After being in Houston for the last 10ish years, Kyle and I are moving to Colorado! It’s crazy to think that we won’t be in the first city we met in, made so many friends in, went to school in, and have worked in our entire careers, but we are so excited about this next chapter. The lifestyle will be completely different going from a city to essentially right up in the mountains, and I’m pretty sure there is a whole new wardrobe ready to be sewn on my sewing machine once we get up there (hello snow!). We are ready for some outdoor adventures together, and for friends and family to come visit us!
Happy Tuesday, y’all! There is something about Tuesday that makes it the sleepiest day of the week. No longer rested from the weekend, yet so much more work week to go – am I right? It’s only fitting we talk about upgrading our bedding then. Continue reading “DIY Silk Pillow Cases”
When it comes to making pillow cases, I’d say I’m the queen. I have a stash of almost every color pillow case in the rainbow so that I can change them out whenever I feel like it. My go-to method for making pillow cases had always been the pocket method that I shared a couple years back, but recently I wanted to try out adding a zipper instead to give the pillow a sleek look on both sides. As it turns out – it’s almost just as easy! Continue reading “DIY Velvet Pillow Case with a Zipper”
Over the years of reading about home decorating, interior design, and browsing through thousands of home photos on Pinterest, there have been many color palettes that I have been drawn to. Pink and mustard, baby blue and coral, black and white with splashes of green, you name it. The one thing they have all had in common is that they built the color palette around one colorful item in the room. Whether it’s a bohemian rug with pink and blue medallions or an oil painting of a city scene with red and yellow buildings, you can take the colors from a piece that already has all of them represented to make it feel cohesive.

If there’s anything you’re used to seeing around here, it’s home decorating changes. No matter what, I’m always getting inspired to mix up the color scheme, add elements for different seasons, or even just rearrange furniture for the heck of it.
This Summer I got really inspired to add more color into my space. I read that the best way to decorate is to look at your wardrobe and see what colors you gravitate toward. As it turns out for me, that is a lot of white, gray, pink, green, and blue. I had the white, gray, and pink down, but adding green and blue was something new for me in my little bachelorette pad.

So remember when we were planning out Adriana’s small apartment layout and decor plans back in November? Well, she has finally moved in and we have some updates to share!
Each year for Thanksgiving, I alternate back and forth between going home to visit my family in Chicago and staying in Houston and hosting a Friendsgiving. This year, Kyle’s family is coming to town and we are hosting at his house! We spent the entire weekend menu planning, grocery shopping, and cleaning in anticipation, so I was happy I had figured out my plans for decorating a few weeks before!
