Living Room Tour

Faux Longhorn (similar) | Console (similar) | Coffee Table (similar) | Large Abstract Painting (similar) | Couch (similar) | Faux Cowhide Pillows (similar) | Striped Poufs | Lamp (almost identical) Our living room is the HUB of the house! Whether we’re drinking coffee during an early weekday morning or watching SEC football on a Saturday, more often than not Mack and I can found on the couch in our living room. I saw an image on Pinterest the other day that stated how childhood punishments such as, being grounded {aka forced to stay home} and going to bed early, are now what dreams are made of. I couldn’t agree more as I am happiest when I am planted on this couch with Mack, Rebel and Tiger by my side. Best feeling in the entire world, I swear! I am sure many of you can relate. With a busy life, it’s great to decompress and there’s no better place to do just that than in your living room with the perfect candle burning. As previously mentioned in a few of my home posts, our house offers a very open concept but is just over 1,000 square feet! With a small space that flows, keeping the decor cohesive is […]

Three Steps to Organize Your Closet

3 Steps to Organize Your Closet

Acrylic Storage Bins | Felt Hangers | Three Tier Shoe Rack (similar) I swear that organization changes everything! Whether it be at work or at home, being organized is an asset as it saves time and energy. This past long weekend I went a little crazy and organized our entire house! It’s so funny that after a year of living here, I finally feel moved in! I did a huge overhaul of my closet and with just a few storage items the entire space was transformed. Although my closet is tiny, I have plenty of space as everything has a place! Here are my three steps to organize your closet: Uniform Hangers– When hanging clothes ensure you use the same style/color hangers for each item. I personally prefer the felt hangers in black as my items don’t slip. Furthermore, as much as I would love to use the blush pink felt hangers, I know they’d be impossible to match if I ever needed more. The uniformity of using the same hangers creates a seamless aesthetic when looking at all of your clothing items! Acrylic Storage Bins- These are a game changer! I used to have my clutches and scarves just […]

Dresser Update in 30 Minutes or Less

Dresser Update in 30 Minutes or Less

Manor House Knob | Bauble Knob | Shop all Knobs Before I start talking about a home project, I want to say that my thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Me and my sorority sisters, most all of which live in Texas, have a group text and the photos they shared throughout the weekend are heartbreaking. Here’s to hoping that this storm passes very soon. We all want our home to look like something out of Southern Living but likely don’t have the bank roll to purchase everything that covers those beautiful and perfect magazine spreads. I read a quote recently that stated, “Start with that you have not with what you want.” This quote, although in it’s original context has absolutely  nothing to do with home decor, applies to this little dresser of ours. When Mack and I purchased our home, it came fully furnished. If I am being totally honest, majority of it went to the furniture consignment store as it was a vacation rental before we purchased it. However, a few select pieces held their ground and one of those items was this dresser. You can see our full bedroom here, but as you can […]

Master Bedroom Tour

Master Bedroom Tour

Headboard | Duvet Cover | Alternative Down Comforter | Blush Quilt (similar) | Throw Pillows (similar) | Lamps (similar) | Nightstands | Storage Bench | Faux Silver Dear (similar) | Sunburst Mirror (similar) Bedtime is my favorite time. Hands down! You can see how I wind down after a long day in this post here, so I won’t delve into that much more. Our bedroom is so comfortable and cozy, even Rebel and Tiger couldn’t help but make an appearance in today’s post. They always snooze on our bed but any excuse to snap a pic these puppies and I’ll do it. Plus, if you follow me on Instagram, you may wonder why Tiger isn’t in my stories much. He literally won’t. sit. still. for anything! This was post-walk and a rare occasion when he actually laid down to rest. Anyways, when it came to decorating our bedroom, which was actually one of the first rooms to be completed, I wanted it to be simple and serene yet in line with our original vision for the house. If you’re new to my blog, the theme for our home is western chic of sorts with “cowboy” touches (think cowhides, faux taxidermy, etc.) in conjunction with a mix of gold […]

Patio Furniture Update

Patio Update

Converstation Set | Poufs | Pillows Big changes came to the Griffin household this weekend… we finally updated our patio furniture! Back in March, I shared this patio inspiration as we knew we wanted to invest in comfortable outdoor furniture to utilize our outdoor space. We are so happy with how it turned out! We decided on this simple conversation set (we got four chairs), bold pillows and striped poufs. We honestly sat outside all weekend and it was amazing! I mentioned in this dining room post that our home is pretty small yet perfect for us. With the ability to enjoy our patio, our home feels so much larger now! We feel like we literally extended the space. As we sat sipping cocktails on Saturday night, it was like our home took on a whole new world. Not to mention, Rebel and Tiger LOVE it! Unfortunately, this week greeted us with a tropical storm of sorts so for now, our crisp white pillows are indoors haha (#reallife). But we are just anxiously awaiting the next time we can sit out there and enjoy the fresh air and each others company. As our weekend came to a close on our patio, I said to Mack, […]

