My Favorite Decorating Tips From Pinterest

Pinterest is my go-to whenever I am in need of some inspiration. Whether it’s for interiors, party planning or personal style, there are so many great tips and tricks you can find on Pinterest. Today I’m sharing fire of my favorite decorating tips from Pinterest.

1. Make An Entrance 

The entry way is one of my favorite spaces within a home. In my opinion, it’s one of the easiest ways to make a statement and set the tone of your home. I love this colorful photograph as the main focal point in this entry way. The white paneling mixed with the wood frame and bench. Incorporate shoes, hats and coffee table books for a lived-in feel.

2. Up Your Kitchen Style

We all know everyone congregates in the kitchen. Up your kitchen style by mixing the style of chairs or incorporate a bench. I also love layering on a sheepskin blanket on some of the chairs for extra texture within the space.

3. Embrace Greenery

Last year I wrote about how to take care of a Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree but I’m seriously obsessed with them. Incorporating greenery (especially in small spaces) is one of my favorite ways to bring a room alive – literally.

4. Create A Bathroom Retreat

I love perusing different bathrooms on Pinterest. I came across this image below via Domaine Home and noticed how simple it is to create a bathroom retreat. Take a cue from luxury hotels and hang white robes on the wall for a plush vibe. Stack neatly rolled towels within a basket for storage. Incorporate candles to set the mood.

5. Organizing Can Be Pretty

When decorating small spaces, storage is so key. One thing I’ve learned from Pinterest, is that clutter is not pretty. What is pretty is nicely organized shelves and storage units. Floating cabinets are one of my favorite storage tricks in any space. They elevate a room and what’s even better is that you can store so much crap inside of them. Bye clutter!!!

Weekend Notes

Woop! We made it through the week, ya’ll. This one was a busy one for me. I had something literally every single night – I hate it when that happens! Tonight will be dedicated to all of the R&R with a side of Bruce Jenner. Anyone else going to be watching the Diane Sawyer interview?!
