Art in Motion
My husband is a pilot, so I had him take pictures of clouds while he was flying to use as art in this room. To make the all-white, IKEA Ribba frames pop, I painted the insides red. I love how the red ties in the lamp.

Because my son's room is small, I couldn't put too much furniture in it. I tried to make the few pieces I had stand out, which is why I upholstered his headboard in a vibrant and bold fabric.

A Touch of Pink
My daughter's nursery is one of my favorite rooms in the house. I love the pop of pink from the upholstered chair. I found this chair on Craigslist for $25 and had it recovered in a vibrant bright pink.

Simple & Sweet Nursery Decor
I tried to keep the art and accessories minimal in this room because it is such a tiny space. The art above the crib is sentimental and sweet.

Room to Play
Our playroom is a lifesaver for us. We spend hours down in this room playing together as a family. I wanted the space to feel imaginative, youthful, and also well-designed.

I loved playing dress up as a kid, so I knew that was something I wanted to incorporate into the playroom. We used a small corner to display some cute dress-up clothes, and the full-length mirror enables the kids to see how cute they look!

Creative + Colorful Storage
We have a lot of random toys, so I was pretty excited to get them all organized. I love that the bottom of these shelves can store larger bulky toys. Baskets and large bins corral big cars, blocks, and balls.

In our master bedroom our bed is against an off-center window. We solved this problem by using curtains to create the illusion that the window is longer than it actually is.

Deck the Walls
I stenciled an accent wall and then framed prints from an old calendar to create this look in our master bedroom. The whole design cost me under $200 -- frames and all! Framing calendar art has since become one of my favorite decorating secrets.

Everything in my living room was an incredible deal. I got my garden stool for $10, my love seat for $250, and the large clock behind the sofa was $50!
