When it comes to decorating kids’ rooms, you can never go wrong with animal themes. They’re great for girls and boys, and they never go out of style (unlike the Strawberry Shortcake TV set we hastily bought for my daughter’s room a few years ago). If that animal-themed decor also happens to be a place to put things away, I’m easily sold. These elephant hampers are cute, and they might actually make your kids want to put their dirty clothes in the right place
Spring does things to my mood. It makes me want to spend every waking moment outside, breathing in clean, warm air and watching from day to day as leaves grow back on once-bare trees and flowers start to bud. This desire has been amplified over the past few weeks. Weak as I have been from the flu, going outside always provides a burst of energy. And ever since I featured Modern Outdoor’s Talt patio furniture collection a few weeks ago, I’ve been obsessed with finding an equally stylish, equally green, but more affordable alternative.
After 2 weeks of trying to nurse myself back to health, I’m finally beginning to feel like myself again. I’m still a little sore and lightheaded, but overall, feeling much better. So, I wanted to give you an update about some of the things I’m doing and what’s coming up.
First, let me apologize for the extended delay in posts here at Green Your Decor. I returned from SxSW last Tuesday night, but I brought something back with me. The flu. Not to mention that my husband and daughter were already sick.
I am always inspired by photos of beautifully-decorated dining rooms with mix-and-match tableware. Flea market finds, family hand-me-downs and other pieces make their way onto the same table, and they all look great together. I don’t have a lot of dishes in different styles, and even if I did, I’m not sure I’d have the guts to use them all at the same time on purpose. The multiple solid color sets in Target’s Eco-friendly Square Dinnerware Collection might give me a slightly less traumatic way to mix and match.
