Well, hello there! I hope that your week is going well. I wanted to share a new addition to our living room. If you remember at the first of the year, I embarked on "Operation Lighten Up". Charles and I lived in "Brown Town" since we moved into our house 5 years ago. Our walls were taupe. Our furniture was dark brown leather. The curtains were cream with dark brown trim. The fireplace surround is a brown and beige mosaic tile. And finally, our hardwood floors are dark in color. Sheww! I had a LOT of brown going on. So I decided to jump on the grey bandwagon and started incorporating grey, creams and white into our downstairs living area. I have to say that I love the lighter colors and our home is much brighter.
Good Evening! I am popping in to share another quick and easy DIY art project. About a month ago, I was browsing Restoration Hardware's website for some home decor ideas. I absolutely love the Restoration Hardware look but their prices....not so much.
Today is my first post in a new series here on the blog. I have thought about this series for a while and decided to give it a go. What is VERSUS you may ask? Each Versus post will include a higher price home decor item or piece of furniture that I will compare to a lower cost version of the same or similar item. Essentially, high price versus low price. So lets get started.
Last week, we ushered in the fall season. I had just finished with our Farmhouse Fall Tour of Homes and realized that in a little over a month I will be decorating for Christmas. Yes, I decorate in November! #earlydecorator. Please don't hate me.
Some life changes are bittersweet. Some changes bring on an excitement for something new. Yet, other changes may leave you looking back with sadness. Today, this change is one of those changes. Charles and I started The Refined Relic in 2013 on a whim. We wanted to try our hand at a creative business. Our purpose was to give new life to old things and we did. You can read more about our story here and here.
