Clients Home Décor Tour

Hello, Hello!  Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. 

This is the last post on a clients home that my niece and I decorated last summer.

The guest room is very simple, done with a very minimal look. I decided to share the room with you because there’s a couple of things that may interest some of you…
Like these extra long  navy blue curtain panels that came from Ikea. Ikea has some great panels! Especially if your looking to get long lengths.  A lot of them come with iron-on-hemming tape too.
This adorable bedding is from JCPenney’s
The Wrought Iron Wall Piece is from Ross.  I found one similar on Kaboodle.  I’d like to get one of these pieces for my back porch.
That’s it for the photo’s of my clients guest bedroom.

If you missed any of the other rooms from this home you can view the post on each of them by clicking the photo’s or the links below:




That wraps up this clients home décor tour. 

I've been doing more organizing lately! Some in my own home and some from my mom's place. Be sure to check back soon to see how I've organized bathroom cabinets to closets, to sewing supplies, knitting supplies, material and more.

May you be a little inspired!
Until next time,

    Family Room Décor: Clients Home

    Hello all! Today, I’m sharing the family room décor from my clients home. 

    This room has almost all brand new stuff in it.  The only existing piece is the rug.  Out of all the rooms that my niece and I decorated for my client last summer, this one definitely took the longest to finish.  The reason being is that we needed to shop, order furniture, shop some more, wait for the furniture to arrive, shop some more, wait for more furniture to arrive and well… you get my point, right? 

    It took a while, yes, but in the end my client was happy and that’s what’s most important. 
    Inside the corner armoire is the TV and the Wii.  DVD’s, Wii games and such are stored in baskets that fit perfectly underneath the coffee table. I wish I would have taken pictures of the baskets, but I didn’t. 

    If you don’t have the space to store DVD’s, movies, Wii games, PlayStation games, etc. in the same unit as your TV, contain the items in baskets and store somewhere nearby.

    Storing baskets under coffee tables can be used for so many different things, from magazines to books, extra blankets, crafts, diapers & wipes to children's toys and more.  Baskets are just great for everything!

    This is the clock that I was telling you about last week.  A person could totally make one of these.  I’ve seen clock hardware at Craft Warehouse.  Using a little creativity, one could whip one of these up in no time.  That is, if your crafty and enjoy creating things.  If not, you can find cool looking clocks like this at Real Deals or Homegoods, possibly even Ross or TJ Maxx.
    The couches are from JCPenney’s and the red chair is from Homegoods.
    The frames on the wall are still waiting for family portraits to be placed inside.
    14
    Typically I like to hang curtains really high.  Most of the time I’ll hang them as close to the ceiling as possible.  It’s amazing what a difference hanging panels from ceiling to floor can do to a space. Try it, you’ll be amazed and you’ll LOVE it.  Just make sure your panels are long enough.  Don’t hang them at the ceiling if they’re not long enough to touch the floor, or hang just a tad above the floor.

    Ikea has extra long panels, however while doing this house, they didn’t have red ones.

    The ceilings in my clients home are 9 feet tall. With ceilings that tall, you either need to buy custom curtains, find extra long ones OR make your own.  I wasn’t up for making custom curtains and Ikea didn’t have any red ones (which is the color we were going for) so my client picked up these panels from Pier One. They weren’t long enough to go to the ceiling, so I didn’t put them there, but they still work.
    Most of the pillows in this room are from Pier One too.
    A lot of the décor here is from Real Deals.
    6
    :)
    I like to shape couch pillows by using the side of my hand and doing a little “karate chop” to the middle of the pillow.  I think it adds a nice finishing touch.

    I’m forever “karate chopping” the pillows in my own home, especially after my boys have just had a pillow fight and all the pillows land up all over the floor (which is daily.) Ha, maybe I should teach my boys to do the “pillow karate chop.”   They may actually have fun with that one. ;)
    The art above the fireplace is from Homegoods.  The pieces on either side are actually candle sconces…
    5
    ...the candle sconces felt a little too small for the space, so I trimmed some foam to fit inside the sconces and hot-glued artificial greens into them, allowing plenty of the ivy strands to flow down, creating a larger looking piece.

    Now check out the before and after’s together:
     
    and…
    and…

    I still have a little more to show you, so come back soon to see the rest of my clients home.

    I certainly don’t claim to be a professional decorator or organizer, for that matter. I just enjoy both very much and if I can share and inspire others in either department, well then, I’ve succeeded, because that’s my goal here.


    May you be a little inspired!
    Until next time,

    Kitchen and Breakfast Nook: Clients Home

    Hey ya’ll.  Thanks to all who joined the party on Thursday.  I just love looking through all your fabulous ideas.  You all are so very talented. 
     
    I’ve had quite the crazy busy last couple of weeks.  So busy, I haven’t had time to write up any features from the parties, BUT I promise I will be getting some features done within a couple of days. I’m in the process of changing my blog schedule a bit, so I’ll be sure and let you know the plan on my features.
     
