Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley September 2, 2017

Happy Labor Day weekend friends! So many people I know took off to go somewhere but I’m just relaxing at home, doing little organizing projects around the house and trimming back my overgrown garden.

As much as I love an adventure somewhere new, I also relish quite days spent at home just being lost in my own thoughts. This is one of those weekends. Favorite links from the week:


This office makeover is lovely.

The best article I’ve seen in some time on blue paint colors.

I’m so impressed with Stacy’s DIY bathroom vanity.

Beautiful staircases, swoon.

Eye candy: this modern farmhouse tour.

Interior design styles by state.

How to properly pour a beer.

Welcome fall with this crockpot applesauce.

How cool, this photo shoot of a unique junior justice league.

Creative ways to use travel photos.

**My apologies to email subscribers if links aren’t working, I’m still investigating why, thanks for your patience!

Removable Wallpaper Favorites

By Kate Riley August 31, 2017

I almost finished my powder room and discovered I was one strip of wallpaper short to complete the makeover, oh no! I ordered more and will finish that space when it arrives. I’m loving the new look and I can’t wait to share how great the waves wallpaper looks in that space.

The paper I used was prepasted, but for those that are nervous about pasted varieties, the removable peel and stick wallpapers are the best thing ever. I wrote a post last summer featuring 20 favorite removable wallpapers, they go up easy and are just as simple to remove when you’re done with the look. Also perfect for renters! A few more favorites I found in a recent search:



blue watercolor




black & white floral


dreams smoke


woodland ebony


bloc (multiple colors)


blush floral


boho scallop


orange crush


pink hues marbleized



fine point floral


boho floral


hollyhock (multiple colors)


fern lime



With so much suffering happening in the wake of Harvey, it feels a bit uncomfortable to blog about home decor. There are many ways to help, I donated to the Houston Food Bank, you can also help by contributing here.
