4 Unique Accent Wall Trends

If it feels as if it has been weeks since we've last chatted, it's because it has! I'm a one woman show over here and that means I'm being kept very busy with clients when I'm not being Mom and wife :) So for now I'm going to cut back a bit on how much you hear from me but don't worry, I'm always thinking of things I want to share with you all. So, remember last time I talked about the Fifth Wall? I can't stop dreaming about our upstairs bathroom and what I could do to that ceiling. I hope you found at least one thing to try! This time I want to talk about an Accent Wall. I have come across some really fun and unique products and styles that I just have to share. So hopefully you've got a wall in mind because you are going to want to do this next! And since everyone loves a list, here goes:

How To Create a Focal Point

Dear Sweet Friend, Can we talk about focal points today? I’d like to share why I think your home needs them. And not just your home, but every room in it. Let’s first have a quick lesson on what a focal point is and what it does. When you enter a room, typically the focal point is the item or area your eyes are drawn to. Maybe you enter the kitchen at a friends house and you can’t help but notice the amazing island they have with stools right in the middle. Quite different from the other friend who doesn’t have an island but an elaborate hood and stove combo instead.

6 Quick Ways To Bring The Outdoors In This Fall

I’ve actually been looking forward to the change in seasons this fall, because I absolutely LOVE sweatshirt weather.  Hands down, fall is my favorite time of year.  It’s full of football games, going back to school, new clothes, a refreshed spirit, a still-tanned face, pulling out the fall brown shoes, boots, leggings and cardigans, and getting as reprieve from the hot weather.  It’s also the time of year I start bringing in my front porch cushions, the hoses, trimming down my lilies, and generally preparing for cooler nights.  Even though all my flowers have stopped blooming, it doesn’t mean I’m ready to stop enjoying the outdoors yet!  There will be plenty of time for that once the snow comes.
