one side of the wall to the other (which I will explain later). However, I was slowly moving a long and loving it as I stepped away admiring the once boring wall. 

So now that my stenciling wall is finished, you want to know what I learned from this project? Next time, buy a stencil to tape to the wall instead of making my own! Or just be a little more precise in my stenciling...like use a level and a ruler! 

DIY Learning experience:

-I should of made sure the stencil was level and cut more carefully.

-When placing it on the wall to trace, I wish I would of used a level to make 
  sure each shape was lined up correctly.

-I should of started my stenciling in the center of the wall in order for each 
  end to look the same.

-Lastly, I wish I would of traced a few of the shapes onto paper first to see 
  how each one played off of each other. 

Well, you live and you learn right? Overall, I am very happy with how my wall stenciling turned out! And when people come into my home and admire it from afar, they don't notice all the little imperfections that I know are there! 

Here are a few examples of interior walls with stenciling that I love! I cannot get over how much they look like wallpaper!

Restoration Hardware Baby

A few weeks ago, I visited the Restoration Hardware Baby showroom in Santa Monica. The baby and children's room vignettes were gorgeous and so playful at the same time! I wanted to take home a lot of pieces with me!

Here are a few of my favorite snap shots taken with my iphone...

I am IN LOVE with these mirrored wall letters!! I want them in my own room!

After leaving the store, I had to go through their catalog and website to see everything again. A lot of accessories would look amazing in all different areas of the home, not only children's spaces. Here are some of my favorites that I found online.
