Be My Guest: An Organic Modern Guest Bedroom Makeover (With a Side of the Holidays)


A modern eclectic guest bedroom reveal, with affordable furniture pieces and DIY ideas.

With Christmas just weeks away and family coming in and out of town over the next month, I really, really wanted to get our guest bedroom in order. In fact, I meant to get it done when we had all our friends in Atlanta back in October, but I ran out of time. Story of my life.

Luckily though, thanks to some help from,  I was finally able to carve out some time to get that room into shape for holiday guests. And there’s even a Christmas tree, for good measure. :) Click through for the full reveal, including the (very) basic beginnings / before photos, etc…

A Space-Saving Christmas Tree Idea that Converts for Year Round Use After the Holidays


Space-Saving DIY Christmas Tree Idea that Converts for Year Round Use

Last year, I got so many holiday cards from friends and family in the mail, I didn’t know what to do with them all….my fridge isn’t magnetic (gasp) but I didn’t want to throw them away.

So, this year, I’ve come up with a way to display all those holiday cards (and other stuff – like prints, notes, etc that I want to keep handy) on a geometric bulletin board of sorts, that easily converts back to a non-holiday inspired shape after Christmas is over.

I’ve partnered with Mpix, an awesome photo lab and printing service that I’ve used many times (and genuinely love) – remember when I partnered with them on my living room reveal, to share this holiday inspired two-in-one DIY.

Holiday vibes with a pastel twist

Prop Shop: 7 Things I Bought (in Austin)

I’ve been collecting items for the next installment of Prop Shop, where I share recent things I’ve purchased (for shoots or otherwise).

And after my trip to Austin, I realized I have more than enough to share again. I might have gone a little overboard on that trip with buying props. But I’ll use them eventually. I pinkie swear.

Anyway, here’s what I’ve been buying lately…

Color Blocked Gift Wrap: Sewn Felt DIY Pouches


Color Blocked Gift Wrap: Sewn Felt DIY Pouches for Holiday Presents

When I was a little girl, I would ask my mom if I could wrap EVERY single gift under the tree. Including my own, whenever she would let me (she’d just wrap my gifts in old wrapping paper or newsprint ahead of time and then give them to me to wrap over with new wrapping paper) because I’m crazy. And to this day, years and years later, I’m still pretty fanatical about wrapping gifts during the holidays.

Which is probably why every year, I come up with a handful of new DIY gift wrap ideas to throw into the mix. I just LOVE it. Clearly, a little too much. ANYWAY, this year I’m kicking gift wrapping off with a whole different way to package gifts. I swapped out the wrapping paper and tape for a sewing machine and hand cut sheets of felt.

Unique DIY gift wrap idea

This color blocked pouch packaging idea is super fun for smaller gifts around the holidays (or any other time of year)….just nestle mini-sized presents between two pieces of felt, sew them together and you have a peek-proof color blocked gift pouch. Click through and I’ll show you how to make ’em. They’re really easy…
