Modern, California Coastal Bedroom

Sometimes it’s fun to put together a mood board without any real intentions of translating it into real life.  I created this one and once I had the elements together, it really evoked a very particular sentiment for me.

It somehow feels like the end of summer at the Californian coast.  Which kinda makes me sad cause I don’t want summer to be anywhere near over!bedroomroundupFor a list of sources, hop over to Crane & Canopy’s blog.  Though this isn’t a sponsored post, I’ve admired their bedding for quite some time and, like I said, thought putting together a mood board in which I had almost free reign would be a fun exercise.

Does this mood board evoke any emotions to you?  Do you ever create mood boards just for fun to sorta take a visual pulse of your current style?

DIY White Hobnail Milk Glass Vase

4.5 - rotating vase to let it fully dry

Years ago, I had ordered flowers to be delivered to my mom at work for her birthday.  They were purple tulips and they came in a white hobnail milk glass vase.  I complimented my mom on the vase so much that eventually she just gave it to me.  Like all my vases, I store them under the sink.  Unfortunately, when one of us were rummaging for cleaning supplies, the vase got broken. I super glued it back together as best […]

Brave New Home Craft Fails

Not all the projects I attempt for my Brave New Home audience end up panning out. Each project has their own set of unique reasons for not making the grade.  I thought it’d be kinda fun to reveal some of the projects that eventually made it over to my Abandoned folder of doom.  Seriously, aren’t craft fails just the best?  They’re kinda LOL funny to me. First up in my series of craft fails, scented play dough.Pretty unexceptional project overall.  […]

2014 NY Resolutions Revisited

NY Resolution Report Card

Recently, I got a pingback from another blogging friend linking back to the home-related new year’s resolutions I made for 2014 which made me think, “Oh yeah…I forgot about those!”I hafta say, it feels really good to write this post cause I’ve had my blog posts scheduled for a bit over a month now (a mini-maternity leave for me from blogging if you will) so this is like eating a fresh salad after eating reheated frozen dinners you prudently prepared […]
