My office, before I turn it into a nursery.
Since the last update on my breakfast nook makeover, I’ve made a bunch of progress! Fairly subtle progress, but it was stuff that needed to get done before the project is finished. I did some painting, picked out fabric for the cushions, and found a new shade for the light. Oh, and re-styled the shelves […]
Good news: I’ve made more progress on my breakfast nook makeover! Per my inspiration, I knew that I wanted a little gallery wall of three black-framed pieces. But I didn’t quite know what kind of art I wanted. Original art is usually pretty expensive, and although there are great sites selling affordable prints, I’m impatient, […]
Lately I’ve been doing a lot of house tweaking, by which I mean relatively small home improvement projects that I can finish in a weekend, or even just a few minutes.

This weekend I decided that along with spring cleaning my plants, I should do some cleaning of the rest of my house. But do you know what’s more fun than cleaning? Anything. Re-styling your shelves! And that’s how I ended up giving my kitchen open shelves a little spring refresh.
The right size and color rug, plus a few more tweaks, made all the difference for our navy blue industrial/mid-century dining room.
