Weekend Room Refresh

Today we are are doing a Refresh Your Room makeover with Method! They just released their new line of Air Refreshers a few weeks ago and to celebrate we launched a $1,000 “Refresh Your Room” giveaway from Method.  Today we are going to show how to do your own Room Refresh. The idea is to refresh your room in a weekend with just $1000. Our managing Editor, Alison Piepmeyer volunteered her living room for the task. Our challenge was to redo Alison’s living room with $1000. Not a small sum of money but not big enough to buy a new sofa. We just wanted to use the things she already had and update the room with a few new pieces. Let’s get started! The first step of a Room Refresh is to (continued below)

Refresh Your Room Contest!

I’ve been a huge Method fan for years. I use their products every single day. So I was thrilled when they approached me about partnering together for the launch of their new Air Refreshers line at Target. The scents are all awesome and actually smell like things you’d find in nature. Plus, they use a new pressurized air technology that doesn’t use petroleum-based propellant like most other air fresheners. The formula is totally non-toxic and free of dirty ingredients.  To celebrate the launch, we’re giving ONE Oh Happy Day reader that chance to refresh a room in their own home with a $1,000 gift card to Target + the chance to sample all 5 of the new Air Refresher fragrances.

One Bookcase, Three Ways

Today I’m showing how I would style this Folding Bookcase three ways. This little bookcase is simple and modern so it can work in any room. I tried it in the kitchen, my bedroom, and the kids room and it looked great everywhere. I really like the Room Essentials line because the pieces are beautiful, really versatile and have excellent price points. When I’m styling a space I think about how it’s going to function and then put it together with art and objects that I love. Plants, Art and Lighting make the biggest difference! How do you style your home?

Target Room Essentials

Like just about every other person I know I love Target! So when I got a chance to check out Target’s new Room Essentials line I said “yes please.” They asked me to share a few of my favorite pieces below, but you can find everything here. I like that the new styles and colors feel so fresh and modern. The patterns on these sheets are amazing, and I can’t wait to use this lamp in my bedroom. And a huge bonus: everything is super affordable. It’s a great way to freshen up your house for a new season without spending a ton of money.

Hanging A Gallery Wall Without Nails

I shared pictures of our dining room renovation but I forgot to mention how we hung all the artwork. I really didn’t want to make a million holes in the beautiful wood so here is what I did…
