Friday Faves 4.4

Friday Faves 4.4

ONE just last week I shared Joy’s line for Target, then this week she surprises us with a line for Land of Nod.  Not only is the line gorgeous, but I’ve begun thinking that Joy is my newest business idol.  #isthereanythingshecan’tdo? This floral doodle art is so pretty, and at $20 who wouldn’t want this – kids or not!? TWO how am I just (this week) finding out about Block Chromatics? A mid-century german line that is colorful and too cute. This site has a set of six mugs for $75. THREE Have you seen Rebecca Atwood’s newest?  The Williamson collection is full of bright tangerine cushions, which I love starting at $150 (shown is $225). FOUR this simple black and brass sconce is high on my fave list… now just for someplace to put it! $110 from onefortythree.  FIVE is it possible to fall in love with a rug? That is clearly what’s happened to me.  This silver metallic border jute rug from Serena & Lily is my favorite thing I’ve seen all year. and maybe last year too.  Starting at just $48 for the 2×3, this will make an appearance in my home, and stat!

Wow!  Happy April, guys! Can you believe it?  I’m so so so so happy that spring is finally coming out to play.  This week I even drug out my patio furniture! Goodness knows, there are still cold days and rain in our future, but things are definitely looking up!

Today I’m in Kansas City at Go Blog Social speaking on DIY blogging!  Follow on Instagram for tons of glimpses of the event and if you’re in the area, hit me up!

Have a great weekend, y’all!

Super Easy Herringbone Dish

This easy DIY is a scenario where I saw these little white dishes at Target and thought, “blank slate!”.  I had no clue what I was going to end up using them for, but they were the perfect size, so I couldn’t pass them up.  They’re been sitting on my desk for a few weeks and since I’m a doodler, I whipped out my gold sharpie and started scribbling right on the plates.

There is tons of sharpie art out there on the inter webs, but I just loved how easy, but impressive this one ended up.  It actually makes me think of this little teapot at C. Wonder – which wasn’t my intention, but ended up being pretty comparable… and all for just $2!

Stretching my Limits + A Teaser!

Earlier this year, I made myself a few goals to continue to challenge and push myself in the blog and in life.  One of my goals was to expand my horizons.  This could mean so many different things to different people, but one thing I’m NOT good at is adding color into my life and into my home.  I wear the same black, white, nude, and navy colors almost exclusively.  To look at my closet someone would be like, “wow, this girl has a type”.

The same goes for my home.  Everything is brown, black, grey, and (now!) navy.  I really stepped out with that navy, huh?

Well, this year, Sherwin-Williams asked me to participate in the Sherwin-Williams National Painting Week again.  Last year, I painted a bright and cheery yellow bar (which I still love!) and this year I chose the color red.

Red. 

I am not a red kind of person.  I don’t own one red piece of clothing. If I had to list my favorite colors, red would be the last one. But instead of sticking to a non-color color (which is totally my m.o.) I thought about taking this opportunity to to think outside my normal realm. I mean, I really love warm, neutral spaces, right?  The gorgeous Swedish home above with all red floors is amazing, right? So I can do this.

When I really got to thinking about it, I found a great balance.  This red accented dining room from West Elm has some great neutral elements, but it’s also got some pretty pops of red.  What makes is likable for me?  The red is a deep, spicy, warm color like the sunset instead of a cool, stark, modern red that I’ve been thinking of all these years.  I actually used the photo from West Elm as my guide to choosing a nice red since they teamed up with Sherwin-Williams on some pretty awesome colors.

I decided that Tanager -SW6601- is the essence of what I was looking for. Spicy, deep, brownish red – perfect for meshing with my neutral home.

Are you ready to see what I painted? You’ll find out one week from today back here!  In the meantime, check out all of the other bloggers participating in this year’s Sherwin Williams National Painting Week and keep up with the action using #SWpaintingweek. There are fifteen bloggers participating, so there will be TONS of reveals for you to see next week!

Glamming up my Gallery Wall Giveaway!

Giveaway sponsored by Legrand adorne

If I had to show off one wall in my home as exemplifying my personal style, it would be this one.  It’s classic with a little global, but mostly neutral. When I first put together my new navy blue entry way, I was seriously irritated at the white light switches and plates that interrupted the blue walls. I bought black ones, but they looked even worse. So then, the same exact week, Legrand contacted me to try out their new line of switches and plates called, adorne.  I was like, “what are the odds…” so I was excited to work with them on glam-ing up my entry way a bit more with their brushed gold plates.

So, it is possible to get a pretty switch!  And guess what?  YOU can enter to win $500 in adorne product for your house.  All you have to do is tweet or pin a photo of one wall in your house that shows off your personal style. You have to tag @legrandna and #adornemyhome to enter! Easy, huh?

If you follow on Instagram, you’ll see that I installed them myself! I wanted to really see if it was as easy as they made it out to be.  Well, I ran into a few snafus.  All due to my house being terribly old and not wired amazingly.  I called their customer service line to ask a question about the fact that I had more wires than what the video said I should have.  Anyway, I got the help I needed and was on my way installing these beauties.

