We've been rocking the same gallery wall in the Curbly House dining room for nearly four years. It was full of treasured family photos, and although we loved it, we were ready to change things up a bit. To give the room a fresh feel, we got some help from Minted, using their personalized art styling service to find new images that we loved.

'Tis the season for going back to school, and that means all of you dorm dwellers will be back to putting off laundry (I know I do!) and carting it all to the laundry room at the last minute.

If you've ever sold your home, or if you're just obsessed with HGTV like I am, you understand the importance of staging your home before selling. Putting your home in the best light possible with proper staging can make a huge difference in the price you can potentially earn from your home. While the Property Brothers may come in and renovate much-needed areas for maximum resale value, you can still make small changes yourself to increase the potential price of your home through these 5 items you must stage before selling your home.
I have a secret infatuation with faux fur. I'm the gal who raids the remnant bin at the fabric store for any and all furry fabrics. What I'm saving them for, I don't know. They're just so fun!
