Dream Closet Inspiration, A Minimalist Approach

I used to have major closet envy every time I saw one of those HUGE walk-in closets on Pinterest. You know the ones, rows of shoes, racks of clothes, dripping with glittery accessories. After reorganizing my closet, I have a little less envy, and I’m more content with the things I do have. However, it can still be fun to dream about a closet so big, we can really call it a dressing room.  Read More

House Plants | Everything You Need to Know

I could not have lived with too many bare walls, so I got a little creative and did a couple of DIY art projects for the walls, and filled other spaces in with some big-box-store designs on the cheap.
