  • UP IN THE AIR: 4 DIY WAYS TO STYLE AIR PLANTS

    Go light, airy and ultra easy with your indoor greenery using just about anything, from candle lanterns to terrariums. Air plants are a breeze to care for when you’ve got a consistent watering schedule (ie: a 20-minute soak every 3 – 4 weeks), not to mention they’re available in stunning colors (even pink!). They key to making the Tillandsia sing as a home decor statement is to explore all the different sizes and textures, then group them together for a one-of-a-kind botanical bouquet.

    I love the stunning black-tipped spikes of a Tillandsia stricta and the breezy draping of Spanish moss (did I mention that when well taken care of, they flower as well?). Let’s explore adding these beauties to every room of the house in the name of DIY and the pursuit of botanical bliss. These four fresh decor updates are going to change your home in just one day!

  • How I Created a Boho-Chic Balcony

    Hello there, Loves.

    For today's post, I'm sharing with you my newly decorated balcony, in partnership with Orchard Supply Hardware. I have been itching to decorate my balcony and since summer is in full effect, I knew I had to do it now. I just returned from my vacation (Tulum) two days ago and I was so inspired by all the textures, fabrics, and contrast I saw in Tulum. Immediately upon returning I went directly to my local Orchard store to shop the items I knew would be perfect for my balcony decor.

    I started off my week one happy gal, skipping the vacation blues, and enjoying my newly decorated space. Nothing serves more bliss to my life than the comfort and chicness of my home, my happy space. Walk with me as I share how I decorated this chic, mexican-moroccan-boho vibe city balcony.

  • Dremel Hatch: A Wood Project Kit that comes with everything you need.

    Ever buy a project kit that told you it had “everything you need” or to “just add imagination?” Ever become get really, really upset when you opened that kit and it did not, in fact, come with everything you need? Yeah. Us too.

    So when Dremel® said they had a wood crafting project kit that included everything you need, our interests were piqued. Incoming the Dremel Hatch Project!

    We told them we were curious, and they sent us one to check out—a pallet wood wall art project called Skyline. We immediately went to work inspecting every single tiny little thing about it.

    Our conclusion? It’s the best thing that’s happened to craft night since the embroidery hoop.

    Overstatements aside, it lives up to everything we were told, and you’ll know it as soon as you pick one up.

    The first thing you’re going to notice is the box. It’s not just another cardboard box, it’s actually part of the project. It’s the workspace. Really!
