Are you Making These 4 Common Decorating Mistakes?

 A few weeks ago I posted “7 Decorating Mistakes That Involve Windows & Walls and How to Avoid them.” It seemed to be a hit, so I thought why not continue the trend and focus on mistakes that involve more than just your windows and walls.

I don’t write these posts to make you feel like crap if you happen to be making these mistakes. Quite frankly, I don’t care about how you decorate your home. I write these posts to help you see your space differently and potentially recognize a design obstacle you’ve …

DESIGN CELLAR FREEBIE: The Bathroom Makeover Roundup + Simple Ways to Update Your Bathroom

Our bathroom renovation is well underway and as of this weekend, everything is completely gutted and now all we have to do is start building it back up.

Famous last words.

Ironically, this weekend is the one year anniversary of that time I spent 3 weeks painting our kitchen cabinets. I’ve been saying for the last year that painting the kitchen cabinets has been by far the hardest and most time-consuming project I’ve ever taken on and *omg no effin way can any project ever compare.*

Loving Lately: 7 Home + Interior Related Obsessions

erin kestenbaum

Jesus take the wheel – it’s finally August. I wait all year long for July 31st to come to an end because quite frankly – I’m not a fan of any of any of the months prior to August. Most people get seasonal depression in the wintertime, but I seem to get it during the heavy and humid days of summer. Put me in an air-conditioned room with the thermostat set at a solid 70 degrees and I’m happy as a clam. Because I’m cool as a cucumber.

DESIGN CELLAR FREEBIE: How I’m Planning for Our Master Bathroom Remodel

A few days ago the rather impulsive part of me decided that we need to do something about our shitty bathrooms, like, IMMEDIATELY.  I can’t stand to be in any of our bathrooms, however, today I’m just talking about the one I can’t fathom the most – our master bathroom.
