lately, i’ve been researching painted floors and thought i would share with you a few that i have particularly fell in love with. as we house hunt and see old wooden floors throughout many of the homes, i can’t help but think about stenciling on them, even if in just one small room like the laundry area. my grandmother painted her wood floors a beautiful white and it brings such a clean, sweet, country feel to her little cottage. if you’re interested in learning more about how to go about painting wood floors, be sure to check out this tutorial by elle decor as well as this one over on apartment therapy.

i’m pretty sure the makers over at urban + forest designed everything in their shop with me in mind. i’ve always loved the use of birch in home decor- it can give any space a very clean, modern and rustic look all at the same time. i’m really fond of the irregular shapes in the woodcuts and soft shades of white and grey they have. head on over to urban + forest to see more.

a new home, a new look

new home inspiration board

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13

it’s always fun to start with a blank slate. with our recent move to a new home, i’ve been so excited to start deciding which direction i’ll be taking the new digs. this is just a little inspiration board i’ve been building over on pinterest, and hope to acquire a few of these lovelies over the next few months. my vision is to use a lot of neutral, solid colors (mainly white) and mix and match farmhouse simplicity with rustic cabin charm. can’t wait to start sharing some tidbits with you! for now though, i’m off to work on all these boxes..

i’ve been using spoonflower to get custom fabric printed for a long time now, so i was thrilled to hear about their launch of custom wallpaper and wall decals this week.

custom wallpaper from spoonflower

now we crafsters, designers and do-it-yourselfers can design our own wallpaper for any space, any time. and if you’re not a designer, you can still browse spoonflower’s thousands of designs made by independent artists. spoonflower’s wallpaper is also removable and eco friendly, which makes it perfect for renters (or anyone who just likes to change things up frequently)!

with an eye toward environmentally conscious consumers and moms looking to decorate nurseries and kids’ rooms, spoonflower has printed their wallpaper on PVC-free paper using durable, eco-friendly inks, so you can feel safe about using it in nurseries and kids’ rooms.

doe a deer

July 30, 2012

Posted by in home decor

one of the things i love most about decorating is mixing styles. i love to mix really old pieces with new ones and especially like throwing in some rustic touches on top of it all. whether it’s a cabin-in-the-woods feel or a more aztec vibe you’re going for, i think rustic pieces can really give your space extra depth.

faux mounted deer

column one: 1 | 2 | 3  column two: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

one way to accomplish this look would be with this modern twist on the ol’ mounted deer head- faux taxidermy. it can give your space a modern-yet-rustic look- not to mention it’s a much kinder way to decorate. above are some of my favorites!
