6 Times Plants Made a Room

Ever since getting my own apartment I have become addicted to scrolling through Pinterest in search of interior decorating ideas. I didn’t really jump onto the Pinterest bandwagon until recently but I understand now why everyone loves it! There are literally so many amazing ideas out there to help a person (like me) who is developing her own sense of interior style. In looking through my pins, I realized that I have been obsessively pinning photographs of plants recently. I really love the idea of bringing the outdoors inside when decorating my home and want to do more of this in the future.  (more…)

I managed to stay outside for almost an hour and only had to pop indoors twice to warm up my hands (I’m a wimp, I know). For this view, the numb fingers were well worth it. (more…)

Color & Mood



This girl is SO over winter and SO looking forward to spring! I know, it is only mid January, but with the temperatures being below zero in Minnesota this week I turned to my Pinterest page for a sunnier (and less white) color palette.  (more…)
