It’s been a long long time since you guys have seen me around these parts and an even longer time since my sister Milla has visited! But here I am to do what I do best, which is write posts about items in Milla’s room haha. At least the current post I’m writing is connected to her in someway. You see this nightstand used to be in my room.
But as you know my room has changed quite a bit since last year and my nightstands now live in Milla’s bedroom and with a new look!
The color is a custom color matched from a fabric swatch and it’s beautiful. The two of us hand painted the pair of nightstands a few weeks ago after days of debating on cobalt blue or turquoise. Blue won out. I love it in the new bold color over the subtle gray!
Milla is also the new owner of my teal lamps, which used to live in the hallway for a while. She really hit the jackpot on my compulsive buying and painting projects. The nightstands were painted to match the cobalt blue desk vanity also in her room.
We moved the turquoise cane armchair next to the desk for a colorful vignette and Breeze vastly approved of the new look besides he will follow a chair to any corner. Read more
I haven’t been to the thrift stores in a few weeks when I usually stop in a three times a week. I guess it was my way of trying to save money and I was sick of thrift stores because all of the shopping we did for our birthday party. I went to the Goodwill on Thursday intending to buy a brass lamp for my bedroom and it is probably a good thing that I didn’t find one since I have too many lamps in the house to begin with. While I didn’t find the lamp I was looking for, I did find this hideous mirror.
…and yes I did buy it! I think even Breeze was perplexed with all the details on it. When I showed it to Milla, her first question was: “Kah, is that fruit?” Sigh, yes Milla it is and pine cones. My intention is to spray paint it a lovely shade of teal. Spray paint can cover all evils. The mirror only set me back $12 so it won’t be a complete waste if I don’t like it.
I have a feeling I’ll love it though. When I convinced myself to purchase it, this is what I envisioned. Can you spot the fruit?

As the title states, I love mason jars, especially the blue Ball Perfect Mason brand. I’ve been looking at mason jar decor lately on Pinterest after purchasing three jars from the thrift store. This is one of my favorite photos. The pink peonies are just so vibrant against the blue tinted jars.
So needless to say my mason jar collection has expanded from three jars to 9. I’ve decided to display 8 jars on my window ledge. Would it be overwhelming to put flowers in each jar in my window?
I know I’m late, but have any of you been to Target lately! I was stunned by the selection of new decor they have in stock. I’m talking about some very stylish pieces. I spent about a good hour in Target cramming things into my cart, but I did manage to put a few things back even though it was difficult. Try to hold onto your wallet a little better than I did. I’m going to share with you all the lovely items that now reside in our home.
Isn’t this pink chevron pillow a beauty!? I just knew they would be the perfect accent to Milla’s navy and turquoise bedroom and they’re only $19.99. Hurry, they are going fast and are already sold out online.
You didn’t think I could just leave the turquoise one there on the shelf, now did you? I didn’t purchase the gold lamp shade
because I had no use for it, but it could really liven up a neutral room for $19.99. However, I did leave with two lampshades that were a good fit for the dining room. Read more
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. I couldn’t imagine where we’d put a Christmas tree, other than taking it to our parents’ attic. And our allergies dislike pine trees and Breeze loves to climb the trees and torture the ornaments. The only Christmas decoration we have is a white ceramic figurine that was given to Milla as a gift last year.
Speaking of Christmas gifts…we gave Breeze the best gift of all. A self-portrait on the gallery wall and it looks like he loves it! He was very impressed when we unrolled it and voiced his approval with a meow. Sadly, we still have to fill up about 25 frames.
Anyway, Milla and I have been debating the placement of our turquoise bookcase. Milla likes it behind the sofa. Please forgive this outdated picture! Just act like you don’t see the missing lampshade…
While, I like it here as part of the gallery wall. I think Breeze is on my team! We plan to fill the bookcase with white ceramics at some point.
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 Etsy. I fell in love with so many, but I especially love the illustrations by Jessica Durrant of Jessica Illustrations. The colors are so vibrant I can’t even chose a favorite! However, I really like the line work in the first one.
Hi all, good morning! Unfortunately, we don’t have any makeovers for you guys yet, but I spent most of last night browsing Etsy for throw pillows for Kah. I was searching for bright floral pillows and decided to show you guys what I found.
This pillow above…Kah is thinking about putting it on her bed to add a punch of color to her black and white color scheme. It is available for sale $29.95 or cheaper for $13.95
These lovelies are like artwork on a pillow. They are for sale by Henrietta and Morty. They have some great graphic and Japanese inspired pillows. The first one is $30.94 and the latter is also $30.94
Happy Friday everyone! I’m so ready for the weekend. This week just flew by in a blink! For the past few days we’ve been working on a gallery wall for a super long wall in our living room. If you read the title of this post you would know that the wall is about 12 feet long. There is a “mantle” attached to the wall as well that is probably over 9 feet. Here’s a picture:
This picture doesn’t even really show just how long this wall really is! We believe that a gallery is the best choice and we’ve always wanted one in the apartment and this wall appears to be the best location for one. Here is a roundup of some gallery walls we love found via pinterest or the web.
What I love the most about this gallery wall is the arrangement. The collection of gold frames vary in size and that metallic “B” is a great standout. This is probably the photo that we’ll take the most inspiration from since we also want our frames to be gold. Read more
