We're on a decorating kick here, I guess, and now Leslie is here today with look into her home. Her house is so cute! She has amazing style and her home is always so warm and welcoming.
I love decorating and I'm one of those people who is always rearranging furniture and accessories every few months for a new look.
I have always loved blues and whites and since my husband is from Maine and that is our favorite vacation spot, our house has always had a "coastal vibe" (even though we are stuck in the dry, Utah desert). Lately though, I've added more vintage elements and pops of green, red and yellow and I finally feel like the look I have is comfortable, and really reflects our family.
Kim recently helped me create this picture wall. This wall is such a large white space and I could never figure out what to put there. I found most of these picture frames at D.I. (thrift store) and then decided what colors I wanted to paint them. This took a few weeks of rearranging and trying different combinations. I didn't want too matchy, but also not too busy. I am really happy with how it turned out.
(I'd love to paint these walls grey, but that is a big project... some day).
My sister, Kim made this vinyl tree with my husband's and my initials. She did a great job. I put the vinyl right on the wall and hung the frame around it.
When we got these family pictures taken in the fall, I didn't want to spend a lot of money hanging them since I knew I would want to change them up after a little while and hang something else there. I found these flat, glass only frames at Hobby Lobby. They are very inexpensive and just the look I was going for.
Other than the pets (which our kids would love to have, but they haven't quite talked us into it yet), what do you think, Kim? Does that sound like me? Viewers, does that look like me? I don't know. I have always like bright colors. Maybe I was on to something when my Mom let Kim and I re-do our bedrooms in Jr. High and pick out any color scheme. (Mine was: primary colors, Mickey Mouse, and M.C. Escher). Weird : )
Yes, Les, I think that totally sounds like you! Aren't her boys so cute! I love those family pictures. And I really need you to make me some cute pillows, she has a great eye for fabrics. Liking patterns and solids, yes, yes, you should have seen her room - solid bright blue on the bottom, bright red chair rail, and red/yellow/blue sprinkles wallpaper on top, with framed M.C. Escher prints and a Mickey Mouse poster. It was a little crazy, but cute!
