Take a walk on the wild side

Hello, friends! I'm switching gears a little bit today. I hope you don't mind too much. Although I usually show inspiring interiors and decorating projects, today I want to share some beauty from nature with you. In case you missed it earlier this week, I shared a few ways to use items from nature in your decor here.

We live in a very lush area of the country and like to get out and hike and go exploring in the spring and fall. Last weekend we went on a wildflower hike at nearby Norris Dam and there were lots of wildflowers in bloom. Today, for something a little different, I'm sharing the photos with you in the hopes that you'll get out and go exploring in nature for yourself! No matter where you live, there's something beautiful to see.

Thanks for dropping by, and have a great weekend!

Ideas for using turquoise as an accent color

Hello, friends! Thank goodness spring has finally arrived here! I've been refreshing our decor and adding a few spring touches lately. I took these photos on a recent sunny day and after looking at them I noticed a definite theme....TURQUOISE. I hadn't realized that I have touches of turquoise in almost every room of our house.

In the family room, the candles and letter "K" add touches of turqouise. There are also some squares in the granny square throw that have some turquoise.

Welcome to the lake. It's the favorite warm weather hangout for my family.

Giveaway for $50 stencil from Royal Design Studio

Hello, friends! Last week I revealed a chest of drawers that got a makeover with paint, crackle, and a damask stencil from Royal Design Studio. I took a vintage dresser that had great lines but lacked personality and gave it a brand new look.

Now I'm excited to announce that I'm partnering with Royal Design Studio to give you a chance to try one for yourself!

And they've JUST RELEASED some amazing new stencils! I adore the paisley stencil. There are lots of projects that I would love to use that one on...curtains, accent wall, pillows, and then some. My to-do list just got quite a bit longer.
