diy: our favorite wallpaper 

From L:

You guys. I swoon every time I see Thibaut Tanzania wallpaper. I fantasize about using it in every room of my house: dining room, powder room, bedroom…CLOSET. But I have one problem: it’s kinda spency. I can’t bring myself to pull the trigger.

So imagine how excited I was to see this DIY on Simple Details blog for a look-alike. With just a few tweaks to a cheetah print stencil, you can paint your walls to look ALMOST EXACTLY LIKE the wallpaper of my dreams.

PSA: My husband, who owns a mold mitigation business, really likes this idea because – as a lot of folks will tell you – wallpaper can trap moisture, hide leaks, and create all manner of chaos in your home. Much better to stencil on paint walls!

View the real thing in these amazing rooms, then try your hand at the DIY!

friday five: things we love.

We have a sneaking suspicion that the weather is not going to cooperate with our pool/beach plans this weekend…so we might just spend the next 48 hours shopping on our phones. These five things top our must-have list!

1 // Gingham Shirtdress. Timeless and seasonless. This cotton dress by Shop Social Dish is easy and breezy now paired with sandals; it’ll also work in the fall with classic riding boots. Use secret code GLITTER when you check out to get 10% off!

2 // Pineapple Phone Case. We actually love several of the offerings at this Etsy shop. L is probably ordering this pineapple case as we speak.

3// Kate Spade Tote. We’re more than in love with this light grey Cove Street Tote. Perfect color, great shape…oh, and it’s on sale.

4 // ASOS Larissa Flats. J actually scooped these crazy cute flats earlier this week. So summer-y paired with a chambray shirt and white ripped skinnies. They also come in black, for those of you who aren’t as into pineapples as we are.

5 // South China Seas Pillow. L continues to be obsessed with all things chinoiserie. This coral pillow (the print is Thibaut’s South China Seas) would be amazing on a navy sofa. We’ve used this Etsy seller before – great stuff. So. Many. Pillows.

design project: bedding redo.

From L:

Maybe it’s spring fever, I don’t know…but I have been ITCHING to upgrade the bedding in my bedroom. It’s never been anything special – just a duvet cover from Target, TJ Maxx, etc that I switch out every few years. A few weeks ago, with the help of our friend Kristin at Alva + Austrie, I finally pulled the trigger and ordered real, grown-up pillows. I’m so happy with how it turned out – it’s an interesting mix of patterns (which I NEED/LOVE) in simple shapes and mostly primary, not-too-feminine colors (both of which are necessary to maintain my happy marriage).

WHAT I STARTED WITH:

I already had some basics I was happy with: a grey velvet headboard from Urban Outfitters that I bought when Joe and I got married (almost ten years ago!) and new, simple all-white bedding (duvet + matelasse coverlet).

WHAT WE ADDED:

{Euro Shams} in one of my favorite fabrics, Thibaut Tanzania. Buy them here.

The Glitter Life Bedroom
euro shams in a straightforward – but still fun – print.

{Standard Shams} featuring a simple, black border by Crane + Canopy. Buy them here. Fun fact: every package from this company ships with a lavender sachet enclosed! I spent an embarrasing amount of time inhaling the one that accompanied my shams. Another fun fact: a handwritten note from “Brittany” was enclosed as well – she hopes I love my shams! Crane + Canopy gets my vote for Mail Order Company Most Likely to Make Your Day.

i only ordered one set of standard shams.

{Throw Pillows} I actually already had two throw pillows in this amazing palm print…they were living at Social. Every time I passed them in the store I thought about how much I wanted them in my house. So I moved them! Buy them here.

{Lumbar Pillow} in Brunschwig + Fils “Gillian’s Zebras.” I knew I wanted a whimsical print accent on the bed, and Kristin and I both fell in love with this one. Buy it here.

I’m not finished with the room (is any room ever finished?!), but at least now the bed makes me really happy. Have you upgraded any of your rooms this spring?
