New bedroom wall art: watercolor prints…

| Making a house a home...

… we’re still slowly (very slowly) decorating our bedroom, so I thought I’d pop this little update on here. Bedroom Watercolor Prints 2 Bedroom Watercolor Prints 3 Bedroom Watercolor Prints 7 Bedroom Watercolor Prints 5 Bedroom Watercolor Prints 6

I love the look of simple watercolor prints, which I found here, and the frames were a steal at HomeGoods – making for a very easy and fairly inexpensive way to add a little art to the walls.

Next up for the bedroom, decorating the shelves we added on the opposite side of the room. Much like our kitchen, I’ll probably fret over them for awhile before I’m ready to share any updates … not that I’m particular or anything. 🙂

Happy Monday friends!

What I’m loving Wednesdays: Free Christmas Printables…

| Making a house a home...

Christmas Printables Christmas Printables 2 … there are so many good ones to chose from!

Since we live in a small house, I try to keep the Christmas decor on the simple(r) side and this year – instead of adding to the decor in our cozy (isn’t that a nice way to describe it?) living room – I swapped out frames on our picture shelves for free holiday printables I found on Pinterest.

There are many talented bloggers out there willing to share their work – much needed considering my lack of design skills – and here the prints I’m loving:

To add a few additional decor elements, I got the big sparkly, twine star and red lantern from Pier 1.

I finally got around to ordering stockings, but since we lack a fireplace and/or mantle, the shelves are acting as a faux mantle of sorts. They’re versatile I tell you! To hang the stockings, all we used were extra ornament hooks. Easy as that. Now obviously, they won’t hold the stockings when Santa stuffs them ;), but I think he’ll know what to do.

And because it was hard to narrow down which prints I wanted to use, here’s a few other favorites I found floating around the internet:

I can’t decide if I’ll change these out each Christmas, but I do know that Jeff would like me to stop asking him for his opinion and then not take it. Marriage, am I right? 🙂

I’m starting with the man in the mirror…

| Making a house a home...

err, I mean woman.

Living Room Mirrors 1Although, I should probably give you a head’s up that this post isn’t really about me “changing my ways” – lord knows I could devote many posts to that – but rather, about adding a few new mirrors to our living room. You know, the one we started decorating in January.

So what was originally the burgundy(ish) accent wall in the living room ended up staying blank for many months thanks to my indecisiveness. However…this past weekend I found mirrors at good ol’ Target I think will work!

Living Room Mirrors 2^^Jeff wanted photos on the wall, but I’ve always been a firm believer we need mirrors there. Anything to make our teeny, tiny living room look just a little bit bigger. As you can see, we went with mirrors, but (!) that’s not to say I “won” the argument, more like I just had a stronger opinion that won Jeff over. That’s all. 😉 ^^

I wish I could say we measured everything in a methodical manner before we started putting holes in the wall, but not so much. Thankfully, I have Jeff – who knows what he’s doing.

Comparing the ‘before’ (like way before), and ‘after’ shots, I’d say overall I’m pleased with the update! Have a look for your self.

^^What do you all (or y’all) think? I think I like them, but still be open to suggestions!^

Also, I’m still on a never-ending quest to get the perfect frames and trinkets for the shelves, so as soon as I feel like those are nearly complete I’ll share a close-up look with all of you.

⇓ In the meantime, I’m gonna go back to creeping on Cosmo through the mirrors. ⇓
