BATHROOM UNDER SINK CABINET, DRAWER, AND LINEN CLOSET ORGANIZATION


Maybe even more than New Year's, I think the start of a new school year is a great opportunity to get things back in shape and organized around the house.  I've been working space by space to do just that!  For friends local to Oklahoma, did you know that our very first The Container Store in our great state just opened last week?  Woo hoo!  They were kind enough to partner with me on a project to celebrate the opening of our new store, and we decided that the kids' bathroom cabinets were long overdue some organization help (*This post may contain affiliate links, read my full disclosure policy here.).

DIY ABSTRACT ARTWORK- COLOR SPLASH DECOR BLOG HOP


I have some super fun colorful eye candy for you today!  Jewel from Jeweled Interiors put together this "Color Splash Decor Blog Hop" that 11 color-loving bloggers are participating in.  We've all come up with a colorful home project to share with you.  I tackled a project for my Powder Bath.  I've really not changed one thing in there since finishing it 2 1/2 years ago, which is probably a record for me!

NATIONAL MAKE YOUR BED DAY


Did you know it's National Make Your Bed Day?  In looking into the background, here's a little description I found... 

"This unofficial holiday with unknown origins encourages people to make and tidy up their beds in the mornings. Studies show that inculcating the habit of making beds every morning can increase productivity during the day and can make people happier. The idea is that the organization that goes into making beds can spill over to the tasks a person does during the rest of the day. The act also gives people some time before they start their day to meditate over about what they want to achieve during the day.  A clean and made up bed also helps people sleep faster and better." (source)

Hmm... It's a pretty convincing argument to be sure to make your bed every day, right?

SWEET SATURDAY #26


This kitchen reveal is such a dramatic before and after.  Sarah basically gutted the space, added a window and created a fantastic butler's pantry space off to the side.  The result is simply stunning!

WALL TO WALL FALL STYLE



Although I typically don't decorate for Fall until later in the month, I've been thinking about what kind of decorations that I wanted to do this year.  Last year I made a drastic shift from traditional Fall colors to using a mainly orange and pink combo, and I decided to continue that untraditional color palette again this year.  I'm excited to be a part of At Home Stores' "Wall to Wall Fall" campaign and show you some of the fun Fall accessories I found there this year.  After an hour or two of roaming the store and aisles and aisles of Fall decor (you can't make a quick trip to At Home, it's huge and there's SO many good things to see!), I had a cart full of versatile seasonal pieces to freshen up my Fall style. They challenged me to use what I chose in a variety of different rooms, so here's a look at what I came up with!

My "anchor" piece that I started with was this wheat wreath.  I knew I could use it lots of different ways, and while beautiful as is, I could add some embellishments to it at some point down the road if I want to change up the look.  For now I simply tied a bow and hung it over my Entry mirror with some pink and orange ribbon.

MEXICAN DINNER TABLESCAPE WITH BALLOON CACTUS CENTERPIECE



I hope you all enjoyed your holiday weekend!  My kids actually have an extra day off of school today so we're enjoying a slow morning before getting back to it. My birthday was last week, and per usual we had a big family dinner at my parents' house to celebrate.  My youngest sister went over the night before to decorate and set the cutest table that I wanted to share with you today.  My mom made Indian Tacos for dinner so Sarah created a Mexican themed tablescape with the most festive balloon cactus centerpiece!
