• {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.

I was featured on @loyal_hana blog as part of their motherhood series, so if you want to give it a read and hear about my typical (hot mess) day or how I (don't) balance work and mothering head to their profile to find the link to their site. I pretty much live in their nursing-friendly clothes and was honored to be featured. 3. Charlie took this picture (and basically directed me for the shot) and it makes me really really happy   Putting the finishing touches on the boys' bedroom and had to stop to admire the magic that the morning light and their @babyjives mobile was making. ✨☁️⭐️❤️✨#charlieandcalsroomredo
       Can a person be your happy place? Because I'm pretty certain that Quincy is mine ☺️✨ #quincyrhys #thatdimpletho  This week was a rough one. I feel like I say that every week but this one really was. Today alone had me at my breaking point. All three of my kids seemed hell bent on driving me crazy. Quincy literally wouldn't let me put him down or leave the room without a major scream-cry fest. He rode around on the fuss bus allllll day. Tropical storm Calvin left destruction in his wake everywhere he went (if you follow me on snap/stories you got a little sampling but that was nowhere near the extent of it). At one point I went into a room away from my kids and sat in a chair and cried. Within three minutes one of them found me (of course) gave me a hug, and we were all better (except Calvin -- I think this is his permanent state ). This photo is my version of thinking happy thoughts. Bougainvillea vibes ✌️️✨
