For as long as I can remember, I have gravitated toward Scandinavian design. Seeing images of homes that had that clean aesthetic made me want to transform my entire house into a peaceful and airy retreat. It's easy to believe that Scandinavian design means you have to be a purest: black, white, and grey spaces with very little clutter and furniture. But that's not necessarily true. There are all kinds of amazing styles that can mix well with...

We had enough of our dated kitchen, so we decided to give it a full-on facelift, while staying on a budget. Follow along with our whole series: Lidy's Kitchen Makeover.
The last area we really needed to tackle in our kitchen makeover was the tiny mudroom entrance in the back of the kitchen. It was the black hole of the space where everything piled up and overflowed. We knew we wanted to keep it simple, while still having it feel a part of...
Sometimes I get a little overwhelmed by all the bright colors around me. Maybe I'm getting old. Or maybe it's the onset of fall and cooler weather.

Read on to see how I did it.
I channeled a more minimalist, cool style to decorate our dining...
This August we're devoting each week of the month to a different decor style or theme. This week, we're all about the mid-century modern (MCM) style. The clean lines, geometric shapes, and natural woods and metals make this style iconic and evergreen. MCM treasures are widely sought-after and coveted by collectors, making it difficult and pricey to get your hands on the real deal.
The good news is you can achieve a MCM look in your home...
It's no secret that I love my bedroom. We went to great lengths to make it a special place, with vaulted ceilings, a statement-making headboard, and an eye-catching chandelier. Investing in big things certainly pays off, but to create a cohesive room, you need all the elements to go together, right down to the bedside tables. Your bedside space can make all the difference in a room. It's a practical, necessary piece of furniture, that can be anything but ordinary. From vintage chairs to a stack of books, you can form and style them any way you please. And, that's just the beginning. It's how you dress up your nightstand that makes it really interesting.
Today, we partnered with Sauder to talk about how to style a bedside table. Whether you're using an old stool or a tree stump, there are a few things to consider to make sure your nightstand is working the way you want it to.
Everybody loves to have a pretty centerpiece on the table, but who has the time to create a whole new centerpiece for every single season and every single holiday?

Read on to check out the surprisingly chic final product.
Everyone should have a credenza, buffet, or side table somewhere that they can style differently throughout the year. It's great to have a space that is basically just sitting there, waiting for you to try out different styles on it. Think of it like a painter's sketchbook; a place to explore design ideas that you might later develop more fully throughout your house.
This year, we were excited to participate in Sauder's "Put Together" Design Challenge this spring, because few things are as fun as dressing up a piece of furniture and making it your own. Read along to find out my three steps for styling a credenza.
