Sherwin Williams 2018 Color of the Year: Oceanside

Sherwin Williams recently released their 2018 Color of the Year- Oceanside. This vibrant color is extremely rich with deep blue and emerald tones.

Pumpkin Decorating Guide

It is so relieving to finally hit fall. The weather in Austin is just now cooling down ever so slightly… but honestly, you can never predict what it will be. Regardless, we still like to pretend it’s Autumn. We imagine what it would be like if all our trees turned shades of red, orange, and yellow and fell into huge yards in piles that you could hide under....

October Mood Board

Our favorite thing about decorating for October has to be the layers. Mixing patterns and textures on top of each other to create a warm space is exactly what we’re going for. Classic autumn design calls for earthy and jewel tones- shades like maroon, emerald green, navy blue, burnt orange, and mustard, for example. (See this month’s color scheme here!) For...

Kids Bedroom Mood Board

A stylish kid’s room?! Unfortunately this is a rare sighting, which is such a shame because bright colors, frilly accents, and lots & lots of pattern speaks volume in a great space. Children can have great taste, too, you know, and it’s about time we start showcasing that mindset in our own homes. It’s really quite funny to think of it this way, but...

Let’s Talk About… Wallpaper!

We all remember the days of absolutely hideous wallpaper… Every time my parents were house hunting, “NO WALLPAPER” was one of the first things on their list. The scraping and tearing and re-painting, ugh. It was such a hassle and completely terrifying how bad some of it was. However, we’re blessed to be living in a time of some great wallpaper. I...

Top 10 Favorite Lucite Furniture

Ahhhhh, lucite. The trend of the decade- and for so many great reasons. Because these pieces are completely transparent, they really open up the space that it lives in. This is why they’re perfect for smaller scaled rooms or even a room that doesn’t receive that much light. We all know the idea of placing mirrors up high in a typically smaller, darker room...
