Mobiles have recently made a comeback, and I see them not just in children's rooms but in other areas of the home. Mobiles are a unique way to add color and decor to an empty area of a room or above a child's crib for something interesting to watch. This simple floral mobile is the perfect piece of decor to fill empty corners of a room or as a beautiful piece of decor for a little girl's room.
Whether your kids share a room because they want to, or because there's no other option, it can be overwhelming finding ways for siblings to peacefully cohabit. Hopefully these amazing kids rooms can give you (and your kiddos) a little inspiration, and proof that sharing a room is fun and also totally doable, no matter the size of the space!
I love a good before-and-after, don't you? There's so much satisfaction in taking a sad roadside find or cheap garage sale rescue and totally transforming it into something new and different. We've rounded up some of our favorite furniture makeovers to inspire you to either start that upholstery project, get out the spray paint, or hit up this weekend's local yard sale scene. From dressers to dining tables, here are some of our favorite furniture makeovers.
I've wanted to upgrade my nightstands for a long time. I love the raised pattern on the drawer fronts, but the pale blue doesn't work well with the existing colors in the room. So I decided to give them a couple of coats of white chalk paint and add some leather pulls to lend a more sophisticated vibe. Click through to check out the final look, as well as a tutorial.
I love a quick art project! As I was preparing to (finally) hang some art on my walls, I was thinking of ways to keep my costs low and make my own wall art and the answer was as simple as making this paint scrape art with a few colors that matched the scheme of my home. Within 5 minutes, I had a colorful piece of art that I love.
Before I bought this nightstand, I had never stepped foot in an IKEA (gasp!). It wasn't for lack of wanting to, I just never had the opportunity before. As a former small-town gal, I haven't lived within driving distance of an IKEA up until I moved to the big city (more specifically, the Twin Cities) about a year and a half ago. Since moving, I've been putting off a trip to the IKEA because I know myself too well. I know that I love cute home decor, and I knew that I'd want to take everything in that store home with me. Impulsive purchasing aside, I needed a new nightstand. Let me tell you two things: #1. IKEA is awesome (and massive and a bit confusing at first - but they have Swedish Fish which totally made up for me getting lost), and #2. I love this IKEA Tarva nightstand because it is so hackable.
Living in a rental is not my ideal situation, but I’ve learned to make the best of the space that I have and still make the customizations that I want. One of the best ways to customize a space is with a fun accent wall, and for renters who cannot paint or apply wallpaper, removable wallpaper is king! I wanted to create a completely customized accent wall without painting it, so instead, I created customized removable wallpaper using a form of solid-colored contact paper.
It's cold outside... well, at least it is in most of the country. If you live in one of those places where the weather is 80 degrees all year you might want to skip this post. Better yet, read it so you can survive when the weather drops to 65 degrees.
We kid, warm weather dwellers. Believe me, all of us want to be you right now (and all year long). My own bitterness probably comes from having to avoid frost bite just going to get my mail everyday. Okay, that was a little dramatic. Seriously though, those of us who live in cold weather environments know the challenge of staying cozy without having to pay astronomical bills in the winter. Yes, there are a thousands ways you can renovate your home to help make your heating more efficient, but that doesn't help you right now. This post is about practical tips and small purchases that can help you stay warm today with out a renovation.

As I’ve grown older, I’ve learned to love burning candles at home. I now enjoy buying seasonal scents in pretty containers, and I’ve learned to love making my own candles. With industrial-style accents becoming increasingly popular, I made a set of concrete soy candles with beautiful wood wicks using rose, one of my favorite scents.
I’m a pillow hoarder. If you find me scouring the pillow section, get me out of there! Nonetheless, I still manage to bring home new pillows and this time I updated a plain pillowcase from IKEA to create this fun DIY geometric gold glitter pillow with random triangle patterns.
There are points in my life where I stop and say to myself, Now I feel like a real adult. Like when I bought my first car, or when I took that car for its first oil change. Or when I opened a savings account, or purchased my first washer and dryer. Or like when I learned how to fold a fitted sheet properly.
Sometimes wall art just needs to be fun. To celebrate the little moments, I made this DIY graphic confetti art with the saying “Make Life a Party” and it’s sitting on my desk as a reminder to see the positive side of things. It’s really easy to make, and I’ll even share how to make your own confetti if you want something specific.
Greenery, the 2017 PANTONE color of the year, has had a polarizing effect so far. Some people love it, others hate it.

Not so long ago - four years, to be exact - we moved into the Curbly House with one room complete. It was Ayla's room, and it was dunzo, styled, and cozy because she was 3-years-old and going through the double-whammy transition of moving into a new house, and having a new baby brother (all in the span of 10 days!).
Her room was adorable and comfortable, and she clocked hours of magical play...
