When it comes to the holiday season, I like to start small. I’ll start by introducing Christmas socks into my wardrobe, playing Sufjan Stevens’ holiday records on Pandora, and I usually change the wallpaper on my smartphone. This year, I’m sharing a festive design in a few color schemes, depending on your holiday preference! You can download them as a wallpaper for your phone or desktop, or, keep reading to find out how to print and use as a festive iPhone case. Continue Reading
Where is summer running off to in such a hurry? Even though I'm a bit sad to see another season come to a close, I'm quietly giddy about the return of autumn. I can't help myself, I'm just so in love with the season. Big scarves, chilly breeze, pumpkin-flavored everything… it's hands-down the best season ever. While there are still a few weeks remaining until fall is officially here, I've got just the project to start you transitioning. Continue Reading
Our guest bathroom needed help the day we moved into our home. But, as things go, it got ignored. There were so many more important things to do in the home, and the bathroom wasn’t actually in truly awful condition.

Hello to my fellow renters! Here's the situation: I've been fighting with my kitchen ever since I moved into my apartment. It's completely functional, but it's not ideal for the following reasons: it's way too small, the cabinets do nothing to help visually, and the walls have been stained from cooking accidents of years past.

We love all things Scandinavian-inspired and I knew that I wanted the space to feel cozy and welcoming. Before, our space felt a bit blunt and loud. Our geometric painted wall was one of the first things that caught your eye in the space and I wanted to finally get rid of the turquoise color, which was never really my favorite anyway.

Living in a rental is not my ideal situation, but I’ve learned to make the best of the space that I have and still make the customizations that I want. One of the best ways to customize a space is with a fun accent wall, and for renters who cannot paint or apply wallpaper, removable wallpaper is king! I wanted to create a completely customized accent wall without painting it, so instead, I created customized removable wallpaper using a form of solid-colored contact paper. Continue Reading
