Stylish Ideas for a Happy Home

Using an oversized whiteboard gives you enough room for notes, lists, messages and more!

You’ve just counted down to the New Year and now it’s 2016! You have 12 months ahead of you to start fresh and reach for the stars. So how do you make sure that your year stays on track the way you want it to? Organization of course!

Whether you’re usually organized or tend to be the opposite, taking time to incorporate new and creative ways to help your home remain in one brilliant piece can really make a difference. So instead of choosing what’s always been done, instead, shake things up to see how fabulous your life can really be!

Create a Keep the Change Jar: 

Place a pretty jar (such as a mason jar!) where everyone can see so that any loose coins around the house always have a home.

Have a Calendar on the Fridge:

Place a monthly or weekly calendar in a high traffic area such as your refrigerator so that it gets multiple views a day!

Make a Homework Station:

Create a mini homework station so that pens, pencils, tape, markers, rulers and more always have a place to reside instead of on the floor or counter.

Incorporate Wooden Crates:

Instead of piling up homework, boots, backpacks and sports gear, opt for some rustic wooden crates that can be stacked and placed however you like. Surprisingly you’ll find that with this simple idea, your entryway will appear completely put together as well as stylish!

Use a 4-Month Calendar:

When they said the early bird gets the worm, they weren’t mistaken. With a four-month calendar in place you’ll always be ahead of the game!

Design a Key Holder:

I know it seems like EVERYONE should have one of these built into his or her homes but we found surprisingly not. If you don’t already have a prominent key holder, make sure to incorporate one this year instead of wasting precious time looking for those lost keys.

Contain Your Cookbooks:

Instead of displaying your cookbooks out on the counter, place them in a cool wire basket. You’ll be astonished at how much space this frees up as well as will help you keep your kitchen looking super tidy.

Display Your Jewelry: 

It can take hours going through a huge jewelry box or closet to find that one bracelet or necklace you want to wear. Instead, display your most loved pieces around and in vases for easy access and of course to save time!

How to Create a Chic Kitchen Backsplash

A Simple Upgrade that MAKES a Difference!

A before look at the kitchen we easily remodeled with a contemporary backsplash

Designing a kitchen backsplash tends to be one of those projects that most likely falls at the end of the to-do list. Hanging a few pictures and organizing the counter space is sometimes all that people find the time to do. However, until you actually see the difference that a backsplash can make, you might never understand the power that this small upgrade can have.

New Year, New Colors…

2015 Color Predictions!

2015 color trends

Image via They All Hate Us

We have the whole year ahead of us to dream, create, dazzle and delight! Life will be changing all around us, from new fashion trends to new hairstyles, breaking news stories and more, 2015 will make its own mark.

In the home decorating world, the most popular trends and colors will gradually make their unveiling throughout the next twelve months. With Pantone announcing “Marsala” as the color of the year, we thought it would be fun to make our own predictions as to what colors will ultimately reign in 2015!

2015 color predictions

1. Warm Earthy Tones: With Marsala debuting as the 2015 color of the year, it seems only right that earthy tones will be seen alongside. Expect a warm mixture of toasty browns and oranges to chic and sophisticated hues of tan and beige.

2015 color trends

2. Bold Color Mixing: Bright colors are always in fashion! This year we expect there to be more mixing and matching of colors for an energetic impact. A bold feature wall or colorful piece of furniture is a wonderful starting point followed by a vibrant piece of art, pillow, duvet cover, lamp shade or kitchen appliance for the finishing touch.

3. Green Makes a Comeback: Benjamin Moore announced Guilford Green as their 2015 color of the year. A pale silvery green, this soothing hue creates a peaceful interior that’s hard to match. On the other end of the spectrum, warm olive tones are being seen in both furniture and wall décor. This rich, natural hue is truly lovely (in the right shade of course!).

4. Gray as a Neutral: Sophisticated, chic, trendy and stylish, gray is the “it” color. With the ability to stand alone or act as a neutral, gray isn’t going anywhere anytime soon! From walls to furniture, linens, rugs, accent pieces and beyond, there is not much that can’t be covered in this clean and polished hue.

5. Everything Blue: We saw blue make a comeback last year and we think it’s here to stay (at least for a little while longer..!). Bright Mediterranean style blues to gorgeous ocean shades, deep navy tones and more transform any space into majestic haven.
