What I’m Loving: Kitchen Wall Color Inspo

I’ve recently talked about my big kitchen remodel, but one of the smaller tasks is changing out my wall color. Right now, it is a retro mint green color, which I actually really love. But, I feel like my house started to become a hodge podge of colors between each room after I did my first round of painting after purchasing my house.

As I’ve done overhauls in each room, I’ve been toning down the color a little bit. I actually stuck close to my original palette, but just found a grayer, softer version of each color that refreshes and ties everything together more. My advice when painting a room is that the color is always going to be double as bold as you think it will be, so maybe take a step down from what you think you’ll like.

What I’m Loving: 10 Ways to Practice Self Care

As the summer approaches, I feel like life always becomes so busy that it often feels hard to keep up. Its important to remember to pause and take some time to take care of yourself. I feel like its so easy to tell other people to do this, but its so hard to do yourself!

What I’m Loving: Shades of Green

We’ve finally made it to spring! I love this time of year when the flowers in my yard start popping up as if winter never even happened. I try to bring as much fresh flowers and greenery into my home as possible.

My favorite flowers are the peonies and lilacs from my yard because they smell amazing. Instead of giant arrangements that are difficult to maintain, I’m loving collections of jars and vases to create pretty displays. For my table, I mixed new vases from Target’s Hearth & Hand collection with an vintage bottle in a similar tone and added a pop with tulip stems.

What I’m Loving: Less is More for Decor

When I first purchased my house, it was a huge space for someone just out of college who didn’t have nice (or any) furnishings. I made due with what I could pull together from hand-me downs, to things that I found on the side of the road and refinished. I’m so grateful for this time in my life because it taught me the value of working really hard for something and being creative to make due.

As I’ve been able to add more thoughtful pieces to my house, I’ve also had to learn the lesson of taking things away. As a decorator, I like to add more and more pretty things to a space, but sometimes doing less can be significantly more.

What I’m Loving: Summer Yard Goals

Its the time of winter in Minnesota where I start to stop believing that it will ever be summer again. After this long winter, I can’t wait to start spring planting and planning my patio decor. Last year I styled my patio with some amazing Tommy Bahama outdoor fabric and I want to build upon the tropical theme with my patio this year. Here’s the inspiration that I’m loving right now:

The mustard yellow velvet along with the green plants is amazing. I love the retro vibes!
