Trend Alert: Monochromatic Walls

Posted by Andie on August 17, 2018

If you want to change things a bit and spice up a room or two in your home, a great and simple way to do this is to go monochromatic when it comes to your walls.  Simply paint all of the trim (baseboards, crown molding, wainscoating) and the walls the exact same color, and BOOM- your room will pop!  It's really that easy!  I  I think it looks extra stunning when you use a dark paint color. t might sound kind of weird, but the proof is in the pudding!Check out the rooms below to see for yourself just how awesome this paint trend looks...

Trend Alert: No Upper Kitchen Cabinets!

Posted by Andie on August 15, 2018


If you find yourself keeping up with the latest interior design trends, you've no doubt noticed there is a major kitchen movement that seems to be sweeping the design world with full force: kitchens with NO UPPER CABINETS!!!  Say what??? That's right, folks. No upper cabinets!  Are you shaken to the very core??  This is basically taking the constant truth you we knew and understood about kitchen design and tossing it on it's head! 

So, is this revolutionary?  Or completely ridiculous??  If your jaw is still on the floor and you are trying to take it all in, stick with me.  People are really doing this!  They are opting for open shelving, windows, or simply backsplash or a blank wall where upper kitchen cabinets would have sat.  Thoughts?  Here are a few pro's and cons that I can see to no upper cabinets in a kitchen:

How To Get Dried Crayon Stains Out of Clothes

Posted by Andie on August 14, 2018

 

The other day I opened up my dryer to take out a load of freshly dried laundry, and to my horror, almost every single item of clothing was covered in dark red splotches.  I was shocked, and mad, and confused.  And I wanted to cry.  Turns out, one of my children left a red crayon in their pocket, and somehow it made it's way through the wash cycle, and stuck around to really show it's true colors (pun intended) in the dryer.  Not my best day.

I immediately threw the load in the washer again, hoping it was recent enough that the crayon stains would come out, but sadly, it didn't work.  It's never that easy, right?  I almost threw out the entire load of clothes because I didn't think there was any hope of saving them, but something inside me just couldn't do it.  They've been sitting in a laundry basket for a good month two months now, and I'm finally getting around to working on getting the stains out.  Here are a couple of different methods I've found that I'll be trying:

How To Enjoy Fresh Peaches All Year Round

Posted by Andie on August 12, 2018

This time of year is heaven on earth for me.  Sure, summer, and popsicles, and fireflies are awesome--- but the real stars in my book are fresh peaches!  I get a little bit addicted every August and I eat them with everything.  I'll never say no to a delicious peach by the slice, but I also love them in my oatmeal, over cereal, on a salad, on homemade pizza, in a smoothie, or over ice cream!  I usually eat at least a couple of peaches a day!  I live for them.

I'm not a huge fan of canned peaches.  I mean, they are mushy, and how can you really compare them to the real thing?  Once September ends I go into a small period of mourning, knowing it will be 10 months or so before I taste a really delicious, ripe peach again.  

You guys, the other day my friend BLEW MY MIND when she told me she blanches peaches every summer and freezes them so that she can enjoy fresh tasting peaches all year round.   WHATTTTT?????  I about died.  My life has been changed, and in the best way.  Here's the simple steps you can take to enjoy fresh peaches not just in the summer months, but all year round...

Gorgeous Wallpaper

Posted by Andie on August 6, 2018


One of my favorite ways to add style and color to a home is with wallpaper!  If you are reading this cringing, you've got to know that wallpaper has come a LONG way.  In fact, many wallpapers are actually removealbe now, which makes it nice if you are renting, or don't want to commit to something for the next twenty years.  I'm on the hunt for wallpaper for a couple rooms in my house, and these are some of my favorites that I've found so far.  This aint your grandma's wallpaper anymore!