How to Create a Desk Nook

How to Create a Desk Nook

  Desk | Chair | Pillow | Computer | Agenda When we purchased our home, we downsized from what we had previously rented. We love it so much as it’s just enough space! At just about 1,300 square feet we are maxed out with just two bedrooms. With the absence of a designated office space, we had to get creative about how to situate a desk area in accordance with an open floor plan. Luckily, this little corner of our living room, previously occupied by additional seating, had the potential. Referred to as the “desk nook” this area is bright yet secluded and out of the way (well, as out of the way as it could be haha). Also, I really enjoy working here because Mack can work on the couch and we’re still in the same room! This area, although perhaps not in line with our décor parameters (see our dining room here), works for us. We wanted to have a little fun with the desk nook because we could! I found this painting at a local store and have never had art “speak to me” until I met this piece haha. It’s a little quirky yet modern with its stark […]

Dining Room Tour

Dining Table (similar) | Dining Chairs (similar) | Cowhide Rug (similar) | Buffet (similar) | Ginger Jars (similar) | Gold Urchin (similar) | Bar Cart (similar) | Acrylic Wine Holder | Books (here, here, here & here) | Candle I’ve learned that the best part of home ownership is not the home itself but rather the family and friends that can come gather, stay awhile and enjoy our space with us. Since moving in, both of our families have come to visit on a few occasions and although our home is on the smaller side, there’s always room for more! Our dining room is a space that enables those guests to sit and relax, enjoy a meal and just catch up. Also, this table is a place where Mack and I sit and catch up after work. With our busy, sometimes conflicting schedules, it’s a treat when we get to talk about our days over a meal at our dining room table! When it came time to decorate this space, we determined early on a few key pieces that we wanted it to include but had to take time to find and decide on what we liked best. In determining the […]

Spring Refresh at Home

Spring Refresh at Home

Blush Curtains | Boxwood Wreath | Welcome Mat | Pom Pom Pillow | Picture Frame | Blush Ikat Pillow | Pom Pom Basket Much like a closet that needs a quick refresh as the seasons change, our homes could use a mini update as well to welcome warmer temps! As the days grow longer, I find myself tucking away those faux fur blankets for lighter options, adding some subtle color to the nooks of our home and always update the front porch to offer a fresh hello! A few quick and easy additions to your home for spring time can really breath new life into any space! First, I plan to take action asap and update the wreath on our front door with this seasonal boxwood. We’ve had a monogrammed “G” hanging on our door for over two years so I want to try something new. Also, I am going to get a new welcome mat as our current one is very worn out (so much so that you can’t read what it says anymore). I am confident that these two simple updates will spruce our curb appeal! Next, I plan to bring some lighter elements into our guest bedroom! We […]

Spring Cleaning Tips

Spring Cleaning Tips

Did everyone have a good weekend? I feel totally refreshed this Monday and I am thankful for that! After a few weeks of an unrelenting schedule and a weekend trip to Miami, I was so glad to just be home this weekend. On Friday morning I had a few hours off and immediately replaced my workout with cleaning the house, naturally! I tend to clean the house top to bottom at least once a week (and we have some daily cleaning that we do as well to keep things tidy) but due to my schedule, it got away from me for an extended period of time. With April arriving, I thought what better time for a cleaning overhaul. I don’t know what it is about cleaning but it makes me feel relaxed yet very productive. I love the feeling of a clean house, especially at the start of a new month! Here’s what I did on Friday to start April off on the right clean foot. Focus on the floors first: I am sure there is some kind of flow-chart on Pinterest that shows you the correct order in which to clean your home. But for me, I always like to start […]

Patio Inspiration

Patio Inspiration

Outdoor String Lights | Striped Patio Set (under $500!) | Outdoor Rug | Spotted Pillow | Pineapple Pillow | Neutral Pillow (here & here) I mentioned in this post that Mack and I plan to update our patio here soon! What I failed to mention in that post is that the adirondock chairs currently residing on our patio are lime green, yes you read that right. Now there’s nothing wrong with that if green is your style (and it was the style of the previous homeowners). However, as we’ve transitioned a once beach rental home into our permanent home, we’ve gone with neutrals and touches of pink pretty much throughout the whole house! Over time, those green chairs have become more of an eye sore as the rest of our home has come together! The one factor… patio furniture is so expensive. We were chatting with a friend the other day about just how expensive it is and how you never just need two chairs for a patio- you need the set and some cute outdoor decor which adds up quickly. Let’s just add that to the ever growing list of things no one ever told us about #adulting. Alas, the lime green […]