    Before I share any new projects I’m going to FINALLY finish showing you the rest of my clients house that my niece and I decorated last summer. Yes, folks I said last summer.  Why I haven’t shared the whole place yet? Well, it’s because I have too many ideas and one post leads to another and another and another, then 6 months go by and well, here we are now. :)
     
    I’ve already shared the zebra room, the sports room and the entry way. Today, I’m showing you my clients kitchen and breakfast nook:
     
      I used some old and some new decorations.
    My client and I shopped together to pick up the new items.  Most of the new stuff in here is from Homegoods, Pier One, Real Deals or Ross.
    The plaques above the cabinets came from Homegoods.
    This side is existing décor that my client had, which is all from Homegoods too.
    More above the cabinets.
    An artificial floral arrangement from Real Deals.  I just popped the arrangement into an existing vase.
    The buffet table is from Pier One. The clock, lamps and greens were pieces that my client already had.
    The table and chairs are again from Pier One.  My clients home was a model home before she moved in. The builder had the table and chairs as part of the staging and my client purchased the set from the builder.
    8
    Guess what the centerpiece table covering is made from? It was a shower curtain on super sale clearance that I found at Ross.  I think it was a couple of bucks or so.  I simply cut it down and sewed the edges.  Do you have material, a curtain or an old shower curtain just sitting in a closet or cupboard?  Why not see what you can whip up with it. 

    Here’s the before and after’s together:
    It’s pretty cool what a little décor arranging can do and how it can make a home feel cozy and comfy.  Don’t you think?

    Be sure and come back soon to see the living room photo’s of this home.  There’s an awesome clock in the living room that you just HAVE to see and a person could make it if you’re feeling crafty.

    May you be a little inspired!
    Until next time,

    All-In-One Family Planner

    I’m beyond excited to introduce a brand new printable package that’s now available in the Shop.

    It’s the All-in-One Family Planner. All you have to do is print the 24 pages, pop some holes into the pages, place into a binder and you’ve got complete organization for your family.  The great thing about this printable package is that you can print the pages as many times as needed.  (As always my printables are for personal use only.)

    I’ve created the pages and put them in a binder for my own use.  It’s so awesome to have it all in one place.  I’m loving this setup and I’m loving the peace of mind that comes along with feeling like things are becoming a little more organized.

    Here’s my family planner:
    I just used an old 2 inch binder that I had kicking around.  Inserted the cover page…
    and bought a couple packs of these pocket dividers to separate the sections.  I wanted the pockets to hold extra paperwork without having to punch holes in them, like my bills, medical receipts for tax purposes, etc.
    The dividers come with tabs that you can print on, so I did just that and labeled each section.
    :)
    Included in the All-In-One Family Planner printable package is a cover page and a yearly calendar (12 total pages.)
    You also get the peek into the week printable.
    and the special dates to remember page to keep track of those birthdays, anniversaries, etc.
    Next up is the To Do List.  This is a necessity in my home. I have to write everything down or I WILL forget it.  There is just way too much stuff to remember in life and I’m convinced that I lost more and more of my memory with each child that I’ve had ;)
    Also included is a meal planning chart,
    a red grocery shopping list. (I’ve been using this list for quite a few months now and I’m telling you, it makes grocery shopping SO much easier!)
    There’s a freezer inventory list.  This one I’m super excited about, because I’ve been on a ‘make ahead freezer meal’ kick lately and it’s so easy to keep track of all those meals.  In the morning, I simply look at my list, rather than go to the freezer and dig through them all.
    Then there’s a contact list to keep track of all important addresses and phone numbers.
    A monthly budget form is also included.  You may remember seeing my post titled Bill Organizing, which is where I showed you how I organize my bills and the process in which I pay them.  My process is the same, my binder is just updated to this one.
    I still paperclip the actual bills behind this form. 
    I have two sections marked monthly bills.  One for Bills-this Month and one for Bills-next Month.  I’ve printed the monthly budget forms for the rest of the year too and they go in the section marked bills for next month, again paper-clipping any paper bills to each page.  It works for me.
    Then there is a Medical Payment Tracker.  This is to keep track of all medical payments that are made throughout the year and is for tax purposes.  This is simply my version that works for me.  I keep all the receipts and attach those behind the form as well and slip that into the pocket.
    Next up is the notes from home printable page that I created.  There are three notes per     8.5 x 11 page.  Simply print and cut out and store in your family planner binder.
    You know how it is on busy school mornings, when your about to send your kiddo’s off to school and oh yeah, you forgot that you need to pick them up for an appointment today.  Simply grab a note from home, write a little message to the teacher and have your little one bring this in to their teacher.

    Or jot a little thank you or thinking of you message to a family or friend, pop it into a standard #10 envelope and mail it off.  These are super convenient which is totally what I like.
    and last, but certainly not least, is the Event Planning Checklist.  This form works so great to stay organized while planning a party, bridal shower, baby shower or any other type of event.  I’ve used this form multiple times now and have loved it.
    Again, the All-in-One Family Planner has a total of 24 printable pages!

    Here’s a breakdown of what you get:
    • Planner Cover Page
    • 2012 Calendar (12 total pages)
    • Peek into the Week
    • Special Dates to Remember
    • To Do List
    • Meal Planning Chart
    • Red Grocery List
    • Freezer Inventory List
    • Contact List
    • Monthly Budget Form
    • Medical Payment Tracker
    • Notes From Home
    • Event Planning Checklist

    Click on the links above to be directed to each separate page in my shop.


    So if you want to get those papers in order, this is a great start to a brand new organized 2012!

    Get your All-in-One Family Planner printable package today and begin your way to a more organized you.
     
    May you be a little inspired!
