Coral and Green Living Room Decor (4 of 35)

MY GREAT ROOM IS DONE! I want to sit in there all day. Too bad that can't happen because no Mom on Earth has time for that, right!?! Decorating this room was seriously so much fun. I can't say that it's d.o.n.e. because I'm not that person. I love change, but it's done for a minute. Decorating with rustic touches is one of my favorite ways to add character to any room. In fact, it has been the foundation for our great … [Read more...]

Friends! The guest room is complete! After we reclaimed the room from the nursery, I started plans for an ultimate guest room that would leave our guests feeling spoiled, relaxed, and welcome. After that, we chose a color scheme, a rug, and decided on a wall mural idea.  I'm pretty passionate about giving guests a great experience that I even wrote a post about over 30 things a guest room needs!  Our guest room isn't … [Read more...]

A few days ago, I asked you to weigh in on your opinion about these cute art pieces for the guest room! My fave is “Put your feet up and stay awhile.” I think it defines the feeling of the room perfectly. I want my guests to come and have a place to relax. And since my motto is always go BIG or go home, I decided to paint it on the wall! So, I guess I’m screaming RELAX to them as they walk in the door!?! Is that an … [Read more...]

#1. Your house doesn’t have to win an award to be a home. Friends, life is practice, and according to Malcolm Gladwell, you need to practice something for 10,000 hours before you can be an expert in a certain field. So, can I say I’m a decorating expert? Probably not. But, I can definitely tell you that I love to decorate. I have been obsessed with making a house feel like a home since my first apartment in college 15 … [Read more...]

HomeGoods contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if I was interested in giving away some gift cards....ummm... OF COURSE!! I'm obsessed with HomeGoods, and my husband can attest to that. So, this post is sponsored by HomeGoods. All opinions are 100% mine. I was challenged to organize a room with products found at HomeGoods as part of their Organize in Style program.  My office was a disaster for the last four years. We … [Read more...]

This post is sponsored by 3M DIY just keepin’ it real folks. It was long past the time to lay our leaf wall from 2010 to rest. It fought a good fight, and it had a great run. The truth is, I never even used this room. My desk {which is on the opposite wall in this picture} was always full of clutter, and the the room was pretty much the “catch-all” for the entire house. It was time for a change for sure! I drew … [Read more...]

First of all, let me inform you from the get go, this post is going to be LOOOOOONG. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! Back when All Things Thrifty was an infant in early 2010, I painted this office and was the proudest person on the planet. I loved it. The leaf wall made me happy. In fact, the IKEA desk made me even happier. Three months later, I decided that I hated the desk on that wall because I couldn’t keep it clean … [Read more...]
