It's amazing what a basket can do do capture the clutter. I love the TJ Maxx mirror on the counter that I scored for 8.00...

They decorate with what they like and make it all work together. Though they have 7 children, they don't sacrifice style. Their kids rooms are so beautifully put together. High end pieces, secondhand furniture, flea market finds and mainstream store purchases all reside together creating the perfect balance.

I've been practicing some deconstructive behavior lately...
This lamp shade was formerly covered in a shiny, satiny, cream colored fabric with lots of fringe. I once loved that shade. Until recently, when I began to notice just how gaudy it really was! Funny how your style evolves over time.
Have a good day-Don't be afraid to tear something up!

When we first moved in, the multi-colored brick on the fireplace was covered with panelling. To expose the stone, we pulled the panels down and I painted the entire surface white.

Whenever I go to Anthropologie I fall in love with all the colorful decor. My house is quite pale and I lean towards a lot of white in my decor. But, I always leave Anthropologie with a few colorful items I can disperse throughout the house. So, I bought some monogram card sets with our last initial on them. They are beautiful in person and the board they are made from is heavy duty stuff. The original price was 16.00 a box and they are now on clearance for 3.95! I'll probably frame one and hang it in the kitchen.
Nugget wanted to get in on the action...I also got a magenta hair bow for her which was also on clearance. You might be able to spy it in some of the earlier table shots.
