Deep, Dark, and Gorgeous

Navy, charcoal and coral.  Perfection.
The fam and I were visiting friends a couple weeks ago and when I saw her new bedroom decor I knew immediately I had to share. My iPhone pics cannot possibly do it justice, but you can clearly tell how gorgeous it is, right? 

This is the way to do deep and dark, y'all.  It is stunning.  Literally, I was speechless and that almost never happens!

The color of the walls is of course the show-stopper here, however the details my girl put into the room really make that color work.  She balanced the deep dark walls with hits of turquoise and coral, and layered the room with texture which to me adds to the romantic vibe just as much as the wall color itself.

Wondering how to get your husband to agree to trade your ceiling fan for a great chandy?  Here's how:

If you do a deep color like this, send pics!  Or maybe you already have a dark color in your home? Do tell...

I Made a Fairy Garden!

This Spring I finally made my own little Fairy Garden! 

It's called Lavender Lookout and in my imagination Lavender the fairy sits on her little bench overlooking the ocean.

I have wanted to do a miniature garden for years, and what stopped me was that all the larger flat containers I could find were way expensive.  Finally it occurred to me that--duh--simpler is better: use what you have, Michelle!  

So I took this pot that broke when some little hooligan I know ran his bike into it--and I used retaining fences and plants to prevent erosion.  I ended up loving it so much for its uniqueness and that's what I really wanted to share with you.  Don't be stopped from pursuing that next project because you don't have the "perfect" solution!  See what you have and get creative--you might end up loving it even more than what you originally had in mind!
