Incorporating Pastels into your Home

Lilac, baby pinks and baby blue’s aren’t just for children anymore. These soft and gentle hues can make such an impact in any room.  Incorporating them as an accent or a bright statement piece. While searching I found some pretty interesting pieced available for purchase in their shop.

1. Distressed wood plank wall paper.  This would create a fantastic accent wall in a nursery or home office!

2. Touch of color, Storage and Functionality.  This piece would work great as a bench in a mudroom paired with a few pillows.  Or a coffee table in your living room!
3. Color with lighting? Genius, I love the fact that lighting these days are so versatile and come in various colors.

4. Another type of lighting, the light wood with hombre pastel. Very modern look.

5. This steel stackable chair we actually have in our head office in a brushed nickel color.  I have seen them before in a bold red, who knew they came in all sorts of soft pastels!

6. This is a whole other take on wall mount lighting.  Can you say unique?  Have this installed over a reading chair or a corner with your chez lounge.
7. This light wooden framed chair features a zig-zag of linear angled wood, which creates a durable and solid frame.  Both the seat and the back cushions are made with medium density foam, which makes them extremely comfortable.
Some fantastic ideas on how to incorporate pastels into your home décor.  I hope this has inspired you to think outside the box when it comes to finishing your home.

Outdoor Looks

The weather is finally warming up and with that our outdoor patio looks are staring to come together.  Today I share some of my favorite backyard patio looks with you.


This is such a simple look, by just adding a pop of color with a few outdoor pillows.  Comfort and Style!


Simple Neutral and Rustic, you cant go wrong there.  I love the use of the wine barrels  as end tables.


Of course the very much On-Trend Black and white.  Mixing it with greens and neutrals creates a nice outdoor balance.


Bright and Colorful, Mixing different accent pieces along with different prints and colors from all over the color wheel.


Love the curtains this helps create a very relaxing atmosphere, the calming blues and greens brighten up the space perfectly. Creating that serene backyard getaway look.

How High Should Your TV Be?

Mounting A Television

Ever wonder how high you should be mounting your TV?

Well, if you haven’t you really should consider taking a look and seeing if your TV is mounted correctly.  If your television is mounted to high you might end up with regrets and literally a pain in your neck!

So when you‘re considering only the ideal height to place your TV.  You should include the height of the typical viewer and the size of the television itself.

You can measure your television and do the math yourself.  However the typical viewer seated on a sofa would typically be 42″ off the floor.  If the television will only be used for viewing seated on a sofa, that is 12ft away from the television.  Either a 55″ or 60 ” would work in that space.  However larger television have also been used.

Let’s say you select a 60-inch television. A 60-inch television is about 32 inches high, meaning the center of the screen will be at 16 inches from the bottom of the television. Most sofa seating heights are close to 18 inches above the floor, and eye level for an adult seated in a relaxed manner is about 24 inches above the seat.

That puts the center-of-television height for a typical seated viewer at 42 inches (18 inches + 24 inches). So that 60-inch television should be installed with the bottom of the screen at 26 inches above the floor.

Hope this post has helped you achieve a more comfortable atmosphere for relaxing and watching TV.
