Last year I had fun creating a gallery wall in my dining area and soon after added some photographs along the wall leading upstairs. I’m now realizing the wall needs some updates. I am getting some more recent photos printed, adding some new frames and framing some of Noah’s artwork. Yes, he’s my little artist.
If you have young kids, I’m sure your refrigerator looks something like ours…
So as much as I love displaying all of his art, I’m running out of room… Plus, why not be more creative and frame it in the house?
As long as there aren’t any 3D elements, you can use any frame that fits the height and width of the art. I suggest using a piece of double-stick tape to place the art onto the back of the frame to keep it in place.
I’m still working on my wall update (will share once it’s complete) but at least now Noah’s art brightened up our trip up the stairs.

I love those little personal touches at home that make your space yours. Simple things like fresh flowers or a favorite candle put a smile on my face and make my day a whole lot nicer. However, after a while the same set-up I create can get stale and it looses it’s spark. I think it’s the perfect time year to take a look at your favorite spaces and make a couple of changes to freshen up the look. It might be a new throw-pillow, fresh flowers in a vase you rarely use or you could just swap things around in different rooms.
I’ve made a few updates throughout my house and for today I thought I’d share my nightstand update. But first, here are some great finds if you’d like to spruce up your nightstand.
It only take a few minutes. I highly suggest removing everything you currently have on your nightstand and then adding the items you want one at a time. Here are the changes I made:
1. Swapped out the tray I was using for my jewelry and placed it on my nightstand.
2. Added a fresh lemon scented candle. This one in particular is Myer Lemon by Yankee Candle.
3. Moved a framed photo from my wedding to the other side of the nightstand onto the tray.
4. Filled a vase with my favorite flowers from my wonderful husband.
I find that my favorite part about home decor and fashion comes is in the details. You can dress up a space or an outfit and make it feel fresh and new with just that little extra something. Aren’t the details what you remember the most?

As we move into a new season full of rich colors, textures and ornate detail, I am reminded of my love of deep navy blue. It compliments most anyone and is a nice change from basic black yet still provides that slimming effect in terms of clothing. For jewelry, the stones may not be “navy” but that deep blue sparkle is exquisite. Here is a gathering of some amazing new pieces for your wardrobe, home and maybe kitchen counter.
