Moodboard inspired by my living room

Like the headline already mentioned, I had an online client who wanted a living room that was inspired by my living room. Not exactly but similar. 

And this is what I came up with:









That's it for today.
On Wednesday I'll write a little bit about Haven. I just got back last night but was way to tired to chat about my awesome experience.

Neon Kate Spade New York Nesting Boxes

Look what I got! I'm so giddy!
I have some Kate Spade goodness to share with you today!

When one of my favorite companies Lifeguard Press contacted me to see if I wanted to have something from their new Kate Spade New York line I had to honestly pinch myself.

I couldn't email back fast enough. Kate Spade for me? A fat big YES please. Do you remember my Jonathan Adler accessories posts (click HERE and HERE to see)? This is from the same company. I love Lifeguard Press ;)

So they sent me Kate Spade Nesting Boxes in neon colors since they thought it would look great in my new closet. And they also sent me the Kate Spade New York Spiral Notebook. And lucky me, it all came just in time for my birthday.




The boxes are actually the reason why I decided to add a lot more colors to our dining room and kitchen after painting it all white. They look so so pretty and are so vibrant. 

And here they are in my closet. I hope you aren't sick of it yet:







So pretty right?

And the spiral notebook ended up on my secretary desk:





Such pretty birthday presents. Don't you agree? And I see some more vibrant colors in my near future. Maybe even some more neon ;) lets see. 

Here are some more favorites:


1.  Gold Sparkly Cat Mask (you know me right?)


{This is not a sponsored post.  I did receive these items from Lifeguard Press to review. I only share things that I truly love on my blog}

Make sure to stop back on Friday for my next "Living Pretty With Your Pet Post".

My Wall Vinyl Secrets and Ideas

Anybody sick of the weather yet? For us it has been lots and lots of snow and I have to admit that I'm probably one of those freaks that enjoy the snow. I love to go skiing and can do that in abundance. Unfortunately right now it's only once or twice a week but better than nothing.
And I love being in our own little bubble on snow-stormy days because I have a great excuse to cancel everything ;)

I have received a large amount of emails regarding questions about my cross wall hallway makeover. Requests to share how I did it! While this might not be a great decision for my Etsy store (I suck at business decisions I guess), I decided to share with you what I use for decals exactly.
One lovely reader reminded me that DIY blogs are about sharing. And in a way that's true, right?

So I thought that before I share my own decal project, I'd show you some other ideas that I came across.

Last week Emily from "Everything Emily Blog" posted her washi tape cross wall which is also a genius idea:

Head on over to her blog to see how she created this stunning wall treatment only with washi tape. And please only pin this image from her blog and not mine, ok?

Or if you'd rather paint it and don't want to be too exact, then you can also create something like this:

Also pretty cool, right?

And if you missed my wall makeover, click HERE for the hallway and HERE for the closet.





Back to my crosses which are a lot bigger and involve a cutting machine (plotter, like the Silhouette Cameo) and wall grade vinyl.

A lot of people ask what kind of wall vinyl I use and I use Oracal631 which you can buy at USCutter.

I create my patterns in Adobe Illustrator especially the more complex ones like my litter box decal (click HERE). All the other more simple shapes are easily created in the Silhoutte program itself.

The machine does it all for you.

So my vinyl secret is out. Which one of the projects do you think you would/could tackle?

The washi tape, painted or silhouette cut crosses?



Or would you prefer to buy them? Because I have added them to my Etsy shop and you can see them buy clicking HERE.
