Confessions of a Chair Addict(s)

Posted on by Kahli Posted in Furniture, Thrift Shopping, Vintage | 10 Comments

Remember that debate between my sister and I concerning the placement of the bookcase? Well it’s still currently part of the gallery wall as I insisted. Yay! However, that left the corner behind the sofa very sad and lonely. Just look at that stupid thermostat! Breeze has really been enjoying his portrait, he takes a stroll across the mantel, admiring himself on a daily basis. Anyway…I thought of possible decor items to fill the space; a large wall mirror, more …

One Down…25 More to Go

Posted on by Kahli Posted in Decor Inspiration, Inspiration | 1 Comment

Hello, lovely readers! We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed your time spent with loved ones. Milla and I weren’t really in the Christmas spirit when we woke up due to lingering sickness, but we somehow managed to cook a large dinner for the family. While it was a last minute decision, it did come out nice. We didn’t have the chance to decorate for the holidays due to the lack of space to store the decorations afterwards. …

Wall of Gold: Gallery Wall Progress

Posted on by Milla Posted in DIY, Our Apartment | 5 Comments

Hi lovelies! How’s everyone’s week so far? Mine? Well, I’ve been sick…again. Just hacking away all of my design inspiration. So it’s been bad a week for me. But at least one twin has been productive. Kah is making wonderful progress on her bedroom. And she finished hanging the frames for the gallery wall. See a few sneaks below:   You can see some of the hallway here. I’m sure you all notice that hideously standard ceiling mount light. We …

Sisterly Love: From Milla to Me, Merry Christmas!

Posted on by Kahli Posted in Our Apartment | 14 Comments

With Christmas just around the corner, it is not surprising that I haven’t done any Christmas shopping yet. I didn’t expect the month of December to fly by so quickly :(. I have a few people on my list. Breeze is most likely expecting a can of tuna. I’m not sure what I want to get Milla though. I’ll probably allow her to pick something out and I’ll pay for it…like she did for me! If you remember my moodboard …

A Peek into Kahli’s Closet-Sized Bedroom (UPDATED)

Posted on by Kahli Posted in Inspiration, Mood Boards | 11 Comments

The title of this post may be confusing to some of you at the moment, but let me explain. In a nutshell, my bedroom is really small (9×10 or something), it’s not as small as a closet unless we’re talking about a walk-in closet. A bedroom of this size doesn’t leave too much room for items other than a bed, dresser and maybe a nightstand or two, but I’ve managed to fit a lovely chair in the corner. As mentioned …

Inspire Me Art: Watercolor Fashion Illustrations

Posted on by Kahli Posted in art, Decor Inspiration, Inspiration | 2 Comments

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend! I’ve spent most of my weekend, sewing some pillows to dress up my bed, working on a moodboard for my bedroom, and finding artwork for my bedroom. I’ve been loving the look of watercolor illustrations lately, especially fashion illustrations. I believe a stylish, fashion illustration will look great with the classic look the black and white stripes create in my bedroom. There’s no better place to find original art than on …

Double Take: Black & White Striped Chair Before & After

Posted on by Kahli Posted in Before & After Projects, Upholstery Projects | 32 Comments

Hello, lovely readers! Hope you all are having a great day! I have a makeover treat for you today. I’ve finally finished upholstering the black and white striped chair for my bedroom. My determination to finish this chair was even too much for my injured thumb, which I had accidentally shut in the door. OUCH! It feels a lot better today than it did on Sunday, but I did hit it a few more times with the mallet in the …
