East Coast West Oak Collaboration

One of my very favorite parts of my job (what even is my real job title I wonder?!?) is meeting insanely talented, creative people that are doing very cool things.  Today, I’m completely jazzed up to introduce you to Christie-one of those talented people, and to officially launch our collaborative collection of fabric wall mount planters!

Introducing… The East Coast West Oak Collection

Fabric Planter ECWO

Christie owns West Oak Design an online shop filled with handmade clothing, bags, and home decor.  Christie and I met at a pop up shop this past winter when I bought about 20 of her mini zip pouches as Christmas gifts for everyone I know.  When I was planning out the fireplace wall in my Study-ish makeover, I had the idea to fill the wall with her fabric wall mount planters.  One thing led to another and the East Coast West Oak collaboration was born!

Each fabric planter is handmade, lined, and grommeted for hanging.  The simple geometric patterns and black and white color scheme makes these cuties work in just about any space!

I love how they look over my fireplace!

They’re perfect for succulents or house plants (I say house plants, because I’m not really sure what the non-succulent category is… hmm).  They also have a flat bottom, so you can use them anywhere, you don’t have to hang them- I have a few on my shelves in my family room too.  Actually, my entire house is filled with them and I’m not sad about it one bit! Ha!

I’m really excited about this collaboration and can’t wait to see how you guys use these planters in your homes!!  Share your pictures with the hashtag #eastcoastwestoak

I’m partial to the East Coast West Oak collection on Christie’s site, but there’s so much more to love!

These beaded hanging planters recently made their way into my home.  Everyone asks where I got them! Yesterday, I got a new plant for one of them- I’ll snap a pic and post it on my Instagram account tomorrow (you’re following right?!?)

Modern Study Makeover… The Study-ish

studyroom_blogsize-6

Our family is growing up... we no longer need a playroom for our kids toys and it's a little crazy to think how quickly that phase flew by.  Over the last few months I've worked (in between shoots and makeovers for other people) on a Modern Study Makeover for our family and I won't lie, I think it turned out pretty epic. We moved into our home 5 1/2 years ago and when we did, our kids were 9,6,3,& 2 (to say we had our hands full would be an understatement. To any of you with lots of ...

Here's the thing...

You don't need crazy cake decorating skills, because the Costco cake does most of the work for you!  Here's what you'll need to transform your ...

Mudroom Organization Ideas

commandstrip_blogsize-17

Creating our mudroom was literally a dream come true for me (if you missed the before and after reveal, you can check it out here), but I knew all too well, that a mudroom is only as good as the organizational systems that are in place. Without a plan, my 4 kids would have that pretty spaced trashed in no time!! I thought I'd share with you the mudroom organization systems I put in place and some unique ideas that helped with the hard-to-wrangle stuff! The hidden storage above the lockers is ...

DIY Mudroom Makeover Reveal

mudroommakeover-6

So, today I'm finally revealing my DIY mudroom makeover... I finished it months ago, have absolutely loved how it's changed our home, been so excited about the space and all the projects, and yet, I didn't share it except for some small peeks on Instagram.  You guys have been amazingly encouraging with those tiny peeks and asking to see more! I was even completely blown away when Better Homes & Gardens featured it on their IG account, and yet, I still didn't blog about it... To be honest, ...
