Command Centre Success

Remember when I said I would do the command centre myself? Well. that was a lie.  a) who has the time? b) I secretly wanted to splurge on the Pottery Barn Daily System

I only bought the chalkboard, letter organizer and small cork board from PB, the bigger cork board is from Walmart, I plan to hang a calendar and other stuff from there.  I don't like dry-erase calendars because I find that I need to have a look at previous and next month's activities for planning purposes.  Note to all planning on buying PB Daily System: the one thing PB doesn't tell is that the system should only be mounted on a flat wall where you are able to "slide" the sections onto their mounting bracket.  I had the most difficult time finagling those things on there since it is a recessed wall.  Needless to say, they aren't going anywhere for a very long time.

I haven't decorated it yet  but here it is in its "raw" form.  

Stay tuned for this puppy decorated in the next few weeks.  

Till next time...

Get Our %*#@ Together

OK, its time for some organization. Things were cool being on-the-fly when it was just me and hubby, but add a 15 month old into the mix and there is some need for structure..which is what I do best. I LIVE for organization and planning and love finding ways to make things better. I have to admit, though, I am better at this at work and I tend to get a bit overwhelmed at home. Sufficed to say, I am ecstatic to bring a little "work-type organization" into the home. Which leads me to my point.....I'll be implementing a Family Command Centre; a central area where we can post important dates and the like. Pictures explain it better than I can :)

Apparently they sell these things at Pottery Barn....Haven't decided if I'll break and buy them or make myself a little DIY project this weekend.

Ill keep you posted :)

Till next time

Destination: Decoration

We recently moved into our new home and although things like the kitchen were already renovated, I have a few ideas of what I want to do with the rest of the place.  In my last home, I had a wonderful colour on the walls throughout the house called "Smoke" by Benjamin Moore; a lovely cool blue-greyish hue that went well with my decor.  This house, I opted for a clean off white pallet with neutral shades throughout.  Today, the January/February issue of Lony Magazine was released and I saw some things I just adore. Since I am all about decorating lately, I thought I would share some of my favourites with you.

 Love the contrast

 I'm all about crowns...the skull is a little freaky.

white, white, white!


Till next time....
