Light and airy pastels are my favorite way to welcome springtime!  The darling Novogratz Vintage Tufted Sofa Sleeper was the perfect statement piece for my living room.   This elegant design is available in several popping colors like pink, green, and burgundy.  They are all stunning, but the soft pink my immediate favorite.  Not only does this this sofa feature soft, velvety fabric, but it adjusts to accommodate different positions.  This sofa is truly the perfect combination of vintage and contemporary.  It's as fun as it is stylish!  I love the clean and simple look that the Novogratz Vintage Tufted Sofa Sleeper provided.  As an added bonus, it easily reclines to a sleeping position providing an space for overnight guests.  I placed the sofa beneath my Fredrick Mantel which I painted with Annie Sloan chalk paint.  The topiary set helped to pull in the greens from the Aurora Radiance area rug.  The Gather sign from Walls of Wisdom was purchased as a print and framed myself.  I tossed on a few linen throw pillows for a finishing touch.  




The Novogratz Vintage Tufted Sofa Sleeper has become my favorite place to relax with a cup of coffee and Magnolia Journal.  The velvety-soft fabric  makes everyday feel a bit more luxurious.


Miss Cupcake was beyond excited with the coordinating Novagratz chair. This comfortable and stylish armchair helped pull together the contemporary vintage style in our living room. The gorgeous details include Victorian style wooden legs and slim sloped arms for a refined look.



I am also in the process of creating a coastal farmhouse inspired bedroom.  
While the decor is far from complete, I wanted to share a tiny glimpse into our beachy room. 




The moment I spotted this DHP Manila Metal Bed I knew it would be ideal for this decor project.  This piece is contemporary yet classic.  The white finish on this bed is gorgeous and adds contrast to some of the natural wood pieces in the room.  The simple rail design and high profile headboard add a touch of elegance.  The quality of this solid metal bed is outstanding.  This bed includes metal slats and supporting legs.  I was initially nervous about how the slats would hold up, but I was pleasantly surprised by how sturdy this bed feels.



The headboard on this  DHP Manila Metal Bed is tall enough to provide support when setting up in bed and looks great with pillows.   The simple details look fantastic with the coastal decor and truly pull the entire room together.  Our old mattress was uncomfortable and stained from a coffee spill (oopsy!) so we decided to upgrade to a 14" Encased Coil & Memory Foam Signature Sleep Mattress. This gel infused Memory Foam mattress allows airflow while molding to the body's natural shape.  It is oh-so-cozy and looks gorgeous on our bed.



This was my first experience with a mattress in a box, and I had no idea what to expect when it arrived.  Despite my dear hubby's apprehension about the mattress dramatically popping out at him when he opened the box, the instructions where straightforward and the processes was uneventful (no dramatic popping occurred).  I loved the convenience of having the mattress delivered in a box.  It was the perfect way to finish the DHP Manila Metal Bed, and there was no need for a box spring.   This Signature Sleep Mattress is incredibly comfortable, and I expect it to last for years to come. 


Now all I have to do is get Miss Cupcake out of the bed so I can get some much needed sleep.

One of my health goals this year was to drink more water. The OCUP Smart Cup from Apollo Box is making it easy for me to stay hydrated.  Apollo Box is an online shopping platform that celebrates the act of discovery.

The OCUP Smart Cup vibrates and LED lights to provide a gentle reminder to drink at present times or amounts.  This makes it easy for me to remember to keep drinking.  One of my favorite feature of this cup is the warm function.  This can be used to warm my hands while drinking cold drinks or to keep warm drinks at the optimal temperature.  I can even brew tea right in my OCUP Smart Cup. The current temperature is also displayed.

Family is truly a treasure!
There are moments when I barely believe how incredibly blessed I am to have these two in my life. We recently went out in coordinating outfits (yes, we are that cheesy family)! Miss Cupcake wore a darling Nautica Tulle Dress with Flocked Dots.  She loved twirling in this little dress and looked like a princess!  My incredibly handsome hubby wore a Goodthreads slim-fit chambray shirt and cable knit sweater.  

My dress was from eShakti.  This fun and affordable website offers both style and fit customization from women from sizes 0 to 36.  They truly have the perfect dress for everyone.   All dresses on the website can be easily customized at no extra charge to meet your preferences.  The sleeve and hem length were customized.  I added a Jane Stone statement necklace for a fun pop of color.







