Bronson's room

I still have a ways to go in just about every room in this house. Most of the doors and trim in the upstairs bedrooms are still peach. I'll get there!
Here's a fun addition to Bronson's room. He has high vaulted ceilings which makes his room feel huge. We love it! We were contemplating on what to do with this huge blank wall above his bed. I didn't want to do another gallery wall here. It would take a lot of frames to fill the space. I thought of a world map. I love the colors in the maps, plus they're educational. I also that about wallpaper or doing an accent wall with paint and then maybe adding one to two picture ledges, but we have a picture ledge above his dresser already. Then I came across the French Bull wall decals. They are colorful, fun and Bronson loves cars!! Perfect. These decals are a great size to fill any large wall, or you can use half the town on one wall and the other half on another. We really love how they look and it's such a fun feeling when you walk in his room. He has since graduated to a twin bed. More Bronson room updates coming soon.

                                 In the meantime, here's more kids room wall inspiration for you.

A simple thing

I am writing this blog to share ideas, finds and inspiration. This post is about how I found some inexpensive art for my kitchen. We have so much going on in the backsplash that we can't do to much pattern. However, the other side of the kitchen could use texture and color.
At work, Yogaworks a month or so ago. We invited Good Eggs to come share and talk about their service. If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area and haven't heard of good eggs before, you must check them out!! They deliver organic Farmers Market meals, fruits, produce, fish, dairy and anything you can get at a Farmers Market to your front door! I personally look forward to visiting my local Farmer Market weekly, but this is a great shopping tool if you don't have the time to get to one.
Anyway, they came and set up a table with fresh organic foods they would deliver. They had these cute cards advertising their service. I grabbed a few to give to friends and help get the word out about their "at your door" service. I thought the graphics were simple and super cute!! I decided to frame them as art. Picked up a few Ikea frames in silver and bam. $6 art for my kitchen! Anyone can do this  with any colorful card or favorite calendar art. This is just a simple and fun way to make something unique for your space.
