Desk Inspiration!

Recently, I’ve gotten myself a new, small set up for my desk at work that is not only beautiful (to me at least) but as well calming during the rough days! It’s amazing how flowers and a couple of sassy signs can change the setting of your work area. Enjoy!



Vase and flowers are from Pier 1 Imports and the two signs are from Shopko! 🙂

DIY Color Swatch Dry Erase Calendar!

I have recently just gotten a new office job (yay!) and I found this cool idea on Pinterest! A do-it-yourself color swatch dry erase calendar!

Over the past 2.5 years in school for Interior Design, I’m sure you can image the bunches and bunches I have of color and fabric swatches, so instead of keeping them in a box, I decided to get a little creative with them!

First off, I went down to my local Goodwill and bought a regular picture frame for like $3. This frame is an 11×14.

Second, I dug out my 2015 color swatches from Sherwin Williams and I started to think on what color scheme I would like to do or if I would like to do something completely random! IT’S TOTALLY UP TO YOU!

Third, I started cutting and placing the swatches where I would like them, then securing them down with scotch tape onto the frames inner glass.

Once everything was placed how I liked it, I put the frame back together and BAM, all finished!

I have gotten a dry-eraser marker from Dollar Tree. You can now use the glass as a dry-erase board, because it wipes off so easily! Plenty of room to fix mistakes or change your schedule without worrying about your paper schedule (I’m a neat freak like that)!

P.S: I only did a Monday-Friday version, and I combined the last 2 weeks 🙂

New Year, New Color

ell folks, it’s a new year! That’s right, 2015 has been left in the past and now it’s time for 2016!

With the new year already kicking off, I’m sure a lot of you are ready for some new color in your household! Whether that be new paint, accessories, or a new bedspread design, something new and refreshing is probably needed somewhere!

Let’s start off with Sherwin William’s Color of the Year!

This year’s 2016 color is…



“Alabaster represents a straightforward and necessary shift to mindfulness. It provides an oasis of calmness, spirituality and ‘less is more’ visual relief. Alabaster is neither stark nor overly warm, but rather an understated and alluring white.”
Jackie Jordan, Sherwin-Williams director of color marketing.
