Perhaps, I should rename this post, “How To Design Kid’s Bedroom WITHOUT Any Terrible Movie/Cartoon/Video Game Characters + Colors That You Despise!”
What do you think?
When creating a personal space for both kids and adults alike, it’s important to consider the individual’s personality, tastes and preferences. You want the room to feel like an extension of that person, rather than a hodge-podge of things that are thrown together because they look nice. While children may not always have a say in the way things are done (at least that’s the case in my house!), when it comes to their bedrooms you want them to be a part of the design process.
Apparently, this Fall 2017 is all about texture. First, we headed in the direction of soft and cuddly — remember yesterday’s TEDDY BEAR COAT. Now, we make a full 180 and go sleek and shiny. Folks, prepare yourself for the return of patent leather.
Sorry for the radio silence last Thursday/Friday. It was finally the day(s) the moving trucks arrived. I thought I would be more emotional, but between the manual labor and the psychological relief of having the most difficult portion of this move/transition complete, I think I was simply too tired to be sad. Now that we’ve settled into our temporary housing scenario (thank goodness for extremely kind + generous in-laws!), I’m more exited than ever to move onto and INTO the next chapter.
So where were we?! Ahhhh, fashion + lifestyle. It feels good to be back.
The room where all the best night’s sleep goes down.
Is it just me, or do all of the most restful, deep sleeps happen in your own bed!? I could be in a penthouse suite of a 5 star hotel, sleeping on 1000 ct. Frette linen, with some magical self-adjusting mattress, but I still won’t sleep as well as I do in my own bed.
So, in case you were wondering, YES, my master bedroom design plan is fairly important to me!
There is no better way to start your week than with the friendly faces and kind words of TSA employees.
Yeah, not so much.
Thankfully, I am now through the gates of JFK Airport security (Hell’s annex), settled into the lounge and enjoying a few minutes of uninterrupted free WiFi before boarding my flight back to Cleveland. My NYC visit was short and very sweet, as we got to celebrate my future sister-in-law at a bridal shower that my mom and I hosted. In addition to the ridiculously delicious pasta at L’ARTUSI, the true VIP of this weekend was definitely IT COSMETICS SUPERHERO LINER.
As you’re reading this, I’m likely flying high in the sky on my way to NYC for the weekend!
I rarely get to spend mother-daughter time with my mom without my husband or children in tow, so I’m using this wedding-related weekend getaway (we’re celebrating my future sister-in-law at her bridal shower!) to unwind with my mama. I booked us a hotel suite and we have no other plans aside from shopping, eating, drinking and enjoying each other’s company. I have a mile long list of projects and to-dos waiting for me back home — the moving truck comes on Friday! — but I’m looking forward to tuning out the noise and stress, at least temporarily. Sort of like a real-life “time-out”… but for grown-ups and with booze.
Get your own weekend groove on with this week’s assortment of Friday Link Love articles, recipes and shopping finds!
There is always a time and place for sweatpants/yoga pants.
Joggers (THESEare my absolute favorite!) have elevated the comfy staple to new levels and now, with the right styling you can wear those bad boys most anywhere (office or workplace, aside). Now, what if I told you there was an equally comfortable article of clothing that was just as soft, just as easy, but would bring your casual style to a whole new level of chic!?
Question of the day: Is the formal living room officially dead?!
When we went through the process of finding and ultimately buying a house, one of the biggest questions that was thrown around was, do we really need a living room? I’m talking about that more formal sitting space that people used to use a lot back in the day. That is, before open design plans and oversized family rooms with comfy couches and giant 4D flat screen TVS (with surround sound) reigned supreme.
