I’m just a girl, sitting in front of her fabric library in her pink taffeta ballgown skirt wondering what design projects I will be tackling first! For me fabric selection is one of the first steps I take with clients. When a client says they have no idea what they want picking out fabrics is a wonderful jumping off point. lt’s really helpful meeting with clients and seeing what they are drawn to and what they dislike. How brave are they willing to go color wise? Do they lean traditional or modern? Do they like stripes? Let me tell so many times husbands actually hate stripes. It’s all so telling and so much more than just fabrics!
The lovely @rowans_rainbow just showed me this pic they took of my pillow after it arrived.. (the striped one in front)...it totally belongs in their home! Makes me so happy to see my pillows find their forever homes! 🌈FYI free shipping to anyone in the USA and dozens of designs to choose from.. link in my bio 👇💋@kathys_colorfulbohopillows
Details of the mural install with @conner_huber. I love the punch a few stripes can add, and especially love the way they wrapped around the window. It’s in the details friends. The colorful, wonderful details. Colors are top to bottom: (All by @behrpaint) Beacon Blue Brilliant Blue Turmeric Cupcake Pink Tiki torch Top tomato Splendor Gold
Spinning my wheels on this weeks @oneroomchallenge waiting for contractors, so I’ve decided to take care of all the interior pieces. This little guy has been sitting in my garage for a year after thrifting it with no purpose in mind. It’s going to be the perfect piece for my dad’s little entry. This refresh made possible with @anniesloanhome’s new black: Athenian black. Add some white, and a few pieces of copper and you’ve got this bad boy!! I’ve got a highlight reel with my whole process in my profile!
All my latest vintage stamp paintings are now in my creatingtaryn Etsy shop! £35 each including FREE worldwide shipping AND if you buy 2 you get them for £55 and for 3 you get them all for £75!! These will only ever be originals, never prints and only ever in my Etsy shop. (Unless I manage to set up a website of course!!)
Staircase to heaven! Animal prints are always my favorite and adding @wallpops to the staircase risers in our first house was one of my first projects!!! It’s a little unexpected pop that everyone loved to be surprised by! The decals are perfect for renters and home owners a like! I know everyone is always concerned with making design decisions and having it effect re-sale value, but I must say when we sold everyone loved all of my little touches! We got multiple full price offers after one open house and sold within a couple of days! 📸 @erinkestenbaum

What do you do? We have two large peices of furniture which have been handed down to us which we like however take up space in separate rooms and are not really needed...as they have been handed down that hold a certain tie and pull on the old heart strings when i (Ewan) think about getting rid of them...but they also annoy me sitting in the rooms randomly...😱😱😱. . . Have a fab day all 😁. . . #retrohauls#kitsch#kitschstyle#vintagehomedecor#myvintageabode#jhlynch#bohemianinterior#modernbohemian#bohemianstyle#dailydecordetail#styledupinterior#stylishhomevibes

Faith @faithkalson A huge THANK YOU to Jenasie @msvisciousdesign for cohosting last week! 😘 one of my own personal faves! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 #dailydecortags We’ve had guests for these past few days, 😁 and today we went on a family day trip. We visited an active Archeological dig site. 🧐 It's pretty special for several reasons, it’s dated back to the Bronze Age, and is the largest city uncovered in the whole region thus far. 😲 Was home to several thousands of people, likely farmers as there are flatlands, and nearby freshwater sources, and there is evidence of a temple, and animal sacrifices. 🤭 It’s original name is unknown, as the site predates script. ✍️ The site was originally discovered nearly 20 years ago, but covered up until it could be actively excavated. It’s been active for the past several years, and the significant size of the site has become apparent. This week the public was invited to tour, and actively help with the excavations ourselves. 💪🏽🤝 We found some pieces of ancient pottery! 😃
I decided to treat myself today with a new plant & holder from the jungle of dreams @greendepotbunbury 🌿 I adore adding more snippets of greenery to our home - just call me the crazy plant lady 😉 (As I have officially kept some of my indoor plants alive for over 2 years I’m clearly now an expert!! 💁🏽♀️)
I saw this image of @graywinteriors on @wsj online (swanky Halloween decor) and instantly started following her! She has a beautiful classic style with a pop of whim! Definitely a style that I appreciate and love. Check her out!!! #hauteeclectic#mycollecteddecor

