Kitchen Lighting



I've told you a million times how important lighting is and how it changes the feel of a space! Case in point, my kitchen! The builder lights had to go! They were small, an eyesore, and doing nothing for the space, but casting an ugly amber glare on everything! 


And, voila'! I switched them out for new Allen + Roth polished nickel mini pendant lights from Lowes! They were running a 20% off sale so they were $38 a piece! Now that, you can't beat! 




Next up, we are switching out the light above the kitchen table! It's even worse than the pendants were! Details once I make a decision!

Great Finds {PBTEEN}


I hope you're still reading after you saw the title and aren't rolling your eyes thinking I'm nuts for posting about a Teen store! Sometimes the best treasures are found where you least expect them. Case in point, PB Teen this time! I happened to find some pieces that are for anyone, not just a moody, sassy teenager! 



The bedding selection is pretty great right now! I'm eyeing several shams for our guest bedroom! And, have fun with your bedding, mix it up! Don't buy the 20 piece matching set EVER! I'm thinking the white shams with green dot edging mixed with the black and white ring sham would look dynamite! 

How about that Kelly green paint btw? Love! 


Such a glamorous chandelier and a great price point at only $129! 



Gold and polka dots, yes please! Too bad none of their sheets come in king size! 


Searching for a neutral rug? This kilim rug is just what you need! 

Now was I right? Are you smitten with any of these finds?

Project Royal Update


Remember this nursery and bathroom I told you about? Well, it's almost complete and I have a few updates for you. If you follow me on Instagram then you've seen a few of these shots already and can see how adorable the space is looking. I must say that I'm loving the gray and purple hues.  





As you can see there are some missing details! Crib skirt has since been installed and we are just waiting on a few small items to arrive before the final reveal! Stay tuned!

Friday Mood Board




Happy Friday everyone! I'm in such a spring mode right now that I decided to come up with this flirty and fresh mood board for a girl's bedroom and bathroom! The best part is that all of these items are from the H&M home line. I'm obsessed with their clothes so why not jump on the rest of what they offer! Check out some of the prices and you'll see what I mean! I mean, how cute is that star throw blanket and I'm dying over the pillow! Any little girl or tween would love a room decked out in this decor!

Have any of you shopped the home line? I'm curious to know if you have and what kind of quality the products are. I'm thinking they are along the lines of IKEA probably! Please share if you have experience them before! I'd love your feedback!

Meet Elyse



This is the new sophisticated look for kid's spaces. Goodbye Bubblegum and Fuchsia! Hello Coral! 


This new Elyse bedding collection at PB Kids is so darling! It's a vintage Indian print combined with paisley and elephants. Lock up your wallet when browsing because you will be so tempted! 

I'm even contemplating a few pieces for Ava's big girl room. I originally only purchased one set of sheets, so a second set is necessary! Totally justifiable! 

Her walls are painted a pale aqua, so the coral will be a nice switch from her existing bubblegum,  polka dot sheet set! 

And, how cute is this side table?


Love the whitewashed finish! 

I browsed around and also found a few stunning beds that are new! Several unexpected pieces that I love! They look more like a RH piece than PB Kids. 

What do you think of the new bedding? Are you a fan or coral in a kid's space?
