Affordable Block Printed Fabrics


It's no secret that John Robshaw has the most amazing textiles.
His fabrics are incredible. 
Completely drool worthy actually.


I can't get enough of his pillows too.
Every single one of them!



Unfortunately the pillows and fabrics are way out of my price range.
One day right?

Until then, I have rounded up some affordable block print and block print inspired fabrics!
They are not John Robshaw but I think they could do the trick!


1.2.3.4.5.6.7.8.9.10.11.12

Are you lusting after block print fabrics too?
I just can't get enough.

Cottage Chic Home Tour


Today I am excited to share the home of Irene from Life & Lovely.
Her home is a beautiful combination of comfort and chic. It isn't always easy to marry those two styles, but I think she has done such a fantastic job!
She also has a love for blue...clearly we would get along well!

















Her home feels perfectly put together yet also so inviting.
I love it.

You can find Irene over at Life & Lovely as well as on Instagram!

My New Coffee Table: Let's Vote!


This weekend my hubby and I celebrated our 9th anniversary!
He spoiled me with this cow hide ottoman, which I love! Any gift for my home is a win in my book.

We have it sitting in our family room for now, but it really just isn't right.
I have the perfect spot for it in my kids room, so it will be moving there shortly.


I desperately need a coffee table and/or some ottomans.
I've been working hard on my DIY pillows (which I will share later this week) and now it's time to address the rest of the space.

Since I added some color/pattern in the pillows,  I really an ottoman that adds a little texture would be perfect.

I am attracted to wood, metal, and leather. Of course budget is a concern, so I have rounded up a few affordable options.



6. Moroccan Gold Pouf: $89.04


Let's take a vote! 
Which one would you choose?

DIY Headboard & Mini Master Bedroom Reveal!


I have finally made some progress on my master bedroom.
I still have lots of projects on my to-do list, but things are starting to slowly come together.

My budget is very small, so DIY projects are a must!
I am super excited about my DIY spotted headboard, I really think it turned out great!



I purchased the dalmation fabric from Tonic Living. It is only $11.95/yard which is such a great price. Tonic Living is my go-to online store for affordable fabric. They also just happen to be a Canadian based company (woot woot) but ship to the US daily!

This fabric is perfect for a headboard since the pattern can be placed in either direction. I only needed 1.5 yards (for a queen) which made it super affordable too.


I love how simple, crisp, and full of personality this fabric is!


Plus, I can never say no to black & white.


The pillows were a labor of love too. I'll share more about them next week!
If you follow me on Instagram, I've been sharing updates as I go along.


So far I have spent just under $225.00 which includes my nightstands, headboard, pillows, and accessories! Not bad right?


I kept things super simple in regards to making the headboard. For a queen you need:

1.5 yards of fabric
3 yards of batting (use coupon at JoAnn's) 
4 x 8 sheet of plywood (cut to size at Home Depot)
Staples & Staple gun

Step 1: Wrap batting (2 layers) & staple.


Step 2: Lay out fabric.


Step 3: Staple fabric (I start from the middle and work my way out).


Super simple & inexpensive!

Tonic Living is kindly offering 10% off to all my readers! Use the coupon code DANIELLE10 at check-out to activate the discount!


So what do you think? Do you like my new look?

Warm & Welcoming Home Tour!



There is no better way to start a Wednesday than with a warm and welcoming home tour.
Katja from Shift Ctrl Art is one talented lady. Her home transformation is really something else. Her home is filled with lots of texture, natural materials, and pops of color.

















I just want to grab a cup of hot chocolate and cuddle-up in that family room!
I love those deep tufted leather sofas.

I highly recommend you head on over to Shift Ctrl Art to see all the before and afters! So inspiring. You can also follow Katja on Instagram here.
