When I got married, Etsy was an invaluable resource for me. They have an alchemy section where you can include your request and people will place bids to do the work (hint: cheaper does not always equal better). I think it is a great resource and marketplace. Most recently, I was looking for a “Home, Sweet Home” sign and came across so many lovely designs. Here are my top ten.

Do you shop or sell on Etsy? What has been your Etsy experience? Do you have a Home, Sweet Home sign?

30 Ways to Bring More Green Into Your Home

I’ve never intentionally set out to use green in my home decor choices. I think it’s a lovely color with a variety of shades, but it’s never been at the top of my list. When I think about it, I probably have just a handful of items in my home that are green (not counting the green jade buddhas). However, after seeing Oh Joy’s studio makeover with the gorgeous emerald green sofa and mint green Smeg fridge, I’ve had a change of heart. I did some searching and found other lovely ways to decorate a home with green that I’d like to share below. Are you a fan of green? Is it one of your top choices when it comes to home decor?

Home Design: Finding The Perfect Hardwood Floors

When I was a little girl, I would often go through one of my mother’s catalogs and pick and choose my dream home furnishings or designs. I shudder at the thought of some of my choices back then. I’ve lived in so many homes and have done so many renovations and have gone through so many design options, that I feel like a have a good grasp of what I really love and how I’d love my “forever” home to look like.

Home design and renovation can be both exhilarating and exhausting, but I still love it none the less. There are just so many choices out there. Take flooring for example, there’s carpet (our current situation), hardwood, concrete, tile, etc. etc. etc. My favorite is definitely hardwood and I am leaning towards the maple variety in a color that is not too dark and not too light. I’ve rounded some examples for when the time comes for us to move into our “forever” home. Have you done any home design/renovations? What is your favorite type of flooring?
