thumbnail-3

I love the look of reclaimed wood. It has a rough, rustic look that creates a homey yet raw feel in a space. The best part about reclaimed wood though is that it’s…reclaimed! Any time you can re-use materials rather than send them to the dump, you’re doing a massive favor to the earth. But even then, I would use it whether it was good for the earth or not—I love it that much! There are a variety of ways to use it. Let’s take a look!

Who says bedrooms can’t be colorful and fun?! I certainly don’t! I know many people that are attracted to color but that are scared to introduce it into their bedrooms.

In Central Texas, where I live, that means highs in the 80s and lows in the 50s—not exactly fire building weather, but there will be more than a few cold evenings here as the year continues. Which is why I’m already thinking ahead about fireplaces and fire pits, and why I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you.

Books in the bathroom? A shiny gold front door? Black particleboard kitchen?

Trends come and go; sometimes quicker than a season changes. You have to be smart and creative when it comes to a trend.
