~a chalkboard inspired by schoolhouse electric~

Schoolhouse Electric is the coolest store.
They even have a great catalog, which I'd read over a romance novel any day.
So I swiped up this gigantic green chalkboard at a college surplus store for my own home with a Schoolhouse chalkboard knock off in mind.

But when I brought it home I realized it was way to big, so I tried to sell it at my flea market.
Well, it didn't sell, and lucky me, because I actually found the perfect spot for it.
I LOVE it in the mudroom!

I love the saying, 
Less house, more home.

It took forever to write, so I sealed it with a matte spray sealer so it won't smudge.

The rug is from here.
The books are stored in crates from here.
The black and white pillows are from Ikea.
The kilim pillows are from here.
The cushion cover was custom made by Tonic Living.
Stool, garage sale find.

~the "outside" of our house~

I am always showing interior projects, updates, etc. so I thought it would be fun to show just a couple pictures from the yard while the grass is mowed and the flowers are in bloom!

Same bunch of hydrangeas, just a view looking the other way towards the lake.

My window boxes need to be repaired, but I think they will hold in there one more year.
I love the giant rhododendrons that are taller than our house!

I cannot get enough hydrangeas this year!

Just a little peek around, but I hope you enjoyed it!

~dark bedroom walls~

I live and breathe design.
And when I see a great space, I love to share it.
These bedrooms caught my eye, for their dark rich color, among other things…..

And of course, my own room:

I think dark walls, when mixed with colors and whites can look very bright and cozy all at the same time!

~between you & me signs GIVEAWAY~

I have so many Between You And Me signs in our house.
I love them so much. I think I have one for every season.

When I made over our basement/mud room I hung two outside the doors under the overhang.

And that holiday sign stayed, and stayed, and stayed, even through spring and part of the summer.
So I finally had them make me a new one inspired by…….
you'll see……..

No, I am not changing the name of my blog.
But I've always loved this saying, and looking around our property, and seeing all the boxwood, I knew it was a perfect fit.

This boxwood lines the path to the front door.

And going up the back steps to the back door, you guessed it, more boxwoods.

In front of the garage on either side of the door we have 2 huge boxwoods shaped in spheres.

 So it seemed fitting don't you think?
