I think the marble is beautiful! I could never get away with that in my current home, too Spanish ranch over here, but oh is it gorgeous!
Although as someone who has had two ER trips due to slick tile and water, I'd definitely keep the comments regarding water/slipping in the back of your mind! It's so not fun to fall hard into an awkward position on a cold hard floor an then realize something feels very very wrong! lol

Really gorgeous choice of marble though! I'm excited to see the finished product!!

I love this look!!! Makes the kitchen feel so much more like an inviting space than just a utilitarian one. I'm SO on board.

I just want to know how you keep your pouf looking so perfect! I have that same one and after a month of actual use it looks like it has been run over by a truck!

Hey there!
I have been growing some of these trees in my bedroom since about Dec/Jan. The first one I got was via Amazon, and it arrived looking like cooked spinach. I put it in my window, which mind you doesn't get a ton of sunlight in the fall and winter months, and the leaves browned and froze up. Many fell off.
I chose to remove the leaves that were mostly brown in order to relieve the plant from expending excess energy on them, and then watered only when the pot felt light and the soil felt pretty dry. I fertilized with miracle grow every other week - during the regular watering, not in addition to! - and after a few weeks new buds had appeared!
I've since picked up two larger plants which *knock on wood!* are doing very very well. This little plant is also now thriving, and has many new leaves.

I know people are advising against doing anything to cause the plant more distress, but in my experience, just removing the leaves that are damaged and essentially pruning it back have allowed a plant that truly looked to be on the verge of certain death to flourish! This is growing season, so there is no better time if you want to give it a try. Also, if the leaves all fall off, don't assume it's dead! As long as the woody stalks are not dry and brittle, it will probably come back!! Many plants just go into a little shock when in new environments and will drop leaves and get a bit sickly looking until they figure out their right size and growth rate for their conditions.

Also, hit up instagram. If you search the hashtag fiddleleaffig there are plenty of people successfully growing these plants who will give you some great advice!

I agree with AdrianeZ - I think intentionally reducing the life of your flooring is problematic. Not only is there an environmental impact in regards to replacing he wood sooner than anticipated, it's also extremely costly! And realizing you need entirely new flooring can not be fun!

I do admire the commitment to the project and can see where the lighting is perhaps not as flattering as it should be and doesn't do much to showcase the new character of the floors, but I personally love the before image!
But that is what is so amazing about this site, there is always something for everyone and it's really great to get a peek into other people's personal home style!

I was actually just at Target this morning, and found myself eyeing SO many things I totally don't need! That store is a bank account draining, beautiful death trap! I swear every conversation about overspending and 'what did I just do' shopping trips involves Target! Even as I was leaving I overheard two employees complaining about the same thing! lol
Rule no.1 should just be - Don't go to Target!!

I moved into a home with the ikea pendant as the diningroom light and its pretty fantastic! It's quite large and very unassuming and gives a really nice downcast light onto the dining table which feels cozy and calm. I'm so shocked its just a $39 fixture! It's great.

Every December I sit with my kids in their room and we empty out the toy boxes and go through the bookshelves and I'm always amazed too at the things my kids are willing to give away! Once beloved toys and old favorite books. It's incredible! But without fail every year we end up with a huge amount of toys we either donate to the local thrift store or charity. The books usually go to the school library because they are desperate for gently used books in good condition! I think it's an awesome way to clean out the old and make room for the new as well as teach your kids to let things go and be generous with others!

I truly am amazed at all the cowhide hate! It's so ridiculous. I mean, does nobody care about the geese and chicken and other fowl whose feathers were used to stuff those cool throw pillows? Does NOBODY care about the fowl??? Those pillows are cruel. ALL PILLOWS ARE CRUEL! Those BETTER be synthetic down pillows or else I will never read this blog AGAIN!

Does Turning Down the Heat Really Burn More Calories?

I totally agree! I casually watch that show too, mostly because living in L.A. the real estate market is crazy, so I like to torture myself by gazing upon amazing houses listed at a fraction of what an outhouse would cost you in a nice suburb here. But thats besides the point! All the complaints of ugly paint colors and bad light fixtures drive me nuts. Painting is NOT that hard. And replacing light fixtures? Awesome way to completely change a room and you can do that on a serious budget. Giant bedrooms all painted pink? Are you crazy, you hit the jackpot people! Time to memorize the layout of your local Lowes!

I recently just moved into a house where apparently they did this... The closet in the kids room is open and stripped, and although I have two kids in that one closet-less bedroom, I think it's wonderful! I'm actually planning on playing around with the space this weekend so this post was completely awesome to find!
That being said, my kids have tons of clothes, toys, and lots of useless stuff. I don't feel like we're hoarders at all, but I also feel like we have may more than we need and not having a big closet for it all to get lost in is a blessing!
I'm planning on making my kids go through all their toys and give away a good deal of it, same with their clothes. And am looking for some affordable beds with built in unserved storage for their clothes. I think the added space is a definite gift, even of its small. And when they're older they can convert the closet back to its original intended purpose, or but a desk in there and viola! You have a study nook. Win win.

There is always a creative solution for everything and changing your space around like this breathes great life into rooms for kids. I'm very much on board with this trend!
