4 Tips for an Entryway Makeover

Entryways are the first thing you see, not to mention the first thing your guests see (you know what they say about first impressions!) Even though they are a small space its an opportunity to make a huge difference. I love small decorating projects like an entryway. You can give it a little refresh with not much effort or money and it goes a long way. Here are four tips for putting together a modern entryway.

Introducing Swash

We just got a Swash machine to try out (in our newly renovated laundry room–pictures coming soon!) It’s a brilliant little machine that allows you refresh your clothes in between dry cleaning. It’s like when you find a dress you want to wear but you realize it is a wrinkly mess and you are in a rush out the door. Enter Swash. Basically, it does 4 things: 1) de-wrinkles, 2) removes odors, 3) restores stretched fabrics, and 4) extends the life of garments. I just throw my clothes into the Swash, push a button, and 10 minutes later they look great (no more ironing or steaming!) Although it doesn’t totally replace the dry cleaner, we’ve definitely cut down on our trips. I highly recommend it! Click here to find out where you can buy one in your area.

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)

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.
