When you were growing up would you ever have dreamed that a cell phone could control parts of your home? I certainly never did. I didn’t even learn of cell phones that weren’t the size of bricks until I was much older. Fast forward to today and the smart home industry is one of the fastest growing out there. You can automate nearly every item in your home and control it with the swipe of your finger on your cell phone. Today I’ve partnered with Samsung again to share with you tips for installing SmartThings Wifi and how to style your smart home.
A while back, I got to take a tour of the Sunset Magazine Silicon Valley Idea Home and was completely blown away. Designer Lauren Nelson did such a good job, and I fell in love with every room I set foot in. I wished so badly that I could use it as an inspiration to redo our entire home, but luckily, I was able to get some great takeaways on how to do small, tasteful room refreshers with appliances and more. I partnered with Samsung to show some great tips for small spaces and to share things I loved about the Silicon Valley Idea House.
Last month we got to visit one of my favorite nearby destinations, Downtown Napa. During our stay we were hosted by Archer Hotel Napa. I had it on my wishlist for a long time so I was really excited to get to stay there, and from the photos I’m sure you can see why. The decor of the hotel was right up my alley and I’ve always loved to find home decor inspiration from hotels. Today I’m sharing a few more photos of our room and some tips to get the same look in your own home.
Ever since we moved into our new place, okay, ever since I found out we were going to move into our new place, I’ve been dreaming up ways to decorate it. Now that we’re settled in with our own things, I’ve been making a home decor wishlist using secret pin boards (via Pinterest) for each room that I want to update. Today I’m sharing my dream for a grayscale bedroom.
