  |   6 comments

Cliff diving in the Bahamas (Harbour Island)

Where do I even begin for this one. I have so many photos, I don’t know what to do with them all and some memories that I will never forgot… cliff diving, swimming with pigs, etc, etc.

Last month, Jeff and I went to Harbour Island (North Eleuthera) for the first time, with our friends Ashley and Jared and Ashley’s Dad, Mike. It was our July trip for the 12 trips in 12 months series. — And now that I’ve finally gone through ALL the photos, I’m sharing the highlights.

A Budget-Friendly DIY Backsplash Idea + Studio Kitchen Progress (with Before and Afters)

  |   20 comments

DIY budget backsplash for under $50! Click through for the step by step tutorial and before and after kitchen photos.

This post is sponsored by 3M. All opinions are my own and additional products used in the project were selected by me.

With all the white on white happening in the studio kitchen right now (white cabinets, white countertops, etc), I really wanted a pop of color (and pattern) for the backsplash. But instead of spending a whole lot of money on custom cement tiles, I decided to create my own. Sort of.

I teamed up with 3M and ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape to create a super budget-friendly tile option that mimics the unique patterns of those oh-so popular cement ones, using…..wait for it….peel and stick vinyl tiles.

This DIY route may sounds a bit strange, BUT I saved a ton of money and was able to create the exact color combo and pattern I was hoping for. Not bad, considering it only cost me $50!

24 of My Fave Books for Home Decor and Interiors Inspiration (on Amazon Prime)

24 Books (on Amazon Prime) with Amazing Interior and Home Decor Inspiration

I love that visual inspiration is right at our fingertips – on Instagram, Pinterest, etc. BUT sometimes my eyes need a break from a screen and I just have to go offline for inspiration.

Lots of times that involves a quick walk around the neighborhood or putting together a new style guides (which I physically hang up around the studio). But other times, I just want to open up an actual real life book – gasp! (not on an iPad or Kindle) for inspiration.

SO, I’m starting a little series that’s geared towards inspirational books and periodicals that are my go-tos for offline inspiration. They’ll be broken down into categories, like books for the interiors lover, the coolest magazines for creatives, etc, etc. And most are Amazon Prime! Are you into this idea?! Let me know because I’d love to hear your thoughts.

This color palette
Yesterday was packed behind the scenes, with some amazing ladies, for a fun shoot back at Providence Canyon. I was so happy to be back there again and helping out on something just for fun. Can’t wait to share the photos. Sneak peek after the jump.

As for the rest of this month, it’s been pretty adventurous too, especially with travel – I went to Jacksonville, Texas, North Eleuthera (Bahamas), and Orlando in July. So, I feel like I’m kind of nailing it for the 12 trips in 12 months series.
