The Pretty in Pink Retro Entryway To Recreate At Home

 Hi Friends! Let's talk entryways today. 

Ours has been ruffling my feathers since we moved in two years ago. We started with a leaning mirror or two and I really just didn't love that it wasn't put together, cohesive or functional. Also, it lacked the pizazz I felt the spaces around it had so I got to work and started brainstorming ways to make the space fit our small awkward space and still pack a punch when it came to personality. 

First things first, the wallpaper! 

For me, an entryway needs to make a statement upon arrival so I tapped my friends at Limitless Walls to help me create a custom design for the space. We color matched my Clare paint colors Baby Soft and Rose Season to make the perfect statement with the groovy lines running up and down the wall. To say I'm obsessed with how it came out is an understatement.

Next, the storage and furniture! 

I've been wanting a sideboard for what seems like forever and this Castlery "Almo" sleek mid-century shape was the perfect fit for making this long empty fall feel more functional. AND it has so much storage. We also wanted to incorporate my sassy fringe mirror and pink rattan velvet chair for tone on tone color pops. I borrowed one of my Julian teal velvet ottomans from the living room and it looks perfect in-front of the mirror for a little spot for easy shoes on and off. 

We also needed a little extra storage at the narrowest part of our entry so we opted for a more compact shoe cabinet & hanging wall basket catch all (which is arguably one of my favorite details).

And Finally, the details!

The paint chip Annie Selke runner brings everything together and make all the colors pop. I'm obsessed and want to put it every where, would that be too much? We also snagged a smaller version for the doorway. 

Styling the sideboard and the shoe cabinet was of obviously the easiest of all the tasks and I can't get over how everything just came together with stuff I already had. 

Our Gantri Gio Task Light was subtle yet added a warm retro glow. I layered in some (borrowed from other rooms) leaning art because I'm indecisive and still haven't found the perfect fits for the area but secretly love these together. Plants, candles and bowls finished things off and I'm pretty close to saying we're finally done.

Now we just need to decide on a bold door color for the front door and perhaps I'll be settled enough to leave this area alone for awhile..

The Blue Velvet Chair You Didn't Know Your Space Needed

Whoa, it's been a hot second since I posted over here. But we're back and ready to talk about this lush velvety blue chair from Castlery. 

I'm gonna start by saying that it's BIG - I did not measure out where I had initially intended to place it and I was real nervous when it arrived and turned out to be massive. However, I found the perfect corner for it and it's really doing it for me with the pop of pink in the background. 

So yes, this is the sign you needed to snag yourself a comfy blue velvety soft chair for your digs.

How Cute Is This Small Pink and Orange Office Space With Chinoiserie Tropical Wallpaper

This small little office space has been through quite the evolution over the past year. From paint to wallpaper to furniture to art - I feel like it's constantly growing in 'finding it's rhythm', or at least it's me finally getting it together in some form or another. 

It feels settled I guess - not quite done but getting there. After all, it's a marathon not a sprint when it comes to putting together a home, especially with me. I definitely need a new light fixture and drapes for my next installment.

But alas, here we are with layers of texture and character making their way across the 200 square foot pink  room with tropical chinoiserie wallpaper and rust orange accents. I never in million years would have thought I would have any type of orange decor in my space, especially of the rust hue, but here we are.

 I simply love it. 

As for details, this room wears many hats - aside from being an office / studio it houses some of my clothes, accessories, office supplies, beauty products, camera & lighting equipment. So storage has been key to keeping things organized. I've loaded up vintage hat boxes, storage bins from Open Spaces, vintage wicker baskets and a bathroom etagere cut down in a cabinet to keeping everything in place (and out of sight).

The Affordable & Renter-Friendly Patio Makeover Idea You Can Re-Create At Home This Season

It's Patio Season! 

Last time you saw my outdoor space (here & here) I was just starting to add furniture and plants. This year  I wanted to make it a little more cozy and less sterile when it came to the outdoor wall. The off white, bare walls just weren't doing it for me and I was ready to give them a little love. So I, with some help from Command outdoor clips and hooks gave the space a much needed upgrade. While it's not perfect and I would love to go 'bigger' it's a nice step in the right direction. 

First, I ordered some faux ivy with fairy lights ($10!) to create a climbing ivy wall. 

The Affordable, Bright and Colorful Spring Refresh You Didn't Know Your Kitchen Needed This Season

Spring is in full swing and here come all the decor updates to follow. 

For me, I've been dying to makeover my kitchen and dining area with new barstools since we moved in. The old yellow ones from our previous apartment were way too short and honestly a little dated so I've spent the last year trying to figure out what I REALLY wanted to glam up the area with. Initially I wanted cognac leather stools but quickly changed my mind after I discovered these  Sigfred Velvet Emerald Barstools from InMod (gifted). 

Try These Six Foolproof & Affordable Ways To Add Color To Your Home This Season

The First Day Of Spring Is Today! 

I love spring - it's full of hope, color and a sense of starting new. I've found myself excited watching tiny shoots of green pop up here and there in the yard over that last couple of weeks. Maybe it's because I'm seeing everything come back to life or perhaps I just really need some color after the last few months of brown and grey. Either way, I welcome it. 

That said, what greater time than now to refresh your space with pops of color. 


1. Paint 
Paint is always a good idea. Whether it's a full room overhaul, an accent wall or piece of furniture paint is the easiest way to add a splash of color to you place. 


2. Plants & Planters 
Ok, so this is one of the easiest ways to add color to your home. Yep, you can also opt for faux plants if you have a black thumb. I also love scoring colorful planters to pop against the lush greens. How perfect is this orange and green combo.

3. Throw Pillows 
Another quick and easy color pop is throw pillows! You can move them around on a whim and change them out with every season.

4. Removable Wallpaper 
One of my personal faves, removable wallpaper. You can basically put it anywhere your little heart desires. Me? I love it on the fridge, as an accent wall, and pops of detail on shelves and unexpected spots.

5. Furniture 
Colorful accent furniture is another fun way to add color without really committing. Even better if you paint it yourself.

6. Accent Decor 
Mirrors technically aren't furniture, they're accessories so they get their own bullet point. Same with colorful art pieces and textured wall hangings.

The mirrors in our house are having a moment 

This one actually came first and gave me the kahunas to create the fringe mirror because I was SO proud with how beautiful it turned out.

Backstory: this Ikea Grundtal mirror had been moving room to room for the last year and getting shoved into hiding places so it wouldn't be seen.

Well, I finally did it! 

After about a year of wanting to ditch my Ikea Mongstad floor length mirror in favor of something new  I opted to give it a whole new life and the transformation it deserved. 

Initially my plan was to cover it's dated white exterior with a fun and quirky wallpaper to liven up my boring entryway but as time went on I kept leaning towards texture and drama. Fringe kept popping in my head from time to time but I was honestly too chicken to take the plunge.
