    Refresh for Fall + a Gallery Wall

    Last time we chatted about my laundry room, it looked something like this: It was clean, full of bright-colored cheer, and had just survived some serious time in the DIY beauty shop (cabinet makeover, gallery wall updates, organization updates & a fresh paint job).

    A couple of weeks ago, I gave you guys a sneak peek of this gorgeous ampersand marquee sign. We placed this little gem near our picture display at our bridal shower, and it looked gorgeous all lit up by the fireplace. With the shower behind us, I wanted to find a way to incorporate this

    It seems like our master bedroom is just about done and decorated. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll forever be tweaking things here and there…but for now, our cozy master bedroom is staying as is!

    Adorable Art for an Affordable Price

    Yesterday was a pretty big day here on the ol’ Playbook. I openly admitted to the blog world that I have converted & officially joined Team Curtains (any teammates?!).

    I’m chugging along with our master bedroom decorating plan. Last time we chatted about the space, I showed you guys the oh-so-comfy Moroccan rug we added to the room.
