Sneak Peek: A Big Girl Room for B

My sister just bought a house and I couldn't be more excited for her and her sweet little family! Previously, all three of their girls were sharing a bedroom, so Bridget is pretty pumped about having her own space! She's only 4, but since kids grow up so fast it was important to choose a style that can grow with her.  When selecting a wall color, we went with something that was neutral enough to carry through and use in the other bedrooms as well. This consistency, even with different accents, will go a long way to provide a cohesive look throughout the home. 

So... here's the sneak peak! I love the cheeriness--I think it matches B's personality perfectly!

Sneak Peek: Eclectic Farmhouse Kitchen Design Board

A recent client was all about the DIY so I was excited to put together a kitchen design that really showcased her (and her hubby's!) renovation skills. These DIY projects feature tutorials from some other awesome bloggers and the links can be found below. 

DIY Sources:

Drop Cloth Curtains -- These curtains amazing! They don't require any sewing and they are a huge bargain as they are made with inexpensive drop cloths. If you are aiming for a less-rustic look, you could quickly hem the edges!

Subway Tile Backsplash -- The images in this tutorial are stunning and I love how the dark grout contrasts so beautifully with the white tile. 

Butcher Block Counters -- Learn how to make and maintain these gorgeous counters! The warm wood against the white cupboards is the perfect balance of crisp and cozy.

Coffee Cup Holder -- Keep your mugs within easy reach with this pallet inspired piece. 

Jute Placemats -- The only items you will need to make these Pottery Barn inspired jute placemats are 3/8" jute and a hot glue gun. This is the perfect project to complete in an afternoon and then use for a dinner party!

Dresser turned Kitchen Island -- What a genius idea this island is! Just hit up your local thrift store or check craigslist and then turn a forlorn dresser into a beauty like this one!
Here is another great example of this idea.
*Note: I changed the color of the piece shown on the board using photoshop in order to match the client's design and color scheme. 

Husky Farmhouse Table -- Here is a great tutorial for a table nearly identical to the one pictured.