I admit that doing the electrical work myself was a new experience, but it all worked out wonderfully.  Being my first time doing it, I am by no means fitted to give a DIY, but the line comes with online videos, and they’re so so helpful.

See that dimmer?  I did that!

So, go!  Enter the contest! Several other bloggers are participating as well, so head over to see their walls too!

Spring Floral Series: The Small Bunch

MMD_5051

Are you guys excited?  We’re ready for the second post in our spring floral design series and today, I’m going to show you guys how to make a gorgeous small arrangement.  This particular arrangement is made in a juice glass, so it’s a great example of how you can break down bunches of flowers to make gorgeous smaller designs to add a pop of spring color anywhere in your home.  Using your juice glasses instead of a larger vase means the flowers stretch a little farther, and you save moolah.

I usually make one for my bedside, my kitchen, my office, and my bathroom.  If you need a quick refresher on caring for flowers when you bring them home, stem placement, and more, read last year’s series called, beginner blooms.

Let’s get started!

Make Someone’s Day Mini Notecards

Sweet thoughts notecards mini

this post is sponsored by Makr App

Aren’t these mini cards too cute?  I made them!  The folks at Makr reached out to me to ask me if I’d give their new App for iPad a try. Since I love fun apps and I love DIYs, I was (of course) in.

you're sweet mini notecard

I’m always a tiny hesitant about using templates to make things because I always kind of think it’s more hassle than it’s worth, but this is not the case with Makr.  I dug in and played around for hours.  To the point where my husband was like, “what are you doing over there?” I think I was just enjoying myself a little too much.

Once you get into the templates, you can customize pretty much anything, BUT the app gives you suggestions for everything from the backgrounds, to the fonts, to the little graphics and the colors so that the whole design stays cohesive for those who don’t have a graphic design background.

I ended up using a business card template to make these adorable mini cards.  The ‘You’re Sweet’ card is something to slip to a friend for co-worker who is always helpful and kind.  I made a ‘You Look Cute’ card because there is so often that I want to tell people that they look cute, but thought giving them a darling little card would just make their day that much sweeter!

you look cute mini notecard thinking of you mini notecard

A ‘Thinking of You’ card is really for any occasion.  I don’t even think the cards need signed or any other explanation, just a little note to someone you may or may not know to make their day.

The back even has a little disclaimer…

mini notecards

Cute huh?

You can choose to print your designs at home, or have them professionally printed, a great option for when you need something quick like labels!

The best news yet?  The Makr app is FREE.  Try it out, I think you’ll love it.  House of Earnest readers even get an Makr Credit and 20% off printing with the code: EARNESTFAN

I now have a stack of fun, thoughtful little cards to spread around the world.

Who would you give a mini happiness card to?

Breathe it all in

breath it all in

Sponsored by Caldrea

Spring has officially sprung and I am wasting no time to embrace it.  Flowers in every room?  Check.  Open windows? Check. Spring Cleaning? Semi Check!

I wrote last year about de-wintering vs actual spring cleaning and that mindset is still very helpful in the way I go about preparing for the big clean.  During the winter, dust, smells, who knows what else accumulate in our homes and as soon as it’s warm enough to get the air circulating, I jump at the chance for a clean start.

This year, Caldrea and I were working on a great way to share their new spring line with you, and I thought about addressing the smells in our homes, what we can do about correcting them, and my selections for scent pairings!  I have narrowed some stinky areas down to four: stale closet smell, inky kitchen sink smell, the bathroom ‘you-know-what’ smell, and the mildew towel smell.  All my least favorite smells. Actually, the mildew towel smell is the bottom of the barrel for me, there is just nothing worse than getting out of a shower to wipe your face with a mildew towel.

So now, I’m tackling each smell, what to do about it, and how Caldrea can help.  Are you ready?

Stale Closet
Scent pairing: Rosewater Driftwood

I’m so so bad at the stale closet smell.  I swear it comes from the dry cleaner… I clean my delicate blouses regularly, so why do they all still smell so… off? It has to do with the way our body oils mix with the synthetics in the fabric and then mix with the chemicals in the dry cleaning fluid, gross, right? I’ve literally found that a mixture of sachets and soft scented linen spray is the best mode of operation.

We have three more to go!  Continue Reading…

A Closet within a Closet

creating a linen closet1

I have quite the little surprise to share with you guys today.  Throughout this entire closet renovation, you’ve heard me go on and on about how little space old homes have and I’m sure lots of you guys can relate. As part of my grand closet scheme, I had another idea for a way to further maximize the space of the odd, unused room.

You’ve clearly seen that in the closet, there was a door which led to the hallway. Here is it from within the closet and from outside of the closet. Odd, right?  Well, we’ve learned not to even wonder why some of the things in the house are the way they are, we just work with it.

linen closet - before

So, what we did about it was create a linen closet.  Keep reading for more photos and details of the closet within our closet.   Continue Reading…
