We’re doing our best to usher in summer and all the magic that comes with it. #ad#sponsored . Honestly, summer alone is enough to make me believe in fairies and unicorns and pots of gold at the end of the rainbow. . There’s something so magical about the busy days that are also slow and lazy at the same time. They’re as restorative for my soul as my home is. . I’ve always been inspired by the way a room feels and what emotions it sparks in me. We’ve been trying to bring in the summer feels with a few simple refreshes like switching out pillows and linens, and of course buying some plants. This beautiful Chloe Cotton Tufted Throw from @designer_living is EXACTLY what I was wanting for our bedroom to make the space feel new. . It’s light enough to use as a summer throw and wrap around your shoulders when playing games at night outside, but I love the color and texture of it so much that I couldn’t help but throw it over the bed where our darker tapestry used to be. . I’ve been so happy with my products from @designer_living that I can’t wait to show you the rest. They have so many affordable decor options that won’t break the bank, and you know that’s important to a girl who has a hard time buying new. . If you guys feel like checking them out I have a link in my bio that will take you right to their site! . Happy hunting and happy summer refreshing!! . . . . . . . . . . . . #gallerywallhashtag#broughttoyoubythrifting#currenthomeview#howivintage#myvintagerevival#myfleamarketstyle#thriftedhome#eclecticallyspeaking#eclecticallymade#rockmyvibe#crashbangcolour#grannychic#trimtreasures#mybombshellhome#colormyhome#bhghome#apartmenttherapy#saynotoemptywalls#designerliving #thisiswhyihavetothriftshopeveryday #benjaminmoore#myvintageabode
Something old, something new, something thrifted, something blue. . . . Wedding season is upon us, are you or someone special in your life getting married? Weddings get me every time 😭 . . . Also, if you are local go check out my cute neice and sister in laws pages for stunning photography and videography at @kleolsfilms and @tiffanyolsonphotography I mean how often can someone say my wedding videographer was on @nbcthevoice? Seriously though, they are both so great at what they do.
Good morning, all you lovely people, new and old friends! It was the sweetest surprise to have a share from Whitney @carpendaughter last night! So, if that's how you made your way here, WELCOME! I'm Levity, half of Big Birtha, and my fiance Clayton is the other half (well, I guess we're quarters if you count our pibble babies, Rinlee and Lula! 💖)! . . Last night's love really hit home what I want to do for you all. I didn't grow up with money, and neither did Clayton. I remember my mom taking me to thrift shops when I was younger and being so embarrassed. The home we rented for the longest had a mold issue, so we used Damprid in the closets, and I thought my clothes smelled weird. I would usually sit in the back of the classroom, and would always worry as I walked to the front that I smelled. I still feel uncomfortable when I'm around someone with money, or if there are two forks at a nice dinner. I don't really care for fancy restaurants. . . But you know what? My mom finds literally the most AMAZING things at thrift shops, and she's passed that love and eye down to me. Clayton and I both know the value of a dollar and what hard work is. How you work for what you want and you don't give up. I'm convinced that Clayton can do anything, and he is so solution oriented. And most of all, the money you do or don't make or your family does or doesn't makes does not give anyone a right to pass judgment on you. How much money you put into your renovation, where you buy your decor (I have picked things up on the side of the road, including a vintage Persian rug), if you bought something second hand, does not matter! I would not be who I am, or the creative I am, without my childhood and everything that entailed. I was blessed with parents who never told me I couldn't do something. There were no limits instilled in me for my abilities. I was (and am) loved, loved, loved and nurtured. And I was given the freedom to be who and what I wanted. . . I hope we are able to
What are your favourite souvenirs to bring home with you? We almost always bring food and I usually try to sneak in some plants or flowers, I even brought a piece of a cactus from Cyprus 😂 and this yellow stone is @mirel.oprea 's souvenir of Spain ☀️
Day 25 “Living room” @myhousethismonth “Me, myself and I” @storyofmyhome This room is the most “me, myself and I” room in our home, the “still to be decorated studio/office/living room...” I have a plan but am waiting to get this wall plastered before I start painting, it’s in need of a lot of work, but always gets a great reaction (sometimes ‘potential’ spaces are more exciting than ‘finished’ spaces), it has a really lovely energy to it so is still a gorgeous escape. It houses all my cushions that are in need of repair or are in need of a break from the boys (they really do give my cushions a hard time) I love to take a “time out” in here, there’s no tv but it’s home to my books and ‘arts & crafts’ bits and pieces, its basically a haberdashery/stationary shop/cushion hospital and there is music 👏👏 Anyone who checks out my stories knows I love to add a tune and @thebeatles are a favourite for me in this space-preferably whilst knitting 🎼🧶, this doesn’t happen often but I am trying to increase my ‘hobby’ time and lower my ‘screen’ time and the boys always follow me in here so it’s a nice habit to set up, the goal is to have a space that is about “living & doing” and less about “watching/staring” (While the weather is nice the garden calls but the next rainy day I’ll share some rows of knitting from my “living” room 😁) The decor is more ‘shabby’ than ‘chic’ but I love the raw walls (very down to earth @mycolourfulinterior) and I covered an old couch my dad gave me with Ikea curtains we had up in the hall before we got a new front door which funnily enough is now the main colour I’m loving for this room (a happey coincidence) with a big splash of yellow...watch this space 😉 Happey Saturday everybody x
