As we’re adding the last few touches to the new studio, I knew I wanted to add a simple pop of color on the wall near the kitchenette area. It was a little too plain to leave it empty, but I wanted to keep it simple since the kitchen shelves already have so much going on with them. To create a little nod to kitchen ingredients and staying on trend with the busy patterns and colors that are popping up everywhere, I made this DIY printable fruit wall art.
I was able to create really fun and quirky fruit photos by scanning them with our new Sprout, which would have been nearly impossible (or super, super time consuming!) without it. Since I know not everyone has access to a Sprout we’ve created several different sized downloads for you to save and print to have one of your own!
Last weekend we made a quick drive to Austin for a friend’s wedding and decided to go a day early so we could visit a few places we’ve been wanting to go. It seems like every time I actually get a chance to break away long enough to make it to Austin, it’s always for work or just for passing through in a hurry, so we were determined to cram in as many cute places as we could with 24 hours in Austin, Texas this trip.
We stayed at W Austin and it was the perfect central location for getting to and from lots of different places to shop and eat in town. If it’s at all an option for you to get a city view suite there, I totally recommend it! I almost passed out from happiness when I saw the oversized tub that looks out on the city. I swear it was closest thing I’ll ever get to having my own personal infinite bathtub…
I personally love the #shelfie concept much more than the #selfie trend, so to support the movement, I’m sharing this DIY mini hexagon marble wall clock for more photogenic shelfies across the world. I know, I know, you can thank me later. In the meantime. let me just apologize to you for the incessant use of marble tiles in every other DIY lately. I have a slight addiction.
But seriously, they really do look good on just about everything: Shelves, desks, countertops, and even the dinner table. They’re basically your new best decor friend…

Well folks, the time has come! We’re finally kicking off the 2015 events in the new studio and I’m super excited to be teaching our first home decor DIY workshop with my lovely friend Brittni Mehlhoff on March 28th!
We’ll be teaching you how to make five different home decor projects with some of our favorite brands like West Elm, Color Cord, and Decor Art to take home, plus we have a killer goodie bag with even more home decor pretties to help you freshen up for Spring! As always, there will be plenty of photo-ops, sweets, and even lunch will be on us (we had to make a day of it, you know!). You can buy your ticket right here!
While you grab a friend for that, Jared and I are currently headed to Florida to visit my family for a bit and I’m super relieved to have absolutely no plans for a week. I have lots planned for you around here though, don’t worry! Be sure to follow along on Instagram for daily happenings behind the scenes!
