Painted Ceilings

by Jesse on October 27, 2014

This weekend I finally was inspired to make over our entry way. That pretty stencil pattern had run it’s course and it was time to change it up. I have been thinking of going dark on that wall since all of the other wall will be going a shade of gray white soon. So how do we get to talking about the title of this post?

While I was getting jiggy painting the entry way, I decided to paint the ceiling in our recently redone dining room. Have you thought of doing a dark color on a ceiling before?

I was seeing lots of pics via pinterest that were peeking my curiosity of doing a paint color on the ceiling that is different from the one on the walls. Well, I can honestly say I am loving having the dark color on the ceiling. I’ve paired it with a gray white wall.

Photo of my dining room are coming soon. If you follow my Instagram you will have seen a sneak peek of the paint color change. Meanwhile, here are a few photos that have inspired a little color on the ceiling.




Lovely, no?

Free Fall Printable

by Jesse on October 20, 2014

 I’ve been inspired by some simple posters lately, so I thought I’d create my own for a fall theme in our entry way.

Simple black and white.


I brought out our Kate Spade inspired Pumpkins.


This year I picked up a plain black craft pumpkin and used chalk to draw on our monogram with a simple border. That way when I’m into something different next year, I can change it up.

Ps. I’m getting ready to paint over  my stencil wall. It’s time for a change and it’s been like this for a few years now. That’s about as long as I can stand it before I need to change it up. lol!

So if, you’d like to download a copy of the “HELLO FALL” poster just click here!

Eye Candy

by Jesse on October 8, 2014

One thing I never tire of is a well put together space.

Like how this rug makes this room pop.


Or the visual interest the wood wall installed in a chevron pattern. Simple but gorgeous!


How dreamy is this long hall with ample space for a gorgeous gallery wall?


I could day dream all day long about ways to tweak our current home. Or design ideas I would love to try.

How about you?

I’m rather fond of  tattoos.  For me, each tattoo is a part of my journey in life. Marking a moment or helping me to project the strength that I need to keep running my race. So a little over a week ago I got a new one. It says “Persevere” Which means to :: Persist […]
