Gorgeous Nursery Inspiration

As we prepare to move once again in the coming months, I can’t help but start to dream about how I want to decorate again. I don’t even know where we will live or what the rooms will be like, yet I am totally decorating in my brain. I blame some of that on the fact that I have been checking out the new additions to the Evolur family. To refresh your memory, Evolur Baby is where I got all of the beautiful furniture for Zoey’s nursery. I am OBSESSED!

Recently, Evolur Baby announced the addition of the Aurora crib in a new Gold Dust finish and I just can’t even  handle how absolutely beautiful it is! It would be perfect for a little princess. To be entirely honest, I want the dressers for myself! I am love with that Gold Dust color and I think it could be paired well with just about anything. Just think about it with navy, magenta, black, or blush pink. I look at it and instantly want to start decorating! [Read more…]

Pink and Mustard Nursery Design: Zoey’s Nursery Reveal!

I have been so excited about Zoey’s nursery design. I have been planning it for months and I finally was able to finish it so I can share it with all of you! When I found out I was having another little girl, I saw a color design chart with pink, blush, mustard, and charcoal gray. I INSTANTLY fell in love with the color combination and knew I wanted to use those colors in my baby’s nursery.

Adding Color to a Space (without going overboard)

Color scares a lot of people. I am not afraid to admit that I was totally afraid of color for a long time. I grew up loving color and I think that my brightly colored bedrooms may have scared me for life as an adult because too much color would scare me like crazy! Thankfully neutral rooms are in style because I rocked that (and however else my mom would help me decorate) for a long time. Over the years, I came into my own style and realized that color isn’t as scary as I had originally thought. You don’t have to commit to painting an entire wall a bright color in order to introduce a good amount of color into a room.

Office Reveal: Kate Spade Bow Inspired

This post contains affiliate links.

Another move brings on another office space to design. I really missed leaving my old office. It was by far my favorite room in our townhouse, but I was excited to design another space in a new house. I wanted it to still feel like my old office in some ways, but a new space at the same time. I have always been in love with the Kate Spade bow print and wanted to use that as my inspiration for my office.

Office Makeover Reveal: Modern Girlie Details

First of all, I just want to say a big fat thank you for how much love my first little peek into my office reveal earlier this week. I am so glad that you all love it as much as I do! If you missed the first post that is all dedicated to my walls, check it out HERE.

Now to show you all of the little details about this space that make it great!

Modern Industrial Funky Room on www.girllovesglam.com

When you first walk in, your eyes are instantly drawn to this side table with the most delicious lamp you have ever seen in your entire life. This puppy came from none other than Lamps Plus. I have never seen more fabulous lighting options on one site than on Lamps Plus. It was really hard for me to choose between this smaller lamp and a big, fat lamp that looks like this one’s daddy, but I am glad I went with the smaller option because it doesn’t completely steal the show. It is the perfect accent. Speaking of accent, this little white ceramic box has a fun sentimental story with it and I just HAD to include it in this space. When we were first married, Dave took a college class where he got to paint this. He could have painted it any way he wanted to, but chose to paint it in a funky black and white design because he knew I was into that at the time. Well guess what? He knows me well because nearly 7 years later, I am still into that! I love that it can be included in this space because it is a little touch of his style in here too. Even though the rest of it screams GIRL! That vase has also been in the family for a while. I found that gem long ago, but nearly every home decor store carries very similar pieces now.

My pretty business cards

I was given business cards by Oubly, but was not compensated in any other way for this post.

Remember when my blog suddenly looked super legit because of how great my new design is? Well, I couldn’t just have my site looking great without having an awesome business card too! That is why I had my business cards designed for me to match my pretty new blog design!

Functional Decor in my Living Room

This is a sponsored post by Kleenex Brand. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

Living Room Makeover Details

The living room makeover is finally complete! I can’t wait to show you all of the details! Today, we’re talking functional pieces in my living room. While it is fun to have pieces in a room that are purely decorative like the ones pictured above, it is important to have pieces in a room that really serve a function. Since we’re focusing on the photo above, let’s take a minute to talk about it. The pieces on this self are purely decorative, but the shelf itself is much more of a functional piece than you would think by just looking at this photo. What you don’t see, is that on the bottom shelf, you can find two cute boxes that are filled to the brim with toys. This is a perfect way to bring decorative pieces, like cute boxes and a shelf together to create something functional. For me, those items help keep the toys cleaned up, while still keeping them very accessible for my toddler.

Living Room Curtains

The next functional decor I’m focusing on? Curtains! After going three weeks without curtains, I have grown to realize just how important curtains really are. Not only do they really add to the overall look, but they serve a lot of purpose too! I had no idea how much I would feel like a sitting duck in a big room without curtains! Nights were sometimes a little creepy without any curtains and I am happy to report that the curtains are where they belong and we can now have privacy again!

While you are talking about functional decor, you can’t skip the mention of furniture. Of course furniture is a crucial part of a living room and serves a lot of function, but I have already talked about my love for my couches and that is a little too obvious for this discussion. I want to talk about a few that might be a little less obvious.

Functional Home Decor

For my table, I knew I would want to keep things pretty simple because the table top is often used for coloring, Legos, and princesses. I didn’t want to put any sort of a centerpiece that would get in the way of toys. I also didn’t want to just leave the table bare. I put my decorative coasters on the table so they would be handy, right where I would need them. They are decorative and functional so I didn’t feel like I was wasting any space by putting them there. They fit right in with the decor and help add a little splash of color to the table.

Living Room Details with Kleenex Expressions

I knew the coasters couldn’t just sit on the table all by themselves, but I wanted to still have some sort of function with any other pieces I would be putting on there too. I was so excited when I found out that Kleenex had their Kleenex Expressions line because I was able to put a box of tissues on the table without it totally looking out of place. This couldn’t be a more perfect decoration for my family too. My husband actually told me last week that he doesn’t know anyone who blows their nose more than I do. I get seasonal allergies, but not just during the Spring and Fall! I actually get them worst during the Winter! Boo! Sadly, I am pretty sure I handed down that genetic gift to my toddler who has now already mastered the art of nose blowing at the young age of two. This Kleenex box is really the perfect functional decor piece for our space because it goes perfectly with the decor and really does serve a major purpose in our family.

Kleenex is turning 90 this year and they are celebrating by coming out with all of these fabulous runway inspired styles for your home! As part of their celebration, they are sending one lucky Kleenex fan to NYC to meet a famous designer and to go on a $5,000 NYC shopping spree! Just follow this link HERE and play the game, “Catwalk or Kleenex?” to get you automatically entered! Be sure to visit their site and play the game, because it helps get me a chance to go to NYC too! Maybe we could party it up together?

Who’s excited to see the rest of my living room details? More to come on Monday!
