Gray, white, and yellow

Last fall my parents asked me to help them decorate their guest bathroom. I was so excited to take this on! I had the perfect color scheme in mind...gray, white, and yellow. I have seen a lot of these colors put together and I love how they look. They painted the bathroom walls a dark gray (it almost looks black) and my dad and I painted the cabinets black. Mom and I found some yellow knobs at Anthropologie in Chicago last October. It took a while to find things to hang on the walls but I think what we came up with looks great!
White and yellow curtain that was made by the Fabric Gallery. I love this print!

Shower curtain from West Elm

The yellow medallion was a diy project I found on pinterest. I bought 3 of these at Lowes and spray painted them yellow! Super easy and cheap!

Frame from Pier 1 with yellow and white scrapbook paper inside. Those are just a few of the details of their guest bathroom. I love how it turned out!

New Year, New Look

This year for Christmas I asked for some gift cards from my family so I could re-decorate my living room. My living room walls have been bare for over 6 months and I was ready to get something on them! I got lots of gift cards to Hobby Lobby, Pier 1, I.O. Metro, and Pottery Barn. I spent one afternoon shopping with my aunt and we bought a lot! I finally feel like it is coming together. I still have one wall that is bare but I know what is going on it! Here is our new look:
Found these mirrors at I.O. Metro. They have barnwood on them, which I love!

All of the pillows with green are new. I bought the two in the back at I.O. and the ruffle pillow at TJ Maxx

I saw this look at Pottery Barn and wanted to try it. I already had the mirror and the plates, so I just had to put it together!

This is by far my favorite in my living room! My aunt came over and helped me organize it all. I love love how it turned out! I used frames, letters, keys, mirrors, initials, and rod iron. It fits the wall perfectly! All I need now is a lamp to go in the corner!

I took down the blinds in the living room and put up roman shades! It is hard to take a picture but you can see it a little. This changed the whole look of the living room! I have had so much fun re-decorating and am so happy with the new changes! I will post more pics when I finish the other 2 walls.

New Years Eve 2011

Andy and I hosted a New Years Eve party with some of our friends last night. We haven't hosted a party in a long time so I was pretty excited! I was wanting to come up with something fun that everyone could remember this night by. I came across Kara Paslay Designs blog and she had posted some New Years Eve ideas. I attempted to re-create her photo backdrop idea and took pictures of the guests as they arrived. It was super fun and I think everyone enjoyed it! Thanks to Kara for the awesome idea! Here are some snapshots of the guests:

Happy New Year!
