I love accessorizing.
I really do.

❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

It's my favorite part of decorating.

❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

Accessories add that special something to a room.

❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

I like to use pieces that have personal meaning.

❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

And play around with grouping items together.

❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

Sometimes using things in an unusual way.

❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

I love how accessories can help to create a certain feeling.

I know you do!

So much fun, isn't it?

This kitchen is from Remodelondo la Casa and I've always thought the watery blue/green color on the island is just so pretty.

Family Room Reveal

Hello Everyone!
I've been meaning to post about our updated family room for a very long time and I'm
 finally doing it - yeah!!
I had been ready to replace our brown leather furniture for a while and when a new Ikea opened very close to us last summer, I jumped at the chance to take a good look at their slipcovered furniture. Originally the plan was to buy another sofa and loveseat like we had but when I  saw the Ektorp sectional on the showroom floor at Ikea, I was sold.   It just seemed so cozy and I could really envision it in our family room.

I'm at a point where I don't want to buy expensive furniture that I feel like I
have to keep forever.   We even had the sofa delivered and they took away the old sofa and loveseat  for a very small fee.

We purchased this dresser from Wayfair to use as a TV console an…
