SEE LARK! | Solved: Modern Nursery Decor Challenges

I finally finished A’s nursery (albeit several weeks after he was born). We used our back guest room that served as my hubby’s office.  Now he has to learn to share…ha!   I had some anxiety about decorating this space since baby furniture and decor can be a little cheesy.  So what is a modern design loving gal to do?  Here are highlights of the design challenges encountered and the solutions discovered.

When decorating your living space, one should approach it like picking out an outfit.   Many times I would see all dark finished wood or only one style of furniture in someone’s living room (equate that to matchy match shoes, purse and belt – boring) and it had me thinking…you would never limit yourself to one look or genre so why do that to your home? Using pieces from Modani Modern Furniture and yours truly as a test case, here is a quick guide to styling a living room that is perfectly you.

High Low Nursery Art

I have been putting a lot of thought into the future nursery. I have never been an overly cutesy person, so I knew I wanted something sweet but not too “themey”.  I love the animal artwork by Sharon Montrose and have been looking over all adorable options on her Animal Print Shop.   Continue reading “High Low Nursery Art”

Organizing Small Things

SEE LARK! | Organizing Small Things

Lately, I have found myself trying to catch-up on organizing and de-cluttering the house on weekends (not how one should use their free time).  I am amazed on how much stuff piles up, especially in the bedroom like make-up, bobby pins, and other small things that I need put can’t stand have floating around the bathroom or nightstand. With a little ingenuity, I take decorative items and repurpose them to help store and organize all these small things while keeping the room stylish.  Here are some ideas for your next organization project.

Eye On Etsy

SEE LARK! | Eye On Etsy | For The Home

I have home decor on the brain.  Even though our house has been fully fluffed and nested, I still like to think about how to change things up.  The idea gets in my head thanks to some shiny object discovered on Etsy. This month, I am adoring modern home accents in white and grays with gold and brass finishes. Continue reading “Eye On Etsy”

If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, then trays are an organized person’s trusty sidekick.  Trays are a great way to add a little design to your home while putting order to items that would otherwise seem scattered and in disarray. I love using trays to organize sunglasses, perfume and lotion bottles, and hide loose ends. Lately, neon trays have been making a splash in home decor and I can understand its allure.

Five Minute Gift Wrap

I really enjoy the process of buying and packaging up a gift for a friend or loved one. To me, it’s like portable home décor, each one has a certain look and style perfect for the intended person. Over the years, I have learned that it doesn’t have to take a lot of effort to make a great looking gift. All you need is to keep a few simple materials on hand to make an already thoughtful present into a “wow-ful” present in five minutes flat. Continue reading “Five Minute Gift Wrap”

Charleston Part Deux

My first trip to Charleston, South Carolina was for a friend’s wedding.  The visit was sweet but definitely too short.  Therefore, I was excited to return spending the weekend exploring the city.  This southern town is beautiful and rich in history, but did you know that it has also been consistently voted one of the top cities in the US and even one of the top destinations globally? Well, I can see why.  The city offers a wide variety of sights, activities, and delicious eats…here’s are a few highlights. Continue reading “Charleston Part Deux”

The Most Clever Kitchen Utensils

scizza-1

I am not a huge pizza fan but a recent trip to DC’s Menomale has made me a convert (at least for an authentic Neopolitan pizza). With a delicious meal comes a delicious surprise. Our pizzas came with our very own pizza cutter in the shape of scissors, a Scizza to be exact. I love the ergonomic design of the handles and the flat bottom spatula. Hallelujah! A way to cleanly cut a slice of pizza! I learned that the Scizza is made by an Australian company called Dreamfarm. Dreamfarm’s story begins by stating “‘We solve problems” and developing products based on its ability to answer one question – “Will this product solve a real problem that hasn’t been solved Continue reading “The Most Clever Kitchen Utensils”
