Get the Scoop: Favorite Paint Colors {Part One}

Thistlewood Farms Dining Room Painted in SW Anonymous

You may recall the bloggers' favorite paint colors series I hosted two summers ago. It actually doesn't surprise me that it continues to be one of the most popular series on the blog of all time. I mean, paint is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to transform a space in very little time. Yet, selecting just the right color for a space can be so daunting. If you've ever had paint color swatches taped to your walls for weeks and still … [Read more...]

Living Room Color Palette 3 Ways

Blue and White Living Room Mood Board | Satori Design for Living E-Design Project

A couple of weeks ago, I finished up a living room e-design that I'm finally getting around to sharing with you. Starting with a freshly painted room in Revere Pewter (Benjamin Moore's soft greige), as well as beige wall-to-wall carpet, my client's wishes were to have a fresh and pretty, modern country living room to enjoy with her dog at the end of a long work day. Such a fun project to work on! We decided to keep the furniture neutral for … [Read more...]

Bedroom Area Rug Options {Reader Question}

Blue and Orange Bedroom with Sisal Area Rug

A couple weeks ago, I opened up the Satori Facebook page for another round of reader questions. I'm always curious to see what decorating dilemmas are on your mind. As in the past, I won’t be able to answer all of the questions today, but will try my best to get to as many of them as possible in upcoming blog posts. Today, I'm focusing on bedroom area rugs... Small or Large Area Rug? Hi Shauna, I have a question about master bedroom a … [Read more...]

Summer Entertaining- Outdoor Oasis Party + Giveaway!

Outdoor Oasis Party

Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Pier 1 Imports. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating. As soon as the weather turns warm, we spend as much time outside as possible. I like to think of our backyard as an extension of the rest of our house. It's an oasis where we can escape the busyness of life, take time to rejuvenate, and reconnect with … [Read more...]

Outdoor Decorating Projects for the Outdoor Extravaganza

Decorating for the Outdoor Extravaganza seemed to be a struggle for everyone this year. Many of us have had cold, rainy, sometimes snowy weather, and even a bit of hail. The grass is still patchy and some shrubs have just started to peek out. I'm not going to complain, though, since Kristin was dealing with fires where she lives in California last week! Yesterday, I shared what I've managed to pull together so far for our outdoor lounging … [Read more...]

Lounging Around: Our Outdoor Living Space

Outdoor Living Space with Lounge Area

Last July, we got most of the foundational pieces in place for our outdoor living space. However, when it came time to finish the decorating, most of the outdoor decor was picked over and I had to put the process on hold. This year, I decided to be ahead of the game and started picking up pieces when they first started arriving in stores. With seasonal items, I've learned it's best to nab them before they're gone.   Perhaps it was … [Read more...]

Spring Front Porch- Adding Cottage Charm + Giveaway!

Spring Front Porch- Adding Cottage Charm

Thank you to Balsam Hill for sponsoring today’s post in the spirit of Mother's Day. As always, opinions are 100% my own. Until last week, I wasn't sure if I was ever going to pull out my flip flops again. Winter had been hanging on ever so tightly, and the opportunity to do any outdoor spring decorating hadn't presented itself. By this time last year, we had our patio furniture out of storage and I had picked up quite a few plants from our lo … [Read more...]

DIY Roman Shade Using Spoonflower Fabric

Spoonflower Fabric Projects Collage

When we first moved into our current house more than 10 years ago, I had lofty ambitions to create custom window treatments for every room. I managed to sew drapery for our living room, kitchen, and dining room, and even sewed a roman shade for our bathroom. Then, the busyness of life got in the way and those plans came to a halt. For years, I've wanted a patterned roman shade in my office, but paying the hefty price for a custom one was … [Read more...]
