Have you ever come across a home that is so inherently you that you can’t help but fall madly in love with it? The gorgeous Seattle abode that I’m sharing in today’s bohemian home tour is that property for me. I could pack up my belongings, move right in and be totally and completely comfortable in this carefree, gorgeously appointed home. I’ll venture a guess that you might all agree with me after viewing the rest of it. It’s hard not to fall head over heels in love with this one.
In anticipation of my trip to London later this year (I’m a little excited, okay?), I’m immersing myself in all things British. What better way to add a bit of the UK to our day than with a fabulous London home tour? The gorgeous home I’m sharing with you today is equal parts refined and quirky. It’s historical, it’s vibrant, it’s endearing, and it has personality to spare.
I am overjoyed to share some very exciting news with you all today. A do-it-yourself project that I completed last year, my DIY Anthropologie Mirrors, has been featured in a roundup of Anthropologie-inspired DIYs by Better Homes & Gardens!
As a longtime fan of Better Homes & Gardens, being included in this group of fantastic projects is nothing short of a dream. Growing up I used to pour over my mother’s copies of the magazine, visualizing and planning my future home. In fact, I still have multiple bound notebooks worth of inspiration from BHG that I collected long before Pinterest came into existence in my childhood bedroom. To now be even the tiniest part connected to the publication feels surreal.
If you have a moment, please check out the entire roundup of fabulous DIYs at Better Homes & Gardens. There are some truly awesome ideas included!
It’s no secret that I have a bit of an affinity for cute and practical storage (see exhibit A) so it should come as no surprise that tackling our kitchen’s lack of useful storage solutions was at the top of my priority list for our mini kitchen makeover. These DIY storage jars are the perfect answer to my storage woes, providing ample space for a few choice dry goods all the while adding a serious dose of style to our countertop at a budget friendly price (the entire project cost under $20!).
It has been quite a while since I shared my last flurry of DIY projects on Musings on Momentum and there is actually a very valid reason for the lull. You see, my husband and I have been casually looking for a new place closer to my office and I have therefore been having a hard time justifying doing any type of work on our current home. However, after discussing it with my husband, I have decided to go ahead and complete our mini kitchen makeover as previously scheduled. We both figure that we might as well make our kitchen as functional and enjoyable as possible during our (potential) final few months in our home.
Our current kitchen is brand new and gorgeous but is not my dream space. To start with, it’s rather closed off from the rest of our home. It doesn’t offer quite as much counter space or storage as I need and I’m therefore always having to pause during meal prep to clean and create more work space. This mini makeover is all about finding little ways to make the space better serve my needs.
The inspiration I’m sharing with you today is the driving force behind our upcoming mini kitchen makeover. It includes everything from practical storage solutions to a way to add additional work space to a small kitchen. The best part? The upcoming DIYs I have planned are going to cost a combined total of less than $100. Talk about getting bang for your buck.
