Home Decor – New Artwork for Spring

Since we moved in, I’ve kinda wanted to break up with the artwork in the kitchen. A beach scene I bought 5 years ago that hung above the mantle in the old house. I loved it when I bought it, but now, well, I think it’s just time for a change. When we moved, I dismissed my old fling and haphazardly placed it in the kitchen…a tropical, Hawaiian beach scene. It’s been a good run with this beachy piece, but let’s shake it up and do a switcheroo. Let’s find some new artwork for Spring!

Beautiful Distractions No. 5

Mercury Retrograde has made me want to Amazon Prime a helmet to my front door, sage my home and hang heeling crystals all around my body. As soon as my accountant started yelling at me about my taxes last Tuesday and The Boy’s travel plans got majorly snafooed, I knew something had to be afoot. Do you believe in Mercury Retrograde? Do you do anything to twart the confusion? I think I’ll just stay in bed, shop online, and watching the remaining DVR episodes of Little Big Lies.  I wanted to finish reading the book first, but didn’t have the patience. Confession…I’m a slow reader….I don’t know why, but it puts me to sleep. I also heard I need to This Is Us. Here’s what else I’m loving lately.

The How To Guide For Estate Sales

It was shocking to learn how many of my vintage besties have never attended an estate sale. Yes, walking into a complete stranger’s home can be quite intimidating, but estate sales are where I find the best stuff with the best prices. So, because not everyone is versed in this art of thrifting, I decided to write a complete how to guide for estate sales.

Let’s Talk Swimsuits —The One Piece

Anyone else in the I hate shopping for swimsuits boat? Raise your hand high. For me it’s worse than going to the dentist on the 58th floor of the airport…the dentist, elevators, and planes are enough to make me grab a bottle of vodka and hide in my closet. Mix that whole batch of awfulness together, and you got my attitude towards shopping for swimwear. There’s nothing quite like walking into a fitting room with 27 suits in hand, sausaging myself  into each, and inevitably leaving empty handed with a frowny face.

Home Tour — Marianne Brown’s Denver Dwelling

When Marianne Brown emailed me out of the blue and said, “Hey, my home is unique, cool and eclectic, would you like to feature it on your blog?” I said, “Heck ya I would! Home tours are hella fun.” 

Why do I like featuring homes that don’t belong to me? If you guessed, “Kyla, you’re that total weirdo that looks into homes on evening walks…not in a creepster way…but in a I want to see your pillows kinda way,” you’re completely right. Gotta home tour you think I should feature? What are you waiting for??? Sharing is caring, so email it over for review, and be sure to visit Ashley Redmond’s Tiny Treehouse home tour.

Marianne Brown Home Tour - Mid-Century Modern Minimal Home Decor

Today we’re touring Marianne Brown’s home in Denver, CO. She’s an incredible photographer and claims thrift stores are her sanctuary…my kinda gal. As most of you know, I’m a chair hoarder. Well, Marianne one upped that sich. She’s a sofa hoarder. Don’t believe me? Check out her Etsy shop chucked full of vintage beauties (and some great photography prints as well, I love the bull print). But mitts of that green 1970’s channel back…because that should be mine, LOL.
