The decor for this Airbnb (House on 5th) is ah-ma-zing!

I love love love the mixture of rustic and contemporary styles, as well as the neutral color palette that the homeowners decided to go with. Also, it boasts plenty of room and is walking distance to lots of things in Edmond (an Oklahoma City suburb) and is a short drive away to downtown Oklahoma City.

This Airbnb comes highly recommended, so be sure to check it out whenever you’re in the area!

Home Envy: Colorful Kitchens

Have any of y’all noticed that when you look for a new place to live, you can really see housing trends over the years as you go from one place to another?

For some reason, I’ve never been the biggest fan of light wood grain cabinets or even white cabinets as both just seemed kind of “country” to me. I’ve always loved the idea of a darker shade or even a colored cabinet and lucky for me they are trending right now. I also love quartz cabinets but man those are hard to find with my budget! (A girl can dream….)

What do you automatically think of when you envision your dream kitchen? As said previously, I think of quartz cabinets, colored cabinets, lots of counter space, and a double oven to fit my cooking needs.

Home Envy: A Touch of Southwestern Flair

I don’t know if it’s due to having grown up in Texas or having visited my family in New Mexico over the years, but there’s always been something so inviting and cozy about a place that has some southwestern flair.

Right now I’m currently trying to find a place in the Houston area that sells reasonably priced serapes. I want to make some throw pillow covers for the couch out of the material, similar to what Brooklyn Decker did when she re-upholstered her chairs, as I think it’d add a nice punch of color to the space.

Have a good weekend y’all and stay dry!

Home Envy: HGTV Magazine’s Cover Look

Home Envy--HGTV Magazine Cover-2016

Honestly, when it comes to “me time” I’m such a glutton for a drink, some Wheat Thins, and my favorite HGTV shows. I love love love Fixer Upper and Property Brothers. The home transformations that they do honestly inspire me to have better decor than what I typically buy. Plus, I love to fantasize that one day they can renovate a home for me as well.

My love for HGTV shows transcends towards the HGTV Magazine, too. I usually just buy magazines every now and then at the store but with this one, it’s sent straight to me.

Lately, I’ve been looking into a non-neutral colored couch to invest in, so I’m glad that for the February issue brightly colored decor was featured. It’s really been inspiring me for when I get back to decorating my space again. Below are some of my favorites decor pieces I’ve been looking at, inspired by the HGTV magazine cover look.

Home Envy: Pink Walls

Blush has officially become the new “it” neutral in my book. Not only can it be on my nails, my lips, and in my closet but also on my walls! Well not my walls per se but it could if I owned a home.

I honestly do love how it not only has become a neutral, as it compliments such a range of shades but also modernizes a room. Of course, it also makes a space feel a bit more feminine as well as airy and crisp.

So, verdict time. Yay or nay to pink walls?

Home Envy: Pops of Color

I’ve always gravitated towards rich, earthy tones and black and white photos when it comes to decorating a living area. Exhibit A: My last apartment consisted of a grey couch, chevron fur b/w print throw pillow, Audrey Hepburn b/w throw pillow, a few prints on the wall, and a small side table with a few books laid on top.

I always thought taking a minimalistic approach to design was best. Wrong. It was the safest and required the least amount of thought.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m still all about being minimalist; however, my color palette has definitely expanded since I decorated my last apartment.

Home Envy: Risky Kitchens

I love kitchens that break away from the norm! Quartz or butcher block countertops (instead of granite), subway tile, two toned countertops, and pendant lighting honestly make me feel a bit giddy. And I love the idea of putting artwork into your kitchen or even painting one of the walls a dark color to add some drama.