Little Box Signs "HOME"


The moment I laid eyes on this darling "HOME" sign from Little Box Signs I knew it needed a place in my living room.  I have been striving to create a cozy and inviting space for my family and friends to gather, and I loved this simple piece.  This quality distressed wooden sign is unique and perfect for the slow process of transforming to modern farmhouse decor in my home.  The green vine "O" is the finishing touch that makes this sign unique and rustic.

Little Box Signs offers the most adorable hand painted wooden signs.  I truly adore everything in this shop.  These signs are a gorgeous and affordable way to create a cozy and personalized atmosphere in any home.



I placed this sign above my DIY Multipanel Mirror and Convenience Concepts French Country Hall Table.  This little entry table is adorable, and is the perfect size for the small space that I have in my living room.  Each season/holiday Miss Cupcake and I enjoy changing the decor.  The large basket from Target fit perfectly on the bottom.


With the arrival of spring quickly approaching I wanted to incorporate cotton stems into my decor.  I had seen these on Fixer Upper and began looking for the perfect cotton stems.  After weeks of searching, I finally found these lovelies at Kirkland's for $7.99 per stem!  I may or may not have done a happy dance on the way back to the car.  I placed them in a vase/watering can that I found at Target a few months back.




Clean Dezign Canister Set




Remember the perfect bread box that I found a few months back?  It needed to be small enough to keep on my rather limited counter space and large enough to be functional.  The moment I spotted this Clean Dezign Bread Box I knew it was what I wanted.  I was beyond excited when I noticed the matching three piece Clean Dezign Bamboo Fiber Kitchen Canister set.  Just like the bread box, these canisters are made out of a unique material called BAMBOO FIBER which is hard, durable, light weight and eco friendly.



I love the simple, clean appearance of these canisters on my kitchen counter.  I ended up using the largest canister to hold my wooden utensils.  The other canisters hold nuts and other snacks.  The airtight seal keeps the food inside fresh.  These Bamboo Fiber Kitchen Canisters are so perfect for storage that I plan to purchase an additional set for inside the cupboard.

"Home: Wherever I am with you."



I feel incredibly blessed to have spent another fabulous year with Miss Cupcake and my dear hubby. Being together is truly what makes our little house feel like a home.  This gorgeous canvas from Z Create Design states it perfectly:  "Home: Wherever I am with you."  Sometimes home is not a place, but the people you share your life with.  This definition of home adds a vintage and minimalist touch to our home.  It fits in perfect with our modern coastal farmhouse decor.  This lovely 24" X 16" piece is printed on museum quality artist's canvas and finished with a rustic wooden frame.  It is simply stunning!


A few months ago I added these romantic "Mr & Mrs" wall letters from ZCreateDesign to our master bedroom.  They fit perfectly with minimalist decor.  We hung these gorgeous letters over our bed, but they are versatile enough to look fabulous anywhere!  These are so classic and give our room a cozy and personalized feel.  If you are planning a wedding or just want extra special decor for you home ZCreateDesign is truly your one-stop shop.  They have DIY options for almost everything in their store!









What I Wore || Little Red Holiday Dress



This little red dress from Me&City is perfect for holiday parties or any day when you want to add a fun pop of color.  The slim fitted top and bubble skirt make this dress unique and flattering.  The moment I put this dress on I felt like it was tailored especially for me.  It fit perfectly!  I love the high round neckline and the exposed back zipper.  The 3/4 length sleeves make this dress practical all year long.  It can be worn alone in the warmer months or paired with tights in the cooler months.  I plan to wear this for Christmas, Valentine's Day, and many more occasions.  


For the winter months or cool evenings, this classy dress can also be layered with a jacket.  I recently wore it with an adorable Me&City embellished bomber jacket.  This jacket is incredibly soft and warm.  The rivet detailing along the trendy standing collar and convenient front pockets make this a fun and versatile addition to any wardrobe.  I know I will be wearing this with my dresses, jeans, and everything in between.  It goes with everything!


This was my first experience with Me&City apparel, and I was quite impressed with the quality of this dress and jacket.  I will certainly be purchasing from this brand again in the future.
