• {It’s in the Details} Chair Decor – Because Chairs Deserve to Look Pretty Too!

    I know I’ve posted on chairware before, but since chairs are the perfect canvas for you to add some pretty, and because there are so many ways to do it, I think it is worthy of a second post!  Here are some new ways to pretty up your chairs.

    {Chic Update on the Chair Sash}

    Honestly, I was never a big fan of the chair sash. They often look too fussy or cheap.  But take a basic fabric in a classic color and drape it on your chair in a new but simple way and it becomes FAB.

    There is nothing prettier than a delicate sheer fabric in lace or peachy pink tones. I don’t know which I love more – the lace chair cap or the peach ruffles!

    {Updated Ribbon Chair Decor}

    While ribbon chair decor is not new, I love the way these examples make an aging trend new again.  The way the ribbons are tied on horizontally in the photo on the left and the way the ribbons are really long but chopped off at different lengths on the right are a new take on the ribbon chair decor.  And joining the Mr. and Mrs. chairs with a garland on top of the ribbons is a lovely touch.

    Do you love seeing chairs prettied-up?  Or are you tired of chairware?  If you like chair decor, what is your favorite way of seeing it done?

    Also, I’m taking requests on my weekly features!  Do you have a planning problem or issue you need addressed, a DIY you’d like to see, a color palette you need an inspiration board for, or a detail you want featured?  Leave it in the comments or head over to my facebook page and let me know.

      I’m in the early planning stages and am trying to decide on a color scheme. I think I’ve narrowed it down to two options —

      (1) dark purple (like plum), Carolina Blue (similar to sky or powder blue) and a shade of silver (not sure yet what shade…but thinking darker like grey?)

      (2) two shades of purple (light and dark), yellow, and silver

      I’m really partial to Carolina blue, but I also like palettes that have both warm and cool colors, hence yellow instead of blue in the second scheme.

      Is an inspiration board possible for one or both of these color palettes? Thanks so much in advance! I love this blog and have been reading it non-stop since I got engaged.

      Simple but yet beautiful.

    •  It's like the mothership calling him home. #littleboywindowshopping #calvins3rdyear  These three are why I'm now a morning person. Starting each day with smiles and kisses from these boys is what fuels me for the day. And coffee. Lots and lots of coffee  #thefredrickboys
       You've had quite a milestone month from 7-8 months. You're scooting (with some speed), crawling, sitting up on your own, and sleeping through the night (with one feeding around 4:30-5) pretty consistently. You totally want to mix it up with your brothers -- sometimes I think you are trying to jump out of my lap to get to them. You and Charlie have the sweetest relationship and you and Cal are best bros. They are both so loving towards you and patient when you pull their hair or grab the toy they have. I wish they were that patient with each other  They both watch out for you, retrieve things you drop, laugh when you're doing silly things like shaking your head like crazy, and are always looking for you. You're eating solids three times a day, still love to nurse, still have no teeth, are constantly babbling (dadadada is common), and are amazingly strong. You are 21.5 lbs (75th %) and are 90th % for height. And you still don't like me out of your sight -- all the heart eyes for momma and I love it. You're quite a flirt with everyone though but aren't loving when men get too close or talk to you too much. Except for daddy -- you're a big fan of him. You went from being my hardest baby to my easiest of the three right now. Thanks for the reprieve. Your happiness is infectious and each dimpled smile you give brightens everyone's day. Happy 8 months buddy. Love you times a million. #quincysmonthbymonth  I know someday you won't want to hold my hand anymore, but I sure do hope that day is still very far away. Like 10-15 years maybe?  #battlefieldmotherhood
