Have you ever finished a project, stepped back, sized it up and wondered what was missing?

I do that all.the.time.

I am not a decorator or expert on anything home decor related, but I do know what I like and what I don’t.

Discovering all that really matters is having a home that is both lived in and loved in has been freeing for me..

I love to browse Pinterest (you can follow me here) but I do so to gather ideas in helping me discover my own personal style.

I think I’m shabby chic meets rustic with a pop of color thrown in!

I love it so much! This DIY fabric rag banner cost nothing and adds just the right amount of accent with my otherwise neutral gray walls.

  2. Lovely touch. The grey and white is so restful and the salmon? accents are just right. Like how you even found a book in that shade 😉
