Peeping Bitches {Jana of Vintage Whites}

Posted on September 22, 2014

Time to tell the truth readers, how many of you attend open houses at places you totally don’t intend on buying but you just want to see what the house looks like inside? I’m raising my hand because I am totally guilty. I just love to see how people decorate and live in their houses, which is of course why Peeping Bitches is probably my favorite series on this blog. And why blogs are awesome, because you can virtually peep in houses all over the world from your cozy armchair! Today we get to peep into a local lady’s house and this one is kind of fun because even though Jana has let us peep in her house AND she lives in Fort Collins, we’ve never met in person yet! But after seeing her house and her great vintage taste, I’m convinced that we could be really great friends! Allow …

Thursday Ten {Anthropologie Home}

Posted on September 18, 2014

Earlier this week Anthropologie announced an expansion of their home line that is carried online and on a limited basis in stores. Geesh, as if I need any more reason to spend money there. It’s enough that my whole clothing allowance is spent in that store but now I hate to start a home decor habit there as well. Hopefully the home stuff will get marked down as quickly as the clothing so maybe I can afford a few pieces. Today I wanted to share 10 items I pinned from their new home line, and up front I’ll say, these were just pinned so prices weren’t even considered. If it was pretty and caught my eye I pinned it.   And if you want a good laugh go read this article on how to stage Anthropologie furniture. They certainly do have their share of ridiculous things like this and this! …

Cutting Edge Stencils {a little girl’s room update}

Posted on September 17, 2014

This summer I started on a revamp of my daughter’s room. I’m still working on it. Obviously I can only get an entire room done when I have the pressure of the One Room Challenge or something along those lines to keep me rolling. I actually did my guest bedroom and my laundry in under six weeks – when I had a deadline. Now, I’m aiming for under three months. Terribly pathetic. Here’s what Miss Alice’s room looked like when I started. So far I’ve – stripped the wallpaper painted the room in Sherman Williams’s White Dogwood painted her bed painted a chest purchased new bedding and curtains purchased a desk purchased a desk chair stenciled a wall Yesterday I finally figured out what the wall behind her bed needed – gold. Of course if something’s lacking in my house it must be gold paint. I used the little diamonds allover stencil …

Window Shopping {Furbish Studio}

Posted on September 15, 2014

I hope you all had a great weekend. We got this weird, super cold spell in Colorado on Thursday and Friday night but luckily it warmed right back up by Saturday and Sunday. One thing I didn’t get to do this weekend is shop. Not a big deal since I’m really don’t enjoy going into stores and shopping- I much prefer shopping from my computer. And one place that I love to look online for cool home decor is Furbish Studio. Furbish Studio was started by Jaime Meares, whom I heard speak at Alt Summit in January and she totally seems like a person you’d want to go dancing with. Furbish Studio has their flagship store in Raleigh, NC but it also has a large inventory of items available for purchase online here. Today I wanted to show y’all a few things that I’m really loving from their store. 1// Kilim …
