Full Length Mirror for the Bedroom

For the longest time I've been looking for a full length mirror to put in the bedroom. I either see a gorgeous mirror with a price tag I don't like, or I see the right price but the mirror is just so-so. I didn't want to settle. I didn't have to. I found the oval mirror at a yard sale for just $1. It didn't have a frame, but I grabbed it anyway. My first thought was to get some plywood or an old door and wood appliques.  But then I remembered I … [Read more...]

The Campbell Street House

If you follow my blog, you know I like to take exterior photos of historic homes in the area and give ya'll a tour.

This is the historic house on Campbell Street that I love.It's not extravagant, rather, it has simple clean lines and pretty urns out front. All … [Read more...]

My fave purchase from Amazing Grace Antiques is my white bedroom dresser.This little DREAM banner came in the mail yesterday.I … [Read more...]

To Beadboard or Not to Beadboard

Personally, I feel you can never have too much beadboard in your house. It's classic and fun all at once. It's elegant yet cottage-chic. Beadboard lends a clean look to any room and is an easy way to add architectural detail to plain old walls. Shoot, you can even apply it to stock cabinetry, giving the everyday kitchen a customized look. I've got standard beadboard in my kitchen, and variations of it on my stairway and in one of my bathrooms. … [Read more...]

Dreamy Blue Bedroom

When I think of bedrooms, I always think of blue and white. Blue is such a restful color while white lends a crisp pop. Our bedroom isn't cluttered ... rather, it displays a minimalist decor point of view. I've tried to include some softness to keep it from looking too cold, but I like that it's not busy. I think a cluttered bedroom would keep me awake, but that's just me. The little pink lamp was a $25 find at Amazing Grace Antiques. The bed was … [Read more...]
