I am a firm believer that design is never complete. After moving from a two bedroom condo into a house a couple of months ago, I found myself struggling to decorate all the rooms. I have purchased a couple of great pieces but still feel some of the rooms are incomplete. Since time is never on my side, I enlisted the help of SwatchPop!
SwatchPop! is an inexpensive online decorating service. First, you pick your project and create a name for your project. Second, you pick your “pop”. Each project starts at $49.95, you can add additional “pops” for $29.95.
I chose to focus on two projects, the wall across from our bed in our Master Bedroom and my Office. I did one “pop” in the Master and two in the Office. In the Master, I chose to focus on styling and accessorizing. I recently bought an acrylic stand from CB2 for under our TV and I am just not happy with how it looks. I’ve contemplated moving it over and adding a plant to take up more space along the wall but I couldn’t make up my mind.
After venting to SwatchPop! and filling out their very thorough profile checklist to effectively communicate my design style, I was on my way. They also let you attach your Pinterest board to make sure they are matching your style. I attached the picture below and provided some measurements.
Onto my Office dilemma…Since the whole room has me at a loss. I chose two “pops”. I wanted to focus on the layout of furniture and window fixtures. I sent the picture below…
Within under 48 hours, I received an email from Anu Sue, my designer…My projects were underway!
Drum roll, please!!! Here is the finished product in the Master. Ps- I love it!!
Isn’t it beautiful?? I love what they did! I already purchased the monstera leafs and the vase. Both very inexpensive. I love the stool that they picked out but I also found this one, so I am debating. Which one do you like better? Ps- they draw everything to scale, so no measurement surprises.
Que up the orchestra, because a drum roll is not enough for the Office reveal. SwatchPop! provided me two options for the office…
Which one do you like better? I love the first one with the banana palm curtains. It is like the knew I was from Florida and the fact that I melt over any type of palm print. To top off the design recommendations, SwatchPop! gave me step by step instructions on how to hang the curtains and place the accessories.
On a scale from 1 to 10 (10 being the highest), I give SwatchPop! an 11! It was such great experience, a quick turnaround, I never had to leave my couch, and the price cannot be beat. If that is not convincing enough to check out SwatchPop!, use code FashiontoaT for 10% off.
At any moment if my husband were to ask me what I wanted as a gift, I would be able to raddle off at least five things. The men in my life seem to be the complete opposite. I ask my husband what he wants and he says, “nothing”. I ask my dad, and he says, “nothing”. I ask my 22-year-old brother and he says, “nothing, well, I guess money”.
If you have the same problem, I have a solution! Meet Caddy Slacks! Caddy Slacks are golf pants and shorts that basically have a pocket/place for everything they need on the course. And to make our lives easier- they are non-iron. Each pair of pants and shorts comes with a logo ball mark and hang tag describing all the features which doubles as a beer/drink coaster!
Ladies- I promise your men won’t be disappointed. My husband loves the pants and I just order the shorts for him…And he is soooo picky!
Hello, friends! I don’t know about you but it is a constant struggle to pair booties and the perfect length pair of jeans. Not to mention the bigger struggle to make sure they hug your ankle perfectly. Now that temperatures are warming, it is the perfect time to find some great booties on sale. There are some trends that I wouldn’t suggest waiting until after the season to buy but luckily I don’t think the bootie trend is leaving anytime soon.
I can personally vouch for all of these Jeans. I own all of them. I kissed a lot of frogs/tried on a lot of jeans to find my prince/top lineup in denim.
Pair #1 by Current/Elliott from Nordstrom. Low rise, buy a size down (always a plus), and hit right above the ankle. They pair perfectly with an ankle bootie, such as these fab olive colored booties by Andrew Marc.
Pair #2 by Splendid. I also love leggings by Hue. These booties are perfect with leggings for a casual night out or even to slip on with your yoga pants.
Pair #3 by JBrand from Bloomy’s. JBrand is my go-to for denim. They are the perfect length, I am always the same size, and they consistently fit flawlessly. I love these jeans because they are longer and are still tight around the ankle, perfect for cuffing with booties or tucking into my new favorite booties by Chloe.
Pair #4 by JCrew. I just bought these and LOVE them. They are high-rise but not super high. They hit right at the ankle so they pair perfectly with a heeled bootie, like the Tiffany bootie from Andrew Marc. Side note- they come in black and dark brown.
I hope this line-up helps if you struggle denim length syndrome, like myself. Happy shopping!