I’m not sure what it means that four rooms in my house now have taped walls 🤷🏻♀️😂 I guess it’s kind of addicting! And definitely the fastest, cheapest way to fake wallpaper in a rental 😉 . . I’m so excited to share my latest tape magic with you in the final reveal of the #oneroomchallenge ! Have you checked out all the amazing designers participating in this event?! So much inspiration to peruse 🙌 Hop over to @oneroomchallenge to see more!
When pumpkins are less than $5 I tend to go a little crazy! Any trip into @traderjoes means at least one pumpkin is coming home with me! We have craved some and also painted a good amount! My favorites are these leopard or buffalo check beauties! Make sure you spray them with a protective clear coat so that rain doesn’t wash your artwork as well! Details for how to tackle the leopard print on the blog! Just search for leopard pumpkin or head to the DIY library!
I saw this on @caradiseblog feed and loved the orange accent with the black and gray.. I’m not always very good at putting together complimentary colors myself and so I look to others pics for inspiration. I feel like doing an orange, black and gray pillow now!
From @hardcastletowers After looking at her colorful, eclectic feed I think my pillows would look so awesome in her home! Wish I could gift millions of pillows people I think would love them!! But alias I can’t afford that 💋
After a month of procrastinating, I finally finished this under bar area. (What is this called?) When I saw the kitchen of @emmaredvelvet with this @pottokprints paper, I knew I wanted the same look. But when I saw the price.... I decided to make my own version. They say imitation is the best form of flattery, right? One day I plan on ordering the real thing but until then I will settle for my kid’s hands and a @sharpie marker. Scroll to see my inspiration and each of our fingers traced on the wall.
It’s not quite Friday yet, not even hump day but we cannot contain ourselves until then...we just have to post this #followfriday now! Actually, we are calling it: who we follow...Wednesday. Our paths crossed with @pamelajbates in our #instadreamcamp Mastermind with @ericareitman a few months ago, and she has been a breath of fresh air! Between her early morning walks in the woods (complete with a great song) with her faithful pup AND her love of color and painting, it was a a connection made in Instagram-land...and the best part? She’s only 40 minutes away. She had us completely hooked when she worked on a custom art piece accompanied by David Bowie’s “starman”...and if you know Kim? That’s the real way to her heart ❤️ ❤️❤️ Aside from all of that, she’s a talented artist, bringing color and a new perspective to her paintings with the goal to fill souls and walls with joy. So, you HAVE to know how delighted we were to know that she’s giving us custom pieces of art for this weekends workshop!!!! Now, YOU can fill YOUR walls with joy!!! These wonderful, color-filled works of art will be yours when you sign up for our workshop this Sunday. Why? Because you love Color, Pattern, and want to get an @pamelajbates original piece of art for yourself. #thatsimpeccable Link is in the profile! Limited spaces available. ☺️
LOVE AND MENTAL HEALTH . . “Love all the hurt, traumatized and abandoned parts of yourself. Honoring of all of you gives you wholeness a voice” . . My spiritual journey has taught me many amazing things and one of those was the BIG word: LOVE. I’m not even sure if I knew love before I started walking through this path. Why do I say I didn’t know love before? lacked of self esteem and lacking self esteem didn’t allow me to love others or to love the right way or to let love come and stay in my life. Believe it or not LOVE and MENTAL HEALTH go together hand by hand. “I talk about Love because I talk about mental health and the two are inherently connected. But mental stability isn’t the result of interpersonal love; it’s the prerequisite. We have to love ourselves before we love others. And loving ourselves is about mental health. Our ability to maintain our own emotional wellbeing is directly tied to our ability to interact with others, and if we do a poor job of self-regulating, we will always try to draw this from other people. Which always leads to poor love. Good love is give, not take. And “give” requires mental and emotional wherewithal going in.” . . Depression and Anxiety are rooted in my family. Both are two big monsters that we don’t want to face, unfortunately I have been face to face with both. “Depression and anxiety are two of the most common mental health disorders worldwide. Could love have any impact on these disorders? Attachment therapy and interpersonal therapy are often used to treat depression – these therapy methods focus on interpersonal relationships as a way to improve depression.“ The both of them are tied together, Both Self Love and Loving relationships are absolutely important to have a balanced life and healthy wellbeing. One of the first books that I came across while in my spiritual journey was: “The Autobiography of a Yogui by Paramahamsa Yogananda” he was my guide and guru through all my
Did you know that I actually wrote a blog post for this table? And did you know it’s on the blog? 😀 Well just incase you didn’t, it’s there, in my links in the bio. Also this area looks nothing like this atm, imagine all kinds of purple and green tulle fabrics 🧙♀️ . . Anyway, let’s move on. I spontaneously threw out a discount code for the homeware section in my shop last night (panicking I don’t have enough space to house the news) - in other words, be quick and get 20% off with the discount code LETITGO ❄️ . . Ok right, going to go back to the scissors! Hang in there I tell myself. Have a fantastic evening friends 🌼🌈🥰👻💗
