Happy Presidents Day! I have a fun blog post about Mixing Pillow Patterns and Colors. I shared several pillows combos and my “Pillow Rules”! Hope it helps! Read the post HERE
“I need help with the layout of this room. Currently thinking of buying a lighter sofa and side chair and eliminating the sofa & loveseat if that would help with layout better. Thank you so much! I have learned so much from your instagram & fb group” -Brooke McBride
Really I think your layout is great. If you were to change to a chair I think it would feel off balance because of the large windows. You want something substantial on that side of the room under the tall windows. What about doing a sectional? Then you could leave your recliner chair there too. Also if you go with a lighter sofa/sectional keep in mind the color of your rug if you want to keep it. I like the pops of white with the cream rug- but if your new sofa is cream the rug will have to change. You have done really well so far!!
Head to todays blog post HERE–
Remember a couple Friday Favorites ago I shared a Secretary Desk I found and couldn’t decide on blue or the white? Well I got the white and I have to say I am LOVING it! This piece would be so great in so many homes and in so many spaces. Come see what it looks like, well after the kids played with it for a couple of days…. Don’t worry I still let them play with it, but it just accessorized a little differently.
I recently came across an article in Country Living Magazine, “Trends for Fall”. The article shared 5 things that are OUT for home decor. Now you all know me, I am about using pieces that you love in your home. But if you are in the market for some new pieces for your home or are bored of what you have…this article it really helpful! I shared some great pieces that I searched for to match their trend predictions, like $10 pillow covers! Before you head to my blog I thought I would share with just my email subscribers what Country Living said was OUT….
OUT- Generic Furniture– “Instead of buying the whole set, people are now mixing and matching for a one-of-a-kind look.”
OUT- Copper Home Accessories- “It’s the overly shiny, obviously fake home accents that have flooded the market in recent years that are beginning to look dated.”
OUT- Marble Accessories- “A few marble touches here and there can be perfectly lovely. But the recent trend of all marble everywhere is a bit tired.”
OUT- Boring Bedding- “The days of a white coverlet, white shams, and a duvet on every bed are changing.”
See what I had to say over on my blog today about these trends. It has me a tiny bit excited for fall!
ASK NESTING WITH GRACE-
Megan sent me an email with this question- “I want to paint my hall but unsure on what paint color. I like bright colors.” She just painted her front door the bright yellow. She also asked in the Nesting with Grace Facebook Group and attached the photo with the gray paint sample…
I suggested and everyone in the group agreed that she should paint her walls white so the yellow would be the main focal point, especially since she said she likes bright colors. I think we often forget that white is a color and it is really great way to brighten up your home! Then she asked if she should hang anything on the opposite side of the new white table she added. I told her I wouldn’t because it could be too busy. Let the white entry table is a great focal point! Love how it turned out…
You can submit a design question to our Facebook Group or send me an email all right- HERE!
Hello friends! I am so thankful for my email subscribers. Sometimes I feel like I wish I knew who was actually subscribed and I could see your face! All I see is an email and that really tells me nothing. So in an effort to get to know you better I am offering a special service to my email subscribers ONLY! Pop over to may blog post today to see what I have in-store for you.
I also want to start sharing a little more behind the scenes and pictures that don’t make the cut for my blog. Today on my blog I am talking about Three EASY tips you can do to refresh your home. One tip I gave was to “Get Rid Of Something.” I didn’t share any pictures on the blog for that tip. But I included them below for just you. The first pic is the picture that made it to my Instagram yesterday. I bought some new plants and I actually took away lamps that were on my sideboard that have been there for close to three years (too long if you ask me:)). They always bothered me because you could see the inside of the lamp when you were on the sofa.
You can see the ottoman I tried for Monday’s post compared to the small one I had. I have still not decided on an ottoman, mainly because the one I was “trying” there works for now. And so many of you suggested keeping with something soft, and I totally agree with that.
Anyways I hope you pop over to todays blog post and it gives you some inspiration!
Facebook brings out the bold and the beautiful. People are not afraid to say if they “like” something. I learned that the hard way. Someone shared a photo of my front room on their popular Facebook page and I got a not so nice comment. I actually learned a thing or two from it and took it as constructive- come see what I mean.
