Hello, July and hello, my friends!

You *might* remember when I first introduced this room project with you and shared my Master Bedroom design board… almost…coughs… 2 months ago. Well, I’ve been working behind the scenes to bring my vision to life and so far, I have one section of the room ready to roll…the bed! Continue reading

Outdoor Summer Style | Backyard Deck Inspiration

*This post was in collaboration with Cost Plus World Market, however all thoughts, opinions and outright swooning are my own! This is our Bliss is a proud member of the Cost Plus World Market Blogger Trendsetter Tribe.

Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial nod to the start of Summer and if you are anything like us, we like to be OUTSIDE as soon as the Midwest weather starts cooperating! Having a comfortable and stylish outdoor space is important since it truly is an extension of our home in the warmer months. I started sprucing up our deck when I was at my local Cost Plus World Market store hosting an in-store DIY demo and fell head-over-heels in love with this outdoor pillow! I’m telling you, inspiration can strike at any time! You may remember it from when I shared it in my Fab Friday Finds Summer Stylin’ post! Continue reading

Truth be told, I’m usually the one who frantically grabs a few holiday-ish decor items from a packed-away storage bin to set out a few days before the holiday arrives. I don’t mean the Christmas holiday, I’m talking the little cutesy holidays throughout the year. Like, yes, Valentine’s Day. Even as a blogger, you won’t see me decking my house out to the nines in celebration of the day of love, but creating a simple, no-fuss mantel is something I can definitely handle! Continue reading

Inspiring Classic Black Interior Doors

Happy September and Labor Day weekend, friends! While we are planning to do a whole lot of nothing and lay low in the new neighborhood this weekend, I do have a FEW quick projects I’d like to wrap up. Most of them will take place in the biggest’s big boy room and I’ll be back next week to share an update on where we’re at! [If you missed my mood board for the big boy room, you can see it here.] Other than those odds and ends things and lots of family time, I’m also going to be picking out paint colors. And the paint isn’t for the walls. We are heading to the dark side and taking all of our interior doors with us!

Yes, black doors! Continue reading
