Some Updates in La Casa

While I stopped blogging over the past few months, we managed to update some of the furniture we were dying to update. It wasn't quick or a cheap update.
Keep in mind, when you are looking to update a room, only invest in the big stuff, sofas, beds, tables. Quick updates that can give a room a dramatic change of look is all cosmetic, that's where the styling comes in with throws, pillows, art, lamps, d├ęcor etc.
Keep the big ticket items Neutral, for us Gray is our new neutral.
 
Remember our old couch? Hence our first couch ever! We got it at this cool outlet in Texarkana 2010.  T'was lovely, and comfy, but we wanted something more neutral and a little more modern.

We also wanted a couch with a chaise...took us 1 year to finally find the perfect piece that fit our budget.
We absolutely love this piece! We got it at the furniture store where Aaron used to work (got it with his discount, days before his last day.)
The living room isn't decorated right now, keeping it clean trying to decide how I am going to tackle this baby.

Also here is our old dining table and chairs.
 So far, we got new chairs. I am cooking up a project on how to re do the table, I love the size and the shape. This is one is a keeper.

I am still working on the dining room, I am currently, or have been looking for art for years now, I am so picky, so picky that I still haven't bought anything for my walls, that's why they're all naked.
 
I love these chairs though, I originally planned on white seat covers ( IKEA) , but decided the gray was more kid friendly, plus it transitions well from the living room unto the dining room. The black chairs ( IKEA) I fell in love with before I chose the chairs with covers, they are so unique! I love the Euro vibe it gives the room. Eclectic? I think yes!

This is what the dining room will eventually wear!

Organization: J'Adore Jewelery



Hello again!!!

I know...I know... I have completely neglected all of my friends! Please forgive, there are so many things that have been going on, it's no excuse to just leave you out of the blue. I was promoted at work, and a crazy little Toddler, some health issues, had a little scare last month. I guess you can say, life got in the way of my blogging. I love to blog, and to share all of my projects, having people stop by to admire my work, truly makes me love and motivates me to keep doing it. I truly appreciate all of the support I receive from everyone that follows. Well, that being said, now that I have come back again, for the third time (embarrassing) I have some projects I would like to share with you.  


Now that spring is the air...literally! I have been itching to compliment my makeup station, the one I shared a while back? with my new Jewelry Station.

Lately I have been obsessed with Acrylic organizers, why not?  Obsession Alert! They're fun and chic and see through (what better way to display treasures?) girly, glamarous and timeless! I love them!


See what I mean?

Aren't these bowls lovely? Got em at Anthropologie, and the fish too!

I love jewelry, and honestly I used to collect and never wear. Why? Because I never used to see it. Now that it's on display, I know what I have, and I wear what I want.

I cannot get enough of the pull out drawers!

I love how colorful it looks. So cheeky!

Doesn't it compliment the makeup just fabulous?

Talk about Beauty Stations, this one is my absolute favorite!
