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!
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.

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!
Whenever the seasons change from Summer to Fall, I always feel like I need to do some redecorating. I always have tons of flowers and bright colors on display during the Summer, but I like to bring in some cozy vibes and more muted tones for the Fall. In order to do this easily and on the cheap, I turned to this boho yarn wall hanging project.
I’VE MOVED! OK, this is old news. I moved about a month ago, but it’s still surreal walking into my apartment every evening, seeing the space and realizing it’s just mine. I still expect Megan to walk through the door at any moment (let’s be honest, not to worry, she still does). Even though my mom did a stellar job at forcing me to organize and decorate A.S.A.P.- literally within the first 48 hours of living there – there are still spaces I want to decorate and add to, but I figured I should show you before I start to introduce any new DIY’s!

When I moved into my apartment, my mom noted that it would be really nice to have a wreath on the door. I had honestly never thought about getting one before, since I knew I would only see it for a few seconds a day leaving the house and then a few seconds more when I came home. The more I thought about it, though, I realized how lovely it would really be to have just a little something special to greet me at the door. Continue reading “DIY Non-Traditional Fall Wreath”→
