STYLISH PATIO UMBRELLAS


In Friday's post I mentioned that I'm getting the patio all ready for Summer.  I've been thinking about adding one more seating area, and yesterday ordered 2 chaise lounges to put in the front corner of the patio that is not covered.  Many times on cooler days it's nice to sit in the warmth of the sun, but I plan to use my black and white striped patio umbrella between the two chairs if we'd like to add some shade during the hot Summer months.  We've had the hanging chair in that spot off and on but it's really better out of the sun and I think the chaises will be more comfortable and accommodating.

We're starting our third Summer with our new patio, and it's times to freshen a few things up.  I'll be working on that this next week, but here's a sneak peek just for you all of what's coming!

TAKEAWAYS FROM THE OKC SYMPHONY DESIGNER SHOWHOUSE


A few days ago I toured our local Designer Show House that benefits the OKC Orchestra League.  The house was originally custom built in 1994 and is almost 6,500 square feet.  I didn't photograph every space.  It was all pretty, but much of it was not the style or colors that I think you all would enjoy seeing here.  Today I'm focusing on sharing specific ideas, features, or accessories that caught my eye.

I honestly can't believe this...  I recently posted about my "new" Tobacco Leaf lamps and shared some other TL finds with you.  Well... look what showed up on my local Facebook Marketplace this week!  Eeeek!!  This pattern is called "Imperial Leaf" and is a similar (more affordable) version of the more expensive Tobacco Leaf.  I found some pieces here if you'd like to start collecting a few yourself.  You can bet I'm planning a summer tablescape with these soon!

MY FAVORITE COLORFUL ONE ROOM CHALLENGE REVEALS


It's been a full week since the reveal and I think I've recovered from my daughter's room makeover for the One Room Challenge.  Thank you so much for all of your feedback and kind comments!  I enjoyed browsing through all of the other 200+ reveals over the past week, and chose some of my favorite spaces to share where color was the star.

Some are bright and cheery, some are rich and moody, some have bursts of color sprinkled in that make the room.  There are many, many beautiful rooms that I didn't include, I was just focused on eye-catching color in this post.  Be sure to check out the full list of reveals!

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE- TEEN GIRL'S BEDROOM REVEAL


Hello everyone, Welcome!  I'm so glad you found yourself here today for the reveal of my daughter's Teen Girl's Bedroom Reveal!  If you're new here I'm Jennifer and I have no special title or training other than I like to decorate my home and share it with all of you!  You'll quickly see that I love bold color, mixed and matched patterns, and a mix of new, DIY, and vintage/secondhand items.  People occasionally ask me how I label my style, and honestly I have no idea!  If it catches my eye, it comes home with me and we make it work.  I'm excited to share my latest project with you today!

I'd like to give a huge thank you to Linda, the creator of the One Room Challenge, for all she's done to organize and oversee this challenge.  This is always the best opportunity to tackle a project, get things done, and Linda is a fantastic cheerleader throughout the process!

For the past 6 weeks (literally, I decided to join the challenge the night before it started 6 weeks ago!) we've worked to transform my daughter's bedroom from a little girl's bold, colorful space to a more grown up room that still has color but is a bit more refined. 

If you need to catch up on the process of how we got to this point, check in here-



She wanted to tone down the color from her previous room, but requested that we use the same kelly green that I favor in the rest of our house, a desk, and wood tones.  I requested that we keep the black and white striped wall.  We DID tone down the range of colors from her previous room, but that doesn't mean we have a lack of color and pattern!

pink door, black and white striped wall, green upholstered headboard, wall sconces, vintage bamboo nightstands, black and white crosses rug, crane and canopy linden duvet, monogrammed pillows, large scale floral pillow

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE- GIRL'S BEDROOM- FINAL DETAILS AND SNEAK PEEKS {WEEK 5}


I can't believe I'm typing that it's Week 5 of the One Room Challenge, how in the world has time gone by this fast?  I honestly didn't think I'd have that much to do for this project, and I couldn't have been more wrong.  Everything has snowballed down to these last few days.  I have checked a few big things off of the list, though-
